Thanks for all the replies. Looks like I've got 3 options:

1. Go for Freelancer - which I have read a few bad reviews about (limited number of ships you can buy being the worst criticism)
2. Invest the time in Eve
3. Make my own :-)

Amazon are selling Freelancer for a fiver, so I think I'll give it a try.

Yeah the tutorial of EVE-Online can be abit much, ALOT have changed since I started up early 2004.. back then the tutorial was something like.

Fly out to a asteroid, use your basic miner try that on the asteroid.
Lock at that drone flying around you, shoot it with your basic gunner.
Warp to station, dock, sell your ore

Thank you, you now can enjoy your game :-)

And then I undocked, shot the Police... got killed by the police, undocking with a brand new ship, get killed by the police who is now camping the station I where in, third time I get killed by the police I starts to think I might have broken my game !!! 8-)

I start a new account, played for 3 years so far.. never really regreted doing so.

But yeah I have heard the new tutorial is like several hours long !!! hehe, then again... it can be useful unless you like to learn things the hard way like I have done.

I can't believe I almost gave up on Eve. I signed up for another 14 day trial yesteday, reinstalled Boot Camp on my Mac so I can run Windows, installed Eve, and forced myself to work through the tutorial. And you know what? It's really not that complicated. I love it :-)

I just wish it ran under Mac OSX, as I have had to install Windows just for this game. There is an online petition to have Eve ported to Mac OSX. Please, if you play this game and want to see it on OSX, take a few moments to sign the pettion.

Linkage has occurred

Thanks to those who encouraged me to stick with Eve - see you in space :-)
