Show Notes

      • Development News
        • David Braben interviewed on the Cambridge Independent
        • PC Gamer interviews Dr. Kay Ross from Frontier in The mind-bending science behind the planets of Elite Dangerous
        • Gamescom Event – There is an Elite Meet at games com. In the DLC announced at Gamescom? Thread Ed got on the thread to dampen down expectation. He said they were only going to talk about new content coming in Beyond (Probably 3.2) , so no news about Elite Feet, Space Legs or any paid for DLC this season.
        • PAX West Community Event – We’re headed to PAX West in Seattle and we want to meet up with you to chat, enjoy free food, drinks and even more fun! We can’t wait to see you there! If you;-
          • Are available on Friday, August 31, 2018 from 8PM -12AM PDT;
          • And can make it to our venue at Melrose Market Studios in Seattle…
          • We’d love to invite you to our Frontier Community Meet! Spaces are limited so it will be first come first served!
        • Player Numbers – Brett C made an interesting point over the constant use of Steam Stats :-
          • It feels as if people are using Steam stats as the be-all-end-all argument that “Elite Dangerous is [dieing|dead|abandoned|on the death bed]”.
          • Unfortunately for those folks that are attempting to use Steam’s player count as ammo for the above… Steam stats only paint a very small picture of our actual player counts[b][c].
          • Elite Dangerous was not originally released on and locked to the Steam platform in 2014. It was made with our own client patcher, our own accounts system, our own developed systems. Completely split away from Steam. We do not force people to launch the game through Steam. At last check, players can download Elite Dangerous from Steam, and not have the Steam client running at all while playing Elite.
        • PS4 Issue – Reports of slow downs in the loading screens on the PS4. IF you have this issue Frontier recommends to do a PS4 reset ;-
          • Turn off the PS4 using the Turn off option not Rest mode. (r/http://manuals.playstation.net/document/gb/ps4/basic/power.html)
          • Disconnect the power cord from the machine.
          • Wait for 30 seconds and then plug everything back in and turn the power back on.
          • I hope this helps but if you continue to face issues, open a support ticket and we can investigate your connection to see if that may be facing issues.
      • In Game Events
        • Ed and Will go Thargoid Hunting
        • Anti Xeno Initiative – Dhanhopi was attacked this week, Bok was saved. New Targets confirmed as CW Ursae Majoris and Kamadhenu, both have NHSS and wrecked Megaships (useful for interceptors). There are interceptor-grade NHSS in CW Ursae Majoris, only scouts in Kamadhenu. Aegis ships are in both systems – be aware that if the target locations for Thargoid Massacre missions are in other systems they will not count to save the systems.
        • IDA – So, the summer is finally taking its toll. Having rushed Artemis in record time, Kamov Survey in HIP 17892 has been slower to repair. But, slowly and steady the stations is being brough back online. Now, if you’re in the area (or want to visit beautiful Pleiades), please pop by Kamov Survey with a load or two. Some amazing commanders.

Show Notes

  • Development News
  • In Game Events
    • Ed and Will go Thargoid Hunting
    • Anti Xeno Initiative – We failed completely last week. Both systems are burning. Anti Xeno Command asks all commanders to redouble their efforts, Ignore the Missions from the AEGIS Megaships and just hit the scouts in the systems of Dhanhopi – Plucker Enterprise (199 ls) and Bok – Landsteiner Orbital (931 ls).
      • If Dhanhopi falls, could Alioth be next? It’s only 28Ly away…
    • IDA – (Thanks to Factabulous for these) Summary: Artemis Lodge – completed, Operation IDA has moved, as the figures show, to Kamov. Cavalieri and Eyharts seem also to have reasonable support, with small contributions elsewhere. Parise (in Tembala) has turned up in the figures this week, expect more as the Thargoids continue their success in recent weeks.
    • PvP Fight Night on the Thursday the 2nd of August.
      Where: HR 1183 / Arc’s Faith in OPEN PLAYWhen: August 2nd 7:00 PST

      Allowed Ships:
      Diamondback Scout
      Cobra Mk. III and Mk. IV
      Viper Mk. III and Mk. IV
      Asp Scout
      Imperial Courier

      Rules:
      Outfitting: Can be done anywhere!
      Engineering: Is not a requirement but a HEAVY recommendation, especially hull from Selene Jean
      Guardian Weapons: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
      Buy location: Anywhere!

      Other notes:
      If you would like, you can sit far off to the side in ship with a fighter bay and be a resupply ship.
      You should also prepare to be harassed by xeno sympathizers. They have already heard about this event and they are probably rallying the troops as we speak.

      We may need ships in super cruise to watch out for those nasty Xeno allies and deal with them quickly and kindly. The day will also most likely be a mentoring day for our new commanders.

    • EDDI 3.0.1 released
      • EDDI is a Windows desktop program that can run either standalone or as a VoiceAttack plug-in. Actions like jumping to a new system, buying and selling commodities, entering a signal source, scanning a celestial object, and many more will trigger voice responses. EDDI uses the journal log and the Frontier companion API to obtain information and track your actions.When used as a VoiceAttack plug-in, the events that EDDI recognizes can be used to generate VA commands. For example, you can have VA automatically stow your landing gear when you undock.
      • 3.0.1 adds a much improved cargo monitor, localization support, and many fixes and improvements.
