We have created one centralized media blog for Distant Worlds. It’s fresh, and needs your content – send me your submissions today!
PC Gamer published an article about the Distant Worlds expedition.
Katejina created this great expedition member profile for me:
She has done a whole lot of these already; check them out! And if you are signed up with the Distant Worlds expedition, that thread contains info on how to get your own!
Hey Guys – I decided to show all posts on the frontpage. If you’d like the “in character only” view, there’s a link for that in the menu.
I felt the old layout was too confusing, and some of the updates I posted were hidden behind too many clicks. This will become especially relevant as I embark on the DIstant Worlds Expedition, where I intend to cover the “meta stuff” as well (to the best of my ability) and not just the CMDR Bartmoss stuff.
Just a quick (out-of-character) video of my first landing on a planet, filmed in a Beta version of ED Horizons. Hope you enjoy!
As you surely know, Elite:Dangerous – Horizons has launched.
I haven’t played it a whole lot just yet – my YouTube channel takes priority, and I just started a new job IRL – but I love that we now have actual places to visit.
As I was browsing the forums, I stumbled across the Distant Worlds expedition. It aims to cross the galaxy and reach Beagle Point. I always wanted to do something like this, and having a social group to do it with sounds pretty cool. Plus, there’s the hope that help will be fairly close, should something go horribly wrong.
Exciting times for us space explorers!
Hello Commanders. I’m back. Hiatus caused by different types of things going on in real life.
I’d like to quickly mention one change: I’ve moved my videos to my primary YouTube channel, Have Joystick, Will Travel. All posts should be updated but if you find issues please let me know.
The reason for this is simply one of efficiency – I can’t feed two channels with material. Hopefully, you’ll like some of the non-Elite channel as well! Drop by and say Hi, I’m looking forward to meeting you on YouTube!
Just received this in the mail:
I’m goin’ to Cologne, baby!
I’ve become involved in attempts to solve the mystery of the Unknown Artefact. I’ll write more about this later, but currently I have no “in character” story for that involvement, so I’ll just post some minor information for today.
I’ve been concentrating on building up a list of transcripts of the purrs in the audio signal. So far, I collected 18 sequences, of 111 different “bytes”. There are 36 unique bytes.
- Bytes are usually 5-6 bits, but longer and shorter ones are known
- No byte so far has a triple or longer sequence of consecutive bits
- The distribution is clearly not even. See the following graphs:
I actually expected the “reputation grind” for Alioth to take far longer than it did. I didn’t really check the time, but it took me two longish game sessions. Call it 6 hours, but that’s a very rough estimate. I did mess up two missions, and lost cargo once to a nasty pirate interdiction that I barely escaped from with my life, and had to re-purchase goods for those.
I did not make a lot of money running missions, so when you undertake this, you might want to have your 6+ Million ready. In hindsight, it would have been more efficient to just run more trade and pay the full price for an Asp, but I am sure the Alioth Permit will come in handy in some other way.
Besides, it’s all about testing things, so I did not mind this at all.
