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.
