[Suggestion] Upgradeable Drop Pod
I thought about the orbital station progression in this game and would like to see some improvements to the drop pod. It would be fun to be able to upgrade it to be a basic base, for example adding a rain collecter module or a forge. Or maybe being able to bring more stuff or getting a radar built in. I'm fine with it being expensive but it would be a fun thing to strive for since many players seems to be maxing out the workshop.
10 slots is nearly useless once you're into armor and modules. Why make a naneo suit of armor to stick in the dropship - why can't we just wear it down to the planet - like we wear it on the way up? Why wouldn't a suit of armor and modules that go in it - already not be 'on' me and not in a dropship slot?
That alone, would address the '10 modules' fallacy that exists currently..
I can agree with most of this. But however keep in mind that it has to be able to get back into space, so there is a weight limit, we don't have StarTrek tech, (though we should since we can terraform a planet)
In the Steam discussion, "What disappoints me is that when you finish the current mission, you can be seen inside the dropship wearing the Naneo armor that you bought and brought down with you, but when coming down, you can't wear it and it ends up taking up space in your dropship cargo bay. That doesn't exactly make any sense. I suspect the 10 slot limit is counter productive and should be at the very least enlarged if we will not be permitted to wear the 5 piece armor set."
They should allow us to wear our armour straight from the station. That would be the biggest help and yes having some "Built" in abilities like a rain collector, even at a smaller amount, would be nice. But again weight limit.
Adding more stuff to the workshop is fine and dandy, now they just need to let us be able to use it. Whether that is by letting us carry more then 10 workshop items or letting us buy a 2nd pod to carry more stuff on a per mission bias. They could charge a flat rate of 150 credits for 5 items and then 100 credits for every item after that. Or something along that general idea.
OR they could allow us to buy a shuttle pod for 5000 credits. Fully automated for landing and such. Which would allow us to bring more stuff to the surface and back to orbit if we wanted.
