    Yeah, I agree. I want to play more but I'm feeling I should wait it out.

    I can understand why they don't want to give exact time frames but it does make things a little frustrating. On top of that, loads of people on the forums seem to have assumed a guesstimate of "a couple of days" to be a promise for exactly two days. I really hope the update does come out tonight - it's just quite possible that it won't.

    Hence why I stopped playing late Friday and I was very much addicted to this game :p Didn't want to ruin it

    Is the server down then until the patch hits?

    It should still be up? I'll go check it now.

    edit: It was down but I've no idea how long for - nobody had complained at me about it :) It's back up now.

    In future if it's down feel free to trust message me :) I won't be leaving it down on purpose for any length of time.

    I've only seen this:

    Starbound ‏@StarboundGame 17h
    Aiming for tomorrow for the new patch, guys! Hopefully it'll help with a lot of you experiencing crashes, too!

    17h ago? I hope it's deployed because I want to play!

    Probably create a MP character to join on the server. And have a SP char. for planetary dominance! :p

    I love the fact you can have a home base, shame we can't set outposts! :)

    Having some kind of shared base/outpost/trading hub I'm sure will be one of the earliest mods in the game after release. Hopefully anyhow :)

    For the peeps playing MP don't forget there is a mumble server you can hop on to hopefully party with some people.

    http://linktart.co.uk/official-linktart-mumble-server/

    There were 26+ players on the other day but it is so tricky to actually play with anyone without comms/setting up a party!

    New rough eta on the patch:

    (11:04:46 AM) Tiy: im working on the patch right now
    (11:04:59 AM) Tiy: hopefully it will be done tonight
    (11:05:01 AM) Tiy: if not early tomorrow
    (11:05:16 AM) Tiy: all the code work is done
    (11:05:21 AM) Tiy: but i have 1000 numbers to tweak and test
    (11:05:24 AM) Tiy: lets see if i can do it in time

    Tiy is one of the developers and UK based I believe so maybe sometime this evening. I think this was posted about an hour ago. (11am is not the UK based time).

    This is looking quite interesting: http://pastebin.com/f6YqE0GY

    (Mon, 06:22:28P) @Tiy: capturing monsters is so ridiculously fun
    (Mon, 06:22:37P) @Tiy: its not finished by a long shot, but the version we push in the update is still really fun
    (Mon, 06:22:53P) @Tiy: yeah pets
    (Mon, 06:23:06P) @Tiy: currently it works like this
    (Mon, 06:23:13P) @Tiy: you craft a creature capture station
    (Mon, 06:23:17P) @Tiy: and use that to craft capture pods
    (Mon, 06:23:24P) @Tiy: you lower certain monsters to lower than 50% health
    (Mon, 06:23:27P) @Tiy: throw a capture pod at them
    (Mon, 06:23:29P) @Tiy: if it hits
    (Mon, 06:23:33P) @Tiy: they go inside and it drops on the floor
    (Mon, 06:23:35P) @Tiy: you pick it up
    (Mon, 06:23:37P) @Tiy: and next time you throw it
    (Mon, 06:23:39P) @Tiy: they pop out
    (Mon, 06:23:40P) @Tiy: follow you around
    (Mon, 06:23:42P) @Tiy: fight for you
    (Mon, 06:23:46P) @Tiy: if they die, they pop back in
    (Mon, 06:23:50P) @Tiy: and you have to pick it up again
    (Mon, 06:23:57P) @Tiy: some stuff NOT in this version
    (Mon, 06:24:05P) @Tiy: theres no way to call them back

    So they have implemented pokemon? Sounds good :) I'm trying to stop myself buying this game and burning out on it while its in beta but its becoming increasingly hard with all the new features appearing.

    Any updates on the patch?
    Currently at work and waiting for the patch before playing some more. Trying not too pour too much time into this is hard especially as there will probably be frequent wipes.

    Nothing yet unfortunately. Just the constant "soon there will be an update about the update" rumours.

    Phew, finally beat X sector. Don't think there's anything beyond Imprevium?
