    NEWSLETTER #214

                                               

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

        

    The week we have a lot of events starting to crop up both online and off. We've got PAX East in Boston and community led events in Reading and Portland! 


    Some commanders are organising an initiative to get key starports up and running after the Thargoids attacks, and Project168 is an ongoing charity livestream hoping to raise £100k for SpecialEffect and Stack Up.

    CRIME AND PUNISHMENT IN BEYOND  — CHAPTER ONE

           

    The
    development team are busy getting everything ready for the upcoming Beyond  —
    Chapter One update. Make sure to keep your eyes on our Social Media channels
    and official forums for news on the launch date. For now, let’s take a look
    back on some the big changes coming up, starting with Crime and Punishment, as
    there have been a few changes made during the beta.


    The new
    system will add appropriate consequences for criminal activity, new rules for
    bounties and fines and new respawn rules for when you are destroyed in a wanted
    ship.


    We're
    hoping that the changes to the new system will make it more legible and easier
    to understand, but the changes are something that every Commander should be
    aware of so please do check out the full details in our new forum post which summaries everything about Crime and Punishment so far.

    what a typo... the type-10 defender squadron pack was last week, wasn't it?

    this should be Vulture

    Well, I guess that means they are still hard at work getting it ready with no ETA. Better safe than sorry.

    No worries, I just picked up Planet Coaster on sale and will spend some time with it! ;-)

    What?!? No Thargoid related swag? No ship kits made from Interceptor parts, No Thargoid T-shirts for our CMDRs, No Thargoid bobbleheads!?!

    Why does the rest of the galaxy get this stuff, but not the CMDRs hard at work???

    Frontier, please... If you are going to use Galnet to tease Thargoid swag being sold throughout the Bubble, at least throw some our way!
