Development News – what have the devs said this week?

  1. Thursday’s Stream – Arf and Sally explore the Thargoid bases (or are they crashed mother ships?). Couple of things to mention.
    1. Update 9 is scheduled for December.
    2. Update 9 will be the last update of the year.
    3. We will be seeing fleet carriers walking around sometime in December.
    4. There appears to be some hints at SRV based missions that will use the new Combat SRV.
    5. They also discussed the timescales involved about implementing suggestions from the Engineering suggestions. We’re probably going to have to wait until next year.
    6. They did say that engineering is only one thing that they wanted to look at. They did say that crime and punishment might get another pass. (They said that about powerplay and CQC too in the past!)
  2. The hunt for Theta 7 –
    1. This was won by CMDR Therion Cygni who successfully decoded the message by use of Mathematical Matrices and Excel.

  1. The Anix- Xeno Initiative has a

Mostly Clueless

  1. Neutron boosting for beginners. (1). When entering the jetcone, always enter the jetcone facing away from the neutron star, throttle down till your FSD is overcharged. (2) Never use white dwarfs for boosts. The jetcone doesn’t extend far enough from the exclusion zone, the boost isn’t very good, and you risk dropping out and getting killed to death. 3. If you DO unfortunately drop out, try your best to low wake out. Use boost to try to get your trajectory aligned with where you’re pointing quicker, and call the Hull Seals to get a fix up when you get out! Always carry enough synthesis mats in case your canopy gets broken. A broken canopy isn’t a death sentence if you have enough emergency oxygen (life support) synthesis mats! It’s common nickel and iron.


  1. Alezelander Coburn on You-tube says comments twice (We appreciate your enthusiasm) 
    1. He says the original Store Alert Song is the best
    2. Black Ship skins for Fleet Carriers Please!

Any other business

  1. Last Week it was SWTOR and the Elder Scrolls Online. This week it’s the ten year anniversary of Skyrim (I’m still playing and still haven’t finished it).


  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.

2£10.00Listen to the Christmas special in the comfort of your own home for a small additional cost!
