I might be the only one, but I found that load times and server connection was significantly better in this last test than in the previous one. I found that the commands that I issued were carried out much faster and much more consistently than in the last test.
I also have noticed that commands are carried out quicker and I had less lag but after my game running for a couple of hours it started lagging and it eventually crashed. With load times mine varied a lot from quite quick or 4 mins max. It is definitely noticeable how Snowforged have improved the game from the last test.
Ooo is that a freighter full of resources O_o... *Few minutes later* Mine! Mine!Mine!
