    Request for PIN function for engineers (Odyssey and Horizons)

    In horizons we got some sort PIN function for blueprints. Why there is no that function for Odyssey? Every time i want to upgrade my suit or weapon i take a picture of materials that i need to find, rather press "PIN button". Great example Fallout 4. It has "PIN button", if you use it, every...

    Jude Navarro - won't accept Genetic Repair Meds

    Anyone else having trouble getting the UI to allow the passing of Genetic Repair Meds since update 6.1? I had previously managed to pass 4 prior to update 6. The arrows are just not accepting a click, and thus I can't get his referral.

    Issues with bookmarks

    I have an issue where a bookmark for an engineers settlement will appear in the settlement tab and and a different engineers will only appear in the systems tab, I've tried to delete and bookmark them again but this seems to do the same but with different engineers appearing in different...

    Small Update Suggestion for Ground Engie Locations

    If Oddy is going to remain as grindy as it is right now, the least FDev can do to help with the issue of going to a Ground Engineer to upgrade their equipment is to implement 2 TINY changes to the Engie Bases. Put a Pioneer Supplies shop in the base, so folks can upgrade their equipment in case...

    5 of the 9 Odyssey Engineers are Clones

    Fdev copied 3 engineers and 2 look identical. Some are nothing like their Horizons versions such as Lei Cheung. See this thread by oomcommander.

    Engineers Appalled at the "falling back" to old engineering for space legs upgrades...

    I cannot even fathom right now... WHO thought this was a good idea? And why? Also, permanent upgrades that can't be swapped? The hell are they slotted in with? Old-school superglue? This is pretty sad to see. So now you're re-adding tedium that EVERYONE hated in the first place, and offering no...

    Does anyone know if enhancing the range of a plasma weapon improves the projectile speed?

    Title, basically. As I've not noticed any significant damage falloff with the pistol or sniper. Haven't used the rifle much as the damage is a bit too low for my liking, although the falloff is definitely noticeable on the shotgun. So, yeah. Does anyone know?

    Odyssey engineer unlock broken or am I doing something wrong?

    So trying to unlock Hero and Tera. I've done around 30 ground conflict zones, and today did at least 6 heists on the ground also. Nothing, logged out went to another system and nothing, still both greyed out. Am I missing something here or are these engineers bugged? :(

    Why Sale of Engineered Modules should be Allowed

    Allow players to sell engineered modules to stations or to other players via fleet carriers for high prices. If someone wants an engineered module but doesn't want to collect materials and engineer it themselves, they can go to someone's carrier and buy the module ready there. It's a win-win...

    Replacing Engineered Modules

    Hi :) So, I've not posted to a forum before...let alone this one...so if I commit a faux-pas please let me know. Anyway! My question concerns what happens to an engineered (enhanced) module if you replace that module with another. Do you have to get the new module done as well? Or does the...

    Engineering or Guardian Technology?

    Greetings Commanders! I just fully A-rated my Conda and, as the title suggests, I am wondering what I should go into first - engineering or Guardian technology? I don't mind some grinding. Which should I do first? Which requires more time? Which is most effective? Sorry if this was posted...

    The Bubble-Engineers must not be worse than the Colonia-Engineers. Equal but not worse.

    If someone wants to go to colonia that is fine and admirable, yet not everyone does. And with all the grind in ED, asking me to go to Colonia to get me G4-Shieldcells is a bit much to ask ... Surely I could just pin the recipe and get the experimental somewhere in the bubble but will I then have...

    Clean drives rework

    Clean drives don't really seem to help much with what they are "supposed" to do. The increase to thermal spread is counteracted by the increase in power draw, which leads a near insignificant change. All you end up with is a marginally faster ship with significantly increased power requirements...

    Ideas to Buff/Much Further Implement Powerplay

    1. Allow Empire and Federation associated powerplay activities to contribute to the Empire or Federation rank grinds for ship access. 2. DRASTICALLY increase merit gain from all sources (and add more sources) so that the merit grind for rating 5 is actually even remotely worth it for every...

    Engineers Engineering Rant

    While Engineers were improved in 3.0, the actual logic behind them bothers me to this day, and I really wish Frontier had implemented an entirely different system. Engineers feel like a copy-n-paste of the crafting system in games like ESO. In that game, you "farm" materials - plants for...

    Raw engineering materials as mission rewards

    The addition of raw engineering materials to mission rewards would help cut out a lot of the griping over grinding in the game. Material grade offered could be linked to mission ranking, and with the traders even getting lower grades of materials that can be traded up could make for a happier...

    ACTUALLY buff HGE spawns.

    As we know, FDev claimed to have "buffed" HGE's a while back. Then a week later they were stealth nerfed back to a worse a spawn rate than before. Maybe stick to them being a little more common and have more players actively playing the game, and less getting miffed that they can't ever find...

    Engineers rework...

    ... is a damn smart move. I must say that i really like the ability to have several modules or weapons engineered the same identical way. And i appreciate the new way of personalization by the experimental effects. Thanks FD.

    Beam laser color changes with engineering

    I have 3 efficient beam lasers g5 with thermal vent on my vette (2x medium ×1 large) and for some reason only the large beam has changed its color to Orange and the others haven't? Is this a glitch or this is how it's supposed to be?

    Engineers Emmisive. Broken.

    Just a quick issue i'd like to raise concerning emmisive rounds. Every other effect has a very short timer, why is it that emmisive lasts for pushing 25/30 seconds? This effect as it stands breaks any sort of SR builds any player can come up with. Now im not saying its a bad effect here, but it...

    Engineers dont care about module size

    So why dont engineers take into account the size of the module their engineering? Would make perfect sense to me that a class 1A shield generator should take less mats to engineer to G5 than a 8A prismatic shield generator. Just seems like a one size fits all system where a little bit of...

    Frame Shift Drive: New vs Old Engineers

    Greetings CMDRs! So I’m 30,000 LY from home right now, a little over a quarter of the way into circumnavigating the Milky Way counter-clockwise. Point being, I’m too far to try out the new engineering since 3.0 dropped. I apologize if another forum addresses this but I couldn’t find anything...

    Engineers Overcharged is way more useful and powerful than anything else

    +70% more damage?! Why would anyone choose anything else? Nothing comes close. I consider this a really poor design decision as it kills variety. Or is there something here I just do not see or understand?

    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...

    Engineering Repair Limpits/Advanced Scanner

    I was just wondering why I can't engineer both the repair limpit and advanced scanner from any of the Engineers. I'd like to think you can as you can engineer other scanners and limpit modules. Weight off both items would be great for the FSD range.

    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...
