Multi-player? / Multi-Crew

Post by PappaHarper » Thu May 31, 2018 9:50 am

Would it be possible to get some PVP or get a open wide where crews can help together in Public or Private? such as games like Elite Dangerous obviously as time goes on and game gets harder it'll be nice to grow the crew up but still keeping it 5 Per crew.

Hoping to see missions last alot longer and become more difficult other than simple jump in, do/kill this then jump out mission done.

PvP and multi-crew are both features that are beyond the scope of the project, apologies. We're a small team, and 5-player co-op is the limit we set from the start of development, so all the gameplay and networking are built around that limit.

A while ago, we intended to have more multi-step missions, though most of our current missions have ended up being a single "jump in" like you mentioned. Main faction mission lines are planned, which may help with the feeling of longer-lasting and more complex missions. However, we could look into designing some missions with more steps. Thanks for the suggestion!

What about something like Faction claiming / defending Systems? such as between the Factions fighting for power in Galaxy either joining the Faction an help them with attacking / defending their territory or becoming Interdependent / Pirate

We would really like to add ways to claim / reclaim sectors through faction-related missions! We're going to take another pass at all the missions in future updates, especially when we begin adding the main faction mission lines, so we'll probably add ways for players to affect faction influence during that time.
