Elite Dangerous
braddw25
Does anyone have any first hand knowledge of the game Elite Dangerous? I am in the mood to start another space combat sim. In my opinion, there has never been one released that has come close to doing what Starshatter does. Best case scenario from my perspective would be for a new Starshatter release that is similar to the old game engine with updated graphics and possibly more and newer features. The ability to mod the game is also a big plus as that is something that I genuinely enjoy doing. The satisfaction I derive from seeing one of my creations flying through space in a sim is hard to describe. I am not personally aware of anything that has been released that checks all those boxes. I had high hopes that Star Citizen would be that sim. It might still end up that way, but I am starting to wonder if I will have any reflexes left when that happens. Regardless, I am tired of waiting. I want to look into Elite Dangerous to see if it might work for what i want to do. So to start I thought I would pose some questions here. Does ED allow for command of large warships or is it mainly a starfighter/small craft sim? Is it reasonably easy to mod and is there an active modding community out there? Is anyone else here interested in taking a look see to investigate whether ED could serve as a platform for us to play and mod together? I just have the itch again and with summer vacation imminent I thought this might be a good time to start doing something here.

Elite Dangerous.

As far as I know, ED does not provide modding capability. I don't think one can pilot a Capital ship. Although there are a lot of craft available as one progresses.

It is a graphically beautiful game that support VR well.

The game is continuously being added to and improved. They are adding ground movement and activity with the latest update on the 19th. of this month.

I think One can explore the universe in single player or with others. It is worth looking into except for the lack of modding.

That's all I can think of offhand. bluthumb

Thanks for the info, William. I am going to dig around a bit and see what else I can find out. I have seen videos posted on facebook about the game, but that is about all the experience I have had with it.

I did find an interesting tidbit about a carrier cap ship that a player can own. I don't know if that means the player can control the carrier and it's flight ops or not, but I will do some more checking into that aspect. Most of the ships that I have seen on the web site are corvette sized or smaller. At least it does appear that one can own and fly something larger than a fighter or similar sized craft.

It also appears as though there is some modding of the game going on. Not sure how easy or difficult it is to get modded content in game though.
