    So multicrew doesn't provide any exploration rewards?

    I'm confused - I thought multicrew allowed copilots to share the discovery tags and rewards from universal cartography, but that's not what happen when I just tried it. Am I doing something wrong, or is only combat and trading rewarded? If the latter, while ignore one out of the three major rank...

    Fleet Carrier and Cartography Data. Reasoning for higher payouts...

    As fleet carriers are effectively mobile travelling stations, and to aid their future navigation. It’s in the best interests of that fleet carrier and its crew to amass as much cartography data as possible. (For realistic pretend gameplay reasons) Isn’t it a good idea for the FC’s cartography...

    Around the Galaxy

    "God, this is taking FOREVER!" Commander Golden-Knight had gone for about a hundred or two lightyears out of "The Bubble" before the first day was done, as far as the trip around the galaxy was going. The pilot lost count of how many worthless ice balls had to be scanned with a fine-tooth comb...

    Glorious HIPs - 3306

    Since the development of the fast frameshift drive opened the galaxy to independent CMDRs a substantial proportion of stars from the Hipparcos (HIP) catalog have been visited and surveyed in detail. However, a significant minority (roughly one in six) of the approximately 120,000 stars in the...

    Bread Crumbs

    It would be useful to have a "bread crumbs" feature on the SRV's scanner, so you can easily see where you have been. It feels like it would be a relatively common navigation software feature for and exploration vehicle like an SRV.

    Rent your FC for AFK credits!

    I don't know if I'll ever be able to afford a fleet carrier; I hate grinding and the nerfs are coming! Thing is, I don't need to own a fleet carrier to do what I want. I would happily rent a FC from another player, but this means that player would need to actually "give" me their carrier for a...

    Exploration in a wing when bodies have already been discovered

    Hypotetical : Let's say I scanned a whole system with fss, then sell it. Then make a wing with my buddy. Does he see the system as undiscovered? Can he/we still scan it for him to then sell? Trying to understand how "already known" data is shared in a wing. Thanks!

    A Moment's Rest is stationed in the Bubble Nebula.

    Greetings CMDRs, I wanted to inform any explorers that I stationed my FC, A Moment's Rest, within the Bubble Nebula to support any explorers passing through. It is located in Bubble Sector LX-T B3-1. It will stay there indefinitely, or at least until Odyssey comes out depending on what new...

    Key toggle for Map/Orrery view. And pinned tabs for Sys Map

    A bit of a QoL improvement for the exploring kind. And why not others, as well. But yeah, like the title says. A bindable key one can press to switch between Map and Orrery views while perusing the System Map. It's kind of jarring at the moment as the view selection buttons hide inside the...

    Borann is the WORST thing to happen to ED in a long time!

    To contrast my other thread of mine about the lovely pirating opportunities that Borann brought to the game, I'm now encountering one of the major flaws of Borann (and perhaps mining in general) - the devaluation of credits. Things that used to make feel like I accomplished something no longer...

    A question about UC on FC

    Here's a simple question that would potentially make a huge difference to a poor explorer like me. Will carrier owners make any credits when another player uses their UC? Is there any way to "trade" this data, where the carrier owner can pay a lower fee and then sell that data at a higher price...

    Hi, all, I hope all of you are doing well? I seem to have bumped into somewhat of a problem today: I'm currently in the Inner Scutum-Centaurus Arm, farting about around Colonia, and a couple of days ago, I came up with the "great" idea of trying to "complete"/"fill" the Codex, by going to the...

    Fleet Carriers need to use more existing game play mechanics.

    I'm amazed at how few of the existing game play mechanics are used by the fleet carriers. Fleet carriers could make use of existing game play loops that are already familiar to players. I believe the following mechanics would significantly enhance the capabilities of the carriers and make them...

    Fleet Carriers: Expand the upkeep management game for explorers

    Fleet Carriers seem to come with quite a few benefit as well as close-to-crippling costs. This is especially the case for explorers that will have to seriously top up the onboard credit account to be able to take them anywhere for prolonged periods of time. One solution often suggested is to...

I understand that...

    [Fleet Carriers] Exploration Fixes/suggestion

    OK, so, there's a significant uproar from the Exploration community (myself included) about carriers. They seem, at the moment, literally useful for miners, minor combat applications, traders aannnnndd...... that's it. So, what do we get out of it? Well, nothing, other than a 5 billion credit...

    Fleet Carrier changes. (Feel free to add your own)

    Couple things need to change: More jumps per full tank, maybe four. Time spool-up and cool-down needs to be half an hour, not an hour. (maybe if exploration is speced into only) my engineered ship can do 500ly in about 2~ hours if I push it with guardian FSD Boosters. Fleet Carriers should be...
  32. The Chairmaker

    Fleet carriers able to purchase exploration data, store it then sell it to universal cartographics.

    My proposal would be for Fleet carriers to have an exploration data secure storage utility. The fleet carrier commander would set a percentage figure which would be a cut of the value that would normally be received by a commander on sale of exporation data to universal catorgraphics. Data...

    Where Do You Want To Park Your Fleet Carrier?

    This is not meant to be a post on the costs or upkeep of an FC. I want a more optimistic ideal about them. Something we know is that FCs can jump 500ly at a time. And they can be modified tailored to Exploration, Mining, Bounty Hunting. Etc. Where do you want to park yours? I’m thinking of...

    General Exploration and scanning

    After exploring and scanning 1000's of planets I have stopped even looking at resources on the planets. There are no surprises as each resource is always within a very limited range. Just once I would like to find a planet that is abundant in something that is rare elsewhere in the galaxy or...

    I would like to suggest that the ‘high wake’ jumping animation is revised. The galaxy of Elite is just quite incredible; to be able to go and explore a 1:1, astrophysically accurate simulation of the Milky Way is amazing. The number of screenshots and shared stories created by Cmdrs shows just...

    Mysteries, or just bugs?

    I sometimes discover things in this game that are mysterious, especially when the rumors of Raxxla and The Dark Wheel dance around in the back of my head. Yet when I investigate these things, nothing comes of them, making me think these are just bugs in the game. Here are a couple of examples...
