    General BGS & ODISSEY

    Dear Frontiers, with the release of Odysseus, all military conflicts in BGS broke down. During the time that I pass the 4 middle zones in Horizon, the Odyssey player calmly passes 10 and gets an unfair advantage. It has become senseless to study BGS if you are not playing on a computer, or you...

    Background Simulation - Raising Awareness

    One of the coolest features in Elite Dangerous is the Background Simulation and how everyone can play a small part on changing galaxy dynamics. But also seems one thing that is getting least attention from FDev. I would like to start this thread to show FDev that this is one thing that really...

    BGS Suggestion - Balancing between Large & Small Factions

    As a member of a small player minor faction, we feel overwhelmed by larger factions within our sector of the bubble. What effect would it have to introduce a minor persistent negative influence per tick on minor factions not native to the system? This could scale based on distance from the...

    Request: Change Alioth Permit Requirement

    Why? Alioth is the Alliance capital system, and like the Empire's Achenar and the Federation's Sol, it requires a permit to enter it. Unlike Achenar and Sol, however, Alioth's permit can only be obtained by completing missions for a faction present in Alioth. The Current Status The preferred...

    How to make Elite a mile deep as well as wide

    The problem with Elite Dangerous is obviously that player agency is very slim. Your purpose for being in Elite is to 'get better stuff', 'get more ships', 'grind some personal stats'. That entirely misses the core premise of the game. David should know this. However the basic building blocks of...

    Need help with an experiment!

    So I was farming for Occupied Escape Pods for hours, despite the numerous shield-less transport ships, I just couldn't find any. What I did find was a bounty for 128M Cr. This lead me to notice that as I raised my bounty, the security state of the system I was farming in was also raised. My...

    BGS: Odyssey content extremely harsh for Anarchy factions + Owning settlements is purely a handicap.

    First thing: due to the structure of Odyssey missions, settlement activities and random events anarchy factions are being hit unfairly hard. Most scenarios seem to spawn local anarchy groups as the antagonists in pretty much every conflict. Anarchy factions, controlling or otherwise, are...

    An in-game stock market for commanders to invest in.

    Just an idea that occurred to me while making a "stonks" joke in system chat the other day.

It...

    BGS capital distance influence tax
