      – Changed the position of camera decal 1 & 3 on the Diamondback
      – Fixed Sidewinder landing gear collision issue
      – New shadow profile to improve the quality of shadows in asteroid field locations, the main difference being a reduced amount of adaptability to prevent excessive shadow blurring when distant asteroids are in view.
      – Fixed repetitive audio glitch after CQC Team Deathmatch
      – Closed hole in mesh for the Federal Assault Ship
      – If a button is currently using a default binding then show that in the binding’s option screen rather than just appearing blank.
      – Added a new size 1 slot to the Sidewinder and Eagle and edited the horizons load out for the sidewinder so that it has two cargo in that slot
      – The cockpit canopy can now be repaired by the AFM
      – Fixed Russian Stats page texts shows as missing characters throughout
      – Fix offset mouse pointer on Station menu, shipyard and insurance screen
      – Imperial cutters Mouse Widget is inclined towards one corner fixed
      – If a head tracking library fails to load, even though we have a path to it, then make sure it goes into the error state rather than attempting to load the dll every frame
      – Fix for distant asteroid billboards partially showing through the asteroid models
      – Orca’s bobblehead placement adjustments (wobbly bobbles).
      – System Map VR: – Added the concept of a Base Scale that scales all GUI, planet miniatures and dolly ranges to make everything pleasantly bigger and further away (as we deal with locked FOVs in VR opposed to orthographic)
      – System Map: Add a different global scale to the label manager for VR to make the text larger
      – Ensures that the player’s pilot gender is represented correctly in the cockpit
      – Made the schematics bigger for the construction phases of the Occellus Stations
      – Fixed NPCs not becoming Wanted (if appropriate) or turning red when attacking player in a large ship
      – Wakes created by ships that the local player knows the names of now display the name of that ship. This should help the mission NPCs that ask you to follow their wake
      – Fixed the animation issue with the doors of the vulture
      – Fix for 10cr repair bug
      – Shields regenerate at a much faster rate while docked
      – Fixed Cutter’s decal cameras
      – Ship dashboard GUI still present when viewing Bobbleheads in Outfitting
      – Track CQC gametype when entering matchmaking to prevent entering lobbys of another gametype
      – Fixed clipping bobbleheads in the Eagle
      – Nav markers now have an ‘obscured’ visual state when the location is behind a planet/star
      – Add a Terrain Material Quality setting to the graphics options menu
      – Fixed animation clipping on the nacelle hard point doors

      – Added specialized VR mesh for the outfitting screen
      – Make player ship invulnerable when player’s in a buggy (Temporary for Beta 1)
      – Missiles are now more effective against shields
      – Updated translations
      – Fed fighter drive lighting fixed

      – Make sure that heat sinks are affected by gravity when launched
      – Increased the hopper ammo amount for the fragmentation cannons from 30 to 90
      – Prevent excessive spamming of telemetry from edServer to webServer after a player has followed a jump wake
      – Starter package Sidewinders (and bought) now come with low powered gimballed pulse lasers
      – Add missing mission assassin chatter
      – Imperial Cutter’s Mouse Widget is inclined towards one corner
      – Resized the Standard bullet impact FX game wide to fix the standard bullet impact from being too large when hitting shields
      – You can raise your landing gear while landed via the function panel fixed
      – Turn off proximity warnings in super cruise, they feel odd near planets, and aren’t that helpful anyway
      – Refuel all vehicles in the target ship’s launch bay when docking at a market

      – Increase timed assassination targets spawn rate
      – Generally fix target spawning errors
      – Added new mission icons
      – Add fines to early abandonment where applicable
      – Some reputation/influence/state value fixes

      Xbox One Changes
      – Fix some issues when adding preflight checks to the Xbox controls
      – If ship is destroyed while controller is disconnected, handle when the controller is disconnected in CQC as well as normal play
      – Make sure the session is full error is displayed if that is the reason for not joining a session
      – Don’t show disconnection messages if we’re in the controller disconnect flow
      – Enabled the FOV graphics setting on Xbox to help people compensate against TVs cropping the screen edges off
      – Improve network problems diagnostics messaging
      – Don’t give up on waiting for a voice comms name if the other player is in the unnamedVoiceCommsUsers list and so the name retrieval is still underway

      Server Side Changes
      – Fix occasional transaction server errors for users with very large numbers of friends
      – Slightly retuned background sim to give greater daily influence changes for a given amount of player activity

      Maybe we need to invest in a resettlement facility for incoming explorers… Somewhere to be de-loused and checked over by a psychiatrist before they’re allowed to reintegrate with society at large…

      Although, psychiatric evaluation of our combat wing may show interesting results…

        I thought we didn’t take members unless the had Psychotic Tendencies or were warped more than just a little.

        and seeing if they can make it back through the mail slot after months of being away is more fun that watching them try make a big open landing pad.

      this will probably get nerfed but.

       

      So I decided to fit  Berta with some C2 Dumbfires, make it like a bomber. Found out that they have quite the splash damage. Went to a Medium security outpost, fired one in the middle of a group of turrets and skimmers. Within probably a 40m radius I saw explosions of everything dying. Bombers might just be a thing!

      As posted in the patchnotes, there is a new keybinding you gotta assign.
      Steering options, look for the one without any name/description.

       

      yes steering and roll for airborne mode now seperate bindings

      As per DBOBE’s suggestion tonight Cmdr DaMorgs and myself cleared our save and started the Horizons Sidewinder start

      You begin with a Sidewinder outfitted with a pair of Gimballed Pulse Lasers, a 2E Shield, a 2H Planetary Vehicle Hanger complete with Scarab SRV, a Basic Discover scanner and a 2 ton Cargo Rack, and 1000Cr

      As Harmless, Penniless, Aimless Cmdrs with no Rep, none of the initial missions on the BB at the starting Planet Side Port were available to us, so we just picked up some of the cheap minerals that the Port mined and flew them up to Beagle 2 to sell for a profit.

      2 tons at a time was not going to make anyone rich fast, but fortunately the bulletin board was more promising.
      Three missions were available – A courier mission to Styx, a Courier Mission to Eranin, and a mission seeking “combat expects” of harmless rating or better to meet a contact in the Eranin system, where more details would be provided.

      After a quick check of the Galaxy map to see what was in range, the Starter Sidewinder is less than 7Ly due to the 12 ton PVH, we took all three missions, and quickly headed to Styx, where the time limit make the trip interesting as it came down to can we glide close enough to the planet side port to get there in time. A change of pace to the 1Mm safe disengage, where the 1200 CR payout was big bucks to begin with.

      The first package delivered, we jumped back to Eranin and to Azeban city to make the second delivery.
      A Pirate in a Diamondback Scout tried to interdict, but two experience, if Harmless, Pilots in agile Sidewinder Mk.I mean two pairs of gimballed pulse lasers boiled up the pirate and turned the Lakon scout to slag, and 7000 Cr bounty each.

      Flush with cash and a few D grade modules later we met out contact just outside the orbit of Azeban, and was told the Gold Partnership of Asellus Primus wants us to go to LP 98-132 to kill 2 pirates.

      We would be paid 25000 CR each for this but as a lawless Anarchy, no additional bounties.
      Undeterred we proceeded on wards.

      Cmdr DaMorgs arrived at the RES and make short work of two Mostly harmless Pirates.
      I was detained by an interdiction and when I arrived the RES was miners only.

      It was at this point that we released we also had the Eagles in the Shipyards (Beagle 2 in fact) so Cmdr DaMorgs returned there to out fit the Eagle, and fit a KWS, which I searched for my pirates.

      The First was a Asp Explorer in a USS, who was unable to keep a nimble sidewinder off his tail and fell without landing a hit in return.
      No bounty but lithium and Titanium spoils to sell later on a black market in Azeban

      I dropped into a distress call as DaMorg was jumping into the system, and to my surprise it was the FNS Orion, a Farragut Class Battle Cruiser under attack!
      We drove off the attacked but killed none of them.
      Sadly the FNS Orion was not forth coming with any Bonds so we left her listing and on fire.

      The Compromised Nav Beacon was where a Asp scout with a 25000 Cr each bounty was found thanks to DaMorgs KWS
      We engaged it but the pilot was Elite and so was packing and proficient with Chaff SCB and a Pair of Class 2 Plasma Accelerators, which nearly melted both of us on a good hit.
      Fortunately lesson learned the Asp could not keep 2 nimble ships off her tail and we boiled up the pilot.

      The Bounty from the KWS was from Styx so we jumped there to collect it.
      There was a long range cargo mission for 12000 but the Sidewinder could not make it without an expensive FSD upgrade, so we instead took a mission to deliver some Federation Propaganda to a Surface Colony in the Opala system

      Another race against the clock where the ability to glide the ship to that sub 7.5 range was a good skill to develop, Cmdr DaMorgs winning the race we had there by a mere 3 second, Eagle Mk.II vs Sidewinder Mk.I

      The Colony had no missions for us, so we just decided for fly about and look for trouble, which was about 10 km away on one of the near by mountains. It was a mining operation run by the criminal minor faction in the system, the Opala Blue Brotherhood or some such.

      An SRV on the ground and an Eagle in the Air make short work of the Skimmers and Turret that defended the operation and we popped the storage canisters to get our ill gotten gains.
      Due to the extreme slope of the mountain, DaMorgs and I ended up collecting the mineral fragments at the bottom of the mountain, my SRV tumbling down and ending up at 12% hull despite it only being ~0.10G on the planet

      2 tons of minerals each collected, we went to fly back to the local colony only to find it was hostile.
      Wait, the minuting operation was lawless! we protested, then realized the colony was run by the Opala Blue Brotherhood
      Oh that explains there hostility and general loathing to the idea of letting us land and sell the minerals we just took from them by force.

      Back to Beagle 2 Landing it is then, and as a High Tech system , might give us a fair price on the minerals, thought not as much as a refinery, we called it a night.

      Great story Blain!

      I’m a bit bummed with the DBX, without losing my explorer gear: I cant carry an SRV and shields at the same time.  Did a quick trip to Pleadies the other night, landing on rough surface without shields is suicide.

      Loved the story Blain, very interesting read.

      With the cleared saves, is that just for the BETA, or it affects the main game too? I have seen a couple of guys on Twitter restart…I can see the draw, but can’t say I’d do it. I’d rather buy another account.

      Yes, needing a shield to land is something that should be questioned.


       

      Just for the Beta

      Testing the new start was one of the new requested test; and things are still 10% price so it is still faster paced.

      No plans on a reset for Horizon as I did restart at 1.3

      BETA 5 confirmed for patch night tonight.

       

      Release date has been confirmed for the 15th, that seems awfully close for the number of bugs still in the Beta, but hey ho lets go.

      Flying the Cutter close to Reed Port’s host planet was hairy – gravity overcomes your ship’s vertical thrusters under 100m altitude – there were a few ’emergency boosts’ to relative safety – and that’s a mid to small planet 😮 – never really noticed that effect even in the Python
