The only one you can kindof do rigfht now is the slingshot time-traveling idea.
Simply make a space map with a smaller planet (just so that it doesn`t take an hour to get around the thing).
Then place several location markers around the planet. At each one I would place an object so that they could aim for it.
Now you probably can`t add in dialogue as it would slow your ship (I think) but try it just incase, maybe it won`t.
Once you get to the last marker, blast-off to your next map. Time-travelled...
The only thing you can`t do yet is the automatic speed up every time you reach a marker.
i thought as much, i would (and im sure others) would love the speed up effect, don't get me wrong ill get what im given . Im just hopefull a couple of the 'hacks' will be made more formal, theres something unsettling about building items under the terrain etc to achieve certain 'hack' effects
any thoughts on the above (curious if my request are completley retarde) or could actually benefit others?
