Just this notice broke my heart:
Quote
As of this update, Universe Sandbox no longer supports DirectX 9 or 32-bit operating systems.
And I'm now stuck in 21.2 with no way of getting a 64-bit PC... I hate this update!

Update 22 - November 2018 shows colored stars. Does this update gives users the ability to customize colors of stars?

Look on the first image here: http://universesandbox.com/blog/2018/11/

Please explain to me more about this update.

Thank you.

The stars in that image are colored according to mass, which is not a new feature. Click View > Colors to change this setting.

Adding further color customization for objects is still on our to-do list.

Thanks for replying Jar.

I was confused of what the colors of stars were. Thanks for explaining. I am glad that you mentioned that color customization for gas giants and stars are on your to-do list.

Please make a roadmap for 2019, so that I know in advance what kind of update to be released during 2019.

Also, please fix the stars disappearance bug and the water freezing glitch which is so annoying.

Thank you.

Sorry for the delay. We had to make some minor changes for the TeacherGaming version. We just sent them this version, so hopefully it will be up soon. For this update, please keep in mind that Steam Workshop support is only available for the Steam version, as it relies on the Steam infrastructure. Wed love to use our own system in the future for sharing and exploring community sims on any platform, but we dont have a timeline for this yet. You'll still have access to the other changes, improvements, and fixes in this update, including better autosaves and improved UI for adjusting properties.
