There is so many bugs and things to do instead of stupid space missions which nobody play.
I play them, and like them actually.
Would I ALSO enjoy some real 3d space action? Sure! But I also enjoy the current space missions for what they are. Graphical splendor, nice atmosphere with easy to play mechanics. Easy, short and fun.
Im excited about seeing some new ones actually. Bugs are always going to get fixed, but you dont have to stop making new content while you do them.
