Patch Notes Update April Update - Patch 1

Was the super cruise assist mentioned?
As this is also a farce.
Let me explain.
If you want to crash into a star or any other astronomical body, then use this option.
It goes to the target in a straight line ignoring anything in the way.

OOPS.

I thought it was supposed to aid guidance to an Object!

It was I thought supposed to mainly assist you by running the throttles not replace you by doing everything, I have had issues using it but it has never collided with anything that wasn't in the way before I started.

I have had it happen four times out of 100 runs.
So a small percentage but still worth a punt at Fdev <Smirk>
To be honest I find it of no real use I use the slot for the SRV now.
Do surface missions. Great Fun.
 
So still nothing to fix this broken update ? EDIT: just saw an update will be rolled on Tuesday.

So no Elite for me this weekend, again and again...

I feel bad for buying the beta access last year or so when they throw updates without even testing it..

Thanks FDev, will reconsider buying cosmetics from now on, I've put enough money in the game for you to break it and prevent me to play.

It was clearly explained in the documantation that this was a form of cruise control, not an autopilot. if you aim at something it will hit it! That's why it's called Super Cruise Assist and not Autopilot.

Yes I was aware of the shortcomings, I was just hoping they would mod it slightly. :D
 
Greetings Commanders,

The Elite Dangerous servers will be offline for all platforms from tomorrow morning (2 May) starting at 09:30 AM (UTC) for approximately 30 minutes to apply a minor update containing fixes and improvements.

Thank you for your patience.

  • If the player is currently docked at the station that is also set as the saved comparison market, the comparison column and its header will update and use the galactic average prices to calculate the profits
  • If the player doesn't have Horizons, planetary surface markets are not considered when looking for best prices in the 'also consumed by' / 'produced by' lists
Crashes/Stability
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when using the FSS mode

  • Tiana Fortune's medium and large landing pads should now be usable again
  • Fixed the Galaxy Map's planet port commodity filter
  • Fixed a number of performance & stability issues
I have a very strange bug, when I kill a ship Felicia Winter I get merits of Felicia Winter, but I'm ally with Aisling Duval of the Empire, so you can not advance in Powerplay, this bug it happens from this mentioned update
 
Yep, worst part is (once again) that there is absolutely no info or acknowledgement from FDev.

Are the FSS bugs noted?
Are they being worked on?
When can we expect any kind of fix?

Seriously, the exploration is very close to unusable at the moment.... And what else is there to do 18000 LY away?
Pretty sure there's a patch for that going out on Tuesday
