IDA – Karmov Survey was completely repaired last week. Bao Landing Is the current target for repairs.
Anti-Xeno-League – the Eagle Eye network, which has been taken offline by Thargoid Sensor bombing of Dante Enterprise. Means that we theoretically don’t know where the Thargoid attacks will come next. But Canonn has become VERY good a t guessing 🙂 rumors that new group may be implicated. – Both target systems from week 23 – Magec and HIP 30045 were successfully defended, both having the Thargoid threat repelled. The residents of both systems can breath more easily today thanks to all who assisted in these efforts.All six Eagle Eyes this week are OFFLINE – transmissions are just “system error system error system error system error.”The Aegis megaships Vanguard and Acropolois remain in Nu-1 Columbae and Magec.Thanks to the hard-working Lab 69 XIA analysts who have toured systems with Ammonia Worlds or Ammonia Gas Giants scouring for non-human signal sources, we have identified the targets as Pemepatung and LP 102-320.Coincidentally, that bumbling oaf Aden Tanner was quoted in a Galnet transmission stating that Dantec Enterprise was unable to transmit to Eagle Eye due to Thargoid Sensor interference. Really sounds like those guys could do with a few pointers from our scientists on how to handle these things safely.However, their call for meta-alloys is likely to be met by all who – like us – are concerned at possible Thargoid developments over coming weeks. Like it or not, we need Aegis support for this intelligence.–Captain Rebuy–

PAX West Community Event –We’re headed to PAX West in Seattle and we want to meet up with you to chat, enjoy free food, drinks and even more fun! We can’t wait to see you there! If you;-
Are available on Friday, August 31, 2018 from 8PM -12AM PDT;
And can make it to our venue at Melrose Market Studios in Seattle…
We’d love to invite you to our Frontier Community Meet! Spaces are limited so it will be first come first served!
Player Numbers – Brett C made an interesting point over the constant use of Steam Stats :-
It feels as if people are using Steam stats as the be-all-end-all argument that “Elite Dangerous is [dieing|dead|abandoned|on the death bed]”.
Unfortunately for those folks that are attempting to use Steam’s player count as ammo for the above… Steam stats only paint a very small picture of our actual player counts[b][c].
Elite Dangerous was not originally released on and locked to the Steam platform in 2014. It was made with our own client patcher, our own accounts system, our own developed systems. Completely split away from Steam. We do not force people to launch the game through Steam. At last check, players can download Elite Dangerous from Steam, and not have the Steam client running at all while playing Elite.
PS4 Issue – Reports of slow downs in the loading screens on the PS4. IF you have this issue Frontier recommends to do a PS4 reset ;-
Turn off the PS4 using the Turn off option not Rest mode. (r/http://manuals.playstation.net/document/gb/ps4/basic/power.html)
Disconnect the power cord from the machine.
Wait for 30 seconds and then plug everything back in and turn the power back on.
I hope this helps but if you continue to face issues, open a support ticket and we can investigate your connection to see if that may be facing issues.
Anti Xeno Initiative – Dhanhopi was attacked this week, Bok was saved. New Targets confirmed as CW Ursae Majoris and Kamadhenu, both have NHSS and wrecked Megaships (useful for interceptors). There are interceptor-grade NHSS in CW Ursae Majoris, only scouts in Kamadhenu. Aegis ships are in both systems – be aware that if the target locations for Thargoid Massacre missions are in other systems they will not count to save the systems.
IDA – So, the summer is finally taking its toll. Having rushed Artemis in record time, Kamov Survey in HIP 17892 has been slower to repair. But, slowly and steady the stations is being brough back online. Now, if you’re in the area (or want to visit beautiful Pleiades), please pop by Kamov Survey with a load or two. Some amazing commanders.
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:
With the Release of the new Elite: Dangerous novel Premonition, Chief Archivist Colin ‘PhoenixDfire’ Ford has a chat with Author Drew Wagar about how difficult it was to write, ‘THAT’ event and it’s aftermath and plans for the future.
