Hi.
@Connor, that's not nagging, it's okay to be excited about things like this. Nagging is when you constantly ask when it is coming out. There's no need to be rude try to be kinder we don't need that sort of thing on this forum.
@Cuddley, well death match will come eventually. You have to remember it takes a long time to code, make sure everything is working together properly. Just think of it this way if you want a high-quality game with cool features it might take a while to put together but in the end it will be worth the wait.

Good news everyone! I'm giving up game development for good! Oh... come on, that was a joke, lighten up. I said lighten up, not storm out and throw chairs. No but in all seriousness, for anyone who's been waiting for an update, i'm still working on it. However, and be payshant with me here, I haven't been able to devote too much of my time to it or consantrate on it very much. Why, you ask? Because i'm getting ready to move out of my parents place. Why is this importent you ask? Because this means, I might not have the usual unlimited time I used to have before to release updates. I don't know what will happen to the project in future, I will try and devote time to it if I can find any, but do keep in mined i'm also looking into other intrests, mainly music, so this is as it stands a side project. However, i'm still looking into what I can with it. Mainly speaking, manual pilot. I am looking into possible ways I can make it work to where you can fly the ship with out using menus, given i've got a system now working where the power of your engines determans the speed. As it stands, the basics for manual pilot are in. So now, the game has 3 different control systems for flying your ship. The menu baste manual pilot of headings, the autopilot, or the manual pilot that requires you to steer the ship with out menus. The storyline is back, though it has a few differences from the original project alpha storyline, no spoilers though. That's all the updates I can provide for now, but I figured i'd at least post and let people know what was going on.

Thanks for the news.
Congrats on moving into your own place. I hope everything goes well regarding to that. I'll never forget the first week at my own place. It was so awesome...

@Danny, @Connor:

There's a huge difference between nagging and hype, Hype is what I'm seeing here with people getting all hyped up for the game though with stupidly high goals and expectations for it, and naturally it won't live up to those expectations at all. So, in short, DO NOT GET HYPED UP TO STUPIDLY HIGH LEVELS!

Also, grats on moving into your own place man, hope it's all working out for ya...and don't panic either

Hi all. Sorry for the extreme lack of updates, it should be enough to say that I'm residing in a different state currently, but will be returning home soon. For those who wanna know what I have done so far before I left, apart from finishing off the manual pilot system with the acception of a few adjustments, and reimplementing the requested feature of engine sounds for starships in multiplayer mode, I've worked on porting the original storyline over, since I was able to acquire a copy of the original project alpha source and still have it on my computer at home. This is of course all still in first person. I'm still debating on how best to do building, I've toyed with 2 ideas now. 1 from wayfarer, where you'd have crafting with sir ten tools in your inventory or workbenches and resources, and building would cause you to have a blueprint, or where pressing b would bring up a menu for sirten things to add, for example, room, door, wall, etc. You'd specify where you'd want it placed in the map and it'd be placed. I will notify you all when I'm home and able to work on the game again.

Greetings all. I'm now back home and can resume work on the update, right from where I left off. My goal now is to get at least the first level of the original storyline ported, and titen up a few things on online mode so their's more stuff to do. After that, it'll be ready to go back up.

Unfortunitly no, I wasn't able to handle where I was living very well, didn't even make it to the getting my own place part  so I moved back in with my parents, at the moment i'm unsure on what i'm going to take for my next course of action, but it does mean i'll have plenty of time to devote to game development, specially because i'm getting back into the idea of computer programming full time again.

@Danny: I'm sorry to hear that it didn't went well regarding to live on your own. Don't give up. if so many people can learn to live on their own, you can do it as well. the worst thing you can do is to give up and spend all your time coding. I'll highly recommend you to keep trying. Start by making some tasks at your parents place and learn from doing that. You'll regret it later on if you give up now. Just a friendly suggestion....
It's nice that you have the time to work on the game again, but it is very important to learn to live on your own and take care of all this...
