Economic balance is horrible, and this game is the very definition of a GRIND.
Truth. There is no sense to the economics: goods are randomly produced in different locations, and demand and supply also fluctuate randomly, making it impossible to earn any amount of consistent income. On top of that, it takes an exorbitant amount to afford any upgrades.
My video review is going up tomorrow.

Worth noting that the update today is the 3rd update in a row where they said to make the start easier.... makes you wonder what they did during early access...

From what I saw no let's player ever actually got beyond the starting quest.. not a good sign. Economic balance is horrible, and this game is the very definition of a GRIND.
