Lavecon Tickets – 3rd and 4th of July. “The first batch of Gold/Platinum tickets have sold out. There is likely to be a second batch of Gold/Platinum as well as Gold camping coming once I have sorted all the volunteer places. There is a waiting list for these also. The Bronze/Silver tickets won’t sell out, so don’t panic buy these if you want a different ticket. Do get in contact via email with any questions or to go on the waiting list for Gold/Platinum.”
Star Citizen 3.13 PTU has finally dropped bringing in their version of Ship Launched Fighters, Ship to Station Docking for very large ships, an improved Reputation System, improved shields (including fixing the holes in some shields!) and new Planetary Tech, including Cave based Bounty Hunting… Oh and Trolleys…

Operation IDA – Has almost finished Kipling Orbital , Will be selecting a new target next week.
AXI – With HIP 9141 was hit last week, the targets are Wayutabal – Kaiser Terminal, Negrito – Steakley Station and Iota Pictoris A – Barmin Dock. Hydra’s can be found in Celaeno and Merope. The Ageis Mega ships are in the Ngaiawang and Opet for some high paying scout killing missions. Rumours are that the thargoid kill count is still 5000 in order to save a system.
The Hutton Truckers are hosting one of their Hutton Races again, and it’s on a planet named…. Teide! In the Magec System (It’s actually Teide A). Up a mountain on a volcanic planet as a race for single players and teams,
Magec System, planet – Teide A

The citizens of Colonia have been working hard to build their new home, and now it’s time they got a reward, regardless of what Customs might like to think. So with the aid of The East India Company and publicity via Lave Radio, an expedition was put together with the following goals:* Explore the “high route” to Colonia. Away from the well-trodden route via the Colonia Connection, the high route is replete with unexplored neutron stars and far away from Customs patrols, making it just ideal for the long-distance smuggler and highly profitable for the explorers.* Bring the first load of booty – anything intoxicating, but in particular Onionhead and Lavian Brandy for Colonia citizens to enjoy, to resupply Jaques Bar – sneaking it into Jaques Station, past Colonia’s most watchful customs presence…* Be in Colonia just in time for the Q4 Exploration updates! Get a head start on the new exploration mechanics! Get on one of the very last expeditions where “jonking” is still a thing!
The expedition begins on Tuesday November 20th, with a loading party at Harvestport, Kappa Fornacis and at Lave Station, Lave. The lead ship will be the Alan Mathison Turing, an Imperial Cutter fit out for long distance smugg…err, trading.
Fascinating show, especially the bit about detecting bots by the way they do it. Amazing.One thought. FD say the BGS is a background simulation. It’s not the same a ‘the rules to play by’ (as in chess).The BGS as I see it is an alternative to having a fixed ‘gamey’ set of rules that break the simulation aspect… It should FEEL random and it should present challenges to live around without FD having to manually alter things weekly.
People that game the BGS are not living the simulation, they are manipulating it. That’s not ‘simulation’.FD are likely to loosen the predictable links of the BGS in due course, but if as your speaker said, many BGS gamers are being driven away by the BOTS then it occurs to me that such might be it’s purpose……
If so, expect bots to affect the systems most actively managed. It doesn’t matter if they help or hinder, all it matters is to create the feeling in ‘gamers’ that (this) life cannot be gamed……
Enjoyed the pod.

People have speculated guardian tech forms the basis of anti-thargoid weapons. Noticed similarity of blue glow. Shape of object inside the warhead and also shape of Thargoid Anti shutdown device.
Are FD going reduce engineering RNG?
Can’t say, but look at FD Expo
What is the T10?

Powerplay Unpledge Notice – Due to the changes coming in with Powerplay and consensual PvP, Any cmdr with 0 merits assigned against them on the 26th will be unpledged from their power. This is to stop people who haven’t ‘Powerplayed’ for a time not to be seen as fair game by PvP’s. There is nothing stopping you re-pledging after the 26th but if you have a single merit, you will remain pledged and therefore seen as fair game for any PvP players in Open and the Private Groups. So, if you want to PvP, go Powerplay!
Good thread and some good posts re the future of exploring along with a lot of “that ship has sailed”
ED-RPG – Backers can collect their books (and dice) from the expo on 7th Oct.
Anyone who is interested should email firstname.lastname@example.org with the email address they used to back us with and the name they opted to go for in the credits.
Mobius PVE group – There appears to be a little confusion about PvP rules within Combat Zones in the PVE group raised by the present CG. At the moment, you can fire on other players in a CZ if they are on the other side. However constant player killing in the CZs is frowned upon and if you keep on killing Cmdrs, you will get banned. Due to the number of incidents of ‘Not so Friendly Fire’, they are thinking about a blanket PvP Ban, even in CZs. We’ll let you know what they decide.
