first. lolollo

jk. I'm excited to see what's changed.

edit: yay, no new feautures! In my opinion it is better to fix all the bugs we have right now and then we add more stuff.

edit2: The new logo is cool as tits.

I don't consider myself a good bug-finder, but I've been playing this new version for just a few minutes and I've found many bugs. Oddly, there are bugs now that didn't exist in the previous version. That upsets me a little. Actually, that upsets me a lot

Well, that was unexpected :3

I looked at my games on steam and saw an update. 
Thanks for the update!


Edit*  After a few minutes in, I started breaking the game in search of glitches.  I found quite a few by abusing the physic and the engine.

I feel like I am spamming you with the Feedback option.....

It's awesome I can now change the orbital parameters by entering the values in the properties panel, and the affected body does not get flung away nor crashes on the parent body ;D ;D

neffyy

YAY! AWESOME!
unfortunately, Random Gas planets randomization isn't fixed for me. Now they only spawn dark blue and pale blue gas planets, instead of the old problem, dark blue and caramel brown planets only. They also still have those several month long rotation periods as well.
And Rocky planets are also still abundant in water.

Also, no offense, but the font is terrible and unfitting. And it's way too tiny for my eyes (I have a really big screen, not sure if anyone else has this problem.)

I think I can help you.
1.Delete everything for US2 on your computer.
2.Go to:
Steam>Library>Games
3. Click US2 "Download"
4. Wait for download completion
5. If this doesn't work, you need a new Steam Key.

There are several errors we are working on fixing with OpenCL on different configurations. If you're still having issues, we'll need your logs so we can try and fix the problem.

galaxies aren't the focus right now. We all know there are things missing stuff about galaxies, but that will be fixed in the future
