    NEWSLETTER #193

                      

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

    This week we are announcing some special community goals in the run up to 2.4, launching on Tuesday next week. We sat down with Lead Designer Steve Kirby to talk through how they will work. Plus, we have a new set of paint jobs for the Cobra Mk III and we’re on the look-out for commanders to feature across our channels.


    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.

    FEDERATION ADDRESSES RUMOURS


    Following news that a Federal convoy has been destroyed by Thargoid vessels, Lieutenant Jarah Kael of the Federal Navy has strenuously denied that the Thargoids attacked in self-defence. Data recovered from the scene of the attack confirms the convoy was attacked without provocation.









    AEGIS TO WIDEN REMIT

         

    A spokesperson for Aegis, the joint-superpower initiative established to coordinate research into the Thargoids, has confirmed that the organisation will henceforth focus not only research, but also on defence. The development is understood to be a response to the recent Thargoid attack against Federal ships in the Pleiades Sector IR-W D1-55 system.

    ENGINEERS APPEAL FOR THARGOID MATERIAL


    Following the recent Thargoid attack, Aegis has recruited two of the galaxy’s foremost independent engineers to immediately begin developing new defensive and offensive technologies. Aegis has placed an open order for a range of Thargoid materials for use in the programme.









    PEACE DECLARED IN HO HSI

             

    Authorities in the Ho Hsi system have confirmed that the conflict between Ho Hsi Jet Comms Limited and the Freedom Party of Ho Hsi has come to an end. Both factions received support from independent combat pilots, to whom generous rewards were promised, but ultimately there could be only one victor.

    There was a newsletter?
    "Are you people working under the assumption that playing Elite is meant to be fun?"

    "The elite dictionary does not have the word sympathy in it but has about 500 definitions of stupidity​"

    "
    The contempt with which the game treats it's players is not accidental. It's by design. The game hates you, that's just the way it is."

    You'll need to log into the store and find the option in your account settings.
    I think personal settings - got turned off by accident at one stage.

    Cheers guys

    I've done this a couple of times over the years and it never seems to acknowledge it. Will give it another go in case things have changed.

    EDIT: Actually I'd never done it through the settings. That might be it!
