    So Alpha 10 is out....

    Aside from patching, what’s next on the grand plan?

    What can we look forward to next?

    Great work so far. Enjoing it immensely.

    You'll have to stick around to find out. We generally don't get teasers on such things until they are almost complete. They won't tell you anything until it's time to do so, always works like that.

    There is no public roadmap or anything like that. The reason being is people get more annoyed at "missed dates" so it's better to never mention whats coming until it's almost ready.

    I can understand that approach given the unkind reaction of a significant amount of gamers these days.

    People often don’t get that development has elements of experimentation and that design doesn’t always work in implementation despite best intentions.

    Still, as a mature and inquisitive customer I’m interested in what they are aiming for.

    Unkind? Really?

    Yes, it can be hard sometimes to know how practical a change may be until you really look it over. I'm sure a lot of neat ideas end up on the cutting room floor.

    This community, from what I have seen so far, is way less toxic than other boards for games I play.
    Is refreshing to see actually.

    They're not too bad, but there's a lot of "why isn't this game finished" posts that clutter things up.

    ... don't people read the game description page? It's clearly marked Early Access.... that's why it's not finished! :confused:o_O

    Next is 10.1 :)

    I don't know that we've even seen all the features planned for 10.

    10.3 is already on Experimental. We may see some extras in 10.5 but normally its mostly just fixes and slight changes to what was added in 10.0

    11 should bring a few new things, in the past the additions come with new iterations.

    Yeah, I was hopeful 10.1 and 10.2 would have brought more. I know there was some stuff they were hoping to squeeze in but I guess it didn't make it. If it's not in by now it's not going in this update.

    Wait for 10.5, whatever it was you were hoping for has a chance with that one as that is normally the update that brings the most after the .0's

    Can't agree more. You can ask a question and get an answer, not a bunch of hogwash ;-)

    (oh and I hope we get real universe to explore and walking on moving ships! There I said it)
