    OK, now my two bits on this. I'm seriously becoming disappointed in this games development. So many promises not kept from the initial game design that we were shown back just before the crowd funding was started - and as one of those backers it ticks me off that the game is being made into a clone of EVE instead of actually staying true to Elite.



    Next year they are fixing things or adding things that should have been done ages ago. Beige planets were caused by the developers screwing up the graphics engine(should have been fixed long ago). Guilds should have been in game year one(not added as an after thought in the 5th year of development). Second we were told we'd have space-legs, atmo-flight and landing, and be able to actually get out of our ships and explore with our characters. Now we're being told that that has been put on the back burner and well it'll get added eventually - someday...maybe down the road.



    Where is this awesome star map system that has yet to see the light of day.

    Where are all the alien species that were in the original game? Instead all we have are humans and Thargoids and we don't even yet know what Thargoids look like. Really...4 years and we have a game filled with place-holding mechanics, poorly implemented mechanics(don't get me started on the lame system of getting around in a planetary system - one we can't make small jumps in from planet to planet - or from a planet in system to a planet in another) and the game is just a reflection of what Elite was back in the day.



    Seriously...I love what ED was supposed to be...but not where is is going. So disappointed.

    Yeah I agree on most point here, I said as much in the other thread about this. One thing I would like to add though is the stuff like space legs have no point until the basic gameplay stuff, like mentioned here is added.

    If ED is not careful SC is going to sneak up on them.


    Btw here's what I posted in that other thread the other day:

    Frontier Expo
    • We watch a video of four Thargoids chasing a Cobra Mark 3, before one of the Thargoids turns to us and initiates a scan.
    • Enthusiasm of working on the game in its 3rd year remains high.
    • Behind the scenes video of the ED team hard at work. This team clearly cares about their work and the content they’re delivering, as well as the passion the community has for the game.
    • 2018 updates will be focused on three areas- Core Game Improvements, Narrative Expansion, and new features which build on the first 2.
    • Season 3 of Elite Dangerous is called “Beyond”.
    • 2018 roadmap – Q1, Core improvements, followed by 2 more updates delivering new ships, missions, scenarios. More on Q4 in a bit.
    • Q1 – A bunch of QoL improvements.
    • Engineering improvement – when rolling a blueprint spin, that spin will always be better than the previous spin.
    • Improvements to system authority.  new improved crime and punishment system
    • Improved Trade Data. Traders rejoice!
    • Wing missions! Suppose to be harder than solo missions
    • Asset polish to planets in Q1 2018 (Shaders and Graphs).
    • Wide variety of planetary color variation. In Q1 2018 end to the great beigefication!
    • Narrative improvements.
    • Another video. SRV visiting Guardian base. Intercepted by Thargoid. Oh, it doesn’t like Guardian Tech! Example of narrative thread which Frontier will be expanding on.
    • Q1 will continue the Guardian story. New experiences, CGs, players working together.
    • Personal narrative will be expanded.
    • Ohh, new equipment! A new weapon, a gun of some-kind, and what looks like scientific equipment/sensors are on the way! Related to personal narrative.
    • Frontier not done with Guardians, not by a long shot.
    • Galnet update!!! New feature, Galnet Audio which will read out Galnet articles while you’re in flight in your cockpit.
    • New ships!!!
    • “A lot more ships in incoming updates”
    • New ship shown – the Chieftain– work in progress mesh shown. It’s an answer to a dangerous universe and return of Thargoids. It’s an Allance-Lakon vessel, a more military Lakon vessel.
    • More alliance ships on the way!
    • Another new ship announced - then the 1984 version of the Krait is shown! Cue biggest cheer of the night! Then 2018 re-design shown. Unique cockpit placement among with hardpoint placement.
    • Q4 will be largest update for 2018 – there will be a new organisation structure for player groups called Squadron (guilds). Create your own, featuring enhanced communication options regardless of what squadron members are doing in the game.
    • Squadrons can purchase their own fleet carriers! Large, mobile, dockable ships. Squadron members can refuel, rearm etc.
    • Mining improvements! Improvements to detection and extraction of materials. Frontier looking to improve Wild-West feel of prospecting.
    • Concept art of ice planet shown, enhancements coming to planetary surfaces and environments.
    • Improved lighting model, both space and planetary.
    • Improvements to scatter-rock planetary system to improve placements of rocks and other surface objects.
    • Improvements to localised ambient effects including fog.
    • Exploring improvements, to how you find stuff.
    • New feature – the Codex will log your discoveries. It will also serve as an encyclopaedia, and will hint at other potential discoveries for explorers.
    • For explorers, there will be new exploration content and new anomalies to go out and find.
    • There’s a lot more content to be revealed in ED: Beyond. And its all going to be free to Horizons players.
    • But what about 2.4? Sneak peek video!
    • Is that the Type 10? It could be a Type 9 to be honest. Typing and watching so I could be mistaken.
    • SRVs at deserted Inra base.
    • Thargoid ship destroyed in space. One of the human Commanders scoops up something (a Thargoid probe?) at which point 3 Thagroid Interceptors jumps in and unleash swarms of Thargons.

