    • After scouting by both the Fuel Rats and DW2 Mechanics/Hull Seals, he was found to be stuck, good and well 🙁 No landable planets with Germanium…
    • Some nice RP and visits by people dropping Weetabix and Relics that emit a nice blue glow in the dark whilst Cmdr Liandrei was circumnavigating the planets in the system he was in, in a desperate search for Jumponium
    • On Saturday 4th May 3305 the Pilots Federation dispatched an experimental, modified space tug boat from their support wing and hauled my vessel to the system just out of reach.

  • Developer Led Content
  • Things to do in game while we wait for content
    • Ventura : Hi all, I think currently, while they work on CG+ they have opened the  way for station repairs, fight the thargoids and DW2. In the repairs they have set the required commodities to high demand.

      Or as you said Colin there is Mining or power play. Also there work is on the other account on Xbox getting to Colonia. I know you’re looking for content for the show, but ppl are on DW2 and working on stations at the moment. Was going to suggest to Kow that they do a station completion Stat on Thursdays Hutton News. I am currently working on trying to get my 1st Elite in Trade doing the station repairs and playing Wow.

      I think at the moment the new content is from the community, rather than F-dev.
    • Had a thought, if you could create new content what would it be? Either story line or in game function. Also you can discuss the lack of content from F-dev… The negativity meter will be needed for the last one 🙂

  • Elite Community Meet (Renaissance Hotel in Manchester, 20th April) has sold 140 tickets however there’s still some tickets available. Also – they’re hunting for a couple more PC’s and possibly one more projector/screen for the main room if anyone has such things they can bring with them!  Retro area has everything EXCEPT a BBC Micro. https://elitemeet.info/
  • EDCommodity is a FREERRE app for the IPhone and IPad that extracts the best prices for a number of best selling commodities. It also shows the list of top systems and stations selling that commodity! Data is taken from eddb to populate the app.

    The app was made by CMDR Zaphonicus Taurog just for fun because he had recently been made redundant and decided to learn to programme in swift , “Because he can”. He’s also looking to learn to code in Android as well, so watch out !

    Whilst it’s not perfect , he will be working with feedback , which can be sent with the app, to add future functionality and to improve the UI and UX.

    He’s working on how to make the data be relevant to your local position and shows systems near you selling at best prices.  Looks like he’ll have to use EDSM data for that …

      For the half dozen or so CMDRs who have already reached Goliath’s Rest and are logging your progress on EDSM, please make sure you visit Hypiae Phyloi LR-C D22 at some point before leaving for WP9 next weekend .

  • Departure from Polo Harbour marks the end of Stage 1.

    Stage 2: Building the Galactic Core Starport and discovering secrets at the heart of the galaxy.
    Stage 2 will offer new challenges as we begin to leave the last human outposts far behind, in addition some of the optional points of interest along the Stage 2 route may be in locations requiring large jump ranges, and/or the use of neutron boosts if you want to visit them!

    The main goal of this stage though will be to complete the 2nd phase of the community goal at the very heart of the galaxy when we arrive at WP7 in a couple of weeks time. After which the fleet will continue to explore the core, and gradually make its way out toward the far side.

    Fleet attrition will most likely begin to bite during this stage, as was the case with DW1, many commanders see Sagittarius A as an adequate goal in which to call it a day – and this is perfectly fine – DW2 will be no different!

  • Sagittarius Eye Issue 18
  • Anti-Xeno Initiative – the thargoids have upped the stakes at the moment. We have 5 systems in Incursion and 5 systems with an infestations. Defenders are stretched to the limit, with the AXI only able to defend one system last week.
  • Operation IDA – congratulations for completing Cleaver Prospect. They have now targeted the noob hammer Station of Cavalieri in the Electra system. (for the second time)
  • Battlecards News. Nothing has happened as far as the opposing party. However, the good news is that there has been movement on the Kickstarter Front, who are looking seriously at this matter now. Hopefully Good News  Soon(™)
