The PvP server I frequent is plagued by the optimal spawn distance exploit--see my bug report here. TL,DR, if automatic respawn is off, people can choose "space suit" and find others very easily due to the hard-coded "optimal spawn distance" setting, which spawns you near another player in space. We are trying to get a mod to move space suit spawns to center immediately, but that mod will be challenging to make and resource intensive if it even works. Has anyone found a way to disable the new spawn mechanic other than turning on automatic respawn? Or another work around? Also, please vote for bug reports so that Keen sees game-breaking problems like this.
