Planet-based battles
« on: May 05, 2012, 10:59:26 AM »

Starfarer will allow players to own certain industries, companies, etc.  However, what if these industries could be attacked and stolen by enemies?  Now, when I say Planet-Based battles, i'm not saying marines vs marines. Instead, how about a scenario where you pilot one of your fighter wings as a squadron commander, or controlling one of your frigates, and assault/defend a base/company HQ alongside squads of marines, with enemy/allied defensive buildings, turrets, etc.  For these scenarios specifically, you could also command marine squads, telling them to do certain and precise objectives like destroying turrets, arming timed explosives, and so on.  Ships would be able to fire on ground-forces and defensive structures, and vice versa.  Though I doubt this would be implemented, it would be pretty cool, in my opinion, to see in the game.
