    Arrow A list of threads on common topics

    Quite often questions and comments have been made before, have a look here before starting a new thread.

    The first two posts of this thread have links to other threads that you may find useful to follow direct, or copy and paste in response to new questions.

    This post deals with common topics of discussion. Some of which can be contentious. The next post down is a series of links to guides and tips, also in threads.

    The third post is a useful index to the Design Discussion Archive - please look there first for all your gameplay mechanic related queries.

    As ever, if you find a helpful thread or want something added, pop it on the thread below and I’ll get it moved up here for all to see.

    List of Design Discussions


    The Design Discussion Archive is a treasure trove of information about Elite: Dangerous, but it can be hard to find the proposals you're looking for. Forger's beautiful e-book Elite Dangerous.the Beginning. Early Game Designs. 2014 is a great introduction, and here's a more complete reference:

    As you can see, the archived threads have been tagged so you can find your way around - go to the bottom of any DDA thread and click the tag to see other threads on the same topic. If you haven't noticed the tag list before, take a look at the box titled "Tags" at the bottom of this thread.

    This post was a collaboration amongst several DDF members (Zplintz came up with the initial idea and several others in the DDF talked it over) - thanks also Yaffle for letting us hijack his lovely thread and T.j for weaving his modly magic

    Yaffle, you missed out ship specs, costs and performance...

    A link to somewhere that describes how to submit a tcket and get a hardware survey to paste into a ticket would be helpful.

    Good idea.

    How about a section on basic tactics and in-game guides like how to tell which side the docking entrance is upon approach, etc.

    I'll search for some I have read and post them here soon.

    Nice thread

    Is there a thread on common suggestions that have been made to FD about tweaks or features that could be incorporated in the game? I know what happened in the alpha should stay in the alpha, but I thought it might save some bandwidth.
