    Need to jump 36 ly using Cobra Mk III

    I was hunting bounties in Jalabon when I accidentally shot the wrong ship (earning a bounty on me), eventually took aggro and was shot down. I was able to rebuy in the station I was carted off to (The Sepuchre), but can't make the trip back to Jalabon since every time I try to plot a route, it's...

    Why are player interdictions so impossible to evade?

    I don't know if there's a mechanic that I'm not aware of, I'm a fairly new player. But I just got interdicted and instantly killed by another Commander. During the interdiction, I stayed in the circle almost the entire time, but despite that the red progress bar went up far faster than I could...

    FSD Ranges

    Given the Galaxy size and how much of it has been discovered with the numbers of players, past, present and future, this game will reach "end of life" before we make a significant dent in what is there to discover...

    Beginners question about a "strange" Neutron boost experience

    Hello, First post here, please be gentle! ;) I've been exploring with my DBX for a while now, currently in the Sagittarius-Carina arm, but so far I've always avoided Neutron boosts. So today I thought I'd try it, just to overcome my fears of entering that jet... Maybe I did something wrong...

    Hypercruise

    Hi people I want an HYPERCRUISE, please.... When we travel across the galaxy reaching far destinations, we have to jump, and jump and jump and rejump to stars again and again an then again [zZzZz] . I really love to explore the galaxy and i love to apprehend its vertiginous vastness before...

    Those GUYS HAD to be Geniuses...

    Neutron experiments by a space mad explorer

    This post is essentially a culmination of some experiments I have been doing. At first it started out as a question on the fleetcomm squad chat. What happens when you neutron jump at 1%? Somewhere along the way it balooned into many experiments with people asking various things for me to test...

    Request: allow FSS Scanner use whilst charging FSD

    For me, the most frustrating part of the new exploration mechanics is that you can't use the FSS Scanner whilst charging your FSD for a hyperspace jump. This means that looking out for interesting bodies whilst on a long-distance honk-scoop-jump journey takes much longer than using the old...

    Engineers How do we get Elvira Martuuk to level 5 on FSD engineering?

    I've now upgraded the FSD on 8 ships to level 4 with Elvira Martuuk on Khun (not with pinned blueprints). How do we get her to pop the level five options? Is there a combination of things that we can do/provide her to get off of the level 4 plateau?

    Newcomer / Intro Too close to a star, entering Supercruise is interrupted by overheating

    Hi! I was dumb enough to exit from supercruise to check a signal near a star. It was interesting but now my system is at 54% heat, can't engage supercruise to go away so my hair is waving at brutal 220. And the 54% heat is permanent. Every unsuccessful tries to engage supercruise cause damage...

    Misjumps in ED?

    Has anyone manged to miss jump in Elite Dangerous other than Hyperdictions? I understand the new fsd tech is supposedly more reliable than older drives, but I am wondering if misjumps can happen at all.

    Fast Charge FSD Engi 100% Broken (bug)

    Yeah anyone else notice how all this upgrade does is increase your heat, and boost the optimal mass a little bit? There is absolutely no change to the speed of the charge lol

    "Bootleg" Corvas Versions

    So Corvas. There are a bunch of voices for them and although I didn't feel like picking up one for money yet. This might change if we get a nice addition to the pack: An Alternative Version, that emphasises "Friendshipdrive" for FSD. It should be come free with any bougth Voice pack and you get...

    [Game Design] [Feature Request] Frigates - Player-Run Capital Ships

    I've come to the conclusion that what Elite is missing in the realm of Very Large Ships is Even Bigger Ships. Those top tiers of faction rank are empty and don't have much of a purpose at the moment, so why not kill a few birds with one stone? To be clear, these would not simply be...

    An end to long Haul FSDs

    I think it's time frontier provide the players a way to travel to any planet we wish using the FSD, still keeping the range as is. With the new partial cargo mission system it does make the grind of flying from port to planet and so on longer, partly because of going back to collect the...

    AI Bounty hunters. - Aren Geesus?

    I'm not sure this observation is in the right place, but here goes! I accept a lot of contracts that end up with bounty hunters/assassins being sent to eliminate me! I don't very often oblige them with combat, being very often outgunned, so I outfly them in the "mini-game". This has the...

    Guardian Orbs. Do they Exist anymore?

    I thay done multiple thousand light year trips across multiple new sites. I have spent hours driving around and hours flying around (yes you can detect the guardian items flying low and slow in a fighter) and found any number of caskets, urns and relics but no orbs. I read in these forums that...

    How To Cure Griefing (and other great ideas)

    There seems to be some debate on how much of the new C&P system is a response to player "griefing", but I think there may be a better way to "cure" this problem that's logical, easy to implement, PvP-friendly, and brings meaning to system security state. Disable FSD Interdictors in HiSec...

    Anomalous FSD behavior in certain star system?

