It says something that though I play now and again I have not gone near an engineer nor have I even looked at how you see a Thargoid.

Engineering as I started reading about how to do it and got completely lost, and I never have bothered to go past that first impression as I dont see why its worth the dice roll I;ve heard you get a dice roll at the end. Fuck stupid casino grinding.

And Thargoids as I dont need more reasons to be reminded how much I suck.

Sometimes irony is pretty ironic.

They changed engineering. It's definitely still a materials grind, but it's not as much of a dice roll now. You want to min/max, you can, just by grinding to unlock the engineers and grinding to obtain the materials. Luck factor was mostly taken out of it. Not that I think it's fun.

I'm going to go further ;  Engineering is fun and relatively easy to get the mats these days.

What ISN'T is the grind to unlock the engineers.  That's still all kinds of bullshit.

I just re-installed this for some VR fun.  I also reset everything, because I don't remember what the fuck I am doing with anything.  It says a lot that I have played this game for 50 hours in virtual reality, and have only barely scratched the surface.  I have literally no idea what any of you are talking about.  I will be spending the next 10 hours of play time getting my controls figured out (extra important when you cannot actually see your keyboard IRL) and figuring out how to make the HUD green instead of that ghastly orange.

If any VR owning readers out there have not tried E:D, you are missing out.  Just tooling around star systems is something else.

Elite: Dangerous is 76% off at Steam right now.

Cheapest it has ever been, if you've ever thought about buying it. Get the the Commander Deluxe Edition for the game as it is meant to be played.

If I already have the vanilla base game, is it the Horizons pack alone that gives all the extra content?

Yes. They called Horizons a season pass, but it turned into a massive ongoing expansion. It's all-in-one. The only other things you can spend $ on are ship paint jobs, ship kits, flight suits, bobbleheads, etc. But those are from the Frontier Store, not Steam.

The new exploration changes are pretty decent.  This has been my "chill at work between appointments while watching Netflix" go to game.

I was finding that everything was prettier, faster and more responsive last night. 

I was tired, so I didn't get the chance to do a lot of scanning or mining, but that's the duty for tonight...
