    now that we are talking about beautiful graphics...
    I wish (as many others) that we can have more control of some of the visuals effects, like shadow, darkness, fog, sun intensity, postprocess, etc, etc...

    this are old screenshots from the Source Code Planets era

    Nice.
    Now the game looks like LSD infused hallucination.

    As soon as SE stops consuming 16 gigs of RAM and crashing, I will fix the visuals again. Now I can barely play. Deleting old shader cache folders helped a bit.

    Do you also experience sudden fps drops for no apparent reason? I have around 70 fps, all is dandy and then suddenly I have 3 for a few seconds. I'm not talking about the game freezes when its auto saving. I have that issue for a while now. Might be my hardware tho, I don't have any top notch gaming beast of a computer.
