Updated: 14th May @ 11:49am (UTC)

Today, the 14th May 2019, Frontier have released a second patch for the April update. Details can be found below, on the official site here and in the patch notes section of this website once confirmed. This post will be amended to reflect any further changes.


Greetings Commanders,

We’re aiming to roll-out a patch for all platforms on Tuesday 14 May at 10:00 AM (UTC) to implement a couple of bug fixes and address issues with the FSS (crashing when using the FSS, as well as graphical display and camera re-positioning issues).

We will update this thread with final times/dates as well as patch notes at the start of next week.

Thank you for your understanding. Please find the full patch notes below:

  • Stopped allowing players to attempt to buy more goods from a market than it can actually supply
  • Increased the acceleration when choosing the quantity of commodity when buying or selling
  • The sell pop up now defaults to max amount of the chosen commodity you’re carrying
  • If the player is currently docked at the station that is also set as the saved comparison market, the comparison column and its header will update and use the galactic average prices to calculate the profits
  • If the player doesn’t have Horizons, planetary surface markets are not considered when looking for best prices in the ‘also consumed by’ / ‘produced by’ lists
