  1. Sounds well balanced and very inviting Welp, there goes my hope in this
  2. And this is how we pretend to refute an argument while ignoring every point made >Maths is an assumption opinion discarded Maths are not assumptions, neither is history nor judging the market demographic of a game versus its acknowledged competitors, good luck running a business if you dont judge your playerbase as compared to your competition Exactly: Directing You arent going to be carting ammo around, you arent going to be waiting on someone to shoot you to press R, you expect to be directing, for that to happen, someone has to *Want* to cart am
  3. I just mean player created NPC's with backstories, interactions and voices etc, stats could be from say a preset list or somesuch, but thats getting off topic we also know from EvE that if people are at least partially engaged, they'll be willing to spend those 4 hours looking for content, and much longer if they have an attention span (W-space stories man) and like I said, marines are more than feasible because lots of people want to shoot randoms, in fact having that as an option will likely bring more players to the table, but really, just repairing armor blocks? carting ammo around? its
  4. I personally think it would be much better for NQ to get rid of their "No NPCs" choice and add NPCs as in game hire-able characters, that add particular bonuses to the ship, and can be interacted with using an inbuilt system or by walking around your ship, that way it will be in depth and accessible at the same time, and adds some potential for character development that mass effect shows us everyone loves Hell, they could even add player created NPC's for it, and suddenly the universe is a lot more rich and engaging
  5. Can you imagine, 4-5 hours roaming through space, doing almost nothing, SUDDENLY PIRATES, now you have the amazing task of pressing some buttons to repair an engine and now you're expecting the vast majority of the player-base to enjoy doing this While *you* might not mind that, the vast majority of people who play video games have a shorter attention span than this, and while you might have pledged hoping for crews, lets consider that there are less than 10,000 pledges at the moment, and lets assume they're all like you and they want crews to be a thing, and that the (low) estimate of 6
  6. It's literally corporate suicide if they do this
  7. What im going to say is going to sound harsh but honestly If you go this far in depth, no one is going to play the game Everyone loves flying big ships, but if it requires momentous teamwork, and 90% of the people involved are just checking the engines or shields, no one will play the game because they'll all be too bored, this might be good for an immersion point of view in say, a single player game, but you're all imagining being the pilots imagine spending all day, waiting to press the button R because the engine needs to be repaired, it might sound fun, but it would be the single
  8. It's like a magical golden liquid that inspires true genious, like forgetting you have a capfleet, or that you're in a HG slaves pod
  9. cheers mate send me a mail or something if you're interested drunk fc is the correct way to fc
  10. The Cydonian Empire is looking for people who can take a joke in places other than their rectum~ can you: Lock a target and hit F1? Drink your own bodyweight? Jump when the fc says don't jump? If so, you're just what we're looking for~ lets drink our way to the top and wonder how we got there Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GloriousCydonia/ And don't worry, I don't sound so plastic in actual conversations send me a message or a mail to learn more about our plans on the other hand, if you're from tumblr and everything makes you upset, I'm afraid this is not your safe space, find anoth
  11. hmm, I think this is a good idea, but rather, have weapons give off a signature that your scanners can pick up, the larger the weapon, the more potent the signature, this gives all kinds of options for trickery, such as phony sig generators, "silenced" weapons that produce no or lower signature, and the opposite for scaring the locals
  12. well I mean, you can go to the store and buy a guitar, strum on it and make sounds without any training, but you actually need to learn the chords to find it useful, is my point
