Well, with 9.0 out, and people getting used to that (or not), it's time to do some speculating, and spit balling on ideas for the future. Assuming they aren't going into beta at that point (which I thought I heard they wouldn't be), what are your hopes for 10.0, or maybe as bonuses for the rest of 9.x? Here are the main things I would like to see: Improve space content - Better, less cartoony skybox, more darkness and realism - Better transitioning between planets and space, smooth transition if possible - Improvement on planetary visuals from space ability to see raising of mountains - Finally realize the "galactic" part of the name, giving multi star system travel, with a full galactic map view, populated by system maps as they are discovered - Ability to travel to the sun, as well as different star types, which result in different system planetary composition - Expand distances within space, making take much longer to get from planet to moon and around the area of a planet in general - Planetary rings with asteroids, landable gas giants with weather and floating alien structures, flying alien creatures, nebulas, etc - Planetary scanners, allowing instant access to planet data, territory control, resources, etc. - Space detectors, allowing for detection of ships and stations, as well as asteroid resources - Walking in a moving ship Building Improvement - Freeform blocks, or block shaping, to give more smooth building shapes - Increase building limits - Teired farming systems, hydroponics, vertical farming racks, etc NPC Improvement - Ability to actually have walking around NPC in your base that do useful things, such as tending a farm, sell special items, shoot enemies, etc - More races of intelligent NPC, bipedal and wheeled/hovering robots, hover craft convoys/highways, and storyline missions that reveal lore/culture of these different groups These are obviously all super wish list materials, but a lot of it is achievable I think within the existing framework that they've laid out. If we can expand space to the extent that we have a huge amount of area to explore and discover, make building and farming more flexible, and give more depth and meaning to NPC, I think I would never stop playing this game. I hope we see at least some of these things soon. So what do you think of my suggestions, and what do you want to see for 10.0 and beyond?
