Elite Dangerous: Odyssey will have flora for players to discover, then take that data and trade it later on for rewards at star ports. Elite Dangerous: Odyssey was announced back in June. Most recently Elite Dangerous has added fleet carriers, but the latest update is still being worked on due to several bugs.
