    I'm here to complain about punishment for friendly fire

    In the half year I've owned this game, I've received two 200cr bounties, for my NPC fighter firing at a station because its target vessel was moving and because my anaconda got a bounty for one of its lasers slipping and firing at an innocent guy, respectively. This is very annoying since it...

    Damaged station fines

    Ok Im in my cutter, evacuating people from a station. Im about to touch down when a close explosion occurs. Im flung to another pad, and am told off for blocking the pad. I leave within five seconds, but gain a 500cr fine. Whatever. I go to take some missions. I cant because im wanted. I go to...

    I've Been A BAD Boy

    The most expensive ship in my main CMDR's fleet, the BattleConda "Terrible Shadow" (EBL-07), now has a collective bounty of over 100,000,000 credits on it. I kinda went all "War Doctor" back when I was considering clearing my save and starting fresh, just to try out a life of crime for the fun...

    Police/bounty hunting gameplay enhancements

    Had an idea after seeing how easy and unpunished murdering feels in ED. To stimulate pvp, the possibility to work with the system factions with a structured way of enforcing the law better than the current bounty hunting system based only on scanning. A new profession to have fun which...

    Renown GANKER ERADICATOR / BOUNTY HUNTER - This is what I want to be when I grow up!

    But, not under the current system. I want to be well paid for each and every psycho kill, according to his/her skill and danger level, and I also want a title that shows how proficient I am at ridding the galaxy of the antisocial elements. I think it may prove to be a wonderful emergent gameplay...

    First-degree murder & Punishment

    Even after the introduction of Crime & Punishment there are still lots of complaints about griefing, pointless killing of weak CMDR's and such. In case there is a will to improve on this, I'd suggest an extension of the current Crime & Punishment system: First-degree murder. This suggestion...

    C&P Refinement suggestion.

    Strap in guys, its a bit of a long post! As we all know the new C&P is...well honestly a bit of a mess. The previous system didn't stop grief, but also didnt do much in terms of adding to it, beside the occasional friendly fire, and needing to warp in and out of the system. Now we've got a...

    To the office of the Imperial Magistrate CC: Office of the Sherrif LHS 1856 To whomsoever this may be of greatest concern or interest, Sir, Ma'am, M'Lord, M'lady, I have recently (to my mind) been the victim of a misunderstanding that, while inconvenient at most, may indeed perhaps be a sign...

    Merging the new Exploration tools with Bounty Hunting

    First off, loved the new changes and tools added to exploration. The past system always seemed absolutely lacking in content and interest beyond jump, scan, repeat. Now all these new tools and scanners will make the scanning process more interesting and open up more randomized events and...

    Rework C&P and spice it up with Risk&Reward!

    Edit: For clarification and stuff, that I cuted out by accident. Edit 2: Including some points from the comments. Edit 3: Consider Medium security tag.

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

    PSA: Current C&P does not discourage PVP; It only prevents strike missions on controlling factions. Current C&P mechanics cause any strike missions with Authority vessels nearby to be treated as equal to or greater than player ships. Killing authority ships results in an increase of notoriety...

    Making Illegal Activities more Fun and Viable

    The biggest impediment to illegal activites are:- 1. Low payouts that are not at all commensurate to the risks taken 2. Overzealous, overcomplicated and oversensitive Crime and Punishment system that actively discourages any sort of infraction whether major or minor (and therefore makes illegal...

    "Crime" and punishment

    Not a new player, not moaning, just pointing a finger at ridiculous. Ship with no weapons. Lands on planet. Skimmer flying in to a landing ship. Ship gets wanted. Ship fly to station to pay it off, ship gets fired on, lands finally. Gets transported to a detention center for 400 credits...

    Rework Crime and Punishment

    Yeah, crime and punishment needs some serious rework. The fact that in case you loose your ship you get treated equally and are send to a detention facility, no matter if you got a 5 million credits bounty on your head or just a laughable 200 cr fine - that's just stupid and ridiculous. After...

    Crime And Punishment is an Edsel, time to admit it, trash it and move on to better things

    o7 Cmdrs: Firstly, this is intended to be constructive, it isn't a rant post or some anger vent because of some CnP related horror I've just experienced. In the recent 5 hour Fdev stream, Sandy came on and briefly touched on a couple things being adjusted in the new CnP system and that's great...

    How To Cure Griefing (and other great ideas)

    There seems to be some debate on how much of the new C&P system is a response to player "griefing", but I think there may be a better way to "cure" this problem that's logical, easy to implement, PvP-friendly, and brings meaning to system security state. Disable FSD Interdictors in HiSec...

    I think I'd rather deal with griefers...

    Having had time to fully experience C&P from both sides of the law, I think I'd rather go back to the pre-3.0 system, even if that means dealing with more griefers. That's why we have this convoluted system, right? I want to clarify a couple of things. The vast majority of my "illegal"...

    C & P: Hunting down CMDRs with high notoriety

    I know crime and punishment is being tweaked further, but I was thinking back to when i used to play a text-based MUD in the 90s that allowed unlimited PVP and stuck to roleplay as much as possible, and the ways we could self-police other players causing trouble. In that game (also a huge open...

