Drones spawn too quickly on new maps
I was playing SE with a friend on a locally hosted game. It was a brand new map. There was a space pirate base (SPRT.Ore_Refining_Facility[KEEP_OUT]) within 6km of the starting position. My friend joined in about two minutes after I started the game, and a drone was already in-route at that point. We were under fire within seconds after that.
This seems a bit excessive. We were lucky we were playing with a premade base - if we were starting from nothing we would be screwed.
I understand that turning off drones is an option, but it's a workaround, not a solution. It takes time to set up and arm defenses. I would suggest extending the amount of time it takes for the first drone to spawn to around 10 minutes or so.
