Hey there everyone!
After much consideration I've decided to begin rewriting the SS13 code to include a more optimized method of handling the many variables within the system which should speed up server response time and reduce the lag.
Also, while I'm at it I'm going to be releasing several packs open source which will have several different maps to be used with the new code to add some variety. Several of these maps will be "bare bones" so as to allow the crew to build their own station. I also plan on incorporating the warp gate which can send people to different maps - also allowing the selection of the gate to be opened so there's some exploring.
I will be adding many more construction options, ordering options, and rebuilding the ordering system so that credits are earned based on what is shipped and how much, and is no longer rewarded over time automatically.
There are also many other tweaks I will be adding and I would love to hear the community opinion so I can best tailor it to fit what the community would like. This can be additional machines, more options, or expanded recipe lists - pretty much whatever you can think of.
Thanks and hope to hear back from you all! I'll post regular updates (every few days) on the progress. I may open up my own forums for this project if there's enough support.
