The egg to be patched Wednesday?

Friday 10th July, 2020 · Posted by Roguey · Comment 0 comments
A recent controversial subject in Elite Dangerous is the amount of money you can earn by mining Low Temperature Diamonds; in particular the ablity to respawn asteroids. This is done by placing a fighter 25km+ away from the main ship, then teleport between the two to respawn the asteroid (this will in-turn restock all the surface deposits). One asteroid has been named by the community as the Egg, due to how easy it is to find and has 4 surface deposits. Although any asteroid can be used, even with 1 surface deposit.

Frontier did try to address the problem a week or so ago but all they did was to add a 2-3 hour cooldown peroid if you leave the instance. Otherwise the asteroid can still be respawned as many times as you like still. If you have a friend, you can hold the instance open as long as you want.

This might be fixed soon, Frontier are preparing to release a new patch on Wednesday (next week). We dont have the patch notes yet (they will be landing on Monday) but im sure that top of the list is the fighter reset.

Commanders to can make some serious amount of money now. This isnt a bad thing but feel that other parts of the game should have their profits boosted. For exmaple combat is high risk but also low reward.

Fleet carriers have also been causing some problems too; according to other sites there are more carriers in the game than stations now. When new Low Temperature Diamonds location comes up the system is often swamped with Fleet carriers.

Frontier announce Odyssey

Wednesday 3rd June, 2020 · Posted by Roguey · Comment 2 comments
An odd thing happened today on the official channel; for a very short peroid of time today, a video when public showing space-legs. Frontier have been pretty quiet about future addons - Horizons was released back in 2015!

The trailer shows some early in-game footage of Cobra Mk3 landing on a planet (which looks amazing), two commanders walking around on the planet, then sneaking up-to an Anaconda with a couple of laser kind-of looking rifles. It appears to say that the new addon will be called Odyssey, and should be released early 2021.

Shortly afterwards the video was taken down. This hasnt stopped people from uploading to youtube afterwards. A little later, and its now been officially confirmed, seen here. Below is the official video for Odyssey;




ps. Im glad to see some big news for Elite; its been too long!



Engineering ships

Tuesday 31st March, 2020 · Posted by Roguey · Comment 0 comments
For the past week or so ive been working on the ablity to add engineered modules to the Elite Dangerous ship section. Originally I thought it might take a day or two but keep pushing it back - thinking ill do that later (you know what its like). Anyway, I finally got around to it, and you can now add engineered ship modules to the ship section. The share-link and ship builds have also been updated; so you can share your builds (with engineered modules) with others. You can also update any existing builds to include engineered modules. I think the stats are all correct but if you do notice something wrong, please let me know. I hope it helps;
