Elite Dangerous: Diamondback Scout

Diamondback Scout is a nimble and affordable ship bounty hunting, and it has an excellent jump range.

Elite Dangerous: Cobra Mk. III

 

Cobra Mk. III is a well rounded ship, but I like the more specialized ships. Diamondback Scout has better turret placement and Type-6 can haul more tonnage so I ended up fitting the Cobra as planetary explorer while saving money for Asp.

Elite Dangerous: Hauler

The trusty Hauler brought in the money for a Cobra Mk. III. Then I sold it.

Runner Up of the Year: Elite Dangerous

I first tried Elite Dangerous when it was still in the game preview on Xbox One. I did a bit of exploring and tried combat missions and hauling but did not find it interesting enough to continue. Recently I got back to the game and even bought the Horizons expansion.

I have not played a space sim since Independence War II: Edge of Chaos. Elite requires a lot of time to get into and grinding for credits can be tedious. The combat mechanics and exploration are fun enough and flying around in super cruise on kind of a soothing experience.

The real depth of Elite appears to originate from the community. For example, there are subreddits for coordinating the powerplay, which is fairly dull as a game mechanic, and community events like the Christmas carriers convoy. And of course, the game has superb opportunities for taking pretty screenshots.

I definitely want to invest more time to Elite Dangerous. Most likely it will not be my most played game for the next year, but I am looking forward to getting some material for screenshot posts.
