    Some ideas for post-launch Odyssey features

    So I was just evacuating civies from the burning stations and chatting with some guys about Odyssey and I had some ideas that they thought were really good, so here we go: Recruitable NPC crew. Not like the crew you pick up in the lounge in stations, but like dedicated crew members who help...

    Thoughts on fleet carriers now

    First I'd like to apologise if this has been covered but i Havnt paid enough attention to the forums since the second beta and didn't fine anything in a quick search. To the average fleet carrier carrier owner, now it's been some time, how are your thoughts, still worth it. Have you managed to...

    Galaxy map - system markers not clear enough at long range

    I currently have my fleet carrier out of the bubble, en route to the Formidine Rift. It is designed to be an exploration support vessel, but, because the system markers (the coloured circles) are effectively invisible unless you are in a nearby system, like other fleet carriers it is...

    Filter suggestion

    When flying in a system with way too many fleet carriers, the navigation panel is confusing. One could turn off all the fleet carriers but then you lose your own fleet carrier, and the ones that interest you. How about adding a filter called "bookmarked"? This would allow to solve several...

    Allow NPCs to financially interact with fleet carriers

    I'm sitting here watching dozens (hundreds?) of NPCs interact with my carrier, and whilst it's great to see the landing pads quite so busy I confess I'm a bit annoyed at all these NPCs getting a free ride. They're stopping off, I can only imagine, to refuel and repair after conflict or to empty...

    Please redesign the fleet carrier Commodies Market so we can run proper markets

    The whole carrier market system is currently so basic it hurts :( A proper market should allow you to set a buy and sell price, with the spread being your "margin" or profit. (spread being the difference between the buy and the sell price) I want to be able to specify a size of market (say...

    Fleet Carrier - Crew members and donations

    Hello Frontier and Cmdrs, I'm actually traveling the galaxy with a fellow cmdr as a crew member in his Fleet Carrier. At the moment I can only help him by donating Tritium but I was thinking: It is possible to create a "Crew" section where the Fleet Carrier owner can add other players as...

    Would it good if we can sell engineered gears/ships on FC?

    Current FC's shipyard and outfitting is not very well,players can only buy a large amount of gears/ships in their fc and sell them.And I believe people would rather go for a NPC station than going to a FC to buy their ship&gears so what if we can sell our engineered ship and gears at a price...

    Fleet Carriers - Cheaper Modular Base Carrier

    I realize Fleet Carriers just got released and they are designed to be an end game item, but they can be mid to end game. Rather than starting at 5billion, with all the landing pads and storage and 500LY FSD, have the carriers as a modular frame that start with a smaller FSD, and start with...

    FC - Dark Mode

    Dark Mode allows a play to go silent in the game. (may help in reducing server load) No commodity trading is available in this mode. No other players can see your FC using any tools (web included) in this mode. You are off the grid to all intents and purposes as this will allow the player to...

    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...

    Crew Wages should take a percentage of net income rather than gross income.

    Fair warning, this is a detailed post with lots of math, numbers, and economic theory. Please insure you at least know the economic terms of "net", "gross", "profit margin", and "markup" before proceeding. Having a crew member while trying to run a fleet carrier as an import/export style...

    Can't sell LTD at Fleet Carriers

    I've been sitting here with my cargo hold full of diamonds for 2 days now, checking Inara for prices, flying back and forth. For some reason, I can't sell LTDs. It either prompts me with a selling screen, which does absolutely nothing when I click sell or simply have no option to sell to that FC...

    Semi-Unpopular opinion: Fleet Carriers should affect bgs.

    Off the bat fleet carriers are pretty useful tools in the game. But I think there is definitely more potential to be useful and add a new layer of strategy and emergent gameplay. The idea would be to add a "faction office" much similar to the redemption office. And with that you would be able...

    What's the bare minimum?

    I'm closing in on being able to afford a fleet carrier, thanks to both hard work (hauling Tritium) and the VERY GENEROUS DONATIONS of other CMDRs (see my signature). I should reach 5 billion this week. My original goal was to acquire 6 billion before buying a FC, to ensure I have the extra...

    Fleet Carrier and Cartography Data. Reasoning for higher payouts...

    As fleet carriers are effectively mobile travelling stations, and to aid their future navigation. It’s in the best interests of that fleet carrier and its crew to amass as much cartography data as possible. (For realistic pretend gameplay reasons) Isn’t it a good idea for the FC’s cartography...

    General Fleet carrier Quality Of Life Improvements??

    Just a couple thoughts. Could we have local system news, bounty boards and traffic reports in our fleets? Could we also have FCs be included in the traffic report. Is there anyway we could have more direct control over our perms for our commodity markets? Like maybe even only allowing access to...

    General Various Quality of Life Improvements

    Fleet Carrier Route Tracker?

    Hello CMDRs, I was wondering is there a website that tracks fleet carriers and what routes they're taking, e.i. from Sol to Colonia and back or anything like that. P.S. Sorry if I'm posting this in the wrong place; this is my first time using the forums here. Thanks in advance!

    Carrier Bridge View Immersion Request

    Hi FDev, I have a simple request. While docked at my carrier, I'd like the option to switch from the cockpit of my ship to sitting in the captain's chair on the bridge of the carrier. Maybe you can use the multi-crew system to let a few others commanders sit on the bridge with you if you...

    You cannot buy drones on a carrier ship

    Good day to all! Installed the Extended Service services (arsenal, repairs, refueling) on the carrier ship. But in the advanced service menu I can’t buy drones ... He writes that there are not enough loans, although money> 1M loans. Tell me, has anyone encountered such a problem?

    Fleet Carrier Mining Facility Needed

    It seems real immersion breaking (and frankly laughable) that you have to pay upkeep to support this "virtual crew", but they can't be bothered to fuel your ship. You're a multi billionaire that has the wealth to purchased a gigantic moving station, but you can't pay for mining facilities...

    Redemption Office and Universal Cartographics services on Fleet Carrier are weird

    Newcomer / Intro How do I hitch a ride on a Fleet Carrier?

    How do mere mortals hitch a ride? How do I find out which Fleet Carriers are travelling to a particular destination, what the destination is and when the FC leaves? And once I’ve found all of that, so I just dock with the FC and wait?
