    ACHIEVEMENTS!! (are needed)

    Greetings Spacers, My advice for the dev team is simply -- This game needs achievements on Steam! One of the main criticisms of E.D. is lack of 'structure', lack of 'story', new players feeling like they 'do not know what to do'. Now I can play the game and roleplay a whole fun time in my...

    Planet Zoo UI/UX and Gameplay Improvements

    Hello, my name is Chris, I'm a game designer from Poland and a big fan of Planet Zoo recently. Although I grew very fond of the game, there are some things that I find need fixing and I'd like to share some of my suggestions. I hope Frontiers' devs will seriously consider introducing at least...

    General Separate CG leaderboard for fleet carriers

    I've participated in the last few CGs after a bit of a hiatus in Elite, and boy are they unappealing now. I used to love trying to see how high I can get on the leaderboards for contributions, and its a great way to grind out additional rank and credits while I do it, but honestly Fleet Carriers...

    Best ideas to improve animal/guest behavior, realism, and player immersion

    I've been seeing a lot of great suggestions on these forums on how to improve these assets. I decided to make a "mega-thread" where people can suggest improvements that they think are the most feasible, and/or would be the best to prioritize for improving the immersion. Sometimes a little goes a...

    UI and Gameplay thoughts

    First Id like to say this is my favorite game. It got me through some tough times in my life. With that said I'd like to post some thoughts I've had and seen others have as well. In the future here's hoping these get addressed at some point. I believe a lot of immersion can be enhanced by...

    Randomized Animations

    So I love how you can add a lot of props and "manipulate" them to change the way they look, that can add a more realistic look our creations. There is this just one thing I noticed since I started playing, even though there are a lot of animations for the animals, I feel like they kinda get...

    General Various Quality of Life Improvements

    I've been playing around with my carrier, trying to figure out how to best align it with various play styles. Personally, I absolutely love the Fleet Carrier and the dynamic that it brings to the game. Gives the game a fresh feel which was a very long time overdue. Whilst I am thoroughly...

    Lost 30+ mill due to a bug that shouldn't exist.

    Was playing in multi-crew with two of my friends, we spent hours fighting pirates for a mission that had a head count of 65 and a reward of a bit over 30 mill. We suffered through: multiple multi-crew disconnects, U.I. bugs, control lockups and horrid audio bugs with the fighters to get through...

    Next evolution of JWE - Much need improvements

    I think this review here pretty much sums it up perfectly: Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=avgNJsaMYEk I haven't played JWE in a little while now after last getting super frustrated with dinosaur behavior and severely limited creative freedom in the game. I bought the deluxe edition...

    Some Fleet carrier suggestions:

    I think that most of the mechanics behind fleet carriers are just about right (other than the upkeep), and nothing really needs to change in terms of how the core mechanics work, at least nothing that wouldn't require a massive rework of the entire system. However, most, if not all of the...

    Some suggestions for the game

    So as much as I love this game, there are a few things that I think would be great if they changed or added. 1. Staff training - it would be so great if we could multi select staff members and train all at once instead of clicking every single one. 2. Paths - have the option to have squared...

    Some QoL-Improvements

    Very nice update, has fixed a lot of issues and has many Quality of Life improvements, especially for Sandbox. Here are some more suggestions: -Employees: The ability to choose multiple workers and "upgrade" them at the same time, and also the ability to synchronize the wages similar to prices...

    Please read! Big fan but I need a few upgrades/changes

    I will say that I am extremely excited about this game and I have spent quite a bit playing it and look forward to future updates, changes and additions. Thank you so much for reading my suggestions. Thank you so much for this wonderful game! We need a first person mode to experience the zoo...

    Quality of Life Improvements Wishlist

    I'll be updating this thread as I go. Trying to focus on QOL improvements alone since there seem to be plenty of threads for other stuff. Listing literally everything I can think of because I know many of these won't be implementable, especially by release. Please fix: Don't have to keep...

    New and better cosmetics overall. Plz?

    I have a love/hate relationship with paintjobs. You see, most of them are pure garbage, basic recoloring of the entire ship, no personality, no cool visuals, nothing that would make me shell out money at my computer screen, but on the other hand there are a few that rock some different patterns...

    My ideas for PlanCo - Part I : Management

    Hi there, after a long time, I'd like to post some ideas and suggestions again for one of the best games I have installed on my PC (ok, there're just two games: PlanCo and RCT3 ;) ). I'm really surprised that Frontier will finally give us the opportunity to import own created CSOs into the...

    Idea!

    I had an idea that’d be pretty cool, I think. What if when you enter the mail slot of stations like orbis stations instead of the regular scanner what if it was like a wave scanner and you can see your ship and other ships in detail and it highlighted your landing pad. Idk, that just sounds cool...

    Stoyben's 4 step plan to make Elite Dangerous again (Major Suggestions)

    This post is on behalf on a friend from many Discords Stoyben. He's not much of a forum dweller so on his behalf I will convey his ideas here. While we all look forward to the major improvements coming in future updates, some of the ideas here would work well with the game, and are worth...

    WATERRIDE IMPROVEMENTS (sugestions)

    Planet Coaster has Coasters (allthough they may increase in variety), Flatrides (allthough they may increase in quantity), Tracked rides (allthough a cable car is not jet there but probably on the 'to do list') and Waterrides.. But they really need improvement! And it would be great to have more...

    Several small quality-of-life improvements to improve the experience

    After playing Elite for 450 hours I have some suggestions on several small ‘quality of life’ improvements that I think would make the game much better and the ‘grind’ aspect a great deal more bearable. I am sorry if some of these have already been suggested but hopefully most commanders will...

    Expanding the scope of the Thargoids

    Right now the Thargoids feel too detached from the normal flow of the game and hardly feel like an alien invasion that has all of humanity concerned. I think that the effects of the Thargoid invasion should be felt throughout the human bubble and not just be confined to optional fights in some...

    Space Bars and Space Legs

    I want Space bar/cantina button available as an option in the Starport Services menu. Through this my holo-me character could be teleported direct to the space bar within the starport to conduct a variety of activities and make the whole experience more immersive and interesting. This could...

    QOL improving planet landings and SRVs

    A, Ships still land too far away when recalled B, Ships cant land even in flat spots (improvement needed to compensate) C, SRVs in both high G worlds and non High G worlds drive far to skittishly almost impossible to drive at speeds. D, Not enough cargo on the ground (as well as space pre...

    Crew/Multicrew Suggestions/Improvements

    Greetings Commanders! (and hopefully at least one developer - fingers crossed) I'm going to be posting a few threads today of suggestions I have made on Reddit and Twitter, as I've been advised that this is where they're most likely to be seen. I'm going to try to be as concise as possible as I...

    Improving the Crime and Punishment system

    I believe that a lot of the attendant frustration with the new Crime and Punishment system arises because of the oversensitive nature of the system. This creates a situation where the system, while having some impact on PvP, has a large unintended and frustrating impact on innocent activities...

    Quality of life improvements

    PROPOSED CHANGES TO MATERIAL COLLECTING

    A smugglers life for me: Thoughts on improvements to smuggling

    My first introduction to smuggling in Elite Dangerous was the Robigo Mines slave runs. At the time I was using my cobra mkiii to ship 24T of slaves back to the bubble as fast as possible while avoiding NPCs at almost every star and speeding away as fast as an unmodified cobra mkiii could when I...

    Some improvements for the next update :)

    Just a few ideas I had for the next patch release. When passing light speed in super cruise, a brief rainbow or prism effect on or around all bright objects, red to violet when accelerating, violet to red when decelerating, just a small red shift/blue shift effect to prettify the super cruise...
