Are there going to be more character resets?
I'm just curious how many more times characters will be deleted. The last time I had finally mined enough titanium to craft things I needed, and the next day I had to start over. The first five times this happened it was a let down, but I understand why. I just don't want to play anymore if I'm going to lose the time I've invested. Don't get me wrong, I love this game, but I hate spending tedious hours mining (seriously the mining in this game is pretty tedious) and then finding out I have to do it all over again when I finally reached a point where I could craft things that allowed me to explore more. Again to be clear, I am seriously loving this game, but every time I've found enough titanium to get a little deeper, or to craft something I really need to further explore it seems the avatars are deleted. To the devs: I love this game, I'm super stoked I gave you my money to help make this awesome game, I'm just tired of the constant character resets. Is this going to happen again? I understand with the development process it might be unavoidable, but I would prefer to wait to play when I know I can log in and continue my progress, not have to start all over. Please keep up the good work. (no sarcasm there, I'm being honest)

This is the problem with "beta testers" and people buying into betas. They get it to "play the game". This wasn't being offered for early access for you to play with all your leisure. You're supposed to be beta testing the game. Finding bugs, finding balancing issues, coming up with ideas to make the game better.

Dude, I totally get that, I was just curious. No need to be a ♥♥♥♥ about it. I am firmly aware what beta testing is, and I knew this would be something that would happen. I was really just curious. I love this game, and I'm seriously happy with the devs. It was just a question.

Quick edit, I wasn't trying to be a ♥♥♥♥ Mr. Neeson, I was just curious. It's hard to get far enough to do the testing you speak of. I don't totally mind the restart, it was just a question.

The simple answer is we do not know. We don't wipe characters frequently, basically when something changes drastically. The next patch may do it again, because we have been insane busy. To make up for that though, you'll start to see things like this:

We understand that people don't like being set back, but sometimes you have to take a couple steps back to make many forward.

No worries, like I said above, I love the work you are doing. I think its just that finding titanium is such a pain in the ♥♥♥ that every time I seem to have enough to make stuff I have to start over. To be fair, I've only put about 3 or 4 hours into the steam release. And again, you guys freaking rule and I seriously love this game.

My post came off dickish than it was supposed to be. Super tired and didn't really notice the "nose in the air" theme of the post haha. Sorry good sir.

No worries man, I took no offence, I wanted you to know I wasn't being a ♥♥♥♥. There's way too much of that in these forums. I worked on Forge as a level designer and after our recent move to free to play I've been getting a ton of death threats and worse, I was trying to ask a simple question and let the devs know I'm a huge fan of their work. Also the reason why my response back to you wasn't rude. (I hope anyway!) As far as I'm concerned, as gamers we're all kids in a sandbox, fighting over what the sand is does no good. Thanks for being cool about it and cheers!

Just so it's known, we are thinking of things we might give to people who had to deal with your situation right now.

Please bare with us, as we are doing the best we can to preserve characters but at the same time it is still development so it happens. Also there might be times where we load you out for past tier one for testing with a new character. Right now a lot of effort is making sure that first experience is really solid and sets the pace well.

Dude, you guys are making a fantastic game that I'll likely spend hundreds of hours playing. You don't owe me ♥♥♥♥. I get to watch your awesome product evolve and turn into something amazing. That is payment in and of itself.

Hey no worries there Devs. I don't normally like character wipes but in the name of game development, I am all for it. I have so much damn free time until january I have to find ♥♥♥♥ to do, so playing this game is one of those things quite frequently lol.

I saw the fallout from that, it was absolutely ridiculous. I'm sorry you had to be put through that. *indie supportive hugs!*

Thanks, I have pretty thick skin, but wow, some of that was terrible. I mostly feel bad for the guys at Dark Vale (they came up with the idea and funded it) who still have to deal with it. Thankfully it appears that most of the hate is over with now. Again, I love what you guys are doing with Edge of Space, I bought the pre-order on Desura just because even in those early stages it looked amazing. The work you guys have put into it since then is remarkable, and I really have loved watching it evolve. Keep up the great work guys!

If that was RL you know that dude would fly off that thing right?

It's all right but I rather see spaceships, with O2 Generators built into them. :)

Indeed, I've been waiting since the mid-80's for a hoverboard.
