Can the decay rate be removed or only active when a player is logged in. I cannot play this game every night to repair my station/ship. I feel like your leaving a group of players from ever touching your game after they buy it. It is very disheartening to spend hours building a station to have it decay away if you don't log in every day or two. There is a great amount of promise in this game but I stopped playing this game after the decay system was introduced. The game is going to need players to keep growing and if the game is only built for the few who can play this game everyday then the player base will never grow.
I understand that this is a method to deal with large amount of stations/ships being left on a server. Having those objects assigned to a player and if they start fresh then let the decay system slowly break them down if there is not a owner assigned to them. Also if it is a worry that objects will spawn in the same location for random derelict or fresh start players, just randomize it. Pulling the players station out of the game universe while they are not logged is will clear the server up and prevent loss of time invested.
