So I came back to Boundless after a long break, probably 6+ months, went from fully coiled machines and limitless stacks of everything to whatever I happened to have in my pockets after my beacons expired. Losses were easily in the millions, didn’t really lose much sleep over it though.
When I would consider coming back, I would think “Oh man, all that stuff I lost…” and dread the work it was going to take to rebuild and I’d put Boundless off for another couple weeks…
Long story short, none of that even matters. I picked Boundless up again, dusted myself off and you know what? Banging rocks with an iron hammer on a T3 world is fun! If anything, it has been refreshing to rebuild from almost zero… I still have my characters and skills, plus a clean slate to build a base from without having to move all those pesky worldly possessions. Boundless feels wild and free, like I’ve finally escaped the grind. Before my loop was gems, gems, more gems, must mine gems… Now it’s, “Uhh… oh, I need a spark generator to build a refinery?? And cogs? How do I make those again?”
My only regret is I wish I had given my stuff away, but hopefully people saw the decomposing plot and looted it… I hope I made someone’s day and it didn’t all just go to waste. But to anyone thinking about returning, just do it. Log in, bang some rocks, built a work bench… could be fun
