I've spent a few hours in 0990. I'm really impressed! I had a bad framerate with the default graphics settings but after some tweaking it's running smoothly. SE looks and runs great.
I have a suggestion for adding extra functionality for VR controllers. There aren't enough buttons on the Oculus Touch controllers (and for all VR controllers I imagine) to do everything I want to do. There's not enough room for the wiki, system chart, universe map, etc. I think there should be a wheel listing all the menus that pops up when you press the joystick on the Touch controller, for example. Universe Sandbox 2 does something similar to this. You can choose a function by tilting the joystick toward an option and pressing it again. Perhaps it could be customizable.
Also, I couldn't figure how to "zoom with VR controller." I tried many different motions while pressing the assigned button but the scale hovers around the same value. Anyone figured it out?
I like cute pokemon and space games.
