What do you mean? That someone else created them before me? Or that you cannot just make quotes yourself? I am not an expert in space quotes, so i dont know if someone else made the quotes before me. Also I have no idea if it was a positive or negative post you made, it is kind of hard to explain things with two words, so what did you mean?

Sorry no disrespect, I thought you had read the first post of the thread, in which SpaceEngineer asked quotes about the universe from scientists, philosophers... nevermind.

Oh sorry :(

It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn't feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.

We need to make sure to include a few blurbs from that famous Pale Blue Dot speech, if nobody's mentioned that already.

Just to clarify, when you say replace the loading screen debug info with quotes, do you mean the handy lines which explain exactly which part of the Engine or textures/add-ons etc are currently being processed?

The same lines that IF there was a problem which forced the loading to crash, can be used by anyone with even a hint of experience using file management, can use to identify which individual file might be in error, and can take possible restorative action BEFORE resorting to digging out the log files and posting them to get help?

Me, personally, I kinda like that facility ;)

MrZoolook, in a previous post SpaceEngineer showed the results in current implementation:

As you can see, SpaceEngineer chose to retain debug infos while showing the rest. :)

Yeah, strange, but I totally missed that page right before I posted. After posting, I saw it. Is it possible to edit posts here? I couldn't figure out where that option was, or I would have edited/deleted my post.

All that aside, I am pleased that the debug info is being kept in. And that screenshot looks fantastic too. :D
