Some things are "hardcoded", but even though guys from CE made awesome new things like trading, hazards, space stations, my favourite prefix randomizer etc. I agree that sometimes number of events is too small. Recently I had situation in slug sector where I got the same event three times in a row (!) and because I was playing Kestrel C, weak as hell, I agreed that very potent surrender offer three times.
Once I thought about reworking socializing. For now it is really boring. 2 or 3 option per race with slugs that have no positive outcome is really annoying. But I heard I want make the game too easy. There were some socializing events like "kamikaze mantis" sacrificing himself in battle to redeem his sins or "crazy engineer" who will improve your sensors if you show you are "worth" of his job flying throug dense asteroid field. I also wanted to make other races useful in someones events like for example: engi wants to create drone, if you have zoltan - he can energize it, if rockman - he can help making some armor, AI - he can program it etc. Of course you can have no need for drones. Someone said I want to make every crewmemeber an engineer. But those events could end with blowing up the drone project, setting something on fire, or even killing the crew. Some sort of risk is written into the game. I can think of this and do some list, and maybe post some update soon.
I saw that there are some mods still in developement: "Project Coallition" totally different from CE, "Arsenal". Maybe some guys would be eager to "take" CE under their wings and develop further if current developer is busy with his new projects? It's sad that the best mod developed for years is now dead and didn't get any updated for 1.6.8 and 1.6.9.
Do you know people who play CE and would like to contact with Sleeper and develope further the project?
Hi there, Ahmedoo- It's stormbringer here- founder of Project Coalition with KingdomKrafters, hi, yes, thanks for the ping- It's an... interesting offer that you've put out, right now, however, I need to point out the following about each of the people who've been mentioned-
one, Kix and I, and by extension, the rest of us on the Project Coalition Dev Team, are preeeetty busy with our own works. we've actually had a conversation with a 'professional developer' who, suffice it to say... has had his name become a group in-joke/swear word, about merging project coalition with Arsenal and CE, and to both, we've said no, since we want ours to be separate from it- think about it this way, if you're making a new painting, would you want it to just be known as an addition to the Mona Lisa? If we merged with CE, or Arsenal, or both, we'd have a hefty legacy to buck to come out in our own way, and it's hard enough doing it independently. The same goes for Bamalf- he has his own mod to get to.
That said, I'm up for working in a strictly advisory capability- content that I do will most likely be used for Project Coalition or promotional material related to said mod.
Styles RJ is a busy youtuber and streamer, and, undoubtedly, he also has other commitments too.
Thanks for your suggestion by the way, and to the rest of the community, I IMPLORE
you, please, don't let all the work that went into CE go to waste- somebody out there, please, gather a team, draft a roadmap, and get crackin' boyos.
