Thread: Important Community Update (01/03)

  1. Click here to go to the next staff post in this thread. #931
    Hello everyone,

    I just wanted to clarify some of the queries and concerns that were raised in this thread. Some of this is covered in the OP, and it's worth mentioning that we'll have more news and information to follow about upcoming content in the future.

    What does 'The Next Era' contain?
    The Next Era update will be in-game content and, as we've said previously, as development progresses, we will share more news and announcements on features, as well as timelines regarding this upcoming content for Elite.

    Future updates – what’s the plan? No major update until the latter end of 2020?
    As we said in the OP, we will still be making updates to Elite Dangerous on a 3-4 month cycle. These updates will initially focus on new player and welcoming experiences, as well as a number of QoL improvements for all players - and we'll be announcing what the first update will include in the coming weeks. We'll also be detailing more information about the upcoming development-supported events in the near future.

    Bugs
    Our commitment to squashing bugs hasn't ended, and we're going to be implementing a new bug report system. As we have mentioned previously, the new bug tracking website will make the bug reporting process easier, better, and more manageable! You will be able to log issues as you're used to, and the community will be able to vote on your issue. This will consider it confirmed and in that way we can put more focus into accurately examining the highest ranked issues.

    Powerplay
    We hear your concerns and feedback on Powerplay in and outside of this thread. We'll be evaluating and looking into some of the proposed solutions Sandro detailed in his post here. This is an on-going investigation and nothing is confirmed at the moment, but rest assured that we will let you know when we have updates regarding this.

    Ice Planets and Fleet Carriers
    Both Ice Planets and Fleet Carriers are still planned for the development road-map, and we'll be able to share more information with you in the future.

    LEP Content
    The Next Era content will be paid for content and LEP owners will receive it as part of their pass. We don't have anything to announce regarding any additional LEP content at the moment.


    Thank you for all the feedback you've provided so far. Keep it coming, we'll be reading!

    Please, please please put this in! If the devs need a hand visualising problems with Powerplay the wider Powerplay community are there to help.

    Thanks Will. The more you communicate, the better - even if drip by drip. I'm not sure you're saying anything there you haven't already but it never hurts to clarify.

    Roll on the updates (and the bug fixes; that sounds much better!)

    Lol, a clarifying post which clarifies nothing from everything asked for clarification

    No offence Will, but 'in the future' seems to be Frontier's new strap line.

    Plus you've now indicated that all the updates up to 'the big one' will now primarily focus on new players whereas before it was only the first two.

    As long as you're clear on that.

    I think we're all clear on that.

    Jam tomorrow.

    Hello,

    That should have been corrected in my draft. I've edited the post to ensure nothing is misconstrued. The initial updates will be focused on new players (as said in the OP) - but not all the updates to the 2020 release.

    Sorry for any confusion caused by that!

    You want to know more, they say they'll tell more but not now... How do you want them to be more clearer?

    So are Ice Planets / Carriers going to be seen before the 2020 major update, or are they considered part of that major update now?

    When might we expect even basic outline information on what the 2020 update will be?

    That's not something we're able to answer at the moment. But rest assured, when we're ready to start talking about those features, and the contents of the updates, we will.

    Hmmm, not really great news.

    This sounds that both are quite long time ahead :/

    No real news to the first post.

    Thanks Will, really looking forward to all the future planned updates and information on them when it is available to be released. ED still has my focus at the moment as the game I play most and nothing else out there in this genre even comes close to ED in my opinion.
