Elite Dangerous Engineers guide

Elite Dangerous is a remarkable name in the genre of the space-flight simulation game. Frontier Developments developed and launched it public on December 16, 2014. With a science fiction game about galaxy exploration like Elite Dangerous, the technical elements are very important. As a result, in this game, there are lots of engineers and they all take a very important role. They are known as people who can modify players ship’s weapons and modules. For this reason, Elite Dangerous Engineers guide is the thing that players search for most.

Since you’re here, I will provide you a fullest and most basic Elite Dangerous Engineers guide. So, let’s follow us in this article to get all of your demand information!

Basic information about Elite Dangerous EngineersList of engineers in Elite Dangerous

As mentioned above, the Engineers are individuals who can modify the ship’s weapons and modules. And in this game, there are a total of 24 engineers. Each of them has a special ability and they can only modify a specific set of weapons and modules. And that set depends on the lore and preference of each engineer. For example, some engineers are suited more for explorers whilst some others suited for bounty hunters.

Besides that, because these engineers reside in planetary bases. So, in order to access them, you need to expand the Horizons. Moreover, before you can receive an invite to the base of an engineer, you must learn about them first. And the Elite Dangerous Engineers guide below can help you.

Elite Dangerous Engineers guide: Bases

Bases of Engineers

It isn’t easy at all to get an invite from an engineer to their base. You have to meet all of their invite requirements. And each engineer will have their unique requirements. I’ve listed all these requirements in the table below (section Engineer). You can refer to it to know how to get the invite. Once you’ve gotten the invite and traveled to their base, you’ll be able to unlock their services. However, to unlock this, you must do the task that they ask you to do.

Here are all bases of all engineers.

Engineer Ranks

Once you’ve unlocked the engineers’ services, you’re given a reputation rank to the engineer. This rank goes from 1 to 5. In which, 5 is the highest reputation that you can achieve. So, what do these reputation ranks mean? The fact that, these reputation ranks determine the level of modification that you can do. And each modification craft your progress to the next reputation level increases. As a result, when you can increase your reputation with the engineer, you’ll be able to craft higher level modification. And of course, this will make a higher effect.

Besides that, you also can increase the level modification by making a profit with engineer instead of trying to increase your reputation level. And depending on each engineer that you work with, you might sell them commodities, exploration data, or bounty vouchers to increase the level modification. In detail, here I will provide you with the required profit for each grade of reputation level.

With grade 1: Unlock as soon as possible when the Engineer task has been completed.

Grade 2: Sell them exploration data or commodities with a net profit of 500,000 Credits.

With grade 3: Sell them exploration data or commodities but with higher net profit – 2,000,000 Credits

Grade 4: Sell them exploration data or commodities with a net profit of 8,000,000 Credits.

Grade 5: Continue selling them exploration data or commodities but with higher net profit – 16,000,000 Credits

Note: In some case, for a module type, Engineers may not be able to craft all 5 modification levels.

Elite Dangerous Engineers guide: CraftingMaterial sources

To upgrade modules on your ship, the Engineer can require some materials. Each blueprint will specify the material that the Engineer needs as well as how to get them. In fact, you can get these materials in lots of sources. For example, you can get them in the destroyed ships, mission rewards, ship or wake scans. In addition, signal sources, mining, planetary surface resources, etc are also some sources that you can use. However, remind you that each engineer requires different materials. This means not all materials that you’ve gathered will be useful with the same engineer. You can pin the maximum one blueprint per Engineer. In addition, the pinned modifications can be crafted at any station that is equipped with a Remote Workshop. However, a modification crafted remotely won’t help you contribute your reputation to your engineer.

Before upgrading a module, you’ll see on the screen a list of needed materials for the modification. In addition, on that screen, you also can see the range for applied effects. The negative effects are static for a given grade. This means they will only increase with higher grades. Whilst, the positive effects will increase when there are more materials spent on them. When you purchase modification, your reputation with the Engineer will increase. This helps you unlock access higher grades of modifications.

In addition, you must progress the grades through consecutively from 1 to 5. You can enhance the module by spending an additional quantity of materials to apply a single Experimental Effect. Remind you that experimental effects are only available at Engineer Workshops. You can’t apply remotely. And finally, you only can install one upgrade modification per module.
