Main discussion

  1. Shall we just have a bit of banter about Update 15?
    1. Is the Titan a mothership/ hive ship, or is it a portal to witchspace or the thargoid homeworld?
    2. Glaves hyper-dicting, have they appeared in any CZs next?
    3. Any thoughts on what Arf meant by “you’ll have to find it for yourselves”?

Mostly Clueless

  1. Alec: There’s been a lot of FUD surrounding whether the system map accurately reflects the current day/night situation on planets (e.g. if you want to pick settlement missions that are in daylight). It was definitely wrong but thanks to some science in the Buur Pit I can confirm that it’s pretty much exactly 180° out so if you fly to a settlement that’s shown as being in the dark in the system map then it should be in daylight and vice versa, and a settlement on the day/night terminator should pretty much still be on the terminator.
