    Yeah, I saw the no wipe thing last night too. I was kind of looking forward to another wipe honestly. I mean, every wipe has been an opportunity to start fresh, in a new area and to try different things. Of course we have the option to replicate that by simply wiping our own save and starting again I suppose.

    In practical terms a lot of players have been going a bit crazy thinking that a wipe was coming and some huge fines/bounties have been accrued by players. I wonder if that is going to be 'refreshed' as the living galaxy faction political stuff becomes activated. Actually, I just wonder how much it is going to affect faction standings. I am friendly with a couple of factions through mission work, and unfriendly with a couple of pirate mobs through bounty hunting. Is that going to be reset?

    Also, some of the systems I have been inhabiting have many factions in them and appear to have the groundwork laid out for some conflict as independant and federation space is quite blurred in my area. Hopefully there is going to be a bit of local conflict that requires a bit of forethought as to which side is assisted, or if any side is allied with etc.

    Either way, not long to wait now. What I do know is that my Cobra is a damn nice ship and I am glad to be keeping her.

    Right. Yesterday, and again today, a big update to gamma 2.0 plus a little hotfix.

    Faction stuff fixed up a bit and a couple of new ships. The changelog is huge.

    To get it going a new launcher is needed, available from the old launcher screen or from the website. I have it running no dramas, well so far anyway.

    The biggest improvement I have seen so far is a route planner in the galaxy map. It makes navigation so much easier.

    Thee are also a bunch of new mission types. Like salvage missions, go find a thing ina system and bring it back. All connected to rebellions or conflict of some sort in my systems. I have not done any of them yet, but they look like some very nice early game money makers if you can avoid the cops.

    Also, the expolit of finding a nice asteroid to mine, then logging out/in to reset it is gone. I never used that exploit myself, prefering the fossicking gameplay, but it's gone now so no need to even think about it when you see a rock suddenly giving 50% or more platinum.

    An unfortunate new thing is wear and tear on your ship now costs to repair, I suppose that is fair enough, restoring a ship to factory new conditions for free was a little unbalanced, but some of the costs have been pretty high. That being said, I think they are looking at how long it takes to start accruing W and T, for the balance.

    There is a heap more stuff: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=71785

    Not long until full release now...There will probably be a few more hotfixes between now and tuesday I imagine.

    Any mission along the lines of "we need data on solar system X". I would be great to either have to get there and back in an allotted time frame or get there and back before somebody else does (i.e. hoever else also excepts the job from the space station bulletin board)

    There is another little hotfix for the game.

    Logged on after the update and after the changes to Gamma 2.0 you can see your influence with the systems faction, which is pretty cool. It also tells you about the sort of state the faction is in. As for an example. "Jet Dynamic Industry" the controlling faction for the station in Njikan, Smeaton Port, is expanding and has an expanding tag. It also states "Civil War Critical" so there might be a war happening, maybe.

    Yeah, in the Njikan newsfeed there was several stories concerning the expansion of Jet Industries. I have managed to become friendly wiith that faction, so, if a civil war erupts, I am hoping for some combat missions from them. Possibly a conflict zone at some point. Could be an opportunity to increase standing with the Federation I suppose.

    I actually had to leave the system last time I played due to a bounty I recieved from cops flying in front of my guns at an extraction point conflict. I went to the system next door, Karovices, and found a black market at one of the outposts which was nice. Still Federation space and less security which should make playing a bit more fast and loose with legality a bit easier. No resources as such. The system does have two outposts though.

    Edit: And now this just came to my attention. https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=73386

    More hotfixing.

    Well after doing some bounty hunting. I think I turned one of the extraction points into a battlefield between the Feds and the Njikan Crew (Pirate faction). At first it was just 2 cobras and 3 miners but after some killing of wanted people, things escalated very quickly. A few minutes later I see 2 Anacondas on field, one for the Feds the other for the Njikan Crew, multiple eagles, vipers and cobras all battling out. The Anaconda for the Njikan were shooting down it's own faction because they had bounties and so did the Feds. Next thing you know there were 2 Anacondas facing each other. Scanned the Njikan Anaconda and saw it has 400CR bounty. looks like he's dead.

    In all the mess and killstealing of the Feds I managed to scrape up at least 300k CR before heading back for repairs. Only a few scratches nothing much.

    I decided to come back later and when I did, it was all fair and easy but one encounter turned bad. When I was trying to take down a Cobra, a fed ship behind me fired an dumbfire missile to hit the Cobra, but it ended up hitting me and doing most of my health in. After a while I had to run away and when I did, my canopy shattered and life support was activated, only 5 mins of air, oh dear. Realizing my situation I turned away and boosted away as fast as I can, managed to get out but only oxygen is the problem. If I was at Planet 4, I would've died due to the trip being 1000 LS? away I was at Planet 3 instead because it was closer and had pretty much the same thing. so I didn't die.




    After all that been finished up I am upgrading my Viper bit by bit so it's fully upgraded before I take it into combat.

    Arc discovered a Rebellion uprising out in Empire space tonight, just after the game went full release.

    After jumping into the fight we were met with this site. Imperial Capital ship Elizabeth.

    We promptly joined the fight on the Empires side and pretty quickly destroyed all the rebel ships.

    Oh my. How perfectly pretty.

    I just upgraded to vers. 1.0.0.0 had a look in station, still got my stuff. I will play again tomorrow.

    I would very much like to work out how to create a group to see how that plays.

    So many more missions now. I did one completely in station. Fed rank mission, donating non-lethal weapons I bought in the market there. Easy, but tiny, rank upgrade. First step on my way to the dropship I suppose.

    Oh, there are skulls and a merc paintjob in the Livery section of outfitting if no one has checked. I painted my Cobra, looks nice.

    Should check out more tomorrow. Hey Kakkers, is where you are the slave revolt from Galnet?

    Can't recall what the system name was exactly but it wasn't the one you mentioned. The war was over a rebel uprising that was being squelched by the Empire.

    edit: Oh Galnet is the news service. Yes the system is Sorbago, the one mentioned on Galnet.

    I play with K/B perfectly fine.

    Don't think it's as black and white as that scout. Although most of the Feds systems are a democracy and most of the Empires a dictatorship so take from that what you will.

    Thread revive
    This is supposed to release Q2 this year april-june on PS4

    I still have elite frontier on my AMIGA cd32 console (pre-ps1). I was a little young to grasp the complexity of the game then but we discovered a glitch to get a ton of money,buy a top tier fighter and dog fight with the police

    I will probably check this out when ps4 releases

    When this was announced around the same time as Star Citizen, I was convinced it would suck in comparison (especially given David Braben's recent output), but to their credit they shipped a game that many people seem to love. I'm not desperate to play it right away, but I suspect I'll pick it up down the track. It'll be interesting to see if Battlefront 2 is able to scratch the space battle itch though (admittedly only a small part of an Elite/Frontier game).

    Good to see a few pick this up. It's got a steep learning curve so those that know very little about it please look into it before buying. That being said that's why we have party chats.

    My only word of advise is.. get yourself a docking computer... the countless times i bounced around inside the stations trying to manually dock only to end up destroyed you couldnt count.. but once thats installed.. happy days..

    Edit: and believe me.. its frustrating if and when you cock it up.

    Docking is even worse with the Type-9 freighter, even with the computer it will potentially fuck up.

    Although it is fun smuggling items going through the dock at 3-400 m/s
