    Drone Limpet Vehicles.

    I dont know if it has been mentioned before but a limpet drone you can drive would make so much sense in this came. Here is the idea my friend and i came up with. Hey ED! Also it moves cargo (slower rate) when doing missions at a smaller Starport. Small size Abrasion blaster only 10-20 cargo...

    Limpets and limpet controllers, turn the table.

    As now there is only one type of limpet.. you get in the hardware store in most stations and its pretty cheap. They can repair, probe, transfer fuel and so on and on .. To control this litte buggers you need a computer that takes up a huge part of your ship, depending on what tasks the limpet...

    Prospectors crash into ship too easily

    In 3.3, prospector limpets gained a collision box, making it possible for them to collide with objects like your own ship on launch. This, in itself, is fine. Before 3.3, you could have the limpet phase through the canopy easily by just looking down after firing them, and that did look weird...

    Turn off proximity warning for limpets

    The proximity warning would be an useful and immersive tool for miners to try and avoid bumping into things outside of their field of vision, however, collector limpets constantly trigger the warning when near. This makes the proximity warning useless for its actual purpose, as it's active...

    Collector limpets

    Oh how wonderful it would be if limpets could return cargo from planet surface to ship instead of doing a faceplant into the dirt...especially when the SRV holds a lousy 2 packages... is this not the year 3304? We can travel 300x light speed but limpets are mentally retarded!!! I applaud...

    Limpet Drones counts as cargo

    Something i just realised while playing the beta (so i dont exactly know if this is a beta or a general problem): Limpet drones counts as cargo. This is 1. unrealistic, because no other "ammo" works like this 2. is a big problem because you can't just switch to a different ship with smaller...

    Limpet Module Bay – still incoming?

    Pardon me for anything I've missed, but I remember that a while ago (was it the start of Beyond?) there was official word that a combined Limpet Module Bay was being considered. It sounded pretty positive. Have we heard anything since, and how does everyone feel about the idea now? Does the...

    Is repairing modules on-the-fly with any Repair Limpet working?

    I, with Explorer ambitions, am far from civilized space, equipped with a Repair Limpet. It seems it repairs Hull Damage but my modules are still in 97-99% health and the limpet doesn't repair them, even after reboot. Is it up only to the too-less-damage? (I've read somewhere that it need min...

    Outfitting Idea to Add More Module Space - Module Racks

    There are a lot of small sized modules and more are on there way by the sounds of it in Beyond Chapter 4. I'm talking about the scanners and limpet systems. It's a shame to imagine a size 1 scanner taking up a whole size 3 or 4 slot especially when you can get 16 tonnes in the same space. I've...

    A small Idea for an repair limpet & AMFU Interaction

    So most explorers were there maybe at some point. Right now noone can stay truley independent in the black. All can be maintanced except the Power Plant. So here is my suggestion: Make Repair Limpets not expire on Full Hull, but wait until the Timter has run out/the ship takes damage. While...

    Material Collector Limpet Controller

    Gathering mats takes ages even with multiple controllers, it really breaks the game flow and simply consists of waiting and waiting again. In my eyes it does not anything to the game except more time consumption. My suggestion: Give us a material collector limpet controller, which has around...

    Electronics Module & Pooled Limpet Storage

    Two somewhat related issues: I'm not a big fan of "splitters" in general, as I think the various combinations of internal modules help to give different ships some individual "character". But the shortage of size 1 slots, in particular, is dire. If you want to go exploring in an Imperial...

    Limpet Controller Unification

    Good evening... The suggestion is quite simple: - Instead of having different controllers for each limpet drone kind, we use the same device for all of them and we would carry various types on our cargo hold... this would enable players to spare module slots and be able to make better use of...

    Limpets are Awful - Loot Collection Woes

    After doing lots of material scouring about the cosmos for every bit of goodness I can use for synthesis, as well as engineering it occurred to me. LIMPETS ARE AWFUL! It often takes longer to collect loot with limpets than it takes to liberate them from either the bum of an Anaconda, or a...

    Request: Filter functions for collector limpets, no illegals, materials only etc.

    Basically I guess the title says it all. :-D Could we have some simple way of programming our collectors so that they, for example, collect only materials at a combat zone and no cargo as those dropped by wanted ships are mostly stolen? Perhaps put it in the functions panel and include some...

    Pirate NPCs recognizing trolling when dropping Limpets

    Currently, Pirates will try to loot valuable cargo from your ship if it has a high enough value. That value floor is pretty low, with responses from holding certain low value items along the lines of, "You're not worth my time", and responses from holding only Limpets being the same as responses...

    The Trouble With Limpets

    So, I think it might be time to rethink how limpets work in the game. Currently (and in the beta) there are Prospector limpet Collector limpet Hatchbreaker limpet Repair limpet Recon limpet Fuel transfer limpet Decontamination limpet Research limpet It's starting to get a bit out of control...

    New Module - Tugboat Drones

    Hello, everyone. I got this idea recently from both playing Fractured Space, and watching the Discovery Scanner episode about the Thargon Swarm. In some combat scenarios, it might be useful to limit the mobility of an enemy, slowing their speed in all 6 degrees of motion, and in others, to...

    Those damn research limpets!

    G'day, Ive read (and posted) other posts about research limpet issues but I have just encountered a new one. This time the limpet was collected in the cargo bay successfully, a big blue message popped up telling me that the cargo had been acquired. Success! 2.3.03 has fixed the problem... BUT...
