Main discussion

  1. There are a lot of complaints about Elite:Dangerous being a M.V.P. with unfinished bits all over the place. However, what does Elite Dangerous Do that feels complete?

Community Corner

  1. AXI have done it again. HOw to kill a Hydra in an unengineered ship , Heck they killed a Medusa in an E-rated Chieftain too
  2. After our Multi-crew discussion last week. Ascorbius from the Brocast decided to do a muti-crew meet up. With as many Multi-crew ships they could find. See how they did at :-
  3. FFED3DAJ – updated. To v 1.17beta4. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it is the Frontier’s First Encounters update for modern Machines. I.E. it will make FFE work on any PC after 2008, uses updated 3D Models and effects using DX9. It’s based on the JJFFE mod so there are lateral thrusters as well which really improves the full newtonian combat. You can find out how to install it and further discussion head over to

Mostly Clueless

  1. Shan – The docking slot is usually facing the planet, you can make it easier to get into a docking position by aligning the holographic image of the targeted station so that the slot is facing forwards. That way you’ll emerge facing the slot.


  1. Dockers is doing a Charity Christmas Special
    1. I know it’s only September and good taste dictates that Christmas should never be mentioned until long after Halloween, but in the world of entertainment Christmas has to be prepared well in advance. When you think about preparing for Christmas, you’re probably thinking about the dinner. Will it be turkey? Beef? How about an enormous cock?

      Yes, the Dockers are coming back this year with a Christmas special and they have set up a kickstarter on justgiving. Yes that’s right, a kickstarter on Just Giving. I don’t think they quite understand that all the money will be going to charity.

      If you haven’t heard of it before Dockers is a mockumentary podcast about the ordinary folk of the Galaxy from the lowly toilet attendants to famous wildlife documentary makers. It’s been going for a few years and usually does a live show at Lavecon, late at night, well after the watershed because it’s very, very naughty

      If they meet their target they will put on the Christmas show, (though to be honest they will put it on regardless.) They have some rewards in their charity kickstarter. If you ever fancied being the subject of a documentary  there are a few options to get your name in the show. Some of them are pretty unsavory.
1£5.00Listen to the Christmas special in the comfort of your own home for no additional cost!
2£10.00Listen to the Christmas special in the comfort of your own home for a small additional cost!

4£30.00Listen to the Christmas special in the comfort of your own home for a substantial additional cost!
5£40.00A lifetime supply of Gnosis Avian Cheese**While stocks last (10 available). Only one block per lifetime, believe me that is enough. No refunds. First come first serve. After ten blocks are allocated reward will be downgraded to tier 3
6£50.00A sketch featuring you written and performed by members of the cast of dockers.* To be clear when we say members we don’t mean penises. The segment will be up to 5 minutes long.
7£200.00A character of our choice will perform a sex act on you during the show**This will be a dramatisation not an actual act you sicko
8£500.00A character of our choice will perform an enjoyable sex act on you during the show**This will be a dramatisation not an actual act you sicko. Enjoyment is not guaranteed.
9£1000.00We will have your ears surgically removed so that you never have to listen to the show again.*Need I tell you that this is satire and not a cure for body dysmorphia?
