Can you please make it so there are things like satellite dishes and antennas. This adds a level of difficultly (even thou the game is already very difficult!) to pros, and it also ads a sense of completion. Setting up that perfect geosynchronous orbit with your communication satellites around every planet, or even just one. It satisfies the perfectionist in all of us (or at least me!) when you can see your lander always be connected to the orbiters, and those connected to droo. Communications may be cut off by planets or the sun, and control would be lost if it was a probe, at least until it could re-connect. This could be disabled for new players, so that planets don't block the communications or there range is longer. this would be amazing if you even thought about adding this. I understand that this may be a very long term goal, and I will respect that this will take a long time, and coding is hard. (also thank you for giving me the opportunity to be a beta tester. I hope I helped!)

P.S. add a mode where you can see connections with satellites with the most direct route, and one that shows all possible connections like in KSP!

    The Ansible mod sorta helped with this. Mobile players are sad, tho.

    This would be good but I'm not too sure how that would interfere with auto-rendezvous.

    Could be implemented so that if using a command chip and you where to lose connection to a sattelite near you, you would also lose control of the craft

    Yes please! LOS comms, so to create relays networks.
    Parameters for the antennas might be Gain/Range, Focused/Omnidirectional and "Stick"/Dish.

    If a comms net is added (which would definitely provide incentive for launching satellites), why not make them customizable? This could be done similarly to customizable engines, where increasing or decreasing x may increase mass or cost, which makes it more challenging and interesting feature to work with.

    @speediplayz more realistic as how can you control a ship in the outer solar system from earth

    my biggest question is what would the purpose of this be?
