    @capum15: you don't NEED the fancier scanners if you are just buzzing unknown systems for a bit of extra pocket money... but if you want to go on a big expedition then they would be good to have.Break...

    Hi, solo mode takes very little data... Ctrl+b lets you monitor bandwidth, and it's usually 0 b/s, with up to 3 kb/s during transitions... I think npcs are spawned locally.The total install is about 3...

    Check out this video by Scott Manley, investigating the Slave rebellion mentioned on GalNet. The first bit is trady goodness, then a pretty impressive tour of the conflict area :)

    The trading aspect is very much like euro truck simulator, but there's a whole lot more than that... Just maybe not at the beginning... Think of it as working to save up for the fun toys :).At the mom...

    @lunnington: I actually think that the devs are quite happy being in a niche at the moment :p... Maybe steam will happen down the line. Did you try store.elitedangerous.com?As for the removal of prom...

    @tajasaurus: not only is gamepad support completely native, but also completely bindable (apart from the select button which always gives the pause menu). After a bit of experimentation, I never need ...

    The way FD handled this announcement was absolutely horrific, but I don't think that the removal of offline is. Playing the alpha and beta lets you display the bandwidth being used (measured in bytes ...

    This looks amazing! I'm a low-ish level backer (game plus a couple of extras), and am very pleased at how this is turning out. I'm particularly excited abut it being playable with any build... I never...
