Is anyone still playing in 2018?

I had the opposite response. When I play EoC, I usually play the campaign right up to the point where I have access to the rest of the Badlands, and then I stop and just fly around doing my own thing. If I get bored I'll advance it to the point where all the Maas ships turn red and then stop again.
Elite's definitely got a way to go before it's a game, but it's shaping up to be just what I'm after. Of course, I'm the kind of person who will play the Traveller pen-and-paper RPG ( www.farfuture.net ) solo. So sandboxes are right up my alley.

I was finally able to get this beast working again by soldering a USB to Gameport adapter, especially made for the FF Pro. Hooray!
Now I just need to find a case for this thing.
Space. The final frontier.
However, apparently it's out of stock on this website (but still available over Alibaba), and I found one review that states it's good. I asked the German c't magazine if they can review it. If they do that and the printer turns out to be good, it will be mine, as 200 € is what I'm ready to shell for such a thing.
