    Catalogue of Galactic Nebulae - submit your planetary nebulae!

    Here's a catalogue of the nebulae in Elite's galaxy, divided into three categories: generated nebulae (I), generated planetary nebulae (II) and real nebulae of both kinds (III). There's extra information as well, such as galactic regions, which real nebulae have unique models, and so on...

    Respawn rates on ground missions

    I noticed the respawn rates during base missions are extremely fast. This is especially detrimental during high security missions which have lots of turrets and sometimes Goliath Skimmers, which take me a good 7-10 minutes to kill one, only to see another one appear almost immediately...

    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...

    Ideas for new types of SRV

    - Mining SRV (with machinery that will allow you to scan for underground resources and then use mining lasers or put out small version of mining devices we see in the outposts sometimes) - Exploration SRV (with scanners to scan every type of surface feature we have or will have like structures...

    Reduce the module class of larger Planetary Vehicle Hangar modules (SRV)

    Reducing the Class 4 Planetary Vehicle Hangar to Class 3 and the Class 6 to Class 4 would give more freedom in builds and would follow the same "doubling" logic as other modules. For instance, a Class 5 Cargo Rack holds 32t and a Class 6 holds 64t. The Fighter Hangar doubles in mass with...

    Illegal Planetary missions are listed as legal

    Every other illegal mission type lists out clearly that it would require you to do illegal actions. However, planetary missions do not have any such indication, even though they require illegal actions to be taken and the incurring of a bounty. What's the appropriate place to report this bug...

    SRV stuck

    :S No one noticed that is impossible to deploy an SRV while I'm docked on planetay starport? I remember it was possible but I don't want to belive it's a new feature...

    Let me enter latitude and longitude and have the HUD paint a target on the planet

    Make an interface to enter longitude and latitude and have the game paint a target reticle for the selected location, just as it does for bases, Etc.

    Two Things to Improve Thargoids and One Petty Thing I Want

    With the announcement of Chapter 2 today I want to make a push for some of things I (and others) want to see. 1.) Bring back Hyperdictions. Right now unless you go hunting, the Thargoids are just kinda there. Not the ever present threat and invasion force they're made out to be in the lore. One...

    Why are these forums constantly asking for planetary landings?

    It seems to me that the forum is full of planetary landing hype which has never been once confirmed or even hinted at by FDev. I can't see why people seem to want it so very much. Yes it will undoubtedly look nice, but unless there's some actual game design around the concept then it's almost...

    Race Tracks Anyone?

    Hi All, What do you think of this idea. You'll have seen in some bases (especially the big cities on the planetary surface) have roads which allow SRVs to drive around the city. What do think of creating a few planetary bases which consist of nothing but a large of circuit of this road. It...

    New Mission Type: Dust Off

    Another suggestion for a new mission type: Dust Off. The term "Dust Off" is normally used to refer to helicopter landings where the craft lands without shutting off it's engine so they can quickly pickup/drop off personnel and cargo. In this case the term refers to missions involving emergency...

    [SUGGESTION] Change to ATC to give vectors for planetary bases

    A small change: "Ok, Commander, you are a go for Pad 'One' 'Two'" To: "Ok, Commander, you a a go for Pad 'One' 'Two', Approach on Vector 'Two' 'Four' 'Zero'" The second being the compass heading that, if you line your compass to heading 240, (example), that you will be lined up very close to...

    My feedback on the guardian structures: the good, the bad and the insane

    So, after having done the guardian structures over and over, I think it's time for some feedback. Firstly: I think there's two layouts as of now, one for module BPs and one for weapon BPs, at least that's all the ones I came over. They were wonderfully intriguing to explore, the sound design...

    Planetary tagging

    Has anyone else had problems with the planet tag button? I’m traveling through the galaxy doing a passengers mission and when I find something of interest I usually tag the planet. Suddenly three days ago my tag button stopped working. It just spins around like it’s loading but it doesn’t...

    New take on SRV and Fighter gameplay

    Hey, So I know you guys probably get insane amounts of suggestions every day, with that in mind I thought about something that might solve a problem that may or may not exist. You have a significant crowd of players that want more SRV type craft. A smaller amount wants more Fighter Craft...

    Newcomer / Intro Multiple scan missions on same planet!

    Greetings Commanders, I have had a right pig of a time with multiple planet scan missions on the same planet. I had 4 , and after each one I couldn't work out how to activate the next. Went back to the nav beacon etc. But when I went back and locked on to source , it was one I had been to ...

    Better navigation / map whilst driving planetary vehicle

    Doing the latest CG: Ram Tah's Last Hurrah, I found it very difficult & disorienting whilst trying to navigate myself around the guardian ruins. I know where I wanted to go but it's hard to visualize that from the buggy cockpit. The only points of reference I had were the ship, and some pillars...

    Confused in Hollatja

    For a little background: I’m fairly new at ED with around 20 hours play time. Earlier tonight, I took a mission to deliver Boom Data to one system, then in route, a mission update came thru that changed the destination to Poppers Keep in the Hollatja system. A planetary outpost on Hollatja 2. No...

    Please help with planetary landing missions?!?!

    Hi all, I hope I'm posting in the right area for this, I don't use forums in general much. I took out my first mission that involved landing on a planet and deploying the SRV. I had to scan something in a base. My friend told me that I had to disable gun turrets to get anywhere near the thing I...

    Crime and punishment for planet scan jobs

    I just watched both casts of upcoming "Beyond" expansion and have question about law and punishment. It seems to be somewhat broken right now for the "planetary scan" missions where you have to download data from beacon. I haven't been doing anything illegal, many of these missions are...

    Setting custom landing point

    Hi, my suggestion is to allow to set a custom landing point in the planetary view. It should be settable either by placing a pin on the planet hologram or by placing coordinates into dedicated fields. Once the landing point is set up, you could be able to land in the same way you land on a...

    Has no-one requested a PLANETARY ship, with NO FSD, for transport and haulage within solar systems and as a general construction, colonisation and scientific reserch vessel? I ask because, after a boring day scanning obscure TV channels, I stumbled across Gerry Anderson's "Space 1999" and was...

    Newcomer / Intro I have a probably very stupid question about planet surface salvage

    I'm asking this in the newcomers' forum, because I'm imagining it's something well known which I've just not come across before, and/or am too stupid to figure out. I was collecting some salvage from a shipwreck on a planet's surface, for a mission. There were some skimmers guarding it, easy...

    Feature request - Planetary landing vertical thrust booster

    Hello Frontier, i just came up with a neat Idea. When you see any kind of real-life space landers they always fire a thruster just before landing to effectively decrease speed on touchdown. How about incorporating that into Elite? A higher grade Planetary Approach Suite, a more expensive and...

    RCT 3 PC Hiding Flat Ride Bases

    Hi all. I've been searching for a solution for this for days but have had no luck. Basically, I have a few CFRs and some scenery to go with them to make them look more realistic. Most of the scenery can be placed over the rides without any problems but there are one or two rides that need to be...
