Hi all. I've had the game a couple days now and it is a great game. Just as much fun as I though it would be when I was watching the demos. My brother had never heard of it but he likes it as well.
Here is my wish list
The ability to set a patrol route for ships.
goto with attack, rather than (what seems to be) the current goto with out attack until the ship reaches the destination.
A shorter radius for the enemy sight. (Ships anywhere within the planet field can detect an enemy ship anywhere in the field).
More effective weapns. And make the weapon upgrades seem like upgrades after we do them.
A campaign for the three races. (Otherwise all I do for three hours is build ships and spread out, while it's very entertaining there is no goal I am trying to achieve). In addition the history of the races sounds very interesting and I'm like to have known more about them through the campaign. Right now, the history lesson is meaningless as we do not have any connection wth it inside the game). Ie. Nothing mentioned in it impacts what we do.
With 4 metal mining operatins. My metal collecting rate did not seem much different than when I had 2.
Tighter/smaller turn radius for all ships
"Purchasable" Engine speed upgrades
The ability to mine asteroids without colonizing. (Perhaps create a Starbase unit that that be built as needed in asteriod belts for mining purposes) I would not be movable.
