Durahcell 3.0 has launched, new site after 13 years

It took quite some time, but finally it’s here.

Welcome to Durahcell 3.0

Due to some unfortunate mishaps, the old site got deleted and I never had enough time to wrap my head around WP.

Hopefully though, this site will be around even longer than the second iteration, which lasted about 12 years.

On this site I will publish small blog-posts and updates about my activities and try to keep you up to date on the releases of videos.



Elite: Dangerous- Hunting with the pack!

Wings in Elite: Dangerous

My ongoing fascination with Elite: Dangerous is an endless stream of beautiful footage, only waiting for me to find the time for new videos.

Now if only I had the time to record AND cut all these videos.

Newly implemented feature

With the last major update, a new version of their cooperative play mechanic- called “Wings”- was introduced.

In theory you are able to build a team of four players who can see their respective locations and status in the cockpit, as well as use integrated text- and voice-chat to communicate.

Unfortunately this feature only really works well if all players are in the same system and server-instance, otherwise the wing-invitations are lost in the endless spaces between players.

Volatile, yet beautiful

The new wing-feature of Elite: Dangerous may not be perfect yet, but when it works, the results are beautiful.

I tried to capture this and the feeling you get by it in the above video. Be warned- I fly with a group of german friends, so comms-chatter is in german.

Elite: Dangerous is available through https://www.elitedangerous.com or http://store.steampowered.com/app/359320/
