[PC - SpaceSim] Elite: Dangerous

Postby The-Monk on Fri Dec 14, 2012 4:42 pm

Now Elite dangerous is officially released I will use this top post to list fellow UKCS members commander names so we can all easily add each other and maybe fly alongside each other in a Wing etc.

*** List of UKCS Commander names ***

Monk |UKCS|
Kae
ListerofSMEG
EvolvedMonkey
Sweetamber92
Neuro |UKCS|
Binerexis

Please PM me with your commander name if you want to be added to the list.

*** Original Post ***
I'm really excited regarding this kickstarter project for a brand new Elite game. Having played the original Elite and Frontier its great news that David Braben wants to revisit the franchise.

Just watched the new Development Plan video and some of the things he wants to add sound amazing. Being able to walk around your ship and potentially sneak onto other ships and steal them sounds truly awesome. Also being able to walk around the space stations will be pretty neat.

Landing on planets also confirmed.

Anyway below is the Dev video and the link to the kickstarter.

Latest news letter has been released. Gives a really nice insight into the direction they are going with the space stations. Also the Federal Cruiser looks awesome at the bottom of the news letter.

HNNNNNNNG cannot contain my wants
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

Premium Beta was released on Friday 30th May so have been playing that. For an early Beta I'm totally blown away and the game is shaping up to be amazingly good.

The basis of the game is there and yes there are bugs but that is what Beta testing is for.

Really excited about the game.

I was actually tempted to live on beans on toast for 2 months to get the premium beta lol. I'll call it now, GOTY.

On the plus side if you do buy into Premium Beta you get the expansions free so you do get something out of it.

Plus if you brought into the Beta only you can just pay the difference.

I will take some screen shots tonight and post them up.

Can't waaaaait. Threw the rest of the money in. The way I see it I was already standard beta and I was going to buy the expansion pass on launch anyway, so the £15 to play NOW? After a few hours I can safely say ENTIRELY WORTH IT.

Upside, Shuri? Standard beta looks like it's fast approaching! Premium no longer sold as of...Some point in earlyish July. I forget when.
