Latest Steam Announcements for Elite Dangerous

 
Greetings Commanders,


Today's patch brings a number of changes, primarily focusing on stability and Fleet Carrier fixes. These are due to go live at 10:00 UTC with 15 minutes of downtime expected.


Fleet Carriers
  • Setting a price for a commodity in the market management screen is now much faster.
  • Players can now use "-" when entering ship IDs.
  • Fixed an issue that placed Fleet Carriers in the barycentre when jumping to a binary system, even if space was present around the primary star.
  • Fixed an issue which could cause Fleet Carrier landing pads to be displaced.
  • Removed superpower faction logos from Fleet Carriers.
  • Fixed a bug which prevented SRVs from being restocked at Fleet Carriers.
  • Fixed the timing so that when transferring a ship to a carrier the "Incoming Message" audio now plays at the same time as the message arrives rather than immediately upon requesting the transfer.
  • Fixed a problem with stolen mission cargo getting stuck after being sold to a Fleet Carrier.
  • Fixed an issue positioning Fleet Carriers near stellar bodies with highly eccentric orbits.
  • Fixed some issues with bookmarking Fleet Carriers.
  • Fixed an issue with Limpets sometimes not being restockable at a Fleet Carrier.
  • Fixed an issue with Fleet Carrier shipyards incorrectly interacting with Powerplay control system effects.
  • Fixed an issue causing ship inventory numbers to be displayed incorrectly after selling items to a Fleet Carrier.

Background Simulation
  • Adjusted the way Retreat and Expansion conflicts are resolved.

Mining
  • Surface and sub-surface deposits on asteroids will no longer immediately respawn when re-entering the instance or switching to a ship launched fighter.

Galaxy Map
  • Fixed an issue which stopped Squadron Bookmarks appearing.

Installations
  • Fixed an issue with combat bonds not being correctly awarded for scenario objectives when over four players contributed.

Commodities
  • Galactic average prices were updated.

Stability Changes
  • Fixed an Orange Sidewinder connection issue when dropping into an instance with a Starport and Carrier Vendor.
  • Fixed a crash when entering the Commodity Market on a Fleet Carrier.
  • Fixed a crash when entering Holo-Me customisation at a Fleet Carrier.
  • Fixed a crash when purchasing a Fleet Carrier and immediately viewing it in the galaxy map.

Hi everyone,

The downtime will begin at 09:50 UTC, and we expect maintenance to conclude by 10:30 UTC.

In the meantime, here are the patch notes for what we're changing:


Commodity Market
  • Reduced repeat speed on market selection arrows on Compare Market screen.

Mining
  • Reduced the largest possible yield when subsurface mining for Low Temperature Diamonds by around 25%.
  • Decreased the effectiveness of the peripheries of Low Temperature Diamond hotspots.
    • Overlapping hotspots for Low Temperature Diamonds, when coupled with the new Subsurface Mining changes, were more effective than the centre of the hotspot itself. This change increases the drop-off of the hotspot's ring, reducing the likelihood that a double-overlapped hotspot is more lucrative than either of the hotspot's centrepoints. A well-placed triple hotspot will still be very effective at increasing the likelihood of finding Low Temperature Diamonds. This change does not affect any other hotspots or minerals.

Crashes/Stability
  • Fixed a disconnect triggered by selling exploration data at a Fleet Carrier.
  • Fixed an occasional crash when entering a system with a Fleet Carrier.
  • Fixed an issue with some bookmarks being missing.

Fleet Carriers
  • Fixed an issue which could cause a Fleet Carrier purchase transaction to fail.
  • Skybox will now correctly update after a Fleet Carrier jump without having to re-enter the instance.
  • Fixed a bug which allowed players to install additional Carrier services even if they didn't have capacity.
  • Fixed an issue with duplicate Fleet Carrier call-signs - this will cause all Fleet Carrier call signs to be regenerated as of 3.7.01.
  • Fixed some issues with stats not correctly updating.
  • Fixed an issues with carrier jump sequence not always proceeding correctly.

Arx & Customisation
  • Fixed an issues which caused some Fleet Carrier nameplates to be obscured.
  • Fixed the colour of landing pad 7 holo-marker on Fleet Carriers.
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when switching Fleet Carrier Layout.

Audio
  • Fixed missing ATC voices at starports.
  • Fixed issue with outfitting ambiance audio layering up on top of itself when going between outfitting and livery.
  • Fixed an issue with Engineer Remote Workshop ambiance persisting into the main game, and can layer up on itself too.

Text
  • Fixed missing titles for the audio logs associated with the Golconda.

Missions
  • Fixed an issue where a collect/source mission would request commodities on sale at the same location.
  • Fixed an issue which caused mission critical updates to not appear in the inbox.

Journal
  • Added a speculative fix for an issue that could cause the game to add excessive NavRoute entries to the journal when looking at the Galaxy Map.

Powerplay
  • Fixed the missing cooldown time which would allow players to repeatedly obtain their allocation of powerplay materials.

Background Simulation and Galaxy
  • Reinstated missing locations.
  • Ongoing balancing of Faction influence normalisation.


