Good Evening All,
Back in... well, a long time ago, when I was a wee youngster I spent many a night playing the original Elite. I couldn't stop playing, the game put my mind into dreams, exploring the unknown - was the first game that got me hooked into something different, I'd always dreamed of being an astronaut as a child - this was the closest I was ever going to get!
I started playing Elite Dangerous when the game went live and played through to the Horizon's expansions which I purchased, I think I was hoping to re-live them childhood memories, it didn't hit the spot, what with being a miserable old sod!
I stopped playing shortly after the release or Horizons, I spent my spare time playing EVE Online, which I've played since 2003 - all of a sudden, I was sick with EVE and stopped gaming... you never stop thinking though when you have some spare time, well I don't, work this, work that - I needed a release, thought about Elite and downloaded Horizons again.
Not sure why, but it feels different, it feels better - after a an hour or two watching you tube, I've tried all sorts in my trusty ASP. Did 300 jumps heading to Sag A but turned back after learning about Engineers - did some mining, did some trading, finally got access to Sol... got the FSD lo level 3.
I'm now aiming for the Krait Phantom and actually getting an engineered 5 FSD, although in no rush, once done though I'll get the Guardian FSD boost and then finally going to head off to Sag A and beyond. Anyhoo, a ,long winded hello... o7
