Bases near portals in NEXT


#1

So…how long do you think it will be before the Hub capital planets turn into the NMS equivalent of Coruscant? Now that we can build anywhere on a planet, and if each player can build at least one base per planet…why not build a base on a Hub capital world next to a portal? I see this going one of a few ways:

  1. A random collection of player bases, looking more like Mos Eisley
  2. Planning commissions being formed, to guide community base building in high-profile areas
  3. Game limits on how close we can build near portals, resulting in a more sprawling community

Your thoughts appreciated!


#2

I would be inclined to choose #1 with some loose rules about griefing.

If you try to plan too much, you get indecision and some players just end up doing whatever they wanted anyway or just leaving to do funner things.
