Profile updates for console commanders and other stuff

Commanders,
as some of you may have noticed, there was added a new feature of Frontier account linking two weeks ago. Now, we are going one step further - there is possible to update your CMDR profile using Frontier's companion API! I believe this will be beneficial especially to console commanders. Please visit your profile and click "IMPORT FRONTIER DATA" button. You will see what to do, but be aware there are some limitations (as described there).

As Frontier's auth service is still being developed and improved, it may require a new authorization if you have linked your account earlier (and that was also a reason why I wasn't in hurry to implement this feature - to ensure you will have as few problems as possible). In a case you haven't noticed that earlier, you can also link your accounts in your Settings, which will grant you a "Verified" status, displayed in your profile and in squadron join requests. Also, a short paragraph covering Frontier data was added to Privacy policy.

There were also other various improvements and tweaks made across the site. I would like to mention especially the "Nearest" search improvements, which can now find systems by the minor faction state.

Enjoy!

Tread the Stars - Martuuk

### The Engineer's Task Elvira Martuuk says she's just an engineer and explorer, but when talking to her I get the odd feeling she's watching my hands really carefully, like I'm going to pull a gun. I'm not armed and I say so. She shrugs like she doesn't care. I'm not totally convinced that sort...

FEAR & LOATHING FOR DISTANT WORLDS 2 - III

“Checking in to Fleet Command basecamp with a head full of Tarach Spice and intentions of committing espionage, fraud, smuggling, and who knows how many other major and minor felonies...are you ready for that?” My co-pilot’s question put an interesting perspective on things. On the one hand, I was...

A big, black door.

Commander Taylor has advised me that he has some concerns with the surface scanner probes and their potential for carrying biomatter into alien ecosystems. I told him his concerns are noted, but only because I think that problem's a little too big for our family to tackle. I agree, however, and I if...

33050121 Distant Worlds Expedition Log #7: Clouds of Strife

We went to go investigate more Lagrange clouds near Omega, thanks to a handy list that was shared with the fleet. Two of them were in the Trifid Nebula that we had already seen, so it saved us some time. First, we went to the Box Nebula, or NGC 6445, which for whatever reason wasn't on my list of planetary...

O Legado de Broo

Quando Mahakali finalmente tocou o solo, não foi com delicadeza. Os anos no comando desta senhora temperamental me ensinaram a apoiar bem o pescoço quando Mahakali vai pousar em algum planeta que tenha o mínimo de gravidade. Principalmente quando está sendo guiada pelo sistema de auto-docagem. O sistemas...

Week in Review

Here are this week’s main stories.

The conflict in the Paresa system has ended with Nova Imperium being defeated by Imperial forces. As the conflict drew to a close, Senator Denton Patreus declared that the isolationists’ forces had been significantly depleted.

In related news, Imperator Mordanticus, the leader of isolationist group Nova Imperium, has been captured by the Empire. His arrest was made during the conflict between Nova Imperium and the Empire in the Paresa system. The Imperator will be brought before the Senate on Friday the 25th of January to answer charges of treason against the Empire.

The Interstellar Health Organisation (IHO) has approved Vitadyne Labs’s nanomedicines as a legal medical product. The IHO has lifted all restrictions, with the caveat that distribution must be handled by an established pharmaceutical company.

The disappearance of famous actor Consuela Knight and the crew of her luxury yacht has sparked a flood of rumours. Independent reporter Flint ‘Firemaker’ Lafosse discussed the mystery on the Rewired news feed, speculating that a Thargoid weapon could be responsible, among other theories.

Finally, the Omega Mining Corporation has requested deliveries of raw materials for a new Orbis starport, to be built in the heart of the galaxy. The construction of this starport constitutes part of the ambitious Distant Worlds II expedition. Project leader Erimus Kamzel stated the objective to be humanity’s first starport in the Galactic Centre region.

And those are the main stories this week.

Mystery of Missing Crew Sparks Rumours

The disappearance of famous actor Consuela Knight and the crew of her luxury yacht has sparked a flood of rumours.

Independent reporter Flint ‘Firemaker’ Lafosse discussed the mystery on the Rewired news feed:

“The scientists say this might be an anomaly that only affects organic tissue. But that doesn’t explain the discovery of Consuela Knight’s half-eaten meal, does it?”

“Others think it could be a new Thargoid weapon that disintegrates humans while leaving ships intact. Or maybe the cultists were right, and the Far God has started snacking on individuals before it arrives to eat the whole universe.”

“For all we know, this has been happening to ships for years. Maybe it usually gets hushed up, which is harder to do when a big-name celebrity vanishes. Which of us might be next? Think about that next time you jump into hyperspace…”

Imperator Mordanticus Captured

Imperator Mordanticus, the leader of isolationist group Nova Imperium, has been captured by the Empire. His arrest was made during the conflict between Nova Imperium and the Empire in the Paresa system.

Chancellor Anders Blaine made a pronouncement on behalf of Emperor Arissa Lavigny-Duval:

“With its fleet destroyed, Nova Imperium’s seditious agenda has been halted. The so-called Imperator, Duke Kaeso Mordanticus, will be brought before the Senate on Friday the 25th of January to answer charges of treason against the Empire.”

Political journalist Cassia Carvalho commented in The Imperial Herald:

“For the emperor to assemble the entire Senate is a rare occurrence. It seems likely that she will make an example of Mordanticus, perhaps with a public trial.”

“lthough Nova Imperium survives in the Paresa system, the loss of both its fleet and military commander may have delivered a mortal blow to the isolationist cause.”

Nova Imperium Defeated in Paresa System

The conflict in the Paresa system has ended with Nova Imperium being defeated by Imperial organisation Yupini Limited.

As the conflict drew to a close, Senator Denton Patreus made the following statement:

“With the aid of our loyal Imperial auxiliaries, the isolationists’ forces have been significantly depleted. Let this be a warning to others – the Empire will not tolerate insurrection.”

Pilots who participated in the conflict can now collect their rewards from Dyson City in the Paresa system.
