  • Elite: Dangerous News and Newsletters

    So since the game is no longer in Beta, I will be posting the newsletters here from now on.

    First up is this newsletter!

    I wasn't going to post this one since it pretty much just says, "Hey we released the game!" Duh! But I guess I should put it up for consistencies and posterities sake.

          Important update to Elite: Dangerous!

          Originally posted by Michael Brookes on the Frontier Forums
          Hi everyone,

          update 1.04 is incoming and everyone will be removed from the server at 2.30 pm GMT while we apply the update and make the new client available. Here is the change log for the update:

          - If a station somehow loses it's parent then move it to another body so players at that station can load
          - Prevent inconsistencies between client and server in which parts of a sector are and are not occupied
          - Some fixes to meta-data that were being disguised by an issue with inconsistent generation
          - When deciding if we should go hostile to a faction we just shot, consider whether the target has a local bounty rather than a bounty with their own faction. Prevent people being attacked by the police after attack nearby wanted targets
          - Fix only the first consequence being applied to the universe state when completing a mission
          - Set killer before we do ship death - fixes problem with players not getting bounties or reputation when they kill other players by breaking critical modules
          - Reduce likelihood of server disconnects from stellar forge server queries
          - Fix mouse control if galaxy map opened with key binding when in outfitting
          - Updated exoplanets Kepler 438 b and 442 b
          - Add produced by and consumbed by information to all trade goods (except rares)
          - Telemetry added to try and figure out why some machines are failing to load resource files
          - Remove the terraforming data for Pareco system causing an assert
          - Fix packet loss statistics
          - Use the correct absolute magnitude in bolometric luminosity calculations
          - Various text fixes

          There are some online changes as well which Andy will post in his update, but one change is worth mentioning here - there should be an improvement in matchmaking that should mean you are more likely to see other players if they are in the same region as you.

          Edit: The downtime should be less than 30 minutes.

          Thanks!

          Michael

            Newsletter #57 has been released. [link]

            In this one:
            1. 1.04 is the first of a series of bug fix patches that are planned for release
            2. The developers are back so they are going to continue to develop the game
            3. They are growing the developing team to help with the paid expansions and patches
              Originally posted by E:D Newsletter
              The regular updates won’t just be the ongoing fixes and tweaking we’ve provided since release - we will also add new features and content for all.

              The first examples of this, that we already talked about last year, are 'Wings' and associated multiplayer features and additional ships.
            4. They've added the new exo-planets that Kepler has discovered
            5. The usual Galnet news and Comms Chatter

                Re: Elite: Dangerous News and Newsletters

                On the Elite: Dangerous forums, they've just released what is basically a timeline for the upcoming patches and "wings."[link]

                Major patches are coming soon, but "wings" will probably not come out until maybe early March, and then that will probably be when beta users can have access to it. But they also mention that having access to the betas will be purchasable soon. I'm kind of mad that'll take so long, but I guess if they wanna get it right, spending more time on it is probably the best option.

                              In this one:
                              • They give some more tidbits about the "wings" update.
                              • Peek of the Week shows the wings hud

                              *Unless otherwise requested, I am going to stop reporting on these unless they seem important. If someone wants to start a thread on GalNet etc, I can sticky it for you. Otherwise, since it is in every newsletter I am not going to report on it since it is quite obvious that the newsletter contains those items.
