A couple of questions

Postby darkwhistle » Sat Mar 25, 2017 5:28 am

Why do I never see more lava worlds while exploring? Based on the Inner systems, 2/9 doesn't seem to apply anywhere else.

Why do I never see donut shaped asteroid fields while exploring? The Inner system is 2/2 donut shaped orbiting a planet, which seems to me to be quite realistic.

One comment: I have grown to dislike the automatic spinning of the visual display when you zoom out from the ship with your POV near the axis. Especially because I can't make it stop, sometimes, without just hitting 1 and giving up.

The inner systems are based on a different Unity model. At one time, that is all there was in the game. Jam then designed the outer systems and added the 270 billion stars. He said that the donut belts, while cool, were too hard to deal with in the outer systems and saw little need for it, since there are so many of them.

I suspect the same for the lava on planets. Lava oceans once a temp was so high would have been cool.
