I wanted to see what you all thought of the progress made thus far. I personally and very happy with the update, while buggy at times it's really a much better "game" now than it was in 2.x and for that I'm happy.
So far the biggest game change for me has been figuring out the economy and the trading posts. Learning where to buy and sell make the biggest differences. Prior to 3.0 I spent most of my time hunting for "pirates" or doing the emergency beacons and flying combat role. Now I can honestly say if I'm playing I'm looking for a way to make money. While I am getting a little restless with there only being a part of the galaxy open it's still much more than what was previously available. I cant wait for the day that I can get in my ship and put in a route of stops where I can buy and sell and make money while on my way to an entirely new system in space, even if it literally takes a week! What are your thoughts? What do you think so far?
