Ground Vehicles?

Space suit too slow for you?
Ground vehicles would increase movement speed while on EVA.
It would be stored in the cargo ramps of most ships.

:mrgreen: Luv to see a motorcycle and an anti-grav ship. Don't expect to see it until JAM has some real $$$.

The problem with ground vehicles is that there is very little reason to move around on the surface of a planet. I recall only on one occasion finding a terrain feature that merited a closer look, and it turned out to be a graphical bug... and since there are no critters, pirates, or gems removeable by hand, there is no point to it yet. If you could "gem prospect" with your ground vehicle it might be different. I am imagining something like a Rat Patrol dune buggy with a mining laser mounted high on the back. If you don't remember Rat Patrol, google it.

Now that would be fun! Challenge is the gems are so widely spaced that a ground vehicle would really take a long time to find them. Gems would have to be more closely placed for that to be functional.

Have the ship work for deep core mining and a GV for prospecting surface deposits.
I plan on living forever ...so far so good!
