Umm I think you have grossly misunderstood things.Guesswork from a CM on a stream, contradicted by a seperate forum post by another member of the team.
I could characterise this as "sub-optimal"
Zak Disagrees in this post below - he specfically ties the tech to the Individual purchase of Odyssey::
I do wish these people would understnad the impact that inconsistent comms has within the playerbase. Perhaps if we had... I dont know... a job role within Frontier which could manage the community interactions and ensure consistent messaging??
I`m sure we woudl all welcome some clarification on this topic given the significant impact it has to the players experience.
Zac (with a c) posted that as part of the recap, I then asked
I had been thinking about this and it does raise another couple of very interesting questions. Ones that I really wish could be answered please.
Will users on PC who don't upgrade to Odyssey, see the changes at the same time as those who do?
So I asked Arthur for clarification on the stream and he gave it. What you have done, I think, is somehow completely misunderstood the question that Zac posted the answer for.
Console players won't be able to see the upgraded planetary tech until Odyssey launches on the relevant platform. But PC players, and so by extension console players, who don't upgrade to Odyssey will be able to see the new planetary tech. So as I said they must just be waiting to push any of the front end changes at all to consoles, until Odyssey is released.
