    How would you change Planetary Annihilation if you had the power to do so?

    wouldn't that require enginework and likely building the game from the ground up though?


    topic:

    primarily
    - orbital visibility
    - multiunittransports
    - couple more additions to pure orbital gameplay


    secondary
    - hovercraftfactories
    - minimap for mainview + temporary minimaps for hovering over planeticonbar

    wishthinking
    - general multithreadsupport


    @g0hstreaper
    that bit of "chaos" wouldn't even matter much considering how rather calm (there beeing not much going on on) the forum is and i rather doubt this thread will steer up as much drama as some certain recent "modaration"-thread

    I'd like to see multi thread sim (thread per planet was suggested), Vulcan support and so on. Allow the game to scale further essentially....

    Add +100% or more maps for ranked. And that's even pretty cheap to do.

    Combine Titans and Classic back into one game. (Or just give Titans to everyone). It's insane to keep the matchmaking queue split in two for essentially the same game with these player counts.

    Give control of the game to people that care (not a dig, mean it as there are so many people willing to work a lot of hours for free to make this game better).

    After that, rebalance vanilla much much, add legion to ladder, add exodus maps to ladder maps (needs to be like 20- with a relegation/promotion for new maps to keep the ranked ladder fresh), many more details on ladder( win %, favorite map, clear list of last 10 games, favorite faction, favorite commander they use most etc

    • General performance improvements and optimisation, of course.

    • Better sounds and effects. This is the one area I feel Uber didn't do quite as good a job as I'd have liked.

    • A few more units and buildings. Fun stuff like MLRS vehicles. spiderbots, massive tanks, that sort of thing. Not to address any particular balance issue, just to add a bit more variety.

    • Some sort of system that makes adding individual community-created units easy, like the TA method.

    • A bigger community :D

    As for the big-expensive-totally-unrealistic-at-this-point things:

    • Terrain deformation from weapon impacts and dynamic planet damage, i.e. battles changing forest, snow and desert biomes to lava biomes as the game goes on.

    • More space combat features such as more ships, large interplanetary transports, possibly even full-3D movement.

    • An entirely revamped Galactic War.

    Actually make myself God of this game. I can see it now: universal command ui where I can spawn in units on any server anywhere, blow up other commanders at a moments notice, and rebalance the game as I please; both server wide and for individual games in order to make some people more equal than others. Truly, the PA experience as it was meant to be for me.
