    Insofar as the original did, yes. You can pick up escape pods and sell them on. Some register as slaves, some as passengers. More science required here too.
    Yeah, it has gun-running and drug trafficking too... one of the missions I took last night was in a system where there has been so much revolutionary action, and guns are so prolific, that the price of Firearms per tonne is just 4.5Cr.

    I'm going to be rich, if I can survive going somewhere dirty enough and evade the police for long enough to sell them.

    Sold, then!

    One of my first Elite errors as a kid was buying some slaves at a bargain price then wandering into a system where they were outlawed and getting blown to bits by the space police...

    Hi MrTomFTW, just seen your message. ...."Keeps crashing too..." - Do you mean the game (Odyssey 3011) keeps crashing?. If so, I'd love to know more - then it might get fixed. Drop me a bug report here if you wish http://www.Odyssey3011.net/contact.html

    I bow to thee, Duncan.

    Many thanks for Odyssey 3011, a presumed labour of love that has already brought me hours of unmitigated joy.

    Tried it last night. You turn soooo slooooooowly and for some reason my crosshairs are way off centre, in the top left quarter of the screen. It is Elite though, brilliant :)
    "You turn soooo slooooooowly"... ahh you need to get your pitch thrusters upgraded

    "...for some reason my crosshairs are way off centre..." - sorry me bad. this is a known issue with some screen resolutions. They'll be a fix in the next 2-3wks (ish)

    Ironically I haven't had a crash since I wrote that :) But I will be happy to let you know about any future problems. Cheers for the good game Duncan!

    Just one alien artifact to get. It's the one from the terrorist mission which is causing me some problems. Even with my shiny new military laser, I still get swarmed after my first banzai, balls-out charge. More speed needed maybe so I can open a gap before pass two.

    Also survived my first detour to witch space (pre military laser) \0/

    Brilliant game, Duncan. I hope you are seeing the MSPs rolling in and can find time to keep extending it.

    Hire a shed load of mercs. Set them to all out attack, & let them get on with it. Watch the skies light up.

    Well I have 3 artifacts now. Those missions make you flush with cash. I've been upgrading away and my ship is no longer a piece of shit. What a game, it looks rough, it's unbalanced as hell (in that the very first mission I completed was a game changer money wise) but it's a lot of fun and scratches that Elite itch. Love it.

    Keep getting jumped by pirates when searching minerals in systems which apparently have minimal threat. One at a time I can deal with, but more than that and I'm screwed.

    Getting quite frustrated now, as I can seem to do anything without getting aggro and/or shot to pieces.

    Hire a merc or two. Set their stance to attack anything (bottom of your inflight options list). They will just hang around you, setting about anything that comes near you. You can hire them for just the one jump,or more.

    Running out of steam now. I've got all the artifacts, my ship is pretty much sorted, I can carve through an anarchy system like a hot knife through butter. Still only s fairly low rating though - capable, IIRC.

    It was a bloody good 240 points, though. Worth every one.

    This has made me hungry for a proper current / next gen space adventure / simulation, though.

    Mass Effect but more open like Elite and the X series and with their realtime / hands on flight / combat. Full freedom on foot when docked to pursue adventures, investigate things, assassinate people.

    Mass Effect * (Elite + X2) * Deus Ex = Happy Me.

    That's one of those 'this would be the best game ever' combinations, isn't it?

    Essentially what we need is Bioware's take on Privateer.

    "my crosshairs are way off centre, in the top left quarter of the screen"
    - I've just published an update with the intention of fixing this issue. It was however bit of guess as only have one TV. Can you let me know if this issue has been fixed (or otherwise). Many thanks in advance, Duncan

    I'm loving this game, I'm currently working my way through trading to buy upgrades and have just started doing the missions to get the artifacts. It seems I have much to experience reading this thread. :)

    Unlocked the achievement Exploring Uranus

    I gave up on this after I ended up with a crim rating of "terrorist". Can't go anywhere without having to fight police AND bandits.

    It got very repetitive (which Elite always was, to be fair) after I got the last artifact and I haven't touched it since. I definitely got my money's worth out of it, though.

    After finding out about this game I decided to buy it which meant moving my 360 downstairs to get to the router hooking and hooking up. After a ton of slow updates and getting the game I unplugged it all and took it back to my room to try out before going to sleep. I had no idea you had to be online to play indie games. Was looking forward to this bah. Ah well will move everything again tomorrow
