Elite: Dangerous is 75% off at the moment, if you've ever wanted to try the game, or want an alt account to play in the Bubble while your main is in deep space (or be your co-pilot for an extra pip).

sold! and thanks for the heads up. I look forward to buying that other space game for this price too a few months after it releases. In 2025   why so serious?

Yes, I know I'm paranoid, but am I paranoid enough?

Just got my HOTAS off Amazon, so will be diving in.  Going to play normally for a bit, then swap to VR once I have the controls committed to memory.

"Beyond - Chapter One" (3.0 or the next phase of Elite Dangerous after Horizons) launches February 27. Watch trailer.

Promises: improvements to core gameplay, new crime and punishment system, improved trading data/map, wing missions, new ships (Chieftain player ship and new Thargoid scouts, but Krait is still to come), more interactive megaships and installations, materials broker, technology broker, overhaul of engineering, in-game Galnet audio, new astronomical anomalies, improvements to planetary visuals and more detailed surface environments.

I like that you can pick your quest reward from three different options now.

Two great videos:

- Hilarious review of Elite Dangerous in VR.

- Exploring "The World of Death" (which has a fast orbit through the jet of a white dwarf)

See you chaps that are Trader Elite ?  How the fuck did you do it and how the fuck did you not blow your fucking brains out with the boredom ?

Seriously.


Edit ;  turns out it's changed and making money on Passenger missions also helps your trading rank.  Hit Tycoon last night after running the Parutis/Medb billions.

So that's nice.

Awesome.

I headed out there a couple of months ago, but took many diversions to sights along the way, and by the time I'd done the Heart and Soul nebulae, patch 3.0 was introduced. It sucked to be far away from all the new action and it was gonna be a long time before I returned to the bubble.

I was taking screenshots at Base Camp station in the Soul Nebula, and somehow I aggroed the station :) It blew me up and instead of respawning me there, I was was offered LHS 3447 insured, or LHS 3447 Sidewinder. Apparently this was a bug in 3.0, but I thought it was because Base Camp had no shipyard.

I'd already sold my exploration data out there, so I took my insured LHS 3447 respawn taxi to the bubble, bought a T9 with its new extra 256-ton cargo slot, and started trading (only to realise what Ironwood posted above, that I should be doing passenger missions). Maybe one day I'll go back towards the Rift!

I'm new in ED (no DLC). Is it worth buying Ground DLC right of the bat or it doesn't add any meaningful experience?

Do you mean Horizons? (40% off at the moment!)

If you find you enjoy the game, you should buy Horizons. It's a really big part of the game.

The most important thing it adds is Engineers. They are NPCs who can upgrade the modules in your ship. So for example with the base game, you could build an exploration ship that jumps 35 light years, but Engineers could bring it up to 54 light years per jump. The other big aspect of Horizons is being able to participate in the story-driven content, such as interacting with alien ruins on planets.

But if you have just started, there is no immediate need to buy Horizons. The learning curve to playing the basic game is going to consume a lot of time before you even need to think about landing anywhere other than a space station.

I wouldn't advise anyone NOT to buy Horizons.  The best way to think of it is this :  the base game will give you Elite.  You know, the 1980's game.  That's great, of course, but can you remember playing it ?  Fairly limited, right ?

Get Horizons.  Or don't bother with the game.


Also, the more I think on the Passenger missions thing, the more it bothers me.  It's a high credit activity that will get you both high levels of Exploration AND trading ?  Why do anything else ever ?

Does anyone have any experience of Combat missions ?  I've been doing the CC combat missions that has slowly crept my combat rank up and I'd quite like it to go up faster ;  do the missions help or should I just be grinding a haz-res ?

Horizons is needed to access the Engineers which, while a bit of a grind, are very useful in improving aspects of your ship (notably jump range and thrust speed).

Other than surface stations there are both static and dynamic 'points of interest' but the interaction is, at most, typically scanning some datapoints for which someone will pay as well as surface 'mining' (shoot rock-collect rubble) which are mostly just for engineering

Awesome.

Maybe one day I'll go back towards the Rift!

I made it to the Zurara megaship a couple of days ago..... and then promptly boosted into it several times while taking screenshots (this was done on xbox which uses the boost button in a combo to access the camera suite) so I'm currently headed back to Heart Nebula (did Soul on the way out) for repairs - not sure if I'll go back to Zurara and head further or return to the bubble afterwards (unlocked Palin on the way out).





On the way out I did visit the surface bases
