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.”

It is a beta, I would expect wipes as part of the process.

I don't think anyone's doing anything but messing around at the moment. I have been clearing my backlog while I wait. Oh and finally hitting 500 hours played on Skyrim. Woot!

Really looking forward to this, I haven't done much more than casually just goof around because I was dreading a wipe after I had a character I really wanted to keep.

Same here. I do appreciate the tutorial, in the form of quests...that's a nice touch.

Although a bummer - glad I quit playing. I think MrGrosser and I had pretty muched explored what they currently had to offer anyway (check screens on Steam) - now going to wait until final release for more content.

Good I've held off playing this because I don't feel liking starting over with each patch.
