    1. Would the community be in a much better place if they had delayed Odyssey till say update 8? 
    2. We’ve covered down parts of Odyssey so far but what have been the high points of Odyssey so far ?

    2. Guardian Resurrection? 
    3. Salvation AI War?

    1. (I was told recently) honk every jump on the way to an engineer and hand in the cartographics with them, counts toward your grade rating with that engineer. (Not personally tested this).

Any other business

  1. Console Gaming… – Cmdr Tessnic reached out to us about Streaming services and Odyssey
    1. XBox Cloud Gaming
    2. It’s not a cloud service specific to the console. It’s an Xbox GamePass service that works across console and PC. Unfortunately, since Frontier never released a PC version of the elite dangerous on the Windows Store, the cloud gaming feature for elite dangerous is streaming the console version of the game. So there isn’t going to be Odyssey gameplay available on the Xbox platform even through the streaming service. 
    3. GeForce Now
      1. It works, however it’s a little controversial since some publishing houses, including Activision Blizzard and Bethesda don’t allow it to stream their games. – The Verge – Nvidia’s GeForce Now is becoming an important test for the future of cloud gaming
      2. Ben has some thoughts on this 🙂
        1. “One good example of a downside of GeForce Now is mobile ports. What developer would put resources toward developing a competent mobile port of their game, with hopes to resell it to a new audience to recoup investment on the port and make some profit, if GeForce Now is available on mobile (it’s already on Android) and completely obviates the need to pay for the mobile version? A service like GeForce Now complicates that for developers, and as van Lierop points out, “the most customer-friendly thing you can do as a dev, is run a sustainable business so that you can support your game and your customers into the future.”
        2. “A world where a developer goes out of business because they can only sell a limited number of copies on Steam — due to cloud gaming making it available everywhere else for free — is not what anyone should want.”
        3. “Right now, Nvidia’s “ask for forgiveness, but not permission” strategy is irking game developers, and for good reason.”
      3. Tessnic made a good point – “Where this is the most convenient is if you just want to try out a game without needing to worry about the insane install times”
  2. Emily Inkpen:  “Hey space voyagers! I’m the author of a sci-fi audio drama called The Dex Legacy. It’s a full cast, high production show with original music by Allen Stroud. It’s going to be broadcast on Lave Radio soon, and it would be amazing if you could tune in!

    It’s set on the planet SP714, which was seeded by Earth 1500 years (ish) before the drama starts. It’s about a weapons manufacturer turned president of his own country called Nathaniel Dex, and his adopted children (who he’s had crafted into super soldiers). He rents them as part of advanced military service packages to whatever government wants them.

    Dex Island is a closed state and everyone there works for Dex Industries, and the status of the country is internationally contested.

    There’s a lot going on in the narrative and I think there’s a good chance a lot of you will love it.” (Link to Main site) (Trailer Link)
