If it does start, will we receive updates on the steam? Or can you choose to test? Or the Beta test team?

A way to scale the size of title fonts in-game would be nice. That way, in crowded stellar neighborhoods, one could fit more titles in between without cluttering the map, OR exaggerate the title size of relevant locations like star clusters or nebula.

Also, good luck with patching 0991!

I really thought this was fake for a second, I’m glad that SE is always having development, despite the usual delay. Which makes me wonder, would you consider having steam have opting into beta releases and send statistics and non-user generated bug reports?

 is there a way to reduce the size of fonts or change their color, I want to see constellation outlines and names but dont want them to stand out so much and ruin the sky (and I dont want to see them during the day- only when the stars are visible.)

Vlad I really like 1660, but I am itching to try out the new beta!  I dont know how to access the beta, the instructions to right click on Space Engine in the Steam client did not work for me, no beta tab popped up.  Is there a way to make the program automatically update to the beta branch when starting it up?
