    Let's get some issues confirmed

    So most of us here I imagine are hoping that there will be a lot of Exploration/Codex fixes in the December update... I was adding a couple of issues to the tracker last night and I noticed that a couple of the ones I was going to add were already there, but with only one or two comments on...

    Is this a known exploration reward issue?

    I wonder why this terraformable high metal content planet "A 6" has such a low value. "A 7" is mostly the same (terraformable hight metal content) and gave a somewhat expected 2,127,755 CR. But "A 6" only gave 184,249 CR. How can this be? I've yet to see a terraformable planet rewarding so few...

    Well it works, but I don't like it...

    I tried the trick of unlocking framerate to speed up POI scans in the FSS, and it does speed it up. It's still a bit slow, but nowhere near as bad as when FPS is locked to monitor refresh. However, I really, strongly dislike the screen tearing and stuttering artifacts this creates. I'll take a...

    Boosting Search and Rescue Payouts

    Search and Rescue lacking Releasing a search and rescue carrier, looking forward to it, problem is payout for missions are HORRENDOUSLY underpaid.

    The Conflux and Hawkin´s Gap (Part what?)

    I was wondering. As far as I have read yet, there is much of a hassle to the Formidine Rift, and the Zurara. There also are two more areas to be researched, yet. But...I did not find anything more that the abandoned settlements in those areas. There must be more to this! But where? I haven´t...

    More star variance.

    I've been thinking, since the star is the first and sometimes the only thing players see when they jump into a system, perhaps it would make sense to model multiple variants of each star type to keep things interesting. You'd still have the same star types, sizes, etc. This would be purely...

    Suposing an Exploration FC makes a jump to a 500Ly distant star system, previously unreachable, and that system doesn't include the materials needed to fuel the beast... Does the FC have a suicide button, and will the player be faced with a rebuy for the FC and all of the ships/modules on board...

    From True Explorer to Tourist

    I used to be a True Explorer, but since restarting on PC I've become a not-so-true Tourist. This means that I'm purposefully exploring the Bubble itself, without caring about my name on discovery or mapped tags or making zillions of credits through Stellar Cartography. In some ways, tourism is...

    28,322 atmospheres? What?

    Is this even possible or is it just a bug in procedural generation? It also says it has a water atmosphere, and its 2,482K.

    Explorers nameplates

    Been surfing a new Frontier Shop today to find some cool stuff to decorate my exploration ship with, but found the choice of nameplates for this particular activity is still...quite disappointing. To begin with — there're very few of them. I believe there're 2 sets, one of which I have...

    Explorer Phantom

    Hi Commanders, I am thinking of switching from the Annie to a Krait Phantom for exploring. It should hit more than 70ly. Not because I am in a rush in exploring, but because it is helpful to reach remote systems. And because it helps if you wanna get home quickly. I will optimise life support...

    Did the Exploration Server just implode?

    I just made ≈300 ARX selling exploration data. I am ED!

    And by “ED” I mean I have no idea how this poopoo got through the initial brainstorming phase. Why, you ask? Simple. If the ARX income from exploration depends on SELLING THE DATA, this is ACTIVELY PUNISHING explorers. Great move, can we fix this please? Edit: oh, and the forum apparently...

    ASP Max USABLE Jump Range

My current max range is 70.92, but I only get 67.62 on a full tank. Ideally I wanted...

I've scoured the web searching for a way to claim them all i find is using a DSS in a planet and turning in the data first, claims a planet. Yet unless my games broke, the DSS doesn't work in stars.

    Hi Commanders! I've been exploring since a long time know, but I still haven't discovered any biological elements by myself.

    To Frontier: what are multicrew exploration rewards supposed to be?

    Ever since it was implemented in the first beta of Chapter Four, multi-crew exploration never rewarded the crew's effort with anything. No credits, no rank progression. (Also no tags, but that is probably for the best.) To make sure, neither after the session, nor when the host sells the data...
