By Groups / Clans / Factions I mean things like if you were in a game with a group of people you could for example do a 2V2 race to another planet type of thing and so what I am thinking is maybe the ability to have seperate groups which only see your own beacons and ones from people in your group but other lone people or other groups cant see them or the icon that pops up to signify other characters (Unless in the same group). I think this could also be good if things like the base you build (For example the research station) is locked to other players in other groups and they get a seperate pod to build their own base on and instead of having PVP with things like guns and weapons you can have like a race to leave the planet which I think would make the game incredibley fun to play with friends if you want a break from co-op...

I get that the game is supposed to be very passive about fighting and stuff which is why I don't suggest that the groups battle I just think it would be a neat idea to do for a diverse gameplay instead of it just being always a team and then even if you and your friends have been to all of the planets and exploration is no longer a big goal (unless of course more randomly generated exploration becomes a reality) then this means that you wont get bored of playing ASTRONEER with your friends...

Not that I could ever get bored of it...

I dont see any use...since it all seems to be a static time to get to and all that..its just who gets to the ship first. And since beacons dont disappear after passing them..cgeckpoints would get confusing unless its a straight-ish line kinda race. I find this difficult to imagine without giving the player the ability to control take off and orbit entry like KSP. 

That doesnt even take into account a 2v2 would get old rather quickly to most and then every one would want this game to be 16+player. Which i dont think is the concept behind this project. But thats just me
