Re: Suggestion: Custom ships in any size

Nah, manned fighters wouldn't be realistic. They'd need life support, windows, and wouldn't be able to accelerate more than 5G's or so without making to pilot black out. Drones just need sensors and would be able to evade almost anything since they are so small and maneuverable. Anti-drone drones c...

Re: Suggestion: Large-scale battles

There would have to be a completely different interface in order to do that well. It's a great idea but the beta is almost out already, and some of the backers might have a heart attack if they don't get to play it soon! Probably the ability to zoom out to see all the ships in the region and who th...

Then it's a matter of creating drones that can fight other drones, and do more than one thing, and are manned.

Suggestion: Custom ships in any size

I think it would be cool if the modding capabilities allowed us to create our own ships at any size, from an escape capsule to a Death Star, and maybe even larger and smaller than that. It would also be cool if there was the ability to include the ability to house smaller ships in a bigger ship and ...

Suggestion: Scenarios from other stories

I think it would be really cool to implement scenarios and perhaps entire campaigns taken from other works of fiction. There are many cool episodes from Star Trek and Stargate I'd like to play out.

Re: Suggestion: Large-scale battles

I think you may want a different game entirely. May I recommend Sins of a Solar Empire or Starcraft? No, I don't. I understand managing more than one ship might not fit, but what's wrong with multiple ships fighting side-by-side? That certainly fits with the genre. I'm especially thinking about Sta...

Suggestion: Large-scale battles

The game looks great. One thing that I would like to see is large-scale multi-way battles between multiple fleets of ships. What if the Wraith, Asurans, and Tau'ri all happened to congregate around the same planet before the Tau'ri and Wraith formed an alliance to wipe out the Asurans? There's be a ...

Re: Suggestion: Space Suits?

There should be species who's atmosphere contains toxic elements or contains no Oxygen at all, or contains the right elements in the wrong proportions, or the atmosphere could be at a different density. There could also be other environmental factors like radiation: some species might be super-sensi...
