Oh, congrats to the new parents, then!
As for choppy frames, that's flash for ya. :P
Not sure bout the volume, I don't think that was included in BM1.
Anyway, that's the kind of gameplay I’m intending to do, though I’ll have to add some way of difficulty management, as in those games it's very hard to get around in the beginning, but as soon as you get a planet or more it rapidly grows too easy since owned planets make money, but do not provide any difficulties past an occasional, almost negligible enemy attack.
Sounds good to me. I'm sure you've already found the tutorials on the wiki but I couldn't recommend them too much, especially the community ones.
Bonjour Mhyre et bienvenue!
Sounds like you're pretty busy. Best of luck with all those projects at the same time, I sure wouldn't be able to do that much.
