    Always and forever. :)
    For me, I always assume I will be starting a new game when a new release comes out.

    I'm not meaning to read as snarky, but any updates to the POI's require a new game for the changes to take effect.
    It's a limitation of the game engine.

    Ummm...
    Any way this can be removed from the starter area?
    I promptly experienced a FireRain storm not long after starting a new game and I died before I could make it to Opportunity.

    Ummm...
    The pirate faction has a presence on Skillion now?

    *** edit ***
    There is a trader under the wreckage, I guess this was how they added a trader to Skillion.

    That's why I'm a notorious cheater. :)
    Save your blueprints, start a new game, cheat until you are at the same point you were before.
    Then go back to playing normally.

    There may also be another glitch with this build.

    NPC's are not spawning in the POI's for me.
    Abandoned Vessel Yard, Abandoned Workshop, even the Collection Points.

    No NPC's are spawning in the POI's and the enemy turrets are leaving me alone.

    I an going to restart me game, maybe there was a glitch in the beginning.

    *** Edit ***

    Restarting the game fixed the issue, it was fun while it lasted.

    Yeouch!

    Now that the NPC's are spawning in the POI's again I think I need to drop a warning.
    Stay away from the collection points on Skillion unless you are well armed.

    Please can you guys at Eleon allow the player to restart from the main menu... I'm finding it more than mildly annoying to C.A.D or Windows key every time I wish to restart at a different planet when my char has been killed.
    C'mon guys it's common sense to have a return to main menu as an option, especially as we're all trying new lands and features.

    Hello,

    EDIT: NEVERMIND. Apparently removing the pilot seat and puting it on again fixes the problem.

    regarding the:
    "Fixes:
    - 00248: CV Passenger seat glitch"

    you did fix the glight for the passenger but this occurs as well for the PILOT . I am currently playing with my bfriend and I, as a passenger, can press V and look around, althou he still cannot. Just freezes, controls don't work, nothing, has to relog. Not able to fly in CV with 3rd person view.

    Cheers,
    byzy

    And I still can't believe they actually release an official 1.8 version while the sensors are broken.
    It is just a speculation since I don't know exactly how they work, but that bug may have also broken lot of POIs.
    The NPCs not spawning may be related to that bug.
