Reading about it, it sounds great.  This must be because reading Elbows's account takes a fraction of the time it would take to actually do those things.  They need to fix the bootstrapping problem.

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

That's a problem present in pretty much any worldy game. Examine the time it takes to get out of a frigate into a cruiser or AF in Eve when you have no-one to help you with advice or loans, or the time it takes to get bootstrapped into a decent camp in ATITD.

I played this game for about 4h this weekend.  Here's how I'd sum up the experience:

1) The game isn't intuitive enough.

2) The playerbase will be its demise. 

I like the fact that there are significantly fewer carebears than in atitd and that it doesn't feel so much like "High School Online".  I also can deeply appreciate the sim that they're shooting for.  I think this could be a very fun concept with some polish... I just don't know how they can generate content at a rate fast enough to keep most players interested.

Maybe I was on at the wrong time, but the air was tense in the same way as it was in the gym shower just before the guy who failed two grades came in to take your clothes and wallet.

The interface definitely needs some work.

Understatement of the month. Documentation would also help a lot; the wiki is pretty sparse on things like, oh, how long it takes to cook food. Or, really, anything beyond either the extremely esoteric or the extremely basic.
