General gameplay - Feature suggestions
General issues with the game. Let us know what is causing the most troubles for you -
I feel the role play / immersion factor could be improved.
My dream would be an role play server, where you spawn on an indestructible station, and are given a room and hanger for yourself and som...
Single buttons / levers
