Ah, yes. Griefers.

There's a reason why I tend to run without radios or beacons, and tend to keep a low profile far from the planets in multiplayer.

Safe zones are relatively small, and they are station based. So you can't build them around ships... or even very large stations.

Safe zones are also absurdly expensive to run, both in terms of power and in terms of purchasing zone chips to run the generator.

Hmmm... Would there be interest in running a private SE server?

Hm, the idea of hosting a server again is both tempting and depressing.
I guess i'll pass on it this time.

The ideal size depends on what you seek to do with the server. If it's only a few people, a full-blown PvP setup isn't very ideal... but a joint survival/exploration is perfect, especially if you build a base ship.

Generally speaking, if you're in a gravity well, they'll ignore you, simply because they can't handle the gravity.

They are drones of commitment and will, they have followed me over a distance of 40km back to my base, in the surface of the moon.
Also, most of the times when I reach asteroid fields between Earth and Moon I have around 10 min before I see a pair of them on their way to annoy me.

Hmmm. Generally you have to get within a certain distance of their home base to trigger a deployment. I think it's 15km or so. You should be able to see the base marker on your HUD. Just steer clear of those areas until you can craft some sort of stand-off weapon to cripple the outpost's ability to launch drones and to defend itself against attack. Then you can raid it and steal all the treasure within.
