    How will you plan out your zoo map?

    Hey all! So, riding the hype train here I aready think about what kind of Zoos I'd like to make. I like the realism-factor that guest don't like to see staff building and that there are stuff parks and such. But, honestly, my skills in planning a good map where everything fits and is logical...

    Dark/unexplored regions GalMap marker

    Hello, Can we have the visited regions/systems be highlighted using the galaxy Power Play "controlled", bubble-like markers? I think this would give deep-space explorers better visibility, and could help us increase that small percentage of (0.036%) visited systems, faster. This would be...

    Allow use of pre 3.3 Advanced Discovery Scanner

    Dear community. I do realise that such topic has already been done to death. But please, hear me out. I've ben reading forums for a while and found quite a group of those like me, missing the old method of carrying out exploration. To put things simple : jump, honk, glance at the system map...

    Orrery mode QOL tweak: Station Selection and Callouts

    The orrery map mode is awesome. Being able to view the orbital element information graphically makes it feel more real. However, as the map is currently the usability is somewhat limited. Station and ground port selection is very annoying. Either having to select stations blind from the left...

    Galaxy Map QOL Tweak: Allow Station Select from Galaxy Map w/o setting commod. filter

    The ability to select a route directly to a given starport/station/outpost from the galaxy map directly if we have the exploration data, and know the name of the desired destination would be a nice QOL improvement. Currently one needs to use a commodity filter to be able to select a route to a...

    Better visibility of Mapped planets and Terraformables status

    Could there be much clearer indication which planet has been mapped and which one not? Now this info/status is in System map under second tab. Choose each planet one by one and look same time left then again right, again and again... [where is it] Navigation panel could directly show...

    Route plotting - show us the failed route!

    Currently when Route Plotting fails, it just said "Route plotting failed" and doesn't show what it managed to calculate. Can you please change it so that it does? At least that would let us follow the route as far as it goes and then give us the option to recalculate and replot via an...

    Can we get better Galaxy Map search functionality please?

    Right now the search in Galaxy Map is extremely basic and awful. We have a ton of information there that we simply can't use to refine our exploration. We know all the stellar components of a system without exploring, we have the sector names and mass codes too (A-H). And we also know how far...

    System Map should have its own bindings section

    With 3.3 I set up joystick axis controls for FSS/DSS so I wouldn't keep having to switch between KBM and stick soo often while exploring. It actually worked so well that I revisited the thought of using my stick for navigation as well and... it didn't turn out any where near as good. Since both...

    Galaxy-Wide Cartographic Data for Explored Systems

    One of the changes to exploration in "Beyond" is the ability to see anything already discovered by another CMDR in our system map, while hiding those planets not yet discovered. I love this! However, this network of shared cartographic data needs to be "unlocked" for each and every system by...

    Mission target?

    Am i missing something? (Probably) but i seem to remember that when selecting a mission from the left tab and opening the galaxy map it took me to my destination and i just selectd it, now it seems i have to manually search for the system and select it that way? Any ideas?

    System map option to always center on currently select body

    A very small thing that's quite annoying in VR is that every time you open the system map it re-centers itself on the main star and you have to zoom out and slowly scroll over to a body to select it. It would be nice to have an option to always focus the view on the currently selected body when...

    Notable Stellar Phenomena really should be in FSS & map

    It is... a really big surprise to me, that as far as i know, Notable Stellar Phenomena appear in neither the discovery scanner, nor the system map. Only if you take an occasional look through the left-side navigation panel, which explorers rarely have reason to do, will you know if you have...

    More useful galaxy map.

    So, I sat down to play Elite today, on my xbox for a change, and quickly discovered that it was frustratingly difficult to tease any useful information out of the in-game map interface. When playing on the PC, we have quick and easy access to multiple third-party web sites to perform routine...

    Stored Modules Sorting and Bookmarks

    Can we please have a way to sort stored modules by size instead of price? price, for me at least, is irrelevant when swapping loadouts. Option to sort by Price, Size, or Type. Also, why is there a limit on bookmarks in the galaxy map?

    Hello Frontier! Now that the free update is about to be released I think it's time to talk about the non-free stuff because you are professionals and you deserve to earn the fair amout of money for your time and your work. I'm not here to ask for baby dinos or benches or trash cans or whatever...

