Suggestions for features or improvements
#27231 by AC-Archangel Thu Jan 29, 2015 1:10 am
I went back through the suggestions boards and read through them in my spare time to find the absoulute crème de la crème of ideas, I tried to select ideas based on amount of detail, relevance to the current version of astroflux(ideas similar to a reversion would get shot down but I would read them anyway)

Additional options that would be nice to filter our artifacts

pull ppl out of tele and damage them for teleing, probably ineffective vs larvas but cool nonetheless.

Ability to mark arts as "favorites"
By Xellas
Wed Aug 20, 2014 12:08 pm
most of us have accidently recycled arts we intended to keep, implementing this would help us be able to prevent that.

Double xp

By TyTy
Wed Jul 30, 2014 9:35 am

Command/Support ship....or Maybe New Art slot??
by AbBaNdOn

Role system for ships.

Bind artifact types to enemys(enemies*)
by Prickles
Thu May 21, 2015 4:50 pm
-Makes certain enemies have a better chance of dropping certain artifact types, similar to the way some mobs guarentee certain drops in other mmos.

Improve/ Fix clan search, PLEASE!
By Blueturtle
Thu Apr 02,2015 3:40 am

Lots of good stuff in here. Might I suggest summarizing each idea, it's a very long list and a pain to go through all of them one by one. With a description and general idea of what they are I can determine if they interest me or not. Otherwise TL:DR

/ / /
#28042 by DaGGerz Tue Feb 17, 2015 8:59 pm
Cannot be stickied as it is an opinion thread - others would be upset their idea isn't here..


#28359 by AC-Archangel Thu Feb 26, 2015 12:39 am
So after going back 18 pages I've decided to call it good there, seeing a lot of redundant or out of date suggestions at this point.

I will routinely update this thread as you bright kids post new good ideas, I ultiamately want other players to maintain this thread and add the new good ideas. so that way we don't find the same suggestion being posted 18 times.
#28527 by Blueturtle Mon Mar 02, 2015 2:32 pm
Thank you, Pariahus. This would be great- I have seen suggestion forums with 5 things related to the same suggestion,and I've had to use URL link posts to link them all together.Your method seems better,and a lot less work for me.

+1 vote for sticky.

#28531 by Myster_Corak Mon Mar 02, 2015 6:18 pm
What about some more formatting in your posts and a timestamp when the idea was suggested?
And grouping similar ideas would be nice.

If stickying is not possible here, it could be moved to general discussions.

regards ~Corak the Mysterious

#28836 by Blueturtle Sat Mar 14, 2015 8:53 pm
Went back to the beginning and read through all the suggestions.Bumped/commented on the ideas I liked. :ugeek:
Common suggestions include:
New Sectors,New Systems
(Sectors are instances(ex.Hyperion) , systems are groups of Sectors (ex. Antor) )
New ships
New Weapons
New enemies
Banking materials/vault storage

Common discouraged suggestions:
More servers.
Reason this is a bad suggestion:
(To be added later.)

Stop bumping with nothing meaningless to add, it just clutters this otherwise fantastic thread.


#50896 by AC-Archangel Mon Apr 25, 2016 2:39 am
Sticky my thread so they dont have to, and maybe when the dust and rotten apples are clear from your ahem other issue atm ill revive it XD
#54303 by traf Wed May 25, 2016 10:11 pm

#54661 by AC-Archangel Wed Jun 01, 2016 2:06 pm

I saw this got stickied last night.

There is much to be done, Here's a list of things I plan to do to the megathread:

1. Go back through the ideas on here and figure out which ones should be removed.

2. Try a new formatting method so that I can be able to remember easier in the future where I left off pouring through the forum.

3. Get some nice mod to delete all the bumps, I need to make this look prettyful. traf edit: done! if I missed one pm me :)

4. Attempt to acquire a new set of players to help vet ideas I read through.

5. Of course ill need to start reading through ideas again to get us back up to date.

So much to do so much to do
