Tutorial How to start on the same Planet as your friends

    So I looked around quite a bit for this info, couldn't find anywhere that mentioned this, if there is I apologize.

    It's very simple, edit your servers starbound.config and change these values:

    "defaultWorldCoordinate" Put in the coordinates of whatever planet you want to start on, obviously somebody has to start and get those numbers and you can get them from the universe files or from your server's console log.

    Example:
    "defaultWorldCoordinate" : "alpha:12395630:42573579:-15829205:11",

    Now set the following to true and have your friends join your server with a new character and it should set this as their starting Planet as well.
    "useDefaultWorldCoordinate" : true,

    Note: This is not recommended for large player counts, but if you're like me and only playing with 1-2 people at once it's nice to be together to start off and establish a home base :)

    I don't really get how to alter the starting coordinates since it kinda gives 3 values. should I just alter first 2 strings?
