        Follow clues to help track down and recover a stolen data core:

        “LHS 3262 Solutions has reported the theft of a valuable experimental data core. The core, which has been in development for some time, has been described as being “of great importance” to LHS 3262 Solutions, and a generous reward has been offered for its safe return. The precise location of the thieves is not known and Security services in the LHS 3262 system, where LHS 3262 Solutions is based, have been unable to track the thieves, but they have determined that the criminals recently visited three systems: Eleu, Pijan and Baris.

        LHS 3262 Solutions has stressed that the core must be recovered soon, before it degrades and becomes unusable and are offering a rich reward for the first pilot to return the item to their facility at Whitworth Park on Akan.”

        As an additional reward the pilot that returns with the data core will also be awarded a special code to obtain a new ship paintjob of their choice.

        Find the Stolen Data Core
        LHS 3262, Whiworth Park on Akan – search for clues to recover the stolen data core.

        Happy Hunting Commanders!

        As an additional reward the pilot that returns with the data core will also be awarded a special code to obtain a new ship paint job of their choice.

    • Lave Exploration Data CG
      In other news Exploration vessels are being encouraged by the Explorer’s Association to gather valuable information on previously uncharted star systems. The request has been submitted on behalf of a number of secondary organisations, which plan to use the data to improve their planetary databases. A spokesperson for the association released a brief statement:

      “There is always a demand for fresh data, not only within the commercial sector but also among various geopolitical entities. On this occasion, the request has been issued on behalf of several private concerns in need of accurate, up-to-date information. Any pilots who contribute to this initiative will be generously rewarded.”

      Appeal for Exploration Data:

As well as your usual credits, a successful CG will also unlock a new ship for new and inexperienced players (players with between 3 and 10 hours of game play). The type of ship that is granted will depend on the tier achieved.

  1. Let me know what you think about us including the show notes please? It takes some effort making them suitable for general consumption, but if it’s appreciated then it’s worth the effort.

    Not sure why my podcast app gets the podcast a few days after it’s aired but in case Mindwipe et al haven’t already figured it out yet:

    When your ship is hung in midair like that, it’s because the game has you in a landed state. Apply vertical thrust as you would on the surface to re-engage thrusters. The clue is in the fact that your ship allowsn you to deploy the SRV and your thrusters can’t be toggled. Landing in mid air is a known bug at least as of beta 4.

  3. Personally I absoluely love it but if it’s just me and it’s not a trivial cut and paste job then could I make a suggestion that, at the very least, you include links to any external things you refer to (e.g. forum and reddit posts, youtube videos, Q&A’s, etc) because sometimes you mention stuff I’ve missed which I then really struggle to track down.

  4. Good Ep was nice to be on it briefly 2weeks ina row but mostly LOVE the show art i wonder whos cutter that is blasting Ben Moss Woodwards scard >;)
