Hello, and welcome back Commander!
Myself I'm on the European server but have been on a sabatical for the last six to seven months now also, and still haven't gotten into Odyssey even though I joined for early access...
I'm residing in Colonia since a few years now, and I hope to be back in game soon... However instead of furiously grinding like before I'm going to keep a more balanced approach in a mix with my XPlane, ATS and ETS setups.
I must say that there's a small group of people that keep in touch in game but I never saw any big masses also even though the membership here is in the thousands... guess it's a big galaxy out there
However, maybe one day we might meet in the Black!
