Greetings Commanders!

I'd like to introduce you to something new. Below is our first Top 20 Issues table, summarising the highest voted issues on the Issue Tracker. As part of being open and honest about the game's development, we'll be regularly posting updated versions of this table and discussing it on our Supercruise News streams.

Note: the status and planned release of each issue is subject to change as various factors affect the ongoing development schedule.



Top 20 Issues:

[LIST=1]
[*]Problems With Lighting and Illumination: We're happy to say this is now fixed since Update 6, having spent some time to monitor it afterwards. Any new issues to do with lighting should now be reported on the Issue Tracker as normal.


[*]Degraded Terrain Te... Read more

Greetings Commanders!


First of all, thank you for your feedback on Update 6! We're hard at work reporting all the feedback you've given us to the development team, and we're also working on the top-voted issues in the Issue Tracker. With that in mind, we'd like to request some assistance from Commanders who are experiencing the following issues:

Getting stuck on a loading screen when entering a Ship Launched Fighter
https://issues.frontierstore.net/issue-detail/37149

Engineer Jude Navarro not unlocking after completing missions
https://issues.frontierstore.net/issue-detail/33413

We have been unable to reproduce the above issues internally, so we require some assistance from the Elite community. If you experience these issues, please head over to the linked Issue Tracker page... Read more

Greetings Commanders.

It's noted that there's been some discussion on fines bounties and notoriety (particularly in Odyssey now Commanders are on foot, carrying out some deeds) across these Forums.

I can confirm that no major changes or updates should have happened in the "Criminal Activity field" as part of Update 6, but it does concern me that some elements of Crime are sparking conversation and confusion, following update 6.

With this in mind I'd like to release this post to share more targeted info on how crime works as Elite Dangerous currently stands. This could potentially help those who are new to the game, or be used to open up an additional space for further thoughts and discussions with the veterans :)

Once again, thank you to all involved in the brainstorming of issues and quality of life requests to help improve the Camera Suite for Elite Dangerous: Odyssey.
With so many areas of Odyssey to cover right now, we haven't been able to implement all of the top requested tweaks as part of our forthcoming Update 6, but we are excited to have taken this healthy step in what we hope is the right direction for a more optimal experience.
We will naturally continue to listen to feedback further as time goes on...I'm just glad we got to tackle the 'Signal Lost' issue for you, at the very least right now!

I tell you what, let's do this in the style of my favourite things in the whole wide world (second to Commanders) - Update Notes.

Greetings Commanders,

With the end of July closing in on us faster than a getaway Mamba with illegal cargo, we wanted to share our second monthly developer update with you now.

As mentioned in David Braben’s recent post, we have adjusted our planning to retain our development focus on the PC version of Odyssey before revisiting our plans for console. This change in planning will mean we are able to deliver more bug fixes, performance improvements, as well as some new features and content.

Issue Tracker

Similar to last month, we would like to update you on key issues as voted for by our community on the Issue Tracker. You can visit the Issue Tracker and vote for your top issues or make a report.

At approximately 11:30 UTC / 12:30 BST today, we will deploy a server side update to address an issue where there were no Passenger Missions available at burning stations.
Some of the stations in question, as an example, were Donar's Oak and Arc's Faith.

This server update requires no extended downtime, but a brief reset for Odyssey players only.

Thank you! o7!

This afternoon we have...rather stealthily...implemented the following fixes:
[LIST]
[*]There was previously an issue whereby Commanders could not aim down the sight of their modified shotguns. This has now been fixed.
[LIST]
[*]I've included the reason why we were able to address this issue via the server, just incase you fancied some insight: [SPOILER="Dev Magic"]The server is able to detect and fix inventory when players fetch their save data. In this instance, we are able to add the default sights to shotguns which unfortunately didn't have them in this instance.[/SPOILER]
[/LIST]
[*]The rescue ship for attacked station Kipling Orbital in Pleiades Sector KC-V c2-11 was incorrectly positioned in the middle of a planet, rendering it undockable.
[LIST]
[*]This has now been fixed. Commanders will now be able to get that docking request granted! [SPOILER="Dev Magic"]The ship was able to be repositioned... Read more

Greetings Commanders. Hope you've had a great week.

