i seem to recall that in .480-.483 there were a couple of small star clusters that had NO gate links, i would propose bringing them back. ( its been a few yrs and i cant rem the planets in those clusters) but the idea itself is sound IMHO............... comments please.............

Personally, I'd rather stick to not adding anything more at all, and taking away a whole lot. At least until the playerbase gets to the point where its blatantly obvious expansions like these are nice.

Its a novel idea, and thats the problem. It sounds great, fun, and amazing. And something that is just a distraction for the few people who will disengage from the actual fight to pursue it.

Toying with some possible (keyword: possible) layout changes to sag.

Current setup


  1. kluth-icc buffer added, no link between eri/tau
  2. buffer system added, retains eri/tau link
  3. buffer system and luyten linked only to each other, unlinked from rest of sag
  4. buffer system added, eri/tau and r33/cinc links removed
  5. plan b.


or

Fill in the blanks yourself

I like prop 3 and plan B. I would like to see a somewhat more fractured gate system, with some dead ends, and some not even connected as well..

4 looks interesting. All factions home systems (Cinc, Tau, and Eri) don't have a direct link to each other.

I find the current map to be boring because we are always fighting in the same place. From my perspective it seems the reason this happens is because people from one faction or another start to amass in one high traffic area and then wait to get discovered. I think that the cause is the small map size which has everyone funneled into the same location and there are so few players that people would never find each other otherwise. If there were a way to take the green and red map wash that currently doesn't serve any purpose that I know of and make it more localized and only react to players you could spread people out and still let them find a battle. you could look at your nav map and not see exact locations across the map but maybe see that 5 or 6 people are hanging out in this half of this system.

Just thought id add something that i think would be nice,

I thought off this as i was elite hunting in ugto space a while back and noticed in the Kuzco system there is a small cluster with two gas giants and two moons, what i was thinking is to move this cluster to the opposite side of the sun so it is further away from the gate. and maybe add a few similar clusters into other systems, as these places provide a nice fleet staging area for assaults and resuppling.

another idea would be to have planetary signatures, similar to ship signature but a lot higher, say base sig is like 75 and it is not affected my ecm or eccm, but using a scanner you would be able to detect the planet from 100,000 gu away instead of 75,000, this would add a whole other role for scout vessels in checking out planets behind enemy lines and it would make the odd gas giant undetectable, which would rely more on player knowledge or f2 scanning to find a place to restock your JD fuel when your deep behind enemy lines.

Just ideas, not really high priority things but would just add more to the skill of the game, rather than being able to see the enemy SY from 2 servers away.....

Peace -Apoc-

i like 1 gate, 2 max per system, so that would make 3 or 4 the best imo.


also in response to planet def issue: it was nerfed to nerf ugto, since they been planet hugging some luth and icc asked for weaker planet defense. If planet defense is getting raised, remember its gonna b harder to attack ugto at their planets, in other words it will freeze the game again. Other measures are needed to prevent planet hugging then, etc etc...


Good work devs/mods:), looking good indeed
especially this part:" planets move in orbit again "

was toying with the old Nicea system from memory, but added a few changes. The red areas are/were nebulas clouds, the white, purple and yellow were sunlight ranges. Just something I played with in Inkscape....
