    Ship naming and Name Plates – how it will work

    Hi everyone,

    There’s been a number of questions from Commanders regarding ship naming and how ship name plates will work so we wanted to give you a little more information about how these features will work when they’re released.

    In-game ship naming

    When you have named your ship in-game, your ship name will appear in multicrew grouping and in your HUD. In addition to this, in beta 5, when other people scan you, or target you in space they will be able to see your ship name in their UI. This feature will be available for all players of Elite Dangerous (both base game and Horizons players) including Xbox One, upcoming PS4 release and PC Commanders.

    Cosmetic Ship Name Plates

    The ship name plates will offer an added layer of cosmetic personalisation for Commanders wanting to wear their name with pride, much like paint jobs and other cosmetics currently available in the store.

    Name plates will be made available in themed packs. These packs will contain three designs, each of which will be available in three colours: black, white, and grey. This makes a total of 9 nameplates per pack. After purchase, each pack will be available for use across all of your ships (Ship launched fighters and SRVs don’t have name plates) and each pack of 9 variant plates will be coming into store at just £2/€2.5/$3. This means that purchasing one pack of name plates will allow you to use that style across all of your current and future ships, at the same time and rename each individual ship as many times as you like. We believe this flexibility offers Commanders great value and is a great way to help support the continued development of Elite Dangerous.

    Thanks!

    Pitchforks down everyone - this sounds OK to me. Thanks for clarifying Ed before it turned into a shipstorm! (oh - too late - nevermind).

    Is this the product management equivalent of doing the Loop Of Shame?

    Thanks for clarifying this, I suspect a lot of us are very relieved.

    Thanks for the clarification. I can get behind this.

    Works good

    How about ship registration? Where this field will be visible? We would like to use it as a clantag.

    And always forgotten macOS users?
    Horizons for macOS Sierra. Possible or not?
