Starter planets, are way way too difficult for new players.
« on: 10 September, 2017, 21:13:39 pm »
Hey guys, Im mainly making this post for friends I've had join the server recently, but the current difficulty of starter planets is way too hard. I actually did a fresh start recently to try and play with them/teach them. I couldn't believe how hard the starter planets really were. I feel like alot of players are rage quitting this server because they don't last 2 mins before being eaten by something. Its sort of hard to learn all the in depth mechanics of this game while your constantly fighting for your life.

PS: Is there a reason you can't choose your starter planet anymore??

PPS: My fresh start is also locked to Carina atm, and whenever I try and spawn there my game crashes. Upon rejoining im on Carina with no space suit. (managed to escape with a friends help and im ok now, but is there a way to reset my fresh start planet without a full character reset?)

Howdy - by design, I made them a bit harder than default but there's really not much difference. Creatures will spawn at the game's choosing, we can choose the quantity but the placement is random. Perhaps you have just been unlucky, not sure.

PS: Is there a reason you can't choose your starter planet anymore??

You will always be able to choose between any of the three starter planets, however I did made three groups of them as well, so we actually have 9 in total, with 3 being available at any given time. Once the first group of three became quite full and lacking resources, I changed the starters to the next group of three, and so forth, so players can always find resources and have a fair go. Once the 7th, 8th and 9th planet become full, I reset the first three and we go again in a cycle. It gives new players at least 2 months to "get off" the starters before they get reset.

I can delete your character completely if you wish, however at the moment the "Carina System" is the starter system so you will still need to choose from Auriga, Lyra, and Carina as a starter planet.

I recently restarted and it was cool, i had a few item's built in my production que that i never spawned until i restarted the game this made it very easy to start again ,and i found i had kept my suit also .
