Main discussion

  1. Lavecon 2022!
    1. Alec Turner – Fantastic (if hot) way to start the Lavecon weekend kart racing with this fabulous bunch of Buckyballers and Elite racers.
    2. Alec Turner – THE first pint served at Lavecon 2022 was … drumroll … a lager shandy!
    3. Alec Turner
      1. One more highlight from me –  sitting outside drinking with a bunch of folks close to midnight, thinking about turning in but then Tom Kewell and Derin Halil come over and the next thing I know it’s 2:30am! Respect to all at FD for engaging!
    4. Rheeney
      1. I want to put every single photo in, there were so many wonderful moments ☺️ But getting to meet @smorganmoore in person was a super special thing for me 💕
    5. Epaphus –
      1. Meeting fellow CMDRs. 
      2. Attending an event like this on my own was so far out of my comfort zone I was feeling really nervous about going, however everyone was really nice and welcoming.
      3. Walking into a room or to the outside seating area and having people wave at me to join them was a real highlight and brightened my day.
      4. Wish I had said hi to some people I was too shy to go up to. 
      5. Next time I need to take some photos.
    6. CMDR Buur
      1. Meeting so  many friends in the flesh for the first time
    7. Cmdr Rheeny
      1. Also in this room seeing the appreciation and love for this game we all play. For me it was the first time I’d ever seen the original Elite and that is a moment I’ll definitely remember forever.
    8. Tom Kewell
      1. In my top 10 for the weekend, helming Frontier’s entry to the Artemis competition!
    9. CMDR Homborger
      1. Was so excited to actually see these people in the flesh!
    10. LCU No Fool Like One
      1. Showering three times a day.
    11. Flossy
      1. Being presented with this collection tub, by Psykokow and Simoof was another favourite highlight of the weekend.  I love it!  Flossy is short for Florence, the Magic Roundabout character that I based my gaming name on.
      2. And finally….. Another highlight has to be the presentation of my Aardvark collection during the Hutton Radio live show LOL. (Regular listeners to the show will know why!)  😄
    12. CMDR Zulu Romeo
      1. As always, being in the almighty presence of the eternally fluffy dog-emperor of the universe, Alvin
  2. LaveCon Guardian Tinfoil Clips
    1.… “Don’t say anything you shouldn’t say”
    2.… “the Guardians aren’t here anymore”

  4. 2HOT2MESSY – 
    1. Several years ago the Hutton Truckers arranged HOTMESS, its singular mission – to Mug Every Single Station. The plan was to bring a Hutton Mug to EVERY station in the galaxy…. Helping keep MODS (Mug Ownership Deficiency Syndrome) at bay.

      It has come to the attention of the crew that the Pilots’ Federation in their infinite wisdom added “just a few” more commodity markets to the galaxy when Odyssey arrived, and without their shipment of Hutton Mugs, they’re in severe danger of contracting MODS. What’s more, scientists based in the bar at Hutton have realised that the effect of the Hutton Mug can be amplified by actually having something to put in it. EVEN BETTER – it was discovered that Centauri Mega Gin was the perfect choice. Which by sheer coincidence is ALSO sold at Hutton.

      The original MESS took 90 days to deliver mugs to 50,000 stations

      NOW there are over 130,000 commodity markets. Which, with the community’s help, in the single biggest trucking mission in the galaxy ALL need their delivery.
    2. When?
      1. We’re starting loading ships up with mugs and gin at Hutton Orbital NEXT THURSDAY (28th) from 2030BST. We’re also loading up fleet carriers (there is a waiting list as the area is a bit full) as well as the larger vessels. In Hutton PG as well as Open (or solo, or your own player groups).
      2. The Actual Delivery event starts from 2030 BST on the 4th August
    3. How to take part
      1. Any 2HOT2MESSY deliveries are tracked using the Hutton Helper available at
    4. Are there prizes?
      1. Yes. Hutton Mugs. Real ones. Plus swag from Spidermind and others. There will be a mug a week until the mission is completed. Anyone who has delivered 10 mugs and gin in that week will go into the draw for a Hutton Mug – you will NEVER have a better opportunity to win one. Plus decals
  5. The High Wake have a new video out –  Raxxla is here! Featuring CMDR Datanode and CMDR psykit who does absolutely no murder.
  6. Operation Wych Hunt

Mostly Clueless

  1. The Route Plotter doesn’t take into account the weight of your fuel. If you have half of your tank you might find that you can manually jump a lot further.
