I jumped in and I'm very happy with the engine performance. I haven't flown for awhile now (still haven't) and still haven't tried the fps combat, but I'm excited for it.
My big wish pulls:::::
1. persistent galaxy large enough to get lost in.
2. Gathering/harvesting. Ability to sell or use resources to craft. (was crafting a thing or did I just dream that up?) Been so long.
3. Combat missions that acquire some form of credits/funds to be spent on a large variety of usable items.
4. No server wipes.
