I might have to dig into it again. I tried it on the CV1 with my HOTAS and it worked pretty well! The problem for me is the gameplay gets overwhelming pretty quickly - essentially when I start using the galaxy map. I wish it was a bit more multiplayer friendly. I feel like the one time a few of us met up in Elite, it took about an hour to find each other and make sure we were in the same instance lol.

I have been under the impression that there is only one instance. The galaxy map has caused me problems too, mostly on the selection side. I can't seem to be able to select stars without typing them in the search box. The game is awesome though, so I'm getting through that.

In order to be in someone's instance, you have to create or join a private party before you even load into the game. Otherwise there's no guarantee. That's how it used to be, anyway.
