Last Starbound Character Wipe Coming

The Starbound website has details on the next patch for the space game, offering a detailed change list on what this adds, including a permadeath gameplay mode (thanks PCGamesN). The update also reveals this will include the last planned character wipe, though it's possible another world wipe will come. Here's word:

Of course, there’s also the highly anticipated/possibly feared final character wipe– this patch contains a fix for save files so after this, you won’t need to worry about our patches destroying your characters or ships. This patch will wipe everything– characters, ships and worlds. It will definitely be the last time we’ll need to wipe characters or ships, and will hopefully be the last time we’ll need to wipe worlds. This explanation from Kyren should help clarify things a little:

“The problem is that the organization of planets may change so if they go muck with a planet, how do we put it in the celestial map? Or if they build on a biome we remove, or something. So no promises, but we’ll try. But promises on the player / ship.”
