Update 15.02 Release Notes

Greetings Commanders.

Today sees the release of Update 15.02 for Elite Dangerous Live/4.0, where the team have addressed a number of issues for you, following the release of Update 15.

The Elite Dangerous '4.0/Live' servers will be offline from 08:00AM BST until approximately 11:00AM BST, when they shall return with the update available to you.

We'll keep you updated on progress across our social media channels and the Elite Dangerous Official Forum.



  • Fixed some unintended changes to ship flight characteristics in situations where rotational correction was active.
    • Enabling rotational correction should no longer have any impact on the flight characteristics of your ship outside of situations where it is actively correcting rotation (Ticket Reference: ID 44533)
  • Fix for players not being able to plot a route to settlements/ports through the POI panel UI (Ticket Reference: ID 59375)
  • Fix for pulse wave analyser not highlighting high resource asteroids in rings correctly (Ticket Reference: ID 50436)
  • Fix for insufficient number of targets arriving at settlements for Raid and Massacre Missions (Ticket Reference: ID 48424)
  • Fix for "Objective Failed" prompt repeatedly triggering when cancelling an on foot mission (Ticket Reference: ID 50524)



  • The Frontline Turrets that protect ground troops have had their repair timer increased to 10 minutes (up from 2 minutes).
    • Note: The dev team felt that the existing 2-minute timer did more harm than good by preventing interesting interplay between ground and air units at conflict zones around settlements. This change will now allow Commanders with suitably equipped ships to make a conscious choice between continuing to avoid drawing the fire of the turrets or to actively engage them in order to open up a window of opportunity for ground engagement or assaults on dropships.
  • Fix implemented for a crash that could occur when opening the Livery UI.
  • Fix implemented for a crash that could trigger when opening the Squadron Allegiance UI.
  • Fixes implemented to address several crashes that could be caused when coursing around Thargoid Maelstroms.
  • Fix implemented for a crash that could trigger when dropping into a Thargoid Maelstrom in multicrew.
  • Slight adjustments have been made the tactics used by various Thargoid vessels, so that they don't become ineffective at dealing with targets in locations that ship won't willingly navigate such as the crevasses along the structure of a Titan.
  • Fix implemented for Reboot Missions failing if a player logs out and loads back in.
  • Fix implemented for plasma weaponry not dealing the correct damage to Thargoid Revenants.
  • The galaxy map icon for the Maelstrom systems has been updated to that of a 'Titan' icon.
  • Fix implemented for an issue whereby Thargoids could stop spawning during multiplayer AX conflict zones.
  • Fix implemented for unexpected scrolling of the 'Fleet Carrier POI' list when accessed with a non-mouse input.
  • Fix implemented for the Glaive not correctly utilising its anti-guardian effect when in conflict zones around planetary ports.
  • Fix implemented for the Glaive occasionally clipping into the Titan during combat.
  • Fix implemented to address the ability to  use the camera suite to clip inside the Titan.
  • The Titan's missiles can now chase locked targets for a longer duration.
  • Fixed trespass volume positions to allow larger ships to dock without violating them.
  • Fix implemented for some VFX occasionally persisting in a multiplayer instance around the Titan.
  • The Revenant no longer occasionally clip into buildings.
  • Fix implemented for thumbnail generation issue for Petra Olmanova (fun fact, it had something to do with their eyewear).
  • Fix implemented for Revenants occasionally stacking on top of each other during spawning.
  • Softened the extreme colouration of the Pulse Wave Xeno Scanner's highlight effect.
  • Thargoids will stop appearing for the remainder of an Invasion once it has been successfully repelled.
  • Fix implemented for Defend Missions failing to start at mission location.
  • Fixed Human Scavenger NPCs occasionally appearing in Thargoid-occupied systems and even more rarely, Thargoid Revenants sometimes appearing in locations in the post-Thargoid Recovery state.
  • Fix implemented to address issues where some Thargoid vessels became stuck when attempting to enter the Titan.
  • Fix implemented for the Glaive occasionally getting stuck on asteroids in the Titan location.
  • Fix implemented for units rarely not showing up at Titan location in multiplayer instances.
  • Fix implemented for Scavenger Maverick Suit mismatch between thumbnail and suit (this is the one where they all had white helmets).
  • Fixed the Revenant's weapon audio cutting out abruptly at range.
  • Fix implemented for missing Shipkit icons in livery:
    • Cobra MKIII Cyclops Bumper and Wings.
    • Cobra MKIII Medusa Spoiler.
    • Krait MK II Basilisk and Medusa Bumper.
  • Fix implemented for Thargoid Maelstrom icon not indicating when it is behind a planet.
  • Fix implemented for buffeting effect in Thargoid Maelstrom, causing ships to jerk suddenly.
  • Fix implemented for Thargoid portals not visually blending into Maelstrom fog at a distance.
  • Fix implemented for Festive lights and Warm White Light glow being desaturated (the party is back on!).
  • Fix implemented to address an error that could generate when checking commander name entries for duplicates.
  • Fix implemented to address a disconnect when a Commander would try to reset to orbit, when they don't yet have their starter ship.


