I've played StarMade for quite a few hours now and I have not run into any pirates or pirate bases. At first I thought pirates were just rare occurences, but after watching many videos of various people playing StarMade, I saw that everyone else was running into pirates fairly regularly. I made sure in the catalog that there were ships available for enemy use, and when I attacked shops enough, fleets would be dispached to shoot me down. However, I have still seen no pirates and I have done all I know how to do to try to fix this problem. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.
