Well I wanted to ... but did not find the time :/ life is just to crazy at the moment for me, so I'm in a kind of game pause mode

I know that feeling mate. I don't really have all that much time either, but with the £10 discount on the Horizons season pass, and what is touted for release soon, I picked it up anyway

I haven't even had chance to boot it up since I upgraded, but I'll be on and off when I can.

Just for me (since I did not follow at all) I picked up Horizon on discount way back (and did not even boot that up once ... so no experience with the ground action etc.) But what is the season pass? What features will that include?

Season pass includes the remaining expansions:

I had my first planetary landing experience the other night. Added a hangar and SCV to my Cobra MK3 and just landed on one of planets in the system I was in last time I played.

It was great!

Going from super cruise, to orbit, to glide to finally landing is seemless. Once you've landed, and are out in your SCV, you can send your ship off to orbit (AI controlled). It's so cool seeing your ship just take off without you controlling it. Not sure why, but I like it

I looked around and found a downed ship, the wreckage guarded by a couple of skimmers. Killed them off (they were wanted, so I got 1K bounty for each of the three) and then scanned the data node next to the crashed ship. Got a intel package for my troubles. No idea what to do with it though.

Then, I called my ship back. I watched it enter atmosphere, and land just over the other side of a hill I was driving towards,, which was cool. Got back to my ship, docked, and got back to deep space.

Was a great first experience. Feels much more of a space game than SC does at this point too, which should make CIG pull their fingers out.

If you've not seen the planetary landing video for SC then it looks very nice.
The data from the Node can be sold at Stations etc,

Cheers Gav. I'll take a look later. Got my first upgrade from the basic levels, upgraded my trader level to whatever the second tier is called

Bought myself a Planetary Analysis Scanner so I can work on my exporation levels, and make some money while I haul stuff. 

My Cobra MKIII is multirole right now. Might upgrade to a MKIV, but no idea where they're sold.

I'm still playing. Well I played ELite in the 80's so I guess I'm a liver anyway.
Besides I'm Alpha backer so I have a livetime pass. Haven't seen any Thanroids or landing on planets with atmo, so big things on the horizon (pun intended).
