Elite Dangerous: Odyssey has finally arrived, meaning it’s time to hop outside your ship and tottle around on the surface of millions of planets. Trouble is, some commanders have been running into numerous technical problems as they’ve explored the massive space game on foot, and developer Frontier has pushed out a hotfix to address some of the most pressing issues.
Hotfix 1 should offer “general stability improvements” and “general mission improvements,” and it corrects some errors in the initial tutorial – such as the enemy dropship occasionally not showing up to drop off the bad guys you’re meant to get into a shootout with. Another error in the tutorial prevented commanders from using the express lift that takes you to the hangar and, crucially, your own spaceship. That’s been fixed, too.
The hotfix also corrects some “colouration issues” with organics, as well as a crash players ran into when trying to edit their keybindings. For a hotfix that’s arriving just over 24 hours after the expansion launched, it’s a pretty extensive list, all things considered.
