    Anarchy factions should provide missions under anonymous access...

    This happens to us quite frequently as we are an anarchy player faction and makes our BGS activities tougher than expected... we are flying wanted ships in faction controlled systems and can't have access to our faction missions because at the base we keep getting "we don't deal with... CMDR...

    Elite Dangerous Sandbox Mode

    I was watching CMDR Exigeous video on cheating in Elite Dangerous. I agreed that cheats are fun in single player games but can ruin multiplayer games. That got me thinking, what if Elite Dangerous had a fourth mode where cheaters could do whatever they wanted without impacting BGS or griefing...

    [BGS] Receive an income from controlled systems

    At the moment, a player faction taking control of systems has no real effect in-game, with no real benefit to taking systems over, and no drawback to losing them. If active members of a player faction received a regular income from systems the faction controls, it would add real benefit/risk to...

    The Wanderers are an in game faction that has two main focuses: The BGS system- taking over systems and how that is done is up to the skills and preferences of our pilots, the Wanderers do not discriminate pilot types as long as you don’t harm any other Wanderers unless it’s an organised event...

    Powerplay Does Powerplay actually affect any RP?

    Noob question - does Powerplay actually affect how the galaxy progresses? For example, say the factions supporting Edmund Mahon took the time to ally themselves with the factions of Denton Patreus and they started cooperating in BGS. Would the in-game universe explain it in that Edmund Mahon...

    BGS Influence System Issues

    Hello. Our in game minor faction has been experiencing odd % drops in influence despite our entire squadron completing appropriate missions and following system guidelines. We’re concerned that something might be wrong with our BGS system, but are looking for support either way on this situation.

    Oh what a wonderful world (galaxy)...without famine.

    Dear FDev: I'd like to issue a golf clap for your starry-eyed BGS fiddlers, who've finally created a galaxy without famine and managed to keep it that way for MONTHS! Truly a remarkable achievement. Now, please task one of ye olde underlings with an assignment to clean up that short-sighted...

    Make Pirate Attack awesome!

    The way Pirate Attacks work right now thy are pretty much meaningless. Just a place that has a good price for diamonds with no good explanation and no effect on the players. So i have a suggestion to make these truely mean something and justify the high reward for Void Opals there. This is...

    Carriers BGS

    this is just a suggestion, if / when carriers do appear in game can they influence the BGS in some way. for example, if you carrier appears in a system, can the influence you generate be boosted with an additional + on the missions etc. Idea goes, other factions in the system are worried...

    How to affect civil war, Do special missions count ?

    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...

    Known Issues with the 3.3.02 BGS (orig. AEDC Discord)

    Hey everybody (and any FD staff checking in), We were chatting in our Discord earlier today, and this resulted in a list of bugs with the current BGS as far as we know. This seemed wise to share with all of the BGS community, and may be an easy list for FD to work from, should they come across...

    Influence stays locked during cooldown - bug or feature?

    The update this morning as well as server side updates over last week apparently fixed a lot of the BGS problems. But as the title says observed after the tick this afternoon influence remained locked for my PMF, despite having run +30 worth of influence points from missions (in a low...

    Improve Outfitting Stores

    It seems Outfitting is just RNG. My Home Station Outfitting Store sucks (no I'm not moving). FD should add Outfitting to the BGS or some way to get more hardware in stores. Unless I'm missing something you can't improve your stores no matter what you do. Say increasing the Station Income, or...

    How to make a station sell more stuff? Discussion

    How do you make a station sell a wider variety of stuff? We're located way out on the fringes of the bubble (outside of power play region) and the systems here have terrible stock on modules. How can we use the background simulator to help a station sell more stuff?

    Squadron driven founding and expansion of minor factions.

    BGS Roll back?

    Just a quick question to spark discussion: do you guys think there will be any type of BGS roll back in light of the recent BGS bug? Having all mission rewards go to system owners seems hardly like a fair thing to leave in the game to me, and at risk of sounding entitles I don't want my group's...

    Please, get rid of assetless conflicts!

    I like how the new war system and general BGS is set up now. But as it stands everybody is in conflict with everyone all the time. That just doesn't make much sense. To fix that I would suggest to get rid of conflicts without assets. That way we would probably cut down on conflicts by at least...

    Broken BGS - possible explanation

    FDEV appear to have implemented a mechanism where CMDRs can hand in bounties at any station - i say appear as i do not know if this is a bug or a design 'feature' that they didnt tell us about. And since FDEV continues to refuse to publish the rules/design that govern BGS it will remain...

    Anarchy Faction influence Working differently in 3.3?

    I've noticed an odd behavior in the bgs that I want to see if anyone else has run into. A buddy and I have been concertedly supporting an anarchy faction, and have, in the days since the reset, watched the faction's support swing wildly, and very unpredictably. In short, we have been running a...

    Mild social pressure as a potential solution to hidden BGS manipulation

    Regarding the Fuel Rats home system struggle: I fully understand that FDev have shot down the idea of only having BGS effects earned in 'Open' count, but what if the community took up the torch? What if we spread the idea that working the BGS in Solo/Private Group was 'cowardly' or sleazy, or at...

    BGS - How to make the game more dynamic and drastically improve the simulation of the world

    Ahoy there, i think a lot of the trouble with how the game is presented is homebrewed. The devs have all necessary tools at hand, to correct the most obvious flaws. They have USSes and wing beacons, the ability to spawn NPCs tied to the BGS states and can change the cargo lists of NPCs, while...

    Discussion 3.3 BGS Changes and the Journal File

    With the revealed BGS changes for Beyond 3.3, while they propagate to the journal? If so, I hope FDEV will release the new Journal Manual at the start of the beta so that changes can be made for the parsers everyone is using (and bugs found quickly).

    Faction States

    While the new ability for a faction to be affected by multiple states sounds great. It still seems off. Wouldn't it make more sense for a "famine" or "outbreak" state to affect a whole planet, or station, rather than just a faction? It's like if a new flu epidemic broke out but only labour...

    Modes Idea for game mode resources being non transferable

    The idea is: what happens in a mode stays in a mode. Wanna play single player fine. Wanna play open fine. Wanna play both , fine. But your stuff in one does not exist in the other. This means pvpers can't hide in solo when in their taxi ship to CG, and then switch to open when they feel safe in...

    More Depth to Trading in the BGS

    Introduction So as of now, trading in BGS only affects the controlling faction of the station. If you think about this, you come two one of 2 conclusions: a) The controlling faction gets a monopoly in all industries on a station. b) The controlling faction is in charge of the port and flow of...

Something pays too high to the wrong rank of player, and instead of redesign the mechanics of credit payouts to...

    Massacre missions are almost always ridiculously long and not worth taking

    Massacre missions have FAR too high kill requirements for what they're worth, necessitating a pretty extreme grind of combat zones over several hours which would be FAR better spent in a RES site. This would have been fine if it was still possible to stack massacre missions, except you now have...
