    Engineer screen bug?

    Im aware this issue has been posted about, but nothing has changed! No word from Frontier about this problem, it needs to be noticed. The engineer screen, such as using the engineers workshop/remote workshop has a serious game breaking issue. On the modifications screen where you apply...

    Well, not a true fix but a bit of a workaround until its patched. If you go to the engineers base, you can freely upgrade all your modules UNLESS you cursor over an upgrade that you are missing mats for. Have not yet tested this remote. Does that make sense? Say I am upgrading G5 MC at todds...

    Chloe Sedesi not showing ?

    Hey guys, bit of context. I've been playing for over 2 years on PS4. Not had many issues over that time especially with Engineers. I have been invited and meet all perquisites apart from the fragments (which I need to dock to do). So I decided this morning to head over and top up my sensor...

    PC/VR Version - Didi Vatermann Workshop UI locking up

    I just unlocked Didi Vatermann's workshop and when I go into the workshop UI, I'm able to select my shield generator or one of my shield boosters. But once I do that, the UI locks up. I'm unable to select anything, not even the Back button. I have to exit to Desktop to get out of it. Does...

    Hi all, I have 3 multi cannons that I'm trying to upgrade to level 5. I've gone through each level with each cannon up to level 4 (and each has an experimental effect on as well). But now when I dock up to McQuinn's base and try to upgrade to level 5 I'm getting this error/warning: "TO CRAFT...

    Engineers How do we get Elvira Martuuk to level 5 on FSD engineering?

    I've now upgraded the FSD on 8 ships to level 4 with Elvira Martuuk on Khun (not with pinned blueprints). How do we get her to pop the level five options? Is there a combination of things that we can do/provide her to get off of the level 4 plateau?

    Saving Bug With Engineer

    Just now I have got a bug where I just opened and donated to a new engineer (Selen Jean) and now when I fly to her and land and try to upgrade something it doesn't save and reputation doesn't go up. Also when I restart the game I just spawn in space like 7000 ls from Engineers base. Please help!

    Engineers Can we make engineers sellign all of the parts they engineer?

    Just a small QoL thing that would make an engineering run shorter: Make engineers sell every item they are specialized in, please. Didi Vatermann for example sells no A Shield boosters, that's kinda annoying. Yeah, I know you can get some parts on a station in the same system but at this point...

    canopy shutter: optional internal / modded life support variant

    Inspired by how the windows work in star wars. When your canopy breaks, a steal shutter automatically slams down, closing off the window, preventing oxygen from exiting the cockpit. The shutter would impair your vision, but maintain your HUD allowing you to still see the leads and triangle...

    Hello everyone! Today I'd like to make some suggestions for new weapons ingame that would fit into some not-yet filled niches, create new or alternative playstyles and would be just fun to mess around with. I'd like to present two weapon concepts that I have been thinking about recently. Those...

    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.

    Engineers Storage is bugged at Hera Tani...!

    In the Outfitting at Hera Tani, I'm unable to store or swap my power plant. Buying a 3A power plant from her, does not give the option of storing my existing power plant - even though I have 20 free storage slots (only 40 of 60 used) I can also not transfer / store the existing power supply...

    Horizons Make Materials Easier to Acquire Without Horizons

    Thanks to not all of the Elite community being rich enough to get the Horizons expansion on a dime, the game's MMO (not so much MSO) aspects such as Open Play have quickly and obviously become pay-to-play. Due to this, nearly everyone who does not have access to the ability to come into contact...

    New upgrade System - "Your time is valueable"- is a pure grind and waste of everyones time

    If you watched the stream of today you saw that they showed off the new system.To make things short. Forcing us to roll a module 5 times to "complete" rank 1 to progess further to rank 2 is just a waste of time and material as it is waste of time finding all those material. The materials...

    Engineers Elite Dangerous "What to Keep" Material / Data sheet.

    I couldn't find a list to help me decide if I wanted to keep a Material / Data, so I built one.

OR if I have any use for "UNUSUAL ENCRYPTED FILES" (only if I'm going to engineer an...

    I'm trying to earn rep with Ishmaak. According to Inara, you can earn rep by handing in combat bonds. I have over 2 mil of combat bonds from another system, yet it seems he does not accept it. But according to another thread here, it seems that he does accept combat bonds from ANY system. Does...

    Hey CMDRs, I've been running Palin missions at Obsidian orbital and enjoy the challenge and decent reward, however they feel clunky.

    Ship Builds & Load Outs FDL heat management help needed

    This is my first all encompassing retrofitting I do, since previously I only improved one module or another, not the whole ship. Since I had to unlock most of the engineers, I don’t have enough materials for G5s everything, and I quite enjoy the results so far, except heat buildup. This is what...

    After “working” my way to unlock FF to get my g5 fsd I completely abandoned engineers. Now that I have all ships in the game (except the cutter due to money and laziness), I feel like I can’t postpone this anymore and need to engineer a ship. Maybe I like torturing myself too. In the process I...
