I think that EV should become more advanced in such a way that you can have cockpit views or be able to actually fight in person when you take over a ship or a planet. It should also be made to where you can walk around i your ship or planets or in the spaceport bars. Just an idea!
It got em' in my sights!

I think it should project from your screen into real life, and have a telepathic user interface, too. It should be fully multiplayer, run on any OS (including Atari and Game Boy) and make you money while you play. It should also be free, open source, and the manual should be edible and taste like candy. After you eat it, you should be able to print out another one. If you don't have a computer capible of playing it, they should give you one, and assign you a personal tech support guy in case you have any problems. Even if you don't, he can write plugs for you. Just some ideas!

And who is going to code it? Matt Burch of course! Matt, Matt, he's our man, if he can't do it, no one can! Well he'll sit and rewrite EV from the group up. While he's at it he'll make it fully 3D, include a RTS ship-capture subgame that will rival Starcraft, and a spaceport bar type game that will be much like Quake 3 Arena. Of course this will all still run well-optimized on a 68k, and require no hardware acceleration. Matt will quit his job and never eat, sleep, or have sex again. But he's just one guy, what's the big deal? Oh, I've already run it by Andrew Welch and he thinks it's a great idea. He wants me to find someone to crack the whip on Matt so that he doesn't slack off in the course of re-writing EV. I think you'd be perfect for the job.

I like your ideas guys. Maybe someone should take our ideas into consideration since they are making this new EV3. It could be a "user friendly type of game"

Hey! I had that idea years ago!

I really ought to delete this gratuitous mocking.. but nah, it's too funny
