I tried everything, included "none" - that was the first I tried - but it was all rejected.

And THAT THING should be the current interpretation of the Courier?
NO. WAY.
Speaking of the Imperial Courier, some time ago I tried to draw a personal version of this vessel (always inspired at the Frontier - Elite 2 original version), that should have a central role in a science fiction novel I'm writing.

Here a rough sketch of this vessel. Main modifications: the nacelle pylons aren't anymore deployable but fixed, with a wing profile; the engine nacelles are now aligned with the CoG of the spacecraft, fixing the main problem of the original Courier. Overall dimensions are a bit larger.

I don't have pictures because I had to go to work, but I discovered several new planets out by the Veil Nebula last night!

"Elite Dangerous: Horizons" is now available as a "Season Pass" DLC for "Elite Dangerous":
http://store.steampowered.com/app/441340/


The earlier available "Elite Dangerous: Horizons" (AppID 419270) isn't being sold as a separate game anymore.
It has been removed completely from Steam and previous owners got instead "Elite Dangerous" game and "Elite Dangerous: Horizons Season Pass" DLC added in their Steam subscription package (https://steamdb.info/sub/84983/apps/).

Too late.

David screwed up with this one. You buy Elite and then have to pay full price for what is early access DLC. No thanks. I'm quite annoyed at Frontier over this.

This does seem a very questionable decision...

I don't know, I think they deserve at least a little bit of credit for recognizing that they screwed up and fixing it.

And hey, as a bonus, they've gotten rid of all the negative reviews on the standalone horizons game!

What do you mean, fixing it? Before, if you didn't have Elite dangerous yet, you could just buy Horizons as a new full-priced game, there you go.

Now you have to buy elite first, and still pay full price for the season pass. How's that fixing anything?

Uh...no, you don't have to pay "full price" for the season pass?

Before:
Elite Dangerous: Horizons was $59.99 on Steam

Now:
Elite Dangerous: Horizons Season Pass is $37.99 on Steam
Elite Dangerous: Deluxe Edition (includes base game, horizons seasons pass, and a "pilot starter pack") is $59.99 on Steam

So if you're coming from nothing, just grab the Deluxe Edition. You're better off than you were before, since you didn't get the pilot starter pack.
If you're coming from the base game, grab the Season Pass, and you're at least $23 better off than you were before, more so on sales.

Ah... the recent switch from dollars to swiss franks confused me, because basically it meant that the more expensive stuff got more expensive. So basically I'm paying the same price for the season pass now that they adapted to swiss price, as I did for the full game before when I could have bought it in dollars (no, it's not an exchange rate thingy - Stuff is more expensive on Swiss steam than it was on US steam now that Swiss steam has been introduced, simple as that).

That blows.

Obvious solution is to use a US proxy and convince Steam that you're in the US...

Alternately, just plan a trip to the US once a year during the biggest Steam sale and do all your purchases then. If you buy enough games, you could come out on top, right?

I think you would have to buy the whole catalog just to break even.

Don't go to Alpha Centauri's Hutton's Orbital

It actually orbits Proxima so you have to cover 0.22 lightyear using supercruise instead of jump.

IIRC at one point there was a community goal to ship something (my brain says mugs for some reason) to Hutton.

...

Ah yes. Mugs. (sort of)
