with 7 hours to go there ultimate, unimaginable goal of 6 million for the space we are all hoping for is an attainable possibility, as it currently stands they have enough funding to make the game they always wanted to, with in reason. At the 6 million make the game will launch with one HUNDRED star systems in addition to a full orchestrated score.
I am trying so hard not to get over hyped for this but the premisses there making are so attainable the system there using already supports everything from A wide, living , breathing cosmos to planetary ground based combat. It's already possible to fight on foot inside ships and space stations.
They wont have planet exploration at launch but it's something they are looking into, the lead game designer says if he does it he wants it done RIGHT so it's not gonna be there at launch but it's definitely on the table.
it support privite servers, the game world is so expressive you can form your own pirate fleet, your own trade federation, even a mercenary paramilitary organization. Carve out your own slice of the cosmos if you like, explore unknown star systums and have the jump point named after you.
Earn or steal one of those powerfull star cruisers and make it a center point in a guild fleet, or manage to capture one of the titanic Bengal carriers. A veritable MACROSS Sized vessel, If the cruisers are the enterprise or a star destroyer, then the Bengal is a death star XD
