  1. Ody Update Day 1 Cold Fix
  2. Some Help from Dom Corner on how to get that 1st Maverick Suit
    1. Or do it legitimately with collection missions which are plentiful, legal, and risk free
    2. the fetch missions shouldn’t need you to break into anywhere
    3. they pay about 80k each, so two or three will get you into a maverick utility suit
    4.  they were slightly delayed and arrived at about 10pm last night
  3. Also Happy Birthday to Dom Corner for Wednesday and an extra special thank you for working you Birthday! <3

  1. D2EA has made a video fully explaining the “Cheese” method to get the Maverick suit during the ED Odyssey Alpha as well as how to equip it.
    1. Currently there’s a catch 22 in the alpha – many of the missions need a suit with an Arc Cutter… however you don’t have one and need to > 150,000 credits to buy one
      1. In a station – go to a mission board and select 2 support missions that provide you with a Power Regulator (These usually say “Reactivation”
      2. Taxi Apex Interstellar to another station and then go to the bar
      3. Sell the 2 Power Regulators you were given for 200,000 and abandon the missions (please note you’ll take a reputation hit)
      4. At Pioneer Supplies you can now buy your new suit with the Arc Cutter!!!
    2. To Make a new loadout with your new suit
      1. Go back to the mission terminal
      2. Click on Edit Loadout
      3. Click Create and make yourself a loadout with your Maverick and any weapons you also wish to equip.
      4. You can not get changed in the middle of the station (nor are there any handy phone booths)
    3. To actually equip  a loadout
      1. Take a taxi some where
      2. Look at the pad between your legs
      3. Select Loadouts
      4. Select the Loadout you wish to use
