    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.

    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.

    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.

    I'm sure more people prefer unlimited but if it comes out that also a lot wish to have limited maybe FD may consider to introduce also a scanner with limited ones (a cheaper or basic version for example) so everyone's happy. Please!? :D Edit: Thanks a lot to Obsidian Ant for his kind support!

    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.

    Seriously anyone that wants gameplay based on how much time it takes to see everything because they make movies or they want to scan the whole galaxy the fast as possible or whatever other idiot reason, should just be ignored. The current honk and show everything is clearly a placeholder and FD is doing very well to introduce at last some gameplay in exploring. If you want to find interesting stuff use the new mechanic and stop comparing the time spent with when there was no gameplay.

    I've played this game since launch, so I've seen countless players come and go. Some stand out for their skill, leadership, accomplishments, or antics. The following list is who I would consider some of the most famous CMDR's in the Galaxy and why. CMDR ObsidianAnt - This guy has been making Elite videos as long as I can remember, and his soothing voice and great editing skills have propelled him to Elite stardom. CMDR itchynipples - If you played Elite in the first few months after launch, you possibly fell victim to this CMDR's ingenious and sometimes unscrupulous ways to see you dead. I certainly did, although I eventually got my revenge. CMDR LiquidCatnip - In the first few months of the game, before I was a leader of a group or even a member of one, I knew of LiquidCatnip who founded the East India Trading Company, a group that still exists today. CMDR S7 - Founder (I believe) and leader of the Code. There was a time in the game when sightings of the Code would send CMDR's scurrying for...

    The current system goes like this: Jump into the system Hold down your keybind to start the scan/maneuver for fueling if you are going to Scan completed, pull up the system map Make a decision on whether or not to invest more time on the system Take other actions in system or plot course and jump out The new system, if I understand it correctly, works like this:

    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

    I'm a life timer who left after a couple years. I can't believe its 6 years since kickstarter. I felt there was nothing left to discover anymore and I had done pretty much everything. Sure the Thargoids are here etc but I wanted something out in the black. Now there is. I feel I owe them some more money. Its a small amount but its something. We are all getting this season for free. I know next year may not be that way but we need to keep this going. They put some notches in their belt and taken care of business that needed to be done a long time ago which is bring back the bulk of the explorers that wanted more than a big empty galaxy. They took a risk by pandering to us non combative types this year and I want to make it pay off for them.
