Moons

Postby Sapiento » Sun Sep 09, 2012 5:18 pm

Will there be moons in the game?
After having seen the video with all the astronomical detail, I think this would be something to consider.
A moon could give it's planet a bonus or some buildings could actually be built on it to boost industry, science or defense.

I could also imagine moons that are habitable around gas giants.

This could be a nice stretch goal option!

There's a moon in the main kickstarter video, so I think it's a pretty safe bet.

Cruxador, I re-watched the video to see what you were speaking about, and the only thing I could see was the barren planet prior to Earth. Am I missing something still. What time marker are you seeing the moon at?

I must have missed it. Timecode?

Yes there will be moons. You can see this at 3:25 and 3:45 and maybe in other places too.

Indeed, 'moons' in the system description and the planets list. Bravo!
But in the artistic system view they are not displayed at the moment, there are only the 4 planets. I guess moons would have a similar orbit ring like the planets (around their planets, of course).

At 3:25 I only see the Sun with 4 orbiting planets. I do see Moons listed at 3:45 on the F3 Planets tab though, so good enough for proof for me. I didn't notice this until I maxmized the video to read screen details.

I don't think I've ever played a 4X game with moons, unless MOO had moons and I don't remember? The closest I remember was placing colonies on the gas giant moons in Alpha Centauri, which was kind of a cross between adventure and strategy, with an actual plot. This will be interesting. I hope it will be possible to have colonies on both a planet and its moons if they're both habitable enough.
