Frontier have released a pre-weekend patch for Elite: Dangerous, fixing one or two of the issues that arose with the launch of the Wings update earlier in the week.
It’s not a gigantic list of changes, but the relevant Frontier post about it mentions improvements to head-tracking, claiming a bounty or combat bond for a faction now affecting a Commander’s reputation, and a reduction in faction influence changes from trading activities. All of which sound moderately important in the grand scheme of Elite: Dangerous.
Servers apparently went down at 4pm GMT for this update, so unless something went quite wrong there it should be available now.
In addition to today’s update, Frontier has released a couple of videos relating to the Wings additions. The first of two (below) is a straight up trailer, showing some co-operative play between friends and a stand-off with some prospective cargo thieves. It has a distinct lack of casual profanity for online co-op play, but otherwise seems alright.
The second video is a couple of days older, but gives people a bit of a tutorial on the changes introduced to Elite: Dangerous with Wings. I’ve included it since it seems quite helpful.
