      With the upcoming DLC, isn’t Elite Dangerous just Star Citizen-lite, but more optimized and polished?

        The ability to walk around at all, you’re perma glued to your seat. Elite has its fun moments but the overwhelming majority of the time is spent grinding

          If only they made it possible to actually get out of the ships and walk around and maybe have FPS combat it would be one of my favorite games of all time.

        In ED you’re a ship, in Star Citizen you’re a person in a ship. It’s much more complex of a game since it basically is a sci fi FPS first, with really really advanced vehicles that need to mine, race, sly in space, go to warp, fight, and manuver in atmosphere.

        Star Citizen has actual flight models like flight Simulator X, meaning different ships handle differently when in an atmosphere. Not all of them handle well. There are a variety of ship types for various roles. A bomber in space does not serve the same purpose as a bomber for a planet and they look different.

        There are bases, land, tanks, a plethora of ground vehicles. A bounty system for killing bad players. Tons of weapons.

        I like ED but there’s kind of a big tech gap here.

            What are you talking about? ED doesn’t have any of that shit. It’s fine, but comparing ED to SC is comparing Doom 1 to Doom Eternal – one just has a lot more going on than the other.

      I dont see how a game can be a -lite version of something that will never come out.
      ED does its own thing and does not make the mistakes that SC does with scope creep. ED is a very flawed game that is for sure but if you want the ability to explore the whole galaxy and make your place in it its among the few that is out and you can actually play right now.

          gently caress Fdev. The artists and sound team are top tier but the gameplay past thirty hours is so gently caressing grind heavy and repetitive.

          Clearing out my first alien base was fun until I realized I’d need to do it literally fifteen more times to get a single item out of it.

            Its honestly worth it. I dont even play to make progress anymore I just chill out for 30m listening to the ambience and combat sounds.

          it is, but it isnt enough, it 100% absolutely has to have ship boarding and stealing, even if you cant keep them..they could just make it so you can only board npc ships, steal them and black market sell the ship.

          they need to add properly multiplayer, clans and fleets, a couple more SRV/Fighters wouldnt go a miss, like a SRV Hover Tank, and a SLF Mining Drone.

            It sounds crazy but they need to take some notes from sea of theives and allow more multicrew persistance in the bigger ships and make them more micro managed for bigger crews in combat and balance, allow boarding, ship stealing, and proper cargo piracy.

            Like an experienced captain can fly a big ship, or could maybe hire npcs to help, but a small crew on a small ship who knows what they are doing can with skill mop up against big ships if they have the pilot and crew to do the work, like an experienced 4 man pirate crew on a ship like an engineered cheiftain should be a threat to everyone, and maybe a 2 manned conda with a mildly experienced crew might not be able to outfly, outfight or deal with them.

            A single piloted eagle however or a two man heavy gunned eagle might outfly and escape them or outgun them.

      cant even walk around your ships, or board other ships, or steal ships or multicrew, multifleet or multiplayer properly.

      its literally just a gently caressing, get out of your ship like an SRV and pew pew at planetary outposts and walk around a station random generated quest bullshit.

        You cant do any of that in Elite or Star Citizen.

            Cant do any of that in SC you lying gently caressface, its too buggy/glitchy and none of it works. Not to mention it isnt a game anyway its a tech demo.

              yeah it’s buggy but that doesn’t mean you can’t do them

              walking around ships and boarding them goes without a hassle, stealing a ship is just boarding it and getting in the pilot seat, multicrewing a ship works fine except they haven’t implemented 90% of those features but you can still have a buddy in a co-pilot seat doing nothing or a manned turret and it all works just fine

              flying as a fleet is also possible but the only special functionality is being able to simultaneously warp to the same destination

              saying it’s all a tech demo doesn’t change the fact that all of those features are currently possible

          space engineers has is own problems, like stability long term on a server, it actually being able to handle more than 3 big ships in a server at once and its lack of npc ayy lmaos.

          if space engineers had half a dozen more handheld weapons, the ability to add custom npc aliens like xenomorphs etc the community could add thousands of hours of mission/campaign based content.

        If you cant gently caressing have a proper crew, land at a station/outpost and steal a bigger ship, or pirate npc ships and steal them and shoot npc humans as well as other players whats the gently caressing point, just more shallow shit as wide as an ocean and as deep as a puddle.

      Have they even revealed what you’ll be able to do?

      Pretty sure you can’t EVA into space and if it’s just running around on more barren planets they can gently caress right off. The buggy already had terrible gameplay.

            They added the grindy stuff just to appeal to losers that aren’t happy unless their game of choice is a 9-5 job. You don’t have to do it. Your first hundred hours of gameplay are just exploring and learning how the game works, that alone places ED far above average in value compared to other games. After that its just a sandbox to do whatever you want in. Don’t be a cumsoomer, be a customer that wants their moneys worth.

            The only valid criticism of ED is the PvP is horrible and PvE isn’t much better. Both best in small doses, hence its reputation as a space trucker simulator. Normal people don’t enjoy fifteen minute orbit fights in fully engineered FDLs like its some special ed mechwarrior 4. If they made PvP much faster paced without ginormously bloated shield and health pools I’d be doing it all the time.
