Hello Everyone! Hope everyone is having a great weekend! This update is a pretty big one, so let's see whats changed!

Whats new?

This update introduces the scenario mode! This mode allows you to use ships build in sandbox or the steam workshop and create scenes from them! You can move or rotate the ships in any way you would like to! You can also select and move multiple ships at the same time!

This mode also has the option to load or save your scenarios so you can edit your scenarios for later!

Time Scale

You have the ability to slow down, and even stop the scene, allowing you to move the camera around to observe the battle in a very high detail! The scale can be changed using buttons or +/- on the keyboard.

Example of timescale

High resolution Screenshots

In this mode, you have the option to take high resolution screenshots! Available resolutions are 8K, 5K 4K, and 1080p. This allows you to create very high detail photos of your scene! The format is in jpg and might add the option to toggle different file types.

4K example

Cool game, looks like it has some potential! If you're looking for some inspiration, id recommend checking out the Atomic Rockets website. I think it's pretty useful for projects like this.
