Thank you, mjn.mixael, for hard work on releasing MediaVPS and quick update :yes:

Is there any chance to include better radar icons from BirdofPrey?

Hang on a sec. If a big, powerful, expensive ship doesn't afford me any advantage, what's the ****ing point in playing the game? I'm supposed to grind for hours to level up my money and ships only for that to give me no advantage over someone who just started in a crappy fighter? Why the **** would I bother? Chris Roberts has just admitted that there is no point in actually playing his game. There's no progression.

Yep, If there's one thing Kerbal Space Program taught me; (and it taught me many things) It's that going to the Sun is fracking insanely Delta-V / fuel consuming.

I can't wait either.  :nod:

I already pointed the problem of strict FSO version requirements some time ago.

"version": "3.8.0-2" will run 3.8.0-2 only and refuse to run on newer version even if you try.

"version": ">=3.8.0-2" will run just fine on newer version if you set them to.

I don't think the first one is good. You can't know if a mod will be incompatible with a future release beforehand.

My clanmates tell me that they are exceptional from T8 upwards. The Gadjajajajajaja Madraraja, in particular seems to be a gem.

I'm actually pretty excited about this mission. I'm looking forward to seeing what they find out about the stuff they're trying to learn about.

OK, I don't know much about it besides that it's a hard thing to do.

IANACoder, but the implementation of SDL means it's now theoretically possible for engine support to be added for additional axes and multiple controllers.  Obviously actually developing that support is non-trivial.

Thank you all for trying the MediaVPs 3.8 Early Access. We've just released a new version addressing your concerns.

You just could've said that you needed testers! :D
One reason why I am not bothered by so-called "pay-to-win", as done in SC, is that it is in fact realistic and immersive. In the real world, wealthy people can buy better equipment, and there is no reason to expect new SC characters should be uniformly poor. You certainly have more money than brains characters in the real world, so why not in SC? They cannot buy better skill, tough. As long as this "pay-to-win" is restricted to merely buying equipment and not directly affecting gameplay, I dont see how it diminishes my own enjoyment of the game.
The real world is a really, really ****ty game.  That Star Citizen is trying to mimic it by also being ****ty is not a point in its favor.

Also, your ship being better than the other guy's because you put money into it and he didn't definitely does directly affect gameplay.
