    How Open-only would balance ED

    Disclaimer - I am NOT advocating for Open-Only, I'm just making an observation. Today I decided to join the Tritium Truckers, in hopes to make some meager credits to help me slowly progress to my goal of someday owning a fleet carrier. The best prices were between two outposts, so I configured...

    Suggestion for next major update: Economy

    Hi there, I'm not sure if these suggestions are read by developers, but if they are, I've been sparked with an idea with the release of fleet carriers. Considering that these carriers are movable space stations more or less, my suggestion is to integrate a fully flesh-out economy. I know...

    Sale of goods

    Sorry, maybe I'm writing on the wrong subject. I believe that today's sale is not done right. Flew in a ship and I have only 100 goods in the hold then selling at the 1st price. If I have 500 goods in the hold and want to sell only 100, the price is not the same. Why is that ? I think it's a...

    Add a High Value Commodity Only Tradable In Open

    Not only would it make trading a more viable money maker, it would revitalize the pirating scene, make traders bother engineering and adding defenses to their ships, and maybe even encourage traders to have bodyguards or travel in groups. Seems like such a simple thing would add a lot of life to...

    Indirect manipulation of Sell to Market prices via behind-the-curtain BGS state tuning?

    Hello, Here's an idea. Given that (to my knowledge - happy to be corrected ) :- a) There is no direct way for players to trigger Public Holiday. b) Pirate Attack has a better chance of occurring if certain conditions are met, but again there is no direct way for players to trigger it. c)...

    Franchise Mode: Min/Max CC Listing Values

    As we have all seen with the current Gorilla challenge, the market in Franchise mode can def be , and people are taking advantage of that. It doesn't help that this challenge doesn't promote putting them back in the market, since you want to release them. It makes it a sellers market, and...

    Trading price lock

    I strongly believe the game needs a price lock for trading animals. Here is what I mean by that: I'm adopting an ostrich for 20 leaves. I should be unable to immediatly sell the ostrich for anything higher than 20 leaves. Reason: People are lurking at the trade center looking for a cheap animal...

    Newcomer / Intro How Does Market Determine "High Demand" ?

    I just started doing some serious trading with the new tools, and I'm confused. I'm seeing things in the market where the demand over is 300, but these items are not flagged as "high demand". However, other items with a demand of 60 is considered high demand. Is this bugged? I've been using the...

    Suggestion: add cargo which could damage pirates when they picked it up.

    My step-dad just had this idea. It’s basically the interstellar-piracy version of dye packs in money/stores. Pirate interdicts you, you’re in a slow and weak ship. But you planned for this, and you’ve got [x] tons of live explosives disguised as valuable goods. You drop those, pirate scoops...

    Discovery Scanner Changes (simple idea that won't happen.)

    Is's obvious ED is going to do this change regardless of we like it or not, so, I am not going to address that as it's pointless. But, I have an idea, like it or hate it-I don't care, but I figured I'll put this out here to discuss. Change the Intermediate Discovery scanner to do what the...

    Repairing Stations

    I'm certain this won't affect many commanders. Most would rather post up with Adele's Armada and ruin those helpful few at the CGs or blast away at pirates in a Rez but, to digress, a few suggestions on repairing stations: Wheres the waste? Repairing stations don't produce ANYTHING. This is, an...

    Feature Request: Colonization missions

    So I haven't been able to find answer to this question so I thought I would try here. Do data delivery missions/courier(data delivery) missions give credit toward trade rank?

    Galaxy map trade feature lacks context and short-term memory

    So in the "I wish I had had more time for beta" section, it feels like the new "commodity finder" feature on the galaxy map is pretty howyadoin'. Trying to find personal weapons, it turns out that the map has very little idea about legality. It will happily show a station where stuff is banned...

    Passenger Mission Arrival Point Algorithm needs to apply to Commodities Market upon return

    One of the side effects of the algorithm for rewarding passenger missions based upon the arrival point distance was that it killed off the commodities trade for many commanders. Thus, imho, when the algorithm returns it needs to apply to prices on the Commodities Market as well. CMDR Justinian...
