    Multicrew - Lets Give it some Love Please, Devs

    MultiCrew is a really massively under-used feature that could be so great with just a little bit of fixing. Here are my ideas for what could be done. Now the Devs are fully into maintenance mode pending 2020's spacelegs, this could be an area of the game that could do with some love. 1. FIX...

    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...

    Multicrew, Wings, Squadrons, and alt accounts

    I've taken advantage of the anniversary offer to get two alt accounts (both with Horizons). My main CMDR is heading out for Colonia at the moment, the two alts are back in the Bubble (in their original Sidewinders). Eventually I will relocate one to Colonia. I've got all 3 up and running on...

    Ship Launched Miner?

    With mining being a ton more enjoyable thanks to the recent changes, it's still lacking a little bit in the multicrew department. Collector limpets are all well and good, but moving an Anaconda around an exposed asteroid core to get an abrasion blaster hit, that's pretty annoying. Hell it's even...

    Can't multicrew explore without multicrew SRV!

    The addition of the turret-style system & planet scanner, which allows multiple people (and crew) to use it at the same time, is great for multicrew! It actually allows players to cooperate together, and scan a system twice as fast, or even thrice as fast if you're wing exploring. (does it work...

    Multicrew exploration questions

    I just spent 3 HOURS in multicrew exploration trying to get my friend some beginning credits. I turn them in and he gets nothing, zilch, nada. Is there something that I did wrong? why didn't he get any of my profit (39 million)? Thank you for any kind of help.

    Is it possible to wing up 4 people in 2 ships with 2 crew in each?

    Multicrew exploration in 3.3

    So I just spend an hour having my friend join me on a 2 hour voyage from Colonia to Kashyapa, being rather productive we both went on the new frequency analysis scan thing and detailed surface scanner features, scanning 40 million worth of credits on the way. And I must say having a second...

    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...

    Multicrew in exploration still USELESS

    Hello, fellow CMDR's. I'd like to share with you my experience with a multi-crew in beta and now in live 3.3 chapter 4. I need to point out that 12th of September Will Flanagan posted this statement: So as you can see they've promised us rewards for doing exploration in multi-crew. So I did...

    Horizons Multicrew Base Assault!

    Hello Fdev, What's the chances of expanding the playstyle of base assaults? I think the following scenario would be quite easy to implement without too much effort: Add a function to the docking computer module, to allow a 'Base Assault' mode. Essentially a mutlicrew commander can set the...

    Multi crew mining payout question

    Hi, Me and my son were doing some multi-crew mining yesterday (Horizons non-beta - I can fly straight and he can fire the purple laser beams) and we could see the galatic avg price of silver, gold, funny-named-things being quite high (7k-9k per ton) so assumed we'd get around 50k profit for the...

    Want to know what would be great for Exploration?

    The incoming changes in CHPT 4 sounds great! But what would be grand for Exploration is : SPACE LEGS! (and multicrew) The problem that turns off most people from exploring is the tedious jump and honk - which is getting addressed with CHPT 4 however not the hyperspace travelling itself which...

    Beyond Chapter four - some love for multicrew planned?

    The actual beta and what we can expect from chapter four is incredible. For me it feels like the biggest update since release with a wide range of improvements (like finally sharing the target system with your wing). And exploration feels much more like exploring new systems and planets. For me...

    [Game Design] [Feature Request] Frigates - Player-Run Capital Ships

    I've come to the conclusion that what Elite is missing in the realm of Very Large Ships is Even Bigger Ships. Those top tiers of faction rank are empty and don't have much of a purpose at the moment, so why not kill a few birds with one stone? To be clear, these would not simply be...

    Sidewinder / support ship in Fighter Bay

    The in-game description of the fighter bay reads: "can take up to sidewinder size". It's a great disappointment, then, that I can't place my sidey in the fighter bay. This would make for some seriously enhanced game-play for several reasons: 1. you could use your sidey / suppport ship to dock...

    Add specialized hangers (cargo shuttles, mining units, passenger ferries).

    Adds a lot of multi-crew options to the game. Add small cargo shuttle hanger, similar to fighter bays, to allow large ships access to outpost missions. Say they transfer 100 tons or maybe 50 tons at a time. No FSD drive, no supercruise. Just space forklifts. Ships and fighters need to...

