Stacking Asteroids, now growing asteroids

Postby ForumBot » Sat Jun 21, 2014 4:43 pm

I would like to see asteroids growing instead of stacking. When 2 asteroids get stacked it would turn into 1 asteroid. The "stacked" asteroid just appears as a bigger version of former asteroid and also gives off more minerals. Along with an asteroid getting bigger as they get stacked more, it would also let more asteroids spawn as the stacked asteroid turns into a single large asteroid. If the stacked asteroid gets above 5 asteroids, the planet's gravity will rip it up, turning it into 4 of the asteroids that made it. If 2 asteroids of the different type form, it would appear as Ast.1-Ast.2 Asteroid. For example: Siderolite-Kamacite Asteroid.

So what do you guys think of this idea?

Huh? I never knew that he stopped stacking.....

Well that explains why asteroid belts seem to have a ton more asteroids than before

I think this is actually an interesting idea that could create some more depth to the mining mini-game. But then again, introducing a wider variety of asteroid types could possibly do the same. It would be good to hear what James is planning in this area.

Yeah. in all honesty, I would rather have asteroids have random amounts of random resources, but that would be a lot harder to do.

I agree with this idea so much I implemented it over a year ago!

Asteroids grow with age. You don't notice much on the live servers, but you will once we add them to the outer systems...

Also yes I believe stacking was murdered a few weeks back.
