    BASKING CONTINUES

    We know you all love a bit of basking, so here's CMDR Andromedaa from the Small Worlds Expeditiondoing exactly that. Looking good.

    FEELING THE HEAT

    There's a strong chance CMDRJettlagg got a less than healthy dose of radiation landing on this rather toasty planet.

    SPELLING IT OUT

    CMDR ZestyMilk shows some serious finesse, using gimballed lasers to spell out "KO" on an enemy ship.

    We think they got the point.

    See you in the black, Commanders

    the hostess with the mostest


    Really pleased to see the recent attention to Open.. Some of the most enjoyable streams I've watched.

    Outside development, Ed and Zac are the best thing to have happened to this game. Really appreciate the improvement in community engagement even though I grumble at times.

    OPEN is fine if you limit your Ship asset for affordable losses but the Missions don't replenish enough to allow us to sustain our main Ships we fly.

    I've earned a ton of credits from doing VIP passenger missions, more than enough for tens of rebuys..

    finally, thank you CMDR !

    None of the links under contents work, they all take you back to the main forum page, I think this has been like this for months now ... possibly even longer.

    by the time this letter was published, the CG for ancient data was already over haha.

    Just would like to chime in somewhere and say: Thanks for the Cutter & Corvette paint packs finally being available! That's been a long time in coming, and I'm gladdened that it's now available.

    Yep. I've made more than I had when 2.2. dropped.

  14. #14
    so any predictions on todays newsletter?

    I hope for info on when the next patch will drop, specifically some clues as to what we can expect on the mission pass.

    the obvious one being the current nerf to delivery missions, but also hopefully a tweak to the piracy missions (kill 16 - 32 pirates in a system with no RES, none spawning at nav beacon and only 1 mission target showing every 4-5 mins is not really good gameplay imo)

    I think it will mainly be about weapons colors and Christmas skins/bobblehead.
