    What is the point of the 3 crew members....

    What is the point of the 3 crew members when we can only have 1 on board at any time? So I have a very rich Elite crew member and put her into retirement whilst I trained up another to deadly. I am currently training up my 3rd and final crew member. But what's the point of having 3 crew members...

    Bridge Crew Feature for E.D.

    Fellow CMDRS and Devs (if your reading) I have a gameplay feature id like to put forward, wether or not it's been mentioned in the past i don't know. // Bridge-Cockpit crew // So my idea would be that at stations, you can hire NPC CMDRS to fly with you on your ship, the amount of NPCs you can...

    Feature: "Friend searches for wing"/"Friend searches for crew"

    Current state Right now, ways to get a crew are: "Open" search Sending direct invite Coordination via other channels (chat, Discord, voice, etc.) There is no way to find wingmates except for other channels (and direct invite) Problem statement I have a squadron and a large set of ingame...

    Wing up with crew members or hire npc's

    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...

    A couple of ideas for future updates

    Hey Fdev and community, I was thinking about what the near future will bring for Elite and noticed that there were very little details about what to come. I have thought of a couple of things, either new or improvements that perhaps might make the game feel even more alive than it already is...

    Idea - Allow an NPC to turn the FSS into an ADS

    I've vocally supported the new exploration tools, but I've also strongly advocated for giving us NPC crewmates in a (near) future update. Having just scanned a system with 80 planets, even I thought, "Wow, that was tedious!" So here's my idea: Why not allow an NPC crewmate, one who sits on the...

    Ship Concept - Carrier

    I've loved the idea of being a large ship, with tools to support my wing with strike craft, and utilities, as well as support the strike craft. (I'm working on a healer/disabler support platformer with my Cutter now in fact.) Battlestar Galactica Online had player carriers, which was one of my...

    Pushing the boundaries of CMDR laziness, I present to you...the Combat Computer!

    No cheats, exploits, nor macros involved. Just feed your favorite NPC (non-player cyborg) concubine/janitor 10% of your gross income and you'll never have to deal with PvE combat again. Apologies for the sloppy camera work, I was eating a plate of French toast while Alynna (affectionately known...

For those of you who are not aware, CESS (Cone Expedition Support Service) was a community project aimed at gathering as many of the players interested in taking part in the Cone expedition in the one place. This allowed...

They have HUGE ego's that dont match the whimpering they do when under attack. 1) So i have had to hired a few npc's mostly i use them whenever i need...

    So I had a strange accident happen the other day.. https://youtu.be/HV6zA3Lf-ZE I showed this to frontier and they have offered to not only refund my rebuy, but also save my crew member. Again, thank you so much for this frontier! (It's so hard to find a decent looking crew member!) While...

    Escape PODs for crew members

    could you introduce escape PODs for crew members. when your ship is destroyed instead of your crew member being killed, put them in an escape POD. the POD will last for X number of days... who knows what X is, should it be a month or a week.... to be decided, maybe by have different classes...

    Naval realism in space is lacking

    Before I start this is more so directed at the navy vets here who have seen shows like Battlestar Galactica. I find that the weapons deploy with no klaxon no lights nothing plus I’m looking at npc gunners that get to turret room and not locking crews behind fighter bays. Like I fly a viper and i...

    NPC crew training

    With the introduction of the Krait and newfound popularity of SLFs, maintaining a stable of upper rank crew members seems more relevant than ever (especially for someone who expects to use, and eventually lose, them in conflict with other CMDRs). I've generally found it most efficient to allow...

    Horizons Wing missions are *almost* working in Crew - can we get the last step fixed?

    I've done a few tests with random players and found that right now, as of 3.0, Wing missions already almost work with Multicrew. Namely: Player can take & share wing mission while in crew Crewmembers can accept the wing mission Crewmembers see the mission in transaction tab Crewmembers get...

    Keelback second seat in the pipeline?

    It seems mad to me that the Keelback can have a fighter bay but you can't bring a friends along to fly that ship. I saw a post on Reddit stating that it was on the roadmap - as suggested in a live stream earlier this year. Is this correct?

    Save your crew when you die

    As per title, the punishment of losing an elite pilot crew when you die is just too harsh. Yes it is true that you can inactivate them to avoid that, but what's good an inactive pilot can do when I do have an SLF hangar? Yes, you might also lose your ship if you don't have the rebuy, but for...

    Frontier Store Cockpit Customization

    Hello, I just wanted to suggest to add more Cockpit Customizations to the game. For example plastic dinosaurs like in Firefly (NO BOBBLEHEADS!), cups, cans etc. to look more liveable. I also appreciate all the raider kits but especially on/in a Cutter it doesn't really fit, so kits for Cockpits...

    NPC Crew

    NPC Crew idea

    Suggestions to alleviate some frustrations

    Last night I spent a lot of my time gathering research data for Ram Tah, after turning all of that data in I was surprised with by credit balance not reflecting the reward I got from Ram Tah. Turned out that the crew I left at station took an absolutely huge cut of my reward, even though all...

    2 New Mission Type Ideas

    Well I am an Xbox CMDR and I’m getting a little sick of reading about Beta woes and Engineer saltiness and general whinging so I figured I’d come offer up some alternative discussion. Here are two new ideas for mission types that would require very little effort to implement but, in my opinion...

    Multi-crew and wings

    Has FDev ever said why we can either join a crew XOR a wing? Why not allow the two to coexist simultaneously? I have friends that will join my crew because they're weirdos who will shoot things as a fighter pilot but refuse to do anything but trade as a profession and other friends who want to...

    Crew Lounge

    When I played this game with my friends, we did play together in a group with similar missions, but where there missions that forced you to have more than one player precent? How about we make a large list of missions(from a tab inside a station??) that can be beaconed out to closeby systems so...

    More uses for "Occupied Escape Pods"

    As trivial as this may be to some I think it could be a neat idea to both enhance immersion and save those all important Cr. When we pick up Occupied Escape Pods I'd love to see the chance of a crew offer at a further subbed cost, maybe not with every pod but some, seeing as these poor...
