Implementation of Black Holes and rewards for visiting them.
Enjoying each release of this project and it's coming along nicely
What I'd like to ask is, are black holes going to make it in to the game ?
Stellar ( in solar systems ), Medium ( globular clusters ) and Super-massive ( galactic centre ) ?
Three main classes but I think the important two would be the stellar-sized ones present at the centre of systems, where a star had gone supernova, and the super-massive one at the centre of the galaxy. After all, Frontier said that there was one at the centre of the galaxy was present in FFE but it never actually was. So, as another improvement over Frontier - why not add that black hole in ?
If you are going to add the super-massive one in and program the gravity, effects etc in to the game then why not create the smaller sizes or at least the stellar-sized one in random systems throughout the galaxy ?
A really nice feature to the game, especially when accretion disc are present around some ( but not all of them ) including the super-massive one at the galaxy's core.
As an incentive to visiting them, you could place random ship wrecks close the the horizon of some, but to make it more interesting, not all of the holes present in the game. At least then you could practice your piloting skills to retrieve the wrecks, which would be hard, for salvaging or even to pick up special artefacts from that can be useful to your ship as equipment.
Adding black holes in seems to be a worthy addition along with pulsars etc and would make the galaxy feel more complete as they are actually out there in reality.
