    mini game : make it an option, do not trash it

    Mini game in exploration is fun. I understand lot of players dislike it but can't you make it an option instead ? Thanks to the dev team

    It's great that exploration has been polished, but...

    ... does anyone else have this problem? Here is what the DSS looks like it in the live game: The vector for firing probes is conveniently attached to the centre of the body in focus, and all we have to do is set the azimuth and distance from centre to lob a probe at the planet. It works. Here...

    A different perspective on exobiology

    Since it's all so doom and gloom around here... The exploration "career" in Elite has never been my thing. I'm just a few percentage points shy of an Elite rating, but it's all from rather shortish trips, around 5,000 LY max to specific destinations I wanted to see. The rather passive game play...

    Already tired of seeing the same plants everywhere. Suggestions for variety

    I know I'm not the only one who feels like this, nor am I the first to complain about it. But exploration has been my bread and butter in Elite up until Odyssey, and I'm a little disappointed in the execution of the atmospheric worlds and their biodiversity. Which is almost non-existent so far...

    Improve exploration player retention by leaving behind black box upon death.

    I've known a couple players, and seen the threads for countless others, who have given up on Elite after dying during a long exploration session. My idea is that after collecting more than 500k in exploration data, any ship death will leave behind a signal source with all that data in the form...

    Intruigingly low-mass sector

    In exploring during the Odyssey Expedition, I found near waypoint 8 that the systems in the Hypou Briae sector are unusually low-mass for their mass class. I was informed that the mass classes in a sector are scaled based on the heaviest system in said sector, so this means that the whole sector...

    Newcomer / Intro Odyssey exploration question

    Hello, fellow comanders. Right now I am outside of the bubble, coming back from traveling to Beagle Point. My question is, will I be able to land and explore planets on foot without returning to some station, to buy the gear, or it will be similar to Horizons DLC, and my ship will automaticly...

    Can't recall ship from SRV

    I'm a bit upset. I've got two months of exploration data, now possibly lost due to the fact that I can't get my ship to land on the surface. Because my Planetary Vehicle Hangar is active, the power limit is exeeded, so it just crashes to the ground whenever i recall the ship. I don't know what...

    Exploration missons

    Anyone with a Carrier who's headed to Rackham's Peak want to graciously pick up a CMDR in HIP 50943?

    So I fired up the game for the first time in weeks (if not months), tuned in to Galnet and promptly heard about Rackham's, which could be reached "with ships with long jump ranges." Surely, I thought, my Asp X that took me to Sadge A* and Colonia qualified. NUUUOOPE. Therefore I'm stranded in...

    Add a way to name firstly-discovered (first walked?) planets or even systems

    That would be great if a Commander will be able to name a whole system or at least a planet which is first discovered by them. Or, to couple it with Odyssey, those where they are first walked by a surface. To keep space civilized and at the same time not add any moderators to the team, it...

    Lander Launcher?

    Fleet Carriers should honk systems when they arrive.

    I'm heading to Colonia with my fleet carrier. Sometimes my carrier jumps ahead of my survey ship into unknown systems. The carrier arriving in such a system should "honk" it and reveal all the bodies in the system.

    Are fleet carriers disappearing from deep space?

    Shortly after I got my fleet carrier this summer, I took it out into a sector of unexplored space that I had discovered some time ago on PS4, a place I wanted to make my "home away from home". It's not that far away, under 10KLY from Sol, so while my little sector remained undiscovered, there...

    Ship Integrity Question

I took two auto field maintenance units with me...
