So, what exactly is the endgame here, playing Elite Dangerous?


What are you without the sum of your parts?

So, what exactly is the endgame here, playing Elite Dangerous?

 

There isn't really an endgame, but I suppose achieving "elite" status for all three careers (combat, trade, explorer) might be considered one.

 

Speaking of which, I finally increased my trading rank this evening – from "penniless" to "peddler". :biggrin:

 

Owning the biggest ship – the Anaconda – might also be considered the ultimate goal. Also travelling to Sagittarius A – the supermassive blackhole at the centre of our galaxy –
is considered the ultimate exploration achievement.

 

But the game is essentially open-ended. The developers are continually expanding it and introducing new features.

 

Here are my rankings:

Thargoids...? :biggrin:

(for those who don't know, Thargoids were aliens featured in the original 1984 game. They haven't been witnessed yet in the 2015 game...).

That looks like a really long way from where I'm at?

I'm on the edge of inhabited space, so yes. :) Probably about 200 light years from you.

 

Still planning to visit the Pleiades nebula, but I want to buy a Detailed Surface Scanner before I go there.

Would be good to see how many credits you would get if you sold cartography info at Boswell Terminal off the nebula.

Btw, I see you've only posted cockpit views so far.

 

You can do external camera views by entering the debug mode:

 

Ctrl + Alt + Space, then move around with WASD/mouse to adjust view, then do the usual F10.

 

However, be careful when using the debug mode, as your ship is vulnerable.

A disastrous evening. My Cobra got interdicted and destroyed by an Elite-class NPC. I didn't stand a chance. He took my shields down almost instantly, then outmanoeuvred me at every turn, firing a whole cluster of beam lasers. I tried to escape, but my thrusters and frameshift drive got ripped to shreds... seconds later the canopy cracked... and boom.
