    Fleet carrier improvements

    Here are some improvements for Fleet Carriers: 1)Having the ability to set multiple consecutive jumps based on Tritium reserves. 2) Tritium could also be sold in Cologne, allowing explorers to easily supply Tritium even away from the bubble 3) The transfer of Tritium from the hold to the tank...

    [Suggestion] Fabrications Carrier Module

    The Fabrications module would house equipment necessary for maintaining life support and other necessary equipment. It's in-game purpose would be to convert the upkeep cost of the carrier into demand for Commodities. For simplicity I'd set the list of commodities and the associated demand...

    Fleet Carrier Feedback and Issues (Odyssey Edition)

    Hey folks, I just wanted to sit down and give some thoughts, feedback and criticism on the current state of Fleet Carriers in Elite: Dangerous Odyssey. I run a squadron by the name of Whitetip Operation, we're about 200+ members strong in-game, have several star systems under our control and...

    Carrier Jump Delayed

    Hello, CMDRs. Not sure how many of you may have experienced this interesting situation where a Carrier aborts a jump with an in-role failure. After this failure, there was about a 5min period during which I was unable to input any directions, and it just marked it as failed. Afterwards, a fresh...

    Carrier needs a social space

    Remember all those threads demanding an ability for people to go to the FC's bridge, socialize and watch as the carrier jumps. Yeah, that would be nice, but let's start with essentials. The social space, the place to get out of your ship and into your teammate's. Carriers tend to be home bases...

    ARX Purchasable Hub/Bridge Interiors for Fleet Carriers

    Well, I know. Maybe carriers won't have on-foot places, but maybe they do in the future. Anyway, this could be a nice thing to have, if we could get a default interior, then have the option to change it to have other styles. Connection to the carrier's windows and the bounding box for the hub...

    Please allow multiple players in a squadron to share the price of 1 carrier and share it's upkeep

    I play in a small squadron run by me and my friends, we'd love to have a carrier that we can share between all of us instead of having 1 player handle the grind to buy it and upkeep it, please think about it.

    Big Ships in which one could board a hunter type eagle or imperial mail

    These ships would have a long jump capacity. It could be returned from our ship or our SRV, as our ship may already be since the SRV. This ship would be there for the RP is could be a small base for the player. It would differ from the Freighters because we could only board one (or two maximum...

    Will pay for Social Area

    I will give you money for a social area on my carrier. It makes sense that we can't have ship interiors with Oddesy at launch. Thats a lot of space to model and not much content to go with it. Carriers are different. They are natural activity hubs with squadrons. They have a built in delay...

    Low Cost Fleet Carrier Alternative

    Having a fleet carrier is almost essential to progressing and having fun in game, as a Fleet Carrier it is has the potential to be better than Any Space Station aside from offering missions. I think a lower cost more affordable version should be available that would basically be smaller, have...

    Two alternative Carrier concepts: "Pocket Carrier" and "Light Carrier"

    I currently have two Fleet Carriers, and I'm now quite happy with how they work (so this isn't one of those "I can't afford a Fleet Carrier" threads, or a "Carriers suck" thread). But I appreciate that there are still players who either can't afford a Fleet Carrier or don't require one, but...

    General Carrier Deck view

    hi like this idea, we should have a similar but different view of the carrier jump. the jump drive technology is different so fdev could make up another view from the inside of the jump. this is a great example of a view in normal space, then jump and existing the jump, i found it on...

    Allow option for pilots to transfer OFF a carrier sitting in desolate space.

    If a carrier, with no plans to decommission, parks in a desolate area for an indefinite time, where it is impossible for a pilot to jump out of, those pilots essentially held captive by the carrier captain. There needs to be an option for pilots to be able to transfer off a carrier to nearest base.

    Fleet Carrier Management Spreadsheet, Part 1

    Fleet Carrier - Holding Compound

    Set up a system with an outpost for admin and Park carriers showing no activity here ( effectively take them out and put them in storage ). It would be an easy thing for ED to monitor player access to the game and use of the carrier. If not log its jumps and specify that it must jump at least...

    NPC refuelling of Carriers

    From what we know so far, it seems that Carriers will require 1 ton of fuel per lightyear jumped (unless shorter jumps are more fuel-efficient, as with the FSD), have a 1,000t fuel tank, and have up to 25,000t of cargo storage (minus what is used up by installing upgrades, so only a barebones...

    A comparison of ship-transfer times and Carrier travel

    According to lore, ship transfer (and module transfer) takes place via unseen megaships. It could be argued that we are now being given access to the megaships we've been using all along. So let's do some comparisons. Ship transfer time is 6ly per minute (over long distances: a 0ly in-system...

Game really never needed "bugs" aka Thargoids...

    Fleet Carrier Prices

    Any guesses on what we could be expecting for these monsters? I’m not sure if their will be an ability to upgrade them after the fact of purchasing, but that would change the price point drastically imo. A Conda alone is 143 Million, which nowadays is not much. An A rated conda you could be...

    Are you prepared to wait 1hr 23min for that 500ly jump?

    According to lore, ship transfer happens via megaship. And ship transfer speed is 6ly/min (over long distances: as transfer between stations within a system isn't instant, the formula might be "6ly/min plus a bit"). This gives us the theoretical speed of a megaship (though I'm aware of the...

    Carriers BGS

    Ship Concept - Carrier

    What if........

    When the fleet carrier drops we can work towards the introduction of space legs but only for the carrier......we could have them just to navigate the ship from hanger to other areas like mission room or the brige.
