that sux. I would at least have hoped for an option!One of the reasons I got this over other product was the 3D movement.I do agree that it would currently be an exploit in multiplayer, however thats only because the game needs to revert to a true 3D form for planet defence\structures, mines etc and AI movement + the planet planes.I can only hope that they will do things properly in the expansion.They have removed a lot of good features for the sake of the layman.orbiting planetsmoonsZ-axissligshottingsolar system orbitsno phase lanes- open movement.newtonian ship movementIts almost worth attempting to get hands on the alpha for some interesting "space like" gameplay.
This game is supposed to take place in real time, the ships are moving at sublight speeds so not seeing anything orbiting is realistic.
Moons have been a hot topic of discussion.
I'm not sure how slingshotting would work as the ships are already moving at sublight speeds.
Phase space, as far as I know, is completely made up, so phase lanes were made too to have some tactical movement, instead of everyone ready to jump to any planet at a moment's notice.
I'm not sure what you mean about the newtonian ship movement.
