15 bathrooms? Why? Those are nice turlets though. I'd get an aquarium turlet built if I had stupid money like that.

I don't know, man. I don't think I could squeeze it out if a stupid fish would be staring me right in the eye. Paranoia and all that...

I want to shit alone and in peace!

To everyone hoping for a DAI sale, here's some breaking (maybe literally BWAAHAHA ) news:

The game is not even being sold on Steam. It's an EA game. Origin only. Stop hoping for a DAI sale on Steam. It won't happen. Not this year at least.

Flash sales only every 12 hours and voting only every 24 hours instead of every 8 hours is a welcome change. Less grind, less watching the clock and less cursing if you've missed an 8 hour period!

Yep. I've mapped everything to my Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS via TARGET (no scripting, just regular assignments) without any need to use a 'shift' function or the layers and plenty of free buttons (on the throttle at least... the stick is in full use). It's really not that much.

So, I'm going to hold off and wait on Star Citizen. I know that game is still a year or more away. but I'm content to wait.

Well, I hope you do realize that Star Citizen with all of the supported control devices and the myriad of features that have been promised is very likely going to be infinitely more complex in the controls customization and setup department than Elite Dangerous. Elite Dangerous is pretty much still far over on the light and easy side of things compared to any real complex (flight/space) sims.
You might want to stick to Call of Duty if this is too challenging for you. Honestly.

After all the praise I read here, I cannot wait to buy the complete game (GOTY or Platinum Edtion or whatever it will be called) at next year's Christmas Steam sale!

^ this... or the year after that because I don't really want to pay more than 9.99 in the end. It will happen though. Just a lil more patience...

Actually it would be pretty cool to be able to stream XBone games to a PC.

Why the fuck would you wanna do that? You can get the shitty port for less money (or free even if you're one of those freebie fuckfaces called a 'pirate') and play it entirely lag-free directly on your PC.
It's not like the fucking ShitBone has any exclusives even worth streaming. That piece of shit lame ass fuck device from that cocksucking PC-backstabbing bunghole place called Microsoft.

Aaaahhh much better...

Well, unless they have somehow fixed it, mining used to be very profitable until recently. You just had to find a good asteroid that yielded lots of palladium, milk it dry, log out, log back in, milk the asteroid dry again because it respawns its resources when you log (a weakness of the instancing stuff).
Several people with ships outfitted solely for mining have made millions with this exploit in the early gamma.

Man, you guys really hate an optional inanimate software program that intends no harm to anyone.

I dont hate Origins. I just hate that its an exclusive EA store/drm platform in one package. If Origins had a wider choice of overlapping games from different publishers I would even consider it as an alternative to Steam. Since this is EA we are talking about: NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!

OK, this might be a regional thing or whatever but I (Europe) could easily buy lots of 3rd party games from Origin like ACU, AC4, FarCry 4, Wasteland 2, Tomb Raider, EVE Online, Watch Dogs, Bound by Flame, Blackguards, some Splinter Cell games, Remember Me, Metro 2033 and Last Light, Resident Evil Revelations, Hitman Absolution, Saint's Row, Euro Truck Simulator, Darksiders 2, The Secret World, you know... I think by now it should be clear that they do not only carry the EA catalogue .

As I docked I was reading the news at the station some of the top player pirates have nearly 300,000 bounty on their head already!

Haha yes that's probably mostly the dumbasses who thought there'd be a wipe and went bonkers shooting anything in sight all willy-nilly. Welp, and now with no wipe happening they are finding themselves at the center of attention all of a sudden .

It's a timed exclusive, these happen all the time, let's not get carried away.

Rape and murder happens all the time, let's not get carried away.

Besides didn't Sony and Capcom just do the exact same thing with SF5, like yesterday?

There is a huge difference in that Sony does not have any stakes in the PC. I'm totally fine with Sony doing everything in their power to make the PS4 the best entertainment product. It's their very own closed platform and they can do as they please.

The fuckers from Microsoft, however, "own" both the PC Windows as well as the ShitBox platforms. We all know their priorities. In Microsoft's ideal world we are all using our PCs and MS Windows and Office for work and the ShitBox to wind down on the couch in the evening. You know, fuck the consumer and their idea of how to spend their spare time because Microsoft knows better and makes that decision for us! Awesome - like not at all...

Additionally Microsoft has outright sabotaged and destroyed the PC Windows gaming platform by actively shutting down most of their internal PC game dev studios (Ensemble and Aces for example) and striking many disgusting exclusive deals with 3rd parties to fuck PC gamers in the ass while at the same time claiming about once a year that the PC really matters to them.

If you can not see how Microsoft is effectively one giant big unwiped brown asshole, then I don't know what else you need, except maybe Nutella dude squatting over your face and showing you his goatse style...(?)

