      And there's no reason to stop pleding for Kate Russell's book:

      That audio book would be reeeaally nice...

      We'll do an update early next week just to outline what will happen next and any other news.

      Does anyone know which 25 ships we'll get in the game? Are these based on the original designs, like the cobra etc., or will whole new designs be crafted?

      (Only partly joking...going through withdrawal here... ;))

      @Richard just explain that it will keep you out from under feet for at least 6 months as of march 2014...that'll keep her happy.

      Don't forget guys I've created a warm safe place for us to lurk in for the next year over at the Official ED Forums, its the Elite Dangerous Kickstarter Comments Continuation Thread (with edit buttons!) And can be found here:…

      @Richard Brown : You can tell that it's your money and you can spend it like you want :-)

      @izzy: and if it isn't, where's the link for telling my wife I spend £200 on a videogame? :)

    10. Peter Day on

      @Ronald. Same for me! :D

    11. Bifford the Youngest on

      @Michael - good luck with that! lol. Getting initial ideas is often the hardest part I think.

      Are we likely to get a new Dev update any time soon?? :)

    12. Ronald on

      Your payment to Elite: Dangerous has succeeded. =)

      Today I'm hoping I have time to start the prep work for the novel.

      Hey @Juan... it's a brand new day :)

    16. s4ingray on

      @Michael - Good morning!! Best morning in a long time. ;-)

    17. Dan on

      Morning's encouraging to see so many needing a KS fix like me....makes me feel all fuzzy Inside :-)

    18. Andre Czausov on

      Morning, UKers :)

    19. Bifford the Youngest on

      @Bifford - ah found it. "THE WINNER IS... CHRIS FORRESTER"

    20. Juan Rial on

      So Michael, has the dust settled a bit? Got time to breathe between answering questions now? ;)

    21. Dave Woods [Owner of the Daffy Duck] on

      @ Michael

      LOL.. Perhaps a hint of a back-up plan was shown then...

    22. Bifford the Youngest on

      Oh btw - who got Mr winter's prize place at the party??

    23. Peter Day on

      I am so excited that the funding goal has been reached! Not only did we make the original target, but also the stretch goals. So I'm looking forward to the new ships, and being able to play on my Mac!

      I am tempted to save all my annual leave from work and use it in March next year!

      Congratulations to everyone involved.

      Forgot I was signed in with my personal account :-) Back into my official guise now.


    25. Juan Rial on

      @Bifford: the money is already spent anyway. If you're not enjoying the game, continuing to play it will only add waste of time and effort on top of waste of money. ;)

      Damn didn't think of doing that

      So who has a new PC on the cards for 2014, or serious upgrading ?

    31. Jason S on

      Good morning Michael

    32. Bifford the Youngest on

      @Graeme - very well said. couldn't agree more! :) I think they did it like that because it was a complete overhaul from the first game and they were probably scared people would try to play it like The Witcher (I). hey ho. I'm certainly not going to waste my money by NOT playing at some point I will conquer the thing :D

    33. izzy on

      @michael : good morning :)

    34. Steffan Westcott ['Kull' on FD forum] on

      @Steffan - Same here. Email said "YOU FAILED!" so went to the link and it went through straight away.

    39. Bifford the Youngest on

      @graeme - I have been told by numerous people that "it is just the tutorial" that feels like that. once you get into the free-flow game it is apparently much better. However as I'm still to finish the tutorial (which is fecking huge...why does it need to be that long!?) it doesn't endear itself to me :}

      But then, a wife and one year old toddler doesn't help much with my gaming time....neither does the several websites I'm building/updating...LOL :D

    40. Steffan Westcott ['Kull' on FD forum] on

      Morning everyone :) Kickstarter payment processing seems shaky to me. I had my card refused last night, but I simply hit the "Pledge" button without changing any details, and the payment appeared to work.

    41. Juan Rial on

      @Donoghue: have them surgically removed from our index fingers so they can be reinserted into the keyboard?

    42. Juan Rial on

      @Bifford: done
