Development News – what have the devs said this week?

  1. Elite Dangerous Livestreams – 28.04.2022
    1. Bruce: Greetings Commanders

      The official Elite Dangerous livestream will not take place this week. We’ll post in the future to confirm when they will resume.
  2. Alec Turner
  3. Bruce replying to Obsidian Ant’s suspicions that this is not just one stream
    No apologies needed!

    The post was worded carefully and precisely. We don’t know when the streams will continue. When we do, we’ll post to let everyone know.
  4. Obsidian Ant
    Fortunately for us as a community, I can tell you that the current Elite CM team care about Elite very, very much. Way more so than most of us realise.

    The issue isn’t about the CM (they are great), it’s not about the devs (they are also good), it’s about the policy set by Frontier as a company. That policy is to “not talk” about development.

    Now I’m 100% certain Frontier will release news at some point – maybe soon, maybe not so soon. But even if they do release news and updates, that doesn’t fully address the problem. It all comes down to whether or not Frontier can consistently release information and engage with the community over a period of years at a time without going radio silent on a regular basis.

    Bottom line: The CM do care (a lot), news will come. Those two things aren’t even in question. The question is how long will it be until Frontier go radio silent again, and stop engaging with the community. It’s this last part which is doing a lot of harm to the Elite community.
  5. And then the next day… Frameshift Live 4/5/2022: Console Account Transfers & Elite Dangerous 2022
    1.  Frameshift Live will be back next week on Wednesday 4th May at 16:00 BST where we will be discussing console account transfers, our focus for Elite Dangerous in 2022 and the usual community news!
    2. Alec Turner…

  9. End of the Galactic Mapping Project :-


  1. I feel I need to set the record straight concerning the claim that I single-handedly defeated the Thargoids in the Lembass system.

    Whilst it SEEMED that I was fighting them alone, it is entirely conceivable that I had help in the half-hour of daily shut-eye I succumb-to between shifts; something for which I evidently castigate myself.

    I should also confess that whilst I always answer the call to arms, sometimes that answer is “No” when the call is “Defeat the Hydra threat”! I have found this particular spikey beast is just beyond the limit of my Scarab combat skills.

    I know this is unacceptable, and vow to improve the only way I know how: by pulling more petals and stealing more hearts.

    Your humble and dutiful AX pilot, Cmdr Ned McReady.
