Star Control

Great game, but a few things suggested changes. Mineral Scanner, mining, and larger world.

The game is fun as far as the space exploration, aliens, and the over all adventure goes.  But two things I wish was different and could be changed if at all possible.

1.  Make the planets twice or thrice as big.  It just feels too small, maybe double or triple the size.  Traveling around a small ball seems off.

2.  Bring back mining using mineral scanning.  It was part of the charm of Star Control 2 and Starflight.  Running around a small ball looking for minerals that just sits there waiting to be collected feels like playing Mario World.  Maybe have the mineral scanner show us where minerals are, then go over it with a lander and collect it.  I spent hours having fun trying to collect every single ounce of minerals in the old game.  And that feeling when you first upgrade that mineral scanner...
