    Note the lack of crashing/ exploding, I am improving!

    Update to community@frontier.co.uk

    Hi Frontier,


    An update from the DECE. We have completed a third of our journey of the galaxy circumnavigation, jumped more than 432,000 times, traveled more than 8,6 million light years, and we have 234 days left of the expedition. At the moment we're about to leave the Outer Arm, and cross the Mare Desperationis to the Scutum-Centarus Arm.


    Before arriving at base camp 9, we've found a system (https://www.edsm.net/en/system/id/20...il+UT-Z+d13-16) with 104 bodies for CMDRs to tag one body in each, a group tag system. When we've all arrived back in the bubble and sold our cartographic data, the system will be a permanent monument of this epic journey.


    On May 5th the DECE and the BPE will meet at Beagle Point for a couple of days festivities, shenanigans, and generel enjoyment. Despite being busy on the very launch day, CMDR Wishblend from the BPE graciously agreed to be our guest on the DECE talk show at base camp 7 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMNPY_Vho0A). We host the show at every mass-jump event.


    Some CMDRs have been asking if it would be possible to have a decal created for DECE, and we would be ever grateful if you'd consider our request, and ecstatic should it be possible at all. The logo is probably too detailed, if you'll provide us with the requirements for a decal, we'll be happy to modify it to your specifications.

    I scanned all tagged bodies except a 2nd star that was 75kls away and in HD 166263 I scanned one extra body, leaving plenty of moons for more names.
    These were on the 'North' side of the bubble so I'm gonna turn around now and head back to the arm and hopefully catch the fleet by Beagle in May. O7

    They turn off when you repair them. Just didn't turn them back on again.

    Yes, this has happened to me too

    I turn off shields in space sometimes to make the ship run a little bit cooler. Same for things like the power distributor. Helps a little with fuel scooping.

    Same. And the shield does take 0.07/h more of fuel.

    My whole ship is under powered, so turning on both AFMUs to faster repair of FSD, the shield has to be off. Don't want accidentally overloading and have modules turn off on me.
