PostSubject: GemCollector's Ideas   Sat Dec 03, 2011 10:21 am

I have been looking through the forum to see if anyone has suggested this, but no one has.

I think there should be an extendable stairway or ladder from a ship's exit. Otherwise exiting a space ship would be a bit akward, don't you think?

Also, from the ranks suggested, there is no rank for someone who wants his own ship. Maybe there could be a new class of the trader with a small ship operated by one person. He could go between different planets to get resources to trade.

Thoughts/feedback welcome.

PostSubject: Extendable Arm   Sun Dec 04, 2011 1:25 am

I am in for an extendable arm. This arm could be used for many different purposes. It could be used for docking, mining, and picking up various items floating through space.

IDEA: Maybe we could use gems as currency along with other precious metals. I made some a while ago, and so maybe I finally found a use for them! As always, feedback is welcome. I made tool images as well.

Can't post the image for 7 days. Sorry!

I don't really like the idea of a extendable stairway or arm going down from a spaceship. I think that if you would want to land a spaceship you woulld need a dock or ship cradle (big hole in the ground used for construction and docking of ships) plus it could be easily shot off in a battle, leaving you unable to land and stuck in the air, slowly running out of fuel... you can see where this is going. Shocked Sorry if I'm just flaming or being a troll. I'm trying to give constructive criticism.

I think somehow allowing ships within ships (which is what this boils down to on a technical level) and letting people build with it as they b=please would be the best course of action.

Perhaps, however I still think it would be good to have an extendable arm. Besides, it wouldn't be extended during a battle, therefore it cannot be easily shot off. Also, you would occasionally need to land a bigger ship, if only for repairs.

And this is a forum, daman200. It's what someone would expect.

If its not extended during the battle it would be a good idea as you could snatch ores without ever leaving your ship.



First time I've been on a forum except for the Minecraft forums.

Why not extend it during battle? You could strap weapons or situation armor to it, or just cool whirly bits. The point is not to look at the specific use of 'landing ramp', but rather how the mechanism that allows it is flexible enough to allow creativity.

Well I for one think that an extendable arm as such could be used for missile launchers, shield generators, etc., but basically it would be used for a landing ramp. Because otherwise it would be rather hard to exit a ship without creating a odd-looking extension from the ship that looks mysteriously like a staircase.

Or, we could just crash land each time and rebuild it. Very Happy PROBLEM SOLVED!