And with that, Commanders, here's to the roll-out of 15.02 for you!

Thank you so much for all of your continued, valuable thoughts and feedback which help contribute further to quality of life updates for Elite Dangerous, such as this.

See you in the black o7

Elite Dangerous - Update Notes

Greetings Commanders.

Elite Dangerous Odyssey will today receive a small Hotfix to deploy, in order to address a number of outstanding issues. Elite Dangerous: Odyssey servers will not require extended server downtime but will be offline momentarily from 16:45 BST. The hotfix will be available imminently thereafter.


  • A fix has been implemented to address landing issues for Anaconda Pilots. 
  • A fix has been implemented to address frequent stuttering encountered during gameplay, often seen when descending towards a planet surface.
  • A fix has been implemented to address missing facial hair on Commander portraits.
  • A fix has been implemented to address the Shipyard UI softlocking if "Disable GUI Effects" was set to On.
    • This fix benefits both regular and VR Commanders.
  • Commanders are now correctly able use X/Square input when using a controller when navigating on foot. 
    • This issue was caused by multiple inputs being allocated to the same control scheme, which would then incorrectly mask one another.
  • General crash and stability fixes have been implemented.


Known Issues:

The current high priority known issues are listed below but as usual, please remember that these are not the only outstanding issues sitting team side that mean a lot to us.

These are strictly reports which are causing some significant mischief at present still, which we'd just like to offer formal reassurance on as being noted. Thanks so much, as always, for your patience.

  • Unable to access ship functions from within a station (Issue tracker reference ticket
    • As per the report, Commanders have experienced being unable to access any of the ship functions when at the station services screen. Once again, as per the report, Commanders are required to leave Station Services to access ship functions and then go back again.
    • As another has noted, Commanders are unable to 'check their existing missions or inventory, or even consult the System and Galaxy maps without exiting completely from the station UI.'
  • It's been reported that ship launched fighters are failing still to attack Thargoids when giving orders to their pilot NPCs.
  • There's currently an issue whereby opening the System or Galaxy Map incorrectly issues a 'fade-to-black' transition.

Elite Dangerous - 4.0.11 Update Notes

Greetings Commanders,

Update 11 has arrived! Since Elite Dangerous’ inception, Commanders yearned to stand and walk on planets throughout the Milky Way which Odyssey has delivered. Now it’s time to sit down once again, put those feet up, and enjoy one of the most glorious views in the game from the inside: a Fleet Carrier jump.  

This release also brings a range of fixes and features including the brand new Protect mission type. If you’re up for the challenge, these missions will demand more of Commanders than previous types. Read all about them and everything else in Update 11 below:

Fleet Carriers

  • Interiors have been added to Fleet Carriers to enjoy on-foot. These include:
    • Main Areas
      • A main concourse and hangar lobby.
      • A Command Deck with an additional area for the owner and their Wing.
      • A seating area for safe Fleet Carrier jumps.
    • Optional Areas & Services
      • Bar
      • Vista Genomics service desk
      • Pioneer Supplies store
      • Shipyard access point (included with the Shipyard service)
  • On-foot access to the shipyard is now available (added automatically if the Shipyard service is enabled).
  • Service tariffs can now be set individually, allowing control of each service’s costs (Universal Cartographics and Vista Genomics do not use the tariff system).
  • The Fleet Carrier Livery has been moved into the same environment as Outfitting.
  • The Fleet Carrier Livery now includes a number of concourse themes.
  • A small amount of random delay was added for landing pads retracting during jump prep for aesthetics.
  • The Fleet Carrier section of the Pilot’s Handbook now describes new features and how to use the new bartender functionality.  
  • A lack of notifications for Fleet Carrier jumps until 10 seconds beforehand was fixed.


  • It is now possible to sit in all chairs and barstools found on all concourses (albeit one at a time).


  • New “Protect” missions ask Commanders to defend against criminals attacking delivery routes. These missions pose a new challenge in both combat difficulty (teammates recommended) and time-response required. To account for these, factions will offer higher sums than usual.  
  • Fixed an issue where missions could be repeatedly abandoned to produce a strong negative influence on the faction offering.  
  • Fixed an issue with shared missions not displaying correctly when in a failed state.  
  • Changed the settlement mission givers’ compass icon to match the concourse mission giver icon to distinguish between new missions givers and existing mission targets.  
  • Fixed a legal Collection mission asking you to collect an illicit item. Naughty.  
  • Fixed some incorrect text in a Sabotage mission.


  • Added the new cargo loader used in the new Protect missions to various settlements.  
  • Fixed a control point being inaccessible at a specific settlement type during Conflict Zones.  
  • Fixed corpses clipping through the floor.  
  • Added and adjusted ammo crate positions to improve distribution.  
  • Floating consumable boxes were brought back down to Earth (or relevant body). 


  • The on-foot friendly-fire system has been extended to include turrets, skimmers, and ships.
