This game sounds fascinating, but I'm extremely dubious about the lack of a PvE server, especially given what I've heard about how messed up combat is at the moment. At least in EVE you could stick to Highsec if you weren't into getting ganked every five seconds. In this the best you can manage is sticking to your homestead, which isn't really feasible since eventually you'll run out of the limited resources and have to venture out into the wilderness to get pwned by random griefers you might or might not even be able to defend yourself against.

The crafting and building sounds great and right up my alley, but until they at least fix combat or offer a non-PK server I'll probably give it a miss.

Fwiw I've yet to be ganked in over six weeks of almost daily play. A lot of it depends where you set up I guess. My tribe went pretty far out (but so did a bunch of other folks that we ran into).

With travel being quite realistic, unless you're extremely unlucky and happen to set up shop next to a bunch of griefers, Xsyon's PvP is extremely easy to avoid.

Start in Sugarpine and find acalm populated valley in zone 816. I have yet to encounter any pvp. the lakeshores are rather densly populated, but if you go a bit in the hinterland, youll not only be safe(r) but find quite loveable people. all around the 816-area comunity is great.

im having a blast in xsyon atm.
