Initially, I balked at the villain idea, thinking we already have the Vy’keen as a race more than capable of war and violence. But with most star systems having pirates as our first encounter, why not have a pirate cabal with a single leader, as well as a number of lieutenants?
With this possibility, and for the peaceniks among us like me who don’t feel the need to kill everything in sight, how about a stun weapon enhancement? A stun beam like a Star Trek phaser would be a great addition which should satisfy the requirements of SOME of the hunt quests. Like, down a predator and take a pic of it.
I’m hoping as the Mercury Team get more capable in realizing their dreams, eventually they expand on the Commerce Tower idea to a small community or town with all the vendors and sellers which would gravitate to such a place. Not a big one at first, but a few buildings, even a food vendor.
In one of these updates, I want to see the option to modify our ships. We already have the capability to paint our freighters, and this should be expanded for our other ships. But I also want the option to alter the features on our ships, like wings, tail, engines, cockpit and other fuselage designs. What I ultimately want to see is a full blown shipwright, who will let us design our own fighters, shuttles etc, all the way up to frigates and a freighter. That shouldn’t be cheap, but not insanely expensive either. I’d also like to see ship designs expanded to match those shown in concept art. There were some great designs that never saw the light of day.
I’d also like to see the modification and painting idea extended to multitools. Bravo on allowing us to have up to three.
I want to see more customization with our environment suits. The NPCs we encounter often have some very handsome looking suits, and I’d like to have those options, as far as equipment and coloring.
Team Mercury needs to offer us PC people some love, because we can’t rotate our equipment and ships to look at them on all three axes in our equipment screens like our console friends can.
I’ll have to go back and look at my earlier wishlist and see what I posted there.
