Elite Dangerous Update 7 Progress

Someone say pizza?

Anyway, at least we're one day closer to the update dropping now. Although without meaning any disparagement to the devs, it's not going to fix everything and I'm sure there's more updates happening to get the game where it should be. It's probably not worth getting wound up about as there will still be work to do afterwards.

I'm sure the next one will have it all sorted in a couple of weeks though and a couple of days after that Sally will be giving us the firm dates of the console release and merger of the Horizons and Odyssey universes. 😛

I have heard that before and it is simply not true. only Selenium line doesn't have G5. All others have g1 to G5.
They're right- it's g1-g4 for raw materials:

Yes, because they consider the bug important enough (possibly even critical) to not delay the fix by a month.
couldn't they just release the "massive" monthly update and next week deploy 7.1 with maybe more bugs detected over the week fixed alongside the community goal one?

why delay an update that we've been waiting for over a month for ONE bug? why is that bug so critical that it's prioritized over a huge list of fixes and improvements?

honestly doesn't make sense to me.

Because one week doesn't matter and they don't have to replicate effort deploying two patches?

The date of this week was an arbitrary date they happened to mention a week or so ago, not some sort of deadline which should inspire conspiracy theories and "sus" inferences.

Good grief.

Already answered earlier in the thread:
Bit of a pity as I was kind of looking forward to this week's patch... I guess a week's delay isn't the end of the world after 3 months of waiting for the one that makes some decent difference, but would it not have been possible to release U7 this week and hotfix the CG issue next week? Or too much effort? (genuine question)
It just makes things way more complicated and takes out extra time from a number of teams to release even a little patch (especially for passing through QA all over again. You never know what even an isolated fix to something might do...well...you know Elite, haha).

It's certainly a big one though, especially if it's a Wednesday and you're sitting in the top 10 with your contribution.
 
Your all missing the point entirely.

@sallymorganmoore do we have any word on the XG9 lance bug potentially being fixed? It’s a small bug I know

Hihihi. Ohhh this is the one where you called the AI a "s*mp" in a post about it.

So I need to look more into why it's being said that 3 shots were always being made and not one, because by design it's one shot BUT something has gone wonky with the way it's all visually represented which is no doubt where the confusion is. Basically me talking out loud at you to try and show I'm thinking about it o7

right, what's +1 week on single digit fps right?
for someone who hasn't been able to enjoy the expansion since launch, a week delay just to see if(and that's a big OF) the update will finally help with the issues is fine, so ONE single bug can be ironed out, then will be 51 bug fixes instead of 50.

biggest problem is the cg right now, so I'll be back in a week to se if they postpone for another week, until then you got frontiers back, right boys?

godspeed.

Well, they already said Patch 7 probably won't fix that. So you were just getting over-excited about something that wasn't going to happen. Which happens a lot around here :)

No ship interiors either, before you ask (y)

Given that you are having this under your belt, and given that the issue tracker still lists it as confirming.... would it be possible to change the process to mark items under your belt in the issues tracker somehow? Maybe to "acknowledged" or "confirmed".

Definitely something to consider for the future improvements of the Issue Tracker for sure, I agree.

It'd help with clarity on what's known and what isn't BUT right now I just wanna get as many things around the waist as possible, even if this is really unconventional right now, so we get some kind of optimal list of fixes that eventually works for as many of...everyone as possible over the next bunch of updates.

Gotta go rogue a bit sometimes to get a feel for what actually gets a result, so bear with me :)
 
Sorry if this has been answered, but will turrets track heat signatures? I'd love a reason to bust out my cold DBX, it's such an atmospheric ship to fly...
 
Last time I checked armour that you could buy and store still didn't hve the description for which ship it was for leading you to blind guessing.

We really don't know their DevOps practices to comment whether CI/CD would be efficient for the ED codebase.
We really don't know the state of ED codebase to say how complex the fix is.
We really don't know the QA processes to determine how straightforward a regression test is.

An awful lot of assumptions are being made by people with scant information on how Frontier operate and a little too much experience in their own environment.

Thanks for this! o7

You need to consider the impact. How many players have Odyssey? Lots I'd guess. How many players take part in CGs? The vast majority I would imagine.

So more players are likely to be potentially impacted by the CG issue than would be by the issues that update 7 will fix.

As I'm on console I'm very much aware that the speed of these fixes impacts when I get to play the game in the first place. Let's get things right though and if they want to fix other issues that crop up that have the potential to cause problems for a large number of players as part of this process, that can only be a good thing.
 
I can't tell you how shocked and outraged I am at this week's del....

Oh, wait a minute, I had carpal tunnel surgery yesterday, I won't be playing anything for at least ten days.

Frontier should definitely take all the time it needs - well, up to ten days anyway - to fix this terrible CG bug.

Well, don't expect massive improvements with update 7.
If we are lucky some serious difference will be made by update 8, but there's no guarantee.

Still, we don't even know if update 7 was ready at all, so we are talking angels' sex
