NEW RECRUIT-A-FRIEND PROGRAM

Aaaand delayed a month. Apparently they never made sure it actually worked with their code redemption system when designing and building it. Amazing. Oh, and it won't be retroactively fixed, so any friends who join the first month won't count.

The servers are all making GBS threads the bed pretty hard today. It seems like every few hours their official Discord announces another server reset.

Fear not - there will be many more gold-rushes! There is another going on right now. Wrecks returning soon will be a good'n.

What is the current gold rush? I'm poor and need more space bucks.

So, besides the connection problems and expected jank, what's the general opinion on this?

The people who are playing it really enjoy it. But you gotta be the kind of person who enjoys building things as that is largely what the game is about right now. You build up bases, create industrial production lines, pump out products, and build big ships with them.

We ended up claiming the territory on the exact north pole of Alioth Moon 4 and we are going to build Santa's Workshop there, complete with snow men and candy canes. If you stand there your compass spins in circles too so it is pretty funny.

We've built a platform up in space around the Sanctuary moon and we are building a massive industrial base up there. So far everybody's managed to kill themselves trying to land on it at least once as it is still within the planet's gravity.

Some of the goons are trying to script orbital taxis that automatically take you from the sea base to the space base via the in-game Lua scripting. Some people have made ships rise and fall. They just need to get them to move and land on the space base.

You just have to have an interesting idea you want to accomplish, either with scripting or playing with voxels, and the will to accomplish it. There is also PvP, but none of us are really at the point where we are making PvP ships (and that is the same with most of the player base aside from the hardcore closed alpha PvP guilds). There will definitely be more stuff to do in the future, though, but right now it's like old-school Minecraft before the survival mode was added. Sorta.

I think the J4G joined to spy our secrets, clearly laid out in code in the forums.

Silmerias has been around for many years. I have no idea why he has an Aug 2020 account. But his criticisms of the game are valid (although the stability concerns are largely resolved as of now). The game honestly needs a lot more work before it is anything but a fancy building sandbox.

What org are you guys in? I used to play back a few months ago but stopped because I didn't think any goons didn't stuff. I'd be down to pilot some poo poo and get blown up.

Wyldy Inappropriate. Discord link is at the end of the OP.
