Make Planets Great Again
So the thing is that planets are currently pretty empty.
My idea is that there should be something to see, encounter or fight.
Here are some proposals:
- Abandoned Facilities:
How about you can encounter abandoned buildings, like ship construction facilities, Air/Spaceports, small/large outposts, mining operations,...
- Ground Vehicles
Little (or big) rovers, drones, tanks and/or transporters, either as a passive vessel which just travelles straight through the world or as an active force which will attack you.
Small helicarriers and ships to capture. They will be more challenging to capture, because you can't disable the power systems to deactivate their weapons. If yoou do, it will fall straight out of the sky.
- Crashed Starships (my favourite)
Old vessels, broken apart a long time ago, which found their final place on the surface of a lonely planet.
The idea are damaged, half buried and maybe broken apart vessels, either completly abandoned or with a small camp around them and partly salvaged.
(Example: Khar-Toba from Homeworld)
These are a couple of ideas, which will in my opinion improve the game a lot.
Comment if you want and leave your own opinion and ideas (You too KSH).
