    Dismiss ship, while in SLF, and SLF infinite range for Odyssey

    Would be great if we could land SLF and walkout of it? Would be amazing. I wish we had infinite range on SLF, like in SRV, so we can dismiss ship and fly around in SLF above surface, would be badass for explorers in big ships like Conda or Cutter, just dismiss big ship and explore planet in SLF...

    Mining SLF

    This idea has been suggested multiple times in the past, but since we are getting space feet soon, and mining has been reworked not too long ago, I supposed now would be good time to push that idea again. My friend has always found elite very immersive, but has never been into it as mush as I...

    Ships Ship launched Transport

    What if they add little ships you can launch from your ship like the SLF but for going down to the surface and landing there like a dropship (think of the phantom from SW:Rebels) that way you dont have to risk landing your big ship and you could bring other people with you (i mean the srv doesnt...

    Give my other 2 crew something to do

    I trained them all up in the expectation that you guys would release content that would require them and I wanted to be prepared, but now I'm thinking I've been duped.

    Add "Attack Target" option to Fire Group Panel

    It sure would be handy to map "Attack Target" (SLF command) to my fire group, seeing that the SLF is basically a smart, mobile hardpoint. I've already used all my controller buttons, and dedicating a key / button to something that is only rarely equipped (fighter hangar) is a waste for me. That...

    Rethink SLFs for New Era

    Dear Frontier, please reconsider this telepresence nonsense when it comes to SLFs. It's just silly on multiple levels. We or our NPC pilot should be actually FLYING those SLFs. If the fighter is destroyed, then we have to rescue the pilot (or be rescued ourselves) in an escape pod. For the sake...

    More options for ships with fighter bays installed

    greetings. I would like to suggest a new option for the use of the fighter bay in the elite dangerous, the function of storing and firing heavy tactical weaponry as some attack aircraft do. I really like ships like the Krait MK2, Gunship and Crusader but the fighter bays don't really suit my...

    SLF future uses discussion

    Ok, so I've wondered why we don't have more use from SLF. How about SLF with a pulse wave scanner to fly ahead of mother ship and ID rocks quicker (possibly with a way to 'mark' or 'paint' them for mothership.) SLF with open weapon slots but restricted to class based on pre determined...

    Ship Launched Fighters - Suggestions

    Hello Frontier This long period of minor updates seems a good opportunity to tie up loose ends. I love the ship launched fighters. Everything about them, the sounds, the immersion, the system itself. Your developers went to a great deal to make SLFs an absolute joy and I commend them for that...

    Ship Launched Fighter Bug

    I've had this problem for well over a year now where my fighter ignores the "attack target" command when I'm targetting a thargon swarm. He will stay in the "Defend" command but still won't react to the thargon swarm damaging him, he just refuses to get into any combat with the swarm at all. If...

    New small ship class?

    I'd love some new smaller smalls. Based off existing SLFs or Maybe new designs based on the current SLF designs. Possible features of these new ships could be- - Jump/supercruise ability (lore explanation could be new guardian tech) - New weapon sizes/types (small plasma repeater, anyone...

    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...

    My biggest problem with SLFs

    There are certainly issues with the SLFs. Not too many bugs persay. Locking up while docking for example. Pretty annoying for sure but one thing bugs me more than anything else: the npc pilot complaining/warning me that the hull is at 50% or is critical etc when in reality they blew up two or...

    Here's the ask: Mining SLF's, multi-crew capable, to assist with utilizing the new mining features. Each SLF should have limited combat capability(using a mining lazer), or simply no offensive capabilities at all and simply chaff for escaping. The SLF would be able to scan the rocks and...

    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...

    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 Launch Reconnaissance - SLR

    Now we have a number of ships with fighter bays, I feel this would add an interesting dimension to gameplay.

    NPC crew training

    With the introduction of the Krait and newfound popularity of SLFs, maintaining a stable of upper rank crew members seems more relevant than ever (especially for someone who expects to use, and eventually lose, them in conflict with other CMDRs).
