Q: Do you just restart on the same first planet?
A: NOPE! my first solar system had 4 planets, and i started with the vij'kin race at the space station, i now started in a solar system with only 1 planet and 2 moons, and the korvax was waiting in the spacestation.
Q: Does my old world and finds still exist??
A: NO CLUE!! this is a huge galaxy, who knows, would be fun to find my own old discoveries back
Q: Are you a hacker?
A: Nope, I just looked at the many disable cloud stuff and that did not work, so i went through all the steam folders looking for files that were installed the 12th, and found those BIN files.
Q: Awesome, but why would you start over from scratch?
