I've been grinding this game for almost a year, so most of the new doesn't effect the way I play, If we're all going to end with same results then just give engineering the axe, tell the Fdev his idea was decent, but after closer inspection, and community feedback that his goal only caters to 1 type of player (grinders), what about the players that don't have 20 or more hrs a week to grind do they not matter too? either leave it the way it was where as everyone can benefit from the least amount of mindless grind as possible (make it fun not a fdev cyber D sucking contest) or just give it the axe. (100 units of each item is not enough with your new system.)
Also fix it so when psn is down but you still have an Internet connection you can still play the dam game. Not even solo mode...? Training but not solo, I guarantee that pc players do not experience this.
Why can't you send your ship to previously visited systems, or send a ship to a previously visited system/s? Make it so! I don't mind travelling the stars at all, it would nice to send my fighting ships to a location log out and when the ridiculous time to transfer said ship is done log back in and play the game.
There is probably so much I've missed discussing or ranting about, I love the game already, but a few things need some work to make it even better.
And is it to much to ask for hud colour customization for console?

Everything but engineering looks like an improvement, it's only catering to the player with unlimited time on their hands like myself, what about the player who doesn't have X amount of grinding materials time, they used to be able to get decent results and fly away happy with a few rolls of the rng dice, there's nothing unique about the new system if we all end with the same results at a way higher grind cost, just remove engineering if you had that many complaints over the old system for the minimal grind it is.
If you know where to look you will never find the current system a grind at all, I don't mind the current system, it works, and I have time to do other things in the game that are fun, from what I've seen with the new system players will be wasting their precious time in a fdev's cyber D sucking contest to achieve the same mod as every other player, seems pointless to me especially for experimental rolls, now they force you to cup the balls too...na I'm out bro, not playing that game.
Trade market? But you can't use your hard earned Space-bucks to buy said materials... everything else has a price-tag... except for materials and data..., no no you can trade your materials and data, have these fdev's even played this game? What's the point of having Space-bucks other than to buy ships and parts and pay off a bounties and fines?
Is too much to ask for Hud colour customization?
If you have visited a system or let's say became allied to be fair, why can you not send a ship or even the ship you are in if you have a crew-men to that system/station/s, log out for the duration of transportation and then log back in and be ready to do what you need to?
On console if psn is down but the Internet is good I can't even play the game, not even solo mode... there are free to play games on the PS4 that work without psn connection come on guys what's the deal? Yet another win for pc players who don't experience this(might time to switch back to pc gaming).
 
I'm enjoying much of what concerns me and the way I play, not too sure about the 'new?' Thargoids, I popped into a couple of instances and in the first 4 cops v 4 Thargoids and the cops wiped then out 4-0 I was observing as I'm unarmed, on the second instance just 2 cops v 4 Thargoids, the cops held their own and took out 2 Thargoids before succumbing to battle fatigue and falling leaving me on my lonesome, I was able to duck and dodge while they sprayed multi shots at me even giving one a hefty clout... they got a bit peeved and started using the toxic missiles... unkind really, I played ball a little longer then left the field to get a plaster and a cup of water, they didn't give chase and my hull was stabilised at I think at 50-60%... in the station, not really that scary for a bloke that doesn't do combat and has an unarmed ship to boot.

second point that I think I'll need to adjust myself for is coming out of the hyperspace tunnel and... no throttle, I normally jump out an continue full speed through skimming and honking, so arriving with it all turned down sort of spoils the rhythm.... (yes I know I can push the button but I didn't use to have to)

That said.

New Engineering... some love it some hate it... I'm fine with it, I'll keep my(+182.7) surface scanner until they take it away and then make another one under the new system... I ain't bovvered!
I do like the fact that I can finally continue to collect the rares even if they're no use to me because they are now!... I can swap em... thanks for that FD oh yeah and the new limit too... good!

Loving the new Planetary surface look and the dust seems have changed for the better too... I don't know it just holds better.
and the new rocks too, not just tiny, medium, and huge but others too... it makes life downside even better.

