Definitely interested in a DW3, I just finished engineering the FSD on my next exploration vessel. Could still stand to engineer a few other modules for reduced mass. Wouldn't mind joining a shorter trip to tide me over in the mean time.
What kind of exploration content are you wanting with Odyssey?As Numenor mentioned, there's no chance of a DW3 expedition happening until all platforms have full Odyssey access, as well as FDev delivering exploration-orientated content sometime during the Odyssey season.
Keep up to date with all things Distant Worlds here....

We know there is a bio scanner with plant life to be scanned. What that involves though, I don't know. Hopefully there will be a lot more different POIs too.Odyssey is bringing with it a revamp of planetary surfaces, so that's a big positive. But the devs haven't given anyone a hint of what's planned beyond bubble-centric gameplay and FPS.
At the end of DW2 we posted a brief speculative list of ideas that focus on gameplay beyond the bubble, hopefully content that could come to Elite in future (whether that's during the Odyssey season, or some other expansion further down the line).
So anything along the lines posted there would be welcome...
Link: DW3 Speculation - some ideas.
If there is a Distant Worlds 3, it will surely be absolutely incredible.Just found this thread and would be well up for DW3!
(I was on DW2 but fell out shortly after reaching Sagittarius A due to moving house and other priorities. Was sad I never got to finish it as it was - and still is - the best community/collaborative ED event I'd ever participated in.)
^^^The travelling pace is a little slower than previous editions, as there will be more stuff to do planetside now and it will be very hard to keep up this time if you're busy during the day.
This is posted on the expedition server. From what I gather its the planning of dw3 that's on hold indefinitely since they can't plan for anything until the odyssey comes out of testing/beta for pc's and consoles, especially planet surfaces.Its sad to see the DW3 scouting postponed, but understandable with the state things are at the moment. Will you guys reconsider this later in the year if FD get the update stable?
EDIT. So I've just seen the roadmap for Odyssey and its not good. It looks like the rest of this year will be a beta test. I guess that answers my question about the scouting event.
See you all in 2022
