    What about cross platforms?

    I heard that FDevs would have taken in consideration the topic right after the carrier update, but since the many postponements I haven’t actually heard anyone talk about it. I know there are a few issues like duplicate CMDR names or slow instancing but I think that with the right effort...

    I almost feel bad for Frontier

    I'm sure that the management and developers at Frontier are enthusiastic about the new features they bring to their games (in this case, Elite Dangerous). And while they expect some negative feedback, I can't help but think that they have been caught totally off-guard with the level of...

    To Frontier Developement

    Hello FDev, Could we please, please, have the option to modulate our fleet carriers so we could have a variety of fleet carriers. I would love to be able to make a fleet carrier that is like a carrier. With as many little fighters as possible, where when we drop in multiple bays start releasing...

    Gameplay & Immersion: Changes / Improvements

    (Over the course of my playing, i’ve documented areas in which the game could be greatly improved upon without needing massive or game changing overhauls to existing systems in place. These are 13 different changes or implementations that could be made to drastically set Elite: Dangerous apart...

    Add Comets, Oort clouds, and other new shiny stellar phenomenon?

    I love the galaxy in Elite, but I always wished there was just a little more to the asteroid belts, planet rings and other non-planetary bodies out in the black. I think it would be fun to add comets that travel from system to system, maybe even some large enough for small ships to land on, or...

    Frontier, You're the Best!! (2020 content)

    FDEV, you're the best! As a real CMDR, I just wanted to say: 99% of the player base support your decision to push content back to 2020, and beyond. This is because we know for a fact that it will be better than ever before! Do not listen to that 1% of entitled life time pass owner's... I...

    Type 7 needs a Medium hardpoint!

    With the new "gold rush" of mining, both the super-valuable void opals and just general core mining being great, it's now a very viable gameplay style for both new and old players. But with some of my newer friends to the game starting out, i've noticed there's two awkward holes in progression...

    Can't multicrew explore without multicrew SRV!

    The addition of the turret-style system & planet scanner, which allows multiple people (and crew) to use it at the same time, is great for multicrew! It actually allows players to cooperate together, and scan a system twice as fast, or even thrice as fast if you're wing exploring. (does it work...

    The Combat Logging Compromise. (FDEV Please Read.)

    Combat logging (Via Task-kill) has existed in Elite, without punishment since launch. If you do not know what combat logging is, or understand its implications on the game, and community, please see Rinzler o7o7o7's post(s) regarding it (at the bottom of this post.) Now, since there is no...

    What is the REAL reason for Permit Lock Regions?

    We are told by Fdev, that these areas are reserved for future content, however in the history of the game, I am unaware of a single permit locked region becoming unlocked for any reason. Fdev delivered the all the Guardian and Thargoid content we have seen thus far into regions that were not...

    My idea Fix the bugs!

    With every patch/update just brings more bugs. Understandable and to be expected to an extent. What is not acceptable is for "known bugs" to still be plaguing the game FOR YEARS! When are you going to get on top of this? Known bugs list just keeps getting larger, can you provide an ETA of...

    Still only 10.000cr for new thargoid scouts, seriously???

    I initially thought this was a bug and i asked the frontier help account on twitter once i realized that the entirely new, more dangerous thargoid scouts... do not provide any bigger combat bonds at all... and this is intended behavior. Seriously?? The arguably easy thargoid scouts of before...

    Player faction decals!

    Please please please can we look into adding player faction decals to the livery? It should be fairly easy, there could be a page for submitting designs for review. I think this would be a small thing that goes a long way towards cementing the player involvement in the galactic story. If it's a...

    Thoughts on incorporating player based business’ in the game? Ie: space fedex

    So, I had an idea that I think would be awesome addition to the game as well as increase the immersion too. How would you feel about allowing players to have their own business in the game like space fedex. The concept would allow a player the option to either use in game service to transfer...

    Moment for Thanks

    Is FDev trying to kill Elite Dangerous because of Star Citizen?

    They are killing every way in the game to earn fast CR, why is that? Are they giving up because they know this game cannot compete with Star Citizen, so they are making people leave the game and then they can finally shutdown servers for good?

    "I'm a Doctor, Jim, not a coal miner!"

    This is unacceptable. Why is it that FDev always prioritizes payouts and exploits, but broken stuff like this gets ignored!? In almost every station I go, its been nigh unto impossible to find a decent set of cargo missions (I've been running cargo as my job since 2.3 hit). I tried passenger...

    Speed of Hyperspace Drive?

    Hypothetical speed of the Hyperspace drive. Tl;dr at the bottom: I was thinking about how the distance from Earth to the Milky Way's galactic center is about 8,330 Parsecs(About 27,000 Lightyears). With this in mind, I was also thinking about how the top speed of Supercruise is 2,000c, which...
