  • Questions
    • From Cmdr Dissington
      As the Exploration CG for Jacques finished 3 weeks early – leaving many cmdrs (I assume – certainly me 😉 ) partway there with a computer full of exploration scans, should Frontier we approaching CG Tiers better? Personally I spent 12-15 hours of game time on my own without a soul about jumping that way, time effectively wasted.
      They obviously got the tiers on this one completely wrong otherwise it’d still be running. In fact I have no idea why they finish when they reach the top tier, just leave them running and don’t increase any of the rewards surely? Especially on a CG 22,000 ly away

New Lave Radio show, “Remote Outpost Games”

Cover for Episode 1 of Lave Radio Remote Outpost GamesNeed a podcast while you wait/travel for LaveCon? We have a prototype new show for your listening pleasure and in the absence of a main Lave Radio show this week, we though it was a good time to let you hear it!

Remote Outpost Games is a new Lave Radio interview show. Our guests are stranded on a remote outpost with only five games salvaged from the wreck of their ship. All Lave Radio escape pods automatically get Elite Dangerous and Tetris but the rest is up to the survivor. Which games would they choose and why?

In this pilot episode, John Stabler interviews one of our own – Christopher Jarvis – about his choice of five games, what he looks for in a game, howhe feels about current trends in gaming and – of course – Escape Velocity.
