Two new community goals have started. One is food deliveries (Trade) & the other is defending the shipments (Combat). Both are based out of Stillman Hub in HIP 22550

 

https://inara.cz/galaxy-communitygoals/

 

There's also a reward for both goals - 'If successful, the Free Marlinists of Carinae in conjunction with other Marlinist factions will give the top 75% of pilots a fully engineered, focused and lightweight point defence module.
The module will be placed in storage at Stillman Hub in the HIP 22550 system by the 23rd of January 3307.'

I signed up for the combat CG earlier today, managed to get around 3 mil in bounties, which was top 25% (at the time the screenshot was taken).

 

I'll be taking the carrier out there again to do some more over the weekend.

Did some more today, ended up with around 30 mil in bounties. Managed to push to the Top 10% for the CG (as of when I logged off earlier), which is currently on Tier 2/5.

 

My carrier is in HIP 23155 (about 5LY from the CG system). If I don't do more tonight, I'll probs do a bit more tomorrow.

The combat CG is over, making it to Tier 5. I ended up in the top 25% with about 32 mil in total bounties, with another 30 mil on top of that.

 

The food CG is still ongoing (Tier 3/5), but I grabbed my reward money & jumped the carrier back to LHS 215.

 

Apart from that, I'm still planning to do a Guardian site trip with the carrier at some stage.

FDev had a starport tour stream earlier this morning & they posted the tour of a orbital station's hub as a standalone vid,

 

 

And the alpha rollout has been posted. The phases are planned to be released weekly, but could be extended if they need more feedback - https://forums.frontier.co.uk/threads/elite-dangerous-odyssey-alpha-rollout-plan.567846/

Some more alpha from players coming in from ObsidianAnt recently. It is very alpha, but it's interesting to see how it's going to look/feel. Interesting to see different tools and cutting access panels, using keypads etc. I wish they'll add more little "mini games" like that. More interactive stuff, like Among Us. Otherwise yeah, cutting a panel for 1000x time will get stale.

Yeah, once the phases start rolling out, the alpha should (hopefully) get more interesting. The tools are nice (especially the arc cutter), good for scavenging, bypassing security/defenses & stuff like that. We're yet to access the other tool for exploration which is added in Phase Three.

 

It's Phase Two I'm looking forward to, being the combat-focused one, that supposed to add 'combined arms' faction warfare (essentially ground-based conflict zones). In the first phase, combat has been a disappointment. The gunplay definitely needs more polish & enemies sometimes feel a bit 'spongey' for my liking. I hope with the combat suit & possibly some more weapons, it might make it better, but only time will tell. The guns available atm are alright, but some of their physical appearances are meh. The kinetic guns look like nerf guns & the laser guns look like some obscure artist designed them. Considering what ship-mounted kinetic & laser weapons look like now, it would be nice to see the handheld guns take some design cues from them at some point. (And yes, I want a handheld Multi-Cannon!)
