Planet with higher gravity than Alioth

 Current starting planet is Alioth/Sanctuary, and they both have a 1g gravity.
All other planets/moon have less gravity so if you have built a ship that can leave Alioth, you can safely land on any planet. There is no challenge in that.

How about adding a higher-G planet, even something like 10g gravity planet, with some Ion\plasma storm that disables AGG.
With big ore pools, but only of heavy metals, hematite, chromite, etc.

I think we need some challenges in this game.

We definitely need a higher-grav planet, the starting worlds shouldn't be the hardest ones to operate off of.

Even 5g would be a bit much, and would quickly result in a planet festooned with space-elevators owned by single-man orgs (or small groups of such orgs). Between 2 and 3 G would probably be good. 

 

The Ion-storm idea sounds cool, and would certainly be needed on a "challenge world" where the whole point was just that it was hard, but I suspect that with nothing else to focus on *cough* planetary pvp *cough* it would just annoy all the miners and haulers that claim the "have" to fly there to "remain competitive" (ya know, like those pve guys that constantly demand the benefits of pvp space without the risk of pvp).

 

A gas-giant planet on the other hand would be quite interesting. You could make it as high grav as you want at its lower levels, we'd just need players and docked cores to not be able to survive body-slamming planets, and perhaps some manner of harvesting valuable materials from the ever more dangerous lower altitudes.
