Re: That's an idea...

That's an interesting idea - although I don't know how it would be implemented in FO... I like the idea of early combat - not necessarily fighting against an enemy race... Maybe in early game some space monsters spawn, or some pirates? I always enjoyed the build up in Imperium Galactica ... the slo...
