    Improving on foot multicrew by changing how we respawn and reviving our team mates.

    With 4 player multi-crew coming I think a lot of people will play it and it could be a lot of fun, but it's missing a vital part of the experience - The feeling of being in a team, succeeding and failing, learning and achieving things together. To help to make this better can I make couple of...

    Multi-crew needs more love thread

    Hello Hello! So the new four-seater ships will be an awesome addition to the game, and streamlining the crew / wing / team thing is a must. Surely this must either pave the way for NPC crew in future, or some more love given to the multi-crew features? Given the way things stand, and some of...

    Can't see other commanders on planet in Crew mode Odyssey.

    So a friend and I were playing the other night, I invited him to be a crew member. We landed on a planet and I disembarked the ship (and I think it is so idiotic that the crew member can't disembark with me) in my SRV, and started driving around. We noticed that my friend couldn't see me out the...

    Newcomer / Intro Wing and multi-crew changes

    Greetings Commanders. With the release of Odyssey I was wondering if we should expect changes to the way that wings and Multi-crew work. I recently bought the base game for some of my friends when it was on sale and was baffled that wings and Multi-crew still can't mix. Not only that but wing...

    Instancing and Physical multi-crew issues

    o7 F-Dev! Thank you for Odyssey, it has some amazing potential. So far The main issue s I have been having is instancing and Multicrew. So me and my team land on a planet, 50% of the time we do not get put into the same instance. This is worse than before and requires us to jump to SC and then...

    Multicrew needs love / fixing: FSS

    I haven't used multi crew in the game proper since it first launched, mainly because it was just so clunky to do anything and largely redundant. Could anybody tell me if crew can use FSS and can they use it while the helm is moving through supercruise? Or does the helm still have to stop...

    add an option of gunner view in multi-crew

    A new view control mode: make the gunner's view based on ship location and rotation status, which will rotate together with the ship. This is possible to make the turret hard to control and aim for gunners (possibly not, if gunner and pilot cooperate well), but make more immense experience. and...

    Share Credits With Multi-Crew Commanders

    I was assisted in completing my first on-foot mission in the Odyssey Alpha by others in my Squadron, and it occurred to me that there was no way for me to show my appreciation in the way of sharing the credits I made from the mission. To that end, I would request: some kind of Crew % Share...

    Couple of suggestion features from CMDR Stoikiy

    Hello, dev-s, cmdr-s... this topic can be huge one. My opinion is hardly interesting to anyone, but if there are such people, including project managers, I hope I will see something of this in the future of the game. So let start: 1) suggestion feature: update punishments for PVP crimes...

    General Thoughts on SL craft and Multi-crew possibilities.

    I was talking with some friends, and we all had an agreement that multi-crew is basically not worth it which seems to be the consensus in the community. I had a long think, and while I am not super new, I am also not totally unversed in how Elite works so I had some thoughts that I would like...

    Accept the Crew

    1. I start open game 2. My friend (in game) start open game 3. I select the menu two friends and click - invite to the crew. 4. What's next? I don't get any reaction from him or me. How do you take a specific person as a crew member in an open game?

    Proposed Multi-crew Rework for Dedicated "Ship Engineer"

    Multi-crew could be much more, we all know this. With 100% ship functionality purposely designed to be controlled by a single CMDR, there really isn't enough tasks to dole out to two or three people. In this post, I am strictly going to discuss the role of multi-crew in Combat. Disclaimer...

    Will ED: Odyssey bring Winging Up, Multicrew and Squadrons back into focus?

    First, lets hope that Oddysey doesn't follow the steps of the SRV, where we can now walk on planets...and that's about it. Of course, there will be missions related to walking or could also be done in the SRV. Likewise, there will most likely be missions the require walking, in which case this...

    Fleet Carriers need to use more existing game play mechanics.

    I'm amazed at how few of the existing game play mechanics are used by the fleet carriers. Fleet carriers could make use of existing game play loops that are already familiar to players. I believe the following mechanics would significantly enhance the capabilities of the carriers and make them...

    True multi-crew ships (concept idea)

    Since multi-crew came out I think many of us tried it out but never really bothered to us it to make money with fighting, mining, trading or exploring. From my point of few the mistake was the concept of the ships combined with multicrew. A squadron of ships will alway outperform a current ship...

    To Frontier: what are multicrew exploration rewards supposed to be?

    Ever since it was implemented in the first beta of Chapter Four, multi-crew exploration never rewarded the crew's effort with anything. No credits, no rank progression. (Also no tags, but that is probably for the best.) To make sure, neither after the session, nor when the host sells the data...
  24. Red Fox Four

    Multi-crew rewards need to be 1:1 with the profits the pilot / ship owner gets.

    Jumped into a friends AspX to help him learn how the core mining works. We flew around for an hour or so and just popped some Alexandrite rocks. Yeah, yeah, not the top paying mineral but he was just learning the ropes. By the end though we had 50T of Alexandrite and a quick check on the Galaxy...

    Beyond Series: UNfocused Feedback - Multicrew

    Hi FDev, I've been using multicrew a lot of late, as the idea of working as a team to operate a ship is just damn cool. However, some smaller details have really marred the experience for me and my squadron-to-be. When using turrets, the tendency of targeting to select the ship under the...
