    Original alpha/beta backer returning to play - your top 10 tips

    I'm an original backer of the game, avid Elite II player from the 90s and played in the pre-release of this game. Bought the Oculus rift, full stick/throttle set up, etc etc. Played cca. 30-40 hours and then stopped. Mixture of work, lack of time and frustration with early game glitches/lack...

    My carrier's crew is just dumb

    o7 Commanders! I have some concerns about my fleet carrier, here are they: My crew is dumb and cannot transfer tritium from the carrier's storage to the fuel tank. I need to use my cargo ship as a "middleman"... My crew is still dumb and cannot plot more than one jump... I have to do that...

    Hotspot reinitialisation is bad and should not happen. There are good alternatives.

    The coming fleet carriers have potential to be a great addition to Elite. But there is a major issue that seems a bit overlooked or too easily accepted while (hotly) debating prices and other numbers: The hotspot reininitialisation. In the current beta ring hotspots were reinitialised. This...

    A two tier Capital Class ship system.

    First, let me say I am a PS4 player with no access to the beta and therefore, the data provided here is what I have relied on from YouTubers who have had access to the beta. Let us look at the perceived issues from the Elite Dangerous community so far: The initial purchase price of a fleet...

    Using the carrier for outlaw and pirate activities

    I was really looking forward to use my carrier as a mobile pirate/outlaw home. Unfortunately it's not really useful for this purpose or I'm doing it wrong. Things I learned from or discovered in the beta: 1. You can not use stolen Tritium as carrier fuel. Which self-respecting outlaw buys it's...

    It's functionally impossible to offer relevant suggestions with so little official information and insight.

    I have no idea what to suggest because I have no idea what the developers' design philosophy is. Are they meant to be personal fleet carriers? Then there's a few things wrong (upkeep's too massive for solo ownership; if they were meant to be fleet carriers then why is a market standard instead...

    NPC carrier commodity trade for passive income, if this isn't the future, what is? (player retention and priming for the 2020 update)

    When I saw in the beta that NPCs land on your fleet carrier I was very excited. Then I heard on Lave Radio that there was not intention to have NPCs interact with the commodities market and other services. Of course that would be highly profitable because we would be able to set orders for NPCs...

Reset to 30 minutes. This makes it comparable...

    Alpha Icon in Animal Tab with Habitat UI

    New Mining stuff in Colonia

    Does anyone know where in Colonia we will be able to get the new mining equipment from? If it's not available at launch, can we have a colonia CG to quickly manually add the abrasion blasters etc?

    New mining system makes "Mining Fighter" an even better idea

    The new mining mechanics in the beta, while highly profitable, especially with the new minerals that are only found inside asteroids, require a bunch of different skills. Piloting, aim, speed, time management, rough calculation... there's a bunch of it. However, there are two things that are...

    Important QOL suggestion for exploration (3.3BETA)
