To be fixed. Thanks. You still can change them with the old UI.

Although you have to select them for the old UI to work on bodies. Just hovering over them won't work anymore.

Making galaxies merge is on my list to do but it will probably be after v2.0.

What are members and even?

When you click on something it doesn't go to it, it just opens the menu.

Yeah. This is a big change. Click once to select (something that didn't really exist in version 1) and click again to focus the camera on it.

The performance generally seems to have worsened.
But I don't know if that's just the case because it's a beta.

Also selecting a celestial objects makes every time the info box showing up.
It's nice for editing objects or getting info about them while they are performing movement,
but it gets rather annoying when you just want to rotate your camera around a certain object.
Maybe include a minimize function for it or make it only appear when right clicking on an object.

It runs slow on my computer, but that's just my computer.
I actually think the beta is perfect.

It does run slower. The UI is not optimized at all yet.

And it's not perfect, but that's kind of you to say. :)

Thanks for catching that. Those buttons are going to be ripped out and the menu system is going to get a major overhaul before we ship v2.

Thanks!

Yeah... Hmm... I'll think about this. You're right. It can be annoying.

Whenever I launch a group of photons when the game is paused, most of the background turns white and it stays white even if I change my focus on a different celestial object.

All the objects are still invisible using light system. By the way temperature doesn't work because if you change it, it immediately goes to 100,000 or something. (You can go down by doing (numbers here) than lower case 'k'.)

Yes, I think the beta multiplies the number with thousand or something and adds the M for mega/million. To change the temperature without getting the bug we can press down the left mouse button and drag it up or down.

Yes there was an issue with changing the temperature. Was unable to change it below some number because it would always reset to a few million K.

when you click to add a object for the first time it adds the sun maybe it would be better if it lets you put what you want

placing objects always makes it orbit the parent maybe after clicking add a option if you want it to default orbit or place it where you want

Just wanted to make sure this got resolved. I think this was because of a bad release on my part.

Umm, Dan Dixon, you keep replying to old messages. I just said that in the past. But now it works.
