    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...

    something needs to be done.. some group or faction is giving the middle finger to the ENTIRE Elite community by doing everything they can to keep the system in Lockdown. I know many of us who bounty hunt there a lot to try and keep it down but what we can do is limited compared to what the...

    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.

    It's always been a little frustrating trying to plot a route between engineers, especially right after picking up a new ship and outfitting it when everything needs to be engineered. So I made a little chart to see the distances between all engineers. Presented for your consideration: The ED...

    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...

    Engineers Overcharged is way more useful and powerful than anything else

    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.

    This is my first all encompassing retrofitting I do, since previously I only improved one module or another, not the whole ship.
