    “It’s a frontier thing, but not possible without the incredible community. We have a group of mentors that have signed up (volunteers) and they are on Teamspeak and Discord and we will be emailing all our players with low play time and then all new players every week with details about the academy. It’s a landing page with user guides, videos and most importantly ways to connect straight up with our volunteer mentors. They consist of ambassadors, mods, group representatives and other specialists. It’s about teaching players and hand holding them where needs into basic things like the galaxy map, making a credit or two, etc”
  • Reduce the barrier for entry for ‘alternative mission flows’ I.E. you won’t have to drop out of supercruise to get an alternative.
  • USS for missions will generally be at a specific body in a system rather than random
  • Nav Beacons can be scanned to give system information!
  • Systems will now have traffic lanes and hubs and these affect the creation of USS. Also USS are created spatially not temporally, so you can’t just sit there and wait for them,
  • USS can be scanned to reveal information about them.
    • “This week’s dev update is the penultimate update “ Hmmm so 25/2 for last 2.1 update. Can we speculate Alpha early March?
    • Improving Variety
    • 3 stage hierarchy for generating missions
  • Capitol in Achenar to get some actual Land!
  • New Sets of Anaconda skins. The empire people are very happy with the white one. 😉
  • Announcement via Zac:
    • Galactic Academy

    • We are a small player faction, known as NULL,  here to help others with donations for lost ships due to lack of insurance as well as new players getting their footing, and an escort service for traders and returning explorers.  And we are now under threat of being steam rollered by Winters PP faction.  We need help, as our currently limited resources are running low.
      Any Alliance commanders listening in please ship prep agreements to DR Crucis.
      Any NON-Winters aligned players, please undermine them to assist us staying independent, and here to help others.
      NULL needs your help, to ensure our BANK deposits here for others remains available and open for business.
