Governs how quickly one can respawn at a respawn point after death. The lowest a timer may go is 1 second. The greatest a timer may go is 1 minute. Respawning at the Sanctuary always has a spawn timer of zero.
The timer increases with each death, but can be reduced by staying alive longer, with the Bio Laboratory or Speed Module benefit, or with an Empire Incentive bonus due to low population. Selecting to spawn at an AMS always has a shorter respawn timer than the longest option.
