    Bring back old local station news style!

    I just stumbled upon it skimming through some old chat logs, but I remembered that a long time ago, the local station news you could find weren't the purpose-built statistics reports with only dry information, but rather we had multiple fictional news outlets that would randomly generate news...

    Discussion Backend API (cms.elitedangerous.com) Down???

    I have at least 2 different bots that check https://cms.elitedangerous.com/api/... for information regarding ED and Galnet news, but both endpoints seem to be down, and have been down for at least a week or more. Were these perhaps moved??? The following specific URLs are the ones I normally...

    BREAKING NEWS: Marlinist Minister Aaron Whyte Voted Out of Office After Granting NMLA Asylum

    Elections held in Hyades Sector RO-P b6-2 resulted in a dramatic reversal of fortunes for Minister Aaron Whyte and his Marlinism Reformation Party. On April 16 when the survivors of the Neo-Marlinist Order of Mudhrid and their leader Landgrave Delacroix arrived in the system seeking asylum...

    I apologize that I may be interrupting any conspiracy theorycraft or discussions on in-game realpolitik, however upon logging into Elite Dangerous this morning I happened upon this queer notification on the main menu and could not help myself but to read the full article. I nearly spat out my...

    Elite Dangerous in game Social Media and Influencers

    So I was just brainstorming a small idea and while doing that I came across an idea regarding the social media in Elite universe and how it works. We the CMDRs of pilots federation get our news and all the latest happenings through Galnet which is easily accessible all across the galaxy, but...

    Galnet API URL in question: https://cms.elitedangerous.com/api/galnet The Archive URL: https://community.elitedangerous.com/en/galnet When processing the JSON file, I found that some of the dates don't match up, and that the API doesn't go as far back as the archive does.

    Re: Sol system in civil unrest as of jan 1 3307. Anyone know What's up? Ps @Galnet What's up with Sol?

    Was looking at Galaxy map and noticed the civil unrest tag. I'm 20000 ly away so have not taken closer look, any relationship to possible protests of Sirius corp. And they're activity that got thargoids upset?

    Galnet compilation

    Has anyone compiled all the galnet articles into a document? Preferably an epub file? I'm running way behind because of a 3-year burnout, the wiki does not read well on my phone, and the apps keep losing my place/deleting articles I haven't read yet. I don't need the powerplay junk, just the...

    NPCs are discussing recent GalNet / local news in chat window?

    Instead of the same couple of phrases they are posting everywhere, it would be great to make NPCs to discuss the recent GalNet or local news in the chat window. It will improve the immersion and also more commanders will know about what's going on and if there are something new in the news.

    What's in a narrative?

    Most of you have read my laments in this week's "protect supplies" community goal thread. The lament boils down to this - it is heavily implied that both CGs revolve around getting supplies for refugees, and yet the bounty hunting CG has nothing to do with protecting supplies. There are no...

    I'm Back!!!

    This thread really isn't about me, but rather the power of narrative and community events. The return of Galnet and community goals tied into that narrative have brought me back into the game like I was in the early days, where I'm actually excited to play the game despite the fact that it's the...

    The GalNet Archive - 10th Sep 3306 - ?

    Welcome to The GalNet Archive. This is as much for my own use as anybody else's, I know they're elsewhere but they don't seem to be on one easy accessible page so I'm putting them on here for future reference. This Archive only covers from the return of GalNet on 10th September 3306 (2020). I...

    Player controlled galnet/ community goals

    Hi Frontier, fellow commanders I had a question about galnet and community goals: as I have read well Frontier has decided that galnet/ community goals are on a hold/ never coming back. I had the idea that players could write articles to galnet and organise community goals. I would propose to...

    GalNet and CMDRs

    If Frontier decided not to update their GalNet news system, why don't let Commanders do that? Like give them right to send news judging by their stats and stuff and everything will go better! They don't even need to create something their own, they could just describe whats happening in...

