    The GalNet Archive - 10th Sep 3306 - ?

    Welcome to The GalNet Archive. This is as much for my own use as anybody else's, I know they're elsewhere but they don't seem to be on one easy accessible page so I'm putting them on here for future reference. This Archive only covers from the return of GalNet on 10th September 3306 (2020). I...

    Unhumorous Calamity is the Job

    “You really screwed it, didn’t you, skip?” Chucho the mechanic said. Commander Neulen replied with a dirty look. “Well,” Chucho continued, “I thought it was pretty funny. Bad timing, and the delivery could have been better, but overall a solid joke. Very you. Shows your trademark deficiency in...

    Community Event / Creation Turning the Wheel

    (IN UNIVERSE) My fellow commanders. It is with a heavy heart that I must come before you today to put an end to the lies and corruption within the Pilots’ Federation. This once-venerable institution has been infiltrated and subjugated by a nefarious group of elites known only as ‘The Club’. For...

    An open letter to Frontier Development

    I am a huge fan of your company and devoted player of your game, as well as purchaser of many, many paint jobs. I am the co-host of a podcast every week that is dedicated to the amazing thing that you have created. I love so many aspects of it that were I to fully unpack that statement it would...

    Why do so many ED Characters not have an Image?

    Why do so many important characters of the ED lore not have a profile image yet? Is Frontier too lazy to permit an artist to draw 2D artwork? Or will they add 3D models with the next expansion? There are so many things of the lore that lack any visual reference.

    Why doesn't Frontier publish Elite Dangerous Comics?

    ED has dozens of interesting characters in the galaxy. The most popular ones are the movers and shakers in Powerplay. Yet we only have 1 portrait per Powerplay leader. Most are faceless individuals in GalNet news. There are thousands of people who would love to know more about their favorite ED...

    A simple fix to (maybe) save Galnet

    It’s easy. Galnet just needs to draw a clear distinction between in game events and pure flavor material. This is how you do it: FDev makes two categories of articles. TOP STORIES OTHER NEWS TOP STORIES would be reserved only for events with in-game ramifications. Top stories would always...

    Thargoids, Raxxla, Dark Wheel, and how they are connected...maybe.

    (The following suggestion is a fictitious use of fictitious places and characters to create a fictitious story that could fictitiously connect fictitious events in a fictitiously believable way. Although fictitious places and people are mentioned in this fictitious suggestion, they are used in a...

    Player Faction application random rejection

    I'm just writing this because I really don't know what to do next. I govern a player faction "Arms of the Panda" that is currently in a jam (because of my poor choice for a starter system). So I asked Frontier if it would be possible to move it to another system. Answer is no. When a faction is...

    Why anyone want to be a pirate in Elite universe?

    One thing that has been bugging me since i started playing this game is how immersion breaking piracy is in this game. Why does anyone turn pirate (aside from us players that do it for fun)? Getting a bounty flag us for destruction, by anyone (we are lucky stations don't open fire on us). Stolen...

    Lore and history with Galnet Audio ?

    Would it be possible and easy to add a feature where Galnet audio could be set to read out Elite dangerous lore while flying around. It would be a great way for players to get up to speed on all the major lore and history of the game. If its just a matter of adding text to the game it should...

    GalNet: Imperial Slaves are not Slaves & other Lore issues; Elite-opedia needed

    GalNet has recently published articles that contradict the lore that has been both officially established or implied by previous statements. In a recent GalNet article, for instance, entitled 'Anti-Slavery Organisations Unite' Imperial Slaves were again confused with slaves. In this interview in...

    [Lore] General Questions

    So I've been writing a short story during my free time about elite dangerous and I have many questions regarding the universe. Is it normal to run into a natural earth born person? How do commanders get their first Ship? What is life on a ship Like? Do they have food and water and latrines...

    Galaxy Map and additional Lore

    No I'm not crashing when I open the Galaxy Map, at least not yet. I love delving into the lore and stories that are woven in games and Elite has one mighty story to tell. I've been trying to delve into the lore and I understand a lot of it is player driven I keep hearing "the Bubble" being...

    Immersion and Why Elite FEELS so...Gamey

    Let me preface this by saying (for the haters) that I keep coming here because I LOVE Elite's core game play. Flying the ships. Combat. Buzzing bad guys in asteroid fields and rings. Its visceral and real and heady, and I cannot get enough of small ship combat in tight quarters, with obstacles...

    Finding The Roadster

    o7 Frontier and the ED community, I was wondering if it were possible to add the Tesla roadster in the game and whoever is able to find it is able to get the mini Tesla roadster as a dashboard figurine? Kind of an achievement to show off to people. Not sure if many people know this but they...

    Looking for Zemina Toraval pilots on Xbox

    Hopping this is the right thread, I try to set up a wing supporting Zemina Torval for Xbox players. As setting up a wing on Xbox is much more difficult than on PC (no Discord, Trello, Rediit et al), I wanted to try to find some cmdrs over here. It seems to be the first wing pledgeg to Torval...

    The potential political philosophy of the Empire

    The Empire seems to be a mixture of the elements of the British Empire (ship names), Roman Empire (Senators, Patrons, Clients) and the Middle Ages (Imperial Navy Ranks). Yet it has a political system that has fundamentally novel ideas, not seen in those eras and it is also strange why they would...

    Cheap way to improve mission system.

    When I started to play ED, I dreamed that space legs, atmosphere landings, Han Solo style adventures will be right behind the corner. I desire this freedom, a whole world without limitations to live in and explore. Thanks to this forum, I now know exact reasons, why these features are not there...
