We have space pirates but there could be more factions. With their own ships themes like yelow square miners and builders.
Red and white Republica with heavy ships and slim fighters. Or green Ecologist defending planets and using solar panels. And many others. Ships could be chosen in competition created by players. That will add new level of factions wars and diplomatic stuff.
-Factions wiht own themes.
-Main bases in wich you can store your stuff in safe if you belong to faction.
-Wars (more PvP, PvE and defence)
-More peolple per serwer
-Maybe some lag
