# 1 Asteroids should be special.

In Science Fiction, when you spot asteroids you know it means big problems.

Is is a planet klller headed towards the Earth?

Is it an asteroid field that the heroes have to fly through?

But instead of being an OMG moment, because asteroids are everywhere, it's more like, just another level filled with asteroids.

Instead of you feeling like you are in the void of space, some of the levels feel a little cluttered.

The levels are beautiful without all the asteriods.

Only leave them in where appropriate.

Also, the AI often gets tanglled up in the asteroids, so that will make that situation better also.


1. Take all the asteroids out of 80% of the levels. This will also make the levels run a little better.

2. Use communication satelites or maybe 1 large asteroid far from the planet if you want ot convey sense of distance.

3. Just put asteroids on the edge of the systems.

I have to say, there ARE a lot of asteroids out there, and I could stand to see a few less myself.
