I was looking through my app store and thinking: why isnt there a My Colony beta? This game is under active development, and he dosent release a beta full of broke features that we can tell him are broke? May be a bit more of coding, and you might have to make a separate server for these colonys( or a dedicated area) so they dont kill the market, but I think that we could give you tons of help on tweaking ideas you want to put in but dont know if it will break the game. (Also you could make a discord for it or just use the NOZ discord😉)
Just an idea, so take with a grain of salt.
