The bigger challenges I see in multiplayer have to do with pacing and balance. We'd need to think carefully about issues like whether or not to enforce a time-limit on player's turns, and how, exactly, to manage the complexities of simultaneous turns.

I think it presents some significant challenges in terms both of coding and game design, since turn-based 4X games are inherently multiplayer-unfriendly due to the length of games, and I'm concerned about making changes that might negatively impact the single-player experience. That said, they would be interesting challenges.

I mean the one regarding reducing the number of defensive weapons for bases and planetary defense slost but giving them longer range (and ideally unique art to set them apart and make sieges more interesting)

Think there was also a discussion about having heavy weapons on the defense stations. But some problem due to them rotating.

It would be a very nice visual touch and cool to see ships with a differnt kind of proportion system and vidually also starkly different

If the command and decision depiction could fit into the UI and art style that would be just awesome but I understand it might be very difficult to figure out and display such icons that fit wand fucntion within existing build queue brackets - maybe it wold help if each planet and its converison options get a dedivated build selection bracket: this would give enough space to display the art and also not necessitate new embedded button functions
