Had a awesome day at the Frontier expo in East London.

expo.frontier.co.uk





Elite Dangerous
Planet Coaster

New game coming,
Jurassic World Evolution (theme park style game, like planet coster)

VR Elite Dangerous
I got to have a go at VR on Elite Dangerous with the Oculus Rift.
It was way more immersive than anyone can explain with language or imagery.
I would suggest not to pass trying VR out if you have not, fricking cool stuff :)
The only time I have a bit of motion sickens was when I made sudden movements with the space ship.
VR with FG would be very cool.
I think VR still needs more time for better quality.



T.Flight Hotas One
I got to have a got at the T.Flight Hotas One


The T.Flight Hotas One was not a sturdy as my T16000.m FCS.
The throttle didnt have any hats, and this was apparent wile playing that it really needed one or two hat switches. The throttle also has a middle point for forward and revers of the space ship.
When FSX come to XboxOne this middle point will be annoying as you can fell the middle click as it moves.

This is designed for Elite Dangerous and it did the job well, just a shame it is missing some build quality and buttons.



I was a vey cool day also having 3 lectures by,
Professor Brendan Walker (Thrill Engineer)
World-renowned Palaeontologist John “Jack” Horner
Astrobiologist William Bains




My AspX FX17 ship skin and decal from the event :)

Looks amazing - I keep getting tempted to buy it, but then I think about getting into it & never reappearing :)

I have the T.Flight Hotas One in the post on its way to me :)
The T.Flight Hotas One, is basicly the T.Flight Hotas X (pc) and T.Flight Hotas 4 (PS4)

I got a 25% off from the expo, its £69.99 got it for about £52.

The bit i am quite exited about is my FCS pack peddles plug in and work.

Hmmmm, same here as with enrouge :D What is the price for it on the XBox? Thing is, I was not happy with all the extra money I had to pay to get down to planets and stuff. It would have been up to 100 quid pretty quick.

Squadrons is actually one of those features that will get me back into this I think.

What are you saying Stuart?

remaining silent as I just don't have the cash.

I got the commander deluxe edition xbox for about £30 on offer.
This included the core game and Horizons (planet stuff).
www.frontierstore.net/elite-dangerous-co...-deluxe-edition.html

Horizons is needed to follow the game narrative and other bits like modding ship parts.

Once you have Horizons every part of the game is open to you all the way to the end of 2018.


There is no pay to win in the game like all the others out there.

My one of payment has given me the whole game.



This is not a normal game as in they make say 8 games in 10 years with multipull dlc's to buy at £40 a pop each
This is 3 years into a 10 year plan, and a evolving narrative are.



Sadly the severs are not linked to see each other, PS4, XBO, PC.
But the games narrative is and the markets and missions.


There is a type of Premium coming to Elite and it not pay to win.
Details on this are not really out there yet.
I believe Frontier are not here to screw games like EA do.

So, I understand that I can buy Season passes, right? What do you think - if I buy the Horizons Season Pass would that be applicable to my Elite Dangerous Beta product and if, does that include all other Season passes?

I am going to look in to it a bit more.

From what I know now the season pass is up till the end of 2018.
I think you beta is now the ED Core.
So the only bit you need is the HORIZONS - SEASON PASS

HORIZONS opens the whole game up (till end 2018 i think) Frontier may extend that with a form of Premium. This might be how they make there money to continue the game and keep the bace price at £40 Core and Horizons


Alien storyline Guardians sites. There is a mission that gets you 100mil credits takes about 5-6 hours to do but a nice game boost, sadly it was nerfted and the old reward was 200mil, I did it twice :) this was last January.

Thargoid invasion/running from somthing/Thargoid civil war.
No one know's yet as it is unfolding as the weeks go on.

Engineers (ship mod's)


I play mostly on Mobius private sever elitepve.com/index.php PVE only no killing real people.
makes for a nice social side of the game with out getting ganked. I do play in Open but thats if i am up for the fight as my Asp Explorer has no guns and modded 52LY Jump range :)



Ill do a bit of reading up and check these.
