Unfortunately, the US1 .sim files don't automatically convert into US2 .sim files. Sorry :/

That said, are they not compatible at all?

The reason why US2 files open in US1 is probably because Windows still considers US* files US1 files.

But I'm the village idiot, so have a grain of salt with this.

Nope. US2 runs in Unity, while US1 probably runs in C++ or something.

"Universe Sandbox is written in a manage .NET language, Visual Basic .NET. It uses the Truevision3D graphics engine and the nUI Interface library (buttons, list controls, etc...)."

The latest update in Universe Sandbox 2 - Update 20.1.3 has lots of bugs. Please help me find those bugs and report them in the simulator's feedback.

You do know that there's a Universe Sandbox2 update, which occurred on September 15. It can be found on the link at the top or by opening your Steam Library under the "Universe Sandbox2" updates tab.

It's Cassini's Final Goodbye. I've enjoyed Cassini for 12 years, from the Titan landing to the Enceladus Geyser discovery to the discovery of an Hexagonal storm in the planet's North Pole. It was a bittersweet moment. Cassini: 2004-September 15, 2017. What a great mission it was. I tracked Cassini even before it's approach to Saturn, while in Elementary school, granted I didn't know about science all too much. I was too busy enjoying childish games.

Times change. I've wanted Universe Sandbox2 for over a year before I got my current powerhouse iMac. While Universe Sandbox2 is improving, it'll take years before Universe Sandbox2 is out of Alpha and into Beta. The way I see it, at this rate, it'll take until the early 2020s to get this program released as a stable version

I have seen Cassini's final mission. It was a great, long mission.

I hope that Universe Sandbox 2 will soon be out of Alpha and move into Beta before being finally finished and released to the public as a complete version.

Goodness me. How many more months will it take for Update 21 to be released. I just find it so strange for Universe Sandbox 2 to hold itself to a long halt like this. I expected a few updates to be released every passing month.

Yes. It will be a huge update. The developers have already said that Update 21 will be a huge update. One good thing that will happen in Update 21 is the planet grid feature and better interaction with temperature variation instead of the average temperature of planets. Temperature variation will be a good feature for when using laser beams to melt parts of planets where the laser is firing.

Temperature variation will be a good feature for when using laser beams to melt parts of planets where the laser is firing.

Without the Evolution of the life of the star, renewal, for me personally - is meaningless.
What is the use of looking at the temperature chart if the stars do not change their characteristics over the years?
 Well, the user pushed the trajectory, shot from the laser into the planet, but what's the use?
 No, as a bonus entertainment - it's interesting. But why in the simulator of the universe there is no main thing - changes in the characteristics of the stars themselves over time?
Why, when changing for example the density of matter or radius or changing the radius of the star at the same mass (for example, squeeze into a white dwarf), nothing changes? Why are all these characteristics almost unrelated?
Why does not the user have the ability to observe these events?
 Why do stars not lose their mass with age or do not gain?
Yes, when creating planetary systems, the design mode is good, but this program is a simulator, which means that after construction, the user should be able to really see what will happen.
I bought this program in the hope that I can see and simulate, at least in an approximate form, what is described here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stellar_evolution.

Shoot from the laser into the planet and the like things can be in the "Star Wars" and "Solar 2", as well as other arcade games. This is no longer impressive. This is more fun additional function, but not a very important element in the simulator of the universe.

For the time being, the work, if I may so express it, in the "Universe Sandbox ²" reminds me of the process when you can not stick a domino with your finger and see how the knuckles will fall beautifully in the established scheme.   ;)

It's so dreary to watch the stars, which are 900 billion years old and they are as immortal as the user. :D The stars do not expand and do not narrow, systems do not collapse, they do not go from orbit to orbit ... everything is static. In fact, I really want to start the timer and see that the planetary system created by myself will finally fail and possibly give rise to a new system. The eternal cycle of the universe: Life - Death - Life  ;D

Tools for virtual reality - great, but what about the basics?
I very, very much hope that this moment will be realized. In the meantime, it turns out that the "Universe Sandbox" is an expanded and sophisticated "Pocket Universe - 3D Gravity Sandbox for mobile devices" .. and this is somewhat frustrating and frustrating.
In fact, I really appreciate the work of developers. A truly amazing project, but without such a bright and basic astronomical process in the universe, everything boils down to "space billiards on a PC" ... ???

I think that it would be a great idea to add different types of aeroplanes, spaceships that you can control, fly and land of planets like you do in Space Engine.

Simulation abilities for aircrafts are needed in Universe Sandbox 2.

... no just no that's not the point of US2 if you want that go play Space Engine.

For such purposes, there is "Orbiter".
In the beginning, developers must create the basic astronomical phenomena.

Universe Sandbox 2 must do more and have more features, so I believe that aircrafts could be added at some point in the future.

That is way too much for a game in Alpha Cesare, it's not even in Beta yet, yet alone Release. Just have patience. I think they are only making good decisions with taking it slow, if they'd rushed this this would've been many many times worse than it is now

I know that rushing is not a good think. I am happy the developers are taking their time to think and fix bugs.

Those features are never too much because one day developers will add the ideas of features that people request, so this feedback is a good thing for them to know what we all want.

We are all a community on this forum.

Cesare, I get what your saying, however may I suggest that if you really want the developers to know what we as a community want, why not start some polls asking if users want a certain feature or not, instead. Some features most of us probably don't agree on, while I am sure there are others we can all want to see.

Yes US2 Discussion would seem the appropriate board for such things. You should do it, there's a real lack of polls here, nice to have some thing new.

There is a buttom at the left of "Make Topic" called "Make Poll". Click on it. And then customize it.
