Update #25 - Trading Dev Diary and £1 million Mark Passed
great news yesterday, we passed the £1 million mark which is excellent. A huge thank you to everyone who has pledged and supported Elite: Dangerous so far. Our current pledge total is now over £1,021,000, so we now have £229,000 left to raise to reach the base goal.
We also have 18,542 backers, again the increase is great. Many of you have already helped spread the word, we need you to continue doing so. Reach out to anybody who might be interested and let them know. We have 7 days left, but if we can gain another 1,000 supporters each pledging £30 (or more) then we'd be past out base goal.
In today's update we have David's latest dev diary in which he discusses some of the new trading features:
We've also added a new pledge upgrade, you can now get concept art prints for £20 (signed ones are still available for £35). While the range of concept art to select from hasn't been decided yet, we have confirmed that a star chart for the game, and ship recognition guide will be available.
Further good news on the book front - John Harper's "And here the wheel" has achieved its funding. Good work everyone!
Today's featured book project is "Elite Anthology: Tales from the Frontier" by Chris Booker. He is currently over half way to reaching his target. Let's see if we can get it funded today. Please pledge your support here:
So once again, thank you everyone for your support. Let's do what we can to gather more supporters to the fold.
I'll be back tomorrow with another update.
