    Need some PvE ship advice for Colonia

    I need some PvE ship advice. I am currently 6500 ly from Colonia and I'll be planning on staying there for a few months, maybe permanently. I'm travelling in my ASPX and plan on transferring my mining ASPX over when I arrive. I have an unengineered Anaconda back in the bubble but don't want to...

    Ships Whats your explorer builds?

    I'm currently enjoying exploring with my DBX explorer, its never overheated on me, and I've sussed how to scoop stars without getting too close. I've never needed to use my afmu. I'm starting to dive into engineering to make it jump even further. Current jump range is now 71.43ly Anyway, whats...

    Discussion Consistency (and ease) of interface

    Do you recall that "Nuke/Nurse" button in the Spitting Image clip of Genesis' "Land of confusion"? Why is in your ship moving your joystick or pushing a button almost completely unlike in your SRV or in free camera? Does any of the developers own a motorcycle that turns left when you move the...

    Jerry Rigging Thargoid Technology In Human Ship

    Hello Commanders. We must advance our ship technology, thargoids are planning something. I propose we take blown up pieces from thargoid ships, slowly construct a wormhole tear device similar to what thargoids use, reinforce ship hull with thargoid petal materials with anti-corrosion layer for...

    QOL Suggestions for Ship Purchases ETC

    Frontier Pilot Simulator

    Frontier Pilot Simulator This is one of the games I've been looking forward to the most. A ship flying game, set in another planet, in which the gameplay emphasis in on the actual flying itself. It's still in early access but it's very playable already. You have detailed flight models...

    Fastest Eagle In The 'Verse

    So do I win a prize? That is one eight two seven for those who cannot see. I can go faster, just you wait! ps - despite the title, this actually has little to do with ships (please don't move to that subforum). I believe I could do the same in my Type-7 if I wanted!

    Mining Ships

    With the considerable work put into mining mechanics, and the resurgent popularity of prospecting in the game, I thought it time to revisit the old suggestion of having ships designed for mining, just as we do for exploration, trading, combat, and multi-roles. I'd like to see at least one...

    New Explorable Content

    Before I begin I know this is a far fetched idea as of now, but keep your minds open to the concept and imagine what it would actually feel like in game. As you all may know, Elite: Dangerous Horizons was one of the major factors of Elite Dangerous's success besides the fact it was one of the...

    Type 7 needs a Medium hardpoint!

    With the new "gold rush" of mining, both the super-valuable void opals and just general core mining being great, it's now a very viable gameplay style for both new and old players. But with some of my newer friends to the game starting out, i've noticed there's two awkward holes in progression...

    Non-Engineered Builds - Exploration, Mining, Fighting

    Ok, so I understand that Engineering and Guardian based/influenced builds are part of the game. But why is it SO hard to find combinations with decent jump ranges, weapons, mining, and repair/limpet loadouts which are NOT engineered or guardian influenced? Some of us either do not want or, for...

    Capital Ships MUST Be able to be DESTROYED

    Capital Ships must actually be capable of being Destroyed/Blown Up. We as Players, are no longer mislead to believe that you can kill a Power-Play Boss. We get it, you don't want to have to actually change Characters upon the movement of the Galaxy by the players of Elite Dangerous. Even though...

    Hello CMDRS, I am prepping for the distant worlds 2 journey. I have never been out in the black for longer than a few days at most, and have been agonizing over what to bring on such a journey knowing I can't change my mind. So, I went back and forth arguing with myself between my old aspx and...

    As the title says, this ship lacks both ship kits and has very few liveries. Reply to this thread to 'sign' the petition.

    Ship kits are OK, but need purpose and character!

    Ship kits are really cool, and it's great that they are a thing in the game. However, the vast majority of the parts are focused on just adding pieces to the hull, like extra wings or aerodynamic parts. This means that while they look COOL, almost none of them add any /character/ to the...

    Allow more Ship Launched Fighters when not in a wing

    Hi there! So, the idea actually comes from Fortnite single player campaign. Basically in the game, you have an ability to place up to 3x NPCs and give them guns and ammo to help you defend if you are playing solo. The game is up to 4 player coop and with each human player in the team, the...

    Suggestion: Revamping the ship transfer system

    So quite a lot of people hate the ship transfer system, some because it can get ludicrously expensive, and others because it’s a waste of time that could be spent having fun. As a compromise to fixing the current ship transfer system, lets have the default ship transfer be free (or of a petty...

    SLF Pilots survival should create new Mission Board Recovery

    Problem: CMDRs who spend a lot of time training a SLF pilot suffer a terrible loss when their ship is destroyed. This is incredibly frustrating and is considered a great loss to CMDRs who spend a tremendous amount of time training and developing their SLF pilots all the way up to ELITE...

    Ship Concept - Carrier

    I've loved the idea of being a large ship, with tools to support my wing with strike craft, and utilities, as well as support the strike craft. (I'm working on a healer/disabler support platformer with my Cutter now in fact.) Battlestar Galactica Online had player carriers, which was one of my...

    Hi All, Various versions and visions of this concept have been mentioned before on this forum, but I just thought I would raise this up again as we are nearing the Q4 update, in the hope that perhaps it (or something very similar) might be brought to the game as part of the QOL improvements...

    Ok, so I just bought a chieftain. I only had 22 mil, not counting my aspX cuz I don’t want to sell it. So I’m looking for some good builds for my new chieftain. I’m not great at outfiting for combat at all. I just threw a bunch of burst lasers on it and a Hull reinforcement package. So if anyone...

    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...
