I know that the idea of starships has been brought up and it’s something that may happen in the future but right now it doesn't really work with the interface and vision of the game. I had an idea about that, I think it’s cool, but maybe it’s lame or already been brought up, we’ll see. Part of what stands out to me in PA is the fact that the game is massive and open but the battles and points of interest are very focused, it’s battling on or over a planet, on a moon, it’s focused around a massive object in space. I think it would be cool if the game continued this focus with massive stellar objects being the focal point of combat and battles. What I suggest is utilizing some object in space that could be a place where you can build a shipyard, maybe part of an asteroid belt or something else, something that can logically provide a great deal of resources and materials for the construction of a massive starship, in this case a mothership. The mothership would be massive and it would be upgradable with things like hangars, different manufacturing wings, planetary assault weapons, anti-fighter and ship weapons, a whole bunch of things. Hell, if you want to go nuts you can land troops on the mothership and try and take out components and cripple it by assaulting it directly. Then ships that are created you link to this mothership, cruisers, battleships, mining ships, anything like that would be a part of the motherships fleet, so you also wouldn’t have just random ships all over space making things a nuisance without adding any real fun. I also think this works pretty well within the current interface because it continues to keep the focus on a large object for the combat and isn’t some free camera, there still is a focal point, battles between fleets happen within a sphere of influence around these fleets so it acts very, very similar (in my head at any rate). I feel something would have to be added to the vastness of space, something that you’d battle over with your fleets outside of just using them as bombardment forces and planet glassing. Perhaps different things, some points that generate massive amounts of energy, asteroids that allow free placement of metal extractors, things that can be used to create massive planetary annihilating super weapons. I’m bored and this is just a rough idea while I’m at work. I love this game and I think space combat would polish off the epicness. Thanks for reading.
