    @any Dev who will answer or anyone who might know.

    Will the Xbox one version be 1:1 with PC, or will it be behind like Minecraft or Terraria? Also, feel free to lament the lengths we will go for friends who refuse to get a decent PC...

    Oh man, this has me really excited! I hope I can get bigger rooms than shown here, and build stations that are not just tunnels in the vacuum of space, but actual "blocks" in space, like the death star or a borg cube. Because then, I can build a ship with this! :D

    They are probably still blocks.

    I'm... not convinced. I know there's this deal where blocks have "overlap" zones that get can clipped off when they're placed next to each other and so and so, but... looking at the station walls, I'm not sure how they'd get that outer brighter-gray border to work with blocks.

    I mean I'd love it if they were. But I'm not holding my breath.

    This looks cool but it gives even more incentive to never colonize a planet and I didn't think that was possible. We need some love shown to colonization.

    As was said, We don't know if stations have a "tier" assigned to them like planets do, so it would probably still be better to make settlements on planets for this reason.

    Additionally, pure aesthetics is a reason. Not everyone wants to have everything on a space station and prefers planets. Nothing is stopping you from doing that.

    Yeah, if space stations are going to be tier0 or tier1, you certainly don't want tenants on space stations, because you won't get crap for rewards, and as someone else said, aesthetics.

    I know I keep mentioning frackin'universe, but I feel it's a good example: I enjoy having labs, but I don't like having to wait to actually start FU content because of stuff like having to build buildings which takes a large amount of resources.

    HOWEVER, I wouldn't mind having some farms, or an NPC village, or what-not on a planet and what-not. So I would still end up building on a planet even if I did have a big lab in a space station.

    I'm sure the blocktypes and/or the room templates could be played with, new shapes of rooms, etc.

    And you know, I REALLY don't get why you couldn't do something like this for a spaceship. If the doors themselves activate the building script, why could you not put these doors on a spaceship which could let you modify a spaceship? You'd just have to... you know.... don't try to upgrade it through Pete, lol.

    New syatem. Could possibly be applied to ships.

    Something else: think of the possibilities actual space stations open up for RP purposes!

    While I get what you're trying to say with this, I can't say I blame the people who don't really want to do tenants in space because of the utter lousy rewards.

    This is more of a game design flaw, that rewards should not be tied to planet tier, but perhaps something like a system where the rewards get better over time, perhaps doing quests for an NPC will upgrade the NPC so that they have more to give you, that or placing harder-to-get/more valuable furniture in their home will cause them to give better rewards, blah blah.

    I always felt that planet tier was a terrible way of gauging rewards from tenants. It forces you to build on certain planets, the same planets that most players find ugly for aesthetic reasons, and to be honest, it doesn't make sense why richer people would want to live in poorer places. Why would you ever want to live in a miserable rocky inferno that's almost like a living hell rather than a nice peaceful meadow?

    It just doesn't make sense the way they have it set up now.

    Sooo let's talk about this bit here: " All for a very relatively reasonable cost." Looks really awesome but the build costs are insane....1000 glass blocks? 150 durasteel bars? All for just a tiny T-junction? That's NOT a "reasonable" cost!
