Is anyone still playing?

I was a beta tester for ages and lost my way after the game officially started - wondering now if everyone is in pythons and it’s too late to restart

I've got Dangerous and Horizons, but its a while since I played, mainly because Windows 10 no longer has driver support for my Saitek X45 HOTAS. I can set it up as a generic joystick, but it often wipes out my bindings, and the game is a pig to set up. I did buy an XBOX controller to use with Train Simulator, and I could use that with more mouse & keyboard commands, but I haven't got around to it. I do miss playing it as it is still a great game.

Same problem.  I’m using a Thrustmaster 16000M stick with an X55 Rhino throttle and on my Windows 10 PC, the  game doesn’t detect them property.  Weird as it would on my old Windows 7 PC.  I get the “generic joystick” option that doesn’t differentiate between throttle and stick.

I saw it for INCREDIBLY cheap recently...still is? It was around eight bucks if I remember right. Which is hilarious as I want to say I remember the GH denizens diving in at...what was it, $120 when it came out?

I think I paid $50-$60US or something. That was way after release though.

I brought both it, and the expansion in Steam sales at very low prices, if memory serves, under £5 in both cases.

I think I was 50 - ironically the testing was in a very limited universe and my tiny ocd mind got used to the runs and the commodities - as soon as it went epic I floundered and then the whole surface landing, crafting, engineering stuff dropped in and that was it for me
