    All fantastic editions! I really want to see if that new starmap system pans out! As it stands I'm not a fan of clicking a random button to be met with a new layer of planets (sector). Flying there distance wise though would be phenomenal.

    There is only one viable way of doing that though, zooming out the galaxy map even more. But I still think that's for late game, when we reach unexplored space. It's pretty obvious the first few regions of space are highly colonized and explored atm. But Sector to sector jumps should at the very least have longer FTL times than regular jumps.

    OMG! I really can't believe it. An idea that I made a thread about seems to be coming a reality. (Please just tell me that it was me that gave you the idea for the star gates. Please! I NEED THIS)

    Also am really excited to the changes coming. I really like the space aspect of this game and bigger ships (an idea I also thought of (along with many others)) and the fact that there will be more to do in space is EPIC!

    Seriously so stoked for this game! Keep up the great work Chucklefish! :D

    That title concerned me a bit. A title like "the future of Starbound" sounds a bit like "the future of Blackberry".

    Huge fan of the proposed ship navigator changes. It just feels wrong the way sectors are separated, and that you can jump to anywhere in a sector right from the start.

    Why can't they mean servers? We should hold them by this, it would be awesome to have a teleporter in your base to your friends private server, just walk through and join their game!

    The above changes seem promising, but to go along with the improved starmap, here's my suggestion for the future of Starbound: A Star Log, that automatically updates with the names of planets you have visited, along with additional information that you can add by scanning plants and animals from each planet, adding them to that planet's Log entry. Changing the names of planets and animals would be great, and adding little notes to them would be awesome!

    I agree, but as it currently stands the way sectors are spread out just kill immersion for me.

    Great the main reason I don't play is because I don't want to get too invested just to have my character wiped.

    I am so pumped for these changes, holy crap. I get giddy just thinking about it. Keep up the great work. My favorites are making planets more diverse
