Watched the video and man does that thing need some life to it, hope some traffic is added to it. Trucks going from building to building in the port, other ships landing and taking off, etc. Needs something like that right now. I understand it's a sneak peak and an in development build though so could be added later. Might be something they're working out the bugs to and it'll be added soon. Other then that, the port looks neat, nice and big with room for some exploring, and driving controls look like fun!

Horizons needs to show off some more stuff before I consider picking it up. Landing and driving around is a neat idea but without a real reason at the moment it's just another starport to me. I know they've said they're adding some missions and scavenging bits to it and some other things but I want to see it in action. $60 is a lot for just planet landing. I know they'll keep adding stuff to it but I might have to wait until then to make it worth it to me.

That's quite fair. 

I'm honestly at the point where I know I'm going to be playing more Elite:Dangerous next year in the future anyway, so I might as well pick up Horizons while it's $15 off and comes with a new ship, rather than waiting until it proves itself and paying $60 then.

If I was in the position of "Horizons needs to prove to me why I would still play this game in 2016" no I'm there with you.  Planetary Landings alone have yet to prove themselves to be content worth paying for.  If we were getting air-based worlds with lifeforms to see, or the massive urban centers of the colonized worlds, that'd be different.  I'd love to see fields of Diso Ma Corn being grown, or see how beautiful an Imperial city illuminated by Achenar's blue star at night would look, but those aren't in the game, and without them it's sorta :/

So yeah, I totally get what you're saying.  Here's hoping they do something to make the place feel more lively by the time the game comes out.

Here's a pair of videos from David Braben showing off the approach of a planetoid, in this case Europa from space, leading into orbital cruise, and then into the surface itself and eventually landing at a space port and getting in his SRV.

The third video is him driving up steep hills in Europa, showing off the SRV's all-terrain capability.

Today Elite:Dangerous Community Manager Edward Lewis (aka "CMDR The Galactic Intern") joined the Hutton Orbital Truckers on a massive convoy.  The group sorta RP'd a new community event that tasked them with running glue to repair damaged mugs.  The route was over 20 jumps long and featured many CMDRs along for the ride including members of Dark Echo, an anti-pirate PvP group, for escort and the Fuel Rats in case rescues were needed.  It does not take long into this broadcast for the CODE to show up and start trying to spoil Ed's fun.  IMO this is the most fun of these live streams so far both for how intense it gets and how many players from all over the community get involved all at once.

The fun begins at about 7min in, first jump at about 17minutes.

I'd love to see fields of Diso Ma Corn being grown

You're damn right.  Who wouldn't?  Ain't no corn like sweet, sweet Diso ma corn.

Personally I'm waiting for the Elite: Dangerous - Ma Corn of Diso expansion.

So Elite videos.

First, Today's "Educating Ed" has him meet up with the Buckyball Racing Club.  Unlike the Elite Racers, this is about racing from star systems and making long distance runs.  The video includes some tips about trimming your time off of station landings.  Ed has a position on the leaderboard of their current race, giving the community a chance to run against him.

Next up, Isinona is doing bounty stakeouts in an anarchy system in his new Vulture.

Finally, they'll be planning a Blind Auction for charity details for which are can be found in this forum post. Items for bid including naming your own station, your own unique paint job, lifetime sub, etc.  Furthermore they are also planning a 24 hour Charity Christmas live stream on December 21st/22nd. This includes raffles where each pound donated (reminder, Frontier is British) gets you a raffle entry for numerous prizes including a PC, an XBO, and copies of Horizons and other merch.

They also said there will be a Live Stream next week Tuesday when Horizons drops, but I don't have details on that.

Someone in the Horizons beta found a Monolith.  This is most likely a planet surface rendering bug, but for now it looks like something out of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
