GCP protection, also known as beginner protection, newbie protection or noob protection, protects new players from attacks by older players or NPCs. This ensures a safe and secure setup at the beginning of the game.

Players in GCP protection cannot give ships to other players. Likewise, they cannot attack other players or NPCs.

The GCP protection can be deactivated manually. This can be done via the account settings, see image above. Leaving the protection cannot be undone. For security, leaving the protection must be confirmed in an extra pop-up window, see image below.

The GCP protection also expires either after thirty days after the account registration or after the completion of the research "Space Stations" (German: Raumstationen).
