They also said the XBox version will launch with PP, so they need to finish that, too.I think we may have a bit longer for 1.3. We haven't had a date for the Mac version yet, I expect that'll be first, then the 1.3 beta which considering the changes will be 2-3 weeks long. The only caveat is that there is a late bank holiday at the end of May in the UK which would be good timing if they can get it all done in a month.
Wow, 1200! That is great!I have 'only' visited around 1200 systems out of the 400,000,000,000 in the game so far. I did a short 1,000 LY trip out to the Witch Head Nebula just after Christmas, then rare traded for a while. I think I left human space around the same time as 1.2 landed so have been pottering around now for quite some time...
I didn't know you could do that! I was notified that you were online too, but I didn't know what I could do with that info. Does it place a marker or something? I have to take a look next time we are online together. BTW: just how far apart were we?The scale of the galaxy is staggering. I saw you logged on yesterday morning and so zoomed out on the galaxy map to see where you were.
I saw the thread but never really looked into it. Sounds like a fun idea for a competition.I'm only about a quarter of the way to the centre of our galaxy and its taken me weeks to get there, admittedly I play an hour here or there. I don't know if you've seen the Buckyball runs on the forums? The current one is a race to Sagittarius A*. The current record is just under 13 hours of real time in an Anaconda. So it would probably take around 36 hours of solid play to travel from one side of the galaxy to the other.
I've been noticing Douglas Adams is a popular topic on the ED forums. I was thinking that I hadn't read Hitchhikers since my HS days. I think I will dust off my old copy and see how it holds up after all these years.Time for a Douglas Adam's quote...
"Space is big. Really big. You just won’t believe how vastly hugely mindbogglingly big it is. I mean you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space."
Yeah, that news item seemed suitably vague for a later reveal.IIRC there was some mention of an Old World faction after the power play reveal so you could be onto something.
I was reading that thread, and the whole debate over the new penalties for ramming. I only have a small ship and I rarely enter port above 100m/s. I think it is a good solution to a nuisance problem.Some of the station names do lend themselves to mockery. Apparently there are problems with rammers at the entrance to George Lucas... Pfft..rammers... :laugh:
Funnily enough George Lucas is orbits Leesti which isn't far from Ridley Scott at Zaonce.
