    Blocking in Elite Dangerous

    UPDATE - Thanks to much discussion and the very simple but elegant solution posed by one CMDR, I've changed my approach to the blocking system. I've decided to use it as a reverse iron man, in that once you have murdered me, I'm dead to you. You'll never see me again, because to you, I'm dead...

    Do "purple-haired heroes" scare everyone into Solo?

    This is my first CG on PC, woo! I've been "ship watching" at one of the CG stations, and the flow of CMDR trading traffic has been steady. Finally I decided to grab a few tons of grain in my Dolphin to do my part, and on my return to the system I was chased by two very persistent griefers. To my...

    Finally got my Basilisk!

    Just hope his rebuy screen is as expensive as mine! Sorry for some misspelling in the video. I realized them as I was adding closed captions and portuguese translation subtitles. Source: https://youtu.be/OBUgEdUCMiY

    Thargoid Cyclops solo in 4:34 min

    So I finally decided to try my hand at Thargoid combat. I've built the biggest tank I could, watched every tutorial video and went for it. After a while I realized I was killing Cyclops quickier than most videos. I was pretty proud of myself, so I tried to find which is the speedrun record for...

    Modes Block CMDR's with 'SYSTEM' chat.

    If you're a ganker, make sure to block lawful CMDR's using the system chat. That way they won't be able to instance with you, and won't be able to even try oppose you in Open mode. You can keep on ganking with no 'threat', it's incredible! Fly safe-space, CMDR's, Z0.

    Play Modes, Solo/PG/OP

    I know this has been said a thousand times before and I know I'm going to attract controversy for saying it but if I don't say it, how will Frontier know it's something I and likely many other people invested in the background sim would like. Gathering feedback in my gaming community for why...

    Powerplay PowerPlay in Open Or Solo

    Very, very sorry if I missed an announcement thread somewhere but I know that there were several rather lengthily (and often heated) discussions concerning the question of Power Play being Open only or not. I had assumed the discussion back and forth on this issue was expected to be decided upon...

    Modes Idea for game mode resources being non transferable

    The idea is: what happens in a mode stays in a mode. Wanna play single player fine. Wanna play open fine. Wanna play both , fine. But your stuff in one does not exist in the other. This means pvpers can't hide in solo when in their taxi ship to CG, and then switch to open when they feel safe in...

    Modes Make SOLO a stand-alone game!

    Solo Play interactions with other players

    Hi! I have three questions relating this topic: 1. In Solo Play, do other ships represent real players or they are AIs? 2. Am I destroyable in Solo Play Mode if I slow down in space somewhere in a star system and quit from the game application? How does other players see and interact with my...

    NPC Wings and Crew - Single and Multiplayer Balance

    Modes Mode Feature Exclusivity...AKA..."Render unto Caesar..."

    So..."Render unto Caesar..." Since Mode Feature Exclusivity is being justified by Sandro's statement of Player versus Player style in Open, the next best course of action would be then to remove all PvE activity from Open and make it available only to Private Groups and Solo as a result, as...

    Fixing Community Goals - Recognize Logistical Support

    Community Goals have a problem. Namely, the often encourage NOT participating in Open or Groups, but instead, resorting to Solo play. And while its fine to play Solo if you choose to, NEEDING to play Solo, in order to fulfill "Community" Goals...is a problem. To fix this, we first need to...

    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.

    Morning Cmdr's! I'm sure this has been posted elsewhere, but I couldn't find it(didn't look because I'm at work) and wanted your thoughts. With Squadrons coming up, I thought it was time to revisit this idea. The long-short of it is that, if FD could enable PVP flagging, there wouldn't be a...

    Hi, in October and November 2017 I outfitted an Anaconda with experimental weapons and lots of armor and had like 15 -20 tries on killing Thargoid cyclops interceptors. Tried a lot of different setups but never managed to kill the thing solo. Usually I got out alive with 10% hull, but once in...
