      Last year, the folks at SpecialEffect issued a special mission to Commanders asking them to provide a shot of their SpecialEffect Sidewinder (that’s the Sidewinder in the SpecialEffect colours that Frontier kindly gave away as part of last year’s Christmas Livestream).
      The winning shot, that you can see here, was taken by the epic Peter Wotherspoon of the Hutton Orbital Truckers. It was used in SpecialEffect social media relating to Frontier and the Elite community and on their banner stands.
      This year, they’re looking for their ‘Elite Image for 2018’.
      Locate ONE image of one of your ships that you’d like to submit for the competition.
      Deadline: 4th December
      Interact with your email by attaching the image
      Deliver image to SpecialEffect by emailing it to
      Please include your name, your Commander name and your group if you are part of one (e.g. Hutton Orbital Truckers)
      You will receive a reward if you are chosen as the winner.
      Good luck Commander o7If you are the winner, we will announce it on the Frontier Livestream on 11/12 December. We will contact you by email to let you know you’ve been successful and get an address to send your prize.
      If you are not using the SpecialEffect paintjob or decal, we WILL superimpose the decal on your ship. The easier that is for us to do, the more chance you have of winning. Nice clear shots where we can show the decal would be ideal. The ultimate winner may have a better chance if they track down a fellow commander with the decal or paintjob and grab an action shot of them!
      Any volunteers as “models” in their Specialeffect livery, put your hands up now!
      It is important to note that because Baz Floyd of SpecialEffect is a Hutton Orbital Trucker, he will not be on the judging panel.
      The judges’ decision will be final and non-negotiable.

EGX 2016 Day’s 3 and 4

20160924_131450EGX 2016 Days 3 and 4

On Saturday I was finally able to browse the show floor properly with some fellow commanders and we have a fun recording of them along with Barry from Special Effect, a gentleman who walked from Bristol to EGX for Special Effect and ‘Wonder Woman’. Along with that I also went to the Planet Coaster Developer session. Naturally I was also at Elite Meet though I will save my thoughts on that for the main show, although here’s a most disturbing video of the shenanigans that occurred there!

On Sunday I was with Commanders Kerrash and John Whitehouse and we spent the day exploring some of the retro games (naturally including Elite on a BBC) and some of the VR Experiences on the Show floor. We have interviews with MVR Ascend who are producing a Wireless VR Rig and finally an interview with Katie Goode from Triangular Pixels who’s game Unseen Diplomacy gave me one of the best VR Experiences I have ever had.
