Main Discussion

  • We have five to maybe seven smaller updates until 2020. Speculation on what they could be.

Community Corner

  • Sarah Cmdr Symyoulater has a plan  to raise awareness for Trans issues through participation in iRacing Leagues. This is the most respected Simulation for motorsports and includes drivers such as Max Verstappen and Lando Norris. She needs your donations to help her to bring her story to a wider audience and break some stereotypes along the way.
    • Your donations will be used to pay the fees to enter these Leagues.
    • If you can spare a pound or so please send her your support
    • Also support her twitch channel where you should be able to see these races.
    • Hmm Pound it out for Trans Issues? <- is that an ok slogan?  – Psykokow
  • Hacking Protest at Jameson Memorial
  • Full Stream
    • On Sunday 2nd June Cmdr Nick Naylor in a Beluga called “The Community of Elite” protested cheats in Elite Dangerous, and the lack of apparent action by Frontier. By… cheating.
    • Protest Started about 20:00 BST
    • ~ 21:45 he was pushed out of the mailslot by a determined Commander in an Imperial Cutter
    • 21:49 he did a cheat, insta-high-wake from right next to the mailslot to another system (Nuenets)
    • At no point did he take offensive action against players.
    • He has turned on invulnerability and other things and is wedged  inside the mailslot of Jameson Memorial in Shinrata Dhezra. He’s getting shot by players AND the station with no effect…
    • After the protest, he agreed to voice comms with Cmdr Plater
      • Sounds very humble
      • Fully accepts the loss of his Cmdr in to which he’s invested > 2000 hrs of game play
    • Aftermath… CMDR Exigeous & CelticSpartan01
      • UPDATE: Nick will be joining CMDR Exigeous on stream Tuesday June 4th at 8 PM GMT (Midnight GMT)

        For those that didn’t see yesterday CMDR Nick Naylor, a vetran player of 2000+ hours put his account on the line by staging a protest yesterday.  CMDR Plater streamed this – he used the hacks to block the mail slot of a station with a Beluga. Frontier has, appropriately, banned him – yet his first action resulted in a permanent where others get 3 days first, 1 month second and then permanent.  The inconsistency should infuriate ALL players – WELL DONE TO NICK FOR TAKING THIS STEP!
  • Cannon Does some Science on the Advanced Multi Cannons
    • A two-component damage model was used to estimate the damage partitioning of the newly developed AMCs.  It was found that, when configured with AX ammunition, the AMCs deal 100% AX damage. That fact was leveraged to get a handle on the AX resistance of human technology. It was found that human shields have an AX resistance of 95% and human armor plating has a resistance of 90%.  By corollary, other facts about about the AMC were confirmed, such as damage per shot and Armor Piercing.
