Procedural generated worlds are coming packed with asteroids and possibly infinite, and AI is coming as well. I don't really feel for those who played when it was only SP, the game is a sandbox, people who get into it must know that and moreover being in Alpha, your imagination is what you rely on. If we look at SE state in Alpha, and MC state in Alpha, MC was literally nothingness but look at it now. The game I became addicted to because of the advanced features was the same I hated when I tried it mid-alpha. What's the problem with playing SP as it was before (creative only)? It's a sandbox, hence get in, make yourself a goal, and do it. Build bigger and better things, more productive, more detailed, more complex. There's plenty to do until AI/etc. comes, and if you can't find what to do, a sandbox game is not for you. Yes, the game needs more depth in survival. I'm not bothered about it because I have plenty of projects to do, and there's plenty of time before this game goes through alpha and beta to imagine how many features will be added by then.
