Why not... had nothing better to do at the time
So after playing the living HELL outta Soase, rebellion is really exciting e and i had a couple ideas for the expansion.
numerous main points:
1. new planet classes and categories new classes: Gaia- an environmental paradise, with little more green land then water instead of earth like 70% water. much larger pop. cap. Ocean- planets covered in globular oceans (perhaps a suitable homeworld for a new aqua race?) Toxic- Self explanatory, maybe low habitability but high resources Arid- (dry, rocky. ( in between terran and desert) gravity: depending on gravity stenght, the wells' sizes vary
These are called Planet Bonuses in Sins.
2. New factions or race ideas: New human race( one of the TEC's sins was the expelling of the advent. maybe a side story could be added of a group of unwanted people being kicked and forming a faction that is very friendly to aliens) Aquatic Race (would go perfectly with Ocean worlds) insctoids? or any other alien races rather than just
Why? Play a mod if you want more races. Back stories aren't very compelling either beyond what they've already defined. Make up your own back story and play the game, then make up another one. It's more fun that way.
1. Customizable ships: slightly different apprarances or paint jobs on the players' discretion. choice of laser or beam colors? new weapons: since the TEC loves ballistic weapons, add: gauss cannon ( close quarters, fast, low damage projectiles) rail gun ( long range, high damage magnet powered projectile weapons) Grape shots( burst shotgun like shells) new technology: different warheads for missiles (nuclear, blank kinetic, proton torpedo, chemical warheads) differnet ship equipments ex) Javelis LRM can equip railguns instead if missiles? terraforming more ships: i know that new corvettes r, titans and cap ships r being added. for TEC, why don't u guys give them contradicting ships( TEC is the least advanced, so give em highly advanced warships.)
Um... not going to happen with the current memory limitations for mostly cosmetic only reasons.
-create a backstory of old, forgotten technology from pre-colonized human history.
Why? this wouldn't really add much to the current game play.
3 "Prime" (first) vessels. name examples: Eden Prime(eden/ titans capable of terraforming worlds into an environmental paradise, mothership, colonization/expansion specialty) Andromeda Prime( exploration/exploitation specialty: long range ships with long range phase jump built in, faster then other titans, etc) Capital Prime ( can deploy/transform as mobile starbases, built in auxillery government, powerful weapons, built in factories etc) Stellus Prime (literally means first star or first light, fast, heavily armed planetary doomsday vessel) similar titans to opposing factions q additional
I'm not really even sure where this is going. But... If you want to name your ships "Prime" feel free. There is a way to rename capital ships and planets in game or even to mod it in the English.str.
ideas: different propulsion systems for each race?
They already have different propulsion and phase jumping cosmetic looks and are apparently getting some more love in Rebellion.
Capability to invade planets instead of bombing the crap outta planets?
Meh. Same result called something different.
Binary star systems?
planetary armaments ( like a logistics upgrade, seperate category called defenses upgrade so that planets shoot back)
The game already has tactical slots and modules. This would be redundant and marginalize these already existing game features.
Star structures (maybe solar panels to gain resources? give stars more purpose)
Satellites or moons?
Well, turn on planet elevators and you get about the same effect for Satellites. Play Maelstrom mod for moons though in both cases it's purely cosmetic.
Warpgate type of deal for faster travelling new music better voice acting ship crew to crew boarding combat?
I'm not sure how this sentence actually progressed from the original thought to the ending thought! I guess you want faster traveling music capable of voice acting during crew to crew combat?
rogue planets or asteroids converted into massive gun platforms/military bases that are mobile.(entire planet dedicated to war and armed with weapons).
sorry, but WTF?
