You're probably right - all I really remember was the huge open green and blueish land areas, simpleish, single colour buildings and other crafts, and your own craft - when you saw it - looked sort of like a different version of a cross between an X-Wing from star wars, and some other simpler space crafts, but a bit simpler and flatter, and the only real details there were gray and black detail outlines, against a white body.

Maybe the name was something else that also started with the letters E l....who knows?

No that was another game. Elite was totally in space. I know what game you
mean though but I can't think for the life of me what it was called,
homeworld or something like that.

It was an old mid to late 80s sort of alien flight simulator game where you
flew around all over an alien planet, and you had to carry out various
missions varying between air and ground attacks, courier type missions, etc.

etc., and the main thing was the real 3D environment, on a huuuuge basis
since you were literally flying around all over the planet.

(here it gets called an open ended space exploration game)

Yeah I managed to complete that so quickly. Well do the 5 missions.
What
was
your favourite one? The thargoid station was so boring. But the documents
mission when you had to transport those military documents with regards to
the thargoid ships that was a difficult one. Because boy did you have to
kill a lot of those things and you couldn't missile them or energy bomb
them! If there was ever a hard mission I think that was it. For me that
was
the most difficult of them all. The cloaked ship was easy lol in
comparison
with facing 5 or 6 thargoids at once loaded with thargon drones. They were
the only things you could energy bomb.

I agree - Elite was amazing, and they also left out space quest -
while mentioning kings quest and police quest.
