A (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1461411552/elite-dangerous)nyone else slightly excited by this?

I loved the original Elite but didn't really get to grips with the sequels, however, this looks like it could be time to dip my toes in the pirate waters again...

That would be another Kickstarter project I've backed (I take it you've heard of Oolite (http://www.oolite.org/) BTW). If you like that project you might also want to take a look at:

In the video David mentions that speeding up time won't be a feature but rather they are going for local hyperspace jumps to keep online gamers time in sync.
