Community Event / Creation LAVE RADIO - A podcast about Elite Dangerous

Not entirely sure where you got the idea of dev's actively participating in the new CG's (e.g. "piloting Thargoid ships") but, fun tho' the speculation was, I GUARANTEE (at forfeit of a large dinner plate with some words on it) that this won't happen. FD even acknowledged that they can't manually afford the time to keep up with player submitted Galnet news ... there's absolutely zero chance that they can afford to have people in-game actively involved in running CGs (let alone issues re: time zones, different languages, instancing issues, etc). Sorry - just resetting expectation for listeners excited by this possibility.
 
Yup. Definitely a Safe Plate.

I think that was Shan just spitballing about Dev's flying the thargoids.
I was yes..

In some MMO's I played the Dev's controlled the opposing monsters to make it more fun and challenging. It was just for a single event though, not something that lasted a week.

Cue Adam or Dav or even worse one of the QA Team, deliberately taking control of a Thargoid one night and flying it over to Lave :D

Although being serious, I don't even know if FD's dev magic allows them to do that and you're right it's not something that could be maintained for more than a couple of hours (probably on a Saturday night with some beers!)

That I'd like to see. Drunk Thargoids over Lave :D
 
Wish I'd had this to hand yesterday but, re: progress on the First Great Planetary Expedition, @SushiCW has just produced this fantastic graph showing where everyone is (the waypoints along the bottom are listed from the start on the left to the finish on the right).



Personally I managed to reach the top of Sulphur Peak this morning so I'm feeling on top of the world! 😁
