    Economy and Security status sliding scales

    Hello Cmdrs I've been searching and found not much on the sliding scales for economy and security. For example: For the faction 'The Dark Wheel' the Economy marker in on the 'Investment' part of the scale and the security marker is just about on the none part of the scale. However, For the...

    Beyond Changes

    I was thinking what changes frontier could make to really build on the reality with their Beyond changes . I think they should make resources finite on planets and meteors that way as the less common items become rarer close to home people will have to use the new exploration tools to find...

    Dear FDEV. Honest experience with your piece of "economy" balance. From a relatively fresh player.

    Dear FDEV. Honest experience with your piece of "economy" balance. From a relatively fresh player. TLDR: Relatively new player who avoided exploits as much as I could. Unhappy with the fact that risky missions pay less than safe ones, which makes grind boring and exploits attractive. ZERO F's...

    Smeaton Orbital run is dead, now what?

    The Smeaton Orbital passenger mission runs were fun, and many of us stacked up the credits. The Galaxy is changing, however, and we must change with it. What's the next big thing?! I am not sure I remember how to do anything else besides make billions. What are you guys plans now? Are there...

    There is an Illness in the Game

    You won't hear it on Galnet, you won't get more than a hint of it on YouTube, but yet there it is. Much like the flu outbreak in this country, it is there; unable to compete with such headlines as "Thargoid pays hush money to ****star", but lethal in it's own right nonetheless. We are all...

    Beluga Liner weird fitting issue?

    You *can* fit a 5A shield to your Beluga liner, but because all size 5 slots are *restricted*, you'd have to stick it into a size 6 slot. This single issue makes it pointless to buy the Beluga Liner, unless you want to baby business/first class customers. (I can't imagine NPC's as VIPs... NPC...

    Demand/Production/Stock price dilemma, and Smuggling issues - Save the Merchants!

    Hey pilots. I was thinking for a while about how galactic economy works. I was first playing E: D with (don't laugh) Spice and Wolf in mind – a story about two smart people using their wit to turn in some tasty profit. So I did cargo runs, and deliveries, and smuggling, tried piracy (heh) and...

    Please correct the glaring mistake in REZ ecology

    Lately my enjoyment of Elite has been marred because the following thought had entered my mind: How is it possible that in a belt three miners are mining, while there's a constant stream of pirates trying to prey upon them for part(!) of their produce. What drives these pirates? And who is...

    [= New Space MMORTS: Novus Aeterno - Releasing after Kickstarter =]

    Fellow Frontiersmen, I was frustrated by the lack of a true MMORTS that emcompased space empires and though EVE and Sins of a Solar Empire and Homeworld etc are great ... We've created a new sci-fi MMORTS - Novus AEterno, and launched a Kickstarter to polish it for our public release (it's...
