I would like the ability to design and create my own satellites like you can create rovers. From these satellites with factors like orbital path (avoiding mars' moons and other satellites) , signal strength, ability to launch landing craft with the rovers you created, imaging the surface for landing sites, detecting storms that could damage you rovers before they hit the rovers.

Like the idea.. though I'd avoid making this another Kerbal clone (which is an excellent game). Now, I wish things would be as challenging as in Kerbal - the only challenge now is that of patience.
Waiting the rover to cover that 150 meters. Bummer.
Give them time to get the land based sim working nice, and perhaps we can see expansions or updates for ToM for something like this. I do believe they want to make landers controllable in the future.
