Elite Streamer Cmdr Plater (That’s Joe Plater for all those that), has been made a patron of the Thyriod Cancer Charity who has managed to raise so much money for using a 24 hour Elite Stream.
Operation Ida is holding it’s 2nd Annual HAULiday Haul which commemorates the 2 year of the initial attacks by Thargoids in 3303 & the 2nd Thargoid/Human War as well as our origin as a group. We’ll be fundraising for the cancer Research Institute and holding events during the 4 weeks of the Hauliday Haul including a one day station repair, convoys, races etc. last years Haul was a lot of fun and we were able to get the word out regarding what we do to the community, engage people in various activities and even raised over $1100 as well.
The Christmas Carriers Convoy is having it’s 4th Christmas Convoy with the goal to create comfort for the colonists of Colonia by bringing gifts from the bubble, and some drugs. Actually, mainly drugs. Well, my ship anyway. Actually, my ship is full of nothing other than drugs, the finest onionhead (of both varieties) that money can buy.
We launch on the 1st of December, which has become the tradition, and arrive on the 24th in Centralis. Right now we’ve got about 100 signups on EDSM. Waypoints have been chosen to kind of describe a 4 on the galaxy map, and take in some attractive sights along the way. There’s racing events and SRV-ball (I’m not entirely sure what SRV-ball is, but no doubt some SRVs will be harmed in the process) planned on the way.
It’s organised by the SOTP (Shadow of the Phoenix) in association with the CCN (Colonia Citizens Network). Launch system is Karbon (with a K)
It is when a Red Super Giant essentially swallows a Neutron Star, so that the Neutron Star resides within the Red Super Giant
This is possible because the Red Super Giant is REALLLLY BIG i.e. if we had one in Sol, it would expand out past Jupiter!!! Neutron Stars are tiny (The size of a city) and really rather dense. So the Neutron just ‘plops’ into the Star and doesn’t really give a damn 🙂
HIP 108876 may be one in the game, but so much is speculative!
What is the one thing you would have designed differently in Elite Dangerous? – Send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
“A new release for the group’s Elite Dangerous sci-fi simulation game is also planned for 2021.”
“Hey Commanders, we just wanted to take a moment to reassure you all that the 2020 update isn’t delayed and still on track for release. The article referred to in the OP is discussing the 2021 financial year. We hope this helps clear the situation up for you!”
Would you have preferred it to exclusively sign up for Either the Federation or the Empire? By the time our next episode is released, the event will be over, so what did you think and what did you think they could do to improve on?
Were were asked if there is going to be a fourth season of Escape Velocity. Chris has confirmed that it is in development but there’s nothing to say just yet.
Next month Operation Ida is holding it’s 2nd Annual HAULiday Haul which commemorates the 2 year of the initial attacks by Thargoids in 3303 & the 2nd Thargoid/Human War as well as our origin as a group.

Frontier Close EEE “I wanted to take this opportunity to give you an update on what is happening with EEE; as you all know, we’ve not been able to provide much support to the EEE system since the start of the year. Originally, our vision for EEE was to have a server set up to bring groups together with Frontier to support your events and activities. After I took over, its original focus shifted slightly. And toward the start of this year, when I announced that we will not be able to carry on the monthly meetings, I spoke of revamping and redesigning EEE. As a team, we’re taking a wider look at all of projects, and as we manage multiple projects, I want to ensure that anything we run is given the care and attention it deserves. As this is not something I’m able to promise with EEE at the current time, rather than continue to keep it open, I will be closing EEE. It’s worth mentioning that supporting our player groups (and Squadrons) is something we obviously still care very strongly about and the community team are available. You can still contact us if you need our support, have an awesome ideas to share or need assistance. I’d like to also take the opportunity to thank each and every one of you who contributed here, be that in the form of our monthly meetings, discussions with the devs, feedback sharing sessions or when we just had randomly chatted about something. While EEE will be closed, we’re still contactable, and I implore you to reach out to myself, Paige (PaigeHarveyFDEV#9598) and Stephen (TheBenedetti#0835) whenever you wish!”
