On October 24 you said that the work was mostly completed ... 2 months later the steam version was going to be sent.Month and a half later nothing is known ... only that there are people who make videos on YouTube of the 0.9.9 impressive to give envy and the only answer I get is "I am a beta tester"
Could you be a little clearer?
Would not it be useful to launch the game as early access in steam and for people to buy it while it is updated periodically and so the product is released little by little as it improves and improves?
If you think that Space Engine is taking a lot of time to release... just think of poor Star Citizen Fans who have paid hundreds (if not thousands) of $ and what do they have to play with...
Yes it is taking a lot of time but if you had seen any of HarbingerDawn's Live-streams you would might have wanted to reconsider. In his very latest live-stream the program was crashing every now and then. It must have crashed at least 3 times if I recall correctly. This must be improved before the program goes live on steam. I suspect that Vladimir is doing just that right now. No more additions and new features - just bug fixes. This can take a considerable amount of time. I wouldn't be surprised if the release comes around Q4 2019.
So next time you think Space Engine is taking too much time to get released just think of Star Citizen .

I don't think you realise but the reason the rule for not asking about release date exists is simply because it is quite rude to do so. We don't mind if people are just asking out of curiosity and haven't seen the rules, but those who know the rules and make comments and insinuations like this come across as very rude. Vladimir isn't involved in any conspiracies. He's estimating, and is very busy and does his best on all, and you really should just be grateful for that, not annoyed at him in any way. Also, decisions made about the game are not up for question and debate, and this is absolutely fine, most game companies do that. You are welcome to make suggestions but please do so politely and do not get angry if they are not taken on board.

SpaceSpade wrote:Hi, guys! Well... I have some news: SE is planned to be released before spring 2019. Don't say I'm a liar or something. I found it out on two months old reddit page, where HarbingerDawn was answering frequently asked questions. One person asked about spring 2019 and HarbingerDawn said that it is planned to be released before this time. In my opinion it will be out on Steam by mid/late February.
Keep it in mind!

And... I would like to introduce the new classes of planets - "hydrogenic aquaria" and "hydrogenic terra". These are MASSIVE and pretty large in size terras and aquarias which have hydrogenic atmospheres on them. They may even become cores of gas giants soon. And all in all I still want low temperature brown dwarfs to become habitable.
