Oh yes - I had found that already!Howdy virtual space folk!
It has taken several weeks of writing and playing (I was away for the whole of December), but I've finally finished revising my comprehensive beginners guide to Elite: Dangerous to reflect all the stuff introduced in Beyond 3.3. Weeeeeeellllllllllllllllll, mostly...
Anyway, the sections on mining and exploration have been extensively reworked and expanded, and I've also added some new sections on Squadrons and The Codex. Not to mention revising other bits and bobs affected by the changes in Beyond 3.3.
While I was at it, I decided to go through the whole document to update many of the screenshots and improve readability. This includes things like:
- ironing out numerous typos — and no doubt introducing some new ones along the way
- restructuring some sections
- breaking down lengthy sentences into shorter ones
- making paragraphs shorter
- and utilising bullet points more (just like I am now!!!)
Updating the guide has been both hard work and a lot of fun — the blooming thing now weighs in at a rather unwieldy 35,000 words plus dozens and dozens of images.
I hope people find it useful, and I'll try to keep updating when necessary or whenever I can be bothered!
Also, I finally became an Elite explorer while doing "research" for the new exploration mechanics — just combat left to go now!

Thanks. I don't have a specific section on that, but do very briefly touch upon that in my short section on scenarios. But maybe I can expand on that when I get a chance.You are to be congratulated on a tremendous piece of work. Thank you.
I've been playing this game for a year and there are several useful bits and pieces that I knew nothing about.
I haven't had a chance to read it all yet but I haven't found any reference to the new 'structures' that were recently introduced.
e.g. the traveller ships and the stations that can be defended from attack or attacked.
