PvE vs. PvP playfields
- In PvE playfields, you cannot do any damage to other players or player-built blocks. However, you can do damage to alien buildings as long as they have an alien core (if you destroy the alien core, they are considered as "no faction" and further weapon fire will do no damage to any blocks. From then on, you can only remove blocks with removal & repair tool - see below)
- In PvP playfields, you can do damage to other players and blocks like in the previous version
Removal & Repair tool
- The removal & repair tool can only remove blocks of your own faction, public faction and the no-faction structures.
- As a result, you cannot use it to break into "alien faction" structures anymore. At least as long as they still have an alien core
Ownership / Factions (Overview)
- You can only access cargo boxes, constructors, cockpits, etc if they belong to your own faction.
- In addition, you can access any block that belongs to the public faction, of course.
- You can only access the control panel of structures if they belong to your own faction or to the public faction
- Doors open only on structures if they belong to your faction or to the public faction
- If you have not created or joined a faction, you can change your bases and vehicles between "private" or "public" use. Private has the same rules as if you were in a one-player-faction.
- IMPORTANT: If you are a member of a faction and change a base or vessel from public or private use to "only by your faction" in the Control Panel dropdown, this can NOT be reverted back to "public" (yet).
- If you are not a member of a faction, you can switch from public to private back and forth.
