    Icy Traslucent! Features or Bug?

    o7 cmdrs On the planet AO RUN 4 D A we have found a strange feature regarding the icy planet and rocks/fumaroles on the surface. All surfaces not exposed to starlight in the system created a translucence through the rocks with obvious depth effect. The effect can be seen by simply creating a...

    [REQUEST] Tracking Limpets

    tl'dr When you gank a mob, hit the Type-9 (or whatever you want) with a Tracking Limpet, never losing track of the main pack! Basically been running a pile of PVE missions and I'll engage the first few ships from a mob but can never find the main pack again. When I pop into an instance, I can...

    Annoying things.... (feature or bug?)

    1. When I go to supercruise(from stop) my selected star becomes deselected. 2. When leaving ship to srv to do a "on-foot" mission. The location and distance to the object is not avabile anymore from srv.(why are they always dark?) 3. "Route cancelled" seems to happen for no real reason at all.

    Elite dangerous is missing a great opportunity now that you can land on planets.

    I always thought "why are there no races? This is the perfect game for it" it could be just a mini gamer, or even another completely different profession. Now with the release of oddyssey and the availability of landing into planets they're missing a perfect opportunity to add this: Source...

    Even more realistic rings with gaps and moons inside them

    Hey Frontier! Thanks for this beautiful game and astounding galaxy we can wander in! I'm a big fan of the game and also a big fan of Saturn and its ring (the real one). That's what brings me there today. I would love to see gaps with moons in rings in the future. Here is an example of the...

    A Outpost request with new Function/Lore

    I think it's a nice idea to build a outpost near colonia, where all kind of slaves can be get their freedom, because so we can colonize more in the galaxy. I have 100.000.000 Cr on my bank it is not much but a good start for colonize and freedom. What do you all think about it, it is kinda...

    Couple of suggestion features from CMDR Stoikiy

    Hello, dev-s, cmdr-s... this topic can be huge one. My opinion is hardly interesting to anyone, but if there are such people, including project managers, I hope I will see something of this in the future of the game. So let start: 1) suggestion feature: update punishments for PVP crimes...

    A simple feature to add

    Hello to all commanders, I don't know if this has already been discussed, but I have a simple feature that would be interesting to put in the game, especially for explorers. Put some compendium with the systems that the commander was the first to discover, the planets that he was the first to...

    Fur Length Variation

    Hey guys, just thought I'd make this suggestion in the wake of the colour variation update since it would be the next logical step. Would simply need to add two parameters to the material shader that act as a range to modify the fur length value on the shell and fin meshes of the animals...

    Object scaling

    Hello Frontier/Community Something I always missed in planet zoo was scaling items. In my opinion, to unleash ultimate creativity the user has to be able to rescale (certain) items. For example, I think that the option would help in creating scenery where things do not look as repetitive...

    Random Events

    The one (and only) thing I liked about Rollercoaster Tycoon World were the random events. At random times (not too often) you would get a notification that someone (important) is visiting your park on day XY with a special wish (example for Planet Zoo: wanting to see a special/specific animal)...

    Add "Plot Course" Button on Mission Transaction Screen

    When you look at the left panel, select Transactions, and then pick a Mission, there's room for one more button - PLOT COURSE. This would be wonderful! Insert it right before "Open Galaxy Map", since this is why I click that button in the first place, to plot a course. ps - Not everyone is on a...

    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...

    New thread feature request

    Hey guys just a suggestion. How about you add an "Ask Questions" section and add the ability to designate a comment as the correct answer for the OP so that way when they designate it a correct answer then people who click it will be able to jump straight to that comment.

    Bug, Feature or Spongebob?

    Megaship or smaller that players can have.

    I think it would be awesome if players could attain a type of Megaship that a player could upgrade and add modules to which they could call a home base. Players could store their ships/cargo and modules and with the ability of long distance hyper jumps I think would be a killer feature to the...

    Illegal Planetary missions are listed as legal

    No material drop from destroyed ships

    o7 CMDRs, does anyone know if it is a feature of a bug that destroyed ship (CZ) do not drop any materials? Important to say that I am not aligned to any side and do not attack anyone. I just wanted to farm some manufactured materials and thought that CZ would be great for that.

In addition, they offer missions that are directly attached to this that are both cool and profitable, awarding credits, materials, reputation and data. However, systems that are about to be attacked...

    New, larger 8x8 SRVs that use the fighter bay to deploy (only for capable ships)

    It would be nice to have a large, more stable vehicle for surface recon. The current SRV is too short and is really light making it very easy to lose control when hitting bumps. It would be great to have a larger kind of SRV (which would look better because lets be real, the SRV is really ugly)...
