Yep for sure give the controller a try first. The amount of buttons you need to efficiently control your ship in a dogfight I am not sure you will be able to do all that with a 360 controller, but like I said try it first and you'll know for sure after an hour or so gameplay if you need a proper HOTAS or the 360 pad will be fine.
Elite has a shit ton of ship controls already and they are adding more stuff as the beta progresses.
If the game is installed just jump into the controls screen to see what I mean.

You can assign different controls to use during docking from the controls used during dogfighting, primary weapons, secondary weapons, landing gears, silent running modes, power distributions between systems etc etc. You'll see.

right now Xbox One controllers are too expensive but when they get cheaper I'd get one just for PC. I'd say better for FPS games than a PS4 controller, and more precise. mouse and keyboard is ultimately the best, but not while reclining on the couch.
Oh for sure they have their use for certain games, but I am not sure if the xbone controllers get cheaper I'd get one or just get another 360 controller when the one I use dies.
I am not using a controller that often and for me personally the bone controller doesn't offer as much benefit to justify the price difference.
I also have a 360 I play games with my kids on and having extra 360 controller always comes handy when playing coop games.

I figured that was the deal, but you don't have to request it again with every reset, right?
No the name request is a one time only thing.
Yes the money and stats will be reset with each beta phase I believe.
Oh and if you are fed up with your mouse+keyboard controls or your xbox360 controller check this out a very highly recommended HOTAS for very little money. This thread where people discussing all the config options.

As far as comparison between SC and Elite, well after about 40 minutes of trial and error trying to login last night I finally managed to get in and play the dogfight for a bit and I am not impressed at all.
Looks pretty and the animations are top notch but otherwise I wasn't having fun.

Tim here sums it up pretty well for me.
Preset config, no support for HOTAS, no TrackIR support, just a few things that bothered me.
I am sure it will get better with time but SC has a long way to go, and it looks like they are more concerned with how pretty the game looks than how fun it is to play it. Physics, controls those sort of things.

I'm not sure I totally understand that last sentence (I'm sure it'll make sense later, perhaps after I fully wake up), but I did go to the Command Name tab (assuming that's the right one) and put on in...Thanks!

Kicking off the install now, before work...


When you login to MP your name will not appear in game you will be called backer #xxxx (x-a number )
You have to login to that website I linked and request your commander name what you will be called in game.
They check every single commander name requests manually and assign it to your account so when you login the next time (into multiplayer) you will have your requested commander name as opposed to your backer plate number.
The process will take a few days because like I said they check every single name to make sure nobody registers commander Chris Roberts or something like that

Here is the copy paste info from the forum:
Hi everyone,

As most of you probably know, at the beginning of this week we opened up the facility for all alpha and premium beta players to finally change their commander names, through https://support.orerve.net/. Well today we attempted a batch update of names for the first time, and it turns out a nasty Trumble may have got stuck in the works...

The result of this is that any name requests that have been made through orerve.net this week have sadly been lost, and will need to be resubmitted. We're extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused by this, and will busy ourselves with approving all of your commander names in preparation for the beta!

The process for submitting your commander name is the same as before:

1. Login at: https://support.orerve.net/
2. Navigate to the ‘COMMANDER PROFILE’ tab
3. Enter your desired new commander name in the ‘Request a New Name’ field and press the ‘Request Name Change’ button.
4. If this is approved it will update the commander name at the top of the page.
5. If it is automatically denied a red message will appear above the field, stating the reason for the rejection.
6. If it is manually denied the player will receive an email telling them that their name has been rejected, once the batch update is complete.



If you have any questions feel free to pitch them below, and sorry again!
Link to the forum post

Hopefully this makes a little more sense

That is a great site. I've been using it for a while now.
You can have it synced with your Steam wishlist and it will e-mail you if a game on your wishlist is on sale anywhere. You can set price range that you are interested in so it will only alert you if a certain game is on sale for your desired price range.
Super useful.

OK, SM, money dropped. Won't get to try it until at least tomorrow night, but I can kick off the DL in the meantime.

I'm thinking the last space game I played was Freelancer...been far too long.

Awesome!
You won't regret it.
Start out with the single player scenarios first, they will ease you into the game and combat.
If you see me online and have any questions feel free to shoot me a msg on steam.
I've been chatting it up with Trevellian also he is in the beta as well.
Check out the official forum, people are really helpful there. Most of them are in their 40s-50s laid back and ready to help you out. There are a lot interesting discussions going on about new features people are requesting to be in the game as well as controller setups and issues with different joysticks etc.
Also go here: https://support.orerve.net/http/user/loginform
login to your account and request your user name, whatever you want to use in game.
Do this before you play the MP because when they reset your user name in game your in game account will also reset so if you've earned money you will loose it.

re. Mad Catz® Reports Fiscal 2014
That should turn around rather quickly, with games like Star Citizen and Elite those new joysticks are flying off the shelves.
Their new X-55 is a big hit, pretty much sold out everywhere as soon as anyone got stock. Including EU distributors.

There will be different stations
An early sneak peak look of the Orbis station
The GUI is going through some changes. This is the first iteration of the trading interface.

Good to hear. Thanks Meat. However I do notice that station still has that stupid rectangular opening.
Oh yes that is the iconic docking opening.
Tbh if you are flying a smaller ship like the Sidewinder or Cobra it is not a big deal but with bigger ships like the Lakon Type 9 or the Anaconda it will take some getting used to. Not to mention the cargo you will spill if you smoke your ship on entry or exit the station.
One other thing they've done is you carry chemicals or explosives the small hit to the ship can cause it to explode so those will be extra expensive to carry and trade.

There are just so many things going on for this game I could sit here talk about it for days.
The future looks even more exciting. Planetary landing is one of those things I am really looking forward to.

Edit: here is a size comparison between the ships that are currently in the beta, there will be 20 different ships when the game comes out
From left to right:
Anaconda, Lakon Type 9, Cobra Mk. III, Eagle Mk. II, Sidewinder Mk. I, F63 Condor, navigation beacon, standard canister.

There will be docking computers (not available for us yet) that will help you with docking bigger ships.
Dock an Anaconda is quiet a challenge.

No subscription.
As for advantage, well the Alpha players have advantage over us beta players.
It's the way the cookie crumbles. Same goes for Star Citizen or any games that are released early.
However this game you can play in single player and you can safely ignore the MP all together if you wish.
Not sure I can say the same about SC

Yes NPCs. These areas are for new players to "grind" for cash to have some money to upgrade the ship, buy a new one or invest into some products to trade.
There are areas in the game where players hang out for PVP.

This video sums it up pretty well:
