Discovery Scanner - 05/12/2022

Greetings Commanders,

Welcome once again to another weekly Discovery Scanner to swoop us into yet another week ahead in the Elite Dangerous Galaxy...and what a week, considering the latest events and happenings.


Game News

Following the release of Update 14, all of the Elite Dangerous teams would like to extend a huge 'thank you' to all Commanders for their thoughts, feedback and interaction following this quite monumental step forward in the shape and progression of The Galaxy.

We're aware of a number of issues reported since the update deployment and would like to reassure all that they have been noted.

As soon as we have more information on further actions based off feedback, we will of course let you know via our usual social channels, here on web and also via the News and Bulletins section of the Elite Dangerous Forums.

To recap the discussion of Update 14, you can hop over to the following links for both the Live/4.0 release thread and Legacy release thread.


Galnet News Roundup

Speaking of latest news, the latest weekly drop of Galnet News Roundup went live last Friday.

Recap all of the past week’s news articles in our fun and friendly Forum space or link direct to each to get to grips with the current Galaxy happenings.

Thargaid: Flee from Sol

We were delighted to see this wonderful creation along with the warmest of intentions behind it, gracing the Elite Dangerous community conversations over the course of the weekend.

"The Canonn council are delighted to have three members and Dr Arcanonn himself participate in a Christmas musical number this year to raise money for a wonderful charity, Special Effect."

To further quote: "The video is an adaptation of an ancient 20th Century charity song and like the original, features a cast of celebrities from around the galaxy. who have agreed to sing. Perhaps you might recognise some."

Additional Commander Credits listed:

As always Commanders, thank you so much for sharing your continued passion for discovery across the Galaxy and beyond. 

Here’s to a productive week ahead, once again!

Fly VERY safe.

See you in the black o7
