Thanks for coming and checking out the progress on our first Game. We have made many changes and enhancements in the last 4 weeks. As detailed below, there are likely a few changes we missed as major changes were made to the system layout and an all new player interaction system.

The New Contextual Communications System will prompt you to press F, this is used for many things in the game. This will simplify interactions with NPC's and Stations, while also overhauling mining. The Mining is now a toggle on / toggle off type beam with all new Sounds.

New stations and planet rescales are already done for all Low orbit maps, but in the next release.

To start a new game, make sure to quit and restart the game first, then press new game. Currently if you press New Game it will not clear all the stats properly from your old Savegame.
if your turret becomes out of synch, look where the ship is pointing and press any of these keys A, W, D to reset the turret.
It is possible to not end your Game if busted hard. In future you will go to Space Prison, if you cannot pay the police fines.
Please do not press O for option menu in Station, in future you will need to exit the station. The Station Menu currently pauses after 10 seconds. This will change in future versions.
