The first expansion is due out in a few weeks and opens up all the airless worlds in the galaxy for air and ground exploration. Looks like seamless transition between space and planet, with a brief loading screen while you jump into your buggy.

Full-scale Earthlike planet exploration is still very much on the to-do list but I have no idea how they're going to pull that off as it will involve the creation of thousands of individual, persistent, populated worlds.

Jumping back in after a few months and I like the new changes. There was a community goal a while back to build a space station way out in the Pleiades, and that station is now supplying rare stuff that you can bring to certain NPCs who will rebalance your ship systems to optimise them for combat, exploration or what have you. Cue lots of planetfall on uninhabited potatoes and digging through ancient craters for lumps of minerals to sell to players who want to bump their stats up. Everything's still being run by shitty old humans but they've got faces now (everyone looks middle aged and exhausted, much like the player base) and rumours of an ancient, malevolent alien civilisation are gathering in the background.

The NPC pilots have all had an AI makeover and they can use pip-juggling and flight assist the same as players, which has resulted in a tidal wave of whining and crying from all the grindy dorks who never learned to fly properly and are getting their top-of-the-line Federal Corvettes popped by mid-level NPCs in Viper 4s. Now if you get in a fight you have to pay Dark Souls levels of attention to what you're doing, only with three times the amount of controls to worry about.

The last updates were tailored to bring in the casual twitch shooters, which provoked a screaming ragefit, and this update is adding crafting to increase the number-crunching and combat difficulty, which has provoked a screaming ragefit. I like Elite because, despite it being a very dry, complicated and sedate galaxy simulator, everything it does provokes a screaming ragefit. It must be the most complained about game in history.
