    Sustainable Barnacle Harvesting: Call to Action

    This is a call to action to all Meta Alloy enthusiasts. Please only harvest ripe pods. They are the only ones that drop Meta Alloys. Not only will this save you time, but it may very well contribute to the preservation of this versatile and increasingly sparse resource. This mindless destruction...

    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...

    The Elite Dangerous Storyline

    The Children of Raxxla would like to share with you an analysis of the very complicated storyline. We have uncovered the extent of the corruption brought about by the corporations, and expanded on a popular Thargoid theory. We touch upon Raxxla, The Dark Wheel, The Club... everything is linked...

    If Guardians were alive, would they be for or against humans?

    Greetings Commanders! ;) After going to one of the Guardian Structures for blueprints, a thought came into my mind: If Guardians were alive, would they be hostile towards us like Thargoids, or could we possibly become allies and fight the Thargoids together? What do you think?

    The Guardians Are Dumb And Probably Weren't Very Attractive

    What do we know about the Guardians? We know they built dumb structures covered in triangles. Who else does that? That's right - people who build playing card houses out of cards that have been cut in half. And that's stupid and crazy. There's more. Guardians are so dumb they picked a fight with...

    ED and ETs

    Hi, So we've got the Thargoids, currently attacking humans. 1) Where are the peaceful, friendly ETs in ED? 2) Perhaps the Thargoid story line can evolve to an end to the war... how about adding gameplay to work towards peace? A diplomatic effort of some kind, for example? A learning of each...

    AX Ammunition Synthesis for Standard Weapons

    Just an idea I had to allow for Thargoids to be a bit less optional. The problem with the Thargoids, is that they require dedicated weapons to take down (except scouts), which means that CMDRs who don't have any of that currently equipped, stand zero chance of anything except escape, so you...

    I was wondering: does anyone else think that Thargoid surface site looks like giant thargoid ships?

    Hello,all: When I went to the site in HIP 16753, I zoomed out in free camera mode and the whole base looked like a giant ship buried in the ground. What are everyone(s) thoughts as to what the surface bases might be/ or what they might be used for? Thanks, A logical argument

    Help me out on learning about xeno hunting/interactions?

    I apologise in advance for any ignorance. Is there a guide to Thargoid hunting? Or ways I can interact with Thargoids and earn credits at the same time? I mean the ship types and such, weapons I need, the things I need to do in order to hunt Thargoids? Its been an end goal of mine to do so...

    Request for Thargoid/Guardian materials to be tradable at material traders.

    Since there’s currently very little use for these materials beyond unlocking tech broker modules and restocking specialty weapons, I think it would be very good to be able to exchange them for more useful materials. If possible (within the game’s programming, I mean), you could make exchanges...

    Thargoids should appear with a notice in local mission board, like CG´s now galaxy wide, for defence

    Thargoid attacks against stations and other installations sould be predicted beforehand "through new top secret technological advances", and be spotted say 7-14 days before they start/finish allowing to organize defending better against them. Could be just locally on top of a mission board like...

    Where are all the Thargoids?

    I wanted a bit of scout action for me and my npc, as I have done before.... I searched the gal maps for an incursion sate system and as of today there are 2 of them (south of the bubble). I jumped to one of them, FSS scanned the system - not a single NHSS. From previous recollection...

    My Future Thargoid Fantasy

I don't expect FDev to pick up even...

    Why should anyone be fighting Thargoids?

    Now, before you scream at me, the title is a rhetorical question, but i want to start a discussion, a pretty important one i think. So let's be real... for one of the most dangerous activities in the game other than PVP, we're really not being rewarded anything for resisting the Thargoids. I...

    add a number next to thargoid barnicles.

    when you surface scan a planet that has biological or geological phenomena ,the locations are numbered, but thargoid barnacles are not. making it difficult to discern where you have and have not gone to. "but why not just session hop"you may ask. well i happen to like flying to different locations.

    Besieged Bubble?

    I just returned from a 6 month expedition and was surprised to find life in the bubble going on as normal while it is supposed to be under attack by a superior alien race!. Shouldn't there be some sign of this like military blockades and galnet warnings.? Its the worse defence attempt in history.

    Almost 2019, thargoids are still not worth anything.

    If you look at it in comparison to pretty much every activity in Elite, from doing exploration, general mission running, hauling cargo, mining, combat.... if you then look at in terms of how much materials/data you can get, and how much credits you can get, all of them have at least something...

    Anti-Xeno combat is still totally busted.

    So, now that the bubble has been attacked for the first time since the release of the new conflict zones, i thought i would go and check out the new conflict zones in a well modified Krait 2 with guardian weapons and... i was disappointed again, met with a very unbalanced and pretty much...

    Ideas to Buff/Much Further Implement Powerplay

    1. Allow Empire and Federation associated powerplay activities to contribute to the Empire or Federation rank grinds for ship access. 2. DRASTICALLY increase merit gain from all sources (and add more sources) so that the merit grind for rating 5 is actually even remotely worth it for every...

    Thargoids in BGS May Break Game

    My main concern around Thargoids being added to the bgs revolves around Frontiers favorite thing to nerf: credits. My anti-xeno anaconda cost upwards of 550 million credits. That was just the cost of the ship. I then had to engineer it to grade 5 from thrusters to hull to get it be survivable...

    4 AX gun limit is unnecessary

    Thargoid fights are HARD, really hard. After doing a bunch of engineering and grinding for Guardian stuff to make their special guns, i hauled my Krait over to the Pleiades and looked for the right signal sources for a cyclops. After several failures, I actually finally managed to kill one and...

    The "Quality of Life" Adjustment That's Not Even on the Roadmap, even as Thargoids Loom Larger

    The "Quality of Life" Adjustment That's Not Even on the Roadmap, even as Thargoids Loom Larger TL;DR: Having now seen some of the coming AX Conflict Zones, the implementation of these sites annoys me even more than the already exasperating Thargoid implementation. And what the evolution of this...

    Attacked Station Trade Ranking

    Hello, I have a simple question. Is rescuing passengers from attack stations by Thargoids an efficient way to increase my Trade Rank? I just reached Tycoon rank a couple days ago, and the last hour I've been stacking rescue passenger missions in my new Type 9 but arn't seeing the bar increase.

    New Mission Types for use in the new Thargoid incursion system states

    How dangerous is Elite?

    Hi, I haven't played Elite for about 2 years, not since I crashed my ship on the return journey after several months of exploration, then got griefed in my T6, and my X52 joystick broke and the customer support basically didn't want to know...

Now, the first thing I found out...
