    Economy and Security status sliding scales

    Hello Cmdrs I've been searching and found not much on the sliding scales for economy and security. For example: For the faction 'The Dark Wheel' the Economy marker in on the 'Investment' part of the scale and the security marker is just about on the none part of the scale. However, For the...

    PSA: Current C&P does not discourage PVP; It only prevents strike missions on controlling factions.

    PSA: Current C&P does not discourage PVP; It only prevents strike missions on controlling factions. Current C&P mechanics cause any strike missions with Authority vessels nearby to be treated as equal to or greater than player ships. Killing authority ships results in an increase of notoriety...

    Making Illegal Activities more Fun and Viable

    The biggest impediment to illegal activites are:- 1. Low payouts that are not at all commensurate to the risks taken 2. Overzealous, overcomplicated and oversensitive Crime and Punishment system that actively discourages any sort of infraction whether major or minor (and therefore makes illegal...

    Space dust around facilities with poor financials

    ...and also debris after military actions happened in the system should be left for a while. It seems natural that those space stations that can't afford cleaning will pollute everything around. Also cannons can be activated from time to time to destroy this dust when it comes too close to the...

    I think I'd rather deal with griefers...

    Having had time to fully experience C&P from both sides of the law, I think I'd rather go back to the pre-3.0 system, even if that means dealing with more griefers. That's why we have this convoluted system, right? I want to clarify a couple of things. The vast majority of my "illegal"...

    C & P: Hunting down CMDRs with high notoriety

    I know crime and punishment is being tweaked further, but I was thinking back to when i used to play a text-based MUD in the 90s that allowed unlimited PVP and stuck to roleplay as much as possible, and the ways we could self-police other players causing trouble. In that game (also a huge open...

    Bounty threshold

    Hi, in these days I'm playing as a bounty hunter. It happened, 3 or 4 times, to hit "not wanted" ships by mistake and to gain a bounty. A clearly low bounty of 200 cr. At this point I became wanted and I had to fly to the nearest Interstellar Factor to have my bounty cleared. But to do that I...

    Crime and punishment stole my ship

    Gaind a small fine and a bounty on a planetary scan mission. Returned to current CG station and changed ships for some bounty hunting. Now my Asp X is locked out says (Legal Issues). I have been to interstellar factors and paid all fines and bounties and I still can’t get my Asp back. I would go...

    We need Music in space

    It would be cool if there were different radio stations offering everything from reggae to heavy metal or something like an "MP3 player" where you can upload your own music. And it would also be cool if there were really big ships where 10 people could work on it.

    I think ed is now headed in the right direction.

    Alright let me first start of by saying that I know the gameplay can become tedious due to the fact that it feels like you are doing the same thing over and over. But at the same time the newest update really did seem to address an issue in the game in a very good way and that is crime and...

    C&P example structure.

    Fines should be able to add up to a bounty. For example. 10,000 in fines= bounty Tier 1 Murder= Bounty no matter what. The bounty should start at 10,000 cr and go up from there. Because you killed someone. FSD interdiction of a clean ship= Bounty. This is because the victim needs to be able to...

    The Problem with Notoriety (and how to make it work)

    The idea behind notoriety, to allow for player killing to have tangible consequences, is good. Unfortunately, the actual effect of this system is more often than not, less than desirable. The problem with notoriety comes from the fact that the actual system for detecting bounties in the game is...

    search and rescue finished?

    so while i was out and about i happened across a black box and on a whim i picked i up. i then later took it to a station with the intent of turning it into the search and rescue agent, but they say their task is complete. i didn't think it was possible for their task to be complete. i had...

    Improving the Crime and Punishment system

    I believe that a lot of the attendant frustration with the new Crime and Punishment system arises because of the oversensitive nature of the system. This creates a situation where the system, while having some impact on PvP, has a large unintended and frustrating impact on innocent activities...

    A little unsure what to do now...

    All right, so I don't play Elite too often, I kind of just play in spurts here and there, really makes the game feel new again each time I play, and I haven't really played much since before the release of Beyond. So I'll begin the story of how the new crime and punishment system has either got...

    Notoriety in 3.0

    So here it is. 3.0 has dropped and I must say, there are quite a lot of things I love about the latest iteration. Material limits for one are amazing. Now I feel motivated and even a bit vindicated in how much I enjoy what practically amounts to looking for shiny rocks. Especially prospecting...

    3.0 + Powerplay Undermining = No Good

    The new Crime and Punishment system is not tuned correctly for Powerplay undermining and has made this aspect of the game uninviting/not fun and appears to punish this type of play. - Gain bounty when you destroy legitimate opposing faction NPC – Agree - Gain Notoriety value when...

    Search & Rescue dither dither dither

    Has anyone found the search and Rescue worth your time... I feel it's a wasted element to the game at the moment, and should be taken in another direction, by changing its core mechanic, as i see it at the moment it's not worth the bother, As much of it is like selling goods just in commodity...

    Search and Rescue Missing People

    Just thought it would be cool to have a missing persons post in search and rescue, people who have been lost around the galaxy i.e CEO David Braben last seen in the Lave system, reward for finding him… 10cr (:P). and this would be a bonus added to the occupied escape pod reward. And these could...
