    Lasers are killing my framerate!

    I'm trying my first combat zones since switching to VR, and as soon as enough NPCs start shooting their lasers, my framerate just tanks. It's like a slideshow, which is not fun in VR. I've tried reducing all the "hungry" graphic settings to no avail. When the battle is over and it's just NPCs...

    More HUD options, please!

    I've been using the "mod" that removes various clutter from the HUD - supercruise speed lines, the circles and names around planets, etc. Here's a link to a thread post that details my use of this mod...

    New Joystick Orange Dot Blues...(RESOLVED)

    Hello one and all, lookin' for a little ED (PC) tech support... Been playing on and off these past 5 years, and earlier today I replaced my trusty but well worn TM T-Flight Hotas X with a shiney new TM T16000 and TWCS throttle. Spent the afternoon and evening getting set up, re-binding all the...

    Invert Y - axis

    I want to invert the Y-axis in the normal camera mode. I already asked the customer support but there is no way in the settings at this moment that this can be changed. I really think the regular (so NOT the freelook) camera mode is very counter-intuitive. I hope the option to change this gets...

    Discussion Consistency (and ease) of interface

    Do you recall that "Nuke/Nurse" button in the Spitting Image clip of Genesis' "Land of confusion"? Why is in your ship moving your joystick or pushing a button almost completely unlike in your SRV or in free camera? Does any of the developers own a motorcycle that turns left when you move the...

    A question about field of view

    Hello guys, a weird question for you. I've been playing ED on a laptop for years, just switched back to a 17 inch screen, 1920x1080. 50/60 cm off my face. What would be the most "natural" field of view for you ? For some reason, I'm never satisfied with it, I feel it's too restrained, the...

    ED on a Laptop - I've Got Questions!

    I may be getting a new laptop to replace my old one, and if I do, I would probably invest in a low or mid-range (under $1000 US) gaming laptop. I haven't been a PC gamer since Unreal Tournament and Quake Arena days, so I have some questions, particular in regards to Elite Dangerous. Most of...

    Feedback: Weather Probability Settings and Pause Menu Overhaul

    While I wait for Evolution to become playable again (the 1.4 update broke the game's UI on PC), I thought I'd offer my two cents on how post-mission island settings could be improved in comparison to how they were based on what I saw when I launched 1.4. Right now (for some unknown reason), the...

    Blackouts (high G) don't dim the screen?

    Recently returned to ED. I've been doing this and that and noticed hard turns in glide would occasionally make me lose control (dead stick) for a few seconds once in a while on hard turns. Friend mentioned blackout (and red outs) and how they dim (visually) his screen, visually showing the...

    Best Graphics settings guide?

    Just curious... is there a really detailed guide out in the ether that goes through exactly what each graphics setting does, what performance impact it has, and specifically what spec will benefit that setting (ie it uses more VRAM, or gpu, or ram, or cpu). I’m specifically thinking for VR...

    Settings stored externally

    Hi. I'm flying on a PS4 using a hotas ( thrustmaster ). This works comparatively well. There are however some things that could improve the experience. 1) I'd like to be able to save the settings file externally. There seem to be periodical problems with reading the settings file saved on my...

    Settings change randomly?

    Depending on the position of the earth moon and quantum fluctuations your settings either do or do not stay set. One moment the deadzones of your joystick and the center dot on your screen are set, the next they're gone. It's mildly annoying at the moment. It will become really annoying if I...

    Can we have a colourblind assist setting to make the radar's displayed information useful?

    So I bought Elite under the recommendation of one of my friends, about mid February. Initially, I thought I'd only play it for a bit so I gave it a try but after a month of owning the game, I'm proud to say that this is one of my favourite games of all time. I've racked up 110hrs and own a fully...
