I don't think we need anymore Alpha Testers. We have pretty frequent bug reports already.

And your evidence for enough bug reports? Personally I think that we could do with more, the more the merrier  as they say right? Not all alpha users are submitting regular bug reports, myself included since my leaving cert is coming up.

Ah yes but by the way the game is looking it should be a massive hit on steam, when universe sandbox was first released on steam it was a massive hit aswell.

They need all the money they can get! It took hundreds of thousands of dollars to make this!

It's in a different thread... Trying to get a quote from a different thread on iPad would be madness... Or I'm just lazy :P

i'm new to this universe sandbox thing. when this new version comes out, do we have to pay for the new version? or is it an update, where you just buy the game and every time there's something new like this, it'll update?

i was planning on buying what there is now, but i hear there's a new version coming.

Hi and welcome. :)

The next version which is currently an alpha will not be free if you buy the current version.

Hey guys, I'm Mike, and I recently got accepted to be an alpha tester. I haven't gotten the code on steam yet, but I'll be expecting it in the next two weeks. I'll be posting here about any bugs, or anything curious that I find in the alpha.

Why
do you think playing for 100 hours will allow you to get a free copy of the sequel? In fact, how does this even remotely make sense?

Why

Do you think you are the best player? There are people out there who have +1,000 hours in Universe Sandbox.

Why

Would you think you would earn Dan's favor by saying you play so much? Do you think it gives him money or something?

How

Do you think your chances of getting the game will be improved if you say you'll play it five hours a day? Again, do you think that playing the game supports him? It doesn't!

Why would you ask this when

There are so many threads out there about the people with early access to the sequel, etc. There's even a message at the top of the thread that says "Alpha Signups are closed and we (Giant Army) will not be accepting any more testers."!!!

Do you even know

What it means to be an Alpha Tester? It means checking the game for bugs and actively reporting them with the feedback button, not playing the game for hours on end!

And the cherry on the sundae is that narcissism will get you nowhere.

My God, you people! In the end, I might leave the forum altogether because of you guys!

(P.S. A sincere apology to Dan, I'm so sorry about this post. I've been trying my hardest for you to keep my temper around the forums but this one really set me off. I hope I never have to do this again. Again, I'm really sorry about this incident.)

I am alpha tasker.I don't understand you said needn't anymore tasker,why?
WHY IS 100 ALPHA TESTERS NOT ENOUGH FOR YOU!? Lol, but on a more serious note, 100 alpha testers. Surely there will be a diverse amount of operating systems and video cards, etc. for the Alpha to be tested under any circumstances. Plus, the game is months from release, another Alpha Signup is pretty pointless, don't you think?

AAAAAAhhhhhhh !! !! !! hilarious :D
I have hundreds of hours of game on many video games and I do not ask the developer a copy of their upcoming games ^^ You are one of the best players? There are no ranking in Universe Sandbox so you could not be one of the best players.

It will stay in your Steam Library and you can download it from the cloud at any time without having to enter the code.

Woah - that's the real deal! :D

Can't wait for the Alpha nor the Beta x3

And yeah, I agree with you on this one - I don't think seven billion free copies of the game, when only a billionth of them would actually report bugs, would be a great idea, don't you think? That would be chaos for Dan and Giant Army.

Good point.

Actually, I think the real deal is knowing that you are practically a member of Giant Army now.

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.
how do I apply for alpha test?

Hello, glad to be part of the alpha testing. Are the requirements still the same as the original post? I can't get it to launch in Windows XP.
