    Economy and Security status sliding scales

    Hello Cmdrs I've been searching and found not much on the sliding scales for economy and security. For example: For the faction 'The Dark Wheel' the Economy marker in on the 'Investment' part of the scale and the security marker is just about on the none part of the scale. However, For the...

    Squadron driven founding and expansion of minor factions.

    Greetings commanders, this is a suggestion for not quite overhauling, but tweaking the BGS and minor factions function, but let me preface with a simple statement: As we all know, Squadrons can pledge allegiance to a minor faction. And this, fellow commanders is what i propose to be the...

    More Depth to Trading in the BGS

    Introduction So as of now, trading in BGS only affects the controlling faction of the station. If you think about this, you come two one of 2 conclusions: a) The controlling faction gets a monopoly in all industries on a station. b) The controlling faction is in charge of the port and flow of...

    Different backgrounds for maps

    I'd love to be able to have different backgrounds to your parks on the game! Myself and Deuce were discussing this earlier and I had a go at what this **could** look like. This was made in paint with a sea background I found on the internet over a print screen of my Indominus Rex Country...

    Perhaps a way to make the BGS seem more alive and new Gameplay.

    One of the things that seems to animate a lot of players is the background simulation. It operates almost invisibly for most, and seems to have little real relevance in the game. This suggestion is therefore an idea to bring the BGS into view for players. I would like to see the Megaships...

    Is gaining INFLUENCE of any use to players who don't care to muck about with the BGS?

    I have so far ignored influence. But I seem to get some small amount with pretty much every mission I turn in... Is there any reason I should care one way or the other? Any practical benefit?

    Purpose of skirt

    What is the purpose of the skirt then if we are locked out from it and can’t use it or build rides over it? Just for filler so that there is something there rather than just black like old RCT’s or just sky?

    Water only background terrain

    Hi, I know the subject of new standard background terrains / backdrops has been voiced before but has anyone ever asked for one that is water only? this would be nice & low on memory use & now that we can place spawnpoints using the scenario editor this would be great for creating true island...

    Generic Biome and Background

    It would be great to have a completely flat biome with no hills in the background with nothing but sky or water to the horizon.

    Scenario Editor - Park Skirts?!?

    In the livestream earlier they called the surrounding still-uneditable area the "skirt", and said they were difficult to make. I'd like to request the following, hopefully simple, additions to available park skirts: Nothing But Ocean - Maybe 12 or so meters deep of water everywhere, no land...
