Is there anyone alive at FDev ?


I find the term 'alive' so very limiting.

Greetings Commanders.

Greetings Commanders.

Can you actually believe it’s the 9th of December and this is the 9th Update for Elite Dangerous: Odyssey? Does anyone else have any connections to the number 9? Not like I’m trying to distract you or anything.

So!
Let’s get ready to usher in Update 9…
Elite Dangerous: Odyssey servers will be offline from approximately 09:00 UTC
Servers are expected to come back online, with the update available at around 12:00 UTC (long one, ah? Lot of meat in this...).

Time to glide our way through some factual information and the annotations of a woman existing solely off of double espressos, Barry’s Tea (sponsor me) and only ever good intentions.

sorry ;)


It really doesn't bother me at all, don't you worry.
We're working all we can and to the best we can with what we have right now, so there's really nothing more I can do or any way I can feel other than keep working with everyone to get Commanders the best we can.

Greetings Commanders,

As we reach the end of the month, we are delighted to share our latest development update with you.

Issue Tracker

To kick things off we would like to update you on the key issues as voted for by our community on the Issue Tracker. Remember you can visit the Issue Tracker any time to vote for your top issues or make a report.

1. Lighting and Illumination in Odyssey

Since Odyssey’s launch we’ve made a large number of updates to in-game lighting to bring the experience more in line with Commander expectations. These changes included relighting ship c*ckpits, improving all materials and overhauling star light and station exteriors, to call out just a few.

Following the major changes in Update 6 we’ve now, ... Read more

Hey both - we're aware of this one. It's likely due to the servers being under a lot of pressure right now, but the team are looking into it.

Greetings Commanders,

A very warm and happy 3308 to you all - it's really great to be back in The Black with you all in another epic journey across our evolving Galaxy with another year set ahead of us.
We're taking time this week to gather our plans, catch up and prepare - so bear with us for a few days more on schedules and such as we get out stars aligned.

What I am happy to share is that the team have been working on a small hotfix this week for Elite Dangerous console players, to address the following:
[LIST]
[*]Cannot edit fire groups - menu navigation does not work.
[LIST]
[*]If your ship has modules that fall under the Utility category, you're unable to set your fire groups because navigation within the fire groups tab does not work.
[*]Further Reading: Commanders can become unable to set fire groups for such modules as the Detailed Surface Scanner (DSS), Data Link/Comp Scanner due to not being abl... Read more

Ah! Some very clear captures of shadowy situations in this video - very helpful with further investigations.
It'd be great to gather more contributions from Commanders who might be suffering shadow shuffles like this kind on the handy ticket there with examples! Thanks so, so much for making it.

We'll also of course look into any legacy investigations of shadow issues we might have on this side. It may be that some may have been exacerbated following an update and we need to revist. Lighting is a temperamental thing!

I'd also like to echo, for anyone concerned over the issue tracker table saying that lighting was fixed for Update 6, the bulk majority was addressed from previous investigations and major reports, however we are still absolutely taking on any serious issues still happening with it morving forward, as individual issues, if they're reported and poked o7

Anything new since July 27th, regarding consoles [USER=188830]@sallymorganmoore[/USER]? I know it's only been a week, but console players (more so the PS5 players) have been put on the shelf for a long period of time, so please, do excuse the obvious curiosity.

Thank you, and have a nice day!



I like how you used a screenshot there! Very fancy. Don't worry, I wouldn't try and deny anything I said to you guys hehe ;)
As I keep going on about...gosh a horrible number of a times and I feel sorry for you - I wouldn't update anyone on big key developments like this in replies to threads and such. I have absolutely nothing until official u... Read more

Greetings Commanders.

At approximately 14:30UTC/15:30 BST we will be bringing the Elite Dangerous: Odyssey servers offline in order to accomodate a small patch to address some current issues.
Once again, this is Odyssey servers only.
Downtime should be no longer than 15 minutes.

Updates of note:

[*]The bartender has had a stern talking to. They now promise to no longer crash your game when you try and sell your goods to them.

[*]There is a small chance that the bartender could be a little stubborn...If you encounter this issue again, give one of us a nudge.
[/LIST]
[*]An issue has been fixed whereby NPC's would no longer use flashlights in the dark making it very hard to see...well...anything.

[*]This fix also applies for Scavengers.

Unfortunately, not only some finds still fail to register, but the Codex is also not 100% accurate: there are entries in there which are no longer present at their registered locations, and can't be found elsewhere in the region. In other words, it's impossible to get 100% Codex completion. (sending a ping to [USER=188830]@sallymorganmoore[/USER] on this, and yes, the issues were reported - and timed out)


Boofff...I'll add this to my investigation list. Sounds like a big one to turn through (...continued response below)

"Robigo run" passenger missions could be worth looking into. If it matches your playstyle, it's been convenient in the past to travel between the two systems and paid well.

Hahaaa I'm here, I'm here.
I'm scattered about in other threads at the moment, being crazy noisy at times which aren't Thursday and breaking all the rules! Even pestering you lot at like...10pm last night because I felt lost without you.
Bear with me today, wonderful ones...I have a few things to...do.

Sorry to hear this seems to be a longstanding issue that hasn't been resolved. If you can find/make an issue on the tracker for it, I'll ensure it gets due attention. If making a new one, please make sure to include as much information as you can about the what you were doing when the issue occurred to help our team reproduce it.
