  • Brand new player

    I just purchased Elite dangerous and completed the tutorials. I enter the universe and feel completely overwhelmed. As I understand, tbere is a multiplayer/team aspect to it? Are there any tips you can give to a brand new player? This is all pretty overwhelming.

    Re: Brand new player

    There are many tips I can give you! When I am in game I am usually in our Teamspeak channel so I would be happy to help you there as that would be easier. If you have any specific questions, you can ask them here as well.

    Two important tips that come to mind though are: Watch how much fuel a trip takes between systems (and consequently learn how to fuel scoop) and NEVER leave the station without enough money for at least one rebuy.

    Unfortunately I am about 30 jumps out in the Merope system looking for Alien Barnacles so I cannot come help you out personally. However; I have contacted one of our admins to see if sometime this week he can help you. If he can't, then I'll make the journey back A.S.A.P.

    Just two quick questions though. Would you like put on our Known Players roster here in the Elite: Dangerous Forums? Also, have you purchased the season Horizons?

      Ok, first things first, if we are to help you, we need to know a few things.

      What is your control scheme?

      Do you have Horizons?

      What is your ingame name?

      What type of schedule do you have for gaming?



      Interested in listening to guitar playing and a good conversation, look for me on TS.

          would love to be put on known player list. ingame name is Swatman1. You don't need to jump back all that way to get me, just some tips to get started. I did the tutorial so I know basic flight. I haven't been in the teamspeak yet while playing elite (only for squad), but I literally just bought the game.

            So, you don't need anybody to show you landing, jumping to another system, combat or anything else. You would be interested in having somebody show you the ropes or rather allow you to get your feet wet?

            Personally, I am a controller user and thus I am not the best at keyboard commands. I would have to watch my old video where Scratch and Markhol taught me how to fly.

                Well, I don't think I have anything booked for this weekend. Just give me a PM or something Saturday during the day and I should be around. Just get Scratch to add you to the private group.

                          I am interested in mining and some bounty hunting. I also saw that there are multi crew vehicles now? That sounds amazing (I have star citizen pre ordered as well btw)

                            The multi-crew part is not out yet BUT it is coming out this season in Horizons. Most likely it will come after the Materials/Synthesis/Loot upgrade and Commander Customizer update but I am not sure. They are mysterious on their update window so there is no real way to tell when that will come out. I guess they don't want to get peoples hopes up and then fall behind.
