Well of course they do. Going round and round a solar system gets boring after a few millenia!

You sure nobody has derailed the comets on purpose to weaponize them?

That can actually happen. That's not what was happening in this case though.

I think most approaches are going to favor dying by less ships.

By the way, is one escape pod enough for the whole crew, or will the player need to equip additional pods as their crew grows in number?
That's not a bad idea. I'll see if that is feasible.

You just need 1 escape pod for everyone.

Yeah, I fixed it so you couldn't accidentally shoot down friendly missiles and that was kind of a side effect.

this has actually been true for a little while now, but all of the ships are now modeled, textured, and working in Drox Operative

Now all we need is a desktop wallpaper showing all the races' ships at once, sorted by size and true to scale.
Maybe as a little bonus for your eventual pre-orderers?

I don't about the pre-orders part, but that would be a cool wallpaper.
