Frontier is currently working on a patch to resolve a myriad of known issues in Elite: Dangerous.

The issues involve overlapping hotspots commodity distribution, specifically the impact of a patch which reduced the effects of multiple overlapping hotspots. The team is currently looking at data to best determine how to attack this.

Tritium rarity has also seen a negative impact. The team states that any impact to make this rarer was not their intent. Additionally, the limited purchasing on fleet carriers, now limited to a max of two billion credits, was omitted from the previous patch notes

Also, console players were addressed,

“A small update will take place tomorrow [June 21] around midday for Xbox and Playstation users. This update won't contain any noticeable changes, but lays the groundwork for future bug fixes.”
