Greetings Commanders.

A very happy Friday to you all - here's hoping it's been a good week wherever you've been in The Galaxy.

Here today to give you a heads up on the release of a new gear set for Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Commanders. It's been a little while since the tailoring department has released a new line, so thought this worthy of a share.

Introducing: Metro Badlands

Sporting a mildly modern take on classic camo (I'd say, anyway. That's my view for fun, by the way, as I yarn through this post and not the official view of Frontier Store...), the 'Metro Badlands' pack hosts this new design in 3 colour-ways, sold together for 16520 ARX total.

Which is your favourite piece (only if you have one. Don't feel forced with fashion)?
For me, I like the 'Airtex' feel to the fabric... Read more

Greetings Commanders!

Just a heads up regarding Community activity this weekend.
As you know, Lavecon is back (thank goodness!) and we're going to be hosting a fun instalment of our own as part of the event's general scheduled, streamed activities.

We'll be hosting Frameshift Live #12 at around 14:30 BST on Saturday the 16th of July, over on the official Elite Dangerous Twitch Channel.
Unfortunately, due to the nature of having a more limited set up in terms of tech from our side, with travelling as part of the trip, the show will not be streamed live to our YouTube Channel.
We can however look to upload the VO... Read more

Greetings Commanders.

Very recent events within the Galaxy have resulted in a number of on foot Commanders, who were residing at Bright Sentinel, to become stranded with unavailable rescue.

The team are investigating a way to salvage those affected and we'll update you on progress with rescue as soon as possible.

[[COLOR=rgb(243, 121, 52)]EDIT[/COLOR]: 14:19 BST] Server side rescue team deployed. Commanders, you should now be safe and sound.

Stay safe out there o7

No spoilers, no secret messages...Just that some idiot put 'Drive' instead of 'Live'. That idiot will be severely beaten and punished as per protocol*

Greetings Commanders!

Nice little breakfast-vibe post for you to kick the day off early this morning, depending on your time zone, so we can start carving out the day just right.

As I mention in the 'Game News' section, we are still attentively farming feedback and relaying it in discussions around remaining, highly talked about issues with the development team to ensure we can provide accurate responses regarding their acknowledgement and progress.
This is naturally in line with regular duties and forward planning so we will be with you as soon as we can o7

Have a great day anyway, all! Here's your Discovery Scanner for the day: www.elitedangerous.com/news/discovery-scanner-15082022

See you in the black (and very green, eerie debris...).

Greetings Commanders.

Many of you have been incredibly patient with this one, so thank you as always o7

Issue: When attempting to equip any of the pre-Odyssey Commander clothing cosmetics (eg: Desperado), Commanders receive a 'Livery Error'.
Issue Tracker link: https://issues.frontierstore.net/issue-detail/51798.

The team have been looking into this issue as a reported priority with a view to address - when we know more on the targeted expectation of a fix, we'll let you know.

Full appreciation extended that this would be a frustration for many, right now, as no further information is available in terms of timeframes, but again accept our thanks for your patience and for reporting your experien... Read more

Hello!
I've noticed a few Commanders expressing some lengthy times this morning with things. I'll continue to keep my eye on things with you all but just a note to say I've got this on the radar on our side o7

Greetings Commanders.

Just a really quick post to acknowledge reports of latency issues and matchmaking/Mauve Adder errors that have been experienced from some time yesterday, through this morning also.

The team are working on stabilizing the situation as I type, with hopefully some improvements already being seen now on live game.

I'll continue to keep an eye out through the course of the day.

Please do post in this thread if any of the following persists:
[LIST]
[*]Longer than usual system jump times.
[*]Mauve Adders.
[*]Latency issues when performing actions such as selling and interacting.
[/LIST]

Here to help! Thank you!

Greetings Commanders,

To continue focus on providing the best experience for the more commonly used systems, we will no longer be testing Windows 7 compatibility for any future Elite Dangerous updates. As a result, we cannot guarantee future updates or compatibility for Windows 7 users.
