I think it would be interesting to be able to bribe or pay off Outcasts to fight alongside you, or leave you alone for a while.

Which makes me curious... why do the Aliens and Terrans not fight? Is there some back-story that I'm missing?

Or, it seems that there is another faction, the mining faction. Wouldn't they want to buy some of your excess Ore, Gas, etc? Seems a waste to kill the Foe with 500+ Ore...

    I've never seen the Aliens and Terrans not fight, myself. Sure we're playing the same game? :joy:

    Not sure I like the idea of losing valuable monies earned in a run to swap the allegiance of an enemy. though.

    We may add some more faction-related changes in the future but so far it's like this: Outlaws attacking everyone, Aliens attacking Outlaws and you, Terrans (Mining Corp) attacking Outlaws. This will all be explained once we start putting the story into the game.

    I'll try to get screenshots, but I've had aliens running around all over Terran and nobody firing a shot, even when I prod them into destroying each other. They don't aggro. Example: I had an alien gunship shooting at me and I used his firing to destroy all the mining corp fuel tanks because I was low. Elite Terrans and turrets never once turned on the gunship.

    Dang, that was great thinking and should be a viable strategy. Hopefully aggro of this nature makes it into the game!

    ***UPDATE***

    This is not always the case (aliens and Terrans not aggro-ing). This last playthrough I DID get the Terrans and aliens to aggro each other. The gunship didn't work again, but an alien drone took out a fuel pod for me and then the big melee fun started in earnest. Terrans, aliens, outlaws, and myself in a big 4-way fight. LOOT EVERYWHERE!!! Upgraded everything to max, Made about $15k.... Got uppity next map and sucked into a black hole... :blush::neutral:

    Wish I had my video recording working for it. For a Sector 3 fight it was awfully big.... and LOTS of fun.
