Thought this was a very nice showcase of ED's visuals , current assets and gameplay , shown possibly in 4K resolution. A player made video posted on yt yesterday, using the camera suite , punctuated with a very few minor outside game embellishments. Recommended to play muted as the voice tends to be distracting.

Yeah, I saw that earlier. So cool.
Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

That looks really good, I finally upgraded my gpu but I'm stuck at 1080 till the PT-AE8000U kicks the bucket.

Elite: Dangerous Battle Cards (@EDBattlecards)

Interesting development, looks very nice. I'd be tempted to buy it just for the "coffee table" decor as a fan, if not for the actual card game playing.

I haven't played ED since I first bought it when it first came out.  I may have to reinstall it and see what all has changed since...which I'm sure is a lot! :)  All those screenshots and videos are certainly making it look good!

A LOT has changed in the past year. It's going to appear as a whole different experience when you jump back in.

Has interdiction's ever slowed down?

This was so appropriate after EH update.

I decided to load EH up and see what if any changes have been made. I like the new 7m 5000 cargo missions. My 3 year x52 profile no longer even remotely worked. I was turning of shields, could not move left or right in the UI. I was a sitting duck after leaving the station. Hour later did a new profile and was back in business. I started a longtime ago due to being bored of loading screens gutted my anaconda so I could get 38.10ly jumps. It makes interdiction very dangerous as shields last about 30 seconds if I'm just slightly slow on jumping to a new point it could be expensive. With the new missions being close I will have to find a bunch of 8a upgrades.

Here screens:
Profile not working, impossible to navigate, turning on silent running, opening cargo etc.
I was thinking if I get interdicted and have to payout 8mill in insurance I'm pulling the rj45.

Yeah, it's improved greatly. I played it about a week ago.

Good to hear!  Will definitely have to make time this weekend to reinstall it and give it a whirl! :)

Its definelty has some improvements as I no longer enjoy very long missions. But the interdiction is still immersion breaking with the glad I found you, even when I have no cargo and they bug me jump after jump. I thinking of running tracking software and see if I can update how interdiction's work.

Going to to use a new term I learned concerning how I feel about interdiction.

Look at what Bob kept saying to me on a run for better shields.

What mode are you in?  Open, Group, or Solo?
