    Begogian got a reaction from Zamarus in Which biomes do you prefer for planets? Poll   
    A lot of people want variety biomes which would make sense but if you look at real planets in our solar system, most planets have a single "biome." Earth is really the only planet with a wide variety of biomes.
     
    Taking this into account, I think it would be really cool to have planets specifically for certain biomes but also mixed biome planets here and there. Let's say you have a solar system with 15 planets. If you were to have 2-3 planets with 4+ biomes, 5-6 planets with 2-4 biomes, and the rest with single biomes, you could create a balanced yet realistic solar system. You could also have solar systems with specific parameters that cause more planets to be gaseous or more to be mineral rich which would be a cool environment to fly around in. As the game progresses, ships will become bigger, faster, and stronger allowing them to fly further and explore more planets. If all planets had a lot of biomes, it may become frustrating to stop at every planet only to mine 1,000 "iron" units, but if you need a lot of "iron," you are more likely to find multiple "iron" rich planets in a solar system with a sun with a solar radius larger than 540,000 km vs our sun's size of 432,000 km which causes more gaseous and mixed biome planets.

    This could be cool to test out and try and expand the communities knowledge. What is nice about this is that it brings the community into it instead of just having the devs do everything, could also help fix translation issues.

    This is cool but I do think they should be quite rare like they said, maybe even rarer. If they implement too many of these i feel like they will be used and abused way too much for all the wrong reasons.

    Just like Void and ATMLVE said, any Nomadic Org would need to be very well protected/guarded, and would need to keep moving in a forward direction. The issue with this is it would lose the title "Nomadic." You would just become a small organization that survives with a single ship. No matter what, your progression in the game, instead of a repeating circle, would be a continuous line away from Alioth.

    Couldn't this possibly take some of the fun and game element out of the game? It will definitely be a day when someone writes a script to auto-mine but eventually you would just be removing the person from the game. It's an idea to think about but when you can just sit back and mine multiple planets at once or run an entire fleet on your own, it will be taking the fun and social aspect out of the game. Imagine 1 guy/girl scripts a whole army, there wouldn't be a need for organizations because a single player could do everything a normal organization of 50+ people could do.

    Begogian got a reaction from Kuritho in Windows or a way to making voxels transparent   
    Hahaha. Imagine a city with all these intricate designs and structures, but without windows. It would look ridiculous. I hope they do the transparent voxels and add a slight haze or sheen to them so they look a bit more realistic. I wonder if there would be an editor tool that could change how see through the voxels were. As if editing a Photoshop picture's transparency.

    It would be a cool feature though where you could extract gases from gaseous planets and use it for fuel for ships or to power machines/facilities/power plants. It could be sold in canisters or gas tanks.

    So, if implemented, maybe slowly over time, you lose this "mana" or calories, and everything you do takes longer. You are slower to move around, you mine slower, and build slower. It never kills you, but slows you down. A lot of survival games have fast hunger/thirst loss. I feel like in a game like this, it would be very slowly so your game time doesn't revolve around eating and drinking water. The more you do in a short span of time though, the faster your mana drains.
     
    If this becomes a thing though, it should be far down the road, focusing more on the bigger aspects like building and exploring. Put this up on the fridge and fetch it later when thinking of new levels to add to the game.

    So just spit balling here, you can take this seriously or not, whichever you choose.
     
    After the first stages of the game, when all of the big organizations and large teams have left Alioth, it will be deserted for a bit, left to only solo players or the ones left behind, until new players start to join. These new players are going to be in a small pickle because they will be both new to the game and low on resources. Imagine, an Uber service that could help kickstart their time in DU. They pay a small fee based on how far they want to go, or which organizations to be flown to, and people fly them there. Use DUber to pick up new recruits from the starting planet. Lost your ship or had it stolen? Call DUber and they will pick you up and safely bring you home. 
     
    DUber is here to "make transportation as reliable as running water, everywhere, for everyone."
     
     
    It may be a game but no drinking and flying folks.
