    General A suggestion for BGS factions

    I'm relatively new to Elite: Dangerous, so I apologize if this is something that has already been suggested. I really think it would help Elite become a better game if creating a BGS faction gave more of a connection to the original creator. Perhaps as a new career path. What would people think...

    Allow single player "pledges" to a specific faction, please!

    Hello Frontier! I really like the faction tracking tools you provide squadrons. I even created my own squadron for the sole purpose of tracking a faction I was working for. However, this prevents me from being a member of an actual squadron, and it feels a bit overkill for accessing this one...

    Noob Questions and Confusion

    I RTFM and am still confused.. So I'll just ask my questions: 1) Is there an influence cap per BGS tick? Is it possible to somehow trigger a NEGATIVE influence by over-'milking' high influence rewards? The last influence mission I turned in showed the faction's influence bar in the red instead...

    The Wanderers are an in game faction that has two main focuses: The BGS system- taking over systems and how that is done is up to the skills and preferences of our pilots, the Wanderers do not discriminate pilot types as long as you don’t harm any other Wanderers unless it’s an organised event...

    Powerplay Does Powerplay actually affect any RP?

    Noob question - does Powerplay actually affect how the galaxy progresses? For example, say the factions supporting Edmund Mahon took the time to ally themselves with the factions of Denton Patreus and they started cooperating in BGS. Would the in-game universe explain it in that Edmund Mahon...

    Known Issues with the 3.3.02 BGS (orig. AEDC Discord)

This seemed wise to share with all of the BGS community, and may be an easy list for FD to work from, should they come across...

    Newcomer / Intro How to align squadron to minor faction?

    I have been trying to affiliate my squadron to a minor faction in a system but it isn't present in the list where you chose the faction you want to affiliate with. Can somebody please tell me how I can align my squadron to a minor faction? (I am allied with the faction)

    Squadron driven founding and expansion of minor factions.

    Greetings commanders, this is a suggestion for not quite overhauling, but tweaking the BGS and minor factions function, but let me preface with a simple statement: As we all know, Squadrons can pledge allegiance to a minor faction. And this, fellow commanders is what i propose to be the...

    Faction States

    While the new ability for a faction to be affected by multiple states sounds great. It still seems off. Wouldn't it make more sense for a "famine" or "outbreak" state to affect a whole planet, or station, rather than just a faction? It's like if a new flu epidemic broke out but only labour...

    More Depth to Trading in the BGS

    Introduction So as of now, trading in BGS only affects the controlling faction of the station. If you think about this, you come two one of 2 conclusions: a) The controlling faction gets a monopoly in all industries on a station. b) The controlling faction is in charge of the port and flow of...

    Sane smuggling

    Megaships and Rep

    A megaship should have its own faction(s) like any other station. It shouldn't change to the local system factions every time it moves. No ship would operate this way. The owners of the ship and allied groups would be on the ship not changing random factions that may or may not be aligned with...

    Space legs for better missions

    Whilst I concur that more diverse missions and joined up missions are good - more content is more - it all seems to me to continue the [Fly to location, perform preprogrammed action, get new location] format, relieved only by possible combat. The combat itself is also quite samey; you fight and...

    Rare Commodity suggestion.

    I would like rare goods that are blocked by factions to be available to buy on the black market. It would be nice if we could use the black market as a black market.
