By Groups / Clans / Factions I mean things like if you were in a game with a group of people you could for example do a 2V2 race to another planet type of thing and so what I am thinking is maybe the ability to have seperate groups which only see your own beacons and ones from people in your group but other lone people or other groups cant see them or the icon that pops up to signify other characters (Unless in the same group). I think this could also be good if things like the base you build (For example the research station) is locked to other players in other groups and they get a seperate pod to build their own base on and instead of having PVP with things like guns and weapons you can have like a race to leave the planet which I think would make the game incredibley fun to play with friends if you want a break from co-op... I get that the game is supposed to be very passive about fighting and stuff which is why I don't suggest that the groups battle I just think it would be a neat idea to do for a diverse gameplay instead of it just being always a team and then even if you and your friends have been to all of the planets and exploration is no longer a big goal (unless of course more randomly generated exploration becomes a reality) then this means that you wont get bored of playing ASTRONEER with your friends... Not that I could ever get bored of it...
My idea is that there could be servers, and I know this is going to sound stupid but what about there being servers with games like factions, prisons, and mabey even a hunger games type game (if this game were to happen there would need to be many more items some of which would need to be weapons). An example of the games like these are most popularly used in Minecraft.
To the point: -Different factions with similar items, but different traits (perhaps a certain theme). -Eg, one faction has smelter that doubles output, but requires one coal per doubled output. Perhaps they have a collector gun that is slower than standard, but with the use of energy/fuel units and oxygen units performs better than the standard... -different factions have different style of pod, buildings, vheicles... etc. And may all play to a certain theme.
