    Just picked up my first two voice packs, Midnight and Vasco. Sometime in the near future I will be adding ASTRA, Kate and one other (which I am not yet sure, but leaning towards DARK). Toying with the packs now (thanks again for the tutorials on your youtube channel Paul) and very much looking forward to playtesting them in game. And perhaps entertaining my five year old daughter as I have conversations with the computer.

    Just wanted to add that I have been a long time user of the HCS Voice Packs for Elite Dangerous and very happy with them too. Today I had a small problem when trying to update to 1.6.6 that I couldn't resolve myself, so I sent a message to the HCS support. Within minutes I had the solution sent back, I needed to update my own Voice Attack software and then everything worked great. I was very impressed with the excellent and speedy service support, thank you.

    Hope the migraine goes away, I know how bad and annoying they can be.

    And yeah, it took me about 3 hours to *completely* re do everything from scratch, but then again I did also change a few things up on my end (breaking out the Personal Pack and Trade route from the voice pack into their own dedicated profiles)
    Extra special thanks for the updated beta profile switcher to include the most recent packs (I had set up some myself previously while I was waiting this update) and it took me mere minutes to get it all sorted (and I have the correct sounds for Minus and Vasco being called to the bridge )
    Not a problem, although to be fair I was also having fun coming up with funny responses to summoning one AI or another to the bridge. Using a combination of "Are you sure" (ASTRA) and "Intruder detected" (Leo) helped spice up the variety myself.

    I am glad that my profile switcher idea works out (although Fade did quite possibly the essential part of the beta profile part)

    [/quote]Keep up with the great work guys, I will certainly be buying even more packs in the future [/QUOTE]
    Always a pleasure

    We have the beta profile which includes tab switching/more advanced UI interactions with the panels.

    In the basic profile we have Comms/Navigation/Radar panel quick selections, but nothing for the sub panels, but that is because we feel that they would be better suited for the beta profile (which has a lot more of the panel tracking needed to make it work).

    And even then, in the beta profile, it is setup to properly work with 100% voice interaction, far more than someone would quite possibly like for a basic profile.

    Astra could use more content in my opinion. Maybe historic space missions, probes, satellites, launches, and things like that? Also maybe things like math, cryptography, and physics.

    Also, I wouldn't mind seeing some more voice packs with a bit of off colorness to them. Maybe an off color smartass, not as extreme as KsAI, not as evil as DORIS, but kind of a middle ground between Venus, DORIS, and KsAI, preferably a female voice.

Lots of her responses are often to loud, using stereo then mono, to quiet..etc. Very inconsistent and sometimes can detract from the amazing experience of this pack. Other packs don't have those issues, they're all very good! I bought Jazz, DORIS and Venus and they're all amazing and consistent. I wish it was the same for ASTRA. I also understand how insanely long it would be to re-do ASTRA correctly, so it's not a huge deal.
    Don't worry, she will be redone.

    I bought Astra, then the personal pack, and then Leo. The HCS packs revolutionize Elite: Dangerous. I cannot recommend them enough.

    I had the privilege of exchanging emails with Paul Watson, the developer for these packs. I found him to be exceedingly prompt, professional, and attentive. The level of personal service is exemplary.

    I've gone from the 'vanilla' Astra program, to now having Leo in charge of weapons and navigation. With a few easy hours of programming my ship's AI now argues with itself when handing over systems, dumping cargo, etc. I have Dave the dog in there as well. The hilarity is immense.

    If you're not flying with an HCS voice pack, do yourself a huge favor and pick one (or several) up. They're great fun, easy to implement, and make E: D a whole new experience.

    I am absolutely in love with the ASTRA voice pack, it seriously adds to the game, so much so that I'm playing it more now than I did before.
    Thank you so much Paul, you're awesome, keep up the good work.

    P.S
    My master pack pls!

    I purchased Elite Dangerous a few weeks ago then found out about Voice Attack and these Voice Packs.

    Much Kudos to you guys that put these packs together, takes to game, for me personally, to a whole new level of immersion!! Started out with Astra, then yesterday, being an oldie and Red Dwarf fan, seeing the Norman Lovett (LEO) pack, im sure i said "WOW" a bit too loud, cue the odd looks from my family, I just had to buy it!

    After a few teething issues setting up and profile switching, im now in my private heaven when the family aren't around to point and laugh at the man talking to his game

    Just want to say a huge thanks for the quick responses on the Tech Support forum from Gangrel too!

    Right, im going to stop there, before i turn into, i think what the youngsters call, a fan-boy

With that in mind i decided to dive in the deep end and purchase the personalization pack and oh man do i NOT regret that decision. Having ASTRA named something i chose as well as having her refer to me as my gamertag has just made the whole experience that much more immersive. Definitely worth the extra money. My pack was also sent to me in less than 24 hours! SUPER happy with the turn around time and quality of your work. I look forward to seeing any improvements you have for the future of those program and know that you've earnt yourself one HAPPY customer.

    Thumbs up!

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Keep on eye out for other voice packs that are coming (or have already come out). They might not have the range of knowledge of ASTRA (although DARK and Venus are getting close) nor have the personal touch options (shame really), but they do also have their own personal quirks.

    I like Leo, even if he thinks that I look strange in my flight suit.

    Ze... I threaten to use him as a toaster... he is about as much use as a chocolate one >.>

    Ever since I was a little kid, I dreamed of a game like Frontier Elite 2, but in an expansive, massive world, with fantastic visuals. Elite Dangerous was that dream-game. Though, I never thought it would get more immersive and amazing than it already was. Boy was I so wrong.

    I picked up Astra and the personal responses 2-ish days ago. I was loving Astra, and now that I have my personal responses, I'm loving Astra even more! I love it dearly, and I couldn't imagine playing Elite without Voice Attack and Astra now. This is a wonderful addition to the game, and it really adds to the experience of playing Elite.
