Good idea, +1
Also, I'd like an ability to make peace with pirates so I can build my Empire freely until I'm ready to face them. I hate when I get attacked while building space trade outposts, because I have to build starship factoreis and turrets can't move (although there should be tech to move them freely. Devs, do it pls!).
Oh, and pls buff Kol Battleship. It's so big and masculine looking ship, I don't think it's Lasers do enough dmg!! I love KOL lololol
Yeah, this sucks, I used to be able to play with no pirates and no enemy factions. It would just be me and the galaxy. Also, I find that planet militia is too strong, specifically i am talking about the asteroid militia. I can never seem to kill the 1 cobalt or 1 krosov. I would just like to turn them off so I can colonize and only expand without losing ships.
A concerned player.
P.S. Yes the Kol is the best I don't know why they even put in 5 other capital ships.
