    Sure! 1) Open galaxy - i like. We can see the stars in the sky and with advances in tech by the 30th century its not unreasonable to think the whole galaxy wouldn't be mapped, especially with FSDs to move around. 2) In the middle here. I like...

    I'd like NPC's to drop more G5 materials. Nearly all my G1-3 manufactured materials are full, but my G4-5 materials are quite low because they are very rare to drop usually, despite some NPC's being rather difficult to take down, like Wing...

    Thats how they DID design it. However, its not how they implemented it. Since that initial "simpler" implementation, most changes have been to make it even MORE simple, rather than more engaging, but as someone else so eloquently put it, you cant...

    Thank you Frontier for the new features and fixes. Please keep developing Planet Coaster.

    It's a little inconvenient, but for a small squadron (1-10 players) you could just disband and reform the squadron to get around this.

    Which is why we use technology to alleviate the problem. Seating and suits designed to make sure the blood flows and behaves in a way that delivers oxygen to your brain. This technology is also being actively developed these days and is evolving...

    Wait a sec everyone. Talking about G-forces sorry but the deadly machine is not the ship itself but the ☠LANDING PAD!!! ☠ The L-495 in Moscow is the larges centrifuge in the world used to train astronauts. The centrifuge has an arm of 18 meters...

    Nothing I can do about that i'm afraid. All I can do is try to come with ideas that could make the FSS a better system. Not that I think FDev will ever look at them let alone implement them.

    The greatest single aspect of ED is without doubt Stellar Forge and the recreation of a 1-1 galaxy with all the variety that RNG can muster with 400 billion potentially unique outcomes. Unfortunately, almost every single decision made about...

    There are some in the map, so I suggest more here. If the people in charge of the map decide not to add them, it's fine, they decide. Anyway, I think that a system with three Earth-Like Worlds is definitely a PoI.

    It really does open up the ride to a whole new level of creativity, I've been using the new features for a little while and have become addicted to setting up little scenes that get triggered when you shoot a target! It's also useful for setting...

    Erm, what was I supposed to do? Guess? Read into the ol' Crystal Ball? Cast a spell? I admit I did not, the first thing I did was press 1 and look up destination stations. That's an overly simplistic (and puerile) excuse for a game mechanic...

    It’s interesting though that the CG was approved, since FD are selective about CG submissions and check them against the storylines. So perhaps (I live in hope 🤩) at some stage we will be able to communicate with goids to find out why: UA point...

    Thanks for doing the maths, but I guess that even small ship in ED generate forces way above 5g easily. And what about "landing" at 200m/s? Anyone remember a similar scene from The Expanse? ;-)

    Not in its current state, obviously. Intent could be measured easily by assessing certain factors, such as: Repeatability: was there ONE shot or many? Continuity: was the engagement short (1-2 seconds) or did it last for minutes? Chronology: was...

    Space is big, things are far from each other & part of the game is deciding whether a particular place is worth the travel time to get to. I'm doing an election at the moment, mostly just delivering data missions to distant ports. I am prepared...

    In FFE there was an interspecies translator, that let you do text communication with Thargoids. It was supposedly made by the Thargoid and given to some humans(possibly INRA), during the war in about 3150. It was hidden and not used until the...

    Mechanics aside, yes that is exactly (conceptually) how they should have designed exploring/charting the galaxy.
  • Faded Glory
    Yep, completely understand, and agree, it takes no real extra time, and as I've said from the begining, it's very quick anyway. :) Problem is, for me the FSS simply isn't compelling enough gameplay to use 'for the sake of it'... To find out if...

    The weight doesn't really matter. The federal corvette is 87m wide, let's assume you stand to the side at 40m from the center of mass. The federal corvette can constantly roll at 83 degrees per second, which means that you have a sustained 9G...
