    Newcomer / Intro Newbie here and asking for advice

    Hello there, I am a newbie Commander here. Although I had been playing for some very sporadic time, I always ended up frustrated because I always ended blew up. Now that I have returned I decided to ask for some advice. Currently, I have a Vulture without engineering (I am in the process)...

    DLC Idea: Avian Expansion Pack

    Disclaimer: I don't regularly monitor Planet Zoo-related forums, so my apologies in advance for mentioning anything that has already been discussed publicly. That being said, I wanted to share my ideas about what I think would be an ideal addition to the Planet Zoo experience: an avian-themed...

    ED - Atmospheric flight fan-made (Unreal engine 4)

You will be available: Ship: Eagle One island for...

    Frontier Pilot Simulator

    Frontier Pilot Simulator This is one of the games I've been looking forward to the most. A ship flying game, set in another planet, in which the gameplay emphasis in on the actual flying itself. It's still in early access but it's very playable already. You have detailed flight models...

    IL-2 1946

    This any good? Does it still have a player base? Really want a new flight game to play, but BoS is a little expensive right now considering I'm in the tattoo process.

    Accessibility Request: Audible COmpass

    Hi All, I've been trying to find a reasonable way to fly towards targets, via supercruise or otherwise, and it seems most of the information about the direction to go is conveyed visually. SOme sort of audible compass indication would be very much appreciated, so I could get a sense of whether...

    A balance suggestion that could encourage players to be better pilots

    Hi So this isn't my idea. I've heard other people mention it. Just wanted to discuss it somewhere Fdev might be watching. My proposition is to add a size 1 module to all ships. In that slot goes the flight assist module. This module can be removed and something else put there or kept. The...

    Elite Dangerous' flight model is severely flawed

    I have to say that the absolute biggest offender in this game is the flight mechanics; they are so severely broken and boring. I love simulation but above all a video game should be fun.. that is the first principle of why people play them and can escape in video game worlds. Otherwise, people...

    Blackouts (high G) don't dim the screen?

    Recently returned to ED. I've been doing this and that and noticed hard turns in glide would occasionally make me lose control (dead stick) for a few seconds once in a while on hard turns. Friend mentioned blackout (and red outs) and how they dim (visually) his screen, visually showing the...

    Immersive Comms (Flight Assist Off)

    u/an_angry_gippo (on reddit) posted a great concept of radio chatter in a conflict zone that really adds to the sense of immersion. This inspired me to share an inside look into the highly professional comms chatter between members of the Screaming Eagles during a recent wing fight... Link to...

    The most Fundamental Flaw of Elite - And How to Fix It

    Greetings all. I am going to keep this polite and constructive, and as brief as is possible in order to make my point. So bear with me: I came to Elite to fly spaceships. Fly spaceships. Not outfit them. Not customize them. Not paint them. Not use them to generate screen shots. To FLY them...

    Evasion (Flight Assist Off)

    A few weeks ago, Commander Yamato2012 posted his combat footage from the PvP Hub finals. It was an incredible piece of flying that reminded me that I still have a long way to go in order to get the most out of my ship. Hence, I did what every good pilot does: I try to blatantly rip off his...

    Dances with Thargoids (Flight Assist Off)

    Several months ago, in my first contact with Thargoids, they attacked my Diamondback Explorer after a misunderstanding of their (in hindsight) rather obvious threat display-- we assumed it was their way of showing off their newly-purchased red lighting effects. In any case, in the weeks...

    How the turrets in space/jousting gameplay may be fixed (and possibly fix permaboosting)

    It seems that in spite of the Devs' best efforts to the contrary, PvE in the game often descents into a very "turrets in space" style of gameplay, where 2 ships just slug fire at each other while trying to shield tank the damage taken. I believe that this has a deterimental impact on the overall...

    make flight control honest

    We all know that. Just uncoupled from the platform. The flight control says "exit corridor is clear" and you just find a big Beluga in the middle of the mailslot. Because "exit corridor is clear" was just a lie. Why don't they just say "exit corridor is blocked. hold position for 5 Seconds…...

    On February 17, 3304, the Momoirent System came under attack by a squadron of the Screaming Eagles piracy group. Over the course of several hours, Traders from all over the bubble found themselves at the mercy of these intrepid pirates. All seemed lost until the Saviour of Momoirent appeared...

    SHIP JUMP RANGES

    I think that all FSD ranges should be doubled, reason is in most ships when armed jump range drops to 20ly, and if exploring in an ASP would be able to get 80ly. I spent 2 of my nights jumping to travel the 5000ly for engineer unlock, I work in the daytime, I would explore more if it wasn't so...

    Flight Recorder

    This could be thought of as a log of positions of ships and objects that could be activated and then played back (would be an extra feature of the Ship Camera so that you can go back and record your footage later) Viewing footage would have to be done whilst either docked or from the main menu...

    Asking for a more customer friendly downtime implementation

    Just had a horrible experience with the last downtime. The following suggestions would alleviate the problems: - With flight times to some stations far exceeding 30 minutes, a 30 minute warning is simply not enough. Solution: Give a 1, 2 or 3 hour warning - One may have gone to the bathroom or...

    Flight Assist Off

    I have hear a lot about people toggling flight assist on and off during combat. Some even purport to fly FAOFF all the time ( which I'm not sure I believe ) I have tried FAOFF mid combat and while it does indeed let me turn and face an agressor while travelling in the same direction I don't...

    Flight Traffic Controller play at attacked stations. Come join!

    I've kinda had a dream of playing as flight control for a station. If I could make a separate game in the ED franchise that connected it would be one that allowed people to play as flight controllers and manage folks at the busiest stations in the game.That's not going to happen anytime soon and...

    PvP Letter of Marque - Powerplay Mercenary Work (Flight Assist Off)

    Not long ago, the Screaming Eagles were offered a "Letter of Marque" from an Imperial group to get involved in a bit of Powerplay activity. Tonight, we took our first engagement as I joined two of their members for a fun skirmish in the Miroman system. Great fight to pilots on all sides. o7...

    Hi, Please, we really need an option to enable "Relative Mouse Control" in "Flight Assist Off". Yes, it has already been requested and still not added to the game 3 years later, but it's an absolute necessity. Simple : Flight Assist On : Normal (Actual) Mouse Control Flight Assist Off ...
