Distant Worlds II – Journey’s End

It’s the end of the road for me. I didn’t make it any further than Pru Aescs NC-M d7-192. It’s still my wish to visit Beagle Point, but not now.

The expedition made it to Beagle Point without me, and most other commanders are already back home. There’s no point in me trying to continue this quest at the present time. I can get a proper shipyard to fix this ship back at Flade Enterprise.


Breaking out of game character, the reason for my lack of play-time on Elite has been a combination of real-life factors, and the change of my primary operating system from Windows to Linux – it’s got to the point where Elite: Dangerous is the only thing I used Windows for.

With the release of Valve’s Proton 4.2, I’ve now successfully managed to get E:D running on Linux, so jumping in-game for a bit of play-time doesn’t feel so disruptive to everything else. In addition, EDDiscovery also (sort-of) works under Mono, though you can’t edit your CMDR settings in EDDiscovery. I found that I could open the EDDUser databse file with DataGrip and set the settings directly in the file though.

If you’re interested, this is the document I followed to get E:D working on Proton.
