Development News – what have the devs said this week?

  1. Patch 2 came in – Solved a few problems, caused a few more;-
    1. Positive.
      1. Changes to the store icon on the Station Menu Screen (less obtrusive and immersion breaking).
      2. Fixed the clipper ship kit issues and lots of other soft locks.
      3. Fixed a lot of Scarlet Kriat, Magenta Krait, Yellow Adder and Black Adder Errors.
    2. Negative
      1. Softlock Error on the Mission Board (Workaround issued)
      2. Setting Module Power Priority (This appears to have gotten worse).
  2. Voices from the Void Stream – Paige takes us through the process of how these scripts are created, inserted into the game and then performed (with a nice bit of improve at the end).
  3. Possible Interstellar Initiative – Fresh Food has disappeared from the Agricultural Markets around the old worlds (Unknown if it’s affecting all Agricultural worlds). Reidquat prices for the new fertiliser is skyrocketing (Soylent Green anyone)? What’s caused the Harvest failure? Is it;-
    1.  some kind of virus that the cmdrs unknowingly have transferred between worlds?
    2. A thargoid attack after we starved them out in the Witch Head’s Nebula?
    3. Some kind of Coordinated attack – For more information on how this could be done See Allen Stroud’s most excellent Lave Revolution Book and Audio Book, just one click away on AMAZON.
    4. TRUMBLES!!!!!!
  4. Frontier Tweeted Happy Monday, Commanders! We’re currently hard at work on Patch 03 for the September Update, which we expect to release for all platforms towards the end of this week! Check back later this week for the Patch Notes, confirmed date and estimated downtime.

  • Elite AID “Bushfire”

    East India Company are proud to present Elite Aid. This is to be a 24 hour long event starting at 23:00 UTC on 10/18/2019. During the event we will host a continuous live stream staffed by members from a variety of gaming groups. All proceeds will be donated to support the ongoing efforts in the Queensland bushfire emergencies.

    Lave Radio has a slot from 08:00 – 10:00 UTC

    Cmdr Icarus Smith who’s been on the show’s house was yards from being destroyed “my closest 5 neighbours are piles of ash”
    Please note this is NOT JustGiving because myCause is a top crowd-funding site in Aus and the only one which has a direct donation link to the Queensland Volunteer Rural Fire Brigades Donation Fund.

    The Rural Fire Service (RFS) is the volunteer arm of the QFES operating in rural, semi-rural and urban fringe areas where there is no urban fire service coverage. The RFS consists of approximately 35,000 volunteers from approximately 1,500 rural fire brigades across the state.
  • In Related news: Cmdr Gosht who’s been on the show and is a core member of HIVE lost his house, his dog, Titus, and just about everything in an unexpected (but unrelated to the bushfires), house fire.

    To help give him a slight smile, the Anti Xeno community  will be meeting up at SYNUEFE KU-F B44-4 to collect some Ancient keys from the Guardian Beacon on Friday the 11th, at 21:00 UTC. An Hour later the fleet will head toward HIP 14909 Planet 2 A  and use the Ancient Keys to spell out a message for Cmdr Gosht 
  • Frontier are about to start a new series of “Full Throttle” livestreams dedicated to RACING!

    To kick things off, this Thursday Alec Turner will be on the show with Will and Stephen to chat a bit about the Buckyball Racing club and to guide them around our new race “Full Throttle at Pareco”. Full details of the race (which is on NOW) can be found here:

Show Notes

  • Development News
  • In Game Events
    • Ed and Will go Thargoid Hunting
    • Anti Xeno Initiative – We failed completely last week. Both systems are burning. Anti Xeno Command asks all commanders to redouble their efforts, Ignore the Missions from the AEGIS Megaships and just hit the scouts in the systems of Dhanhopi – Plucker Enterprise (199 ls) and Bok – Landsteiner Orbital (931 ls).
      • If Dhanhopi falls, could Alioth be next? It’s only 28Ly away…
    • IDA – (Thanks to Factabulous for these) Summary: Artemis Lodge – completed, Operation IDA has moved, as the figures show, to Kamov. Cavalieri and Eyharts seem also to have reasonable support, with small contributions elsewhere. Parise (in Tembala) has turned up in the figures this week, expect more as the Thargoids continue their success in recent weeks.
    • PvP Fight Night on the Thursday the 2nd of August.
      Where: HR 1183 / Arc’s Faith in OPEN PLAYWhen: August 2nd 7:00 PST

      Allowed Ships:
      Diamondback Scout
      Cobra Mk. III and Mk. IV
      Viper Mk. III and Mk. IV
      Asp Scout
      Imperial Courier

      Outfitting: Can be done anywhere!
      Engineering: Is not a requirement but a HEAVY recommendation, especially hull from Selene Jean
      Guardian Weapons: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
      Buy location: Anywhere!

      Other notes:
      If you would like, you can sit far off to the side in ship with a fighter bay and be a resupply ship.
      You should also prepare to be harassed by xeno sympathizers. They have already heard about this event and they are probably rallying the troops as we speak.

      We may need ships in super cruise to watch out for those nasty Xeno allies and deal with them quickly and kindly. The day will also most likely be a mentoring day for our new commanders.

    • EDDI 3.0.1 released
      • EDDI is a Windows desktop program that can run either standalone or as a VoiceAttack plug-in. Actions like jumping to a new system, buying and selling commodities, entering a signal source, scanning a celestial object, and many more will trigger voice responses. EDDI uses the journal log and the Frontier companion API to obtain information and track your actions.When used as a VoiceAttack plug-in, the events that EDDI recognizes can be used to generate VA commands. For example, you can have VA automatically stow your landing gear when you undock.
      • 3.0.1 adds a much improved cargo monitor, localization support, and many fixes and improvements.