    Same thing for me I was interested and then I watched a youtube video of some guy trying to land or take off no sure which and it looked too hard for me.

    Not hard at all it just looks it.

    1. Approach station
    2. open coms panel, go to contacts tab choose station ask permission to dock
    3. Once given take note of which landing pad you are given
    4. fly towards slot or landing pad, you can boost in but there's a speed limit of 100 so lower that to a little under 100 as you enter slot to avoid fine and lower landing gear
    5. look for your Landing pad number as you enter, big glowy yellow box
    6. land on pad.

    An even better practice I'm into is not lying and making up shit to fit a narrative. You should try it.

    Also the topic is not Frontier Expo 2017.
    Really here's you caught in a lie,

    lol I like how you are putting all the ED players in 2 boxes.. either "They can do no wrong, best space game EVA" or "Pretty lame additions not well done."

    I'm neither of those.. i'm more a "I want them to add all these things to improve it, but I can wait patiently because I'm patient and want a high quality product" type of person. 
    ..snip..
    This is a lie cause I never said there was two camp only, I made a comment about those two camps because they are the two polar extremes which is pretty clear to see if you read or quote ALL the relevant stuff in that same post.

    Look at the same post again,

    Asm0deus said:
    ...snip...

    Basically there are some people than think FD can do no wrong and have built the bestest most amazing space game EVA and some that think what has been added is pretty lame and not well done.

    It's up to everyone here to decide which camp they are in or hopefully like myself are not in either and think ED has lots of possibilities ...snip...

    Oh look you have been caught lying by omission!

    Oh and the expo is relevant because it will give us real information on what to expect in the "near future" of ED which is quite relevant to this thread.
    Nothing I said is a lie and that's not even a nice try..you absolutely broke it down into two groups.. specifically two.

    *confused face* 


    Ok..I'm going to help you out using your  quote:

    Group 1: "Basically there are some people than think FD can do no wrong and have built the bestest most amazing space game EVA"
     
    GROUP 2: "and some that think what has been added is pretty lame and not well done."

    Then you followed up.. solidifying your two group theory with:

    "It's up to everyone here to decide which camp they are in or hopefully like myself are not in either and think ED has lots of possibilities"

    Now what I said and please read slowly:

    " lol I like how you are putting all the ED players in 2 boxes.. either "They can do no wrong, best space game EVA" or "Pretty lame additions not well done."

    I'm neither of those.. i'm more a "I want them to add all these things to improve it, but I can wait patiently because I'm patient and want a high quality product" type of person. "


    This is really funny because you think you are proving a point by quoting what I said.. but what you said supports my point exactly. 

    tbh What are you talking about. I never lied. What I said is exactly what you did.

    This is what I'm talking about..you and this failing narrative. Please stop responding. 



    Dude the very first sentence in my next paragraph was a direct qualifier of what I was meaning in the previous.  Is English not your first language?  The two "groups" are called "paragraphs". Just because a subject is split into paragraphs does not equal unrelated.

    You lie by claiming I said there was two groups and that is it.

    When what I was clearly saying was there's two extremes being such and such and that hopefully most people fall somewhere in between these two extreme polar opposites.

    You are lying to try and fit me into YOUR narrative and have been caught red handed, man up already.

    But that's not a bad thing.  If they can deepen the core mechanics of the game then great. For example, exploration is acceptable right now, the places you can go are great, some are really impressive but the mechanics behind it are quite lacking, if they improve those things it only makes for a better game.

    It'll be interesting to see what they discuss for next year at their expo later on today.


    Indeed I think it is a good thing as pretty much what I have been saying is that the core gameplay is lacking.  I feel because the core gameplay is lacking the little other content they add is by default lacking as it relies on core gameplay.

    This is how I know you just want to argue. I literally showed you where the guy says he wants to add item x and item a and you still say its hogwash.. why? Because its not happening in the time-frame you want it to?

    I never said its happening right away. Stop creating that narrative. I never said all this is coming soon..  I said its happening, its in the works.. and its based on his word. I trust his word over yours when it comes to development of the game sorry.
    Practice what you preach otherwise your armor gets dull real quick. 
    That is all.


    Anyways to get back on track:

    Frontier Expo 2017
