Hey guys,

Keep the ideas coming, I am noting them.

With regards to the galaxy map, I don't want to reveal much at all the moment as I want it to be new and fair for everyone.

While it sounds a bit odd, the placement of planets etc can be varied after the game starts, its just a matter of altering co-ordinates within the universe. Once the planets are created however, they cannot be changed without a wipe.

I have also decided to start with a relatively small universe at first, so players will see other players more often and it will feel a little more 'full' as a game rather than almost never bumping into anyone. As player progression occurs, I will "open up" more areas to explore, both PvE and PvP......simulating mankind's exploration into deep space as such.

I am also having to work a ton load harder to plan planets more, and space areas, taking into account the radiation and temperature levels, and working out what armour and armour add-ons would be needed to visit/live in such areas.....lots more complexity this time round!

V6 looks awesome, and plays really nice with a massive extra burden of complexity and realism. I have died so many times just trying to exist and take out POIs etc on my own single player game, so I'm hoping our new universe will be equally as challenging!

Andy.

I went EXP single. sorry gang. I just couldn't tolerate MurderBoner getting too much advantage over me.
The environment changes are AWESOME. No more building bases in space with just ya undies on. Heck, all my vehicles have to be ditched.
Loving it. Now I don't want public release until I explore more...but I do miss multiplay peeps.

OK. I've had a chance to try out Experimental 6.
I managed to build a base on Aestus (single-play's Rapina), and even HV-drilled some Gold & Erestrum.

I started taking out the nearby drone base.
Step 1 = Destroy Turrets
Step 2 = Destroy top level windows, spawners and nasty things that hurt me
Step 3 = Park SV inside drone base on top level to loot containers
Step 4 = Fall down to ground floor accidentally (I'm good at that)
Step 5 = Fail trying to jump to top level to retrieve SV (breaking my leg in process)
Step 6 = Attempt to leg it 1.2km, on foot, back to nearby CV and BA
Step 7 = Yep....heatstroke death
Step 8...32 = Die trying to get backpack and back to CV/BA on foot
Step 33 = Death spawn back at CV med bay
Step 34 = Use HV to retrieve backpack (quickly...jump out, grab pack, jump back in....268 degrees out there...TIP: Carry lots of water)
Step 35 = Fly CV to Drone base, parked hovering just next to upper level
Step 36 = Jump from CV to drone base upper level to retrieve SV
Step 37 = Fly back to Akua with tail between legs, and note down TASK: Get revenge on Aestus drone base

It's all possible and not really that difficult - I only had Light Armour on, I was by myself, and I'm impatient and don't plan things too much

If I went with a team, we'd be able to back each other up and Step 5 above would've been unnecessary.
One of the team could permanently live there (and enjoy the company of pregnant, naked, attractive, female aliens)

And Lordy-Me a planet like that with gravity=2 or 3.....strewth Geoff, now you're talking.


CONCLUSIONS:
1) Andy, Moe, Dat, etc.....make it hard
2) Don't expect to take "nature walks" on lava planets (unless you are Katia and Maurice Krafft)

I love your adventures Elps, I may have to give it a go to practice on SP as well. If i don't, I may be enjoying the same adventures on a server that will tell everyone "Geoff went for a swim in the lava lake". Highly embarrassing...

Hmmm, I might have to customise some of those 'death messages' that come up :)

Just to clarify, its not the challenge aspect of rapina that bothered me, its fine... its the fact that you cant bloody see a damn thing 75% of the time (well I cant and there are other people in same boat). Go ahead and make a desert planet with 1 jillion gravity and 500% spawns of drones or whatever, im down, but at least give me a planet I can actually see the ground!

p.s I understand not everyone has this issue and not everyone cares what old murder wants, but as the premier numero uno and godking PVP'er on the server and unquestionably the most charismatic, I think my words should carry extraordinary weight in any conversation, and Rapina should be a sunny place to kill each other.

I have spoken.

"Premier numero uno and godking PVP'er" ... "most charismatic"

Pffff!

Looks like a war will be needed to back up your spurious claim. But I have to check with my faction boss first  :)

But keen to do some semi-regular battles on Provocco with you, and if we can make it a spectator sport, we might be able to get interest back up in Tris' fight nights too.