    More Multicrew Roles

    It would really be great to see more roles for multicrew, right now they are very combat focused (with some support in mining as well) but when it comes to exploration there isn't much to do except sit and enjoy the ride. Sometimes it'd be nice to leave the scanning and route potting to my...

    Horizons Wing missions are *almost* working in Crew - can we get the last step fixed?

    I've done a few tests with random players and found that right now, as of 3.0, Wing missions already almost work with Multicrew. Namely: Player can take & share wing mission while in crew Crewmembers can accept the wing mission Crewmembers see the mission in transaction tab Crewmembers get...

    Multicrew Benefits

    Ignoring all the bugs associated with multicrew, what are the benefits to the person joining someone else's ship? I've used multicrew in the past to see things like Beagle Point, but that's about it. So here are some specific questions (inspired by what I know about wings): 1) If I join a ship...

    My perception of E:D evolution

    I was thinking during more than week, how to express my feelings about Elite: Dangerous. And suddenly understood, that just a pair of pictures will say all for me, better than any words. This is how i perceived Elite2, Elite3, and Elite: Dangerous during first 1-2 years after release, and why...

    Mission reward sharing (WING,MC)

    As there appears to be a problem in the amount of credits earned in missions with multi-crew and wings how about when in a wing or multi-crew when accepting or upon completing (Up for debate) you get a window like in GTA's heist. Where you can send percentages / amounts per member of the wing /...

    Crew/Multicrew Suggestions/Improvements

    Greetings Commanders! (and hopefully at least one developer - fingers crossed) I'm going to be posting a few threads today of suggestions I have made on Reddit and Twitter, as I've been advised that this is where they're most likely to be seen. I'm going to try to be as concise as possible as I...

    FDev has made Every Style of Gameplay Unrewarding and Tedious

    Elite Dangerous' update cycle and game balance is one of the most neurotic in gaming. They either fail to notice a glitch that causes extremely unbalanced payouts/exploitable payouts, or otherwise take a new fun, rewarding and enjoyable game mechanic and nerf it until it's no longer fun or...

    SRV & Multicrew Feature Request

    First I'd like to quickly take this opportunity to say I am delighted with 3.0, the changes to the planets, engineers and the new chieftain particularly. Very good job! One of my few yet biggest disappointments with Horizons was the absence of SRVs in multicrew. It seems to be, particularly...

    SRV Multicrew

    One of the things I most wish we would see in multicrew is a more seemless experience. At the moment we can't stay in the ship during outfitting, SRV stuff, etc and the helm is locked to the helm. If work was done on adding SRV multicrew to elite, i think we would see all of these things...

    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...

    Approach for Multi-crewed SRV activities

    When multi-crew was first released, one of the activities I looked forward to the most was SRV operations. There was tons of potential: Crew taking to SRV to complete a mission while the captain provided air cover. Dual SRVs completing a mission. Multi-SRV exploration. Etc. So when it was...

    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.

    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...

    Crew Trust. The way forward

    When the initial multicrew feature was rolled out, a large emphasis was placed on matchmaking, and drop-in multiplayer sessions as a way to increase the social interactions in the game. While this cause is noble, one of the immediate reactions was related to mistrust and risk to the commander's...

    Exploration for Multicrew - no shared credit rewards?

    There’s no payment for anyone who explores as part of a multicrewed vessel. I get the Exploration is getting some love in Q4, but it’s still a bit of a kick in the teeth when an NPC crew member is still taking their cut from Universal Cartographics and other Commanders get zip. Combat bonds...

    Multicrew needs something more

    First off, the idea of multicrew is great, fantastic, revolutionary even! However, there are so many limitations to it that multicrew often becomes a hindrance if you're doing anything other than just flying around blowing stuff up. Here are just a few of the ways that multicrew could be made a...

    Please fix Multicrew already.

    To whom it may concern, As a huge fan of "Elite" I tend to defend almost everything Frontier Developments does. Even the most broken, disappointing, or plain and simply boring features are for me just "first steps" which are about to be updated and reworked as soon as possible. I said this to...

    How to disable gun control for multicrew?

    You know... guys hop on my Vette and fire 90,000 Cr of torpedos, plus 7A shield cell banks, causing 115,000 Cr heat damage not knowing a f*ck of what they are doing. Please, how can I avoid people to use a certain weapon/tool and let them use only the fighters? Thank you.
