    I have a month between WP contracts so I thought I'd spend it writing a space trading game. Its coming along well but I'm at the point now where I have an auto generated galaxy with planets and resources but I problem that always gets me and that is what the 'pull' is that will make this game the most fun for the most players.

    In a typical space trading game what is it that makes you want to play more? Is it :-

    Discovery of new planets?
    Desire to make more money?
    Discovery of best trading routes?
    Increasing your cargo hold to carry bigger / more goods?

    something else?

    I suspect its a bit of everything but any guidance will be appreciated.

    Thanks

    For me its usually enemies. There has got to be a decent threat level - possibility of getting hit by pirates and losing good/money
