    Join the 501st Joint Arcturus Wing Today!

    Greetings, Commanders! I recently started up a squadron called the 501st Joint Arcturus Wing on PC. The squadron shares the name of a player-created faction (though I did not create it) and both are based in the Arcturus system. What do we do/what are our goals? Right now is to take control...

    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...

    Ridiculous trading outlier - megaprofits for polymers.

    This is one of the weirdest trading glitches I’ve seen. Polymers, cheap plastics bought for 50cr/ton bring about 10k profit when sold at high tech. A million / run profit with a type-6 with no investment risk due yo cheap cargo. Makes cargo missions pointless, because just running plastic is...

    Purchase Button in Compare Mates Panel During Trading

    So I often use that compare mates button in the trading center when looking for new animals, but it's driving me nuts that I cannot purchase from that menu! Instead, I have to close out, which causes the page to refresh, and then I have to go back through the pages to find the animal I was just...

    Trading Animals

    It would be good to offer a "swap-shop" style within the market to allow similar animals to be traded (without cc or $ changing hands) with a focus on varied breeding Suggest that once your Zoo reaches a certain reputation you could sign-up to inter-Zoo agreements to swap animals for the...

    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...

    Ships Dolphin v ASP-X for Cargo/Passengers

    I'm currently exploring in a throwaway Hauler, but looking to upgrade to run passengers or cargo short range. Currently, my two vessels of choice are the Dolphin and the ASP-X. I've prototyped a build for both ships and found the ASP-X (unsurprisingly) to be a superior ship in almost every...

    Wing up with crew members or hire npc's

    When completing trade or other types of wing missions I think it would be good if I could make use of the hired crew or hire npcs to take along as part of the wing. They could use my spare engineered ships or have access to their own grades of ships for differing costs. They could be cast as...

    Today, Trading and smuggling, related to BGS transactions, are tagged by system source. For instance, if I mined 5 different material but from the same system, it would count as 1 transaction in the same system when I am selling them to BGS until I have emptied my cargo. In order to tied more...

    I propose to add to the game the possibility of trade between players. Below is a description of how this might look. So, now in the game we have some "goods" that are impossible to buy. First of all, I mean all things for ship engineering. Mechanical scrap, hybrid capacitors, phase alloys...

    Player to Player trade

Including modules, ships everything, some players could make a living out of engineering ships modules etc. The players who don't want to Grind for everything could buy some stuff from players. It would also bring players together...

    Better trade system

    Dear Frontier, For God's sake, please fix the current trading system! I pick up 3-4 trade missions, I go to pick up cargo, then go back to the original system, and I'm interdicted immediately. Which is OK, but as soon as I evade, there's the next f...ing pirate. I counted 11 interdiction...

    More Depth to Trading in the BGS

    Introduction So as of now, trading in BGS only affects the controlling faction of the station. If you think about this, you come two one of 2 conclusions: a) The controlling faction gets a monopoly in all industries on a station. b) The controlling faction is in charge of the port and flow of...

    Frontier add EDDB to the game

    I think is about time that Elite made its own EDDB, I'm really surprised that they haven't add it yet. why they haven't done this at this point is beyond me.

    Adding player to player trading

    This would greatly improve the game I think and also add a bit of player interactions. Just adding an ingame player trading where you can pay with credits would be huge. Also, it would give players an incentive to get materials, earn money etc.

    Finishing the Basics.

    This game's most foundational systems are absolutely astounding. The flight models feel more real than anything else I've ever flown with a joystick, and the immersive factor is incredible. The scale is amazing, and flying to and fro really puts space travel into perspective. Watching the video...

    Does rare trading need a re-think FDEV?

    I spent quite a lot of time unlocking a permit to gain access to the rare goods at that station. However, there are two problems which would seem to spoil the whole process... 1. Limited quantity of the rare item (14 in this case) 2. Small profit margins given the amount of effort So, whilst...

    Delivery missions nerfed after patch-bug or feature?

    Anyone else noticed this? Prior to the patch, it was possible to make reasonable amounts of credits doing delivery missions, with numerous offerings in the 500k to 1.4m range. Now there are hardly any. Given that the balance appeared to be about right pre-patch for single player deliveries, I...

    Newcomer / Intro Are mines worthwhile for trading vessels in 3.0.3.

    Upon being interdicted, I usually beat the “mini-game” & outmaneuver the pirate or submit and boost away. No problem. However, I saw a vid on YouTube recently and a trader was using shock and regular mines to either blow up or to throw off the attacker. I thought I would try it out for fun but...
