Yeah, I think I have a 46 LY jump ship. Will have to check. Haven't played in awhile though.
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.

It's a long slog that happens to scratch tat collector itch I have in games. And bumping around with our ships in weird rock terrains being completely non-serious about it is fun.
Biggest achievement so far: server crash when a couple of thousand players all jumped at the same time  :grin:
It was fixed in about an hour afterwards.

Hate it when that happens :emot-lol:

Poor Obsidian Ant got disconnected on his first jump.

Old news, but interesting development. Video file was leaked within the 3.3 beta then quickly removed. It showed a clip of possible gameplay in the future that Frontier are probably working on quietly.

It further shows that Frontier will beat anything CIG-SC ever comes out with if they ever do for the grail of massive scope combined with fidelity in space gaming. SC will be long obsolete even then. (lol)
Highly implies,imo, a spacelegs implementation, managed with no technical debt or ponzi'ing.

Post the announcement (Important Community Update (01/03)) by FD Friday about the future of ED with the next major DLC slated 2020. It had some backlash by mostly trolls and ignorant gamers on the ED forums. What was particularly pathetic were some threads started by shillizens who kept trying to shamelessly plug the supposed superiority and "progress state" of SC like the past six years of siphoning 200 mil never happened. Even tried to mention OCS(that bs again!) and better flight modeling than ED being developed. Hilarious and low at the same time.

Yeah, we just lol at those guys now. Meanwhile ED is continuing to move on as a working game.

Not even slightly. Dwarf fortress is an order of magnitude “harder”. There are some platform games that are designed to be “hard” and require perfect timing and great skill.

E:D, in general is a space trading simulator with a reasonable tutorial. Where is gets difficult is learning where all the controls are and knowing when to use them. This can be helped with the use of a flight control stick and throttle and is a natural fit for VR.

FDEV's decision to release the next "Era" of Elite in mid 2020 has to be in preparation for the next gen consoles. If Space legs and Atmo planets were added the current gen consoles just wouldn't be able to render it.

Also this could be an uppercut to the release of SQ42.

Not true. Current gen consoles are powerful enough. They're basically fine-tuned mid-range PCs
