So I just recently got this game and was wondering if anyone was interested in grouping up.

What does the game entail? Is it just a flight Sim or is there more to it?

It's LIKE Eve online but it really ISN'T Eve online. You travel the milky way galaxy in your own ship doing jobs, exploring, hunting down bounties, doing piracy etc..... And btw the Milky way is HUGE. It would literally take you days to travel from one end to the other. The best way I can describe it is that you're your own Han Solo with your own Millienium Falcon doing whatever the hell you want. Oh, factions, power struggles, civil unrest, and the whole story are affected by player actions on the whole.

btw can a mod edit the tags? I accidentally put "Elite Dangerous" and "Space games" as one tag. Thanks.

played for about 20 hours and had a lot of fun. though after getting he ship i wanted sceems like there is not much to do. they are however adding planet exploration in the next patch should add endless hours of things to keep me occupied. definatly worth checking out if your into space sims.

 

p.s. flying the ship alone will take you hours to master.

Mastering ship controls won't take you that long, however there is a rather steep learning curb but doing the tutorials (all my hate) will definitely go a long ways. Also I'm pretty sure the walking around part is part of a paid dlc they're planning to release in the near future. So did you fly alone or with a group? Because this game appears to be more fun when you're in a group (reason for the whole thread) than doing everything by yourself.

I agree. I've played a few hours now and had a blast but you tend to need a wingman for some situations. Add me on live: DummyParachute0. I won't be on as much as I'd like due to work but I'd be glad to lend a hand when I can

I'll take a look.  Though one question for me that can make or break my decision to buy Elite Dangerous is that does it have ship customization?

I played a heap load of this on the PC but on console it doesn't really work for me. Dunno maybe it's using a controller but it feels a bit weird.

It does take a bit of getting used to but once you get the hang of it, from what I've seen the control scheme is just as fluid as it is on pc.

Sort of... you have to earn color schemes and logos but everything else you can buy at starports. The only thing you can't change directly is the ship chassis but you can buy new ones if you save up enough.
