Even aside from the logistics, Modular Container system, Carbon Substrate and other changes in A9, I'm noticing that gameplay is quite a bit different than before. One of the aspects which I find strange is how severe the restrictions seem to be in regard to interactions with a faction, even when the player is at Friendly relations with them. The fact that it is strict is not surprising. It only makes sense that, especially with Polaris, certain areas are off limits, certain devices or facilities are employees only, and theft from containers would be greatly frowned upon or punished. However, it seems rather harsh that opening just one container - even when nothing was taken - will turn them Unfriendly and have them start shooting at you. The least the game could do is give the player a warning, asking to confirm if you are sure. This is particularly worrisome considering that the default key to open a container (or interact with stuff) is "F", which just so happens to be right next to the WASD direction keys. If a player isn't looking at the keyboard - say, after taking a break or moving one's hand - they might accidentally hit "F" when they were trying to hit "D" for moving right. Such a blunder is sure to happen. I'm constantly afraid that that I might do this whenever I visit a faction, making me extra mindful of which keys I press and where I place my hand. Also, I am seeing some inconsistencies on these restrictions. And some of these restrictions do not make much sense. For example: Harvesting a plant (anything: Akua berries, Kavae beans, etc...) on the Polaris Trading Station will instantly turn Polaris hostile, having them start shooting at you. However, unlike with hovering the pointer over a faction container, there is absolutely no warning that harvesting the plant will impact relations! Also, if you visit Polaris' "Settlement" facility and pick any of the farm-able crops in the greenhouse area, nothing happens. They don't care. There's even an "Aunt Mary's" trader right there. That harvesting a plant would have such a huge negative impact on relations with Polaris is strange. They're a mining corporation. And look at the "RP Action Matrix Table" in this post. PlantHarvest has a very tiny -10 impact to relations with Talon, but it doesn't do anything to Polaris. Other than picking from their Trading Station, Polaris doesn't care. Why is it that most toilets are unavailable to players, but there are a few which are available? In one case, I saw one room with a toilet that was faction-only and then, on the other side of the same facility, there was a nearly identical room with a toilet that was available for public use. Aside from the toilets in private rooms - which would be understandable - I think most toilets should have public access. And, why is it that the majority of O2 Stations in Polaris facilities are faction only? Granted, there are public-access O2 Stations on the Polaris Trading Station. And, rarely, I'll find a public-access O2 in a different Polaris facility. But that seems to be the exception. Most are faction only. But... Oxygen? Even visitors and customers need to breath! Geez! It's not like we can take that oxygen and sell it. All an O2 Station can do is fill our suit's reserve. Some other inconsistencies: Most Fridges are faction-only, opening them being treated the same as opening a Container. However, there are a very few which are public access. I even found Cheese in one of them and took it, but there was no consequence. Though very rare, there are also a few (deco or furniture) containers which are public access. I found a weapon upgrade kit in one and took it, but there was no consequence. Armor Lockers and Repair Stations are still public access, thank goodness! However, while the Advanced Constructor and the Furnace in Polaris facilities are technically public access, in practice it is quite impossible to use them. Due to the changes in logistics, a Large or Advanced Constructor or a Furnace needs to be connected to a Container before they can be used. However, because none of the containers (that would qualify as an Input or Output) are public access, there is no using them. Perhaps it was intentional to make the Polaris Advanced Constructor and Furnace unavailable to the player. Though, if that's the case: Instead of being able to access the device's use menu, I wish that was blocked. (Accessing it feels like the game is teasing us and I'd imagine this would confuse new players.) Alternatively, if this was unintentional, perhaps such facilities could have 1 nearby Container that's public access?
