The latest Elite: Dangerous newsletter is available, in which Frontier Developments discusses Alpha phase 3.0, a redesign of the Coriolis space station from the original title, and word that distances between celestial bodies will be correctly scaled when possible due to actual astronomical data being. “To give you an idea we’re currently at 116,000 stars from various catalogs and [that] includes pulsars and black holes as well as main sequence stars,” said Frontier. “Exo-planets are the other big import which we’re about to start working on.” Elite: Dangerous launches sometime in 2014.
