Right i seriously HATE this... until now nothing made me more furious than a stupid mechanic as this one... I have already read the arguments and the posts about it and it seems to have gone through one ear and exited the other... Why in all HONESTY would you even bother to put this image in the loading screen when itr is a SERIOUS lie!!!??? Old Quote from @dichebach from the post related to this very issue a year ago which seems to have been completely ignored as these ships STILL forcefully despawn in SINGLE PLAYER!: ""MIGHT I SUGGEST THAT applying the mechanics you have devised to keep your servers running to my offline singleplayer PVE experience is QUITE a BAD design decision? Give us an option toggle: Despawn Timer ON/OFF in singleplayer. Do you NOT understand what the OP was saying!? He/she LOVED your game. You broke it for them. I have a very similar response. The fact you people cannot comprehend how mechanics that are necessary for server performance may have NO BUSINESS in singleplayer mode is shockingly dense."" Is it too hard to ask to give players the option to deactivate this stupid mechanic in single player? SINGLE PLAYER???! I get it it was done for multiplayer but there are those of us who don't play MULTIPLAYER and to force such a dumb mechanic on a single player is ABHORRANT! I don't know WHAT you've been doing until now, i don't care, but the scandal is LITERALLY in the THOUSANDS of people who don't like this... I don't have to mention Spanj do i? He has been mentioned in that post, and the defence was "He reported the bug" but i'm pretty sure He still hates ships despawning... And when you devs say it is easier to complain here's a respone: HOW ELSE IS A PLAYER GOING TO SAY THEY ARE SERIOUSLY DISAPOINTED IN THE GAME THEY BOUGHT TO PLAY?!? How else are we going to change something we don't like? Complaints are a good thing when you make a game for public consumption, they tell the producer the good is BROKEN!
