Do you want fleets in this game?

Yes, I want detailed armadas.
No, I just want UFOs, no armadas at all.
I don't care.
I just want a very simple warship class.

Aramdas for me are are a must to create a well rounded galacti simulator. Without fleets of ships encountering and engaging one another it just woulden't seem real.

However, I don't want to micromanage it. I'm not looking for an RTS here, I just want to say mark an enemy planet for invasion and set what percent of my current fleet I want to invade and they go about invading. Then I get to sit back and watch the fireworks.

I of course want to be able to design the ships including the ability to create stuff like carriers, missile boats, and sensor ships and have them behave and fight like they should. That may seem a bit unrealistic but the game can allready take any discombobulation of a creature you throw at, then animate and texture it. Given that don't think it's so unrealistic to think that armadas are byond the realm of possability.

Yeah, same here. I'm gonna be busy colonizing, doing genetic experiments, and I don't have time for armadas.

I'm pretty sure any developers that have been reading this board have seen this topic discussed enough to see that quite a few people want armadas and fleets and stuff.

Me, I don't care. I would just want it to be practical enough if I were to go the 'one-man army' route. Formations and strategies? No, that's okay. I'll take my simple single-unit controls over that any day.
Also, I seem to like Will's idea that the UFO becomes your avatar for that point in the game. Pretty sure he's the one who said that anyway.

@Brutus_ and Vivec:
Why do you even think this who'd be anything except optional?, No one will force you to do anything ... it goes against everything this game stands for.
you probably dint even have to get to the UFO stage, and just spent for ever on your little planet playing around with your tanks.

but the fact that the devs Don't add a such a major important part to space-games, for those ho really badly want it, is going to go back and bite them in the ass.

I would create my own Empire fleet, and my main battleship would be called: "KIRBY DESTROYER". xD

@Brutus_: i don't mind if my opponent NPC players get star-fleets, in fact, i Demand that Thai do!:P
i think things who'd be a bit booring if thy didn't.

but sure, I anderstand that people don't want to be stressed about about being attacked and destroyed before thy even get to invent weapons to defend them self... and sure, I also want to explore and invent every possible solution in evolution before being attacked and destroyd by any aliens, but there is always solutions to stuff like this. it is more an issues of figuring out a nice protective rules that dont limit the game to mutch.

I'm confident it who'd be possible to apply fleets for opponent NPC, without it killing of the balance of the game.

did you mention to read anything they said they wouldnt attack you and only colinize until you hurt them first allthough taking out their home planet first before they left would take care of it

Maybe by not building a fleet of your own, it is assumed that that saved money would have gone into upgrading your UFO and civilization. A player with a fleet will be able to tackle enemy fleets with their fleets, while a player without would take them on with a superior UFO and planetary defenses.

I would like a space fleet, though I could live without one. Look at a game like "Destroy All Humans" and you see how effective a one ship fleet can be.

@patsplats:

I read everything ... and yeas, i have read the hole 'only attack after being attacked' thing... witch i personally think sucks, and THAT is an perfect example of an protective rule that damages and limits the game play.
