This was my first server of Starbound, but I've been on publicly hosted servers of Terraria or Minecraft. Being as this game is still early access, my opinion will change as the game stabilizes. That being said... Pros: - Trustworthy community (from who I've talked to) - 'Play it your way' style (choose whether to skip the quest line and just explore) - Beautiful Spawn (Very well done) - Fast response time on forums (though I might've been lucky) Cons: - Some members seem to be careless about other people's frame rates/headphones (Even some of the coloured named-members, which I'm guessing are staff/VIP?) - There isn't really any reason to leave spawn, which is fine if you like the chatroom-esk play but it'd be nice to have some sort of contest or events to inspire people to explore - Even though spawn looks beautiful, it sorta gives a little TOO much (all the crafting tables available) in my opinion - The server crashes a lot- I'm not sure if this is due to the game being in alpha, people crashing it, or even just faulty connection but it does make things difficult (like losing work or items because you were in the middle of placing it/moving it). Now since I don't know much about Starbound, and since it's early access, I doubt the Cons can really be fixed without knowledge of coding.. but they're just my opinions/views. Overall I think you guys are doing a good job, and seem to be the best put-together team (that I've seen so far).