    Bounty threshold

    Hi, in these days I'm playing as a bounty hunter. It happened, 3 or 4 times, to hit "not wanted" ships by mistake and to gain a bounty. A clearly low bounty of 200 cr. At this point I became wanted and I had to fly to the nearest Interstellar Factor to have my bounty cleared. But to do that I...

    Crime and punishment stole my ship

    Gaind a small fine and a bounty on a planetary scan mission. Returned to current CG station and changed ships for some bounty hunting. Now my Asp X is locked out says (Legal Issues). I have been to interstellar factors and paid all fines and bounties and I still can’t get my Asp back. I would go...

    Crime & Punishment & NPCs & Wasting Players' Time

    Playing the Rind Bounty CG in a High Res site, I've come to the conclusion that you really DO want to waste players' time with the Crime & Punishment system. I'm tired of being forced to travel several systems away to clear a 400cr bounty for accidentally shooting a system security ship once...

    Crime does NOT fit the punishment

    In an empire system i was given a 600 cr bogus fine leaving dock. Was leaving system so i didn't pay it. 500 ly later at sothis i bought some modules and my NOW-Illegal mods went into storage. This is an independent fed station why would they screw me over a 600cr fine? I couldn't use the mods...

    C&P example structure.

    Fines should be able to add up to a bounty. For example. 10,000 in fines= bounty Tier 1 Murder= Bounty no matter what. The bounty should start at 10,000 cr and go up from there. Because you killed someone. FSD interdiction of a clean ship= Bounty. This is because the victim needs to be able to...

    Make notoriety stat more visible

    I've just been helping a friend reacquaint themselves with the game after some time away, and it was difficult to explain where to check the notoriety stat. I'd like to propose that it's added to the 'status' tab (left-most tab on the right HUD panel) below balance, rebuy cost, local bounty &...

    The Problem with Notoriety (and how to make it work)

    The idea behind notoriety, to allow for player killing to have tangible consequences, is good. Unfortunately, the actual effect of this system is more often than not, less than desirable. The problem with notoriety comes from the fact that the actual system for detecting bounties in the game is...

    I just committed a crime and didn’t become wanted

    Upon hearing that FDEV will shortly make more changes to C&P, I decided to test something out that I read was wrong prior to the new C&P which I had hoped was corrected under the new C&P; nonetheless, it is evident that crimes can still be committed without justice. Basically a friend I pledged...

    Improving the Crime and Punishment system

    I believe that a lot of the attendant frustration with the new Crime and Punishment system arises because of the oversensitive nature of the system. This creates a situation where the system, while having some impact on PvP, has a large unintended and frustrating impact on innocent activities...

    A little unsure what to do now...

    All right, so I don't play Elite too often, I kind of just play in spurts here and there, really makes the game feel new again each time I play, and I haven't really played much since before the release of Beyond. So I'll begin the story of how the new crime and punishment system has either got...

    Anaconda + Turreted Cannons are farming bounties that I can't get rid of ?!

    So, here is the plot: I have an Anaconda with H Beamlasers (gimballed) and 3 L Cannons, which are turreted. The last days I wanted to farm some materials and a bit cargo in my favorite system with all pristine rings, so I flew into a RES and started mining. Usually after some minutes some...

    Unable to pay a fine, is it a bug, a feature, or just me?

    I nearly dozed off doing the Broo Tarquin tea run—dropped the controller and it promptly lost contact with the xbox. Grabbed it, but for whatever reason it wouldn’t reconnect, so Futen terminal eventually killed my ship (I had just launched). Tedious, but whatever. Respawned with a 900 credit...

    Escort Missions (sort of)

    Lets say a small group of players are having an event, or running missions, or whatever, and they are prone to disruptive commander attacks. How about a system to alert nearby player when another player falls under attack. My idea is like this: Its similar to the wing beacon under functions...

    Notoriety in 3.0

    So here it is. 3.0 has dropped and I must say, there are quite a lot of things I love about the latest iteration. Material limits for one are amazing. Now I feel motivated and even a bit vindicated in how much I enjoy what practically amounts to looking for shiny rocks. Especially prospecting...

    3.0 + Powerplay Undermining = No Good

    The new Crime and Punishment system is not tuned correctly for Powerplay undermining and has made this aspect of the game uninviting/not fun and appears to punish this type of play. - Gain bounty when you destroy legitimate opposing faction NPC – Agree - Gain Notoriety value when...

    Criminal law system and game ruiners...

    Spotted this behauviour at Founder's world station: Some players having "fun" in blocking landing pads and bragging about their skillz while doing so. I'd suggest that making such behauviour punishable, and even making station defences react to it would be a nice touch for such "fun" loving game...

    Capturing wanted criminals alive

    So in short I’d really like to see missions that require you to hire an NPC strike/extraction team (maybe this could be a separate module) and after you module snipe an NPC enough to board them, maybe just destroy their power plant and risk blowing them up, or getting their thrusters knocked...
