Feature Request

I love your game! But, if any F dev reads this, could like do a favor for us poor explorers? I enjoy looking about the galaxy you all created and you do a great job of creating vistas for us to see. BUT, we are explorers. Would it be possible for us to find something new out there? aybe another civilization? A lost civ? A galactic truckstop? An empty beer can floating around? Anything. This is a big galaxy and I am sure we ain't the only ones other than the thargoids. Maybe put a RND or maybe 5 out 100 times finding something? Just a request from a lowly CMDR. Anyay, excuse me while I go out and poke around a bit more in NGC 6357. I love nebulas.

They simply do not have the resources to make a new thing for every explorer.

And randomly generated stuff might make no sense, or be weird.

If you think so then why FDEV made a forum section named "Suggestions & Features Request"?
If you don't like personal requests it's better for you not to look here.

Yes it would be cool to find some lost civilization signs while out in the black. Some good reason to land on planet and to increase the exploration data value!

Remember everyone, there is a Focused Feedback coming up just for exploration. Please note down your ideas and present them there, for FDev will be actively looking at that time.

You don't have much grasp of reality, do you?

In order to show something to a player, something or somebody has to create it. If it is randomly generated, you get kind of boring random stuff, which might not make sense. Look at the procedural stuff in No Mans Sky, for instance. It's content, but automatically generated, and some of it is nonsensical, and all of it is pretty much the same.

If you want actual interesting things, look up all the mega ships and static planetary installations. They have a lot of stories behind them. And they were ALL WRITTEN BY SOMEBODY. FD simply cannot have the man-hours to write up and hide (high quality) things faster than players can chew through them.

There's stuff out there. But don't expect unique things hidden for every player, everywhere. There are a LOT of stars, and space is BIG.

Sure, they could scatter pointless things around, but that would kind of cheapen finding the REAL neat things out there.

Thanks for the links. These should have been in Galnet in-game.
