The discovery was significant, as no cheese had previously been found in Ancient Egypt before, and could be the oldest cheese residue on earth. The material analyzed is probably the most ancient archaeological solid residue of cheese ever found to date. We know it was made mostly from sheep’s and goat’s milk. The tomb is located at the Saqqara necropolis near Cairo. https://time.com/5371503/ancient-egypt-tomb-old-cheese/ Movie anniversaries: 10 years - The Amazing Spiderman 15 years - Transformers 20 years - Men Black 2 25 years - Men in Black, Contact 30 years - A League of Their Own 35 years - Adventures in Babysitting 37 years - Back to the Future 40 years - Tron If you like the show please rate and review on your podcast app, which helps people find the show.

Discussion: I’d love some community testing and feedback I’ve found that flying to settlements is the place where performance is the worst of anywhere in the game.  But if I murder all the NPCs and then take off performance is dramatically better. When I first booted up after the update I got the bug where all the NPC vendors were missing from a concourse; and performance was way better than normal. This follows with previous observations that NPC AI can stack up within an instance causing big performance hits on EDH/EDO in space and at settlements/concourses. In these cases I (and others) observe that the CPU/GPU is not even close to being fully utilized. My working theory is that the game engine is slowing down how quickly it sends frames to the processors to draw, not the processors hitting their power limit.  This might only be apparent on very fast hardware. Please capture screen shots of your performance meter before and after murdering everyone at a settlement and share them in our hardware channel!

And check out the merch store!  https://discord.io/LooseScrews Headlines for this episode:   Megaship missing Jupiter Division fights for its future again Odyssey: Major patch 2 and a 2.1 patch Odyssey: outfitting UI feedback requested The Odyssey road map to fixing Odyssey is announced to be on the map to be planned for release on or by tomorrow (Friday) Squad Update:  (1) Worlds Collide - Expanded from Ross 310 into Howard...currently fighting invasion war there. (2) Thanks to a Little Help from our Friends - Won the war in V640 Cassiopeia with help from the neighbors (3) If You'll Be My Bodyguard - returning the favor by helping BoTM in Beldarkri. BGS issues: (1) Current war/asset transfer bug. Factions not properly gaining/losing influence when wars conclude, assets not won/lost, system control not transferring. (https://issues.frontierstore.net/issue-detail/35912)  Current in "Acknowledged" status on FDev issue tracker.  Need any examples from the community, and most importantly, upvotes! (2) BGS deaths of Anarchy factions.  Odyssey changes removed the ability for Anarchy factions to earn bounties in systems they control AND increased 10-fold the number of available missions that target anarchy factions...basically making them the bad guy for the whole galaxy.  Anarchy factions are in full retreat across most of the galaxy...a nearby anarchy PMF with 26 systems is now in 5 wars and losing influence in 19 systems, (https://issues.frontierstore.net/issue-detail/35479). Also Acknowledged and needing upvotes. Galnet Recap: https://community.elitedangerous.com/ New combat CG today involving Jupiter Division and Silver Legal Group in the Ts’ao Tach system.

When a war is resolved, all battle sites will return to being standard settlements under the control of the faction that won the most Conflict Zones at that particular battle site during the War. Odyssey adds new actions which the player can carryout that have a knock on effect to the Security and Economy of a given Faction as well has increasing and decreasing the chance of certain states from occurring. New Triggers include: Killing AI Interacting with Settlements in different ways Selling different Goods to Bartenders Selling different Data Bartenders Logging Organics with Vista Genomics Completing Odyssey Missions “The dev Odyssey BGS update suggests that wars are triggered traditionally with crossing influence but each triggered war results in a traditional BGS war plus as many separate mini wars as the sum Odyssey settlement count of the affected factions.” Discussion: odyssey balancing with on foot missions, will/can the reward from a mission be worthwhile for the time investment.

Scopes, speed, mag size, suppressors, autoloader Dr. Kay Ross, Principal Render Programmer, Talks about what they’ve seen as they watch people play Optimization: particularly occlusion wasn’t happening.

Aisling Duval heals her cousin Hadrian with vitadyne nanomeds. And some federal systems are struggling to cope with all the political refugees. The empire repeals new evidence which they say shows the NMLA terrorists had federal help, and may have a second bomb lab is federal space. The Empire’s counter-terrorism operation in the LTT 1935 system has triggered armed resistance from the Federation. The feds don’t take this lightly and called in pilots federation support… A CG in LTT 1935! Participants will gain military rank for the superpower they side with, based on the percentile they end the CG in; and in the case of a successful CG, the top 10 CMDRs will be elevated to the highest rank for that superpower.

Write up on Massively OP and Reddit. https://massivelyop.com/2020/10/27/the-gamer-who-circumnavigated-the-galaxy-in-a-ship-of-elite-dangerous-own-making/ The Horizons fold down has happened, and accounts who previously owned horizons now have a new paintjob for every ship, fighter, and srv. (Apparently the paint not working on PS4?) Cqc seems to be broken, too. And to top it off, the game is on steam sale for 75% off until November 2.  Squad Update:  All is quiet on the front, or quiet before the storm? In Game News: https://community.elitedangerous.com/ The Federation congress has voted to grant sanctuary to the Marlinist immigrants. The next day Imperator Hadrian Augustus Duval was wounded in an assassination attempt. NMLA claims responsability, It happened inside the headquarters of Nova Imperium, which firmly stands against NMLA in their statement. Hadrian Duval is the illegitimate grandson of Emperor Hengist. His father, the late Commander Hector Jansen, was the result of a secret liaison with a household slave. Although disowned by the Imperial Family, Hadrian claims to be a rightful heir to the throne. Interesting they are hitting currently not-in-power Duvals, eh?  Curious... Both CGs have completed and for the first time in several weeks we don’t have a new one directly replacing it. The delivery CG finished in Tier 3, providing supplies to sustain the Marlinist populations in the LTT 3607, Charunder and Ennead systems until federal support comes in. The combat CG to protect the delivery ships also finished just shy of tier 4. Collect rewards way out at Fox Enterprise in LFT 625. Halloween event! Firstly, there’s new livery stuffs. Buy them and put them on your ship if you want to be sufficiently spooooooky! A few days ago some coded messages began to trickle out on twitter. These turn out to contain messages encoded in binary, but it takes days for all the pictures to come out and we get the full message.   https://www.reddit.com/r/EliteDangerous/comments/jjvtvv/pieces_19/ Shortly thereafter we get an audio transmission. ttps://mobile.twitter.com/elitedangerous/status/1321500318434238465 And then a scripted Halloween special video from the CMs. (Great job, guys) https://youtu.be/52qsTzsvouY And now for those who aren’t going out on their own to find it, on to the rest of what’s been found! https://www.reddit.com/r/EliteDangerous/comments/jkc8pw/spoilers_summary_of_logs_and_lore_from_coalsack/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share
