Community Corner

  1. TDW are back from Holiday break and are pushing now. Will go pending expansion this week to go into Sol Test site. After that they are prepped to start the expansion to LFT509 test site. So this month is going to see them test the remaining 2 sites!
  2. We hope MalicVR enjoyed his week of fame with his 5hr 48min Beagle Point run … this has now been utterly shattered by previous record holder Dr Chives with a time of 4hrs 18mins 53secs
  3. Former Community Manager Paige Harvey AKA Arthremis is doing a multi streamer AMA on life as a marginalised person on Saturday the 30th of January from 12pm to 6pm
  4. We have to congratulate Cmdr Muskateer for reaching 200,000 kills in CQC (200,003 at the last count).
  5. Congratulations must also goto Cmdr Overlight who took 5 seconds off the Hutton Orbital run speed record, which had previously been held by Cmdr Bret Riverboat for over a year.
  6. It appears that the company that supplied the Fantastic ED Tracker has gone under. Although you can still buy the device in kit form (https://hobbycomponents.com/234-edtracker), the main website has gone down and there is no support available unless you go via the forums or the amazing Brumster still has software on his website. (http://www.brumster.com/index.php/gaming/6-edtracker-pro-software)
  7. Elite Dangerous Ship Anatomy – http://a.teall.info/edsa/ 
    1. Awesome tool, showing you where on your ship your modules actually are
