    I've got about 10 hours on it, not as much as most, but that will soon change :P

    If you play the Avian race and die, you turn into a baby chick that hatches from an egg before growing up.

    I play Apex, you're grown in a test tube, skeleton first, fleshed out into a human, then are injected with a compound which makes you grow monkey level fur all over the place.

    Bit creepy really :P

    The UFO was defeated by using cowardice for me
    Find a place where you can go underground, but have line of sight up to the ground. Summon the UFO, go underground and use the iron bow on it. It will drop penguins but some will land on the surface, some will land elsewhere in the cave you are in, just keep firing at the UFO.
    Providing there's enough dirt between you and it, you should be able to get the UFO down to 1/4 health before it gets through to you. It's just a case of focusing on the UFO and ignoring the penguins unless they specifically see you. I had two penguins about 3 blocks away from me but couldn't see me, so I left them. Once the UFO is down, be careful as the penguins stick around, so heal before jumping out if you need to.

    They've also changed how you get silver armour now. You have to craft the metalwork station (by defeating the UFO), make the starmap blueprints (which enable you to go to beta sector) and use them, this then gives you more options in crafting.

    BTW, if you ever see an anchor and chain going up from the ground, follow it up with wood platforms, there's most likely a floating airship with vendors and lots of loot. Just dont make the mistake I did and get scared, fire on them first and have them attack you....they usually are friendly unless you attack

    Have you found the Apex testing facilities? Couple of planets I've been on have zombiefied Apex and monkeys in labcoats, and loads of the test tubes around. I think you can also craft an Apex spawn thing.

    I have not! I'll have to keep an eye out for this. Rolled a Flower Man last night (Floran is it?) , haven't died so haven't seen his spawn animation, he does have the appropriate name of "Meat Puncher" though.

    Anyone still on this? The recent patch means I started my third character!

    Not played it for a good while. Don't think I will play it 'seriously' either until wipes are no longer needed.

    Some of the homes people have built and posted on Reddit are incredible! To think of all those hours put in to build top tier epic buildings/ships etc, o0nly to have them wiped must be a right blow!

    That's all part of beta! They have warning when they buy.

    Yea, I'm aware they are part of the ongoing development process. I just choose not to put too much time in it because of the wipes.

    I'm very impressed with this game. I enjoyed Terraria but this is just so much more fun. A friend is running a server and I'm up to the Gamma sector, but with another wipe coming this week I'm bracing myself for losing my character again D:

    Apparently you can edit your saves, though, but that's a road I don't want to go down :P

    As a note, there's a completely-vanilla-compatable mod that allows you to dismantle and re-build your ship (and everyone else will see the changes, too!) - might be worth a look-see.