Shoutout for the new Buckyball Race. “Lava Loop” starts this Saturday (Nov 16th) and runs until the following Sunday (Nov 24th). Race starts and finishes at Conway City in LTT 4961 and requires competitors to visit five outposts, all in close orbit around lava worlds.
Paige is Back on Monday. It was implied that there are more than one Interstellar Initiative planned for the future
Do we need something to Aspire to?
What things in game can we (do we) aspire to?
What other things should we aspire to?
Some people aspire to have 100% “Achievements”. Should these be a thing (for the PC version) What would we like to see? Why do we think they’ve not been added, since they’re already there for PS4 and XB1
Multivex [AEDC]: I’d be fine with generic stuff. Kill 10 players, reach beagle point. I’d like some bgs ones but i don’t really see how they would do that since there aren’t any direct links between a player and faction…maybe do X amount of missions or hand in 100 million in bounties
Looks like we finally have a new store web front at https://dlc.elitedangerous.com. Nothing official has been announced by Frontier yet, so I’m guessing it’s in a Beta stage. But your ARXs are available there. If you what to know how much things cost, remember £1 gets you between 1672 and 2222 ARX and $1 gets you between 1250 and 1667 dependant on the package you buy. (Thanks to Ben)
A coherent Buildup and Plot, including a story from 3 years ago.
Four CGs over three and a half weeks.
No Unique Event Gameplay.
Overall I would have given this a C+ / B-. The initial slow build up using Galnet News and the BGS was good. However, there were people who would have supported the Onion Headers, due the Federation’s tactics in the previous storyline, so a competitive community goal might have spiced things up a bit and there was a lack of a dynamic event (like the evacuation of Palin’s Base and defence of his mega ship) which would probably deflected a lot of the criticism.
In-Game Events – what’s happened this week?
Truckers Rescued from the Devilish Don, despite the loss of Will Flanigan. 😉
CMDR Ventura_: Hi everyone , had a thought while catching up with the CQC episode of lave Radio… If Fdev put the high ranked players on a scoreboard, would that not entice more ppl to play CQC to beat the top player? Your thoughts?
CMDR Cortex-Vertex answered the community question on CQC. He suggests that CQC should be like a holographic video game (According to Premonition, it already is), which is available from the Station Dock Menu (or it might be a cabinet in the bar when space legs come in). Thanks Andy Spen
Kirk Marshal wants to know why we don’t have Gankers on as Guests. CMDR Spawnsworth. He wasn’t to know why they do it, How they do it, Do they target certain people, if so , why?
CMDR Bolloxim on Discord says: Interesting podcast this week. The announcement that frontier is spending time on bug fixes is likely a smoke filled cloud of misdirection. Usually when running a policy of bug fixes the cadence should be push them live as soon as possible or, if the beta servers are up, continually pushing weekly bug fixes. That they announced a 3-4 month release of bug fixes feels really wrong on this score, especially with an active beta community, if it’s in full swing. Something else that @Shan touched on. There is a new massive release coming in a year. Usual development practices would mean that branch of code should sit off of master. Bug fixes usually on fix branches integrated into master. Releases would be tagged/branched from master. I wonder though if all this activity on master will impact current 2020 development. Or if as some of you guys mentioned that its a new refactored codebase then this would be more pr stunts, that these fixes are bandaids for a year. There is one other alternative. The underlying code has been refactored and updated and it integrated the arx. That September release was more than just arx but foundational changes preparing the way for 2020. However I doubt this is the case, but, considering how much was touched some even not involving arx it’s a possibility.
Loose Screws Podcast claimed to have trucked out all of our Biowaste from Lave. Can we just say, never underestimate the amount of poo we can create. We are the third highest producer of quality waste products in the Galaxy behind whatever is in Cubical 3 at Hutton Orbital and Slough! (Taking cover from the Hammers of Slough now!!)
