    Hey Survivalists,

    a short announcement that with the next big patch we will also wipe the official servers (public + EU + US).
    When: as soon as it will be released. (probably before Christmas)


    In that move the Public server will be set to pure Vanilla again (MP Scenario) and the EU and US server still using the Invader vs Defender Scenario.

    However the Invader vs Defender Scenario will be finally updated with some of your feedback and enhancements like

    • More water on other planets to reduce the heavy load for Valea
    • More PDA interactions
    • More Missions
    • Better resource contribution
    • Implementation of recent added features

    And once again sorry for some inconveniences we experienced the last season. Be it the file corruption or broken patch (RAM exception)! Should hopefully not happen again.

    Nevertheless with 1199 players joined on the EU, 1162 players joined the US and 775 players joined the Public official servers it's good to see so many enjoying the game.

    So stay tuned for an even better season! :)

    What, if any, effect does this have on those of us playing SP on our home computers?
    Please pardon my ignorance.

    Does this mean that only buildings and ships are erased? Or is this the entire character?

    Hey, it depends how old your SP savegame is. In general Eleon always try to be backwards compatible so you can continue playing.
    However it means the new NPC Trader feature or other features are not in your savegame then.

    Also depends on the server owner. There are basically three options.
    1. they don't care at all and keep running with all the legacy
    2. they don't full wipe but implementing the features step by step by partial playfield wipes
    3. they full wipe
    Pretty much everything. But for the next season we will turn on our Orbital Auto Miner at least for the US and EU server to have a bit of a wipe assurance.

    I play on EU official server.
    Sorry for being a bit dumb is all of the resources put in to the Blueprint factory will wipe as well including blueprints already made?
    What about your character Level?
    Please don't wipe I have a week's worth of resources in my blueprint factory,
    Please let me know as I don't know if I should continue playing multiplayer or go to play on creator for now and wait for an update?

    By the way developers I love Empirion Galactic Survival thank you so much for a wonderful game.

    I expect everything will be wiped, including character level, as with previous wipes. Several of us have weeks worth of bases and other construction.

    Already answered all variation of the same question: everything will be wiped!

    Cool that you know about my work here but official servers are not connected to HWS in any way. Don't know how that question coming up.
    Maybe one day I have time to implement the Connect feature to other servers but for now it is a HWS only feature.

    Hi

    According to Eleon, the 7.5 is released today.
    They wrote on Friday: We are planning to push Build 1416 to the public at Dec 16.
    I suspect the time again between 10 o'clock and 12 o'clock.
    As with the last big patches.
