    Me and I think even more players would enjoy to drive the spacecraft to planets, around them, not teleporting after X blocks straight up. I think flying to farer planets should even take more time. the player could even have tasks like dodgeing comets or fighting hostile aliens. I hope you like my idea.

    I don't think flying the ships to other planets manually would be very fun. I'm sure the people suggesting it would get sick of doing it quickly, or they suggest it and the first thing they go is set up some kind of portal.

    There actually is a Stargate mod. I've seen it in another thread.

    I've been playing around with the Stargates. They're pretty cool. Just wish they I could control them with ComputerCraft.

    In my idea, the best would be to travel to moon in the same time, and it would be fun because it is more exciteing than not driveing the spaceship. Also, you could search for your or your friends' space station and dock.

    As much as i love the stargates, they do not work on the moon or( IDK about mars?).
    However the mekanisim teleporters do work between planets, even on mars.

    I haven't tried them on the moon, but I had a gate on my space station to go back and forth to the overworld. If it works on the space station, then I don't understand why it wouldn't work on the moon.

    Maybe that space stations are not a normal dimension, and moon/mars are, but that makes no sense.
    That actual error is that gate addresses on the moon are one symbol, and then a infinity symbol going on for 10+ signs
    ( Gate addresses must be 7 long)
    Also, the mekanisim portals, i have found you must rocket to the portal, and Shift+rclick it upon log in for other portals to accept it, if it is on the planet you log in on, its fine

    That's really odd. Maybe he updated it. There are/was config options to change gate aspects (like going both ways with one gate activation, etc).

    I love the idea, especially when Tier 3 rockets come out (and they might be big enough that you enter can you can walk inside of them :D)
    But don't you think the Aliens and Comets or whatever should be removed if playing on Peacefull. I don't need a bumpy ride.

    Why don't people make this an add-on instead of planet that will probably be added anyways add-ons?
