Elite Dangerous - Alien Defence Patch. EBS Squadron Anyone?

Post by Projectblue » Fri Dec 07, 2018 11:08 pm

Any Elite Dangerous Players here?

With the soon to arrive "Beyond - Chapter 4" patch about to land, is anyone interested in forming an EBS Squadron?

For those not aware, the B.Ch.4 brings the aliens (Thargoids) attacking Human settlements and stations. Stations not defended will be destroyed as the aliens roll through the Galaxy pushing Humanity back.

If anyone is interested, send me a friend request via Frontier under Cmdr Projectblue.

P.s. If you are thinking of starting to play it, there are no quick wins. It's a lot of work.
P.P.S If you already play it and are interested. Bring a BIG ship, with BIG guns. It's going to be 'eventful'.

I'd be interested though I'm currently 20k+ light years out from the bubble I've just been to Sag A and Colonia.

I'd say X series is closer, but yes

They are not exactly the same game :

ED is first a space sim where you have to master the many commands and upgrades of your vessels, and then use it to fight, craft or trade ... and I have a lot left to learn about this !

X universe is more focus on the sandbox side, although there can be a story. X3 allowed you to build and lead an Empire ( be it by trade or piracy or else ), owning thousands of vessels and stations, and organizing their production, transports, military missions etc ... but you can fly your own vessel and do anything a spaceship can do

I haven't played ED in a while, but am interested in getting back into it.

If you haven't already, look into the voice packs. It's called voice attack and it's from https://www.hcsvoicepacks.com/ they do cost, but you can get voices like Brian Blessed being the voice of your ship. It works from a separate program, when you say a command, it will send an instruction to ED to do the things related to what you said, it's really good, and adds that little bit more immersion into the game, especially if you are using VR

Had it sitting in my Steam library for ages. Finally came around to playing it this week. Having quite a blast so far, but of course nowhere near a big ship with big guns, so I don't think I would be of much use. Sent you a friend invite nonetheless. By the way, is anyone taking part in the Distant Worlds 2 expedition that starts tomorrow?
