    People are trying to start a roleplay server right now, but game mechanics make it hard. Really hoping for a local chat...

    For now, discord is your best bet there. There's a mod that links discord to the emp chat.

    I"ve put like 800 hrs into this game and for now building is the only thing I still find amusing. I have spent a ton of time lately trying to come up with a RP server but it's way too much work as I'm sure you already know. The mechanics just arent't in place and it's too easy to cheat the rules.

    I have come up with this:

    -Simply remove all but the most basic survival blueprints from the player.
    -Limit all XP rewards to nothing, so that players can't earn XP
    -Design a system of rewarding credtits/gold for completing tasks.

    It would literally take like 2 in-game windows:

    - 1 for trading and employment (public)
    - 1 for your personal business and account managing (private)

    The players themselves will create the RP element on their own if they have to work for money rather than just have every single aspect of the game for free. It would easily create farming, mining, manufacturing and trading colonies right off the bat. Over time government and policing as well as criminals and bounty hunting, who knows what else.

    The trick to having it work is that the Admins have to enable blueprints for people manually. Admins could be viewed as some alien race far more advanced than our own, right? Admins would have to be pretty honest folks because they can ruin the entire server.

    Thoughts? Am I crazy?
