What I hope to see soon:
I really want to set up an automated shuttle between worlds. I want to create a cargo ship that will take materials (at a ratio that I can set i.e. 5 * 2500 common, 2 * 2500 uncommon, 1 * 2500 rare) and transport them to one or multiple worlds. It then unloads, comes back and continues. I think this will be even more important when research is implemented as there may be research planets. In that vain I really hope that we will be able to set up an automated system so that the mining planet transports to the tech planet. The tech planet builds the adv. weapons, sends the to the construction planet to be added to the new ships. All while asleep or at work/school.
What would be cool but completely OP:
Giant shield generators that extend a set distance (depending on power input) powered by the a star or black hole. I noticed that power isn't of importance in this game but harnessing the energy of a star, a system, a galaxy are vital to evolution of space faring races.
Anyway keep up the good work :D :P ><
