Elite Dangerous players unable to disembark on Fleet Carrier after update 11, issue gets acknowledged

Elite: Dangerous is one of the most popular games among fans of outer space. It offers the possibility to explore many planets by means of spaceships.

Frontier Developments boast a complete representation of the milky way with the 160,000 stars in the sky, 400 billion solar systems, a wide variety of ships and more.

Elite Dangerous update 11 is now available with improvements, adjustments and fixes. But, the update also brought some issues that negatively impact gameplay.

Many Elite Dangerous players are currently unable to disembark on Fleet Carrier after the most recent update (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7).

Many cannot disembark on Elite Dangerous Fleet Carrier after update 11

An Elite Dangerous Fleet Carrier is basically a massive ship that can store other smaller ships. The game allows you to purchase a Fleet Carrier and customize it to your liking.

However, many players cannot disembark their ships in a Fleet Carrier after the most recent update 11.


According to multiple reports, the disembark on Fleet Carrier button is grayed out for many.

Can’t disembark on fleet carrier, disembark button is grayed out

Great job, FDev! You delayed the update twice to, in your words, “allow the development team more time to properly prepare content such as Fleet Carrier interiors and include other fixes” and “ensure all chairs are as clean and comfy as possible”, and it’s still fucking broken!

Cannot Disembark: Restricted By Port

Is anyone else seeing this on their carriers after Update 11 just dropped?

Slapped a Bartender on and fiddled with the internal customization and now I can’t disembark the carrier.

Frontier Developments team is aware, a potential workaround

The Frontier Developments team is already aware of the issue and is investigating. However, there are no details yet on an estimated arrival date for a fix.


In the meantime, there is a workaround you can try if you are experiencing the issue:

This happened to me the first time i docked on my FC in an administration system. the disembark option was available but i didn’t use it yet, and went on to install the new modules. after that the disembark was greyed. i thought i broke it, but i switched modes from private to open and it’s fixed for me. maybe it will work for you!
