Lave Radio Breaks Elite Dangerous.. A new error code cursed players on Wednesday and it’s all Lave Radio’s fault
“Public reaction” to patch:
Alec Turner 1) giving a uniform model for cosmetic purchasing across all three platforms 2) allowing the store to be more easily integrated into the heart of the game by taking technical/legal coding complexities around actual financial transactions out of the equation 3) alleviating the not insignificant overhead of individual fees for numerous small financial transactions which make paying small amounts for things with credit cards not cost effective for Frontier (which thereby enables the purchase of individual paintjobs rather than whole packs a viable option)

To take part all you need to do tell us your fondest memory about Frontier games, events or moments on any one of the below social media posts – or here on the forums. So, whether that’s a memory of docking for the first time in the very original Elite, releasing your first raptor in Jurassic World Evolution, or hearing Peter Sallis reprising his role in Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo.
Frontier expects to report revenue of approximately £64 million for the period compared to £19 million recorded in the interim results last year.
Based on trading performance in the first six months of the financial year, combined with sales over the Christmas holiday period, the Board remain comfortable with the analyst revenue projections of £75 million to £88 million for FY19 (the year ending 31 May 2019) and anticipate that revenue should exceed the mid-point of this range.
Elite Dangerous has exceeded 3 million base game units. Previously the Company has reported “franchise units” for Elite Dangerous whereby the Elite Dangerous: Horizons expansion, sold at the same price as the base game, was also counted as one unit. The Company has now simplified unit reporting to state gross unit sales of the base game only. For comparative purposes cumulative franchise units for Elite Dangerous are now over 4.3 million.
The development of Frontier’s fourth game franchise is on track, with release targeted for FY20 (between 1 June 2019 and 31 May 2020).

IDA reports the repair bug which has been plaguing their efforts in the Pleiades has been fixed and so are redoubling their efforts to take repair.
Anti-Xeno-League and Cannon have reported that the Eagle Eye Network is pointing at Deciat, Large amount of Non Human USS’s have been spotted in the system. However, the AGEIS Megaships are nowhere near it, so the High Paying Thargoid Massacre missions won’t count in the defense of Deciat. If we lose this system, do we lose the Engineer as well as the station?
Cmdr Drakins from the East India Company for helping us stockpile Lavian Brandy on Monday whilst LRN was between Lockdown and Civil Unrest.
“Certain Alliance factions” who don’t like LRN having Lave are actively murdering our ships which is causing these states. We’re doing what we can to counter it, but they seem to be insisting on locking Lave Station down, removing the brandy and stopping ppl from unlocking Didi Vatermann in Leesti.
On Monday as we were between states we helped to resupply the EIC and if listeners need brandy to unlock the engineer whilst supplies are low then contact Cmdr Eid LeWeise or Cmdr Whoeva in game and we can help you out.
EIC have asked us to let commanders know that most trades will take place within 24-48 hours depending on the availability of the goods and our traders.

Initial Message was put together from some binary hidden inside of the gamescom clips. “We’ve found something. Something incredible. Something the whole galaxy will want to see. The truth The truth. We could show it to you, that wouldn’t be much fun so instead we’re going to play a little game. To find us, look for a bounty hunter. To find more clues you’ll need pre-logistics support in a system with one star, two belts, three rings, and enough radiation to turn you green. The hunt begins on the 28th.”
Born out of the August Exodus – A Jaunt to Jaques expedition of July/August 3302, The CCN Discord communication hub is a place for those dedicated to working in and around the Colonia Nebula, helping to establish and protect the first human colony beyond frontier borders. It is hoped that this communication hub will help bring together the fledgling community and encourage CG cooperation, joint ventures, projects, provide entertainment, and be a great source of information on all developing colonial affairs.

Vingtetun: @everyone Ladies and gentlemen, the Hutton Truckers are delighted to announce that after 5 months of battling the BGS, of blocking states and bugs and uneccesary wars we are the proud owners of a space station with a large pad. With CB gaining 8 percent a day it has taken a superhuman effort to keep them down. Some of those superhumans are Paladins. You have our thanks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yS-rbMo9Qds Some audio we can maybe play?
HCS Voicepacks and Hutton Truckers are hopeful to bring a passenger pack for your voice attack (ask Grant)
James Beaumont on Facebook This folks, is our known Galaxy. Every white dot is a system that has been found. The purple dot at the bottom is Sol, Sag A* in the middle. The yellow dot to the left is my current position, 15000Ly from Sol. That same dot on the seond picture, taken from the horizontal centre shows the height/depth of the ‘known’ systems. My dot is a mere 900Ly above the horizontal. So for all those that say there is nothing to do in ED, I’d say there is plenty to be done! Generated using EDDiscovery
Colin will be doing the usual X-Box Horizons Stream on a friday at 11:00 pm.
Snuffler: with the recent recanting of Elite lore, does this mean the Krait Never existed?
Steph: The Betel Free, based at Amphipolis in the Betel system, have largely been a “one commander band”. Recently it looks as though there may be new recruits to the cause. If you are one such CMDR, please can you get in touch with CMDR Xena via the Lave Radio Discord Channel because the faction may become “player run” and it would be good to include everyone who has an interest.

In game news
Poor Ishmael Palin (the prominent Barnicle expert) so far has been attacked by pirates, kidnapped and finally rescued. However his bad luck has continued as he’s now contracted the Cerberus Plague. You’d think someone has it in for him, he’s having so much bad luck. 😉
The campaign from the Canonn Interstellar Research Group to establish a new research outpost in the Col 285 Sector IX-T d3-43 system has been successful. A new outpost will be constructed ‘soon’ which will help with more research into the UA.
A rogue Farragut Battle Cruiser somewhere? There were reports last week of a Federal Battle Cruiser with Pirate markings in the LHS 3447.
Speaking of Farragut Battle Cruisers, the construction of the Latest Cruiser in the Beti Hydri system has the Empire worried. If more cruisers are constructed, sources close to Admiral Denton Patreus say that the empire might have to respond in kind.
In response to the New Battle Cruiser and rhetoric coming from the Empire; the Alliance has held a diplomatic summit at the Alliance Capital looking at possible responses.
Main Discussion – DDF Lazerus
Default In-game choices to be made by the DDF
“It’s been a long time, but we are finally able to move towards some of the things we discussed during the Kickstarter with respect to the DDF and the ability of members to decide together on significant actions within the game. There are some big events coming to the game later this year (in relation to an alien species – trying to minimise spoilers here!), and members will decide where these events first take place, and how the process moves on down the line. This will be by voting on the DDF forum with a choice of possible locations. As the events unfold, there will be further such choices going forwards.”
