It would be a funny paradox when we think that David was against the premature release by Game Tek, of First Encounter which had a lot of bugsUm, if Braben was not involved the game would have ceased to be run years ago, if it ever got started at all. He's the main fan of Elite!
He doesn't seem interested any more would seem to be the point.Um, if Braben was not involved the game would have ceased to be run years ago, if it ever got started at all. He's the main fan of Elite!
This makes me sad. I remember David excitedly describing the new neutron star cones, new features of Elite, the future of the game... and now?He doesn't seem interested any more would seem to be the point.
When was the last time he communicated with what's left of Elite fans.
and yet, it is very significant that, in their own words, some kind of mythical "new era" has been under development for full production for 13-14 months. and they still can’t even show a short teaser or a few screenshots, or even just talk about what you can expect from it in theory.This makes me sad.

It looks like no one cares about E that much except for the players themselves.
iirc:I'm at SOTHIS - CEOS right now.
- Selling Explorerdata to a station where the Federation is the leading fraction is not increasing the rank for the Federation !
- I scanned every ship in the area, no data collected at all !
Missions to Rank up something is wrong....many Datetransfer Missions turned in and give me only 3% ranking up !!!
Spent 1 Mio. Credits....ranked up 1%...
FD ... this is not funny anymore ...
Rename ELITE to SPACEBALLS...which is such funny as well !
people have a right to be angry.Nothing aginst discussing bugs. Toxic and whiney nagging, that's what I was talking about.
hmm, how would you tell, all these years there has been civilized communication, fd showed that they do not understand civilized behavior.
and yes. people have the right to demand normal work from the fd, because people are concerned about the fd's actions and the future of the elite.
I was wondering the same thing.So, when are we getting the next patch?
I'm probably less effected by these bugs than some, but I don't have much motivation to play knowing that the current game IS buggy and broken and held together with server-hacking ducktape. Speaking of, I'm beginning to understand Frontier's obsession for ducktape in cockpits, LOL.I just want to get back in the saddle.
