    Refueling Fleet Carriers

    I hope that refueling fleet carriers uses actual fuel, albeit a LOT of fuel. Think of it - we could become 'oil tankers' in Elite! I can picture my Type-7 (love that ship) loaded with extra fuel tanks and a huge scoop, loading up on fuel at the local star, ferrying it to the fleet carrier, rinse...

    Fuel tank engineering

    This is a repost I posted in the wrong section before. Apologies. I'll keep it concise. The adjectives and nouns I would ask the community for suggestions. But I think I have some cool names and stuff to help describe them. Right now I have considered three different fuel tank engineering...

    *Sending* modules to stations and more...

    Hey guys. Happy New Year! I've been thinking of my "bucket list" for 2019 and though I say it myself, it is a modest list. Nevertheless, these changes could help a lot of Commanders in very significant ways. The first is the ability to send modules to stations. I don't mind the costs...

    Change a Beluga internal to class 7 - scooping is so slow!

    As the title says, while the last update was an absolutely excellent and very required buff for Saud Kruger ships, there is one major flaw that is still unresolved... and that is that the Beluga scoops very, very slowly. It has 3 class 6 slots, which while quite good for everything else it...

    Proposed Improvements to the Limpet Mechanic

    Limpets as currently implemented are a vital mechanic for effective completion of game missions. As currently implemented, only a few limpet types are necessary on a regular basis. Other limpet types are not as critical and are widely ignored because of the disproportionate load they put on ship...

    Fuel efficiency in Elite Dangerous

    Greetings, commanders. One of my wing-mates recently attempted the record distance from Sol, so we got talking about fuel efficiency and max distance. I saw the thread that listed Cmdr. Mcgrew's 65,804.4 LY accomplishment. I began to wonder if my little DBX could ever go that far. So, I started...

    Engineers Fuel Scoops - what Shielding does for Fuel Scoops?

    This must have been asked before, but I can't see it ... Can anybody tell me what Shielding does for Fuel Scoops?

    Make Fuel scooping fun again

    When I first discovered the fuel scoop years back, I thought "Awesome! Never pay for fuel again!" I immediately went to circle a nearby star and watch my fuel gauge rise while keeping an eye on my heat and maintaining a steady speed so I didn't fall out of the corona or take heat damage. That...

    Last chance fuel scoop icon/display.

    I've just begun doing exploration using a Dolphin (for passenger missions as well) and I have noticed that when I enter my galaxy map it will tell me "last chance to fuel scoop" on my plotted route. I find it helpful, but not helpful enough, since I am running with a 3c fuel tank (8T) trying to...

    Please can we have a 32t fuel tank for the Chieftain?

    Please could we have the fuel tank in the Chieftain increase to a 32t as standard, as this would make this ship just that bit more perfect for those of us who would like to do more than just combat. I for instance would like to use this tough ship as a secure fast transport for passengers, and...

    are the cargo rewards for a lot of non-cargo missions just there to annoy us?

    Or is there a purpose? [EDIT: I see now, it was engineering commodities - before I started playing again this January...] Every mission running ship now has to waste a slot for an otherwise useless 4 ton cargo rack. On ships with few slots, that puts a serious crimp in your fitting...

    Hyperspace and fuel scooping

    Would it be possible to set the FSD to exit out of hyper space a different distances from the main star? For instance if your in a medium ship jumping 40ly. You wont need to fuel scoop so if you could set the FSD to exit further away from the main star as to line up with the next system and...

    NEED HELP URGENTLY!!

    To Whom It May Concern, Commanders, I require assistance in the Wolf 882 system. Due to a miscalculation of fuel, I am now trapped in the Wolf 882 system. To whoever reads this, please come urgently!! Regards, CMDR_JINPegi. [noob]:)[noob]:)

    Fuel Scoop QoL Change

    Problem:When fuel scooping you usually have little information of how close you are to the stars you're scooping from beside from experience of Heat % and Scoop rate, the radar and/or selecting the star itself does give you some idea it's still rather vague and not as detailed and clear as I'd...

    Have Optional Fuel Tanks increase Jump Range by boosting max fuel per jump

    I have been playing only for a few months, so I apologize in advance if this isn't a new idea for the veterans here. One thing I noticed in the game, is how some things like some ships (#freekeely) or components seem to miss their purpose. Optional Internal Fuel Tanks (and to some extent...

    Fuel Scoop engineer upgrades useless?

    Am I the only one thinking that the only available Fuel Scoop engineer upgrade - "Integrity" is completely useless? I didn't notice this upgrade until recently I saw it and got excited ( Fuel scoop is among few things you absolutely must have to explore the galaxy properly, and I'm the explorer...

    Proposal for DDF members to meet in the Real World

    I tried to suggest this on the KS comments page but it disappeared off the bottom of the page almost before I'd finished typing, so I'll try again here. I don't know if anybody has done tihs yet and if they have then my apologies and I'll shut up about it. I'm suggesting that those of us that...
