No much in the way of news at the moment.

AEGIS confirm that Capital Ships are vulnerable to thargoid attack due to the EMP effect. The new EMP counter does not scale to capital ship size. So it’s only us commanders in the smaller ships stand a chance in stopping the thargoids.
If you are wondering there the “How to Make A Galaxy” talk by Anthony Ross from frontier Expo is. According to ED on his lunchtime livestream , This will be redone and transmitted via live stream where it can also be more interactive and in better quality. No Eta, no guarantees etc. Ed Also mentions they are looking at doing more “TED” style streams in the future in the same vein.

Gluttony Fang : has a series of excellent videos show how to take out thargoids. He’s able to solo them but he does a really scary Imperial Cutter, with double fighter bays. Excellent source for those who wish to resist the Alien Overlords!
Those of you who have been following Elite:Dangerous since the Kickstarter, will know of the original RPG project by Dave Hughes at Daftworks. Well, after five years of struggle, The Elite Encounters RPG has been approved for release and digital copies of the game are now available for sale at the Daftworks Store.
All of us at Lave Radio wish to send our congratulations to Dave as we know how much effort, blood, sweat, tears, coffee and late nights he’s put into this project (with a little bit of help from our own Colin Ford, among many others).
We have three episodes using the game and they can be found at:

INRA Base Mega Thread – Stay away from the file dipping controversy. Also players have found what looks like the remains of a Thargoid scout at the base where maybe the Mycoid virus was used to test . base is Klatt Enterprises at Alnath A2 AA 4.0167 133.54
DeskPins is an open source application that allows you to “pin” a window so that it remains “on top” of your Elite any full-screen borderless window (does not work with true-full screen)… Perfect for that trip to Hutton Orbital!

On Friday I went to a Panel on the Past, Present and Future of XCOM with Julian Gollop, the original creator of X-COM: UFO Defense , and Jake Solomon, creative director of the current XCOM. At the panel I bumped into Cmdr Wishblend and spoke to her about the highlight’s of her day.
On Saturday and Sunday I spoke to a lot of the Smaller Developers including a lot of Masters students from the NFTS. These students have had roughtly 5 months to develop and build their ideas before their presentations at EGX, although they have until Chrismas to finish their project
Not every project has a website up and running for their work, especially those of the National Film and Television School, but where websites are available I’ll like them in the show notes.
Please remember that all of the audio was recorded live at the convention in a noisy environment, so I’ll apologise in advance for any audio issues.
I had the chance to explore so many great games at EGX this year. Falling Sky, even though it’s a student project has a really great feel to it and I’m really interested in where Jonathan Nielssen takes it. I absolutely adored Jo Paterson’s music in May. Sunless Skies, 2000 to 1 and The Town Of Light I found myself getting immediately immersed in and I could have so easily played them for hours, which of course you can’t have at a convention, but I’ll definately be picking these up and playing some more of them when I have some free time!
