Yeah I think we'll roll with the idea of a single company running the whole planet's production. Should be cool to see the logo everywhere, tying things together.
Looks like "Alhatra Wastes" is the new Figure8 name, and "Sahra Pipeline" is the new one for Industrial.
As for the race barriers, they're supposed to look like they help define the racetrack, as they have been placed by the GRIP league. I want to redo the forcefield to look less overly high tech and more tangible though, as well as the Aegis shield.
yeah the idea of planet-wide megacorp sounds good, i really like the idea (it would also make sense to have a racing team owned by that corp.)
now just add a race through a space-port where huge transport ships are docked on Jahtra and you have an overall theme that breathes live into the game giving you a living planet without actually telling a story
Well, since GRIP is supposed to be an illegal racing league that crashes planets to race on then leave, I don't think having a corp own each team would make much sense.
That spaceport sounds really cool. Motion does add a lot of flavour to game worlds. Later I'd like to add more movement to Industrial
Sahra in the form of sand clouds and track flags, flares, etc
