this would be for late / end game as it would be costly to get to until you have a decent bit of money or alot of resources.
basically this creates a new "country" and Transport as well as a new company
Players would need to build a Space Shuttle (the system shouldnt offer rentals to preserve this as "end game" content) and launch from their respective country to travel to the Space Station, the flight could be a flat 1 or 2 hour flight, which would also give some transportation advantages in that could you effectively travel to any country in 2 or 4 hours by going to the station.
The currency of the Space content would be the "All" or could be Gold.
The "Country" would be Space with 1 region to begin with.. the Space Station which would have a new company type called "Debris Salvaging" , as the name implies workers would harvest materials that would be expected to be found in the Debris orbiting the Earth (scrap metal from old satellites, rocks, destroyed alien vessels), These would have UNLIMITED harvesting potential, ie the resources can never run dry.
Hers were it gets fun...
players would be encouraged to donate to the "country", the admin can set certain goals for unlocking the next step.
Once enough resources and possibly even transports (ie more space shuttles) are donated additional "regions" are unlocked for players to go to.
Note: These would act as normal regions with limited resources, however there could be added benefit of DOUBLE or TRIPLE productivity to make these attractive for companies and players alike.
Moon Base - Iron, Oil
Jupiter Base - Hydrogen, Phosphorus
Space Farm - Grain, Cotton
New Earth (Distant Terra world) - Wood , Latex , Meat
There could also be "Elite" aliens here, they are like Hostile aliens except have a higher buffs for damage but also a higher buff of drops!
