    Hello Commanders, With much anticipation, we’re pleased to announce that the beta for Chapter Four will be available to all PC Elite Dangerous and Elite Dangerous: Horizons players on Tuesday 30 October! In order to focus the public testing on specific aspects of Chapter Four, we will be unlocking different content over a number of different weeks. You can find out the schedule that content will be added to the beta here: We are expecting beta milestones to go live on the Tuesday of each week. However, we will update you in the News and Announcement forums as each update is made available.

    *edit, READ NEW CONTEXT TO MY THREAD Anyways I came back to say that after some people calmed me down and one in particular explained something: That I am not AS worried as before. The person in question who told me this has the exact same exploration style as me and fully understands where I am coming from. The context I was missing it seems, was that the filter system gives an overview of the entire system and allows you to briefly judge it based on that. It is NOT only a system to filter out things you want (though you can use it for that). Frontier went on about money and the people on the forums keep telling me if I only want earth likes I can do that. Neither was what I cared for.

    Hi Commanders, If you missed tonight's content reveal livestream or just wanted a recap of all the content discussed, read the notes below from designer Adam Bourke-Waite and Executive Producer Adam Woods. Remember that all of these changes will be featured in the beta out in October and could be subject to change. COMMUNAL DISCOVERIES Thanks to feedback from the exploration community, we’ve made an important change in how exploration data will be shared across all Commanders.

    Explorers, the long wait is almost over. We have waited. For years. Hoping. Praying. Jumping. Honking. Scanning. Eye-balling planets from orbit for.....anything of interest. Some thought a day like tomorrow would never come. Some thought that the past and future belonged to never ending releases of Combat ships.

    On the recent livestream FD showcased the changes for exploration mechanics that will be coming with update 3.3. Among these changes was the introduction of 42 numbered regions that will allow FD to spread rumors about possible places to discover within that region, as well as allowing player discoveries to propagate to other players. (The new regions) We think this is an amazing idea! However… The Galactic Mapping Project is one of the oldest community projects in Elite Dangerous, and although we've always understood that the project is not an official 'naming' project that FD has adopted, we hope that the rich history that has been built up around it over the past few years would be taken into consideration when Frontier Developments implement their regional overlay for 3.3.

    TL/DR -= Is fuel too cheap now? I have been playing a couple years now have 3.5 Billion in cash and assets. Spent about 250 million on rebuys, 20 million on repairs. Only 1 million on fuel. In a lot of ways fuel costs don't make sense. Nobody buys a fuel scoops to save on the price of fuel, the only reason for a fuel scoop is to save time or there is no place refuel where you are going. It would seem to me if this was real life you could fill up your var from empty to full for 1 dollar/euro/pound whatever. The fuel comes to station by hand wavium because no one could make a living delivering the stuff to stations. While a segment of players feel the more profit the better and fuel should be free (it almost is now) some of us would like to have to factor fuel costs into our decisions. I think it would make a more immersive game. Like ship delivery the player base is probably polarized on this in large chunks. It has been a long time since I have seen a thread on this issue and the economy has...

    FDEV appears to have the capacity to send players to a purgatory server. The "Shadow" server. So clearly there is a parallel Open universe where offenders are locked up. This must be a real physical server. Would it be possible to designate this server the OPEN PVE server, and code it so that all weapons are "smart rounds" (a currently existing game mechanic)? I understand that this is populated with EULA violators (how many can there be? a couple of hundred?) , but if their pvp capacities are neutralized - they would only be able to bot, ram, UA bomb, etc, anyways. I understand that this would not eliminate all possible forms of interplayer harassment - but I think it would be a popular log in option.

    I don't have a strong opinion. Just curious what others think. The recent SC demos have been pretty strong and i've observed Obsidianant for eg recently focussing on that and X4 instead of ED. Is ED getting stale i wonder? It's had a good run but maybe we're on the cusp of contenders for the crown taking it's place? Or will the unknown 'big' update we've been told to expect reassert it's dominance?? Personally i hope so. I hope it can fulfil it's planned 10 year life anyway.

    I wanted to play a just quick round. Do a transport mission, maybe two, for some engineer materials. I am docked at Jameson Memorial. All factions are allied with me. I have 128 tons of cargo space available. There is at this very moment not a single mission available that can be done in one trip and awards any useful material. The most insulting thing about this are those missions that award you with stuff like "34 Medical Diagnostic Equipment", which is another wording for "also credits, but more convoluted".

    Looking forward to ships PLURAL in the new update. My hopes/thoughts: Guardian/Human Hybrid full sized ship (hellish unlocks inbound :) ) Imperial medium ship Something to keep explorers happy. New specialised mining ship? My thoughts: Mining: will the new mining tools require hard points? Not much of an issue for my trusty T10 mining ship. I see FGS, Chieftain Variants, Asp E at the lower end of the cost scale being used for mining if that's the case. At the mid point, Python and Krait(s). The big ships can pretty much do anything you want.

    Never done it before, and i feel so bad - ill never do it again, as i try to fly as close to realistically as I can. However, it seemed to me that something was not quite right - can i ask a question? I committed the cardinal sin of flying without the funds to rebuy (I know, i know!) And was interdicted by a player. Was losing the interdiction so throttled back to conserve my frameshift regeneration for a quick escape. The ship immediatelly began stripping my shields off, while I dodged and shifted to silent running, but was being slammed by the ship (didnt even see what it was). At 46% hull I managed to jump and got into Supercruise with a view to Highwake to another system, BUT THE MOMENT I GOT INTO CRUISE THE SHIP INTERDICED ME IMMEDIATELY?! IMMEDIATELY..... This was despite him/her still shooting at me while I was charging (so there is no way they could have been charging at the same time with weapons drawn?!) So I logged

    What's your opinion on this question today: Is attacking other players (not npcs) in Open "harassment," if those players are clean, law abiding, and not attacking you? ------------------------------------------------------------- UPDATE: Not Asking About Criminal Harassment Several posters thought I was talking about "criminal harassment?" I was not. I was asking if other players thought attacking a clean player minding his own business was harassing that player, aka harassment.
