Something’s missing in the new Screenshots thread: space sim screenshots.
Not to worry, I’ve been snapping away in Elite. And yes, I have posted a few of these in the main thread, but seeing as they’re awesome, I see no reason not to also post them here.
Say what you will about Elite, every once in a while it makes your jaw drop. That little blob of metal in the foreground is one of the largest playable ships in the game, by the way.
At least the Thargoid picked a nice spot to crash-land.
This one wasn’t so considerate, but the site is pretty impressive regardless.
The Pleiades cluster does offer some stunning natural sights, too. The Taygeta system is my favourite thus far.
But the core bubble holds up quite well, too, especially when thing line up just right. Leesti has always been a rather nice looking system.
Oh, and the Imperial Clipper is still a beautiful ship.
