Greetings Commanders!

A new week is reaching its denouement and our characters in this theatrical performance must soon take their bow. So let us cast aside the scripts we have been given and recite from memory the events of this production. It's round up time!

I hope you don't mind the flavour change this afternoon, but it's been a little while since we released new suits in the online store for you all so I thought I might share a heads up on them here.

Introducing the 'Vintage Reflect' Suits!
A fresh looking take on the Vintage fit you've all been used to seeing so far.

The 'Vintage Reflect' comes in 3 colourations bundled together for a total of 16,520 ARX.

Greetings Commanders,

Along with Update 14.02, as many of you are aware, there came some changes to AX combat bond reward values.

We're aware that this information was not provided as either update notes, nor did it come with prior warning ahead of the release, for which we truly apologise.
This was a genuine oversight and it was never our intention to cause disrespect to those of you engaged in current efforts around the Galaxy.

With that being said, the design team would like to share with you some further insight into reasoning behind the value adjustments to combat bond rewards for Thargoid defeats.

Of course it's not drama, we don't criticize payment reduction, it's not very important, but we speak about to not mention it in patch notes. Disrespect to the players, that's it.


No disrespect was at all intended, I can personally assure you.

Feedback will be taken exceptionally seriously tomorrow and I’ll personally look into what has occurred with these reductions.

Welcome to another week of humanity trying to figure out what its purpose is in the universe, and what fruitless activity we can undertake to find some meaning in our fleeting mortal lives. The galaxy continues to be beset by rampaging aliens who base their engine sounds on stubbing your little toe, and the political factions continue to try and find any solution other than actually working together. Here's a round up of just what's been going on this week!

That's right!

Commander voices have been heard amidst continued combat efforts...


A new, improved xeno scanner has been released, gracing those who will benefit from an extended range of up to 2 km!

More information can be found via GalNet.
www.elitedangerous.com/news/galnet/xeno-scanner-upgrade

[HR][/HR]

Happy to report that the new scanner* is now available from military, high-tech and industrial planetary bases, as well as rescue megaships.

*To be absolutely clear, this is, as I say, a >new< scanner. This is not an upgrade to your current scanner.


Best of luck out there, Commanders.

A little later than usual with the push out of Discovery Scanner this week! A few last little nuggets of information were required but here we are, back in the Galaxy for another week of Elite discoveries.

Lighter on community news but a little more impactful with game news - we have an announced deployment date for the "January Update", now titled 14.02!

You'll find the latest information here and more in the article itself, here: https://www.elitedangerous.com/news/discovery-scanner-23012023

GalNet released an alert yesterday, stating that the Class 3 experimental weapon stabiliser is now available, following Azimuth Biotech’s delivery initiative in LHS 1163.

Unfortunately it seems as though deliveries of the new product have, in some instances for a number of Commanders, been delayed in transit and we'll update on progress regarding this issue as the day progresses.

Rest assured, "Azimuth Biotech remains fully committed to supporti... Read more

however this is a decision made in order to ensure the best quality experience for you all.

We naturally apologise for any disappointment this will cause.
We will absolutely be back with details on the revised release date as soon as we can.

o7 everyone,

It's time for this week's Discovery Scanner post! Let's talk Elite Dangerous.

Heatsink Module Update
In a GalNet article on the 13th, we mentioned that the megaships in the Coalsack Sector Vu-O B6-6 and Onoros systems will provide pre-engineered heatsinks. However, these were recently offered as a CG reward and we want to extend their exclusivity for a while longer to uphold the importance of CG rewards. Therefore, these megaships will stock the heatsinks, but at a later date.

Non-Damaged Starports
The team have noted that a few starports that you may have expected to be damaged last week were miraculously unharmed. Look out for this to be rectified this week, most likely Thursday. The Thargoids won't give up that easily. Maniacal laughter ensues

Vintage Intrepid Pack

Greetings Commanders,

We’d like to thank you all for your patience whilst we’ve been working on our communications and development plans for the remainder of the year.

Following the launch of Odyssey, our primary focus has been on performance, optimisation and bug fixing, along with adding more features. This focus has had a knock-on effect with regards to our plans for this year and beyond and delayed our communications.

We understand the concern and frustration this has caused and hope this post goes some way to alleviate those feelings. Below we discuss profile transfers for console players and give an overview of the updates coming before the end of 2022.

Console Profile Transfers

We can now confirm that players will be able to copy their profiles from console to PC in light of Odyssey’s cancellation on Xbox and PlayStation. This process will be time limited and optional. We will provide a date for this process once it i... Read more