We'll add an update here once the servers are live again,


Stay safe and o7 Commanders.
Greetings Commanders,



Thank you for sharing your feedback since the launch of Fleet Carriers! As a result, we will be having scheduled maintenance tomorrow at 09:30 (UTC) expected to last approximately an hour.


This patch will address various bugs and issues that you have reported to us, with the patch notes to come tomorrow.



o7 Commanders
Greetings Commanders,


Yesterday we launched the Fleet Carriers update. Thank you to all the Commanders who have shared issues they've faced so far. To address these, we are planning maintenance later today at 15:00 UTC which will require some downtime expected to last up to an hour. This post describes the key issues we intend to resolve during this downtime.


Missions
Some Commanders had their missions removed unexpectedly. This especially affected Commanders undertaking longer missions. We will restore missions from before the update to minimise the impact on players. Due to the structure of the missions system, this means that any missions taken after the update will disappear. We'll implement this in a way to make this as fair as possible - more details will be shared on this after the maintenance.


Powerplay
A server issue meant that Commanders were able to unfairly advance their chosen Power rapidly. Knowing the importance of Powerplay to many of our more experienced players, we have thought carefully about which steps to take next. As such, we have decided to rollback the Powerplay system to undo the effects of the disruption. This means that Powerplay will return to its state from before the update. This decision was made in the interest of maintaining fair play throughout the community.


Missing Sites
The same server disruption caused an issue whereby sites such as Dav's Hope, the Jameson Crash Site, Guardian sites etc. were not present after the update. These will be restored gradually throughout the course of today, with the bulk being re-added after the downtime.



Thank you all for your feedback! Please continue to use the Issue Tracker[issues.frontierstore.net] and sharing any new issues on the Known Issues thread[forums.frontier.co.uk].



Thanks for your understanding,

The Elite Dangerous Team

"CAPITAL-CLASS SHIP DETECTED"



Fleet Carriers are now traversing beta hyperspace and they will arrive in the live Elite Dangerous galaxy today. We would like to give another big thank you to everyone who participated in the betas and provided us with the feedback to make Fleet Carriers what they are today!



For a recap of what Fleet Carriers have to offer, read below. Catch up with the full Patch Notes by clicking the link here.



These monolithic mega ships are a mobile base of operations for you and anyone you want to welcome aboard. With a 500-light-year jump range, Fleet Carriers provide a new platform for deep-space exploration and long-range travel, equipped with every essential you could ever need. No matter where you are in space, youíre home on a Fleet Carrier.


Offering a range of on-board services, capabilities, and customisation options, Fleet Carriers are truly tailored to suit your play style, offering you the ability to rearm, refuel, and repair on-the-go. Here are six great features making Fleet Carriers well worth purchasing in Elite Dangerous.


Deep Space Exploration
Exploring the far reaches of our galaxy can be a long and daunting journey. With Fleet Carriers running on newly discovered element Tritium, you can now make staggering jumps of up to 500 light-years, enabling you to establish a forward operating base and explore surrounding systems. Top up fuel reserves by mining ice asteroids to prepare for the long journey home.



A new source of income

You have to spend money to make money, and there are plenty of ways to do both on your Fleet Carrier. Owners can impose stiff tariffs for visitors who wish to use their shipís services, letting you earn extra when Commanders sell bonds, buy modules, and more. Any funds you accrue will deposit directly into your Fleet Carrierís bank, and you can withdraw them at any time. Whether youíre feeling relaxed or ruthless, the finances are up to you.


Your own personal shipyard
Fleet Carriers let you bring the whole crew along for the ride. With ample room for a range of craft both above and below deck, itís never been easier to organise your squadron. Each Fleet Carrier has 16 landing pads, allowing for eight large ships, four medium ships, and four small ships in total. Touch down and browse potential upgrades, or take the party to a new system. Your Fleet Carrierís capacity, services, and local Superpower reputation is visible to everyone at a glance.


Control Landing Clearance
Who comes aboard your Fleet Carrier is entirely your call. Choose whether only friends have docking permission, extend the invitation to squadron members, or throw open the gates to anyone with a pulse. An additional setting lets you control if Commanders with notoriety can dock, letting you give refuge to criminals or protect your good name. Visitors can see what your Fleet Carrierís focus is via the interface, whether thatís mining, bounty hunting, pirating, and more.


Upgrade with a range of services
Fleet Carriers are powerful, versatile, and purpose-built to work for you. Optimise your experience by adding extra features, from Universal Cartographics and Outfitting, to your own personal Redemption Officer. Keep it quiet and you might even decide to invite along a fence, whoíll facilitate the trade of illegal cargo on-board. Your Fleet Carrier, your rules.


Keep your carrier jump ready
Like any good Commander, youíll need to employ a trusty crew to run all of the operations. Your Deck Officer, for example, is responsible for day-to-day maintenance, navigation, weaponry, and other duties. In addition, each service you introduce corresponds to a Head Crew Member. Provided youíve got the credits to cover upkeep costs, you can turn your Fleet Carrier into its own micro economy.


We'll keep you updated on when the Fleet Carriers Update is live, but in the meantime, why not jump into our Launch Day livestream over on Twitch[www.twitch.tv]? We'll be joined by Head of Online, Dav Stott, to talk through Fleet Carriers and their journey from beta to launch. Don't miss it, starting at 11:00 AM UTC.
