Patch Notes Update Update 3.0.4

Anyone else having freezing far more often after this update? I'm on Xbox. In a half hour of playing, I've already had two freeze-ups. Not a total lock, but the fun "bzzzt" that kicks you to the dashboard. Previously, these were few & far between. The first happened while flying away from a station, the next a few minutes later while looking at a mission board. Hopefully the frequency was a coincidence, but it sure seemed odd that the issues have increased with the latest update, at least apparently.
 
Wing missions still do not pay out enough to provide sufficient incentive to do them. Example: In system Bhotho, allied with 6/7 factions. I'm seeing ONE wing mission out of all of them in my list. 5800 units for 8mil. Ok... not bad if you have a full wing of people with large ships, fully cargoed Type 7 at a minimum.

The delivery site is a 160k ls from its star.

Every other wing mission doesn't pay out nearly enough to justify the time it would take for delivery. I understand you all have to strike a balance, and you want all money making ventures to roughly equal. I also understand that wing missions are supposed to encourage people to wing up. These delivery and industry need missions would outrageously miss that mark.

I agree 1000% here.

Why would anyone in their right mind chose 5500-6000 tonnes over 250ly range for 8-11 million credits when they can instead haul 120-150 tonnes solo for 1-3 million one jump/7-8ly? Answer: Nobody in their right mind would.

Wing missions in 3.0 were "OK" - still borderline, then from 3.0.3+ they have become another useless, ludicrous time sink for only the dopiest of players that would their head examined to even THINK about partaking in.

When WING missions have less rewards per hour than even simple trading, it makes the playerbase wonder what the devs must be smoking. Cargo-based wing missions were a welcome addition in 3.0- not great, but arguably somewhat worth taking if you were bored and lazy. They have now sunk into more useless banter on the mission boards that the player base with even a modicum of experience will avoid with a chuckle for any poor sap that might actually TAKE one of these terrible missions with risk vs. reward, and time vs. reward being ludicrous if not outright ridiculous.

I can only HOPE these dopey missions are there to make people reconsider CGs? I mean, if the end result is "I can spend HOURS running dozens of jumps against constant interdictions by engineered foes --OR-- I can make the same rewards running simple cargo for CG's for 10x the rewards and 1/10th the time... Hmmmmmm..." There are better ways to get CG participation if this is the angle. Mission boards shouldn't be a device to make people scoff and laugh so much that they consider CGs....

Hi Sandro and DEVS,

Is it possible to make a delivery wing mission near the system ? Which asking for an escort ?

It can be useful for smaller wing who don't own all a big cutter

Thx
 
Right about what?
That everything you wanted fixed isn’t fixed right now? Just fixed for you or the thousands of other Cmdrs who play also? I don’t recall FDev saying they were all done with ED.
God this place is depressing.
I remember the forums being a lot more of a chipper place a mere year ago...but, yeah...it certainly is depressing. You've got people all but quitting the game because the Discovery scanner isn't working right at the moment, people cheesed off because bugs they thought were more important didn't get fixed...gods, this place is starting to remind me of the Changelog forum over on Keen Software House's site...
 
Ok so just a few more minor bug fixes. Is their any plan to fix the major bugs or at least some of them before the next update. Like their has been no local news in systems or faction news since the 3.0 update and it's impossible to tell witch faction controls bases until after you dock or your faction giving you a mission were they need to find out what is wrong with it, and as soon as you do you get a bounty and are unable to complete the mission or missions this is a bug you said you were fixing with the 3.0 update but all that happened was that you now always get a bounty and its impossible to defend against the station because the bounties get even higher if you try.

Its also no fun if its a random base with no way of telling witch faction controls it.

As always have a very nice day.

Yeah I had the "bzzzt" freeze three times last night. Haven't had one for weeks and then three in one night, not good.
 
Yes this bug also happens on PC it was created with the 3.0 update, at the moment as far as I can tell their is no plan to fix any or at least try and fix any of the major bugs now in game until the next update.

I want to say that I appreciate the fixed mission boards. I have now unlocked Guardian Plasma Chargers, something I spent all weekend unable to do, so thanks!

Mission accomplished. No for some Neofabric Insulators...

This is what happened to me and my friends everytime we met in SRVs in the previous 3.x releases.

After crashing three weeks/livestreams in a row, we've decided to put our Elite XBOX livestream on hold, so I haven't really played since 3.0.4

If anyone is having this issue one thing to try is to clear your xbox cache (hold the power button for 10 secs,) then select the Elite tile from the dashboard using the start/menu button (don't launch Elite) and under manage game, saved games, clear the game saves (again, Not in Elite but from the XBOX dashboard) Then when you launch the game it will re-download your save - this fixed the galmap issue for me.
 
I see the changes to the Top 5 boards leave them useless for Power Play. What good is knowing who is undermining if we don't know where? Put the boards back to the way they were before this unneeded c&p change so at least they're useful once again and stop taking away needed information from players!
 
Why, what's at SYNUEFE VM-D C15-10 2 A? Is this some mat farm or money machine Yamiks hasn't made a video about yet?
Some amazing terrain features at least, canyons everywhere 18km deep, huge cliffs, very unusual terrain, possibly more as still searching

Meant to go there over the weekend but as I'm off work for 10 days from Friday I'll have plenty of opportunity :D
Went there this morning, just stunning, it's the new Pomeche.



Lots more images here: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/217963-Planet-showcase-post-your-most-beautiful-shots-that-you-are-really-proud-of?p=6567718&viewfull=1#post6567718

And tomorrow - it's base jump time!

 
Think someone's been caught not watching the end of Yamiks videos... xD
He mentioned its beauty at the very end of this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1TSDOTEbAg ;)
I actually did see that video, and I actually took a break from grinding mats just to fly there, and I actually landed and drove my SRV off a cliff I couldn't see the bottom of. Took about a minute to hit the bottom.

I just didn't recall that that rather obtuse planet name was the same Yamiks had mentioned.
 
market comparison tool broken

Is the market comparison tool broken? I cannot compare the prices between two stations on two different systems that i've just been to.:(


Hello everyone,

We are taking the galaxy servers down now for the 3.0.4 update which has a number of bug fixes. It also reverts the changes made to hot ships and access to outfitting in the 3.0.3 update, which means ships can now access outfitting anywhere except Starports controlled by a faction that has issued a bounty or fine against them.

Details about future crime proposals can be found here.

Estimated downtime is approximately two hours, and we'll communicate here and on our social media channels when the servers are back online.
