Here's a quick and dirty summary of the LaveCon Q&A with Frontier. As you might now, there are a whole host of Frontier Developments guests attending, including Michael Brookes, Adam Woods, Sandro Sammarco, Dav Stott and Mark Allan.

Thanks to CMDR Jovian Hull who posted this summary list on reddit.

  • New hotrod skins. Eagle, Cobra, FDL, Conda.
  • FDEV will support calls for the expansion of a Jaques bubble.
  • CGs out of Jaques CGs. Will run month long (because so few are out there)
  • In Game Commander Journal in 2.2 An actual content announcement. Journal will dump to text file for TP apps
  • Tourism Destinations - Very far distances away. Have objects to be scanned to confirm arrival.
  • Tionisla Orbital Graveyard in game after 2.2
  • "Karma System" possible in future for Hostile Player Commanders ganking newbies.
  • Engineer Rebalance before 2.1. More drops. Easier to find. "We made it too harsh"
  • More ship kits are definitely coming. "Ask the marketing people"
  • Multicrew for multiplayer. NPC crew hires not on the cards.
  • Asteroid Bases? Not anytime soon.
  • Improve the base game damnit! All stations look the same. Same advertisers! Same Yellow trucks! "GamesCom"
  • Crossplatform multiplayer? Not anytime soon.
  • Jumpgates to get to Jaques? No.
  • Beluga Liner for 2.2 "Wait and see"
  • Improved Plot Routing - More to say later.
  • Instancing Issues? Working on it. Please give us reports. Please give us network logs for all players.
  • Ship Naming? "Highly desirable feature"
  • Formadine Rift? "Big galaxy and we want to fill it with interesting things"
  • HTC Vive Updates? "On the list"
  • PP Faction Decals? Speak to Zac. For DG guys. Nothing to say about existing PP powers
  • We will take a gun-ports closed attitude to whatever aliens that may come (ala the Myrmidons). Will it have an effect? "Depends. What can you do against a superpower without guns?"
  • CG God Intervention? "Yes. The effect of a few players was disproportionate to the efforts of thousands. We will be changing lockdown thresholds"
  • FDEV advised they won't be doing this again going forward. IE Founders' current situation
  • Formadine Rift? Can it be found? "Talk to Drew"
  • Guildtags? "Highly desireable"
  • BGS Faction Retreat Destroying BGS Factions? "Yes, but I won't preempt any possible future announcements, but factions can never retreat from their home systems"
  • Killing Commanders not effecting Combat Rank? "Uh, that sounds like a bug"
  • Can intelligent life be found. "All life findable with a few notable exceptions is ground based... will be expanded on in future"
  • Hey dawg, remember that art book kickstarter goal? "Uh, we're onto it"
  • Better VR Support in Galaxy Map? "Nothing to say yet"
  • Can I turn slaves into sausages "Probably not"
  • What happened to the space cats from Elite "Wiped or not sentient in the first place - whichever answer you prefer"
  • Rise of the Alliance? MB: "I think they're a bit shady honestly"
  • !!THARGOID ALLIANCE INFILTRATION CONFIRMED!!
  • Passive Resource Collection? Passive Mine Rigs? "No plans"
  • Community Content? Ship Builder? Mission Builder? No.
  • Big Ships docking at Outposts? Extra large ships with Stations? "We can do it. We can have large ship docking at Outposts now. It's a intended design drawback"
  • Remote Summon Ships "No Comment at this stage"
