    18. Issues related to other mission related cargo types being unable to be transferred or purchased from Fleet Carriers have been addressed.
    19. Issues have been fixed in relation to the BGS, caused by mission antagonists being part of the mission giving faction in salvage and illegal defence missions.

    23. This will also address improvements to tether range.
    24. An issue has been resolved whereby players could erroneously be assigned bounties when other ships were destroyed around them..

Mostly Clueless

  1. Cmdr Terekhov from the Fuel Rats When approaching a station or outpost using the standard 0:07 second approach, as you get close, watch the speed/distance indicator in the bottom left pane of your HUD. Once the “Speed” indicator is in the blue region, you can forget about the time to target indicator and you can increase your throttle to get there more quickly (as long as your speed remains in the blue area).
    1. Follow up from Shouty – You can also travel at 0:06 secs and save more time…


Elite Dangerous were kind enough to to give us some Azimuth Ruthless skins, we gave away the FDL skin last night to a commander who shot @bwoodward (other people just shot me for fun!) However we still have an Eagle and a Krait Mk II skin (wot no Chieftain Arf?)

You can win these by sending something creative about Tuesday’s events to, be it a Drabble, a limerick, a pun, etc

For example Commander Terekhov from the FuelRats submitted this…

There was an old man called Salvation,
Who hated the whole Thargoid nation,
His weapon backfired,
And Thargoids were ire’d,
That silly old man called Salvation
