At release they aren't wiping the progress from the gamma test.
This is slightly annoying because they said they might a while back and so I didn't take it seriously. I am 100's of light years away from my free eagle at the ass end of the galaxy in a hauler.
Now I realise, I am stuck here unless I wipe ( loosing a ton of money ) or digging in and making a name for my self here.
I wish Frontier had communicated clearer there intentions with the gamma and save games.
