Alpha 16 | Steam Early Access Release | August 24, 2015
« on: August 24, 2015, 08:41:14 PM »
We're out on Steam Early Access!
http://store.steampowered.com/app/230290/

If you already own Universe Sandbox ˛, just run Steam to update to the latest version.

Or you can buy Universe Sandbox ˛ here:
http://universesandbox.com/buy/

What's new?
In Alpha 16 we’ve re-enabled and improved saving and loading and completely rewrote the rendering backend to implement logarithmic z-buffering, which addresses graphical issues and paves the way for some big visual changes. We also made further improvements to the interface and fixed a bunch of bugs and stability issues.

Complete List of Updates

Let us know what you think! And please report any problems either with the in game feedback tool or by starting a new thread...

Great work Giant Army! A question though, is the steam version going to have badges, trading cards, achievements, etc...? like the Universe sandbox 1?

Great. You guys really managed to fix lots of bugs in a short period before this release.

When I try to add rings it only gives me one option for ring types and that's the cylinder option. Also, once a song in the soundtrack ends, the music never comes back.

Love it. Thank you!

Edit: "Physics breakout time now automatically adjusts if user drags and holds timestep slider" THIS! Now my worries are gone  ;D
