Ok, so, I have a question. Well we have to purchase the new version if we already have UBox2? Not that it would be a bad thing, just need to know if I have to set some money aside.

Yes you do. In fact, there's a thread Dan made about that.

Will there be random cloud formations for gas giants and planets with atmospheres? Will there be a natural disaster system for with solid surfaces like volcanoes and supervolcanoes, earthquakes, thunderstorms, blizzards, hurricanes, etc  ???  :) :D ;D.

  Dan has already stated that he's working on procedural planet detail, and I remember him saying that he is working on procedural cloud formation for planets like Earth (I could be wrong, so don't take my word.) But I'm not sure if he is working on natural disasters. He might add effects, like thunder and whatnot, but I don't think he is going to add simulated effects like volcanoes and earthquakes. Awesome ideas, but this is Universe Sandbox, not Climate Sandbox.

It would be cool though to see moons that experience tidal stretching like Io for example. They don't necessarily have to have erupting volcanoes, just look volcanically superactive.

For the clouds though, I wouldn't mind if there were procedural cyclones, but as tuto said, we aren't simulating weather. I don't even expect that we will be able to land and see the detail as in Space Engine.

Also, Dan, speaking of cyclones, tidally locked planets should have a hyper cane on their sunward side.

But then again, if Dan did add simulated weather, that would be awesome.

Thunderstorms, cyclones, lighting seen from space will and volcanic like effects also seen from space at night will be cool.

We Would Probably Not Have Any Weather In UBOX 3.

Hey Dan, its been some time, but I've been watching.

First thing: You never cease to amaze me, same as with UBOX2 back then. Really great job.

Second: When planets collide, Do you have a feature for that too?

Third: Is the simulated gravity improved?

Last: I see you made my wish come true, 4 years ago I was so looking forward to realistic impacts, and now its happening.

Again, you are a great man, Dan Dixon.

Oh yeah, I'm definetly sure that they have a feature for colliding planets, they just don't want to show it yet. Either because they're still fine tuning it or they want to surprise us or something.

For simulated gravity improved, I'd assume so.

Wow Dan. This is looking great. I've had Universe Sandbox for a long time. This update is going to be amazing. I can't wait for the release.

Keep up the great work!

Looks amazing I just bought it on steam yesterday, can't wait for the update. Although I am a little bummed about having to pay for the update, but no worries it's totally worth it

Longer it takes=More epic Ubox 3 will be.

it's called delay gratification i think.

I know and appreciate this, but going into the game and pressing print screen a few times doesn't exactly distract from development time.

I think they'd rather take quality shots than a buch of random screenshots, plus they're probably busy doing whatever needs to be done before they send out the beta.

Considering how little we have anything would be a quality shot imo. But I hope you're right, the ubox 3 beta is easily one of the things I have most been excited for in a long time.

I have a question.
Will you be able to add effects on planets? (Like city lights, some animation like active volcanoes and whatnot, etc.)

What are those bright dots near the bottom-left region on the planet?

They are city lights and street lights, you can't see car headlights.
