A multiplayer server could function as an anarchy server that always runs at 1 times speed. It is a preserved sandbox open at all times and time moves along even when no one is around. There would be private and public servers. Public servers are open except to the banned, and private servers are invitation only.

Sure, the regular missions would take forever, but people would likely use modded light speed ships like an X Wing. It is also great for strategy and for even long term scenarios like a Cold War.

Multiplayer functionalities aside from server mechanics could include:

-Nations - A sort of alliance that someone can create and others would join via open joining or via application, features ranks and authority based on rankings

-Extrasolar Wormhole - A gate which serves as a spawn point for players who choose to be aliens visiting the system set by the server founder

-Events - Things that occur that players can solve, such as a race to a randomly selected planet, starting at the Home Planet, which would be set by the founder

-Weapons Tab - An extra section of items such as guns, lasers, explosives, missiles and tractor beams. These things would be able to be slapped on any craft, but would only have one attachment point. They would have only a base attachment point due to the fact that weapons can only exist in a multiplayer server. Therefore, crafts will not stop working in a single player server if something has weapons on it.

    Just wait for someone like hellfirekoder to make a multiplayer mod, id imagine it would be a little easier to do on SR2 than on sp because how the game handles multiple craft in one place
    (Vizzy would be client side only obviously)

    I could imagine multiplayer being a last resort attack when ksp 2 comes out

    @Exo200 agreed, i will still try KSP2 but i wont ditch SR2... this is one of my favorite games so i will NOT stop :), and i do hope the game does get multiplayer, it be cheaper KSP2 lol

    theres multiplayer is SP and they have fast forward working there so we might be able to fast forward or even warp in SR2... IF jundroo does this...

    I would unironically love to launch a ship to a Cyleroo encounter and wait a hundred days for it to arrive. It takes a whole new meaning to 'realism'. The rest of the points are a bit ambitious/mod-like though.

    @Benbenbentres they didn't say that couldn't change. also, when ksp 2 comes out, sr2 will most likely become irrelevant unless something is changed, that doesn't have to mp or such.

    @Exo200 and also there is no such thing as "last resort attack" since there is no need for one,sr2 and ksp2 are just two games and there is no such thing as a war going on between them

    @Exo200 devs said multiple times that they don't plan on adding multiplayer

    @Benbenbentres could, but it'd be pretty hard. I could imagine multiplayer being a last resort attack when ksp 2 comes out

    @XionmassResearchDevt I imagine that the sales of the game alone are enough to keep servers afloat. If not, then I am happy to subscribe.

    @KnightOfRen Nope.
    @MirazAerospace Yes, but it makes for a great real time experience, just like S1914.
    And you friend servers I already listed as private servers. I got that covered.

    How about a multiplayer mode where you can only play with your steam friends on pc and for mobile play games friends?
