I remember a few years ago the Kickstarter was struggling.......


Well it's almost with us and it already looks fucking amazing.

Who else backed it?

Any one else getting it?

I upgraded to get on the Beta and it looks very good indeed....

I'm waiting for a Flightstick to arrive before I jump in......... And on that, I think Flightsticks are going to be gold dust in a few months.

I know some of you are all good with mouse/keyboard, but these will be rare, so here's a link https://uk.webuy.com/product.php?sku=SP ... -UyffldWuw
£22 delivered.

There were 12 three days ago, now 4 left.

Be good to stick tips and questions in here as well.

I'll grab it when it hits the Frugal G-Spot. Frontier Elite 2 was one of my old time favourite.

Not sure about flight stick yet, it may require one but I may struggle to get sign off from the Wife, I guess it's dependent in size of it all.

I'll probably jump in when the full game comes out. The whole early access thing kind of rubs me up the wrong way, and this one goes as far as charging considerably more for beta and alpha access.

Would be interested in a stick but the majority aren't very lefty friendly :-( Best I can see is the Thrustmaster 16000 but that's a bit pricey.

Also, anyone else looked at Star Citizen? Looks very good, similar kind of thing to Elite from the Wing Commander honcho. Has a ridiculous amount of funding behind it and certainly seems very ambitious in its scope. Similar beta access setup for that if you pay more ($45USD I think for beta)

They're after for more funding for Star Citizen, I am interested, but full release is much further down the line.

whats available to play on Star Citizen at the min by all accounts is quite often a broken mess, I'll be diving into that too once its a bit more stable.

But Elite, what an experience, stick is on the way and I'm seriously considering saving up for a occulus dev kit too

Think the combat bit of it available now, but it was just a hangar to let you walk around your ship and sit in it before that! Pretty sure you need to have bought a hefty Alpha package to get in right now.

$40 gives you access now, Ive had a look but I'll wait for that one. I'm not liking the way the more you pay the better ship you get, a bit whiffy of pay to win. No roadmap for development either, and the Combat section launched about 8 months behind schedule too, they sure must be enjoying that $48 million plus they have raised so far

I KickStartered it, but not enough to get in yet. I need to double check what paid. The combat thing is supposed to be out. I have loads of Microsoft USB joysticks
