Just had one of those ideas that just pops up when you least expects it, so here goes.

My idea is you can have an in game map filter that shows where there is more likely to be attacked by pirates and corrupted planets.
Far red on that scale means more or less lawless and far green is 0% pirate attack chance and 0% corruption.


To be able go from red to green threat status, you need ships patrolling in that system/area and/or ground building such as law enforcements that conducts regular patrols just within your system that is tied to your budget just like private sector.
More money you put in to "home defence" less corruption and pirate attacks.

Any thoughts about this?

Pirates spawn random, they are not based on corruption.
When a new Pirate base spawn they check and attack any private thing at their range. But i never saw them attack a Resort base maybe it is equiped with weapons by default.

Yes I know they spawn randomly but my threat filter helps us players to see where in our empire the law is lower and more critical hence more pirate spawn in that area, corruption is only a part of that.
Less law more criminals (pirates) and more corruption in that colony.

It's just a thought I had how to make the criminal elements more alive and let us players spend money and or ships to deal with the threat.

Something like this may be interesting.
Would also tie in to additional facilities they could add to the game that influence corruption like the regional capitals.
