Happy new year everybody! I hpe for some sort of currency too, that could maybe be used for some king of npc ship shop? Idk, I know nothing about coding, so I have no idea if thats possible, but having a shop with a few pre determined frigates or cargo ships would be useful... Also a place to buy fighters, escape pods, and hopefully bombers and interceptors would be nice.
Its not an issue of whats possible, but whats reasonable to do.
A ship shop would only be implemented if there are pre-built ships (something I don't think is going to happen) and although shops will be nice, early game play would most likely be player-player trades as NPCs are going to be implemented later in development, if at all.
If there is an NPC ship salesman, then it will not sell Frigates, Cargo Ships, etc. Large ships will need to be built and there will be no pre-built ones, you will have to build them yourself.
As for fighters and bombers (interceptors are not planned or the same as the fighter) they are meant to be crafted, but could be bought as an item.
Another possibility is for players to build large ships then sell them. That is the only way I see players getting a pre-built ship.
So i don't know about you guys but how about a atom redesigner chamber
so basically with a lot of power it can redesign the atoms in blocks so for example.
Take a piece of dirt and hunk it in and give the chamber loads electricity and
after a while whala diamond block!
(Or you could use industrial crafts mass fabricator or some EE stuff insted.)
And then there's stealth armor. Any one who has played sots should know this.
So its a block that can bend light around it therefor rendering it invisible.
And making the your ship in invisible or at least part of it.(could depend on where its placed.)
But this would take a significant amount of energy.
(at least infra-red and the naked eye that is).
Maybe since stealth armor would bend light maybe you could put something simuler to it
and put next to a laser and it could 'bend' the laser itself when you give it power.
HAPPY NEW YEAR! and now the world is going to end...
SO QUICKLY RELEASE A RELEASE BEFORE THE WORLD ENDS!
Ummm.... I dont think wer can use Starcraft as a name, it might be copyrighted by the people who made the game Starcraft.... I personally like the name Galaxycraft, because it does form a galaxy of servers.
