I'm new to Ubox and the Ubox forums. With that being said, do I have at least have an OK chance of getting in the beta?  :-\ I really want to participate. Also, paying again will not be a problem for me.

Yes. Version 3 will have optional dark matter particle halos around galaxies.

Say a comet impacts in an ocean; will tsunamis be simulated?

Buying a new version for a game you already own is just stupid. javascript:void(0);
A new version should be an update, not a new game.

If you watched the Unity presentation of Ubox 3, you would know that the team started from scratch on the project. They're also using a different engine for the game, so I wouldn't think it would be feasible to be able to update Ubox 2 with a new game engine.

just a thought, even though you'll probably not implement it

maybe like as time passes have like the [t-word i forgot] plates like shift and have the continents reshape. that'd be cool

This kind of killed a part of me. I was looking forward to US3 but now that it costs money I'm sure I won't get it. I'm 15 because of that I can't work or make money and I rely on my father to buy me these things. Unfortunately he thinks everything is a video game and almost never buys me anything on the computer he believes US is a game but I find it rather educational. But hey, I'm sure I can stick with US2.

That sucks... maybe you can try to convince him. Heck, show him the Unity presentation of Ubox 3! That should make him think again about possibly buying Ubox 3 for you. Hope I helped.

Also, Dan mentioned he could help you if you couldn't afford it a few times before, so maybe contact him about that

I just bought US2 through steam yesterday, and I find it very fun. I felt with this the same way when I first play mass effect (it was mass effect 2) the first moment I could travel to planetary systems across the milky way.

At first, I was a bit disappointed about not receiving US3 for free, but checking the video presentation with unity engine, I agree, US3 seems totally better than US2, and I am pretty sure I will pay for US3. (Besides, development is not free and after thinking and seeing the reason, I totally agree)

I have a question concerning future updates, and the implementation of new astronomic objects (for example, the new moons of Pluto, Kerberos, Styx)
Have you any plan to update discovered objects or renamed objects after US3 release? (renamed, I mean when an object is named like 2009TX300 and then it has a mythological/other name assigned)

Also, there is the Gaia mission to be launched this year that will begin to map nearby stars in 3D (its aim is 1 per cent of milky way stars (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaia_%28spacecraft%29))

Just got Ubox 2 gifted on Steam and I think it's great! With stuff happening like: increasing masses of bodies takes into account Schwarzschild radius, temperature changes etc.
Though what I really sadly missed were gen. relativistic effects like grav. bending of light - and yo some part even maybe the speed of light limit to grav. effects, but didn't want to be too nitpicky, so it's awesome nonetheless!

@topic
Assuming among those ellusive 'awesome things' you guys are developing for Ubox 3 are some gen. effects, I'd definitely buy the new version, IF...I were able to purchase it. Problem: I don't have a credit card or paypal account (too paranoid). Considering how you're releasing a Mac version, do there happen to be plans of releasing it on the Apple App Store (there I could purchase it)? Or even maybe on Amazon?

Couldn't imagine playing around with anything better when writing my theses paper on black holes!  :D

Thx

Dan, quick question. After v3 is released, once I pay for it, what will happen to the game I currently have on my library? Will v3 appear as a separate game, or will it upgrade v2 and overwrite it?

Also, will you please remove the impossible achievements from v2?

Thanks! :)

sorry for my english.

/ 1 Can you give me your opinion if you think it is possible that the game will be available before September? Or a month later, but just your opinion

/ 2 The game will cost us more than 50 ? ( in my case) $. Just your opinion, not necessarily a close estimate?

/ 3 If the collision of the Earth with the moon. the Earth deviandra a lava planet because of the heat generated by the impact? (A dead planet ^ ^) ?

/ 4 The game that will be available on Steam?

good job giant army (Sublime)

Dan mentioned somewhere that it is not going to be above $70, so it will probably cost less than 50

I would buy it if it retailed a bit more than the current US2 price. If it was 70 bucks, heck no.

No worries... I'm sorry I don't know how to speak your native language. Thanks for learning English.

Not October either...

/ 2 The game will cost us more than 50 ? ( in my case) $. Just your opinion, not necessarily a close estimate?

The final released version will cost less than 50 .

/ 3 If the collision of the Earth with the moon. the Earth deviandra a lava planet because of the heat generated by the impact? (A dead planet ^ ^) ?

That's the plan... still working on making that as awesome as it should be.

/ 4 The game that will be available on Steam?

Yes. The new version will be avaliable on Steam.

good job giant army (Sublime)

Thanks so much.
