This build is only available to the closed group of alpha testers. If you're an alpha tester, run Steam to update to the latest version.

What's new?
Alpha 5 features comets, graphing tools, improved stellar flares, lighting falloff, volumetric atmospheres, and user interface improvements, as well as many other additions, tweaks, and bug fixes.

Please let us know if you run into any problems.  Our preferred method for reporting a bug is the in-game feedback system. Click on the star icon in the top-right corner of the screen.  And remember, the ideal bug report is a step-by-step procedure for reproducing the error.

Thanks!

Alpha 5 has no collision fixes or changes. We expect to begin work on a complete revisit of collisions next week.

Is the dev team planning on upgrading to Unity 5? Perhaps it would allow for more capabilities.
