Development News – what have the devs said this week?

  1. Clarification about the Galnet/CGs :- 
    1. Just wanted to jump in this here locked thread and clarify Stephen’s earlier post. Essentially, the plan has not changed for how we’re treating future GalNet articles, which (as we stated here) will be tied to in-game activity, significant narrative developments, new ships and modules and so forth. It is the ‘off-camera’ narratives, that we have previously published via GalNet, which we currently have no plans to return.

      The framework for Community Goals exist and while the regular cadence of Community Goals is not planned to see a return, we will still see some Community Goals in the future.

      Apologies for any confusion that was caused!
    2. Introduction to CMDR Bruce (Gambit)We got a ‘Brucie Bonus’ when introduced to New CM Bruce who said about Fleet Carriers that the new systems that came with them would change how they play the game. That’s got people really excited that it will be more than just a mobile space station. 
  2. Hoax announcement of Fleet Carriers being delayed until q4 has been debunked by Will on the Forums. Quite a nice mocked up but caused a little salt on the forums.
  3. Formula 1® Licence & additional publishing dealsFrontier to develop and publish management games annually for the FIA FORMULA ONE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
  4. Frontier is pleased to confirm the signing of another two Frontier Publishing deals, taking the number of signed deals to five for the Company’s third party publishing initiative.Other deals are “in discussion”

In-Game Events – what’s happened this week?

  1. Operation IDA – They have successfully repaired Titan’s Daughter and are now focusing on Exodus Point in the Hyades Sector AB-W b2-2 System.
  2. Anti-Xeno – Again the Eagle eye network is quiet and there have been no sneaky incursions by the Thargoids. Scouts and interceptors continue to plague the Pleiades and the Witch-head Nebula if people want to take.
