is releasing the 1.1 update to Elite: Dangerous tomorrow where it'll be available in beta. The first major addition is the "discovered by" tag which lets explorers stamp their name on a newly discovered system.
AI docking, ship-to-ship collisions, and balancing of dumbfire missiles, shield cells and weapon heat generation is also in the changelog. 1.1 also includes two community goals for Commanders to try out.
A minor faction wants to build their own fancy warship and needs help securing the resources, and another is helping colonise an unpopulated system. The 1.1 update beta is scheduled for tomorrow.
"From here on out, the first Commander to discover a new star system will be credited for their pioneering work with a permanent “Discovered By” credit on the galaxy map. We’re even applying the credit for discoveries in the two months since Gamma," read the latest newsletter.
"It’s another way to make a permanent mark on the Elite: Dangerous galaxy, and it’s not alone. One of the new Community Goals will task players with sourcing materials for the construction of a Federation or Imperial capital ship."
"Another Community Goal will see players scout out viable locations for a new starport, and work together to transport the vast amount of material needed to see the starport constructed week by week in-game."
