    3rd ever Thargoid "Octagoid" Kill - 8 thargoid interceptors at once

    Ladies and gentlemen, after many weeks of trying, I have managed to get four extra thargoid interceptors to join a four goid instance to create an 8 goid "octagoid" instance. :) So so many jumps... as Hyperdiction in only around a 20 percent chance so many wrong instances... as getting one of...

    Overhaul combat by bringing missiles into the fold.

    Combat in elite has gotten a bit stale and easy. Instead of changing anything about the AI or the jitter or the thermals or whatnot, we need to look at missiles. Right now missiles are kind of pointless. We need to up their capacity and their damage. We also need to give players a...

    Elite Mining Simulator

    Firstly I do love this game, however I have become very disillusioned with what currently is on offer. After playing all of the previous incarnations across nearly every platform and backing the original kickstarter it has become yet another general building simulator, similar in many ways...

    Balancing PvE combat payouts for both new and Elite players

    To the Dev Team, I have played Elite for a long time now, and something I hear a lot from other players is that they would love to be able to earn money doing all the activities the game has to offer. Currently, the fastest way to earn in this game is by mining, and the one of the slowest ways...

    Heatsink ammo reserves: the ultimate cause of mankind’s defeat by the Thargoids(?)

    I tried to make the title not-completely-boring. Anyway, could y’all sneak a quick bump to heatsink ammo reserves into your next patch? Or...the one after next, if the next one is already planned out? For one thing, it’s irritating how (after engineering) heatsinks come in packages of 4, but...

    Big Three (Conda, Cutter, Corvette) combat builds

    Hey guy. I recently got back into Elite Dangerous and started grinding ranks with the empire and Federation to get the Cutter and the Corvette. I currently already have the Conda and I use it for mining (low tmep diamonds ftw). As I'm getting closer and closer to buying the Cutter and Corvette...

    Wading into combat!

    While I've done combat before, I'm now getting pretty into it. Long story short, I went on a big expedition to colonia in my on my jump build anaconda, and when I got there, I'd figure I'd stick around and see what there is to do. I had my Krait MKII shipped out there to do some bounty hunting...

    AI Pilot update

    Trying to fight thargoids alone .... got idea about AI pilot. Currently AI is classic for any MMO game - attack/assist/stop/follow. Well, it's a bit old already. Many fights require positioning/moving etc. So, my idea to add "combat plan". Where you can draw basic moves, for example, fly circle...

    What was wrong with fire groups?

    Evening all... o7 I'm sorry if this comes across as a bit of a rant, but I've not been playing for a little while (give or take a year and a bit)...

    Ok, we have the process now of killing an opponent, be it another player or computer opponent. But if we use our skills and risk a little to knock out say...you opponents engins...or a combination of FSD and weapons... why not allow them to yield and pay a ransom that is greater than their...

    Hi, myself and a friend have both been experiencing the game crashing back to desktop on the PS4. It seems to happen during combat more than at any other time, and it’s been doing it consistently since the most recent update. Anyone else’s having this issue? Fdev aware of it?
