What's the new version like?

I made elite status on the BBC Micro back in the day. Loved that game...

Got it recently but it's somewhat on the backburner for me. Hate the game when yu don't have a docking computer...

Got the X series to run through too. Those weren't too bad.

This is potentially very geeky, but I figured out how to avoid the need for docking computer on the beeb version.

Approach the Space station and circle around until you find the entrance. Fly towards the entrance from any angle and get as close as you possibly can. Don't worry about the angle. Then kill the speed to zero and then climb / dive / roll until you are locked onto dead centre of the orbited planet.

Add some speed and fly towards the planet. Then kill speed to zero again, dive or climb 180 degrees. You will then be locked straight onto the space station entrance. Add a bit of speed and tweak the roll to keep the letterbox horizontal. You fly straight in!

I did say it was geeky, but might work on the new version.

The docking computer is pretty cheap, and still plays that tune as it docks :D

I'm flying a fully loaded bounty hunting viper, 2 beam lasers and 2 C2 multicannons.

Get the sol permit and you can fly around earth.

Have only managed about an hour on it as work is punishing at the moment, but found it very difficult to control with keyboard and mouse. Docking is almost and impossibility. Need to give it some more time before I make judgement

Buy a Black Widow flightstick, they are about £25 in pc world and you will find the game much better.

I been thinking of picking it up, it looks interesting, and maybe a place holder for No Man's Sky which I'm really looking forward too. The write ups I've read have given me mixed feelings though.

Does it rate like an updated Wing Commander/freelancer type experience?

I m tempted to buy the graphics look great...but trying to shoot down an enemy looks way too cumbersome on the tutorial vids....


I ve played Gainjun Star Conflict recently but much prefer their War Thunder WW2 aviation sim...

Taking down enemies can be cumbersome, can be "simple". Just depends upon your craft, configuration, reflexes. I lack the last of those, sadly.

sorry mate I haven't played anything in the series. I'm not an overly big fan of the genre. Actually I haven't played a worthwhile space sim since Wing Commander III-- and I was about 11 years old.

Well, basically it's an open ended game. Become a pirate? Become a bounty hunter? Explorer? Trader? All your choice. You make your money, you buy craft, equip craft to play the way you want to.

The concept more than anything takes getting used to because it's not a game with a definitive end point.`

And if you play the open mode then it's multiplayer, so at anytime you might bump into a real person not a computer controlled ship. What you choose to do is up to you, you can chat with them, team up with them or attack them.

The other day I was cruising around sol and picked up a signal way off, went for a nose and it turned out to be voyager 2, when you get close it even plays the recording that it does in real life, greetings from earth etc, one bit is in Welsh :D

So its like Privateer or Freelancer by the sounds of it. I might give it a go, if I see a sale.

Yeah, both of those built off the original Elite series. The X series was also incredibly heavily influenced. I quite liked that one.

I'm thinking of getting voice attack so you can talk to you're ship and give it commands.

Saving up for an asp Explorer and heading into the core, do some discovery.
