    Game crashes to blue screen

    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?

    Dinosaurs General Gameplay Dynamic Combat

    Here's how I think the combat system should have been and still have the gene mod system. Like JPOG dinosaurs can have hit and run combat along with the duels we currently have. Each species still has the base defense, attack, and resilience stats, but they also have a base hit points value like...

    Question for Frontier

    I posted this on Reddit but didn’t get a reply, so thought I would post it here as well: There have been a few highly-requested changes, such as increasing the herbivores’ combat stats so they are closer to the carnivores, or changing allosaurus so it’s not the strongest non-hybrid carnivore...

    How to help newer players understand ship combat better.

    This may not be the best thing but this could be so extremely simple and would not require much coding or having to redo whole sections. The biggest issue for newbies and one of the main roadblocks and a major catalyst for quitting the game is combat. The training difficulty goes from 0 to 100...

    I'm here to complain about punishment for friendly fire

    In the half year I've owned this game, I've received two 200cr bounties, for my NPC fighter firing at a station because its target vessel was moving and because my anaconda got a bounty for one of its lasers slipping and firing at an innocent guy, respectively. This is very annoying since it...

    The problems and solutions to the present boosting system (or why the drag munitions change was a bad solution to an important issue)

    The drag munitions change did do some work to reduce permaboosting, but it went about it the wrong way; by creating a highly specific and limited solution to a systemic issue within the game, i.e. the current boost system and its attendant issues. However, systemic issues require systemic...

    When completing trade or other types of wing missions I think it would be good if I could make use of the hired crew or hire npcs to take along as part of the wing. They could use my spare engineered ships or have access to their own grades of ships for differing costs. They could be cast as...

Some of us either do not want or, for...

    What kind of weapons do the CZ Spec Ops ships use?

    I just got swarmed by the full spec ops wing in a CZ. I didn’t stick around for long. They burned through my ~1.5K MJ shields in about 10 seconds. It also looked like they were using some kind of modified beam laser or experimental effect. Has anyone else noticed this? What weapons and/or...

    Almost 2019, thargoids are still not worth anything.

    If you look at it in comparison to pretty much every activity in Elite, from doing exploration, general mission running, hauling cargo, mining, combat.... if you then look at in terms of how much materials/data you can get, and how much credits you can get, all of them have at least something...

    Remember previous cockpit mode (combat/analysis) when loading the game

    At the moment the ship always reverts to Combat mode when signing in. As an Explorer with no weapons fitted, I don't need Combat mode and would prefer my ship to load always in Analysis mode if possible. Could the programmers change this behaviour to remember the mode which was active when the...
