So, after the CitCon presentation, I was left with several concerns about how the game will be able to have hundreds and potentially thousands of players.
1 - With each ship being parked on its own landing pad, how will this be when there are limited number of pads on a station and hundreds or thousands of players? Will it all be instanced?
2 - The walking and talking inside the station with the quest/mission NPCs was quite entertaining, but what about when there are hundreds of other people doing the same mission/story? Will it all be instanced?
3 - The map dimensions were said to be in the billions of kilometers altogether, so will it have thousands of space stations to spread out the population? Will those space stations also have huge amounts of landing pads and instanced NPCs so you can do your mission content without someone else having to wait the NPC coming back to their spot and do YOUR mission?
4 - How will those big ships be flown alone, having to need people to man the guns, the controls and other parts of the deck? Are they warning people in advance about this? Because this is a very important factor that might leave a lot of players frustrated when they realise that all their friends will have to be online with them at the same time and spending their precious game time just helping the main friend control his ship...
I hope someone can clear up this for me
