This would be a FANTASTIC multiplayer game. Please do NOT make an Elder Scrolls space game.
I registered to tell you how great of an idea this project is.. Until I saw your FAQ. I will not back it now.
The reason LT will not be multiplayer is because it would require substantial changes to the game engine. At this stage in the process, that is not feasible. Josh has mentioned several times that he hopes to make an LT2, which would be multiplayer and incorporate a number of other settings not available in LT1 due to the limitations of what has already been programmed.
