Game Idea: Awesome Space

Andrey "Ater" Goncharuk

Imagine World....Whole Universe with billions and billions different things. Planets, stars, humans, and events. Your mind is never will be so big as Universe and you cannot store everything. But! But the imagination. Imaginations is endless. Even is endless doesn't exist doesn't matter. What if we can reproduce imagination in game. Yes I'am not insane reproduce imagination. Of course there is a boring word called procedural world generation in game developer community but who cares. Also we can give full freedom for gamers they can make their own quests and share through all Universe and make imagination shine.

turnbased
no conservation
insurance + clone + Money
additional clones of other people for money
You can assemble a team of clones
each additional clone expensive (because there is a political limit and they need to break the law that would do it)
insurance and a clone for the money but there is a quest to result MDM can tend to give freebies and easiest ship single

there is fraction : no faction
need an editor
map
must be character and equipment minimum for flights
artificial intelligence

for generating races, factions , planets, stations - find possible complex social interactions abstruse formulas of planet formation and social distributions , etc.

bombardment only if there is a big ship and cannon shells
type containers containers smugglers locked that would need to hack hacking TOE cards AI or skill in a team member
plunder of the planet can only low population tech level
Recycling debris is only possible on a big ship and bought equipment for processing
fragments can attack for that would not risk , in the sense that you can find at the meeting accidentally wrecks do nothing and without scanning fly because of them can fly and attack ships of the pirates , but if you scan you can see that there is someone but need a high level scanning or good equipment
You can look on the planet after scanning on planets with those high and middle level , you can search for objects and people , such as people went out every state services, local police stations information bars , etc. , mini text adventure type, you started searching for ( choose from the list that should ) and where you can spend the money for a bribe that would learn information kill someone but then the board will be karma and the result is either nothing or thing / man get or the exact location of the object , searching is only possible on a quest , if someone will order a specific example artifact or person.

population - the planets just numbers and percentages quality type race such percentage of the population of such a race such as the percentage of stations and ships in this list of characters or NPC opponents in general

special - additional information box is checked by a quest for example , or that additional description displayed

star depends on the level of the number of habitable planets , ie the level of quality in fact it is , the higher the level the " convenient " for the inhabitants of the planets star , a star depends on the age of the number of developed planets , such as young stars can not be developed civilizations as not in time, but can be savages

if any ship or object quest when you try to sell destroy throw a message that the object is associated with the quest to remove exactly ?

when calculating the relationship of one character to another race counted fraction chi orientation ( evil / good / neutral )
if neutral then karma does not matter if it is good karma must be in the black if it is evil in the red

hero of aging and may die of old age and the other characters , you can perform the surgery for rejuvenation

able at any moment of calm (not fight, not flight) away from the helm of the ship to walk , to talk to people , to equip people craft etc.

build
equipment - either of the items on the bench or on the ship and the drawing up of minerals and money on planets where there is a factory
station - need money drawing minerals and building a vehicle that can be hired to build and it will only be within the star system

all in Unity 3d

collect / extract
Asteroids - materials , ore and other , you need special equipment or ship
slaves - and boarding raid on the planet with the savages reduces karma can be sold only on pirate stations and need a good relationship with pirates
resources from planets - you need special equipment which can only be transported on large ships
container smugglers - breaking is necessary equipment or skill

boarding - if you can steal a ship has its own character with the skill of the pilot where he will drive away his point and there is already possible to sell
or if there is a ship equipment can be disassembled into parts

Pilot skill uncommon in the characters that you can take with them, the clones may play their role , but expensive to get

boarding passes when trying to compare the speed of ships skill pilots maneuver engines and artifacts

Tasks can have the appearance of conditions and terms of taking

computer hacking

stealth misiyah

Event logs are generated in the news feeds that can be read on the stations and planets

rare traders in random encounters

mental value of the characters

improvements in excess of the instability , breakdown of equipment engines , weapons

references ! references more !

STRICTLY PROHIBITED
no psychic telekinesis and other garbage
no nano super duper robots
no super duper Energysphere protections and other garbage , only hardcore!

type obelisks on planets can be found gathered together some of the coordinates show the place where you can find a strong artifact

if it is possible to collect reports on clicks action items and ratings from all players

captain's log contains a similar log for all events that occurred with SG and his crew and ship

You can buy or find a pet on board will increase the adequacy of crazy team members, but death can dramatically reduce the adequacy of crazy people

direct hostilities hit the ship increases stress on the crew if the stress reaches a peak then the character will not control falls into a depression does not respond to the ship does not give bonuses not involved in the attacks and robberies
