    Elite Dangerous is a space sim about living in a futuristic Milky Way galaxy completely to scale. Now that's cosmic horror. The review also touches on Horizons and Beyond.

THE LIST - https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1_K3ziSxT9zcUUGCddS4sF1uNJTWHSbOwB1CQX2Rx4Uo It's going to be weird making videos without Elite Dangerous in the back of my brain like it's been for these years.

Do you think that you’ll do an update to the video after the new expansion comes out this year 2021. I forget the name but the one with first person shooting.

Even though I've put around 300 hours into this game, I just can't help but be disappointed every time I get back into it. It's just filled with so many missed opurtunities. The Thargoids, the lore, the trading, the exploration, it just all feels so repetitive and random. The universe feels empty, trying to keep me entertained with small little side missions which makes me go "meh, not interested" every single time because I know the reward will be minimal. The time it takes to get one simple thing done is just too cumbersome after doing it for the umpteenth time. I just wish they put more time into making the game fun. For me, that's ultimately what it's missing. Fun.

Playing it again now, I actually think that the main thing this game misses is not being able to start groups/guilds and meaningfully do stuff together. Would be epic if you could have a small sized spaceport or a home in any way to hang out with a guild, have at least some impact on one star system beyond fighting. I hate how all this has to be managed and solved by third party tools and programs.

I just don't get this game. It seems cool and I have friends that want to play it but what can you really do in the game besides mine space rocks and dog fight? I guess you can lug cargo around mindlessly. You can explore the galaxy but all you're going to find is empty rocks.

you know, i dont really get the "ITS A 1 TO 1 SCALE OF THE OUR GALAXY" to me that feels like a bad point and not a good one. Size does automatically mean quality and from the major point i have seen against this game being "there isnt really much in content" all that space is practically worthless with fuck all to do.

Man I wanted to like this game but the navigation system is so irritating and frustrating. Too close to a planet to engage FTL? Oh sorry, spend 10-15 minutes flying far away enough at sub-light speeds before you can use FTL drive. Oh you successfully engaged your FTL drive? Well good luck because we're not going to tell you when you're supposed to disengage to arrive at your destination...oh sorry you overshot by like 10 parsecs...oh and you're too close to a planet now so you'll have to fly another 10 minutes before you can re-engage FTL. God who the FUCK designed this system?

At the very least they could give you the option to decide how you'd split the haul (or the credits) before heading out on the "mission" or "mining operation" or whatever. You'd accept the quest - I mean, request for materials (whatever, I'm spit balling - you get it) - and then you have the option of negotiating the cut. 50-50? Hmm, does that seem fair? Maybe it won't after you see just how little they ended up contributing - maybe next time the split gets negotiated a bit differently, for parity? Lawl. Or you could always just split it 50-50, if you don't wanna bring your real-life friendship interactions into this fun game you're trying to enjoy together. I dunno. I think it'd be a simple way to incorporate the "give friend money" option while adding to the verisimilitude of the experience. (Fuck, I love that word. *And* I know how to spell it, so I get to use it without looking like an asshole. THOSE ARE THE RULES.)

the "no give money to friend" button is probably the single biggest barrier to entry for my friends. They do not want to have to sink hundreds of hours into being an NPC in the game. Player base structures need to happen next year. I think that would add a major element of interaction along with the "give money to friend" button but it could be a small loan of a million dollars.

@Ameya Vaidya That's actually not a bad idea, making ships ranked based sounds really good

Måned siden
Ameya Vaidya
Ameya Vaidya

@Shaw358 I agree with the notion that giving a new player an Anaconda is a dumb idea. If they want to gate that, they can tie medium and large ships to Exploration, Combat and Trade rankings. This way, at best, the individual can get a slightly better starter small ship but they still have to put in the hours to get the rankings up high enough to buy the bigger ships. To me, that makes logical sense. Gating the ships to those rankings also allows Frontier to think about having more specialised ships in the game and having ships which can be specialised in 2 out of 3 areas for example.

Måned siden
Shaw358
Shaw358

The reason that's not a thing is because veterans with 100+ billion can just ruin the experience for new players. Instantly buying an anaconda is the worst experience you could have...

I feel like Elite is similar to X3 Albion Prelude, but less simulator and more ace pilot. The focus is on your ship, so much of the progression is tied to that. Which is a shame because I would have bought the game if I could use the raw materials to build a giant fuck-off space foundry, with hired labor exploiting resources from the locals until i own 15 carriers like in X3 and become a true feudal lord. Instead, you're just grinding for the next ship upgrade.

You forgot the very worst part. They went cheap with the servers and only use one background sim server for the game. The multiplayer part of the game is all peer ro peer networking. Nope the fleet carriers were a fail as well!

Leaving one Anaconda in between the systems, have no fuel to jump, can't even call any friend to help...say, can I interest you some Xeno purging action? PS: VR for Elite is definitely worth it, together with voice control/HOTAS really bring this game to life, a sense of scale you can never experienced on flat screen

There's no sound at all in space, gorgeous, biblical genius of YouTube MAGAELITE. Whatever MAGA explosion occurs, the only things you might ear if u have air in your spaceship are impacts from ejected materials on your ship skin. But there a lot of chances your not too much stupid to put urself near any explosion : so better forget it.
