Love this update

It shows the real progress of our virtual world, unfortunately close to the temperature in space, measured in Kelvin.

Space doesn't just need new ships though, it needs to appeal to everyone.

That means loads of ships that don't need Millions of peds spend on them just so they're not as thin as cardboard protection. If MA want money, then make it so you can have upgrade weapons, and warps, add-ons that "turn you on", not add-ons that appear they're just taking you for a ride.

Fun bolt-on's.

Even build your own ship, with loads of different bolt on parts....that would be brilliant. Potential for tons of upgrading then. Sell a module and upgrade to another module....how awesome would that be.

A whole new area of space not lootable PVP...even if still PVP, to mine hunt and have fun.

I think this game has gone too far on the robbery angle....it's getting boring.

Anyway bring it on.

It would, indeed, be a fine thing to have MA fulfill it's promises... but then what horrors might we have to live through before they are able to get it right? :wise:

I hope they bring something fun to do in space soon.
Maybe some aliens that kidnap some space travellers and others must rescue them within a set time or they die and return to ss. ;)

Just on a point of interest I decided to work out what the total amount of money is that the various ship owners have got invested. As a rough estimate it comes out at to a minimum of 6.3 million peds or $630,000 in real money. That's 71 privateers at an average of 50k peds each, 19 MS at an estimated average of 90k peds each and 21 red ships at 50k each.

That's the scale, at the minimum, of the investment that people have put into space just in terms of the "hardware." We deserve more than just promises year after year.

While some of these figures are markup values and not original investment values made by players, if you include shipupgrade costs considering the known si of some ships around the universe as well as the a lowball average number of travelers between planets leading to fuelburn/planet entry fees/space station tp fees/warp drive decay/pvp ammo costs/pve hunting expenses you will even with a very moderate assumption easily exceed 1million $ spent on/in space by players over the last 5 years.

6-a: Ventures into space will come in 2005. We hope to bring real time space ship combat with robot ships and other space living entities. Asteroid mining will also be a part of it. I envision a major star ship with a crew of 100 people all manning various functions of the ship, like engineering, guns, torpedos, strategic command, shields, power distribution, hull repairs, etc, allwoing for major epic battles in the sky.
