Discovery Scanner - 06/02/2023

Greetings Commanders.

Welcome to another week beginning in the galaxy.


Game News

UPDATE 14.02.

Last week saw the release of Update 14.02 for Elite Dangerous 'Live'. You'll all no doubt be familiar with what was included in the deployment, however if you'd like a recap you can find the update notes here.

Along with the deployment came some value changes to AX Combat Rewards, which required further clarity for Commanders as to why these changes were made. This information was shared in the form of a Forum post soon after the 14.02 release and can be found here.

We're all aware of the confusion these unannounced balances brought to many of you and once again we'd like to thank you whole heartedly for your patience as we compiled the details for you all.


To add to last week's communication update, we released acknowledgement of two primary known issues from community reports and discussions.


Last week we released a server side fix to address an issue around 'Unresponsive Fleet Carrier Services', which can be recapped here via the Forums.

As an additional acknowledgement this morning, we'd also like to add the following, after increased reports over the weekend:

As mentioned, we are aware of additional raised issues following update 14.02, such as stability around barnacle sites and more, however as soon as we have any further information to share we'll let you know.

Please do continue to contribute to the issue tracker reports with your own evidence and feedback - it supports in the team's investigations to no end.


Class 5 Experimental Weapon Stabilisers are now available!

Incase you missed it, GalNet released an article last week announcing the release of Class 5 Experimental Weapon Stabilisers.

"The experimental weapons stabiliser increases the number of AX weapons which can be installed on a ship. The class 3 variant released last week increases the limit to five, whereas the class 5 variant released yesterday increases it to six."
