    Wow... I just discovered this game last night... I've not got it yet but wow...

    I was such a fan of Freespace 2 and I'd given up finding anything that would live up to that (other than FSO project) but this looks great!

    After bumbling about for a bit, I've now 'upgraded' to a Hauler. Feels like a Nissan Micra in space, but at least it has 4x the cargo capacity of the Sidewinder. Hopefully I can make some credits now and get into the Cobra Mk III. Just like the old days...

    I'm so bummed. I've only got enough in a "games" budget for GTA5 when it comes out on PC... Who would have thought trying to pay for a house and start a new business while working full time for some else would be so expensive haha...

    At least after all that there isn't really any time to play games so I don't really know what I'm missing out on. Wait, that's not a good thing! (lol)

    I'll keep an eye out for you! The instancing seem to be an issue still, though. I'm Teller Bascule in-game, as in my signature.

    Arggh so many bugs have made me dead so many times and yet, its not those that "bug" me about the game. I'll not worry this forum with my grievances though, I've aired them enough on the beta forums ^^ - shouldnt be hard to spot there, I'm using the same icon and name :p

    I'll add names to my friends list later.

    I'm CMDR Quoth T Raven

    I've shelved it for the moment - probably until the next Beta release. Have lost my Cobra twice to kamikaze Sidewinder AI and was not given the option to buy back under insurance despite having enough cash but to start off in a free Sidewinder. Second time I raised a ticket after advice that this is a known bug.

    Nice, share ur handle.

    For you TOG'ers out there, when I am on Elite Dangerous, I will be on TOGTS1 under Any Game Channel. It would be great to meet some like-minded people :) Me thinks this may be a growing community in the making.

    If we join as a group, where do you spawn? Has that been nutted out?

    For argument sake, say that the entire galaxy is now available and during my last play I docked at IBootis. Now you've gone and explored and are now thousands of light years away from IBootis. If I join you, do I spawn where you are or do I have to make my way to you from IBootis?

    Maybe if joining as a private group then you may start wherever you like?

    I haven't had time to play too much the last week or so, I'll probably get more time later down the line. Much as I'm liking it so far, its still quite early beta and with somewhat limited things to do - I have to admit I'm in the "a bit frustrated by the slow SC" crowd. I used to use auto-pilot and 4 times speed in Frontier which typically meant for a 15 second travel time!

    Spending time travelling and docking is not particularly what I've loved about previous versions of Elite and spending hour upon hour trading, most of which is down to SC mode, isn't exactly floating my boat right now (particularly after a weekends efforts being blown to bug-gery (pun intended)).

    P.S. Friended everyone on the list.

    Got my Cobra Mk III after an endlesssss stint of trading runs. -Outfitted with C2 Missiles and C3 gimballed gatlings! Went to pirate territory to snag me' some pork. Some Viper spawned in to challenge but left to hyperspace in a hurry at the first sign of a broadside.
    Whizzed around some more and came across a known name from Arma3 servers 'OziBattla'. -"Nice ship" and then spaced away before I could utter my "GIMME UR CARGO!!".
    In the end I got jumped by two Cobras.. They had missiles too and I discovered the hard way that I had no chaff (only an empty dispenser!). The way from hero to zero was brutally short.
    Luckily I had enough cash stashed away for such an event and got my ship and configuration back, but for a pretty penny.

    SIDEKICK NEEDED! :D