Thanks for putting lives above gold by increasing the amount of wedge for returning the 'coffins' to the Rescue Contact, I understand that you are all busy with important stuff but if you could find a way to if only occasionally give a brief back story on one or two of the guys and galls we rescue it would add depth... just make sure it ain't the same one every time... I'm sure if you were to ask nicely some of the fans here would love to make up a bit of history for a lone, pair, group of unfortunates that ended up needing rescue after jumping into that box, so all you'd have to do FD is find a way of nailing it on.

I'll have to try that wing cargo haulin task soon... looks interesting, I'm wondering though can it be done solo (solo ship) over a couple of trips or does it all have to leave the station at the same time?
 
"Access to port services including ship transferring/storage/retrieval/selling are limited if the player docks in a 'wanted' ship (bounties and fines) applicable in that jurisdiction, and where transfer is possible, the cost is increased"


Unbelievable , FDev's tweaks players / ship movement BUT without allowing the most important Quality of Life gameplay improvement

which is "Allowing players to move from Ship to Ship without Cargo following"


Storage

There's nothing unbelievable about it; Frontier don't want Cmdr's hording goods.
I think that's a silly notion as it's a gamey/fake limitation; but, it is what it is.

"Single most important" Quality of Life gameplay improvement for YOU, perhaps. You'll find as you sift through this forum that others have said the same thing but have very different ideas of what constitutes "single most important," different from you and from each other. Might want to consider that.

Most important? For whom? There are many potential QoL improvements; being able to horde commodities, doesn't strike me as a QoL improvement, as much as a convenience factor for commodity hoarding and or risk free transfer of cargo via ship transfer. For example. I'm sure that's not what you mean, tho.

No....you don't mean people would take dozens of delivery missions to the same place, fill up a few T9's with cargo and transfer it all remotely...never.

The single biggest QOL for me would be the ability to place temporary waypoints on the planetary surface, so storing ships with cargo is pretty much at the bottom of the list, I just wonder who's list they are going to follow?
 
Anyone know where a Freedom Class Survey Vessel MLK-0015 is? I am on the beta server in Altair around Darkes Hollow in the same spot as in the Elite Dangerous: Beyond - Chapter One Content Livestream - Part 2 video and it isn't here. Thanks

I believe there's one in the BETA system (Wyrd IIRC).
 
You're right, they should be charging you to store goods. That's what happens in real life :)
I would be 100% in favour of that.

If you want to store goods; you can .. however, you "rent" storage space based on the size of the ship(s) you have at dock; for example: Over a 24 hour (real-time) period: 100,000 credits for a small landing pad, 1, 000,000 for a medium, and 10,000,000 for a large.

Not seeing it, thank you though
I remember seeing one in orbit around a planet, and I really want to say in the BETA system.
Sorry I can't be much help though.

Yes, in real life, you earn money, and then you pay for things annually. However, this would mean that if you can't get to play for an extended period of time, you get bankrupt. Same for real life, but you manage somehow, because it's a must. I really do not want to manage it in a game, however, and i don't care how much of it is 'simulation'. Nothing that's supposed to be a relaxation should force people into such ultimatum (log in and play or you'll lose something). That's enough stress for real life.

Has anyone found the "Size 4 Meta Alloy Hull Reinforcement Package" ?
UPDATE: Never mind, they are experimental.

However it's implemented; I think a hefty price should be paid for the right to store cargo-laden ships.

I never said anything about 2nd Accounts and hording commodities, all Ive mentioned is the stupidly of having Cargo following the player around.

"Allowing players to move from Ship to Ship without Cargo following" such a simple Quality of Life, gameplay improvement request !

You have a 700t cargo ship full of goods.
You then jump to your other cargo ship and fill that with goods.
You jump to another cargo ship.. and another.. and another.

I never said you said anything about hording commodities; but that's exactly what it would be used for; I was explaining (one possible reason) why we don't have it.
