Hi, Space Engineer, long-time user of space engine here.
These very last years, it seems that there is a regain of interest in space for the general public, maybe thanks to events like curiosity, rosetta, tesla…
Since you're a one-man company (from what I know) with very few people working on Space Engine, and the fact that Space Engine is a successful software that impresses many people, don't you fear an upcoming concurrence from a larger development team?
Space Engine progress has always, since I know it at least, been slow regarding my own expectation and desires, which is logical as one person can't do as much work as 10 or 20.
Because I am in love with Space Engine immensity, realism, and what I'd call induced poetry, I sometimes have hoped for the come of a direct Space Engine contender. Both because of the "proof of concept" that is Space Engine (a complex, beautiful and mature simulator by one human being) make me dream of what a similar project would look like if it was developed by a bigger and talented team, and because I guess it would, in a way or another, stimulate the development of SE.
What are your thoughts about this?
