If we keep these answers reasonable and not try to re-invent the wheel but state simple items, such as those noted, Kix might let this post stay up a bit to see what folks are looking for in help.

What can make our bases better ? 57 votes
Allow ALL defenders to move, we have a patrol range, let us use it if we want to keep them still (this can be done easily but just changing the CS of defender ships)
Omega Weapon...everyone has them, but the damage is very low and reload is very long, give us something to hurt.
HT Weapons, give us something that can fire 360.
