    Mining fighters

    Either create mining specific fighters out allow for the loadout if fighters to be changed to include mining equipment. Imagine being able to use your cutter to scan for deep core asteroids, find one with a prospector limpet, then launch your mining fighter, place charges while your cutter...

    The Friend Bus

    Hey y'all, I have been playing Elite for almost two years now; slowly earning money, enjoying quiet moments in my cockpit and the occasional combat. Every once in a while I've run into another player--sent them an o7 before they waked out, or entered a CG only to be inexplicably blown away by...

    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...

    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...

    Newcomer / Intro New Player Multicrew

    I have a friend just joining the game and my friends and I have played for some time now. to give him some practice flying around with us I tried to invite him to multicrew but it said invitee is already in a crew. I am unsure if this is because he is in the new player star systems and needs to...

    Dear Santa... (mining fighter and subtypes)

    So, I know I've been really good this year, and I only flew my spaceship for good, and helped out my friends, and evacuated dozens of burning space stations, even when they locked me out because I was trying to get inside a burning station but had a fender bender... but that's a grumble for...

    Mining SLF(Pretty please FDEV)

    Here's the ask: Mining SLF's, multi-crew capable, to assist with utilizing the new mining features. Each SLF should have limited combat capability(using a mining lazer), or simply no offensive capabilities at all and simply chaff for escaping. The SLF would be able to scan the rocks and...

    Comprehensive Multi-Crew Exploration System

    Hi, I have a few suggestions in mind with the recent BETA. Please note that BETA 2 is currently experiencing server issues, but I considered my suggestions in alignment with the new game mechanics. First of all I have to say the multi-crew element is severely lacking in it's current state in...

    My First Thargoid Kill!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZfpHdQabgc&t=1s This one was a close scrap, we nearly died! The story goes that I was looking to help someone kill a Thargoid Cyclops and I eventually found him! His name was CMDR Scotia47X. We were eventually joined by another commander, and his name was...

    NPC Crew

    Posted this on one of the Facebook groups the other day but posting it here for consideration in the roadmap: NPC Multi crew where firstly they will warn you (cue different voices associated with crew) that a module is taking damage but you can then instruct them to start repairs. You could...

    Multi-Crew (Winged) missions not paying out

    I was wondering if anyone else has come across this issues before. I believe a little back story might be needed. I am in route to Colonia. ~8000Ly from the bubble. My buddy asked if I could join his crew to help defend is Type-9 during a Wing mission that pays 13mil Cr. After serveral attempts...

    Multi-Crew Fun Success

    Just thought I'd share that my buddy and I are having a fun time in Multi-Crew. I've been on PC for awhile, currently working on rank for a Corvette, but for the time being my Annie is giving me loads of fun. He just switched from Xbox to PC, but he decided not to transfer accounts, as he has...

    Expanded multi-crew powers

    So after streaming multi-crew exploration and its limitations today, I'd like to throw out some ideas that I'm /hoping/ wouldn't be too terribly hard to implement. This isn't even asking for shared payout. This is purely to help the CMDR in charge. While this is primarily for exploration, it...

    Fleet Carrier ideas / hopes for Q4 2018

    The idea of being able to interact with Fleet Carriers in the upcoming Q4 update for 2018 is a truly exciting idea. I started this thread to hear everyone's input on how they would want this to work, including how the structuring of Squadrons would play into the fleet carrier concept. -Should...

    Space Legs

    I signed up for this Forum because it seemed to be the best way to submit suggestions to developers. More than anything I would love Space Legs to be a part of this game, not only for planetary surfaces but for the interiors of the larger ships as well. Ships such as the Type 9 and Type 10 have...

    Multi-Crew Questions and Issues (With FGS advice appreciated)

    Hey everyone, I just bought a FGS and was trying to multi-crew with my two friends who play ED. I have a size 6 SLF hanger and two SLFs, but I could only invite one person to my crew. Reddit threads from the 2.2 beta prior to SLF release mentions you can have two humans pilot your SLFs. Did the...

    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...

    SRV Orbital Drop

    Precisely as the title says, I would appreciate being able to drop the SRV without landing all the way even if the limit is within 1 km of the surface just being able to drop the SRV makes sense especially when it becomes multi-crew capable. You could do something like what appeared in the...

    Multicrew Exploration

    Suggestion for a way to pair multi crew with exploration Scanning lab module for determining the exact value of exploration data before you scan could be player multi crew and hired crew. The crew could also work as a scanning turret to scan bodies from any angle and multiple at the same time...

    CMDR just wants to play.

    This isn't my post, but I'm crossposting it because I bloody well feel like it should be done. Original text here, and edited-for-language version follows below: TL;DR: Every time I want to play a space game, I boot up this one instead of the others. And every time I do, I’m reminded of why I...

    Multi-Crew expansion

    When I first heard of multicrew I thought, “that would be awesome!” I thought of something along the lines of Star Trek. The current implementation is progress, but I have some suggestions on ways to expand the roles: 1) allow the ship owner to designate modules / fire groups that the crew...

    Ok, I'll contribute an idea to ED: Mission Hubs

    This has probably been suggested before, but I'm too lazy to go search for it (sorry). Current Mission Format You dock. You access the station computer (from inside your ship). You get missions. You undock. You can't even see other player ships parked nearby.....zzzzzz....boring. Suggested...

    Multi-Crew + Wing-Experience = Needs Inmprovements

    So last night I had a friend join the game after purchasing a copy of Elite in the sale. This friend wished to join us in Bounty Hunting in PvE, but being brand new and inexperienced I suggested perhaps multi-crew on board my ship first while I wing with some friends so she could learn a little...

    NPC Crew Members for hire Please

    Greetings fellow cmdrs, my question to Frontier Development is will we ever be able to hire NPC Crew members for our ship? I think I'm not the only commander that would like to see his ships bridge or cockpit filled with a human body instead of an empty chair. The current multi-crew is...
