comment What's the difference between Solo and Multiplayer in Elite?
@DjangoReinhardt you can form a wing and go on a mission with them together (for instance to take on a really tough target). I think group missions are in the plan. Solo isn't really offline - you're always playing in the same world, so other players can deplete your trade route and your save appears to always be on their servers. The only difference between Solo and Open is whether other players appear in your current instance, and Open doesn't guarantee that they do (unless you form a wing).

comment What's the difference between Solo and Multiplayer in Elite?
@DjangoReinhardt er, just playing with other people. A lot of people on the forums have been asking for it to be like PvP/PvE in WoW (so you couldn't make progress in Solo and take it to Open - they'd need different saves and only Open progress would be 'legitimate') but David Braben has said that he's dead against that - he wants players to have free choice about whether they play on their own or with others. Personally I find Open really frustrating for any of the more 'grindy' activities (like rare trading) where you can get griefed, but missions are more fun in Open with friends.

@DjangoReinhardt yes, and some take great pleasure in doing so. Flying round certain busy systems can be a pain in open. Also note that bounties and combat bonds work differently as only the player that did the most damage gets it - this means firefights with lots of other players usually don't get you as much cash.

Of course you "can you fire chaff outside a fire group" on PC - this is specific to the xbone version

Cheers! So what are the benefits of 'Allied' over 'Friendly'?

@Timelord64 do you have a meta citation for that? If that's the case then shouldn't there be platform specific game tags?

comment Where do you find higher rated weapons?
Odd, but weapons have a class and I'm sure I've seen larger ones with more than one class. Is that not implemented yet or deliberate?

@Ben I've checked and this works x toggles the up/down movement in the galaxy map. This is the answer I needed, Cheers!
