Welcome to the Alpha Board
« on: November 27, 2013, 04:39:34 PM »
This is where the alpha testers will be sharing their ideas and comments about the new version. We've decided to make this board public and be open about our development process.

Welcome!

Minimum system requirements for running Universe Sandbox 2 Alpha:

Graphics:
- DirectX9.0c
- 512MB Video Memory
- Shader Model 3.0

System:
- 1.6GHz dual core
- 1GB RAM
- 1GB free disk space

---

The Alpha test sign up is closed and we're not accepting any more right now. We'll begin taking pre-orders in a few months that will give you early access to the latest version of the new version of Universe Sandbox.

Wouldn't it be Ubox3 alpha? Not that it matters THAT much.

Yes and no.  You're not wrong.

This is just a guess but, when Dan posted his schedule to release Ubox3(2) he said that we were about a month away from the alpha release. he posted that November 6. So I'm guessing early December. But if he wants to send them out earlier, I would be fine with that ;)

Hello everyone! My name is Josh and I registered on the forums a few minutes ago.
I'm one of the alpha testers, and I recently installed it on Steam; so far so good. I'm going to be posting on here on behalf of my experience, as well as reporting any bugs. I'm very excited to be a part of this.  :)

Will all the bugs explained in the feedback sections be ironed out when the beta version becomes available, say January 2014?

i think it's impossible to fix all these bugs in a month; there's the beta version to continue fixing them

I have a question Dan, depending on how easy it is could you change the minimum mass for a brown dwarf to fuse hydrogen and become a star from 93.0 Jupiter Masses to 83.8 Jupiter Masses?
M-Class stars go all the way from M0 at the highest and M9 at the lowest. 83.8 Jupiter masses is supposed to be the point where hydrogen fusion is hot enough in the core, and I have baskets upon baskets of ideas to put into action that involve stars below 93.0 Jupiter Masses.
Thanks for listening, I hope I didn't come off as demanding, I'm just really hoping it makes it into the final release.

The way we were handling stars in the original has been completely overhauled in the sequel... so you should be able to create the lower mass stars you're envisioning.
