So what is the point of this game? (Or any game of this type?) You build stuff, to build better and bigger stuff, to build better and bigger stuff? I could never understand the appeal really. So in this particular one, are there enemies you fight? Do they come and steal or burn down your shit? Is there some kind of hostile AI builder out there that you are competing with? Is the environment the enemy? Is it like Simcity, where it's a complex juggling system where everything needs to be in balance or else it turns to shit? Are there earthquakes, other natural disasters?
You build a dyson sphere, duh
Aside that, none of what you wrote is in the game, and what will come is mystery. The point is even now, with version 0.6 this game is WAY MORE FUN than Factorio or Satisfactory, why? Because you can see what you are really building. It is pretty awesome to see the sun in the sky slowly being built over by an ginormous space structure. But yes, the game needs something. You can play with scarce ressources where smart automating is key and there is a failure point. But needless to say, some enemy planets would be nice. Not invasions, but just a planet wide threat.... anyway, I never liked the combat in Factorio.... and Satisfactory has even less of that (and there it's even worse)
