    How I Lost Millions Worth of Data in an Instant

    tl;dr: I just lost days worth of exploration data because I wanted to land on a planet before going to bed. I started in Elite Dangerous a couple months ago. At first I wasn't crazy about it, but I was able to buy an ASP Explorer after doing a wing mission with friends. Started grinding...

    [Suggestion] New galaxy map overlay categories: Traffic volume & Risk level

    In a game where players are distributed fairly thinly across a gigantic play area, we need a way of determining where most players are (for lawful and outlaw purposes). This would result in more organic PvP scenarios which can currently be very hard to find unless you go to a CG, which can get...

    Exploration Data Black Box

    So many explorers play in private or solo mode for fear of losing many days worth of game play in one accident, or being destroyed by another ship. As more of an intensive for explorers to play in Open I propose the following. I suggest adding a Black Box that CMDR's can interact with. A...

    Exploration data lost?

    Greeting Commanders, I am far away from home and I am exploring the Void. I haven't play for a few months, so I update the game and was presented with new kind of scanner and new Planet scanner with probes. As much as cool it is I went to see what the Codex was and I find out that I...

    Codex 'records'.

    We all saw that section of the Codex. It is a great idea, sort of a fishing thing, where you can see what was the smallest and the biggest one you "caught" so far. The problem is, it doesn't seem to work. It doesnt matter how many particular stars or planets you find the records sections will...

    More useful galaxy map.

    So, I sat down to play Elite today, on my xbox for a change, and quickly discovered that it was frustratingly difficult to tease any useful information out of the in-game map interface. When playing on the PC, we have quick and easy access to multiple third-party web sites to perform routine...

    Newcomer / Intro Stupid question about data

    Hi everyone. Can I ask a silly noob question about data? Is it inherently a whole lot more difficult to accumulate it than raw and manufactured materials? Or is there some reliable way of getting data (particularly rarer forms) other than pointing a wake scanner and hoping for the best? What...

    All exploration data lost - I'm so fed up!

    Guardian data retrieval

    Hi guys, returning starside after a break and in need of guardian data for the impending Q2 update. Can anyone confirm the current situation with data obelisks? Does one require the correct combination of artifacts to retrieve pattern data, or are you still able to get it just by scanning? Any...

    Missions to colonia?

    Hey cmdrs, I was wondering if anyone has seen any more data delivery missions to colonia anymore? I know there were a bunch when 2.4 hit but I haven’t seen any since then. I wanted to pick up a few on my way out into the black since I plan on being out there a while and don’t want to take...

    Discussion Secure Data

    Is the client data encrypted from client to server? I'm not terribly afraid of someone hacking my account, but I'm curious. I still use a VPN for most all internet traffic. But this only encrypts my data to the VPN server and not the game server. Cheers! CMDR Zund

    Wake Scanning for Data

    I play in a pretty varied way, I travel around, I trade, do missions & explore, I shoot at stuff until it pops then collect the stuff that falls out. So as far as the new materials & data collection is concerned I have collected a lot of everything, many of my bins are full, I miss the dilemma...

    Newcomer / Intro Data deliver missions- credit toward trade rank?

    So I haven't been able to find answer to this question so I thought I would try here. Do data delivery missions/courier(data delivery) missions give credit toward trade rank? If so, do bonuses received on those data delivery missions also count toward trade rank or is only the original amount...

    Trying to make SENSE of SENSORS - in regards to ship scanning for DATA

    Up to now, I've mainly been putting D-rated sensors on most ships and A-rated sensors on combat ships, as I heard a long time ago, that you can pick up enemy ships from greater distance. This seemed simple enough, and I really had no need for further inquiry, as there weren't any options to...

    Please can we have a 32t fuel tank for the Chieftain?

    Please could we have the fuel tank in the Chieftain increase to a 32t as standard, as this would make this ship just that bit more perfect for those of us who would like to do more than just combat. I for instance would like to use this tough ship as a secure fast transport for passengers, and...

    Why is the Explorer path so unbalanced?

    So, I have a question, why is the explorer career so unbalanced? This applies to all modes, but this is mostly about Open. The context here is when your ship is destroyed as opposed to your time investment. Let me explain.... (hint, there is a TL;DR to this.) The Combat Role: If you are...
