Xbox Live is not owned as of this post.

Not sure if I'm misunderstanding here, but how are you even able to play the game if you don't have XBLive?  I thought it was not possible to play the game at all without it?

So, when booting up the game, after answering the prompt of "What user is this", it loads a screen that shows Xbox live. You can eventually reach a screen where you can press a button to continue without Xbox Live. This only works for games where Solo is possible. Since I am not running Xbox Live, I am stuck in Solo mode right now. It is still possible to play, you just can't play with other people.

Thanks for clarifying, I had no idea that was an option. Good to know

Doubled the Tower White Pigment drop chance and reduced the Pigment quantity to 5.

What is this supposed to achieve? some sort of feel good measure under the pretense that some progress can be made? increase the drop chance but REDUCE the quantity?  I hope that's not how DE gives you all "raises".  "Here, I'll pay you twice as often but half as much - don't you feel so much richer now?"

I had previously simply stopped doing Tower white because the horrendous farming, but with the combination of a drop chance booster as a login reward plus this change I figured some progress could be made.  Nope. 

45 minutes of brainless running in circles from spawn point to spawn point resulted in 30 pigments (out of 900 needed).

It is this kind of grind (actually specifically Tower White) that convinced me to NEVER purchase a doubler for farming resources as I absolutely refuse to reward DE for this. 

If the 45 minutes with a doubler had resulted in 200 pigments, or if the total required had perhaps been 90 instead of 900, I would have happily spent the plat to cut 4-8 hours of grind in half.  But to reduce a 40-90 hour grind to 20-40 hours? Of absolute boredom running around killing an infrequent and inconsequential bird that has nothing interesting? yeah eff that.

Thank you so much for this! The sacrifice was top class - I think I love Ballas ❤️

Also I was finally able to sell most of my mods thanks to the pop up select all function which now stays on screen to deduct a few to keep for each one. I think I sold around 16k mods for 5 million credits gg

I still have the “your network has been lost, you will return to main menu” problem and it’s is getting on my nerves.

Same here. It's been bad because I can't play the game the last couple days because of this. Keeps losing connection.

I have spent this week with [DE] Nate following is magical tips to solve the problem:

  • Tip 1: Upgrade console software at last available firmware (Console firmware update are mandatory, maybe he dont know) - PROBLEM NOT SOLVED !!!
  • Tip 2: Change DNS servers to Google DNS (🙄) - PROBLEM NOT SOLVED !!!
  • Tip 3: With a mystical inspiration he said "the problem is your modem!" and suggested to add some PC (im on Xbox One/Xbox Live) related ports to my port forwarding configuration - PROBLEM NOT SOLVED !!!
