@Chan_aar the “alpha skill pool” is basically all current alpha skills plus a few more, and they all combined should have a sum of that 20.5 million limit. This means any and all already learned alpha skills should be available if you downgrade from omega.
I’m still concerned about letting alpha players use pirate ships. It wasn’t possible to separate them, or it’s an actually important option to have as an alpha?
There is no deciding. Read the dev blog. At the end it list all the Alpha skills. If you are not an omega, those are the skills that you have access to and can train.
So for example, I have advance weaponry to 5. If I unsub and am an alpha, though I still have the skill to 5 the game treata it as capped at level 3. If I go omega again, it will be treated as 5 again.
Yeah I get it now. Not what people want I fear. I think it would have been better if there had been a wide range of skills and then limited total SP. So that people that wanted to tightly focus could do and train higher levels of the allowed skills at the cost of not being as flexible.
