    High tech cities. With skyscrapers. Filled with members of all the various races. Sewers below. Ruins beneath that. A city biome, planet-wide.

    I know there's this whole "frontier town" thing going with the current villages, but sometimes it'd be nice to find a planet that showed some signs of real civilization. Trade hubs, populated by a milieu of various races.

    Fantastic idea. City planets would add so much more to the experience. Everything from sewers to sky scrapers etc.

    I would love this idea

    Yay! Glad to see I'm not the only one.

    It would be a hell of a set of art assets, though.

    There should be a few of these in each sector, and their locations should either be marked immediately or learned by npc rumors. (Naturally, some rumors would be spread by space pirates to lure people into traps...)

    Man, where does everybody live in the Starbound Universe?

    Planet after planet of rustic villages, with the occasional apex apartment complex.

    Does anyone know what the plans for human settlements are?

    They all died from the raise of the birds.

    In terms of lore, we at the very least need facilities capable of making space ships.

    Exactly. There's clearly got to be SOME infrastructure out there, even if it's only a few planets per sector. If my group of players can build a base, why aren't there other travelers building bases, trading posts?

    Got my vote!

    I would love to see that

    I just hope this won't be shelved as a "maybe after release" thing. In fact, I'm mildly surprised that we haven't gotten a perfunctory "Yeah yeah, those are in the works already!"

    I came here to post this exact same thing. I really want to see a hub planet for supplies and stuff.

    I support this.

    Nuff said.

    This has been suggested many times.

    I would love to be able to buy land on one of these planets.Go to the cantina every once in awhile doing quests,
    Oh the fun one can have with a sandbox exploration action RPG.

    Yeah, the awesome potential of Coruscant has never really been capitalized on. You could set a whole game there!

    I wonder if the dungeon generation code could DO a whole planet's surface. I'm poking around the config files trying to find how it determines the size of each dungeon.

    It would also be a pretty excellent place to look for quests, instead of being stuck with having to tediously search for an npc SOMEWHERE out in the universe.
  19. I believe the devs should add his. I hope they see it.
