2.3: Launch date for the beta announced

The update 2.3 Commanders should have been released this week, as previously announced by Frontier. However, they have encountered some technical problems in recent internal beta deployments, and these concerns have to be resolved before public deployment. Among these known issues: Multicrew connection, crashes with the new cameras, and chain missions not spawning in chain. With these in mind, we better understand why our long awaited beta will have to wait a little longer.

This said, a new release date for the Beta update 2.3 Commanders has been announced: Monday 27th February!

I invite you to read the summaries below, or directly to open the page Everything about Commanders of our website.

  • [Network] Support for IPv6 will be tested during beta 2.3! The latter uses a 128-bit address instead of the 32-bit IPv4 and has the advantage of communicating directly with the machines without using NAT conversion address, which causes many problems when connected to Peer-to -Peer (P2P) as used in our technologies. If your ISP offers the IPv6 option and the game attempts to connect to another player with the same option, it will take precedence. If this does not happen, IPv4 will be used. The two techs can be used together, or only a single one. I strongly recommend you to read the following docSourceHoward Chalkley, Senior Programmer
  • [Graphics] The console argument for changes in graphics don’t apply – we have separate settings and render paths for the consoles, both of which are higher than our min spec PC anyway. – SourceMichael Brookes, Executive Producer
  • [Graphics] My apologies for not responding sooner, this issue has been on my list to chase up for a while. The reason for the difference being observed on the rocky worlds is the change to the new material system – in theory this is more accurate as it uses the chemical properties to determine the colour (obviously I’m simplifying a bit here!), however the problem is that those colours were based on Earth standard colouration for those materials, and most of those are beige/brown rather than the colours you might observe in the myriad of other possible conditions. We’re currently working on a more flexible material system, and this will necessitate a fresh balance pass on these. That’s not going to be in 2.3 though. – SourceMichael Brookes, Executive Producer

Mysteries: Ancient sites and Conflux/Hawkin’s Gap/Formidine Rift

▲ Ancient sites

We continue to discover new ancient sites on the surfaces of certain planets. It becomes « increasingly easy » for explorers to collect the 101 Guardians’ data thanks to the latest updates to our guide. This still remains a good 15h of farming with a 201M credits reward: 13M400k credits per hour. If you are a villain of the Empire, and if you trade slaves, then profit is lesser! *Wink at Lestin*

Feel free to read the data, or directly process it yourself!

  • Complete Guardians knowledge base, Tech, History, Language, Biology and Culture;
  • Collect the Ancient Sites’ data. Made easy with our guide if you are in a group of 4 players or more in the same instance, but the difficulty is much greater if you are alone. You will have to visit more sites in order to collect the data. Good luck!

▲ Conflux/Hawkin’s Gap/Formidine Rift

We have finished retrieving all data from the mysterious areas. Here is a summary of our findings:

  • The expedition is likely to be funded by Sirius Corporation;
  • Pilots must launch beacons/probes in deep space on three well-known areas;
  • These beacons/probes are very heavily guarded and it is forbidden to approach or even talk about them;
  • These beacons/probes are apparently causing damage to the vessels. There are many victims;
  • The equipment is regularly rebooted and suddenly stopped because of these strange technologies;
  • Sometimes, codes are transmitted from these beacons/probes but the pilots don’t understand the messages;
  • The crew goes crazy and feels watched by things.
Formidine Rift

Formidine Rift

  • Alpha Site – Many beacons are launched in space and no one knows why. The staff go crazy, these lights … they call me … this siren song … the lights … join them … CANOPY BLAST BOLTS ACTIVATED. LIFE SUPPORT MALFUNCTION. CREW VITAL SIGNS TERMINATED. SHIP SYSTEMS ENGAGING STANDBY MODE. DISTRESS BEACON ACTIVATED.
  • Beta Site – Discussions about a Dynasty Project, a group of explorers gathered on this point, there are very few stars here and it is dark, which makes the explorers uncomfortable. They have deposited many parcels of cargo. Some FSD jump problems reported, the ship was left on the spot because the FSD module was KO.
  • Gamma Site  – A main ship pilot describes here the strange light signals received from hyperspace, they are in terror. The equipment starts to malfunction, they then reboot all by themselves. Strange thermal signatures are detected but nothing in sight … « someone is there and watch us I’m sure! They do not like the company! »
  • Delta Site – A pilot engaged herself in the expedition with the lure of credits, her role is to drop the weird satellites in space thanks to her Sidewinder. However her ship abruptly stops regularly and the pilot begins to panic. One day the whole ship broke down, it had to drift to a telluric planet, in hope for help.


