All of this pales in comparison to one feature:
COMMANDER BRABEN BOBBLEHEAD – PRE ORDER
Multi crewed ships? Hell yeah!
Your co-pilot finding out too late that you’re going on a quick, 150,000 LY tour of the Galaxy? Hell yeah!
Mutinies? Hell yeah!
In frontier, some larger ships were impossible to pilot unless you had the crew, which could mean weeks (game time), waiting in ports to hire people.
And if you couldn’t/wouldn’t pay them, they’d up and leave.
I wonder how that would work…?
