    In an effort to compile the most requested features and prevent double posts on things already suggested. I'm going to attempt to breakdown updates by category. Hopefully this will make it easier for the devs to find requested features easier, acting almost as a glossary. This will also keep the community updated on what has come to fruition so far.

    Note
    : Post is being updated as I categorize. Will provide links to listed features. When feature is added it will be removed from list.

    Standards:
    Suggestion reaches 10 likes and/or 10 supporting comments combined(From other players) or is a suggestion posted multiple times.
    Must be brainstormed.

    Equipment and Items:
    -Linked/group consoles with controllable assets

    I've been cogitatin' collectin' suggestions myself, a stickied thread containing all the community suggestions would be handy... T'is a lot of work though, time I don't have, sadly :(
    Anyhoo, there's a veritable smorgasbord of thunk nuggets in this thread:
    http://empyriononline.com/threads/builders-league-missing-creative-features.8052/

    pick the peanuts out of that if you can ;)
    edit: not sure if many of those reach your current standards o_O

    I'll have to sift through this when I get home. Feel free to find one that tends to repeat on that list and I'll add it.

    Taking all the suggestions, from a specific suggestions gathering thread, and putting it in another thread? That seems entirely counter-intuitive. The reason Hummel made that other thread was to get isolated ideas towards a specific game area... which he then used to make a list.

    When the devs see a good idea, they have an internal list of their own they jot too and keep. When a same-suggestion comes up more often (new threads), it means there is more interest in that idea.

    "Encouraging" people from posting the same idea again, will make most all ideas watered down and not as highly requested.

    But if you want to spend a lot of time trying to make a list for the public to read... by all means :D

    Originally this was supposed to be suggestions from this tab only. Not general discussion furthermore his is covering creative tools not really actual content. The other only covers shapes too. I was trying to fill a void.

    With the Dev team only being 4-6 people they probably don't get much time to read 3 paragraph long suggestions. What I'm attempting to do is keyword certain suggestions and assist them in finding and prioritizing updates based on ease and ability.

    See example here: https://starmadedock.net/threads/frequent-suggestions-megathread.23394/
    As you can see it tends to work

    No *swats with a newspaper* no! Bad Frigid! No sitting on the couch! Aww c'mon I see what he's trying to do, it's cool man. A way to get involved, be a part of things. Ultimately it's just another fracture of the grand diamond we are helping polish. Maybe he'll catch some things that have been missed.... and Hommel you implement bigger shift click stacks and I'll love you again. Until then you're just a taco without any delicious delcious toppings. Mmmmm taco.

    Roll with it man! Start going through the forums, collect that info and put it in. Maybe look at a Wiki structure?

    Nice job OP! We've needed a list like this for a long time! Can't begin to tell ya the number of duplicate threads I've seen in this sub-forum!

    Plus, consildating them makes it easier to see how much support there is towards a general idea (several threads with similar ideas), instead of focusing on specific implementations (each specific take on a feature presented in its own thread).

    1. Scaling system for building with the ability to build using cubes, spheres, polygons and different shapes to drag out the shape to a desired size and let it build it with the appropriate blocks
    2. Glass window shades and colors. Ability to stain glass.
    3. Ability to paint roads, grass, highways, sidewalks on the ground to replace whatever there with a flat terrain with a asphalt/ concrete/ grass texture. This would be perfect for modular cities.
    4. tunneling system, maybe an added feature for tunneling through mountains or underground. This could use snap mechanics ( think subnautica)
    5. Park benches, street lights and other decorations for use in creating a cityscape.
    6. Ability to create signs or post jpeg photos to devices to replace textures. Also the ability to upload gif files to lcd screens to add to the immersion of the game.
    7.Adjustible windows with switch to open close blinds

    This really isnt a suggestions thread its only a compilation of suggestions already mentioned, if you could post links to the above suggestions or suggest them yourself individually on the Suggestions Forum Tab and see how the community reacts to them

    Hey focus on what is important :) the thread itself doesn't matter. It's the original top post and that's it. The rest of it can be about unicorns for all you care. You're doing a great thing so keep it up and let the rest go.

    but some effort on fights. Now its allways more count will win. There aint needed any talent. strategy, skills or tactics. I really hope more versatile in PvP battles so its not only for race on brute force.

    ps. very good game tough keep up a good work
