    I was wondering if it could be possible to have space as a dimension, so you could fly where you wanted? Like, you leave the atmosphere and you enter the Space dimension. You have a interplanetary map in your ship so you could see where your current position is and where your objective is. Also, it would tell you of incoming comet and meteor threats.

    I think that would be cool! I don't know about other people.

    Hope you consider my idea!

    I've read quite a few posts about this being implemented, I too have posted supporting this idea as instead of a menu appearing you'd just get shot into space and start wandering. I think that having a map is boring though i think it would be quite fun to get lost in space and not know when a meteor, junk or anything having a chance to just hit you at ten's of thousands of miles per hour.

    I would support this if it wasn't planetary travel (ie. you could walk to the next planet with out any rockets or anything.) If that was not able to happen I would support this.

    Some of the problems your going to run into with this are things like changing gravity, oxygen availability, etc. without changing to a different "dimension".
    Is it possible? probably. Is it probable? probably not. I can't speak for micdoodle, but I don't think it would be worth the effort, at least at this stage.

    To be fair, you have to consider rendering and lag. The amount of lag from implementing this idea would just be immense, my computer would have a lag-fest/tantrum of epic proportions.

    Because walking on other planets makes sense, there's a little thing called gravity to hold you to the ground. Besides, you have a free-floating space dimension, the Space Station dimension is infinite, so just fly your ship around there as you please.

    ok if you ad a ship into it id be better with that would space just be empty and not have anything in it or could you be able to get to the other planets that would make me be ok with it.

    I dont think you get the point why would you fly around in space for nothing, the reason for this post is to say that people want to actually fly to planets on a spaceship not just a place to fly. And also about the walk to planets stuff why not just make it so if you walk to a planet you die once you enter due to hitting the atmosphere or falling from high place

    ^ Some suggestions are good, but just aren't worth the resources it takes to implement them. The mod has to run on almost any computer, or it wouldn't be worth developing. You could do a lot of things, but most computers just couldn't handle them.

    You have a good point but I was not with the idea that you did not nead a space ship to get to other planets.
    also as Dunewolfz said lag.

    what about using a system like flans mod where you can add more stuff to the mod and some of those would be owner made adding space travel, black holes, yady yada, you get the point so that weaker computers can still enjoy galacticraft lag free but if you have a better computer you can add addons.
