For those who might not know Weird Worlds(it is old game) was a game not very similar to this but it does draw parallels. It was meant for short games that didn't take very long (30 max). It was based off exploration of a galactic map.
I was wondering if the modding in this game would allow for a play style similar to weird worlds. My reason for this, sometimes I cannot sit down and play for hours. I also stop playing games for extended periods of time and then forget what I was doing.
Weird worlds also allowed for customization of weapons/ships/mission/events and what not. I think this game could benefit from having a quick mode where you have a certain amount of days (10000-20000) to explore a galaxy (larger the galaxy longer time). This would be like earth or whatever race you choose is a fledgling space faring race and sends you out on a mission to collect explorer stars and planets (for info). Collect technology and flora/fauna do missions, make allies and also make enemies.
Weird Worlds had a great modder community and some of the mods included, Babylon 5, BSG, Starwars, Star Trek, mods of weapons, engines and support systems, I hope this game also turns out to be like that where it allows the modder community to create great mods of their favourite shows, movies and imagination.
Any input or information into what I asked above would be great and I am not tryign to hype Weird Worlds, but this is the first game(Distant Worlds) I've come across that has the graphics to make it awesome.
