Main discussion

  1. As someone on the forums pointed out, it is now 4 years since we last had a new ship. So we’re going to look over the old ships and see if any of them are relevant or has their original role already been taken by existing ships-
    1. Boa * : 
    2. Cobra Mk 1 *
    3. Constrictor * 
    4. Falcon, 
    5. Gecko 
    6. Griffin
    7. Gyr
    8. Harrier
    9. Harris Fighter
    10. Hawk Airfighter
    11. Interplanetary Shuttle
  2. Alec’s forum questionnaire – If Frontier were to add a new ship, give three attributes of that ship (and they can be anything from aesthetics to specific ship stat’s) that you’d like to see in that new ship.
    1. Mad Mike: I would like a more mining focussed SLF (its still a ship right?) or if that is outside the scope of the question then a full on ship aimed towards mining. Able to equip ALL the mining tools, a decent amount of limpets as well as a mining SLF that i can deploy and scan asteroids with whilst letting mothership wait whilst collecting from a previously mined out rock. Ideally reasonable cargo, but a medium sized ship. I user a T10 now but its a bit sluggish to move around a belt. Probably too much to ask but also have it able to equip a mining machine (cant remember its name) from Frontier 1st encounters that i could deposit and come back to.
    2. Zieman: Moray Starboat, sold only in Dodec Stations orbiting Water Worlds.
    3. Vardaugas: Large short-range-high-volume hauler
      1. Medium short-range-high-volume hauler
      2. Small Alliance Navy
      3. Small Federation Navy
      4. Medium Imperial Navy
      5. Interplanetary Shuttle and Lifter
      6. Medium tourist boat
    4. Cmdr Numa: First and foremost I just want the Panther LX finally out. As for completely new ships:
      1. A large explorer, probably imperial, weak combat stats, big FSD (class 8 ?), plenty of internals, magnificent cockpit view.
      2. A large combat ship with more direct firepower than the Corvette but no fighter bay.
    5. HRDiagram: Here’s my dream ship in 3 attributes:
      1. Vertical development (taller than wider), so that it has to enter the mailslot sideways to fit (barely)
      2. Very long, so that it has to fold in half just before landing, to fit on a large landing pad
      3. A distribution of attitude thrusters that would only allow clockwise rolling (for reference, the mailslot rolls counter clockwise when approached from outside)

Community Corner

  1. Buckyball
  2. E.D.I.S.O.N. has been updated to version 5.2 (beta)!
    1. Navigation now works while on foot.
    2. Surface Waypoints (Public Output)
  3. Min ED Launcher
    2. How to set it up…
      1. Copy MinEdLauncher.exe to your game folder
      2. Make a shortcut to “MinEdLauncher”
      3. In the “Target” add your arguments
        1. “F:\Program Files (x86)\Frontier\EDLaunch\MinEdLauncher.exe” 
        2. /frontier [Profile_Name] – this can be anything but it corresponds to a profile name saved to localAppData
        3. /edo – Play Odyssey (/edh or /edh4 are appropriate alternative arguments)
        4. /autorun – Just go right in to ED
        5. /autoquit – Quit the launcher
        6. /vr – Play in VR
        7. “F:\Program Files (x86)\Frontier\EDLaunch\MinEdLauncher.exe” /frontier [Profile_Name] /edo /autorun /autoquit /vr
      4. Then you can make a copy / move your shortcut to where you want it (i.e. your Windows Start menu)

  1. Hey all,

    I saw the min-ed-launcher repo got some traffic from this episode so I thought I’d check it out. Thanks for trying it out. I’d be happy to answer any questions you might have about it.

    • Heya I’ve sent you an email, since I’ll be away for the next week and email is better for me (and discord even better)

      Eid / Ben
