    Dear Galactic Survivalists!

    Vacation time is over. :cool: Working on a few things for the upcoming interversion patches (bugfixes and such .. but not only ;). Planning for the next major update has started as well.

    Nice. But I am still waiting for the ability to approach the stars and gas giants.

    The only feature I would like for that is to die due to the intense heat emitted from the space object....The only thing I could see as a play field would be the gas giant's upper atmosphere. Any lower and your ship and your pilot should be ripped apart due to the winds.

    Sounds good.
    In fact, that would be a cool unique feature. Ability to build something like Cloud City from Star Wars and gas production station. It would be beautiful.

    I'd love to be able to rename planets, and a favorites list for destinations. Oh, and a way to "auto-jump" through known routes to a destination, or even just being able to queue jumps to make traveling less of a hassle.

    Sorry I did not get it. Is this a cosmetic addition?

    All I see is civilian gas farmers both as POIs and CV patrol ships roaming the playfield. Sounds like a hard playfield type. If you fall of the ship all your stuff is basically gone lol.

    YES for auto-jump functionality. Force use out of warp once we run out pentaxid.

    @Taelyn I think it's a step in the right direction that you guys are posting things on Steam even if small teasers and dev updates like the one today. It keeps people interested. Keep'em coming. :)
