Thank you! I know you guys have only the best intentions and you’re stuck between a rock and a hard place, trying to keep everyone happy.
It’s good to know you see the problem and the unintended consequences of this update.Im going to stay positive and patient. People can wait for a plot for a few days.
The saddest part of all of this is the reason we need this “protection” at all. It comes down to two things…
First… beacon campers and trolls who push others to needing this type of solution. If people would just “play nice in the sandbox” we wouldn’t need this.
Second… new players who spawn in and lay down their first build as per the tutorial. Then they move on… because most people don’t stay where they first build. They don’t even realize they are doing anything wrong… they just haven’t figured out that our society has issues with this random build popping up.(thanks to the trolls).
There is nothing we can do about the trolls… trolls will be trolls. We can just only hope they don’t have gleam club so their trolly beacons will die sooner rather than later.
The second… we can fix. What if when people start the game, they go to a temporary planet as they go through the tutorial. Then after hitting level 20, let’s say… then they can leave their starter planet and find their place in the universe. They could perhaps still travel to the rest of the universe, but won’t be able to plot or build anywhere else until they have finished with the tutorial.
