Elite Dangerous

    HOKAY.

    Most of you who actively MU* with me right now (mostly BSG:U folks as I'm pretty lurk-y over on FW) know I am basically obsessed with Elite these days.

    Is anyone else currently playing? If so, would you be interested in adding me on Discord? Maybe creating a channel we can all hang out in, share handy info (like some massive credit-making missions I've found lately?), winging up sometimes to pew-pew?

    I... used to play? I reinstalled and toyed with it a bit, but I'm still not sure where I actually would want to start in order to get into more exploration.

    So I'm working towards exploration (hence missions to make massive credits) so I can build this Asp Explorer.

    Ultimately I wanna build this one, but it costs twice as much.

    I was shown a mission that, upon completion, is like 200 million credits (which would be moooooore than enough for the 2nd ship), but takes about 16 hours?! And is also complicated af. I might try it next week. I'm apprehensive. It requires a spreadsheet.

    (I mean obvs I can do exploration with less, but those are like, optimal builds. They'll let me just cruise outside the bubble and explore to my heart's content.)



  • Elite Dangerous is on my list of shit to try once my car is paid off and I can start saving for a hardcore computer. Right now I have a rinky-dink Kmart laptop.

    It's worth it. I've been enjoying the hell out of it.

    I was lucky enough to have a stint of about 8 months where I had a more flush income a few years ago and I needed a halfway decent gaming machine for work, so it was also a tax write-off. I've just had to upgrade a couple pieces here and there since.

    I'd still love a gaming mouse, keyboard, and HOTAS, but for ED I'm getting away just fine with a XBOne controller.



  • Is Elite Dangerous the one that's taking forever to make with people putting down thousands for huge high spec ships or is that another game?

    I can't really remember.

    That's Star Citizen. Elite Dangerous has been out for a few years and is a complete game. Once you buy it, you're golden. The only money after is for cosmetics, like nameplates for your ship, colored weapon beams or engine trails, flight suits, etc.
