Distant Worlds II Event DW2 XBOX edition


Attention Xbox explorers - Distant Worlds 2 registration is now open in the Exploration section of the forum


For us console folk, this is an opportunity to level the playing field with the PC Commanders. We are catering to both consoles during the expedition, and we have a team of organisers making sure that the consoles can take part in all planned activities during the trip. Please sign up and take part in the discussions - we are an active part of this mission. This is going to be epic.


January 1st 3305 Update:


Fleetcomm is the main squadron - when it is full, we will use:
Distant Worlds (DWII).

Distant Worlds Autumn Update:

Distant Worlds 2 is now in its final work-up phase. Erimus and Dr Kaii have created a new news thread over in the exploration forum and it details what we have been working on for what seems like an eternity. DW2 will be THE biggest event in the history of Elite Dangerous. I encourage you to read it.


The roster and sign up thread can be found at the very top of that thread.

XBOX Distant Worlds Private Group - DistantworldsXB

Now, some really good XBox news - you wanted a Private Group, well we now have one. It should be noted that official DW2 support will be within that Private Group, and all XB participants are encouraged to sign up to it. The PG will remain in operation and steps have been taken to ensure it remains the official DW PG into the future. The instructions are as follows:

- You need to find 'DistantworldsXB' and add him as a friend on the XBOX dashboard.
- I will confirm that your commandername is recorded on our roster. There will be no access to the PG unless you are listed and have a DW2 roster number.
- I will send you an invitation to the PG

Simple as that. There are a few minor caveats though...

- It may take a few days to gain access.. please be patient. That said, if you hear nothing for a week, send 'DistantworldsXB' a message. There may be a queue...
- The PG will follow Fleetcomm rules closely, so you are advised to read their rules here: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showth...ate-(pc)-Group
- The PG will initially be limited to DW2 sign ups only. It may expand in the future dependent on whether Fleetcomm admin wish it to become their official XB PG.
- You are encouraged to join the Fleetcomm Discord: https://discordapp.com/invite/KC56Shy

Oh shoot, I forgot today was sign up day. I'm on it! Oh man, my Kalashnikov is in for my biggest adventure ever!
Just bought an Asp, and then promptly got blown up on a mission, losing all my money. Doing a few missions before more outfitting, including a new paint job. I'll finish my registration then. Very excited, as this will be my first big expedition with the community!


Sign3ed up...now to get back to finishing the ship Im gonna be using which is the T10 so I have somehow talked meself into signing up in a support role ^
The scouting missions will be Q1 / Q2, but DW2 itself will be Q4.

The latest figures show a bit of a surprise.. Of the 782 published entries; 41 are PS4 and only 57 Xboxers. There is a whopping 682 PC Commanders. Hopefully in a month or two, we can show that this community is still alive and well. I know for a fact that some of the larger exploration groups are yet to put in their entries, but please don't hold off. We need to hit a high number of entries to make this a game-changing event - lets do this!

I think they said Q1/Q2 once 3.0 is out (because everything will look different.
Thats dead on, a wee jaunt after Q1 would be nice and Im sorta looking forward to a look at the chieftain and the engineers revamp anyway. In the meantime the grind continues...Im sure closer to the time, some threads will go up about scouting missions.

Tis a first to beagle point fer me...Ive lived in the core fer 5 months and been to Sag A several times, but never got to beagle point. I only came back to the bubble to compare the T9 to the T10 and as things are changing, Im less inclined to wander and have much work to be done before the time when Ill feel the need. Ive spent years in asps both flavours and DBE...now I wont leave home without SLF cos they they just too much fun ^
