Work progress 0.9.9.0

I was having a bad day and this was just the right news to cheer me up. I'm so glad to see that the new release is coming soon, and will be on steam no less! I'm super excited and really glad that SpaceEngineer was able to do it. This will definitely bring Space Engine a lot more attention, raising it to the likes of Universe Sandbox or even higher than that. Hopefully it will make development much easier on SpaceEngineer, and time between updates easier on us as well :D

I don´t like at all the idea of forcing Steam to the users in order to have Space Engine, but if it helps the project and secures funds and future of this software, I guess we dont have another option :(

Best of luck, SE and its creator deserves it.

From my understanding Valve recently added a heavily upgraded version of Wine to Steam that manages to run a lot of Windows games, so SE might actually be able to run better than before under Linux if it uses Steam. Read this for more. In fact, maybe the author could look into getting SE in Valve's "guaranteed compatible" whitelist on Steam, since there are very few games in there right now it would be a huge publicity boost.
Born too early to explore space... but just in time for Space Engine!

Good idea, it's worth looking into.

Hello!

I see you are actively supporting VR (Vive, Rift). I can read between the lines that you consider proper VR support important, this is great!!

You mention you want to put it on Steam and "possibly also on Oculus". Question: For the Rift, do you also plan to support native Oculus API, or only via OpenVR? I am asking since I am seeing a lot experiences/titles where developers went the "easy route" and they often just OpenVR but not native Oculus API. And sometimes this means titles run less optimal than what they could on Rift if they used native Oculus code. Just wondering.

SE supports Oculus by its native library, and other VR devices by OpenVR. Oculus was first VR device presented, and I implemented its support almost immediately (in 2014 or so).

At this stage I would rather support via purchase on steam and then a review which can lead to others supporting the dev

They've said that it probably would be around $20 or less.

Wow, so many people on the forum are agonizing over how much SE is going to cost. Nobody foresaw that this was the way SE was going since the beginning? Most 'indie' type games like this one always start out free.
