    played frontier quite a bit rather than the origional and enjoyed that esp when i found a glitch to get a huge cargo hold so had a viper defence craft with huge laser massive engines and more cargo space than the big ships lol and was very fast

    Talking of fuel scoops......................

    After Elite and Frontier, I had to get First Encounters (which I still have and manage to get running occasionally). After the first month or so, I'd bought a fuel/cargo scoop and was pirating my way round etc., I noticed that the fuel/cargo scoop was really difficult to scoop cargo up with. I thought 'Bug' and phoned the Help Line. Chatting with the Tech guy, he said, 'You have to get really close to the cargo before it'll work, are you getting close enough.' My reply, 'I'm getting close enough to read the writing on the cargo pod'. There was a pause and then he said, 'What writing................?'

    Thanks, Tech Guy........How about playing the game you're supposed to be supporting.

    It wasn't a bug though, I finally got the hang of it.

    So I'm gonna go home, think about it some more and then maybe have £40 worth........if it ever gets made, then at least my name will go down in some kind of posterity.

    I really hope it does get produced, the gaming world is crying out for it.

    Nice to see what you get for your £20 as well
    Shame I don't have £5000 to blow on a star system! 2 People did though
    We could all team up with our kickstarters and have an Edugeek star system

    I second that notion...

    although, with a £20 pledge each, it'd need 250 of us! Can't see it happening...

    I don't know whether I'm excited by this or not? I remember playing Elite on the CPC and getting annoyed with the uncontrollable space craft. I've tried it several times since then and to be honest Eve gave me the game I was looking for in Elite, I just begrudge paying the subscription.

    If we got an Eve like single player game with an epically huge universe to roam around in then I'd be sold. A multiplayer mode without the subscription, hell yeah! PS3 port? I'd hand over cash today.

    You'd only need £3k now for a frontier system. The £5k tier is all sold out!

    At the rate the £20 tier is selling, I won't be able to get my pledge in for that tonight!

    I would have loved Elite, but I could never dock, so never got far.
