Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Q&A - Interface and NPCs

But it's got rabbits birds and pigs. I can't see us getting those. I don't think there will be any animals at all on tenuous atmospheres.

I mean we might get cactus-type plants, grassy species, so maybe that was a sneaky hint.

You're thinking too literally. Like, obviously we're not getting actual rabbits hah!

He repositioned the camera to show a poster titled "desert species"... in an update giving us atmospheric desert planets... with as-yet unshown desert species living on some of them. He did so as he said "If you think THAT'S cool..." or words to similar effect... The repositioned shot was perfectly framed on the poster, front and centre. And there's only three weeks until the alpha release date.

If there isn't a video about lifeforms between now and then, I'll be very surprised.

You've got me partially not unconvinced, perhaps ;) which is a lot more than I was before!

In the dev diary "sphere of combat" theres a screenshot of three players standing on an airless rock, 3 ships and an SRV. That SRV is empty.
Another hint in yesterday’s livestream - when asked about where you’d be able to change your suits or loadouts: “at your Ships or SRVs” - and they also reiterated that you can physical multicrew and deploy in someone else’s SRV. Both, to me, suggest we’ll be getting out of the SRVs.

One thing I didn't think they'd mentioned before was that to Physical m/c you need to be in the same location - I wonder how that will go down as one of the advantages of m/c is that you can remotely play with friends, and that was always seen as useful as people aren't always in the same place ...

I can see some toys being ejected from prams over this one :)

I expect you’ll still be able to do the normal telepresence multicrew but if you want to play with the SRV or go walkabout you’ll need to make the extra effort.

I’m sure some people will want concessions to gameplay and instant transfers - we’ll have to see how fast the taxi system is for on-foot players, I suppose.

I think the 'telepresence means you can't walk about on legs' will make sense to most, but I don't see why you can't remote-drive in an SRV. I can see that causing a lot of 'I was playing with my mate yesterday and I could get in the SRV, but today I can't - why?' type questions. Plus remote SRV driving has already been requested a lot for m/c. I guess we'll see in less than 3 weeks if they added it :)

Sounds good - a chance for FDev to clean up the telepresence SRV/SLF disparity.

Now then, how about allowing me to deploy in a fighter, dismiss the mothership, and use it as a skiff? They’ve got landing legs in the outfitting screen...