    Why on earth has GalNet Audio been suspended?

    First of all I want to say I'm a great fan of the Elite series, I played it religiously in the 80s on my Commodore 64 and I love what David Braben has created with Elite Dangerous (Horizons). One thing always stood between me and getting connected more thoroughly to the Elite Universe: there...

    How to make GalNet and the Galaxy feel alive

    A suggestion in response to Kai Zen's open letter to Frontier

    We all know that Frontier is trying to achieve some polish with fleet carriers, and as a developer myself I understand the level of commitment needed. However, universe immersion is incredibly important if we want to keep Elite Dangerous alive. Frontier staff don't have the resources at the...

    Has GALnet run out of juice now?

    Checking Station Repair tonnage often, I noticed GALnet looks.... well.... quite "slim" these days. Has it run dry entirely now? I don't think I've ever seen it down to a mere two (2) Stories.

    A simple fix to (maybe) save Galnet

    It’s easy. Galnet just needs to draw a clear distinction between in game events and pure flavor material. This is how you do it: FDev makes two categories of articles. TOP STORIES OTHER NEWS TOP STORIES would be reserved only for events with in-game ramifications. Top stories would always...

    Frontier missing a trick....

    Instead of releasing the patches with patch notes of what Frontier have introduced into the game why not have some in-game Tech Corporation release news through GALNET that they are working on some tech and eventually release it through GALNET. Thus giving the game a greater evolving feel rather...

    Galnet vs Game improvement! WELL DONE FDEV!

    So I recently decided to visit Archambault Terminal in Chun Tstar system, following the Galnet article from 25th March about the station being held hostage by Children of Tothos terrorist group. And to my utter delight lo and behold - the station was in lockdown and it was listed as being...

    Galnet voice volume? Quiet and inaudible? Bug?

    I’m docked in some little engineering station. When I listen to the galnet reader in the cockpit the voice is very quiet, very echoey and basically inaudible. When I listen to it from the actual galnet page iI can’t hear it at all. I wiped the audio settings, tried boost, overdrive the sliders...

    Attack on Meene

    What do you guys think of this failed raid of Phoenix Base? They speculate that it was potentially an attempt to steal materials but I have this feeling that is was the cult of the Fargod. I know they were cleared of the negative allegations against them but something tells me they are still not...

    Chapter 3 Galnet News (or lack thereof)

    Why has there only been one Galnet news article mentioning the chapter 3 content. That is they've mentioned that Ram-Tah has picked up energy signals from these 3 huge regions of space that have hundreds of stars. Obviously these locations have now been found. I'm assuming this would be the...

    Lore and history with Galnet Audio ?

    Would it be possible and easy to add a feature where Galnet audio could be set to read out Elite dangerous lore while flying around. It would be a great way for players to get up to speed on all the major lore and history of the game. If its just a matter of adding text to the game it should...

    Galnet news

    I love the galnet news. It’s one of my favorite parts of elite. I downloaded a third party app on my phone so I can read the galnet when I’m not online. The only thing I dislike about the galnet is that we only get new news every 2-3 days. The galnet is serving more than 6.6 trillion people, I...

    GalNet News: Rogue Robot Missing

    The beginning of a new narrative? Or just a random article stub? Older players may remember reading Fred Saberhagen's "Berzerker War" series. Rogue von Neumann machines could replace the already sputtering Thargoid narrative, since that doesn't seem to be considered worthy of news or much Pilot...

    Request for FDev or Knowledgeable clarification Re. Galnet Articles

    Is it actually possible to interact with the events in the galnet articles? I went following up on the "clue" in the burglary story, and went to the station with the start of that book tour, and I can't see anything which makes me think anything is happening, much less that I can interact with...

    In-game external music player controls

    I know this is a long shot, but the single best thing you guys could do to improve the game would be to add an ability to control music and podcast playback from within the game menus. As a longtime VR player, the biggest drag for me has been those long trips in the game where you basically...
