    the proper way would be not actively promoting the enthusiasm as long as no stable beta version is available and delivering regular updates/goals to the community to prevent to "extreme" speculations. As long as the community is healthy that'll be fine.

    especially as pre-beta guilds are usually short-lived, thus not worth the effort.

    No, they wouldn't slip through each other, as nora said, that drive, (which is btw. only mathematically possible if you ignore physics), works influencing the space surrounding the spaceship, anything that enters its sphere of influence would still interact with the ship inside.
     
    I also don't get how your "quantum-multi-world" drive is supposed to function. Derived from your description its continous small teleportations, which in itself might be ok, but has nothing to do with (what i suppose you mean with "quantum-multi-world") the additional dimensions if you postulate a multiverse, but that just wouldn't work because you either are at the same location in space if you switch dimensions or at a completely different location, in both cases you would not archieve "small teleportations" while jumping between dimensions.

    honestly, i'd rather have reasonable ftl-drives for dual universe, somethinq that you could find in hard-scifi, not some random things you would rather find in fantasy-scifi. the alcubierre is really close to the limit for that, but something like a reality overwriting drive definitely crossed that border^^

    @Hylios
    You could always create music ingame with lua scripted controls that activate different engines/joints etc.
    May not be the same as a symphony of tchaikovsky, but will certainly sound interesting

    That comment made me realize that we miss a thread where we post scetches and models of ships we may have already created or plan to do
    So if anyone got some, show us. I'll probably try to digitalize my ideas too and post them here in near future

    honestly, i'd rather have archaeologists find damaged items of any kind, which can be processed by scientists to learn the blueprint of some parts of that item, leading to slightly more efficient parts to build stuff with, improved capacitors etc. Or they can find new alloys, a "new old" combination of materials to create certain items which would improve the overall structure etc.
     
    Maybe rarely still functioning items, but honestly, the chance to find still functional high tech items in ruins is not very feasable.

    I like that idea very much, let players set up market units and spaces for sale/rent and as long as no player uses these slots they could be rented by more or less random npc shops.

    i wouldn't make it that limited, after all the most important factor for speed is the design, if u build a medium class ship with 80% of its volume being the ftl engine then u can expect it to have a greater jumpradius than a large ship with a lot less (relatively) space allocated to it.
    As for everything else the important factor is the mass of the ship/object vs. the poweroutput of the engine.
     
    So if u want to create a short range ftl and mound a seat + a gun to it, then so be it. Have fun with your small ftl-able vessel.
     
    That matter also reminds me on a certain race in the sci fi novel "Perry Rhodan" if anyone should know it. They had extreme short range ftl/teleport engines which only teleported the ship ahead for a few cm or m, but in such short intervalls, that the effective speed is way faster than the speed of light (which is a nice way to avoid that speedlimit without ignoring physics)

    as far as i remember we will have a single planet in the beginning where every player starts at, but the universe will be expanded continously
     
       
    While you might be able to create a complete automatized and scripted industry on a planet yourself ( if' u're filthy rich and can play 100h/day) normaly those things will depend on a group of several players to realize. As for ur own army, maybe it will be possible to create simple completely scripted drones which automatically attack players without certain permissions, so u probably could defend an industrial area by urself (again, with a vast amount of ressources)

    story-wise all players will arrive with similar arkships, giving everyone the same knowledge imparted to them by the AI, so it wouldn't be surprising if there is a common concept of currency, whatever it might be. Best would be some kind of currency with actual use, so we wont have a strong inflation over time.

    immersive RP is good and nice, but it shouldn't impact basic game mechanics like camera control. I see no need to find an lore friendly explanation for being able to use 1st person and 3rd person views and especially none for a mandatory skillset if someone wants to use 3rd person.

    they will add a simplified coding language into the game for players to automate some parts of ships etc. maybe it'll be complex enough to allow the coding of simple routes and automated transports. Thats speculation tho. As for defense against enemmies, maybe automated defense drones?^^

    I think arktification can be handled pretty nicely if its linked to the type of organization its owned by.
    Private property, guild owned tiles and similar should not be arkiticeable, but if organizations of the type "state" build a city on one or several tiles which is labeled as capital, then it should be arktifieable. That means every state-like organization which has a certain size can make their capital a safe-zone. At the same time that Arktification can be removed for other states which are officially in war with the tile owning organization. That gives the players a protection zone against other players or guilds but doesnt make it completely save forever.
     
    Ofc rather than being a safe-zone in which attacking and killing is not possible i'd rather have one where its still possible, but where guard robots or drones will instakill any offender.