News Comments > Flight Simulator X Lands on Steam Next Week
15. Re: Flight Simulator X Lands on Steam Next Week Dec 10, 2014, 20:31 CJ_Parker
 
Add-ons. Not everything works with Prepar3d so people who have invested huge amounts of money in FSX add-ons that are not compatible with Prepar3d would be very hesitant to make the switch.
Also, the rumors of much improved performance might just be that. Rumors. At the core it's still FSX and many people are in fact reporting worse performance with Prepar3d if you look around popular sim forums like AVSIM. The experience doesn't seem to be consistently better for everyone, although at least the OOM/VAS issues seem to be all but gone.
It's a mixed bag. There's definitely quite a bit of research required before taking the Prepar3d plunge to check if any of your "must have add-ons" actually work with it.

I'm really interested in what these guys can do next with this and FSXI.

That's just the big question isn't it? Are they really working on anything that would warrant the "FSXI" label or are they only working on more add-ons for FSX? Going by the Train Simulator history, DTG are going to milk this cow dry until the udders start bleeding. Expect thousands of little DLC packs for FSX.

As for FSX itself, it is severely suffering from its limitations. DirectX 9 performs like crap. DirectX 10 has never really worked and has only been made working via a payware addon by a dude named Steve. The performance is still only less crappy and not exactly stellar (depending on add-ons but if you go for the best stuff out there, then the performance, even on high end PCs, goes right down the shitter).
And then there's the dreaded OOM/VAS (out of memory or virtual address space) issues that occur if you have many add-ons for great visuals and detail installed plus a complex plane like the PMDG planes (737 NGX or 777).

It would be awesome, of course, if DTG could revamp FSX to the point of true 64-bit and DirectX 11 support but I believe it's already been established they won't be touching FSX' core/source. Going by DTG's questionable reputation (feel free to google how "happy" Train Sim fans seem to be with DTG), we're probably better off for it. FSX is like one of those old cars that does not run smooth but works and is magically held together by spit and glue. You don't really want to touch anything in order to not disturb whatever it is that causes it to keep going.

Yes you can, I've seen from the main menu group management options and communication options, friends list etc., but I've never looked into it tbh.
There was also microphone mute option in the controls menu so I assume there are couple of ways to communicate.

Warning... the multiplayer features are still very barebone. The grouping stuff you see in the main menu only serves the purpose of a filter.
You can choose between open play (be able to see and be attackable by everyone), group play (be able to see and be attackable only by members of that group) or solo play (be hidden from everyone and only be attackable by NPCs).
You can switch seamlessly between these modes so if you know someone's camping outside the station waiting to kill you just switch to solo to avoid them.
BTW, if you want to play in MP but avoid PvP there is a large PvE group (far over 1000 players) called "MOBIUS". There is also a fake group called "MOBIUS." with a dot at the end. Be sure to avoid the "trap". Just enter the group name from the name menu, click join and whenever a group admin is online, they will invite you.

Back on chat and grouping: There is unfortunately no real option to group yet. You can just follow someone else, of course, but real group play is still work-in-progress. And chat (including VoIP) only works if you target someone AFAIK. Then you can chat directly with them but only them. It's one of the major points of criticism right now. You could also check out this clip for more info...

Ugh thanks for the TR reminder and what a bunch of cockfags Microsoft are (and to a lesser extent Square Enix for accepting the tasty bribe).
Come on Mickeysoft... it's Xmas time, why don't you fuckwads make us feel all warm&fuzzy inside and tell us just once more how much you care about PC gaming, hm?

All that aside, personally, I don't think it will really be truly "done" (leaving aside the expansions) for a few months yet. I think there's still a fair bit of tweaking that is still necessary to make things like the economy run more smoothly and demystifying elements of the faction interactions (which unfortunately can only be done by trial and error), and the civilization and NPC part of the galaxy could use some fleshing out and variety.

The list of priorities should be (and strictly in this order!):

1) More tutorials and explaining how shit works. The existing combat and travel tutorials are way too basic. They will lose tons of new players who won't be willing to put in the effort to learn how to play via the forums or YT. They need to make detailed tutorials on exploration, mining, smuggling, bounty hunting and the galactic market at the very least.

2) In parallel massively overhaul the ease of use plus add many much needed usability fixes like route planning, grouping for multiplayer, and just generally scrutinize everything for where more intuitive controls can be added. There is LOTS of stuff that is either missing or too well hidden even though it should be much more accessible in plain sight.

3) Only when 1 + 2 are done, should they start adding content and expansions. First get the basics right. Crunch with the entire team for a month or so in the new year and deliver the one huge "usability patch" in February.
It's what the game needs the most right now. It needs new players to stick with the game, not scare them off. The foundation has been laid and it's decent enough if players are willing to work out the finer parts for themselves. As we know, most players are lacking this kind of patience. That's why FD need to get into high gear to properly explain their game to the players. Make it more accessible, not by dumbing shit down but just by explaining how shit works.
They are so close.... it would be a shame to see this game fail just because of a lack of accessibility.

OK now it all makes sense. It's fully understandable that if they blow their PC budget on lame HD rehashes of ancient games that they can't be arsed to deliver decent console ports of more modern titles like FC4 or ACU.
