    What mode of planetary transport do people on Earth-likes use?

    Is this mentioned in any official lore? if not what do you believe would be the most logical mode of transport the average joe would use to travel in the cities of earth like words? would cars still exist?

    Lore of Thargoid Meta-Alloys addenda

    What are Thargoid Meta Alloys? I often feel like the description above of meta alloys is incomplete, based only on what contemporary Humanity has tested and understands about these meta alloy materials. Recently I had ideas about their true potential. The human uses of these alloys which are...

    Question about ALD.

    So multiple groups in-universe dislike Arissa Lavigny-Duval because she's non- traditional and they want a return to good old traditional values. The Emperor's Dawn and pre-Hadrian Nova Imperium were big on this. That's all well and good. ... but what about Arissa is so destructive to Imperial...

    How much do you think the average salary of the average citizen is?

    how much do you think the ordinary middle-class citizen earns per year (in credits)? i think the lore somewhere mentions that 1cr = $50, and also that the average middle-class family can afford a sidewinder. but if we take the current us average of $56,310 and convert it to credits we get...

    Elite Dangerous's core lore person isn't Michael Brookes .. examining the breadcrumb trail of Allen Stroud

    This is a repost from Independent Raxxla Hunters discord where someone had mentioned the lore stream and the fact there might be Raxxla references elsewhere. This is my response because it is has become increasingly evident Michael Brookes while instrumental in building the Elite Dangerous...

    Newcomer / Intro The Dark Wheel *SPOILER* (kinda)

    The ingame lore describes TDW as some mystical/unknown association noone knows where to find and gives a hint regarding a certain system which I haven't figured out yet. But I did find TDW as a faction So my question is, how does that fit into the picture? Should I get friendly with those guys...

    Odyssey, Game Design, and the BGS: A Little Opinion Piece on the Potential of Odyssey and Where it Went Wrong

    Heyo everyone. Hope you’re doing well. I know Odyssey criticism has been done to death at this point and most of what needs to be said has already been said, but I still think that there’s a lot that hasn’t been fully addressed on the forums and I’ve wanted to talk about my opinions on Odyssey...

    A Outpost request with new Function/Lore

    I think it's a nice idea to build a outpost near colonia, where all kind of slaves can be get their freedom, because so we can colonize more in the galaxy. I have 100.000.000 Cr on my bank it is not much but a good start for colonize and freedom. What do you all think about it, it is kinda...

    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.
  20. Cosmo

    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...

    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...

Its visceral and real and heady, and I cannot get enough of small ship combat in tight quarters, with obstacles...

    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.
