I'm in the UK. I missed out several months worth of play, due to packing it away once I ordered a Rift and the Rift actually arriving (nearly 5 months), so I'm not completely au faix with the updates.

I'd be game, but I'm GMT -5hrs and my schedule is kinda weird these days. Plus I'm based out on the edge of human inhabited space. I tend not to go into the bubble too much - main occupations right now are long distance cargo, mining, and some occasional merc work.

Is there anything added on lately that benefits from "playing together"?

I'll gladly rob you if you'd like to set up a time for a "rendezvous." smile

I haven't collected taxes in months...

@Ice - Main group benefits still come from group mining. With right set-ups, each player adds 100% percent speed and profit margin to the expedition. Plus safety aspects.

Group trading pays zilch, and I haven't really tried group missions too much so jury's out on that.

@Flash - in game name is Rook, pm me and maybe we can set up some times.

@MR_B - my heavily modded war Federal Assault Ship or war Python (not the blockade runner) I have docked at my base will happily "negotiate" my special tax rate. smile

Hahaha!! Yeah, I'd happily negotiate prices with you as well... might even tax YOU for your work! biggrin

Trading used to give a %age of my profits to my wing members, that doesn't happen now?

Yes, it does. In a recent community goal I was dumping millions worth of rares for a CMDR in a Cutter outside a station, they delivered it (I stayed behind), and as a Wingmate I got a 5% cut of profit IIRC.

Exactly! 5% = zilch! Poor incentive in my mind, heh.

:P

I gave up on modding a month and a half ago when I spent two entire days hunting for rocks and got hardly anything useful. I only get one day a week to game and it felt like a waste.

Did they finally fix that?

For you, maybe. For a new guy, an old trader's 5% may be more than the new guy makes all week bounty hunting! biggrin

Not really - getting all the materials and components for the mods is still a huge grind and I would estimate currently beyond the means of most casual players (except maybe lvl 1/ lvl 2 mods). You can still spend two days hunting for something and still have nothing to show for it. By times it seems like Elite takes joy in trolling you in this regard. duh

I don't have any Grade 5 mods. And I don't feel that I am in need of them. Even some of my Level 1 to 3 mods are really meaningful. And the materials for them seem to rain from the sky.

Ah, k, so no point in me bothering then. Sad it makes me. I want to play, but I don't want to fart around doing repetitive stuff--that feels like a job.

I'm sorry, this completely slipped my mind after I had to switch back to my older HOTAS and was stumped for configs on everything I'd been flying.

I haven't touched EliteD since - nor my flight sims. I've been trying to use voice control, but it hasn't gone too well so far. I've been training up my O/S and hoping it will recognise my commands a bit better soon.

Used to have no problems with voice commands - I reckon it's the cursed Windows 10 factor again!

A couple west coasters in the US play fairly regularly, but obviously the pacific time zone is a factor!\

As for Mr. B, I can totally relate your feelings of repetition and grindy gameplay. I still enjoy the game with friends but its hard to dig into the deeper features of the game when paired with time to play.


I've got a bad feeling about this.....

I really need to get back on. We moved this summer and I only just set up my office and PC. Hopefully you guys are still killing it out there.

I'll try to make time again tomorrow. I will have to relearn all of my HOTAS mapping!
