tl;dr: The devs should consider the teen/below 16 nerds and the opportunities of using this game as a teaching tool. First of all, let me state that SOA is a game with a HUGE amount of potential. If made well, it will satisfy many players' engineering fantasies much more than Minecraft tech mods/ mod packs like Tekkit ever will. However, if SOA becomes rated 16+, it will discourage many younger nerds/geeks from playing this game, which would be a shame, because this game has the potential to spark much more interest in STEM subjects than Minecraft does. I think that the devs should restrict SOA's content to at least T(13+) rated levels. It is important to discuss this now when the game is still in the equivalent of Minecraft's classic/indev stage, rather when it is receiving a lot of new content. Discuss your opinions below. P.S. Personally, I am 13 years old and a nerd (I play D&D weekly and have landed probes on other planets in Kerbal Space Program), and my parents would not take to kindly to me asking them to let me play an M rated game.
