    Hey guys,

    I was wondering whether some people would be interested in trying a combined online/offline play using SEToolbox, A Dropbox and a Steamgroup/TS3.

    The idea is this: We set up a Dropbox folder where everyone can upload their SP-saves. When several guys are online, someone starts up a clear save and people can "fly over" with ships of their choice using SE-Toolbox. We play together, and when a session ends, the host uploads the save into the dropbox and people can import the ships back into their SP-save.

    This would take some time to set up for each session, to be sure, and it would require trust between the players. On the plus side, there would be no need to play separate single player and a multi-player games, and griefing will be hard because there are backups of everything. It really wouldn't matter much if someone decided to cheat using creative mode, since it's not a competition, and they'd mostly be ruining their own fun. Nevertheless, if it works out well, we could do PVP sessions every now and then.

    What do you guys think, would that be a feasible way of doing stuff?

    Would any EU-Players be interested to join such an experiment? (EU player because the server group should be somewhat geographically together, so there will not be 3 different multiplayer servers every day, and we can try to set up semi-fixed dates for the multi-player sessions.)

    P.S. You can also add me in Steam if you are interested, the nick is also "Cronos988".