    Possible Loacations for New and Bigger Maps in Las Cinco Muertes

    Galaxy map LAG

    Was just logging in today to gather intel on my next stretch, when I experienced the mother of all lags! Im about half way to Sag A, and have had lag before, but nothing like this. It was completely useless... So im wondering. Is there any trick to get around this? Ticking of every Star type...

    [Hey, Frontier!] What I want from the Galaxy Map

    I suppose I could post this to Suggestions but it'd probably get lost in there. But on coming back to ED one of the things that still really irritates me from an exploration point of view is the Galaxy Map. Basically, it's next to useless. We have a load of information available to us in the...

    Galaxy map, visited

    Hi. Instead of having the 'visited systems' as a tab on its own, could we get it just as a button to toggle on/off when using the other filters such as star class? On that note, it would be nice to be able to sort systems by weight in the same way you can sort by population.

    Galaxy Map in VR left/right stereo view isn't synchronized

    Anybody else have this problem? It makes the Galaxy Map rather disturbing to look at. It might not be by a lot, but it's noticeable when you pan the view. In addition, the grid jitters (I know that's a known bug, doesn't seem to be very prioritized, but oh well w/e).

    My Old Frontier Elite 2 Star Map (so much nostalgia!)

    Suggestion: Improve the trade experience on the Galaxy Map.

    Good morning: I am an experienced player who plays the game with Oculus and who likes to play, especially in the role of merchant. I have a lot of fun when I fly my beautiful Imperial Cutter and, I make trade routes of "single hop trade" and without looking for profitability beyond the one I...

    Make the Galaxy Map VR friendly and one more suggestion

    The Galaxy map is great on desktop but it is complete rubbish in VR. You can't type the name of systems in VR (unless you are a master typist who can type blind) because there is no virtual keyboard. This tech exists already in many games and would be easy to implement in ED. It would make the...

    [Suggestion] Add "Services" list to System Map Bookmark Tab Page

    In system map you can 'tab' on the display screen to a "Bookmarks" listing. It shows categories of planetary ports and Stations. If you added another category of "Services" below, it would speed finding certain services, vs. having to select each station/port bookmark and tab over to its...

    Galaxy map - please combine multiple filters

    Currently in beyond the galaxy map can only filter systems using one filter, either by state,security,government,services,etc. Whilst this is a good start it really doesn’t reduce the number of systems to a manage level when looking for anarchy systems with military economies for example...

    Odd Stars On Galaxy Map (Unreachable)

    [Suggestion] Starmap Binary planet distance.

    Hello all, I'll try to keep this short and sweet. While out in the black exploring I've run into an annoyance when it comes to binary planets giving the stat for the semi major axis of it's partner planet, however not it's semi major STELLAR axis. This seems like an annoying little le, however...

    Additional off screen controls.

    Like many I utilise Roccat's PowerGrid to extend my keyboard controls onto a couple of android devices. This thoroughly adds to immersion and investment in the gameplay. It's only real drawback for me is that it provides no feedback from the game data/conditions. What I would like to suggest...

    Material Traders and the Galaxy Map filters

    My suggestions pertain to using the Galaxy Map to find Material Traders. There are two suggestions here that can be implemented separately from each other, but I do strongly recommend implementing both. (1) First, having Material Traders only show up in your in-game Galaxy Map when you...

    VR panels (galaxy & system map, outfitting etc) QoL pass

    I know that VR player base may be limited but for me this is a number one issue that actually stops me from playing ED on a regular basis. After experiencing VR I can't force myself go back to playing on flat screen. But in VR this issue is making me quit after a short while. For me it's nausea...

    Ability to turn off star lines in Galaxy Map without disabling jet cone boost - Quality of Life fix

    Please, we have the option to turn off the grid in the Galaxy Map, so can't you add one to turn off the green star lines? When you have a long range ship it becomes a real mess. I can't see the colours of the systems nearby due to all the green lines. I really don't see the purpose in having...

    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...

A planetary outpost on Hollatja 2. No...

    The Bookmark function is broken? Can't create or remove bookmarks at all anymore.

    When in the Galaxy map, the button looks normal, but clicking it does nothing - either to create or delete. When in a System map, the button has the "processing" animation indefinitely - doesn't change after 10 minutes either. Is this a known issue? Is there a work-around / fix? Do I need to...
