That looks like a good stick for the price of £50. As and when you do get chance to use it I would really appreciate your views on it.

Hi Jason,

Have you been able to play with your joystick yet. Is it good? No worries if not had chance etc. Just getting close to buying one as well so first hand feedback would be great.

Hi Jim,

Yes have had a little bit of time using joystick but most of that has been setting it up, this thread from the Elite forum came in handy-
http://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=16140
So now set up I am just getting used to using it, have had a few bumpy landings but getting better as I remember the right buttons to press(without keep looking at the sheet).
Yes I think it is worth getting if you dont want to splash out too much, nice and solid and it feels good, I have got both halfs connected(with keyboard behind)as not enough room to have each side of the keyboard.
So don't think you will be disapointed Jim if you decide to get it(I hope).

For those who've been waiting like me, a full release date has just come out - 16th December

If you pre-order for £35 you get some bonus stuff, https://store.zaonce.net/elite-dangerou ... erous.html
Not sure whether I'll do that yet or wait for it to settle down a bit after release.

Can anyone in the beta tell me: can you play the game offline with just AI or is it always in an online environment? Are servers only hosted by the game creators or can you host them yourself?

You can play solo, Its still connected, so anything you affect in your game affects everyones (I.e. stock levels), but you will not see any human players.
There is going to be an offline version but its not ready yet.

You cant host your own servers but you can join groups so you only see people in that group, but like solo you are still "in" the multiplayer environment.
The group mode is still a bit hit and miss atm as to whether you can see people or not. I can only meet Chris about 50% of the time if we make our own group.

Ok, thanks Dave.

It looks so awesome, I think I'll take a punt on the pre-order :)

Great stuff. Groups are a little bit hit and miss at the moment as Dave said but once we can get a TSD Clan group please do join.

Hi folks,

If you're playing, you might find me in ED with the name Cmdr Ruanco. Currently only Harmless though :)

Excellent stuff ruth. I will add you to my friends so that hopefully we will meet in space one day.

I am looking forward to the ability for multiple saves. Then we could all start a new save together and set out to explore space :D
