Chapter 4 and Inara update

The Chapter 4 (game update 3.3) is going to be released today and it brings many truly great improvements to the game! As was the beta ongoing, multiple changes and improvements were made on Inara in the past month, to reflect the Chapter 4 changes. There is another batch:
  • Updated commodities, modules, ships, etc. to match the game update 3.3.
  • Minor faction pages were updated and improved to reflect BgS changes and to provide a solid overview of the faction. However, it may take a while until the states and happiness for all the factions will be populated after the game update. Also, until then, the overview may provide odd results (based on the old BgS states)
  • The squadron settings were extended for in-game names, activities and other properties. There is recommended to set all the stuff appropriately, otherwise your squadron may not appear in the squadron listing correctly (or at all, in the search). There were made also changes how is squadron platform determined (it's now tied to the in-game names/platforms), so please double-check that.
  • There was added a detailed squadron search.
  • Fixed issue with disappearing supported factions in the squadron edit.
  • Added squadron activity overview percentage in the roster, visible just to wing members.
  • The general search was extended for ship names, their idents, in-game commander names and in-game squadron names, including their IDs.
  • Improved precision of community goals contributions estimates.
  • Inara API and journal imports updated to reflect the changes and improvements made to the journals (for example, there is a reputation updated for all engineers at the session start, minor factions reputation is added, etc.). Don't forget to update to the latest version of your favorite tool (EDMC, ELA, EDDiscovery, etc.).
Enjoy the new exploration, mining, squadrons and simply everything else...

Entry #71 - Catching up

Commander's Log, 12 Dec. 3304, I heard from Leonard today. He was checking in from an undisclosed system, while on maneuvres for the Empire. I was happy to see his face on the vid-screen; it's been more than a year since last we saw each other. He looked well and much more mature than the scrawny...

The Date

“Saud Kruger, Foxtrot, Echo, Romeo. The imperial flight operations bureau wishes you a pleasant and productive visit, commander,” a soft and beautiful voice welcomed me at Mackenzie Relay. “Pleasant and productive it certainly will be, ma’am.” After I was granted docking permission on pad four-two,...

It's been a wild week. I wasn't even sure I'd be making this entry a few nights ago, but here I am, so best I get to it. After I left Imperial space for the last time, I picked up a signal I couldn't identify. I figured it for background noise at first, but as I neared Mant for that salvage job, it became...

Mamba and Krait Phantom Released

Two new ships marketed towards independent pilots, the Mamba and the Krait Phantom, have just hit the market.

Zorgon Peterson issued the following press release for its new vessel:

“If it’s speed and firepower you want, the Mamba is for you. Based on a racing prototype, it’s the fastest commercially available starship, and it sports enough hardpoints for a range of devastating weaponry. Whether you’re leaving competitors in the dust or running rings around those pesky Thargoids, think Mamba!”

Faulcon DeLacy also released a statement for its latest design:

“The Krait Phantom offers true multi-role capability, allowing it to be customised for combat, mining or trading. And for explorers, its impressive jump range means you really can reach out to the stars. This is a ship that can handle it all.”

Introducing the Codex

A new networked database system named the Codex has been released to the galactic community.

The Codex is a joint initiative from the Pilots Federation and Universal Cartographics, which issued the following joint statement:

“We are pleased to announce that the Codex has been automatically uploaded to the onboard systems of all vessels registered with the Pilots Federation.”

“The Commander section of the Codex collates all ship data, including the pilot’s personal achievements, while the Knowledge Base contains information on the galaxy’s most prominent organisations and individuals.”

“The Discoveries section is designed to support deep-space exploration. As well as cataloguing stellar bodies and other phenomena, it also logs confirmed and unconfirmed findings from fellow explorers.”

“We hope the Codex will prove valuable to all Commanders, and we look forward to it being updated with their findings.”

Week in Review

Here are this week’s major stories.

Two corporations have merged to form one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the galaxy. Allied Medical Industries has united with Neosalve Inc. to create Neomedical Industries, which will sell drugs, equipment and services to both Alliance and independent systems.

Independent company Vitadyne Labs has developed new pharmaceuticals that use nanoscale materials to repair cell damage on a molecular level. The company claims the nanomeds can heal injury in a fraction of the normal time, and even slow the ageing process. The Interstellar Health Organisation is reviewing the new medicines.

Nova Imperium has revealed its choice for Emperor – an eighteen year old man named Hadrian Augustus Duval. The group claims that Duval is the grandson of former emperor Hengist Duval, and that he has a legitimate claim to the Imperial throne. The group’s leader, Imperator Mordanticus, has called for Hadrian to replace Arissa Lavigny-Duval.

Journalist Gethin Okonkwo has commented on the Far God outposts found in the Etain system, saying that the logs recovered from the outposts illustrated how the faith attracted people from varied backgrounds. Okonkwo also said that the book he is writing with Dr Alfred Ulyanov would reveal much about the Far God religion.

An obscure cult based in the Zlota system has requested a range of rare items for an arcane ceremony. A handwritten statement from Barnabas Cole, leader of a group named the Children of Tothos, elaborated on the nature of the ceremony. Zlota Federal Holdings, which is thought to have some connection to the cult, is overseeing the initiative.

Finally, a goodwill initiative from the Achilles Corporation has concluded. Chairman Gus Weaver of Achilles confirmed that the company had acquired enough commodities to manufacture replacements for the robots destroyed in the wake of the spy robot scandal. He also reminded consumers that the surveillance program at the heart of the scandal was safely deleted by the company’s latest coreware update.

And those are the main stories this week.

Mysteries of the Far God

Journalist Gethin Okonkwo has discussed the abandoned Far God cult outposts in the Etain system:

“During my months undercover as a Far God worshipper, I heard only whispered rumours about secret outposts. So the existence of two such settlements, on Etain 4a and 4c, proves that much remained hidden from me.”

“The personal logs recovered from the outposts illustrate how the faith attracted people from varied backgrounds. I was astonished to hear the voice of a man with whom I once eagerly discussed the Far God’s arrival, never realising that he was a Federal agent whose devotion was as fake as my own.”

“The book I am co-writing with Dr Alfred Ulyanov will reveal much about the Far God religion, but it’s clear that many of its mysteries are yet to be uncovered.”
