That's certainly the case in this clip from streamer ButterIsPro (great name) who is doing what any survival player likes to do: Crafting the heck out of a nice house in the middle of nowhere, which will then be used as a forward base for exciting forays. Then their friend joins the game. In Icarus, new players spawn via means of a capsule from 'space' (the game has a space station hub, and then the main action is on the planet of Icarus). Perhaps you can guess what happens next.

This has to be one of the most unluckiest and perfect moments I have ever experience in gaming. I cannot believe this happened. @SurviveIcarus @Valhooli 5, 2021

Oh well, it was a nice house before it got spawn killed, talk about a home invasion, this is the epitome of drop-in co-op, and so on. On another note though, who needs a wooden hut when you've got some super high-tech drop pod?

Doubtless this feature will be somehow ameliorated, in order that friends aren't constantly pissing each other off by collapsing each others' buildings when joining. Since launch Rocketwerkz has been extremely active in pushing out small hotfixes and patching glitches, while also promising additional content this weekend because, of course, people have somehow managed to complete all 35 missions the game launched with. "We will release new missions for this weekend for players who have already worked their way through Icarus," Hall wrote. "You’ve given us vital feedback about the existing missions and we’ll apply this to the new mission challenges when you return."
