Title: Choice of flight time
Post by: Dougal Zebedee on September 13, 2016, 02:50:30 PM
I like the idea of being able to set the flight time of any journey to any value*.  This would enable people to play more at the times they want to rather than at times dictated by game circumstances, and it would go a long way towards making the game less frustrating.

Since I avoid PvP combat as much as possible I'm probably not best placed to turn this into a feasible idea, so I'm asking:
What problems would this introduce, and how could they be solved? Ideas anyone?

*limited below according to the fleet's maximum speed and perhaps limited above by a maximum allowed flight time.

The problem that I see is that you want to introduce "house rules" to an online game. The game already allows for flexibility in flight times, for missions, and gives multiple ways to earn resources and protect them and ships...what motivation would BFG have to change the game to allow you to set a destination time?
