Re: Elite : Reclamation (Novel)

Easier on this site? Forgot about me, eh? Nah, as I said elsewhere, you were correct in many things. Playing FFE required you to know a few things that made it more immersive and better to play, such as: - do not use autopilot to approach planets, that will make it easier for pirates to match speeds...

Re: Three super-Earths in one goldilocks zone?

If only we had Cobra Mk III's to explore that star system and all the others as well... The universe truly holds many wonders to be discovered...

Re: David Braben's Elite: Dangerous

which accurises the cargo capacity. Accurises! Accurises? I'm pulling my pledge, sir! Cheers, Drew. My guess is that it is the name of a 10th level spell from the Elite RPG: Accurisation (10th level, 20 spell points, lasts until broken): By casting this spell the caster is able to fit 5%/level more...

Surely, if you were to design a cannon, it would look like a cannon? Perchance you meant to say 'canon'? :P

Re: Marcan Rayger Frontier/Elite fan-fics revisited

The third part is now also available on Goodreads, but only in .ePub format. I'm looking into getting it there also in .mobi format for any Kindle users out there...

Also, I'd appreciate reviews etc. posted on Goodreads! :)

Re: Marcan Rayger Frontier/Elite fan-fics revisited

One wonders how Marcan Rayger would pronounce Diso? And since this was asked... I recorded a sound clip of how Marcan Rayger pronounces some of the planet/system names in the Elite universe. See if you can recognise them from this sound bite! http://youtu.be/P3Gpy1STPiU EDIT: uploaded to Youtube in...

Re: Elite: Dangerous - Design Decision Forum

Issues Will exploration remain interesting and profitable long term? What other things can players discover in a system that have value to sell? Overall, I think the exploration is one facet of the game that is in need of the upcoming "land on planets" and "walk around" add-ons. Once you can land o...

Thanks for taking the time to sort these out, Wolfwood.

Re: Marcan Rayger Frontier/Elite fan-fics revisited

The third part of the series is now downloadable at the main site (link in sig). I'll get it up on Goodreads as well as soon as possible. For anyone who read the earlier version over the past 10-15 years, some of the story elements have been changed quite a lot (and even removed) while others have b...

There's also an option to purchase the book on the site these days - in case you missed the Kickstarter. ;)

Actually, the docking animation is very similar to the planetary landings in the Frontier games when you landed on a planet with no atmosphere and was thus taken into an underground bay.

Re: Elite: Dangerous - Design Decision Forum

I thought that was the case... Players can save private group settings including players to invite to allow quick selection and set up of groups It might be worth asking for some clarification on it, actually. Yes, but that would still require them to reset the group every now and then. Only the gr...

Re: Marcan Rayger Frontier/Elite fan-fics revisited

I started going through the third story this weekend. It requires a bit more work than the two first ones to make it presentable (it was always the weakest of them all), but I should be able to get it out within a week (or two at the most).
