So i was thinking, hey, water will most likely be added soon along with boats. But wouldn't it be cool if you could get water wheels that generate electricity for your buildings? Like an upgraded targeting computer that requires electricity rather than coal.
Also submarines would be a great addition too, so if you get a complete water filled map you can go underwater to attack, I mean we have aerial torpedoes so why not normal ones too :P
Now this is just an idea and I can't really expand on it since you know what open world is.
So we have offline conquests against bots but it would be awesome if you could do like an hour match with friends or random people online!
So it kind of goes along with the idea of open world but not completely. Okay, so everyone knows that floating islands are being held up by the suspendium ore right? Well what if you could mine the resource from it, then you could sell it to get more money in conquest mode.
A new block that lets you create small cheap ships, either pre-made or on the spot. I think it would work better for buildings then for airships or landships, mainly because they're in one position so building the ship wouldn't be too heptic.
LAST ONE, sorry it's sooo big, DECOUPLERS;
So say you have a massive ship, two bridges on either side. You click on the decouplers and there is a button that says decouple, you press it and your massive ship splits into two smaller ships.
Tbh that is my favourite idea, but I know how hard coding is so i doubt it's possible XD

You can fix the ship logic by having the decoupler block be two decoupler blocks that must touch one another, each one also would act as a mother/child marker for recoupling.
For example you could have decoupler sets 1 and 2 (which is actually 4 decouplers) and decoupler child 1 will reattach with decoupler mother 1, and C2 with M2.
Speaking of Decouplers (which I really, really want to exist) we could capitalize on them with this idea:
