Just discovered this game recently, and I'm really excited about it!
I spent a good hour or more browsing the wealth of information provided by Kalypsochris and it has gotten me excited along with 2 of my mates who are going to invest into this game. Only negative aspect I have to say is that you guys have seriously downplayed the sandbox mode in terms of advertisement. Just some constructive criticism - It is a serious crippling mistake to not include the word sandbox on your website, nor is it included on Steam. It is explicitly mentioned in an interview, a preview that I read and somewhere on the forums here as well, but not including it on the website nearly potentially lost you 3 customers.
When I discovered this through a friend, looked at it and saw this - "Play alone or dominate with friends – an extensive single-player campaign coupled with a strong multiplayer focus ensure an engaging experience" along with the info on a co-op campaign, I immediately thought that the game would not have a sandbox mode, but a multiplayer co-op campaign setting. So this game was spread through teamspeak, via word of mouth, and as such, 2 others nearly lost interest if it wasn't for the fact that I took a second look at it three days later (today) and through searching the forums and reading the published linked interview, that it did indeed have a sandbox mode.
Naturally I would have had a look at the game on release anyhow, but still, don't underestimate the word sandbox and how it ties in with space strategy sims, it is a very appealing game mode specifically for multiplayer.
Anyhow, I have a question about carriers. I'm aware there is ships with special abilities that can host fighters and that, but is there a support class such as a Carrier, dedicated solely towards fighter support?
Also, can the small fighters be customised in any way? An idea I had would be to allow a quick icon tab on the cap-ships that allow you to select a preset layout for your fighters before launch. Quick and easy way to customise their layout. Perhaps this could be done prior in the ship design menu?
