The Enclave - Overview of Phases

Hello Commanders,

The second Interstellar Initiative, The Enclave, begins July 4. Check out the post below for more information!

What are Interstellar Initiatives?

Interstellar Initiative are a series of in-game events and narratives that utilise our existing in-game systems, such as Community Goals and Scenarios, to provide narratives that, with the influence of Commanders, can have lasting effects on the galaxy!

Check out our second Incoming Transmission video to find out more about The Enclave.

Instead of individual posts throughout the course of the event, we'll be periodically updating this thread with details and updates as they develop.

Overview of Phases


Phase 1 (July 4)

Meta-Alloys Reportedly Growing Scarce

Aegis Research has issued a statement amid growing concerns that meta-alloy harvests in the Pleiades Nebula have slowed dramatically. A number of sources claim that Thargoid barnacle sites have recently ceased producing materials.

The situation was addressed by Professor Alba Tesreau of Aegis Research:

“Thargoid structures remain poorly understood, so we can only theorise why the barnacles in most Pleiades systems have grown barren. Our leading hypothesis is that these sites have been over-exploited in recent years, and humanity has simply exhausted this resource.”

“What is certain is that meta-alloys are both a valuable commodity and a vital component of anti-xeno technology. It is of paramount importance that we maintain the supply of this material.”

“Therefore, Aegis Research is spearheading an initiative to identify an alternative source. We ask the galactic community to support us by providing exploration data, in the hope this leads us to undiscovered barnacle sites.”

Independent pilots who wish to participate can do so by handing in survey scans to The Oracle in the Delphi system between the 4th and the 10th of July.


  • Meta-Alloy production from Barnacle Sites (in the Pleiades) will start to dwindle, threatening the availability of Meta-Alloys. As this commodity becomes scarce, the price in which markets will pay for Meta-Alloys is bound to increase.
  • Community Goal - Aegis Research will request the service of Commanders to deliver Exploration Data to The Oracle in the Delphi system, a combined effort to locate a new source of Meta-Alloys.

The next phase will be announced after Phase 1 has ended.

April Update - Patch 1

Greetings Commanders,

We have released an update for Elite Dangerous. April Update, Patch 1 is a minor update containing fixes and improvements.

Commodities Market
  • Stopped allowing players to attempt to buy more goods from a market than it can actually supply
  • Increased the acceleration when choosing the quantity of commodity when buying or selling
  • The sell pop up now defaults to max amount of the chosen commodity you're carrying
  • If the player is currently docked at the station that is also set as the saved comparison market, the comparison column and its header will update and use the galactic average prices to calculate the profits
  • If the player doesn't have Horizons, planetary surface markets are not considered when looking for best prices in the 'also consumed by' / 'produced by' lists
Crashes/Stability
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when using the FSS mode
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when exiting the game
  • Fixed a crash that could occur when sat in a dock
Damage Balancing
  • Fixed issue that caused more damage to be applied to SRVs when in multiplayer sessions
Engineering

  • Increased the font size for the remaining number of jumps
  • Fixed missing 'clear filter' option from the SRV
  • Bookmarked locations will now have an icon to show it's marked
  • Selection UI will now stop at the top and bottom of the list of locations, whilst scrolling through them. A subsequent press of the button will then wrap around to the top/bottom.
  • Added text to explain if a stellar body requires a permit
Performance
