    Elite is one of the best games I have EVER played. The scope is... incredible. I only bought it in May, and I've seriously dropped 1000 hours into it. And yeah, I jump from game to game too, but there's always Elite.

    Don't let the rumors of a steep curve turn you away. The community is AMAZING, and there are plenty of us here and elsewhere that will help you through the whole thing.

    Welcome aboard, Commanders! O7
    Did they ever add a SP mode?

    That's not how the game works, whether or not you interact with other players is up to you. You can go on your journey solo. This is excluding the pvp mode, of course. That being said, it is certainly possible for a player to come after you, especially if you're found carrying high value cargo but the odds of that happening are astronomically low. Sasha may have more insight on the subject.

    But to answer your question, I don't recall there being a sp mode

    If you play in solo, you will never encounter another player in game. All of the background simulation and powerplay is based on everyone playing. Also, carriers move across platforms. I took my carrier across the galaxy over the last month, and Xbox, PC, and PS players were all on board, even though we couldn't directly interact in game. (There's a Discord set up with channels fur each carrier of you register. )

    But yes, you can play all of it single player if you want to.

    So there is a "solo" mode?

    Hopefully, Code Vein gets a Windows stack. It was a game I enjoyed quite a lot, even despite all its problems and I only played it a month ago so I should be able to just blitz through it.
    Sleeping is for sensible people, which is why I don't do it.

    You can still see the system messages of other players on solo mode like in community goal or mining areas, but don’t see them, will those players see your message if you reply?

    At least those CQC sessions will start filling up again

    How far out from the bubble are you now? Beyond Sag A?
    You could just enter the black hole, or you got plenty of data to sell

    Yeah, Wreckfest! I kept inching closer to buying it as the price continued to come down, now I'll be able to give it a test drive and pick it up afterwards if I enjoy it enough.

    Ugh, pretty pissed tbh. Bought Wreckfest like 2 weeks ago when it was on sale. Not that it wasn't worth it or anything it was a pretty ok racer, but it always chaps my ass when something joins this close to me dropping cash on it...

    Yes, there's a solo mode, an open mode, and a private mode that you can play with people you choose. It's really the best of all worlds. Even if you see other chatter in the system, you won't actually encounter other players unless you choose to play open (or private).

    I don't know if they can read my messages because I usually ignore the trolls.

    We're back now. Sag A, Beagle, Colonia, home in about 2 and s half weeks. Had a blast, LOTS of exploration data. If anyone wants a quick exploration elite, that's totally how to go about it.

    Fair enough, I must not have noticed. Always played in "open" I suppose.

    I really don't understand why people are so obsessed with getting the Dirt 5 completion ASAP. It's going to have a bunch of DLC. It's your own fault if you obsessively grind it out immediately and then hate how boring that is. Like, do it when there's new content maybe?
