Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Update 3

Had to hand myself in yesterday. Found there was a stars reflection in the door in front of me as below pics show, yet, i turn around and all i could see was the bunks and wall, no star. This was on the champion of Piety.

No noticeable change in performance on a 1060. If anything, it seems like the average FPS is actually ~10 lower in both star and surface ports on both Low and High settings. Still struggling to get more than 60-70 FPS when not in supercruise, with high intensity CZs, disabled settlements which are on fire and surface ports as the absolute low points with 20-30 FPS (especially on the dark side of planets). On this hardware, Horizons was 120+ FPS across the board with High+ settings with the exception of a few busy stations.

@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.
With all due respect, Frontier brought this upon themselves with this disastrous release.
The sad thing is that is the ground floor employees who have to deal with this and not the management who clearly pushed Odyssey way before it was ready.
 
Thank you FDev's for the update and I know you are all working hard on getting Odyssey bug free. Keep up the good work !!!!

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.
Point taken it's theirs to brake if they want to. But thanking then for fixing it afterwards is to me unfounded. Now if they add or improve (working) content beyond what they started out with then I will thank them all day long.
 
Hero is thankfully no longer in hiding, that's right. However please do tell me if that's somehow not the case and he's gone shy again. Thanks!
hero ferrari invitation still not working, I did like 30 CZ and just did a few more. still no invitation or mail. I so wanna go out of the bubble but I can't till finish engineers stuff. so please HELP!
 
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!

Ma'am, thank you and please pass along those thanks to the rest of the team.
 
Can't be true. FPS is still atrociously low (30 to 45) on 1080p at default high settings with a GTX 1060 6GB in the suit operative tutorial. I also resetted the graphics settings. This doesn't sound like the right conditions for a "recommended" GPU, does it?

Meanwhile, in No Man's Sky Prisms Update, I get screenspace reflections, glass refractions, detailed space backdrops, with 80 to 100 FPS on default high settings at 1080p, same GPU. And no issues at all while in NMS interiors.
Sorry if my words were a bit harsh, i appreciate the openness, though, and hope that (further) optimization and performance fixes are still on the agenda.
 
Thanks for the Update. There are a lot of fixes.

I tried Update 3 but settlements are still broken. Still missing containers for completing missions.
Cormack Enterprise. LTT 15574 5 B. Gyriak. Should get something from Container 9 but there is no container with that number...

Other settlements have same issues.

By the way the sorting is broken too. The List shows Container 1, Container 10 and then Container 2, Container 3 ... Maybe this is not a bug?

Although there are settlements in eg Gyriak which have floating buildings above ground.

Would be very nice if the settlement issues would be fixed soon as this is a real showstopper if you are not able to complete your missions and missions are failing because of missing items and grafical glitches.
 
I have about 700 hours on record with Horizons (double Elite status, close to tripple Elite) and I am just very sad that Odyssey so far (incl. today's update) is unplayable for me.
Reasons:
  • I can not play fullscreen, any time I go fullscreen mode the game crashes (10 sec in release version and all updates till today, today it crashed after 10 minutes, I actually did manage to shoot down one NPC ship in a random encounter but soon after that it crashed). Each time I send a crash report but I have given up hope that it changes anything.
  • I want to run the game in 4k which I did for the entire time of Horizons and it was smooth and looked fantastic. I had all settings to high or ultra and it was wonderful
  • Now I can't run even the "mid" preset with low shadows and no anti-aliasing, I get (if the program does not crash) a maximum of 26 FPS (in space and on foot) and it is laggy as hell, absolutely zero fun to play.
  • I ran it a bit in windowed mode with a smaller size window and it was "ok", FPS around 30-40, but I don't enjoy one bit of that small window on my large screen.
  • The colouring is way off. Too dark, gamma settings don't help at all.

My specs:
  • I7 6700K overclocked watercooled
  • 2 x GTX1080 founders edition (12 GB VRAM each) in SLI configuration (overclocked, watercooled)
  • 32 GB RAM
  • Samsung NVMe SSD 950
  • Win 10, latest NVIDIA drivers

This is a (for the time from 2016 where I treated myself to this crazy overpowered setup) very nice gaming platform still today. It exceeds the minimum and even recommended specs by a lot and it is capable of running modern titles very nicely. I play "Assetto Corsa Competizione" a lot (in 4K, decent details, no problems at all), "Shadow of War" in full detail max view range, max gfx config (comparison as an FPS game) and Arma3 with about 6 GB of mods installed (comparison for a complex 3D game with tons of mods).
All of those titles and many more (BF 1, Doom Eternal just to name other FPS games) I can play with 100% stability and enjoyment in 4K. So I consider my system not at fault for those crashes and problems I experience with Elite at this point in time. I think the game engine is very poorly optimized at this stage.

The reason I am writing this posting is just to let you know I love the game and I want to believe in it. I want to enjoy it again. But for now I will not be playing anymore.

Sad greetings from Germany
Take the over clock OFF your card, elite crashes if you have an over clock.

Im not upset(well not much), I have nothing but the best wishes for the dev team and hope they can climb out of the hole the management threw them, but Frontier should be reminded ALWAYS that this is not acceptable.

Read prior post. It's ok to be upset, but this is not the place to do so. Please go through the appropriate channels.
 
SOMETHING PINK IS BROKEN?! PRIORITY ONE!!! Just kidding (kind of), do you have a ticket I can grab for this, Commander, please?

Lol - I’ve not logged it on the issue tracker as yet, I‘ll see if it happens again, just giving you a heads up.

Although it’s been said before - thank you for all the hard work you did today, your positive attitude rubbed off on me a little and I feel a lot better for it!
