Development for Elite: Dangerous is moving right along, as evidenced by a recent livestream featuring Frontier founder David Braben that’s been summarized on Reddit.

The Horizons beta will deploy in two stages, with ships coming in the 1.5 release on November 9th followed by the 2.0 patch on November 24th. Schedule your sick days accordingly. Braben also mentioned NPC wingmates and crew, planetary schematic maps, an orrery map, and more, though no time table was given.

The 2.0 patch will also introduce the early stages of crafting, according to the livestream notes. There’s a lot more, too, and you can either click the summary link or watch the full stream, both of which are after the cut.

I try to practice sneaking into the station every time I land. I was also trying to follow his guide to assist off flying. Gee golly do I stink at that.

Yeah we need more of those. I guess he gets more out of the game because he has a plan and skills to follow it up. His comments shows he’s immersing himself in the hide & seek game with his adversary.

It was obvious that he was skilled in handling his ship in addition to reading the map and use it for his benefits. Not only was he mastering to avoid being detected but also was very good in combat when he couldn’t avoid it anymore. Also, the tactics in the space station at the end impressed me.

So this must be a text book example of how you can do it.

The guys pretty awesome. Videos like this make elite seem really thrilling. I have yet to have this level of excitement when I play though

I don’t go there either anymore. The main difference between that forum and these forums here on MOP is that here you can actually deal with trolls, while over there the mods protect the trolls. That’s why we’ve managed to get rid of so many trolls here on MOP. In the Frontier forums people leave instead and the majority left now are trolls, and naysayers who just make fun of SC with sarcasm and ridicule.

I’m actually only going to post one Elite video but I’m doing that not out of bias but because the poster I’m showing does awesome videos. I would point you to any of his videos and say enjoy the ride. But this one showcases the thing that I think Elite does way better than SC and that’s the intricacy of flight. This is all about the guy trying to escape a situation and how he uses the nuanced ship settings to try to escape. Enjoy.

Finally we have just standard fighter combat. I couldn’t find a good PvP video but my morning is wasting away and I want breakfast. Besides I wanted to show you some elite stuff too.