    Hey there, while jumping around in the core, I've found a star system that has some very interesting FSD behavior when jumped to, and I'm wondering if this is a known occurrence. This system consists of two stars with similar spectrum, but they both have EXACTLY the same solar mass, at 1,5...

    Guardian Frameshift Drive

    So we're gradually getting the ability to outfit our ships with Guardian tech (powerplant, distributor, weapons) - but there are some gaps in what's available. Someone did suggest that prismatic shields might be derived from Guardian tech, and I like that idea. But what about the frameshift...

    Accidental Advance in Reverse Engineering Thargoid Warp Drives

    In researching Thargoid jumpdrive technology, the first breakthrough was discovered by accident. I was a crewman aboard the ship that saw it happen. The first tests seemed fruitless. Something about them had piqued the interest of a pair of interceptors, who dropped down to see clearly...

    SOLVED: How do I quick repair the FSD?

    There's a repair option in the modules screen on the right panel. The repair button has always been red and uninteractable. If there's some specific materials needed, if so, what are they? If not, how is the repair button used? Thank you in advance.

    FSD 100% hyperspace jump failure rate at 78% Integrity

    Title says it all. I supercharged at a WD, my FSD is down to 78 after a few charges because it takes ten percent per charge whenever I try, which is bull in and of itself. I can understand a couple points, but not 10 per charge. Anyway, as the title suggests, I am receiving a 100% hyperspace...

    Best WD classes for Boosting

    Alright, I'm still new to Boosting, but I was curious if the class of white dwarf, has an effect of the length of the cone and the turbulence on entry? I feel like it might, because every time I've been to a standard DA class, the cone is relatively short distance out from the exclusion zone...

    FSD Booster as sub slot module

    Can we introduce module sub slots to power plant, FSD and shield generators? the recently added FSD booster takes up an entire module slot, can we have this changed. Can the FSD have sub-slots maybe allow 2 maximum, allowing us to insert the FSD booster into the main FSD module. Make it work...

    A new way to travel

    Next update is 3.1 + Guardian FSD Booster Refunds

    Regarding the bugged Guardian FSD Booster, FDev is giving refunds for those who unlocked it. The in-game notification also confirms that the next update will be 3.1: It's also worth mentioning that FDev might be moving to their new HQ this month, so that might play a role in why they can't...

    Change FSD boosters from internal to utility

    While FSD boosters are temporary removed from game for revision/fix I suggest some (relatively easy to implement) changes. Because when these modules will be released in their final version it will be too late to change anything. Make them utility modules instead of optional-internal. Change...

    Guardian Frame Shift/Black Hole Technology

    Here's a little idea for the wizards at Frontier. Guardian FSD technology for CMDRs. What would it do? Perhaps it could jump further, at a cost of heat and power, or perhaps travel far more efficiently with less fuel, allowing for longer journeys before scooping fuel. Or perhaps it could be...

    Re-outfit stations with Emergency FSD drives

    So with the current Thargoid incursion into the bubble and whatever other armageddon FDev has planned for the future I have a proposal: Outfit stations with an Emergency FSD drive. I am aware that stations such as Orbis and Ocelus are deployed via an FSD at the back, then the FSD is replaced...

    Frame Shift Drive: New vs Old Engineers

    Greetings CMDRs! So I’m 30,000 LY from home right now, a little over a quarter of the way into circumnavigating the Milky Way counter-clockwise. Point being, I’m too far to try out the new engineering since 3.0 dropped. I apologize if another forum addresses this but I couldn’t find anything...

    SHIP JUMP RANGES

    I think that all FSD ranges should be doubled, reason is in most ships when armed jump range drops to 20ly, and if exploring in an ASP would be able to get 80ly. I spent 2 of my nights jumping to travel the 5000ly for engineer unlock, I work in the daytime, I would explore more if it wasn't so...

    FSD redirect feature

    Simply put there is two things when FSDing around the galaxy. 1. I would like to hope that in the near future instead of the FSD default taking us to the star of each system that we could have the internal option fuel permitting of course to choose planets to save on some space travel, as we...

    Emergency FSD Jump, and a potential to fix combat logging

    I would be lying if my feature request didn't come from other sci-fi games/movies/books/tvshows. So the Frameshift Drive works like a warp engine from star trek, it allows us to create a Alcubierre bubble around the ship and relatively reach FTL speeds. This is Emergency Jump, it quickly...

    Newcomer / Intro FSD is really slow sometimes...

    I have no idea why the FSD doesn't take the same time to "warm" up or to start every time... Sometimes, get out of a station and get out of mass locked and launch FSD and it is pretty quick. Other times, it is REALLY slow! Getting out of a battle also extremely slow (no damage to it or...

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, I'm new and this forum is massive, information overload. I understand that you can upgrade your fsd in space stations but it doesn't seem like it does a whole bunch to improve your range. I may just not be seeing the higher level equipment. As far as I...
