I revived myself again now, and my "other self" is now just standing there. So seems to be the same thing. The silver lining is that the zombie that is my previous self, is far away from my base so I don't have to look at its stupid face :P I am a little bitter for losing all the hard drives it took two days to collect, can you tell?
Just to be clear, I realize this is early access. And by that measure, it's amazing! A really great game, that I've already spent so many hours playing, and will continue playing after full release. Satisfactory in early access is more stable that some released games. All cred to the developers!!
