Greetings Commanders,

The Elite Dangerous servers will be offline for all platforms at 11:30 AM (UTC) today for approximately 30 minutes as we apply the 3.3.04 patch.

Thank you for your patience and we'll see you in the black!

Please find the patch notes below:


  • Fixed an issue where Xbox clients failed to connect to the different comms channels


  • Updated 'Classic Context' control scheme to allow the SRV boost button to work correctly once again, and to remove the conflict between handbrake and cycle fire groups
  • Note - we have had to reassign and in some cases remove some shortcuts. The full list of changes are:
- Moved headlights and cargo scoop to the Y/Triangle button and d-pad directions
- Moved open discovery and camera suite to X/Square button and shoulder buttons
- Moved cycle fire group to Y/Triangle and right d-pad
- Removed galaxy map and system map shortcuts (can still be accessed from left hand panel)​


  • Fixed a crash that could occur when handing in a wing mission
  • Fixed crash that could occur when destroying skimmers


  • Stopped the 'System Scan Complete' message spamming the player


  • Removed the ability for players being able to incorrectly jump huge distances when their ship was without fuel
  • Fixed some visual artifacts that could occur in Thargoid conflict zones


  • Fixed motherlode asteroids not spawning the appropriate material chunks when correctly destroyed by a Wing of players


  • Fixed a variety of situations that could cause players to be disconnected whilst playing
Good to see the superjump exploit was fixed!

I feel like it'd only be fair though, to remove discovery tags that were gotten through cheating, like the ones on the Ex Cancri cluster and NGC 188.
NGC 188 was visited a few days ago by a player that cheated, and if it can ever be reached legitimately, i feel like it's unfair to be beaten to the punch by someone who cheated..
Network fixes is gud! CHEERS for the update as ever and Happy Monday ..

Thanks for the patch notes, this trend of having them *before* the release is really appreciated.

On the other hand, given the still great number of open issues, can we get an up to date known bugs list somewhere in the Bug report forums so we can avoid some n-uplicated posts over there?

  • Stopped the 'System Scan Complete' message spamming the player

"System Scan Complete"
"System Scan Complete"
"System Scan Complete"
"System Scan Complete"

Thanks! :D this was a big one!

It needs to stop reporting it in text, specifically asteroid clusters, because that appears in the FSS view as you're zooming in on planets and stops it showing you the type of planet (the description is over-ridden by the blue-coloured messages).

I wonder if you might look into the planet information not displaying correctly in the DSS. Half the time you need to zoom out and back in again for it to display.
