So at the moment the “My colony” tab, to me, is rather dull. Once you build a structure it gets added to a set spot and there is nothing more to it.
What I would think could be a nifty little feature and potentially keep new players interested is if you could interact with the it and almost have a colony designer.
So what I was thinking, is that it would kinda look like a clash of clans base editor, where you can place your structures and other items (like roads, trees, etc) on a grid. This would have no effect on the game play itself, but even a basic model would add another dimension into the game and bring an attraction for some people, especially newer folk as they have something nifty and appealing to do in game rather than just waiting for EOT. Furthermore it could keep people playing for longer as you have to keep playing to unlock new buildings and flesh out your new cool colony.
Further addon’s in the future could be the introduction of workers throughout your colony, with their frequency being based on how many in game workers you have currently.
A tab to view other peoples colony creations (though this could be dangerous as you could see what structures an enemy player does or doesn’t have i.e ion cannon)
All thoughts on this are welcome, but I wholeheartedly think this could be a great implementation.
- Love it
- Not for me
- Not worth it
