Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Update 3

thanks for the update, now im at 15 fps inside stations! yay!
there is any schedule on when the beta testing ends so i can try this out on at least 30fps+? =D
 
Who says no one's been out over 300ly.. i mean you are so it's not inconceivable that others can be.. 300 ly is really nothing! It's almost in the bubble!!
I was wrong, it is 400ly

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

Optimisation

  • An issue has been fixed whereby the bounding sphere used for culling was not central to the object.
I was very much hoping that this fix would also fix a culling issue in space, which can best be recognized in planetary rings. Asteroids are popping in and out of existance depending on where you are looking.

Here is a more detailed description and screenshots showing this issue in the tracker: https://issues.frontierstore.net/issue-detail/38193

Hello everyone here!

For the sake of being massively open with you after today's EPIC SESSION here with you all (Thank you! It truly has been amazing), I now need to finish up for the day because food, sleep and a VERY much needed shower all have my name on them.

Once again, thank you MILLIONS for your engagement today. Me stepping away now does not mean this level of attention ends here.
This will continue with each CM allocated to a day of the week moving forward, whereby they will be as close to 100% glued to forum conversation as possible, as part of our new communications plan that Zac outlined a little in Supercruise news earlier this week.

I'll check back in here in a more "regular" fashion of course throughout the week, as I dedicate my time back to my other major duties, until this happens all over again next Thursday.


Stay amazing!
I'll catch you all regardless!

That's right! It'll be one of the guys tomorrow. I'll be back next Thursday (lol! Like a TV show).
So today is a bit "special" because it's patch day, so I would naturally be very focused here - it turned out to be veryyyy busy so I've stayed here for now. The guys will look broader places and you'll notice them just generally chipping in on things drawing their attention :) Hope this helps!
Sally, it might be quite nice if you invented some form of jeopardy for your self at then of each stint, so that we could have a TV serial style cliffhanger, and have next week's resolution to look forward to. Bad idea? :)

Planets and moons keeps popping up (graphics, resolution, textures and things) as you approach them.
This is TERRIBLE UGLY and ridiculous.
Let's see if Frontier fix this basic thing next update.

I can 100% assure you, Commander, that nothing about the development of Elite Dangerous is ever basic. What I can totally assure you is with all of this incredible feedback and awesome conversation we're having, we will move forward with the improvements you deserve. Seriously. Thanks so much for the time and patience o7

We paid full price for Odyssey, FD. The things you've "improved" and "fixed" are not things you "forget" to do for a full release or things you do after said release, like you are doing now. My disappointment is immense and my day is ruined. Also, straight talk, I am not spending a single penny on Elite in the foreseeable future. Hope those quarterly profit reports were worth it.
I'm kind of with you on this topic. I'm not sure I go along with people thanking the team at FD for fixing things they broke.
If a garage mechanic reversed out of his drive way without looking and ran over my motorbike and then decides he would repair it, am I supposed to thank him when he hands it back 2 weeks later when he's fixed it? Especially when he tells me the bike is repaired but it only runs at 50% top speed now!
Does he deserve a thank you?

I think these things might also be a bit tricky, because this doesn't happen for everyone. For me approach planets is pretty smooth with some minor texture trouble sometimes near the surface and only when I'm still in the ship.

I went out on my first really big 'Splore in late 2016. There were NPCs flying around out to ~500ly, USSs & non-persistent POIs (blue circles) for regular civilisation things with skimmers out to a similar distance. Beyond around 5,000ly out there were no more cargo canisters on planets, only occasional escape pods, beyond 10,000ly from the nearest dock there was nothing.

More recently, this year I found very, very occasional non-persistent POIs on planets everywhere (furthest from dock was 28,000ly from Colonia up in the Void), the new Odyssey map reveals seem consistent with how the game behaved immediately before the Odd launch, it's just that they are obvious now of course.

I also remember Tea memes from explorers everywhere shortly after Horizons launched :)

It is basically not your motobike. You have an end user license agreement. Thats. All. You can use it or not. No further claims are given to you.
 
@sallymorganmoore You're doing great! Thank you for responding to so many posts! Thank you for all the hard work and communication.

To the rest of the community: Folks, this isn't a place to post bugs, ask for feature requests, or ask general non-related patch notes questions :). Please, please please, be nice and move all that stuff to the appropriate channels. I don't want to lose this increased CM communication because we are taking advantage of them hard, all at once.
