Boy... its been a long time since my last blog on Elite - almost 4 months! Since then a lot has changed for me - ive switch from an Asp (which was a great ship), to an Anaconda, got 100 million in the bank and have explored the universe a little.

A little after my last post I found mention of a luxury run called - Tenche. On face-value it didn't look like it would offer much, but after trying a test run with my Asp seem to be a fast way to make money. The run invoiced picking up performance-enhancers (from the nearby station), then ... » Read more

Reasons to delete your commander and start fresh over..

First try
The first start of E:D made me think I bought the wrong game!
There were too many commands for Elite:Dangerous.
So I tried this and that, got confused with the keyboard and finally connected an old TM Hotas-X.
Tried the training mission and were unhappy with the game.
Controls were so confusing!
Spend more hours to find other peoples joystick configuration.
Tested them and well played finally E:D.
Got again unhappy with multi-used buttons and bought a TM Hotas ... » Read more

DHLF's avatar Elite Dangerous » I have never written a blog before..

Normally I do not like the idea of posting my personal view in the public.
But elite:dangerous is eating my spare time like no other game before.
Therefore I will give it a try for this..

So what am I expected to do with a blog?

Maybe I should "talk" about my first contact with ELITE in the last CENTURY ^^
Games for home-computers were sold on tapes. Yuck!
The game box contempts:
-a PRINTED manual
-a pretty A3 sized poster with the ship types(filled, not wireframed Smile )
-the tape itself
and a strange plastic ... » Read more

In my last blog I had switched back to an Asp, making me feel some-what safer. However things have changed - the universe is more hostile than ever.

It seems more human players have taken up the role of pirating - stealing and killing from other players, especially on main trade routes / rares (Lave / Altair areas). Myself, I have lost over 350k in hull damage to them and only narrowing escaping a couple of times. Elite & Dangerous is quickly turning into a PvP game which is not what I wanted. I guess I could head off the beaten track, ... » Read more

Its been awhile since my last blog, and a lot has changed since. In my last blog I had only just got a Cobra, which had only basic equipment. Ideally I wanted to reach an Asp but it was a long way off.

Building up money took a long time. I originally wanted to make my money through bounty hunting than trading (I just wanted to do it a different way). I havnt really looked at trading too much (to be honest) as I find it a bit of a mixed bag - sometimes you take goods to a place (which the in-game map says it wants) and yet they dont.

During the past few days ive been playing Elite: Dangerous. The main reason for getting back into it, was that Frontier decided not to wipe our progress at launch. The past our progress has be wiped at very major version.

So instead of opting for the trade route (easiest and safest way), I went down the combat path - praying on wanted ships. I started with a Sidewinder, installing one pulse laser and one multi-cannon when I could. This did okay but I was looking for something better. At this point I was scouting around looking for wanted ... » Read more

It doesnt happen often... seeing a double Rainbow. However today I managed to get a picture of one just outside my window;

Blog picture

The one on the left was very strong, whilst the one on the right was hard to see; disappearing now and again. I did think about having a look over there, but isnt that an old-wife's tale?... there is gold at the end of a Rainbow? ... » Read more

As you may of seen, ive spending a bit of time playing Elite: Dangerous Beta 1.03. At-first it was a bit confusing (like most games), although Beta's games are often even more confusing as there can be a lack of documentation, things missing etc. I think now I have gotten the grips of things.

When you start in your Sidewinder you wonder what to do; so I started to explore, fight and test things - it doesnt matter if you destroy it, as you get another free one. Although being in the weakest ship does mean you have hard start ... » Read more