  • [New] Alpha Site – They ventured very far, there are a lot of stars on their path. The beacons/probes have been launched and the pilots think they are new technologies, without knowing what they are used for. The beacons are deposited near Earth-like planets.
  • Beta Site – Another group interdicted while in hyperspace, the explorers are apparently in a hurry. Asks questions about the Witchspace during hyper space jumps, why these lights? Why these forms? Why these clouds? Witchspace looks different in the Conflux.
  • [New] Gamma Site – Anaconda built for this expedition, a very light one. They drop the beacons but it is better not to ask questions, the beacons’ guards are not very convenient.
  • [New] Delta Site – Same mission, the ship is however badly damaged, they went too fast and the module FSD imploded. The generator no longer holds the charge, and they are caught by a neutron star. Everyone dies.
Hawkin's Gap

Hawkin’s Gap

  • Alpha Site – Their freighter contains strange technological things, like satellites but very bizarre. The crew is not allowed to approach the cargo. All the pilots are eager to return from this long expedition but they prefer here only to Formidine Rift because the rumors tell that the pilots to Formidine Rift become totally crazy, to the point that reinforcements had to be sent for the transport of the cargo. It is said that they saw ghosts…
  • [New] Beta Site – The sender of the message thinks Sirius Corp pays for this expedition. The crew is unhappy, the captain has not been seen for weeks and heavily armed guards protect the probes and they will not hesitate to kill anyone who approaches it. The probes are dropped, they return to the civilisation.
  • Gamma Site – The pilot writing these words is not sure if the hiring comes from the Federation, the Empire or the Alliance, but as long as there are credits to win, he’s in! The satellites they have to operate in EVA are activated by themselves and emit strange noises. The other day, pilots were caught discussing about these satellites… unfortunately this night, the door of the airlock opened, projecting the unfortunates into space … they are all dead!
  • Delta Site – A massive Anaconda fleet, no affiliations, no political signs, no logos … someone with a lot of money had to pay for it. The large fleet then split into smaller ones and the freighter is full of … things, a series of artifacts. Apparently it is for an exploration and surveying of places. Those who deal with these artefacts are not part of the crew, the pilots do not know who they are and the orders are not to look at them and let them do « their thing ».

◘ 23 February – An Alliance spokesperson has announced that a Naval convoy has been attacked in the Rahu system. The spokesperson also confirmed that criminals have begun targeting the convoy with the intention of taking escape pods from the wreckage. They went on to say: « These criminals have just one aim: to abduct Alliance personnel and sell them into illegal slavery. We cannot allow these vile opportunists to take our comrades captive. We are therefore asking pilots to recover escape pods from the wreckage and deliver them to Acharya Station in Rahu. We have also placed a kill order on all wanted ships operating in the system, in support of the rescue operation. »

◘ 23 February – A spokesperson for United Sutekh Future has announced that the organisation has triumphed over the Adad Exchange in the Sutekh system. The conflict began when the Adad Exchange attempted to plunder the remains of a Federal convoy for sensitive military intelligence. When United Sutekh Future learned of the plan, it launched an offensive against the Adad Exchange, eager to prevent the intelligence from falling into enemy hands. Both campaigns received the support of hundreds of independent pilots, but ultimately it was United Sutekh Future that emerged victorious. A spokesperson for the organisation thanked those who supported its operation.

◘ 24 February – A carefully orchestrated heist, involving the theft of a large quantity of meta-alloys, has taken place at Darnielle’s Progress in the Maia system. Security personnel at the starport confirmed that an unidentified Cobra-class vessel was involved in the robbery. After the ship docked at the starport, the pilot and four other passengers disembarked before the ship was serviced and refuelled. Later, the pilot requisitioned the largest available quota of meta-alloys, whereupon the automated units inexplicably loaded it to maximum capacity. The Cobra immediately departed, breaking speed limits and ignoring hails. Attempts were made to track the ship, but no trace of it was found.

Investigations are ongoing. Pilots are asked to report any sightings of a Cobra with the callsign « Lima Uniform Charlie« .

Yue continues the Great Remlok Expedition and is finally on his way back to the Sol bubble!

For those following me on Twitter, you may have noticed that I went on exploration in Northern Ireland. Among other things, I could see the magnificent Giant’s Causeway… there were active obelisks! Apparently, the Guardians love Cheddar.

Two pics that I wanted to share, Yamiks with « Forbidden Love » between a Corvette and a Cutter, as well as the couple Mossemorals, and their pretty DBScout heart <3

Astounding SRV pictures, look at those details! Isaiah Evanson, Sonicride and Zippy.

SpaceBear shared this image, « orange », while Cnmvimn poses with Type 9 ships. The fantastic SpaceBear is always thoroughly exploring.

This great series of pics ends with Miika Sith‘s LEGO Anaconda. Admire the work!
