Re: 2.3 The Commanders News from FD

After watching Ant's video, I was reminded of the new communications panel, which may be the best improvement of this patch, along with the commander creator. And with ship naming, I want that painted on my ship - not just electronically. The should offer dozens of fonts and sizes, and even allow yo...

Re: 2.3 The Commanders News from FD

Well, I know there's a lot that hasn't been shown yet and I'm sure the beta live streams will answer more but I thought I would start capturing some questions now to come back to/ test in beta Can you join another ship at any stage or do you need to be docked? yes and no If not docked then what hap...

Re: 2.3 The Commanders News from FD

Yeah, I watched it too - my first "live" live stream. I guess I'm a purist, but I was very disappointed with the turret gunner implementation. I had no idea how they were going to do it, but I was expecting something clever, not just using the new camera. Maybe they can make improvements, ...

Re: I am wanting info on 40" screen

Yeah, I should clarify that 1080p on a 40" desktop screen is probably too low a resolution. But if sitting back, then it's probably fine, depending on what you find acceptable and can actually see. I have a 60" 1080p TV, but I stream movies at 720p to save on bandwidth and don't really not...

Re: I am wanting info on 40" screen

Slightly off/on topic: I'm too lazy to read about it, and I'm not currently in the market, but what's the story with HDR (high dynamic range) that I keep hearing promoted? Is this just the latest feature that you'll want to turn off, with all the other features, that just make the picture look like ...

Re: 2.3 The Commanders News from FD

... the creator seemed quite similar to the one for planet coaster, just merely re skinned and different art assets. That's smart and efficient. It'd be pretty stupid to develop something completely different for two current generation games - you know, from the same company. FD, please spend your ...

Re: 2.3 The Commanders News from FD

I missed the live stream but noted that CMDR Barking Mad (one of the two of that name) has been summarising changes as they did for 2.2 https://elitedangerous2016.wordpress.com/2017/01/31/the-commanders-1-8-2-3-preview/ You can watch it here. What I've wanted for the longest time is the ability to ...

Re: Interesting. Ian Bell taking notice?

I don't know/understand the details, but it sounds like a load of crap and I hope this Jordan guy loses his shirt. :twisted:

Re: Is it just me....

I don't hear it, but I haven't heard Elmer Fudd, et al, since the progs got them all taken off the TV 30 years ago because they were so racist, violent and hateful. Best cartoons ever, imho. I actually used to see them in the theater before movies (and before previews and stupid quizzes). This song ...

Re: MOBIUS COLONIAL REPUBLIC NAVY IS A GO

Yup, the planetary outpost for MCRN is there and has a healthy commodity market, but no missions and I didn't check factions, but I was welcomed by somebody. Then I bought an SRV and headed north to see if I could drive around this potato. I made it out of the main crater and saw some very strange s...