Here to update you on a stealthy little server side fix rolling out for you this afternoon (at approximately 15:30 UTC/16:30 BST, give or take 15 mins or so) regarding instances of an incorrect loss of commodities taking place when handing in support missions.

[ISSUE]
[LIST]
[*]Commanders would sign up to multiple support missions, which require the delivery of commodities, at a station of their choosing.
[*]They would then complete their missions and return to the station of origin to hand them in.
[*]Commanders would then go ahead and turn in the first completed mission to find that their commodities required for the remaining completed mission would be...well they would just disappear.
[/LIST]
Thankfully, as soon as this fix is deployed (some time from 15:30 UTC/16:30 BST onwards today)... Read more

It's time to wrap up the week with some amazing Commander Creations! We've got a strong LEGO lineup this week, which is always good in my books! Without further ado, your creations:

1/150 Scale LEGO Anaconda



This beauty is one of the best LEGO Elite creations I've ever seen! Unfortunately, the user has deleted their Reddit account so we can't give credit! If you're the Commander responsible for this, please reach out so we can give you credit! Either way, this is a stunning piece of work, and a great conversation starter in your home!

Greetings Commanders,

As part of Update 6 we deployed a fix to return all abandoned crew that you may have lost, due to an issue in Odyssey's rebuy process.
This issue would cause NPC crew, requested to be re-hired, to instead be abandoned.

[HEADING=2]How Will This Fix Affect Me?[/HEADING]
[LIST]
[*]During Update 6 downtime we returned all abandoned crew to players which would have triggered a message in your in-game inbox.
[*]This may leave some players with more than 3 hired crew, all of whom will resume claiming their salary from the player's income.
[*]To mitigate this we have imposed a temporary cap to the combined crew salary at 45% of player earnings.
[*]The temporary income cap will be raised to 100%, 4 weeks after the update, so any players who still have more than 3 crew will receive an inbox message reminder that they are still taking their cut.
[/LIST]

It's a fun conspiracy theory the "All negative feedback is being silenced" but like most conspiracy theories it can be dispelled with just a small amount of investigation. Looking around the forums it should be quite clear that having a negative opinion does not get you banned. Anyone is welcome to share negative feedback, so long as it is constructive.

The only people having action taken against them are those breaking the rules, either by being disruptive to others, toxic or choosing to harass staff/individuals/teams. If someone is worried whether their comment might cross a line perhaps they should read it back as if it was being directed to them personally. Does it still come across as constructive and not aggressive?

It might be cathartic to go "RAAGH! YOU DO A LIE!" but there is very little we can do with that kind of "feedback".

It's that time of the week where we dive into the creative side of our community - and share some of their creations with the rest of the galaxy! Let's get straight into this week's Commander Creations:

Ian Baristan is always impressing us with his 3D Model work for Sagittarius Eye Magazine, and he has delivered once again with this atmospheric shot of a Condor entering the docking bay. Stunning!

Greetings Commanders.

The Elite Dangerous servers for all platforms, Horizons and Odyssey will be offline imminently to accomodate for necessary, additional server maintenance.
We will keep you informed of progress.

Apologies for any inconvenience.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Casual 'Sally Edit':

A couple of you asked kindly whether you could have more info on the second hop into maintenance mode and do you know what? That's a very valid question and I'm more than happy to help. In all fairness I should have added this to the post to begin with, but the time was SO SHORT between the heads up and servers offline that I wanted to quickly let you know incase it ruined your session.

Anyway! More info!

For Interest: Light information on reason for slight extension of maintenance.

o7 Commanderinos,

I don't know about you, but I need a bit of a distraction from this monstrosity of heat in the UK right now, so let's talk some Elite!

What are your plans in-game for the week? What are you enjoying at the moment? What's not so great?

Got any feedback or suggestions for me? Any FA-OFF advice? Stream ideas?

I'm particularly interested in knowing the ship you recommend learning FA-OFF in, something cheap please!


I'm all ears for the next couple of hours!



Edit: I'm signing off for the day, folks! Thanks for the chat!
