Alpha 7 now available - June 20, 2014
« on: June 20, 2014, 06:17:49 PM »
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 7 is our biggest update yet.  It features a completely overhauled collision system, improved climate modeling, a brand new material and composition system, and a material dispenser which allows for new methods of manipulation.

Complete List of Updates

Let us know what you think!

Hm, didn't seem to start downloading until a couple min ago. Anyway, awesomeness. :D

(also, you forgot to sticky the topic)

SPH collapsing cloud has nothing in it :(  When I unpause though, it lags like crazy.

That scenario doesn't run on some video cards (What video card are you running smjjames?) and is very experimental....
When SPH is up and running (properly) it will be announced loud and clear.

My son is a big fan of UNIVERSAL SANDBOX and would love to be a tester for UNIVERSAL SANDBOX 2.
What's the process on becoming a tester?

The alpha test sign-up is closed now, sorry.

Source:
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.

There's no set release date yet, so we don't know yet, we can only guess.

This, is, amazing. Best collisions I have seen out of a game. Keep up the amazing work Giant Army!
On the other hand, it seems as if the alpha is running slower on this computer. (It's a temporary computer for my broken one, same model and build)

I think that this alpha feels a lot more heavy on my computer, which is maybe why it's running a bit slower overall.

I think most of the bugs have already been reported, like the gravity issue. I will see if there are more.

I have a question, will you wonderful people from Giant Army add new exoplanets as they get announced? like Kepler 186F ? the MOST earth-like planet thus far?
