    Commander Creator

    Commander Creator - PAX East 2017 - Elite Dangerous

    The Commander Creator is a sophisticated human modeler designed for the creation of an avatar with the player in mind. The modeler was created to provide a similar experience to the well known character creators in the Bethesda series of games. in the same vein as the character generators in The Elder Scrolls series and the Bethesda creations of the Fallout Series. One can change almost any detail on one’s own character and they’ve made some really good ones -

    Multicrew - PAX East 2017 - Elite Dangerous

    The really exciting bit about the upcoming patch is the addition of multi-crew! Now one can hop into various roles on a ship, which include:

    Helm - The captain and helmsman of the ship. This is always the owner of the ship. This position holds control over the navigation of the ship, synthesis and the distribution of power. However, each member of the crew gains a pip that they can contribute to power distribution.

    Gunner - Controls all the turreted weapons of a ship and can launch missiles at targets. This position uses a third person camera to engage enemy targets. Using the camera, one can also activate the extra scanners that one can purchase and add to the ship, i.e. the kill warrant scanner.

    Fighter Con - This position can launch and control one fighter by personally “manning” it and protecting the “mothership.” Depending on the ship and the number of players, it is possible for a secondary NPC or PC fighter to be launched. It should be noted that it is possible to continue this to at least 2 playable hanger bay ships plus an NPC Fighter for a total of 3 ship defending the mothership, but this is only possible if there are enough players onboard. One can switch between these roles, but the helmsman is always the helmsman.

    It should be noted that any bounties and vouchers earned by the helmsman are duplicated to each crewmember! No more slicing up the bounties and having to share them!

    Camera Suite and Free Camera
    A camera suite has been added, replacing the debug camera, that allows commanders to have better views for screenshots and movie making!
