I was 24000Ly from home when last exploration CG was on. I hotfooted it back in double quick time to cash in my data. thing is I reckon I would have made more just making my way back normally I only got an extra 10 million for the CG where as I made almost 40 million on the way out so could have made a good bit more on the way back.

It's a year-long season of iterations and build-ups.

It adds significant gameplay just from what's in the beta, and as always, the Elite beta is only what requires testing. It isn't anywhere near what will be in the finished patch, let alone what'll be released by the time the Horizon season is over.

Handy tip from reddit if you launch through steam, lets you play horizons without having a separate install.

    Go to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\Steamapps\Elite Dangerous..." (or where your game is installed)
    Create a shortcut of "EDLauncher.exe" and place it somewhere convenient.
    Rename it: "Elite Dangerous Horizons".
    In Steam select Add Game, and Add Non-Steam Game. Select the shortcut
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.

I quite liked the Cobra mk 3 - a good all round ship with good firepower & cargo capacity

Now though i have my Asp Explorer so i can go travelling :)

found the asp explorer to be a decent ship albeit i was not struck on the internals. but yes a good jump range is always nice when exploring.

The wait for new stuff is killing me, I might just finally take a trip out to Sag A* to kill some of the time.

Such speedy content delivery :lol:

We don't have a release date (maybe end of the month, maybe) but they're coming....

I can't wait for the first time Thargoids shred a Type 9 who was idiot enough to undock unarmed, unshielded and without upgraded plating, just for the glorious tears that'll be on the forums and reddit.

Made nearly 300 thousand credits on a single run after upgrading my ship. Went from a Hauler up to a Cobra I think it is. Picked a mission which would pay me about 225 thousand just for doing it. Got to the correct system and got a message saying that they would add on another 25 grand if I did it within the time limit... They gave me 24 hours for some reason. Did the mission and delivered some cargo along the way which increased the money I was getting.

Might not seem like a lot but to me that was a big pay off, usually most of the jobs I do have been netting me small profits, so this was a big pay off for me which I am pleased about
