    When two maps collide, fanboys and enjoyers (mass effect)

    I'm sure after this many years, the particular topic has been ran into the ground but I haven't been able to find any actual evidence of our actual (ED) Milky Way and the Mass Effect version being combined to get a reference for how they may mix. My friends and I have also been talking about...

    Hello! First of all: I apologize for my english. Its horrible, I know, but hopefully you'll understand what Im trying to write. ^^ Aaand hopefully it get noticed too. As I burried myself in the game and I do really enjoy it more than original JWE - the challenges of the Chaos Theory...

    Custom rout plotting and saved routs

    I'm not so brash as to think I'm the first one to think of this but it may be good to hash it out, some folks from FDEV might lend some insight as well. In a time and age where we can have a computer plot a rout for us through around 400 billion stars and in the blink of an eye be off scooping...

    A Visual Guide to the Creation of Heightmaps

    Hello folks! In my other thread, I already shared a bunch of heightmaps I created. If you want to create custom heightmaps yourself but aren't quite sure how that works, you have come to the right place. I had way too much time on my hands and prepared a small tutorial. I hope someone will find...

    Sharing My Heightmaps

    Hi everyone! First of all, please excuse any grammatical or orthographic mistakes I make – I'm not a native speaker, unfortunately. Furthermore, I'm a long-time lurker and first-time poster on these forums, so I sincerely hope I'm doing everything right. With that out of the way, I'd like to...

    In-game generated zoo map like ZT2

    In zoo tycoon the game could generate a zoo map based on paths, facilities and barriers, and I think it would be an awesome feature for PZ.

    Map of the entire roster by (approximate) animal distribution

    I compiled a map of animals by distribution. each animal is placed in roughly the center of it's distribution. Thought this could help people plan their zoos and examine the roster. Habitat animals: UPDATE: All maps have been updated for maximum accuracy according to DrBurrito's...

    I don’t understand the new arrival distances in system maps

    In Pre Odyssey, I could pull up a system map and check the arrival distance to a location from the entrance into the system. If I was in the system, it would be relative to my position. In Odyssey, I have no clue how they are calculating. For instance, when I pulled up one of the orbitals in the...

    General Allow custom map markers for planetary locations

    It's not like the guardian ruins are difficult to navigate. But sometimes, you should be allowed to place a little map marker just to remember where a thing (like a pylon) is. Just a nice little QoL adjustment.

    Stuck accessing System Map

    Greetings Commanders, I quite regularly stumble upon a bug where I am locked out of control when I try to access System Map. The only fix is to return to menu and then back into game but I guess it's not the intended solution. I tried searching for the issue in Issue Tracker but search by...

    New Desert Oceania map?

    Hey guys, Quick question: I would like to open a new franchise zoo in the new Desert Oceania map. I found the Tanami Roadside Zoo map (the new timed scenario map), but its not the same map right? When I created a new zoo using the Tropical Biome in South America it worked. What am I doing...

    New heat map types

    It would help a lot to get some new type of heat maps. My favourite would be a habitat map, which shows the hiding places, where animals can became less stressed. The game calculates these spots for sure, it would be a huge help, if we could see it too. It would be also great to be able to...

    Franchise Map Variation

    Franchise mode is by far my favorite mode to play in, but the lack of map variation is KILLING me. I would love to be able to start new Franchise zoos with different topography, randomly generated or pulled from career zoos (without buildings, obviously). When everything starts flat all the time...

    Draw back the curtains?

    I would like to suggest that the ‘high wake’ jumping animation is revised. The galaxy of Elite is just quite incredible; to be able to go and explore a 1:1, astrophysically accurate simulation of the Milky Way is amazing. The number of screenshots and shared stories created by Cmdrs shows just...

    [Galaxy Map] Show more stars with less filters

    Hello, quick request. When you limit the galaxy map to just show 1 type of rare system using any filter, would it be possible for the actual map to display more stars from further away? When I'm looking for say, neutron stars, or civil unrest systems, I have just 1 filter active, so the map is...

    Franchise / Challenge / Sandbox - Pre-formed maps

    Hi there, Apologies if I'm being stupid and have missed an obvious answer anywhere, but I'm struggling to actually find the correct words to even Google this. I love the gamemodes available in this game, and I especially love the Campaign - I'm halfway through the very last scenario. What...

    [Suggestion] Additional terrain layouts when creating a new franchise zoo

    Hey folks, by opening a new zoo you always start with a huge, empty and flat map. All in all this is quiet nice, since you dont have to fight with terrain editing at the very start. Otherwise, especially for temperate and cold bioms, it would be nice to be able to choose different layouts. I...

    Camera-Follow (Not simply camera-centre, or camera-cinematic modes)

    In the classic Zoo games you could set your camera to track/follow animals, keepers on the run etc. This meant your HUD stayed up, and you could exit the tracking/following by bumping the mouse or keys. It was great with a keyboard shortcut. Currently in Planet zoo you can click the locate...

    Enclosure Markers when zoomed out

    Hi, I think a massively overlooked feature I have noticed so far is the ability to quickly identify enclosures when zoomed out. This only gets worse when you have many enclosures in franchise mode. I have mocked up an example of what I mean. Obviously you guys would do a much nicer job, with...

    Zoo minimap

    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...

    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

    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?
