What’s new in Elite Dangerous update 1.56?

Fleet Carriers

  • A bug preventing transactions in a Fleet Carrier’s market when the transaction amount was greater than the Fleet Carrier’s remaining unreserved credits was fixed.
  • Elite Dangerous 1.46 fixed an issue which occurred when setting the price of a commodity on a Fleet Carrier to greater than 1 million credits.
  • Salvage commodities normally limited to search & rescue contacts, like Black Boxes or Personal Effects should now work correctly at Fleet Carriers in the open and black markets.
  • An issue which lead to some Fleet Carriers having a service only partially installed was fixed. Affected carriers have now had any of these services properly installed, but with some small side effects (see Known Issues for details).


  • Elite Dangerous update 1.46 fixed an issue which allowed launching a fighter to restore sub-surface deposits on asteroids.
  • A bug with material distribution in overlapping hotspots was fixed and hotspost themselves we rebalanced. Now, the effect that each hotspot has on the base rarity of a commodity has been doubled. To counter this, hotspots of the same type which overlap will be less effective. The aim of thsese changes is to reduce the massive impact of overlapping hotspots while still ensuring they provide a higher yield than non-overlapping hotspots.


  • A bug which affected the way hair options were selected for dark skinned characters was fixed.

Early Game Experience
