Loop the systems within galaxies, connect 499 to 1
« on: June 28, 2010, 03:30:42 AM »
I think it'd be useful, especially for those of us who happened to start out on the edges of a galaxy, to have system 499 connect to system 1 within that galaxy. As it is right now, system 1 is about 2.5 galaxies away from system 499.

Making this change will increase the amount of targets available to those on the edges, making it the same as the middle of the galaxy.

I don't think this change needs to be made to the whole universe i.e. connecting the first galaxy to the last, but it should be done for systems within a galaxy. I can't really think of reasons not to do this other than for players who just want to sit on the edges and have minimal contact with others, but that's not what this game is about anyway.

I've seen this idea before and I love it still.  If they didn't want system 1:1 to touch system 1:499, then they should make system 1:499 touch system 2:1 and so on.

And yes, I would love for BFG to say, "We are going to only have XX number of galaxies" and then make the last galaxy touch the first one.

They say the galaxies are set up in 4D and not linear, so if they aren't linear then this wouldn't screw with the pre-explained physics of the game.

I see no reason why this shouldn't be implemented!

I can see it being a little problematic from a coding point of view..though all it would need is 1 extra step in the coding..for getting the correct direction worked out..

I can see solar systems being looped, but galaxies is iffy. People spawning in G100 being nextdoor to the original players in G1? eeehhhhh. Pros and Cons to that.

You could say that, but newer players still have an advantage with their untouchable ranks. With that aside, as long as they fleetsave (and there are many who religiously fleetsave) there shouldn't be a problem.

The accumulated filth of all their ore and crystal will foam up about their waists and all the commanders and red-shirts will look up and shout "Fleet-save!"... and I\'ll whisper "no."

Most new players are not pro fleetsavers by the time their measly 5k shield disappears.

Live and learn. I was lucky, because my brother was overly-ranked and pretty much right next to me. But I'm tricky and I fleetsave at the last second before someone's attack comes in. Talk about rude messages.

he doesnt mean G1 and G100, he means like [x:1] and [x:499] being linked, not [x:499] and [y:1]

Agreed.  That would be a bloodbath.
