Anyone else on Elite:Dangerous?

I know I'm hi-jacking the idea from the Star Citizen post - but I'd really like to know!

Just in case, CMDR Kaolc here.

    Yes im on it

    Yes, have not played in forever though... I'm currently somewhere near the galactic center exploring. I got a wee bit bored, and the flight mechanics frustrate me a bit (though I love the way interdictions are done)

    You should definitely check it out again... a lot has changed in the past few months let alone the past year. There's landing on planets now, and exploration has had some huge improvements too - combat is better... you can fly in wings with people, etc... it's come a long ways since alpha.

    Yes and no. Picked it up on sale from steam. Didn't like the controls that much. I guess HOTAS would help a lot. Might have to invest in a set.

    I'd say it makes a big difference... had this one forever and I would highly recommend it as a budget option.

    You'll especially want it if they add support for Everspace (though it was a stretch goal that I think never got met).

    Yep, I've got Elite: Dangerous. Haven't played in six months or so -- been devoting time to other games. Maybe I'll visit again in another few months.

    Which games?
  • RaptorAlphaRaptorAlpha Posts: 67Kickstarter Alpha Backer, Space Pro
    Star Citizen, Homeworld Remastered, Homeworld: Deserts of Kharak, all of the Shadowruns, Mechwarrior Online, EVE Online...

    The biggest problem with elite dangerious is when smuggling you can loose a fortune ( days of work ) very frusrating. Also planet landing requires another purchase of 69 dollars or so

    I am indeed on Elite:Dangerous! ;)

    I bought the lifetime pass when it was discounted. That's why I went with the Space Pro pledge for this game too -- it was the lowest one with a lifetime pass.

    I have it but rage quit lol.. Long story with that, I think Everspace is going to have all the differences that make Elite: Dangerous not as fun as it should have been.. :tongue:
  • WoonaWoona Posts: 22Kickstarter Alpha Backer, Space Optimizr
    I also own Elite: Dangerous, but have been a little bored by the lack of diversity in regards to play. I've also been dealing with a bug (which I believe is AMD related) that causes the game to lag into oblivion whilst in supercruise :/ so I'm hoping Everspace can fill the void it left :wink:
  • kirov099kirov099 Posts: 10Kickstarter Beta Backer, Space Dog
    Yep CMDR Kirov099 here. I don't get on all that often though. For me, ED is one of those games that you have to dedicate a large chunk of time to if you want to play, otherwise it's not worth getting on.
  • ShadragonShadragon Posts: 7Kickstarter Alpha Backer, Space Pro
    Yup, multiple E: D accounts in fact. I posted the EQ link on the E: D forums originally after I'd backed the KS.

    I do like my abbreviations.
  • SimplexcraneSimplexcrane Posts: 7Kickstarter Alpha Backer, Space Optimizr
    Yep, 700 hours in.
  • ES_7414ES_7414 Posts: 1Kickstarter Backer, Space Cat
    Yeh I play regularly, bit of a slow patch at the moment (especially within my player group). More people will come back to the game with the season 2 updates. It also seems the thargoids will be coming into the game soon.

    Yep, I'm on E: D and love it but don't get enough time to play. The new Horizons (planetary landings) is very good and if you want to get the most out of it, join a community group like the Hutton Truckers, or the very evil pirates of CODE. I agree that a HOTAS setup makes it a LOT easier to fly - I have a Saitek X52 which works well. I'm CMDR Red_13 if you want to look me up, but I'm in in The Black, exploring.
  • Templar3lfTemplar3lf Posts: 54Kickstarter Beta Backer, Space Dog
    I bought it, played an hour or so, and then the launcher stayed open in the background. I'm not at all fond of the flight mechanics, and about how I constantly over or undershoot anything I aim for and am just lost in a vast expanse of nothing-ness :|

    Unfortunately I do not qualify for the Steam refunds, as I've "played" over an hour of it.
  • SubSub Posts: 12Kickstarter Alpha Backer, Space Booster
    Heh, yeah definitely 'on' Elite Dangerous :) 9am to 5:30pm ;)
  • Merlin HartleyMerlin Hartley Posts: 2Kickstarter Alpha Backer, Space Optimizr
    I play it quite a bit ... on-and-off since beta :)

    I had that too, it's fixed in the latest AMD 'hot fix' driver.
  • WoonaWoona Posts: 22Kickstarter Alpha Backer, Space Optimizr
    @ES_3618 Thanks :) Truth be told, that's the reason I stopped playing. Glad to know AMD might actually be stepping up to the plate on driver support xD I will probably start playing again then. Now if only they could fix the shader cache issue...
  • EzekielEzekiel Posts: 2Kickstarter Beta Backer, Space Dog
    Yea I'm on Elite also haven't played just lately, busy with work! Will dive back into it pretty soon.
  • GriefedGriefed Posts: 14Customer
    Reviving an old thread...not sure if that's appreciated, but meh.
    Yeah, I've sunk a fair amount of time into Elite Dangerous, and there's no end in sight. Currently taking a break from it though, playing some other games. If you want to add me, name's CMDR Griefed (don't worry about Griefed The II showing up, that's my...second...account...yesIhavetwoaccounts)

    ive played a few hundred hrs of elite and when they dropped horizons i was going to wait for it to go cheap but when i heard they was going to sell landing on planets that have atmosphres in a later season i said fk it lol.
    i brought in at beta and im a little salty now and being the game ended up 1 mile wide 3 inches deep i pretty much leave it alone now :(

    The flight controls n Elite: Dangerous are too hard in my opinion. You have to roll too much. I have played it using my Xbox controller and the Mouse/Keyboard. Neither works very well. On the other hand, in EVERSPACE, BOTH control methods work very well B)
  • BadJackDanielsBadJackDaniels Posts: 17Customer
    I am on ED, SC, No Man's Sky and now EVERSPACE.
    In the old times I play X-Wing, Tie Fighter, Wing Commander, Freelancer, Freespace and X Series.

Pre-purchased this and No Mans Sky, have all the star wars, star trek and wing commander games, freelancer, starlancer, freespace, all of the X-games and a ton more nobody has mentioned.
