I liekd adding expansion packs to the game. Each pack comes with some extra modules, weapons or other trickery, and some new maps… I had decided to stop adding any new expansion packs and just do the campaign game add-on.
However, I do wonder whether or not there is player interest for what amounts to just a content pack, in terms of graphics. I don’t want to take any time away from the work on the campaign, but it occurs to me that just adding in new ship hulls, without any new modules, new missions or abckdrops, would involve relatively little work by me, and mostly new artwork.
I wouldn’t be doing it as a business move, just as some fun new stuff for an existing game, so if it covered the cost of the artwork, and a few days of putting the artwork and the damage and hull textures together, it could be done fairly cheaply.
Would there be interest in a new race for GSB with no new modules and no new missions (just a new sprite pack)?
Would there be interest in a bunch of new hulls for existing races maybe?
Obviously new extra stuff is always cool, but is this something anyone would buy?
I wonder if I should do that ransom-thing, where people pledge money and when it reaches $X, the product gets made?
