    Will the small pistons on the landing gear actually function? Can they take a little bit of crushing power before they give away?

    I am concerned on how much of a performance hit these new textures will be. As it is now 3GB of VRAM is not enough to play Space Engineers in Space smoothly, planets might be impossible after these textures are in-game.

    Of course. Because these are weekly update. And they can not finish every single feature just within a week... Modelling those stuff require months...í
    These weekly updates are aimed for bugfixing and improvements...

    Even other games from big publishers & dev teams has several month delay between updates...
    --- Automerge ---
    What would you see there? :D Thousands line of code, nothing else... Because it would be the very same as now except with less bugs... A programmer blog abou it would be more useful...

    Wow, it's not even time for me to go to work yet. Awesome models! Glad the walking on alien sand having the grass animation was fixed twice. Smack it again for good measure.

    I really liked this particular status update video. I've seen the other ones, but this one seems more like an actual demo of progress rather than another "hype" marketing vid. As I write this, I actually feel like Keen is treating me as a client who invested in their vision. Like they sincerely want me to know what they are doing and how the product I'll receive is going to perform and look like.

    Maybe it's because I work as a marketer for a similar company like them and we do such demos as well... Or maybe I just haven't seen any other dev house with an EA title make the effort.

    Anyway... Congratulations Keen SH! You've made an experienced IT marketer believe you're genuine! That's a feat!
