The Engineers

Elite: Dangerous — Horizons added a whole raft of features, and the 2.1 update included the Engineers. Below is a list of the modifications they offer and their costs in one handy place! :)

Please note: This data is out of date and is no longer applicable. I am working to update the data with the correct values from the 2.2 update. Apologies for this! (More) Up-to-date data can be found on inara.cz.

This list was compiled from godofleet's screenshots posted on imgur. If you spot an error, please e-mail me and let me know.

Felicity Farseer

Felicity Farseer is a legendary explorer, who engineered her own improvements to her Asp Explorer early in her career. She is willing to share some of that knowledge with fellow explorers and also operates an extensive training programme for technicians and mechanics heading out into the black. She based herself here at her father's mining and refinery facility, though in fact her operation is separate. Develop your relationship with her to learn about another engineer.
