I have to agree with zathabar. I know things are going to get better, but it takes a certain type of person to log in and poke around in an alpha. Particularly when if you’d end up feeling so isolated, not just because there’s the chance there is no one nearby to fight/ally with, but you can’t even communicate with them very easily. It seems like very few people pay any attention to global chat which seems odd as it is the only means of communication really. Sure there is the smoke signal version that is public messages with ships. But really needs to be more localized commincations and DIRECT communication.
I just now bumped into like no less then 3 folks on my northern border, WAY NORTH. havn’t seen anyone and now all of a sudden 3 people. No clue how far along they are, but now all of a sudden i’m back in full swing cataloging planets so i can complete my intended relocation project to vastly increase resource output and then get this crap kicked into high gear. Think itll get interesting here soon.
