Sally, was anything patched on console? Particularly the fleet carrier jump crash issue? Thank you for working hard especially from Home! 😇

Hello!! So I am absolutely on the case for these reports of console crashes when jumping. These were not patched for console but we really do need to investigate. I've got someone digging, but rest assured I've spun it up today for a deeper look.
You're totally welcome!
 
OK so I am frankly bowled over and knocked sideways!

Not by the update, that's well... long may updates continue ... till we have the product we paid for.

But by Sally!!! How active are you on here?!?

The sheer number of Dev (Sally) posts is the biggest update frankly! Big step in right direction for me! Hurrah 👏👏👏
 
Do you know what? I was playing the other day and I thought the exact same!! One burned my face off almost, but then another was fine.....innnteresting. Have you had it happen often? If so, and if you could grab a screenshot/video in a ticket - that'd be great!
It seems neutron stars just look like that now... White Dwarfs are fine (though the skybox is overly bright in their systems.) Neutron stars look like marshmallows and when you get further away from it, only the jets get smaller. The fat blob in the middle stays the same size for a long time. At certain distance it looks like a fat marshmallow with tiny arms...
 
Greetings Commanders!

Today at approximately 07:30 UTC / 08:30 BST, we released 'Update 3' to address a number of issues in Elite Dangerous: Odyssey.

  • Added pledge indicator to station services hud
Thanks for the including a Power Play fix - looking forward to you all winning this tech battle with the Bugs and having some time to work on the promised upgrade to Power Play mechanic. I play EDH everyday and will give EDO another go. And an even bigger thanks for taking the time to respond to so many posts. What a game, good thing I'm retired and this hobby is budget friendly. o7 to the entire Team.
 
I think it means that you can still tag an individual with a HUD marker. But no longer will you be able to make people permanent pips on your radar just by selecting them from the settlement terminal.

To be fair, the ability to make ourselves omniscient made settlement missions way too easy.
Thanks for the explanation, it's still downloading for me.

To tell you the truth, with all the grinding required to gather mats for the engineers, allowing the player be slightly omniscient in one situation wouldn't hurt ;)
o7 cmdr.

So, in case you’re still here, could you pretty please have a look at this? https://issues.frontierstore.net/issue-detail/35846
It’s something that is quite important to a probably very small percentage of players, so I’m afraid it will expire before it can get the 10 votes required for confirmation!

Ah thanks very much for this. All UI related feedback is still naturally a hot topic for us, so I'll take a look.

Might be a nice opportunity to completely redo them. There's new data out that shows we (humans) were pretty wrong about them.

Can we get a fix for the missing biological sites in HIP 36601 and Outotz LS-K D3-8?

I would rather play in Odyessy than in Horizon. Switching to Horizon just to farm mats is inconvienent because I have to rebind keys every switch.
 
Very nice list of fixes!
Thank you guys! amazing job as always.

I wonder about one thing though:
  • Added a 'resupply' button to the Boarding UI that restocks consumables and weapon ammo
    Very nice quality of life improvement, however will this button also refill the e-breaches? As sometimes it is not necessary, or even harmful to have for a peaceful mission, that can lead to hostile NPC reactions upon getting scanned.
Thanks again, and keep up the great work!
It would have been great if the game could remember what the player had on them when they disembarked and resupplied that.

If those are crystal shard sites, those won't reappear in Odyssey since those sites don't come clustered like that anymore but are strewn all over the planet, like it should be.
 
Thank you team for your hard work! Absolutely LOVING a lot of these fixes and improvements!

Something that I don't think was mentioned in the list, but which I could SWEAR has been improved, is that now it feels like the data port download times seem to be much more reasonable? If you guys did indeed tweak those download times, thank you very much as the previous download times were overly long sometimes.

Also, I could swear I saw a globe icon popup on my Transaction panel indicating which on-foot missions had been completed which is FANTASTIC! The only problem is that I saw it briefly, and haven't seen it since. So there may be bugs relating to it still.

I'd like to also suggest a little QoL improvement for figuring out whether a terminal or consumables is indoors when you are outside and vica versa by displaying those icons that are in the same environment with full opacity and those that are not at 25% opacity.

Oh and PS: It would be very nice if we could exit dialogues with NPCs using Esc since using Esc is a standard in the game for exiting most views.
 
Hi @sallymorganmoore Thanks once again for all your communication today!

Re: The item wheel inversion issue i raised with you

You asked me to include my binding files? Where would i find them then when they are at home and who do i send them to? I don't see anywhere on the issue tracker. If you could point me in the right direction of how to find them first and which ones you want and then where to send them that would be awesome sauce.

Ta very muchly!
