Sadly did not change my mind about the game. And, I don't care how empty it is - It's a decent game that lets you explore a randomly-generated universe, letting you trade with other entities. You could be what you want to be - an explorer - without (almost) no-one interfering with your progress. That's what makes it great for me. Plus, as far as I know, it's in beta. Of course there's going to be some flaws.
TLDR; I'm still buying the game.
