Suggestions / More Love for the Crew
« on: October 23, 2015, 09:31:41 AM »
I don't think that crew should be treated like commodity. It's a thing. Whenever I acquire for myself a new batch of crew I've always felt that I was buying some sort of slave that is forced to do my bidding until he dies. So here's an idea of how crew could be more, organic? Realistic? At the least bit believable.

Crew would work on a contract based system. Essentially you hire crew for X amount if time for Y amount of money. Should you end up in space for longer than your contract period, the next time you drop into a station you would pay the crew an extra fee. Or you may renew your contract.

The icing on the cake would be having some form of notoriety system for the crew. A bit like the relationships you have with the different factions. I don't like how you can burn through thousands of crew in battles and you would still end up with people lining up to join your fleet. It's ridiculous. If you were notorious for having your crew killed, you should have less crew that are willing to join you, and the ones who are willing will ask for more money for their services. On the flip side, if you were careful with your crew, there should be more willing to line up to join your fleet for cheaper amounts of money for their contracts.? Your average notoriety for the past week will decide how rare/copious and cheap/expensive the crew are. This is to avoid having to spend ludicrous amounts of money to replace the crew that you've lost when you are utterly decimated that one time you underestimated your opponent. But constantly losing would drive the prices and rarity of the crew sky high.

Just some idle thoughts before I head to sleep. Please shoot it down or back it up as you see fit.

  • Adjusted crew losses from battle so that you don't end up being heavily over crew capacity after losing ships

Does that mean more crew will die during engagements?

By the order of the Tri-Tachyon, stop right there!
You have committed crimes against the Tri-Tachyon and her people. What say you in your defense?

Made me crack up ;D

Maybe have it fire like a normal weapon? i.e. Press to fire until a) salvo size is reached or b) player releases button.
