PostSubject: Where will you build your empire?   Sat Oct 05, 2013 8:37 pm

In a diabolical attempt to start conversation I ask you, What will your empires home base be? Will you conquer a planet? Live on an asteroid? Build a station? Be a roaming nomad in a fleet of ships?

Build a station in an asteroid above my conquered homeworld.
I mean, how else?

Are you asking for when the mod comes out? If so, Probably a planet. if I can manage that long...

If not, see my empire page in the RP section.

Ever read Hyperion? I'm planning on something like the Ousters or whatever they're called.

Build a base on the surface - some rudimentary dry docks, y'know. But the true heart of the Protectorate would be the flagship Axios, a behemoth station with a handful of thrusters tacked on for mobility. Maybe even launched from Cayla (assuming we can name planets) herself in times of crisis should the engine permit.

Also, sorry about all that nasty business a year ago, Shadow.

Biggest asteroid I can find. Take out the core, add some radar cloaking stuff, weapons, hangars, ect. Then sling it in a really far orbit and mock up a capital on the surface of a planet.

You probably weren't serious, but I'm just gonna say this right now - if anyone gets god powers when FC goes live (as in officially released, no glaring bugs, etc) there's going to be hell to pay. Maybe even FC Illuminati.

That gives me an idea. What if you had all the developers and server mods as part of a pantheon, deities and lesser gods, etc. As a player you 'pray' to them which sends a request in their client for intervention (hax, stuff like that). In turn, the mod/dev teleports there and, well, does whatever needs to be done. They can fly and travel in space without suffering any damage, and perhaps enter an 'aether' dimension wherein creative mode is enabled but only one ship per deity can leave it, and it cannot engage in combat. When a server joins the multiverse the registered owner of it becomes a demigod who can fulfill the same function to a lesser extent; being able to ban people, but only those originating from their server. Maybe even visit the aether but not be able to take anything from it. At some point, you could have 'god wars' where factions swear allegiance to each of the prime deities and go to war alongside them.

Distinctly separates the administration from the general playing while still catering to the kind of narcissism that would inevitably arise given this community. Could alienate hardcore religious types, though.

Pretty much trying to avoid that.  Not even server owners will have the same privileges they are used to.  Not sure how big of a problem that is going to be, but I can't see it working any other way.

That is an issue we need to look at, I mean the worst problem in minecraft, for me at least, is asshole admins (e.g. Zothen).

You don't give admins any power over their communities, they're not going to want to come over.

But if you do, you get assholes on board (not counting the people here who should never be trusted with power), or the newbie owners who use favoritism in lieu of actually enforcing the rules across the board.

The trick is giving limited abilities in a classy fashion. eg. Pantheon.

@CMA Don't see how bribery has anything to do with that...at all? Praying is a lot more contextually sound than just pulling up a dialog box while you're still in the stone age.

I think a posted somewhere a while back, Maybe on the 2nd forum about a system of applying for the futurecraft universe.

Essentially we would have the Link server, Which would act as the "Universe" or essentially it connects all the servers together and creates a warp GUI.

When a server applies to become a world/system that server would get the FC server installer, It would then become a "slave" to the universe server in which the map would be reset and a new system would be formed. The owner of this server would essentially become the ruler of his "Planet" and would receive the ability to fly, godmode (take no damage), and do basic moderator police things.


Really like frost said, It will probably involve in making owners little more then light mods. And after all how will we run the FC universe? Will it be a cut-throat universe of mob-enforced laws? or will we have some system of rules set up to enforce? I mean the most we will ever need is a Anti-Hack squad to hunt down hackers and maybe a few Community assistants for help and such.

Yes to the link system, the master server concept is set in stone, no to the owner stuff - that's far too much.

Forget it. I really really really don't want a Centralized FC authority, I'd much rather have the ability to host your own 'Universe' and join the FC one only if you wanted to. To be frank, no one here should be trusted with any sort of power other than Fr0stbye(and maybe Keon and/or the other one I confuse with keon), y'all are the worst moderators I have ever seen, and that's saying a lot.

I'm contemplating if I would build a mishmash of items together into a pseudo-station and fly that around as a base...

And back to topic, I'd site my capital on a city-ship that constantly moves around the galactic rim.

4. Amass resources. // Build decent fleet.
5. Erect metropol, become empire.
6. Reinforce planetary defenses and fleet further.
7. Get many people to join the empire. // Let metropol become one of the galactic main trade centers. // Get economy to work.
8. Become superior galactic force, conquering large part of the universe and getting other big empires under influence.
9. ???
10. Profit. An absurd amount of.
Yes, this is happening. You'll see, you'll see.
