#5221442 Unloved colonization

You want to stop them from just conquering every planet?


Perhaps an taking into account the ability to adapt to the environment, each planet they conquer changes them to adapt to the planets environment.

if you conquer every type of planet you have no ability to specialize, benefits from one, would offset another, going from a ice planet to a lava one.

if you only stick to cold frozen planets  you specialize and get more returns from those planets, stronger defense etc.


perhaps the ability to terraform if you do want them to be able to eventually control all the planets, or only build outposts and not permanent settlements

so they don't gain or lose benefits, but still have territory


You could go as far as tie the environments into skills and tech and make some tech only available if you reached a certain requirement

#5123001 This is why Modern Tomb Raider Games aren't good...

First of the tomb raider games I have actually played and beat..

Mostly because the controls are at a point where they are not a hindrance

The graphics do help as well, that key I need actually looks like a key, and not a line on the ground, with all the other lines, I need to be standing in the exact spot to pick it up


graphics im hoping is hitting a peak, look at current consoles, while they are 'better' then the previous generation, the improvement isn't as substantial

4k resolution is not rushing everyone out, xboxone is 720p?


so hopefully they can start spending more on the other parts of the game, I like a challenge, I just don't want to fight poor controls and graphics to make the challenge.

similar feelings so I'm trying for next year to do this challenge http://onegameamonth.com/ just a single month to do an idea from start to finish, so don't have time to dither about it and get discouraged.


I did a similar exercise for writing http://www.nanowrimo.org/ 50k words in November and that felt quite positive.
