After all this time I finally picked up the X Superbox in the Steam summer sale this weekend. I got it downloaded just spent 4hrs so far playing the Humble Merchant and watching Intro videos... very beautiful and addicting.
I feel the same sense of wonder and possibilities that I felt the first time I played Elite.
Looking forward to trying some of these mods, hopefully they work with the Steam version which added some steam achievements.
