Before reading this, please understand... the feature mentioned in this topic is intended to be "Optional" and you will not be enforced to it on all servers, the server owners are meant to be given a choice that affects their servers only. - - - - - - As a server host to me server administration tools are absolutely essential to run a successfull starbound server. Back in 2014 we have been promised an essential feature to be implemented during either BETA stage of development or upon release of the game. It is now 2016, the game has gotten it's official release, but the feature is nowhere to be seen, no signs of even talks about it from the developers on the internet. This concerns me and I am sure concerns many both players & hosts out there who would be interested in trying to play/host a PUBLIC multiplayer game for this feature would essentially eliminate majority of cheaters who would just cheat in single player then bring it to the servers. Also Terraria community has achieved fully functional Server Side Characters with no problems, I don't see how this would be a problem for the developers to do. - - - - - - """Quoted from Starbound FAQ page""" Is there an option to create server side characters? Characters are saved locally. Characters will be able to get saved server sided later into the beta or release. """Quoted from Starbound FAQ page""" Reference: starbounder.org/FAQ I would like to request people who are server hosts like my self and/or players who support this to help spread the word and get Dev's attention, so that it may be implemented during what little content updates we got left in the near future.
