After succesfully interdicting a NPC, I now have to wait a few seconds before being dropped to normal space.
...and the update wiped 1% off my Exploration ranking. Was 71% as I'd just handed in data hours earlier. After update it was back to 70%. Booooo.
AFAIK it is because FDev launcher read and verify all game content on disk when updating. Steam just update modified files.Intrigued why the non-steam account I have takes so long. Steam took seconds - 47Mb if memory is correct.
'Direct' account is several minutes in and predicting 10 minutes more.
There'll be an update for the PC version of Elite Dangerous at around 10:00 UTC for maintenance purposes. This should not affect anything in-game and is expected to require zero down-time.
So with a number of issues reported already in this thread in relation to the latest patch, any chance of an update from the powers that be? I mean how easy would it be to test the patch before release? Or maybe supply some patch notes so we know what has been altered. Not much to ask.
