Hey @StuartGT,

There are no plans on returning Galnet News Articles, Community Goals, and Interstellar Initiatives at this time. If this does change we will let you know.
Thank you for letting us know.


I am of course somewhat disappointed about the CGs and IIs not coming back in the near future and hope you will be able to bring us happier news on that in the next few months. As for Galnet I am using that as much now as I ever did but even so it would be nice if it came back eventually.
 
Or:

Bugfix Update 1 - Jan
Bugfix Update 2 - April
FC Update - End of June

Still within the timetable and now it's a "series" of bugfixes, as announced.


I remember "end of first quarter of 2020" for FC release, it's too long, all my guys (squadron) begun to slide in other games...
 
Are there plans on returning Galnet News Articles, Community Goals, and Interstellar Initiatives at another time? Please let me know.

;)
@Stephen Benedetti yeah, sorry to do a Jeremy Paxman on this one but, "at this time" is wording FD normally reserve for statements like "we have no plans to make Powerplay be Open Mode only at this time" - which I tend to read as "we have no plans to do that whatsoever unless we have a fairly serious change of direction further down the line". So are you saying that you currently have no future plans to bring back Galnet, CG's or Interstellar Initiatives?

Even optimistic me is beginning to wonder over what the future brings for ED 🤷‍♂️

I've plenty to do until Q4 2020 (assuming I live that long - wrong age group :) ) in the game, but if 'New Era' is executed with the panache currently given to the game, who knows?

I may be making a mahoosive baseless stab in the dark, but I would not be surprised if they will be totally replaced by ArxNet and Missions with stupid numbers that anyone can join. (+ associated bugs)
 
Excellent news! (y)
And if they come back anytime in the future, hopefully with more content connected to the game and not just that pointless fluff it was before which only wasted developer time.

While community goals might not have been top notch gameplay, it still was the only group content the game had. While I can understand that for a solo player CGs might be absolutely worthless, I'm a bit sad to see it go, as several of the best moments in the game were during some CGs cooperating with other players.

Hopefully the new era will bring improved versions (or something else entirely) to fill this gap, or even better ways for players to interact between themselves and the game world so they can create their own group activities, but at the moment this feels more like the game is being slowly dismantled a small bit at a time than "the entirety of the dev team even the guy who writes the CGs micro-story is focused exclusively on the new era".
 
Colour me not at all bothered:
Galnet was just confusing fluff
CG were just a weekly grind bonus
II were a long winded railroad that ended with exactly what FD wanted in beige, or a slightly different colour beige.
And all were COMPLETELY OPTIONAL. Considering that thousands of players enjoyed these things every week, bringing them back for us is not what I would consider a "waste of developer resources". By the logic of some, 3/4 of the ships in this game should be removed because _ I _ don't like them.
