Im really enjoying this now. Sure theres a long way to go, its still crashing ( but a lot more stable than it was ). FPS is still an issue... but boy does it immerse me.

Today I flew out in my Hornet, went across to an abandoned station looking for clues about some womans husband thats disappeared ( one of the first missions which have recently been added )...

I approach the station, the landing pads damaged, so I open my canopy and float out. EVA into the station and have a look round. Just standing there looking at the scale of the station is truly immpressive. It gives a sense of scale other games Ive played have not even come close to!

Theres no gravity so I just continue to EVA inside and draw my pistol as I start floating down some dimly lit corridors. ( Check those corners... Check those corners )

Some other player flies in, destroys my ship ( how very rude! ) and then trys to hit me with his ships guns while I hover around the entrance, his ships lights slowly creep across the entrance, as I duck for cover.

He eventually bugs out, ( obviuosly bored but too chciken to try and flush me out, lol ). I put out on local coms if anyone could pick me up. Some guy calls out that hes in a Freelancer and is on his way. Next thing he drops into orbit and I EVA out to his ship. He's already dropped the back airlock and I float inside. We then head off into the wild blue ( black ) yonder!

And this is Alpha, not bad...not bad at all.

Played a little of the 2.1 release this morning. I had one crash during the few hours I was on and the framerate has improved a little. Seemed like the longer I stayed on the server, the lower the framerate got. Had few new things happen like spawning my M50 would spawn it in motion out in space and I couldn't catch it.

Still having fun with it

You either log into "Universe", from there you either select Arccorp ( small city type thiningebob wink ) or Port Olisar. Thats the one you want to go for. ( You can also get the same choice through your hanger by going out the large blast doors and into the lift. )

From there you wake up in your bed, jump out and go to the ship selection room, hit a terminal and get to choose your ride!

From there the worlds your oyster... or rather your world is the small system that they have released so far!

I'm enjoying the ICC probe missions... The area that it's sent me too so far with the huge asteroids is pretty cool.
