    NEWSLETTER #150

    Welcome to the Elite Dangerous Newsletter, the place to find all the latest from the Elite Dangerous galaxy.


    150 Newsletters. That number really is an achievement and one we share with each and every one of you in the community that continue to read and engage with us. So thank you Commanders, we appreciate it.

    There's some big news from Colonia this week will look to change inhabited space as we know it. Not only that, but as of today, you can now customise your laser colours to make your ship truly your own.

    As always, you can hear the latest news and updates directly from the development team on our Forums, Twitter, Facebook, Community Homepage, and right here in the newsletter every week, and we're always eager to hear your feedback.

    COLONIA INVITES YOU TO JOIN THE EXPANSION

    The Colonia Council and Pilots Federation would like to express their gratitude for your support in establishing a second bubble of populated space.


    Whilst still small, it offers sanctuary from the current politics and happenings in the existing bubble. There is no fight for supremacy in Colonia.

    As the colony continues to thrive, they would like to extend an invitation to Commanders from all over the Galaxy to join a new initiative to set up a hub in Colonia: The Colonia Expansion Initiative.


    You can find the full details for the expansion over in the dedicated forum post.

    HOW TO JOIN THE INITIATIVE

    In order to expand the existing population, collectives of players are invited to apply for a Migration Pass. To apply for a Pass, simple fill out this application, including the name of the new faction you wish to set up and the contact details of the Commander registering the collective.

    The Initiative will begin on December 1.

    CONFLICT CONTINUES IN MAIA


    Last week, the Pleiades Resouce Enterprise overcame Ant Hill Mob resistance to gain a foothold in the Maia system. Now the Ant Hill Mob is poised to launch a retaliatory assault with the aim of pushing the Pleiades Resource Enterprise out of Maia.

    ANARCHISTS CLOSE STARPOINTS

    Wright City in the Elli system has fallen prey to a chemical-weapon attack believed to have been executed by the anarchist organisation Revolution Incorporated. It is understood the group used Toxandji Virocide, a rare pesticide, as the basis for a potent chemical weapon.

    PATREU'S FLAGSHIP ATTACKED

    Eyewitness reports from the Eotienses system indicate that Admiral Denton Patreus' flagship, the INV Imperial Freedom, was heavily damaged in a recent altercation. An organisation known as the Children of Raxxla has claimed responsibility.

    COMMODITY APPEAL

    The Zosi Major Corporation has placed an open order for thermic alloys, chemical manipulators and industrial firmware. According to the organisation’s spokesperson, the resources will be used in an unspecified research and development project.

    ANCIENT DATA RECEIVED


    A spokesperson for United Meene Labour has announced that its appeal for data from the Synuefe ruins has been enthusiastically received. Engineer Ram Tah, who is leading research into the ruins, has extended his gratitude to the many independent explorers who responded to the appeal.

    There are always beautiful pictures in the newsletters. It is unfortunate that they are in miniatures and that we can not save them in a large format. Frontier should correct this anomaly, please

    Thanks, It wasn't really a problem just to scroll down to the topics, I just wondered why they never fixed it.

    Green lasers. I like green lasers. They feel somehow environmentally friendly when blowing someone up.

    Just read the newsletter now, and yes, the new format was so effective it meant I could read the newsletter, and discover about these lasers.

    Yes I feel its a little bit cheeky to ask for money to give us something which should have been an engineer mod, but at the same time, these are only £1 each so I bought the Red and the Purple.
