    An open letter to Frontier Development

    I am a huge fan of your company and devoted player of your game, as well as purchaser of many, many paint jobs. I am the co-host of a podcast every week that is dedicated to the amazing thing that you have created. I love so many aspects of it that were I to fully unpack that statement it would...

    A Federation Story Campaign (Empire/Alliance players please read!)

    https://discord.gg/fBtnVNG CONTEXT This is the response to what I have found many players complain is lacking in the game of Elite Dangerous. An actual story driven campaign to excite player involvement in the game. I myself have put over 800 hours into Elite Dangerous. I get it. To some that...

    Closest You Have Came To Disaster with an Expensive Ship

    This post is where you can show how close you came to really mucking up your expensive ships with all your expensive cargo and modules. You can add a short story, maybe a screenie (in spoilers please, to keep the comments from filling space). Remember, this has to be a really scary moment, not...

    Well - that was - Uhmmm - Exciting...

    ... and quite possibly the most fun I've ever had playing ED. Better even than when 2 Cobras piloted by CMDR's jumped me. Anyway - out of the clear blue sky (I didn't search on the topic) YOUTUBE recommended a video about how to do FED/EMPIRE ranking - fast, real fast. I was in the business at...

    How I quadrupled my money in an afternoon. (A rambling story)

    OK, so realtalk, it was only a little over 4 mil to begin with. I had mostly A rated iCourier, iClipper, and iEagle except for using bi weave shields and some B modules due to availibility on station, plus doing a little module tetris. I went ratting and sensor hit exploring a little in the...

    Ideas to bolster Comunity Goals

    So I have several ideas to add some flavor into the current Community Goal events (or CG events) using some in game features already in the game but with a slightly different organization of layout first let me layout the overview of stuff we got and stuff I would love to see. 1...

    Suggestions for how to increase player global story exposure

    What the game needs is more exposition of the story in the entire galaxy. Have the Wedding barges refer to the royal wedding, let the bounty hunters chat about thargoids, have some person there at the Commodity Market/Contacts/Station Services chat to you about the latest story elements...

    Making the narrative of the game broader and more involved (taking Thargoids as an example)

    A big complaint with the narrative of Elite is that it feels a little too detached for most players. Unless you're there and actively participating, it may as well not be happening at all. A prime example of this is the Thargiod invasion. What's supposed to be a massive and important event has...

    Community Event / Creation Deep Space Dangus

    Hey CMDRS, For anyone interested in Elite content that's more on the humorous/RP side of things, I've been putting out videos recently in a mini-series called "Deep Space Dangus", chronicling the adventures of Captain Spatula as he travels from Colonia, to Sagittarius A on a secret mission for...

    Gnosis upcoming jump [FOR THE DEVS]

    Hey guys. With the upcoming gnosis jump to a permit locked system there is a great opportunity for some epic gameplay and surprises. I have no doubt that you have something in store for us. Even if it’s just a bunch of new thargoids to shoot at. That said can I make a suggestion. The lore...

    Some thoughts about immersion + ideas

    First of all, I have to say: I love Elite Dangerous. Sound design is AAA (++), game depth is AAA, graphics are AAA, effects are AAA. Nothing to mention here. Therefore every following comment is meant to be constructive criticism. And you might guess where it's going. I'm going to talk about...

    More story missions

    I personally like the engineers, unlocking them gave a great tour of different game modes. It would be nice to have a set of unique (non-repeatable) missions, triggered by various game milestones. Even nicer if they have higher payouts than normal missions, and tell some kind of overall story...

    Galnet needs to go on the Comms Panel & soon

    Some players don't even know that the aliens are called Thargoids so imho for 2.4 to be a success the important Galnet articles relating to the narrative need to end up on the Comms panel, whether that be the actual article or a notification (and preferably the article for me so it can read...

    Docking Port Visibility

    Is it just me going blind in my old age, or could more be done to make the docking port more visible when approaching a Coriolis station from the side? Obviously the rotation of the station narrows your options down to either pole for the location of the port, but I often find that's where the...

    Docking entry size

    I just realized that all player owned ships in ED has to be manufactured to actually fit the docking station entry door? Unless they are planning external docking? :S

    Help - how I fly. With tips. Hyperspace, supercruise, dock, land and trade

    Hi, I've tested using keyboard only (no mouse etc. pure basics) since the start. I made my very first video this morning. It might help you fly. The video is piloting a cumbersome Lakon Type 9 but the principles should apply to smaller craft too. It covers hyperspace, supercruise, tea...

    Thoughts On Starbases

    Spacestation docking

    Hi 1. will the dockingport on spacestations be facing the planet it's orbiting ? 2. will spacestation be rotating so manual docking won't be too easy Personally I found the docking experience in the old Elite games (C64/Amiga500) very frustrating at first, but very rewarding once I mastered it.

    Space-station docking and ship size?

    From what I have seen ships can dock inside a space station, though does that apply to all space-craft? I am just finding it hard to imagine some of the juggernauts actually docking inside a space station, given their size. Has there been by thought given how the size of a vehicle impacts its...
