Thread: Alliance Fringe Development Programme - A Community Initiative

  1. #1

    Alliance Fringe Development Programme - A Community Initiative

    The idea for this programme is simple, support Alliance minor factions to gain control of systems and expand towards the edge of colonised space.

    The Alliance has several minor factions to the "north" of Mahon's exploited space but none of these are at the edge of the bubble. This region of space is of no value to powerplay, thus making all Alliance governments suitable candidate for expansion.

    For this idea to work a player or group of players would "adopt" a faction, or multiple factions. The project will be completely open and we'll track the progress of the factions in the region as time passes.

    This is an opportunity for the community to shape the direction and future of the Alliance in a very real way!

    Maybe you'd like something more from Elite Dangerous apart from the accumulation of credits or something smaller than the vastness of powerplay, this could be it.

    If there's enough interest and support for this idea we can begin organising the list of factions to support. If you'd like to participate or have any thoughts or questions about it feel free to comment. This project is currently in the concept phase. It won't work without enough support from the community!

    Note: This project requires manipulation of factions through use of the background simulation. A basic guide can be found in the link below:

    An alternate name for this is the Alliance Frontier Development Programme. I always like a good pun!

    I think this is a very good idea. Unfortunately, I don't think I would have the sort of time it takes--- real life calls too often these days

    I guess you can advance at your own pace and take the time you need. No need to hurry.

    So this is an attempt to organise players and player groups pledged to the Alliance with the goal to flip fringe systems green?

    Yes, that's the basic goal

    I'll try to help as much as I can.

    Had a brief look on the galaxy map, north bubble fringe. Most systems are small independ mining/refinery. Should be very easy to turn with some mining if:
    - alliance factions exists in these systems and own a market (have no system data to 90% of the systems so i dont know)
    - pristine metallic rings can be found in this area (... no sytem data ... dont know)
    In case these conditions are not present we would have to expand alliance factions from below the area first, which would be a hole lot more work and guidance from bgs experts would be very helpful.

    There's no shortage of Alliance factions to work with, however gaining control of a station/outpost will be the first step once expansions are triggered to allow for trade and exploration sales to assist influence gains.
    There are a few pristine metallic rings that we can work with, I'll have to look through my notes to find the locations again

    Quite often the focus will be mission running to trigger a war, we can then focus on conflict zones for combat. I think compromised nav beacons are also reasonably common in the region, hopefully we can expand to some of those systems to open up bounty hunting opportunities too!

    With so many systems to work with there will be opportunities for all types of gameplay. One day you might feel like supporting a faction with mining, another with bounty hunting or maybe mission running.
    We're hoping that the missions update in 2.1 will make things less frustrating and more fun from a background sim perspective too!

    Apparently the Alliance is the only imperialistic faction in this game. Strange.

    You might think of it as empire building.

    We we think of it as a Greening Initiative.

    Good idea, I can assist while waiting for expansions and booms. Not sure there will be enough players to support it however.

    If you have a list of nonalliance generators, post it please, those need to be removed in any case.

    Btw, is it you\aedc who is pushing Varramool?

    This user was unable to follow the forum rules and ended up banned or suspended! :(

    This is a pretty good idea, the areas the alliance are targetting are mostly anarchy outlyers anyway, and if enough of a region is interacted with by the player base then Fdev may attention and begin colony and other CGs which the alliance is sorely missing

    The issue of insufficient player support is likely to be a problem but that's why we're posting here and asking the community if it's something they'd like to participate in

    You've noticed Varramool too, I'm not sure who's pushing that but I've been monitoring it's expansions. 2 systems with pristine metallic rings so far and moving to the fringe.

    Flipping the north fringe green would also be important thing to do in case the rumors are true and we get automated colonisation at some point. Better to flip now so we get a green colonisation instead ending up with a growing number of independ colonised systems.

    I'd certainly be up for something like this, yes.
