No. You will not need the current version of Universe Sandbox on Steam to participate.

Although you will need a Steam account (but those are free, so no need to sign up until the full beta details are announced).

Quick question: In Universe sandbox v.3 or so, will there be planets and stars that has there rotation period so fast that they "pancake" or flatten at the equator. Thanks.

That would be awesome.
I think Dan said he's thinking about adding oblateness to planets in Version 3.

Do you know if this will be hinted on being released early this year, or late this year?
I'm very eager on knowing when this game may be released, it's so fascinating and cool.

I hope that there will be trailer for the Universe Sandbox 3 beta so that we all know that the BETA is going to be released soon. P.S. Love the past screenshots hope there's more soon. PEACE!

Sorry I'm not sure which thread this question would best be suited for, but as far as use of hardware goes, how much hardware can the newer engine take advantage of? SLI? crossfire? cuda? opencl? # of cpu cores? etc.

So when will the beta be available?
In taking a page out of Valveís book, the beta will be released when itís ready (and itís not ready yet). Iím going to stop announcing release dates that Iím not 100% certain we canít hit.

I was wondering if I will have to buy the game again if I want Universe Sandbox 3. Do I have to download it all over again? Do I have to buy it again? What will happen if I bought the game but don't get it?

By the way, I have a suggestion(s) for V3:

You could make it so the planets crack into pieces when an asteroid hits it or something.
Comets?
That other Earth like planet?
Nebulas?
Better black holes?
Super/Hypernovae?
Null Energy Fields? javascript:void(0);

Universe Sandbox 3 will require a new purchase and new download.
If you buy it and don't get it you should contact us so we can correct that problem.

Read this post to learn why:

Yes.

Maybe.
Yes.
Somewhat.
How would a null energy field work in Universe Sandbox?

I think the null energy field was smittenkitten joking around.
