    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...

    CRISIS! In a park full of Dino's... where's the action?

    I wanted to post this as I feel like this game has so so so much potential, but seeing the content of the latest patch I feel like the ongoing development of this game isn't heading in the right direction. I understand that fleshing out the number of dinosaurs and allowing the players to engage...

    C&P Refinement suggestion.

    Strap in guys, its a bit of a long post! As we all know the new C&P is...well honestly a bit of a mess. The previous system didn't stop grief, but also didnt do much in terms of adding to it, beside the occasional friendly fire, and needing to warp in and out of the system. Now we've got a...

    Elite Dangerous' flight model is severely flawed

    I have to say that the absolute biggest offender in this game is the flight mechanics; they are so severely broken and boring. I love simulation but above all a video game should be fun.. that is the first principle of why people play them and can escape in video game worlds. Otherwise, people...

    More Wing Mission Nerfs - AKA We work hard for our money

    The fact is, FDev has a history of failing to properly balance and incentivize both solo and especially multiplayer activities, and we have all seen this happen time and time again. Something pays too high to the wrong rank of player, and instead of redesign the mechanics of credit payouts to...

    Quality of Life: When Themes and Mechanics Collide

    JWE has clearly had a lot of love poured into it to make it operate the way it does. The attention to detail is impressive in every respect. Jurassic Park was the reason I started drawing, and later started modeling in 3D. It's my favourite film, and in a roundabout way, it got me into the games...

    Hear me out...

    When will we see thargoids pop in and out of instances like in Haz Rez while bounty hunting or mining? Picture it.....going about your business when all of a sudden the area is given a "unknown slip space signature" warning. Scouts start pouring in attacking anything within the vicinity NPC...

    Park Status mechanics

    So, I’m sure a lot of us play Planet Coaster, right? Well, as you know, you have the option to open and close a park. I was wondering if this might be in the game, since it’s quite important... You can’t keep your park open when a Spinosaurus is eating guests, am I right? I really hope that...

    Limpets are Awful - Loot Collection Woes

    After doing lots of material scouring about the cosmos for every bit of goodness I can use for synthesis, as well as engineering it occurred to me. LIMPETS ARE AWFUL! It often takes longer to collect loot with limpets than it takes to liberate them from either the bum of an Anaconda, or a...

    Long Term Ideas for the Future of ED

    I am unsure if ideas like these have been suggested (or are publicly known as being planned to be added), I thought that they might be interesting ideas that would bring some good gameplay and interactions to Elite Dangerous. I am going to reference Eve Online (even though I did not play the...

    Plebeian: Safe

    Current: No fire zones out to mass lock range or greater, enemies mean nothing after you drop or before jump. Interdictions that result in entering orbital cruise no longer pancake you and them, instead the tether breaks. Practically infinite shields and hull. NPCs always warn you about...

    Proposed Changes to Crime/Punishment

    Reposting this from the official thread to here, because the other thread is not intended for user/user interaction. I'm curious as to peoples thoughts on this. Understand the post is a general concept, but I think it conveys the gist. Apologize about the length. I have to echo some of the...

    What currently happens if you fly into the atmosphere?

    I was curious as nobody seemed to have tried supercruisin' as close as they could into planets and suns, then riding impulse into the atmosphere. What happens? I know atmospheric skimming isnt implemented yet but I'm curious because of my plans for a starship race. My race idea involves racing...
