Well that shed some light, thanks for the linky.


You do realise that is a fan made video? it wasn't made by FD at all, it says so in the comments section.

Still a good video.

Is ED worth buying for... Xbox...

I am still a proud member of the PC Master Race. I may have to do some traveling for quite awhile and I'm not sure about getting yet another, much more powerful, laptop just to run high-end games while I'm away. I also won't be able to lug around my PC.

Yeah that's why I posted it. At the time I also didn't know that FD had linked it in the news letter that they send out.

They've returned....


and they can be killed...

I'm waiting for the "they're too easy to kill" thread to appear on the ED forum closely followed by "they're too hard to kill" thread.

I've not had an encounter since the hyperdiction event many months ago.

What I did though was engage with the Thargoid material missions (whilst they lasted) and that was very entertaining merging high risk missions with high value rewards. If you missed that I think its gone now but gameplay wise it was so good.

Hi folks Smile

I'm debating whether to buy 'Horizons' (now), or should I wait till next year.
The game has had a few updates, and I seem to enjoy it a bit more than I did, so in short, is it worth the extra £19 etc. in it's present state?

Any advice/opinions gratefully appreciated! Smile

It worth it just to "loon" (technical term Wink) about on a planet's surface in an SRV! It increases you options with the materials and the Engineers - it makes exploring easier. I upgraded both my accounts to Horizons as there is much more to see ( Crashed ships, ruins, thargoid structures, barnacles, brain trees, geysers etc) on planet surfaces.

Currently out at Phua Eurl HB-F d11-2 trying to do a circumnavigation of the galaxy. It's going quite slowly as had to cut my game hours and often take a break from Jump / honking by having a quick "loon" about on a planet!

Ditto what's been written by Redvers. It's nothing that makes it a totally new and different game but it adds a lot to it, the engineers (and all the stuff that needs to be done to get to them) open a whole new level of customization for ships (even if the randomness of it still stinks a bit), the possibility to land and drive across planets opens a whole new level to exploration, if that's your thing of course.

Something I want to add, the SRV is an overly fun toy to drive around on planetary surfaces, especially low g ones, the physics engine really makes a good work in that game.

Also, races are a thing of course. Cool

o7 fellow explorer! A circumnavigation of the galaxy requires a lot of determination, take care out in the black.
I'm currently busy on a circumnavigation of Enceladus. By rover, of course. Very Happy
A tad less than 1600 km of jumps, tumbles and regrets on bad decisions. And I'm also keeping some kind of journal of my delirious ramblings.
(shameless cross-forum self promotion)

Much like X, I find this is a game where the goals you set for yourself make the most of the gameplay. Even if Elite requires a bit too much imagination for it to work at times. Rolling Eyes

The Thargoids are now attacking stations.

Hi all Smile

Well, I finally bought 'Horizons', spent some credits on three new ships, a Beluga Liner, a Dolphin and a Type Ten Defender.
I also bought some cosmetic paint jobs for the Orca, Dolphin and Beluga, plus some passenger nameplates.
I've now got my fleet of passenger ships which all come under the title of the " Wild Deer Travel Corp." and "Wild Deer Trading" for my trading ships,
(Python, Anaconda and Cobra mk. 3.).
The Passenger ships are all painted in 'Vibrant Red'. Rolling on the floor laughing
So if you see any passenger ships in open play with that colour and logo it will be me most likely. Smile
I have some SRV's in some of them which I'm just trying to get the hang of driving... Rolling Eyes ...so much to learn there and I nearly got stuck on a planet, as the SRV wouldn't go under the ship to dock. I had to send the ship away and recall it, it worked okay then.... Rant ... Very Happy

There is a trick if you do get stuck in an SRV for any reason (down a crevasse or stuck on something (ancient ruin or something) ) . Log out of Horizons and log in in plain ED - you'll be placed in orbit with SRV intact.

I'll look out for you but I'll not often in open. (Fleetcom).

Hi, Smile Thanks for the advice.

I'm trying to upgrade my status with the Imperials at the moment. I'm designated 'Lord', but to get any higher is taking a very long time.

I'm currently in the Vequess, Miphifa and Happis systems doing transport runs, and also trying to get the permit for the Facece system.
So any advice from you Frontier Horizons/Dangerous players would be really helpful! Embarassed ... Smile

Just had some pocket money to spare eh! Very Happy

Oh, with the SRV there's SO MUCH to learn indeed...you wouldn't expect that kind of fun for physics on wheels from a game mainly about zipping around in spaceships...there's not a great deal of planetside content generally, but the act of driving is just enough fun in itself. I currently have almost 9000 km on my odometer, the last 1800 gained with a full circumnavigation of the moon Enceladus:

I won't put it here, but in the video description you'll find a link to the "travelogue" thread in the forums, nonsensical babblings aside it may give a small preview to someone new with Horizons of the kind of content it may offers on planetary surfaces. Keeping in mind that Enceladus has probably one of the dullest landscapes ever, there are many true planetary gems scattered around the universe.
