    Let the community design missions

    So, I had an idea to help expand the mission variety and complexity in game without taxing the developers too much. The idea is for the developers to release a "mission maker" program/app for the community to create mission palettes. The app should allow a user to create an objective, a mission...

    Potential Bug in Mission System

    I've been running missions for [classified], and I've noticed something strange. I took a bunch of passenger missions with the purpose of gaining rep with a new faction, and when I started turning them in, at some point I was being offered more INF that I originally remembered the missions being...

    Similar missions for all players

    Hi all, just played a round of Elite yesterday with my wife and we thought about doing some easy missions. However we could not find one single (normal - not wing) mission we wanted to do where both of us had the same "target". In the past usually the mission board for all players in my...

    General Module haulers

    There is an invisible population in the galaxy. They shuttle ships and modules between stations. They do a poor job supplying Colonia with certain type of modules though. So there is a niche market. However, they are the only ones who can load modules or ships in their cargo hold. I must...

    Private Exploration Missions

    Just an idea, How about minor factions offering missions for you to explore a certain set of set systems, and offer you the usual variation of rewards in return? People like me, who don't particularly "wander" around deep space, like a nice destination to go to. And it'd be nice if I could...

    Newcomer / Intro Rep rank up missions

    So I am currently grinding my fed ranks but I have come across an issue with one of the rank up missions (yes I know I can just skip the mission or not take it). I have seen this though quite often with a few promotion missions. The promotion mission started at an outpost specifically Williams...

    Add "Plot Course" Button on Mission Transaction Screen

    When you look at the left panel, select Transactions, and then pick a Mission, there's room for one more button - PLOT COURSE. This would be wonderful! Insert it right before "Open Galaxy Map", since this is why I click that button in the first place, to plot a course. ps - Not everyone is on a...

    FSS and finding missions.

    Unless I'm missing something, very possible, you now have to use the FSS to locate the bodies for land based missions? I like this idea, but it is a bit of a ball ache. Are there any tips for finding the mission locations faster? I'm not used to the scanner yet and I'm sure I'll get quicker...

    Advanced Discovery Scanner - Planetary Mission Issues

    Now, is it just me (because it certainly could be), or have things changed in the game? Coming back to EDH after a little time away, I slapped my Corvette into port, next to my Cutter & Anaconda and boarded my favourite ship; my Diamondback Explorer. Don't ask why, I just like it. Anyhow, I use...

    Finding the POI during a planetary scan mission

    I may have missed something, but before Beyond, finding a POI during a planetary scan mission, a scan with the discovery scanner caused the planet in question to be marked in the location table. But now, such mark doesn't show up any longer, neither when scanning the nav beacon. How are we...

    Exploration Data Black Box

    So many explorers play in private or solo mode for fear of losing many days worth of game play in one accident, or being destroyed by another ship. As more of an intensive for explorers to play in Open I propose the following. I suggest adding a Black Box that CMDR's can interact with. A...

    Why should anyone be fighting Thargoids?

    Now, before you scream at me, the title is a rhetorical question, but i want to start a discussion, a pretty important one i think. So let's be real... for one of the most dangerous activities in the game other than PVP, we're really not being rewarded anything for resisting the Thargoids. I...

    Trying to get allied with 'The Shunned' minor faction

    "The Shunned" is a non-player faction located in the asteroid base "New Growth" in the pencil nebula. This minor faction controls no stations, has no normal missions available , but strangely has passenger missions. However these missions are reputation locked, and therefore are not available...

    MISSION SUBDIVIDED INTO MENUS/CATEGORIES?

    I think it would be a good idea to have the Missions subdivided into categories. So, say you wanted DELIVERY missions you'd go to the Mission Menu and a submenu would be DELIVERIES, choosing that would then list just delivery missions to choose from, and so on with Massacre Missions, Sourcing...

    Show the Station and System for missions in the Transactions tab

    It would be great if the station and system names were listed on mission summaries in the Transactions tab. When scouring the mission boards for missions where I'm already going to, it can be hard to remember where all my current missions are for. You have to go into each mission on the...

    CQC Scenario and BGS integration (Or f2p?)

    I think a great way to expand upon CQC and the idea of 'telepresence' is the ability to join a scenario/war/skirmish/combat zone as a sort of 'hired' pilot for one of the factions. From the mission board of a station in war or neighbouring system there could be a call to pilots to takeover...

    New Mission Types for use in the new Thargoid incursion system states

    I've come up with some ideas for missions which would allow the less combative commanders to contribute to kicking the Thargoids out of a system suffering from incursion. I originally posted a version of this in the Thargoid incursion zone announcement thread, but decided since these were...

    Find origin port of delivery missions

    With the new cargo Depot mechanics of the delivery missions it's easier than ever to forget to load up the cargo you committed to deliver and head out of the system, get interdicted, high wake, etc. My question is: how can I find out where do I have to get the cargo from once I left the mission...

    Ability to see required commodities for missions while buying or on ship inventory

    I am hoping this quality of life improvement can be added,. I basically would like a way of seeing what totals of missions items are required when purchasing commodities. When you have 6 or 7 missions all needing stuff, the missions may mean you need 3 different commodities made up of...

    I'm sure by now everyone has seen or heard the 2.8% figure on board flipping. As The Yamiks said in his video and in streams we kinda have to take FDEV's word for it because we don't have access to the data. To good naturedly have a lil fun I thought it would be fun to give them a little ribbing...

    PSA: Current C&P does not discourage PVP; It only prevents strike missions on controlling factions.

    Raw engineering materials as mission rewards

    The addition of raw engineering materials to mission rewards would help cut out a lot of the griping over grinding in the game. Material grade offered could be linked to mission ranking, and with the traders even getting lower grades of materials that can be traded up could make for a happier...

    Making the narrative of the game broader and more involved (taking Thargoids as an example)

    A big complaint with the narrative of Elite is that it feels a little too detached for most players. Unless you're there and actively participating, it may as well not be happening at all. A prime example of this is the Thargiod invasion. What's supposed to be a massive and important event has...

    Has Smuggling been forgotten?

    I've been on a long break from this game and redownloaded it earlier. My problems mainly lied with the fact that Grinding engineers gave an unfair advantage in PVP, lack of innovation when it came to missions, lack of meaningful PVP within Powerplay, but mainly the lack of depth and profit with...

    New Utility Mounts

    Couple new utility mount ideas: 1) Data Dish/Receiver - Something you could put on your ship to interact with a starport without having to dock with it. Once you get within range (ie maybe 7,500m) this would allow you to complete any task where there isn't something physically being exchanged...

    As you have probably all experienced; occasionally missions with a chain symbol next to them get offered to you by groups you've worked for before.

    Impossible passenger mission quantities
