      • The general response to Horizons has been mixed at best with a lot of negative press and reviews. What needs to done to change this perception?
        “In summary; Horizons adds no meaningful content to the game, built on the dubious and hollow promise that it’ll be worth the $60 by December 2016. Frontier is financially incentivized not to deliver, and cannot be held accountable until the next paid expansion cycle, when the game will definitely perish forever. Christ, I hope I’m wrong. I so, so want to be wrong.It breaks my heart, but you should pass on this. Instead, consider purchasing the base game for the world’s best deep-space exploration simulator experience, priced at a very reasonable $30.” http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197979999790/recommended/419270/)

  1. Just wanted to comment on that guy who lost his anaconda… No, the game doesn’t treat you differently based on your rank. The NPC spawns are based on the BGS, not your rank. The only thing that will change based indirectly on your rank, is the NPCs spawned by missions, since mission difficulty is, indeed, based on your rank.
