This wants moving to Games, but to answer your question - ED will play better in Bootcamp, then you can install ED:Horizons, which cannot be installed under macOS.I hope to play elite dangerous on my iMac. could someone advise which make joystick to use?
Development hasn't stopped, the Mac version continues to get Season 1 updates. It just won't get any of the Season 2 features (planetary landings, Engineering, ship-launched fighters, multicrew etc.)It's not worth buying for macOS because development has stopped. Mac gamers are now at a considerable disadvantage against other platforms because powerful in game features are not available.
Which really means it has stopped.Development hasn't stopped, the Mac version continues to get Season 1 updates. It just won't get any of the Season 2 features (planetary landings, Engineering, ship-launched fighters, multicrew etc.)
(Sorry to quote an old post, but felt it was important to point out).
Interesting point - a lot of the best players actually play with keyboard & mouse. Because the precision is greater with a mouse, plus in Flight-Assist-Off mode (the hard way of playing, with pseudo-Newtonian physics where the craft will keep on manoeuvring indefinitely unless you compensate in the opposite direction) using the mouse is easier than a joystick.I just bought Elite Dangerous via Steam, this is really useful. Trying to play it on a keyboard is impossible.
I've not used any other throttle before so I've got nothing to compare it with, but I'm happy with it. Slides smoothly, other buttons in good positions. The only slightly annoying thing is it the entire base can slide around on the desk a little sometimes.What is the throttle like?
