"Don't distress, call wayward express" Have you lost your way? Perhaps you simply overshot your destination, perhaps you flipped your fighter, or perhaps you got caught in cross fire of some battle - no matter. Whatever you reasons, we'll get you where you have to go. Where do you fly? We fly everywhere permitted, all public stations and cities, or as close as permitted, for a fee. We cater to your needs, and attempt to give everyone a cheap and affordable method of space travel should you be unable to purchase/build a ship, or simply lack the desire. How do you handle politics and safety? Wayward Express is intended to be a fully neutral transportation business and will not get involved in any conflicts. Since WE fully intends to provide indiscriminate services to everyone regardless of their ideology or political affiliation, there is little incentive attack WE. We will very obviously benefit all those locations we travel to, with bringing tourists and their money to your locations, pay taxes to cities and stations, and indiscriminate employment and travel options. Its very easy to remove such boons and benefits if and where need be Are you hiring? Wayward Express offers employment to everyone seeking to make extra income, regardless of their ideology or political affiliation. It matters not what org you're apart of, so long as you intend to follow our policies and not endanger any of our travelers. What are your requirements? For travelers: Listen to all safety instructions. Pay your tickets prior to boarding. Find your seat, and do not disturb or otherwise interrupt the flight Do not attempt using our services as a way to ambush or attack travelers or other Noveans at destinations. (you will be blacklisted along with other possible consequences...) For pilots: Know your destinations and how to get there safely. Get there in a timely fashion, reporting any problems to your superiors. Do not make any changes to your flight plan mid-flight, unless you are in immediate danger, this can greatly inconvenience other travelers. Return your WE shuttle at the end of your shift. (stealing WE shuttles will result in blacklisting and other consequences) For Gatekeepers: Process payments and board travelers. Actively check blacklist. Report problems to superiors. Interesed in other services and employment opportunities? Other employment opportunities such as security, construction/maintenance of shuttles, etc will be provided by FEC, and IAI. Wayward Express is a joint venture by FEC, and IAI TO APPLY- Wayward Express
Honestly, If it hasn't been brought up yet, I think it should. First, A ship built in space shouldn't need to be structualy sound in a Zero Gravity environment. No gravity to compete with. So ships built in space should be specified as Gravity or Zero Gravity or Heavy Gravity builds. Secondly,.... Portals or Instant teleportation. Will there be Teleportation in the game already? Will we be able to upgrade it and build our own super teleporter? I have a few ideas that can only happen if we can improve Teleportation our own way. Though i think the limit to the tech should be, If you want to go somewhere, you need the A and Z. A on your side and Z on the side you want to go. Or,... To keep things new, Offer ingame only, Wormholes.. Randomly appearing. Can only take you to new places. Only thing is, you're lost once you get there. If we could build our own Portable Portal (Quantum) Generators, then i could see myself making it into a Weapon. (Shoot Missile there. Teleport to there) Though *overthinking* if you do make portals, There should be a size limit to something that can be sent. A Ship slightly smaller than the portal can't go. And Both Openings need to be the same size on both ends. Someone add stuff. Otherwise i'll just keep going.
Could we get an open-topped cockpit for planetary travel? Yeah, I'm talking hover-bike style cockpit, not unlike a speeder or motorcycle. Here are the potential benefits: -It would look totally sick! -Less resources and lighter weight means easier to build and easier to propel ~faster -The exposed nature would allow players to shoot you dead, despite being in a construct. Since Construct vs Construct combat won't be there at launch, this would allow lower-level play to include some sort-of vehicular combat. -Can't go into space with it -This would allow players to have a low-tier transportation system for traveling across a planet surface that is easy to steal/lose but easy to replace -Organize SWEET hover-races Plus who doesn't love speeders?
