    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...

    Objective Based CQC

    Spontaneous PvP Story

    TL;DR: Not everyone in Open are giant piles of lint bags. Some faction wingmates and I decided to do some Bounty Hunting in the local Haz Res in Eravate, which at the time was the meeting point as all 4 of us were spread out over the galaxy. We decided to go to Open, more of a convenience...

    How about a new Powerplay mode?

    What if we had a Powerplay mode where you can only attack or be attacked by people who have pledged to a power other than your own? My biggest issue with moving Powerplay to Open is the gankers and griefers who don't care about Powerplay at all, but just want to go after the easy target of a...

    Why can't we just have a separate BGS/server for each mode?

    What is the barrier preventing Fdev from having separate servers for each mode? Is it just too much work? I'm hoping someone can enlighten me. It seems to me this would keep both sides happy but maybe i'm missing something.

    Engineers Emmisive. Broken.

    Just a quick issue i'd like to raise concerning emmisive rounds. Every other effect has a very short timer, why is it that emmisive lasts for pushing 25/30 seconds?

    Balancing Hulls vis a vis Shields (and making the shield meta less dominant vis a vis hull tanks)

    Meaningful PvP Proposal

    A regular complaint justifiably levelled at ED is that there is no 'meaningful' PvP, it has no effect on the BGS, combat ranks etc. It cannot, because the idea of effecting change via PvP is incompatable with the instancing filters (blocklist and solo/group modes). The aim of this proposal is to...

    Global Increase to Total Ammo

    Pretty self-explanatory, IMO every weapon should have a larger pool of ammunition in reserve. I'm thinking somewhere between 25%-50% increase, probably less for missile racks (torpedoes should be unaffected). For the most part my reasoning comes from having run out of ammo in nearly every...
