      What is the likely future of the old rod shops? As currently the game "starts" with you next to one, will this starting point simply be another station (such as the Traders NPC faction home base normally found at 4,4,4) or the player to appear at a (random?) point in space?

      Because the Traders Faction and Trading Guild are obvious crossovers and I seem to recall mention that the Trading Guild being phased out anyway, it would appear that the first option is indeed more than viable. Players do however rely upon the random rod shop appearing, especially in non factioned/explored space and would benefit from the appearance of an independent shop/trading post of some kind.

      will hover vehicles have a more defined role?

      Currently the Repulse module only turns a ship into a significantly less useful ship that can vaguely hover. Is there plans in the future to have us make a hard line choice on wither or not a ship becomes a ground vehicle and is there a plan on how vehicles will play a unique role in the game balance that flying ships simply can not fill?

      Are there plans to ever implement a system in-game (either integral to the existing trade network functionality or new/independent) to facilitate players buying & selling completed ships with the same level of reliability with which we can buy/sell resources and components (e.g. ships docked to a networked station can be listed for sale on the trade network and/or sold directly through the station's shop)?

      Are there currently plans to eventually implement a system to buy/sell access to blueprints made publicly available in-game so that new joins can see, compare and buy ships (and builders can market and sell their ships)?

      Will there be any weapon setup analogous to flak? It would make a cool PD option alongside beam PD. Relatedly, is beam PD an option currently in the dev build or planned to be? I've heard conflicting things.

      Hello there !

      My question is related to a suggestion that have been made by some member of the starmade community a few month ago : Is there any plan to reverse blocs production ? I mean, for example the micro assemblers are nearly useless right now and it could be very usefull if we can reverse blocs, to transform them back in capsules with a little malus. (like the assembler in space engineers).

      Thanks for your attention.
