Hey, I love this server.
However, being a new player, I feel I should give my first impression/suggestion.
"Survival," has almost no place on this server. Blueprints can be uploaded from a single player creative game (I am ok with that), but users are also given a million credits a day just for voting.... As a new player, I have found absolutely no reason to survive, build a small ship, mine, explore, conquer, etc. when I can just build a gigantic cruiser in singleplayer, vote a few times, and spawn it into the game.
I think the server needs to be given more of a survival feel, where it is rewarding to own a large ship, and crushing when it destroyed. Right now it is lacking that. I have suicided like 4 cruiser size ships for the heck of it, because I can just buy the ship again after I vote. Furthermore, I have no factories, no cargo ships, no miners, because frankly, there is no point....
If it were up to me, I would do one of these things:
1. Disable Local Blueprints. Ships MUST be built on the actual server.
2. Make Blueprints insanely expensive to purchase a ship with. Like, at least 10 times more expensive than building it from scratch.
3. Only give a few thousand credits for voting, or none at all (you already can't use commands until you vote, which makes most people vote).
