Has anybody taken a few hours and just tried to supercruise into the nebula?

It doesn't work that way. Systems are instanced so you can't actually supercruise between systems.

<DahBlount> So
<DahBlount> JAD2.2 is like that
<Axem> maybe
<Axem> it can be whatever you like!

Although if you're asking if anyone has tried to supercruise from one system to another, the answer is yes (you can actually reach the hyperspace waypoint, but you're still "in" the other system, so there's nothing there).

<Aesaar> literary criticism is vladimir putin

<MageKing17> "There's probably a reason the code is the way it is" is a very dangerous line of thought. :P
<MageKing17> Because the "reason" often turns out to be "nobody noticed it was wrong".
(the very next day)
<MageKing17> this ****ing code did it to me again
<MageKing17> "That doesn't really make sense to me, but I'll assume it was being done for a reason."
<MageKing17> **** ME
<MageKing17> THE REASON IS PEOPLE ARE STUPID
<MageKing17> ESPECIALLY ME

<MageKing17> God damn, I do not understand how this is breaking.
<MageKing17> Everything points to "this should work fine", and yet it's clearly not working.
<MjnMixael> 2 hours later... "God damn, how did this ever work at all?!"
(...)
<MageKing17> so
<MageKing17> more than two hours
<MageKing17> but once again we have reached the inevitable conclusion
<MageKing17> How did this code ever work in the first place!?

<@The_E> Welcome to OpenGL, where standards compliance is optional, and error reporting inconsistent

Reminds me of a story (not sure if true) I once heard about someone warping between systems.
While it's not instanced, systems are on separate nodes, so you aren't registered as being in another system until you jump into it all the same.
The Great War ended 30 years ago.
Our elders tell stories of a glorious civilization; of people with myths of humanity everlasting, who hurled themselves into the void of space with no fear.

I've heard that there are large areas of space outside the bubble hat are permit-locked, so that's probably what DahBlount has run into.

The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

Just got the A8 Thrusters for my Cutter.  They cost as much as a brand new Anaconda.

Pfft, you and your silly big ships.

Happily puttering around in my Viper Mk4, it's a lot better than I thought it would be. Still need to try the other new (small) ships too!

Some really fantastic terrain on some of these planets. e.g.



And yeah, I jumped down in an SRV. Landed with 2% hull left. :)

For me, the most fun I get out of the SRVs is taking pictures and mountain climbing:

So, I can see some of you have been playing Elite: Dangerous and saw this video using a THRUSTMASTER HOTAS WARTHOG.

My first question is, if your gonna play this game, would you suggest this controller?

Second, is there a better controller in your opinion?

There's a reason the Warthog costs over 450 USD, it's ****ing great. It's basically a consumer replica of the A-10 Warthog's flight stick and throttle with a few extra buttons on the base. I'd highly recommend it if you have the dosh to throw at it, but if not, the Thrustmaster T.Flight X HOTAS works very well.

In other news, I got back to the bubble today, earned 18 million credits and bought this bad boy:
