Should be fixed now.

Yes it's a bug related to using latest java versions.
I've added a bundled jre for the windows version, so that should be fixed there.
Linux version has a problem with it's bundled jre, which is what I'm currently fixing.
In the final release client and server will be merged into one app.
Because the main intent of the game is to be a 4 plyer coop experience. With roguelike mechanics. Meaning - you die and restart.
So there's no need to host a dedicated server unless you are planning to run an MMO like mode on it.
Once the game is released and there are plans for an MMO mod, I will make it possible to run a dedicated server app without the client UI.
Currently NPCs are quite dumb, and can not be influenced directly.(This will be improved in the steam version of the game, check discord for details)
NPCs do go healing on their own, when their health drops low enough, if there is a powered med bay on the ship. Same thing for the O2.
It sure is being worked on.
But I'm not planning any more updates for the free version(that you can download here on itch).
At least not any time soon
Currently we are working hard on the steam version of the game.
All communications and dev log updates are posted on our discord.
In the currently available public version of the game it is not possible to add new races.
It might be possible to do in the steam version of the game which is currently in active development.
If you have more questions or want faster answers you might want to try our discord.
I'm sorry but I don't have the time to help everyone out when there are some issues not directly caused by the game itself.
When people are having trouble related to their Java version or to some other OS related settings, I can't be there all the time to help them fix it.
This is the reason why I always divert everyone to our Discord channel, since there are more people and chances to find an answer to your question are a lot higher there.
Suicide NPCs is a known issue, still working on a proper fix for this.
You can buy new NPC crew from slavers(the ones that are not hostile) or from some trading stations(they might have a guy there who has engineers for hire)
When you loose the Falcon ship - it's GG.
You can restart the play-through from the in-game menu - Press escape and select Reset server(you will need to reconnect)
