Alpha 4.00 is out, and this is my first look at it. Unfortunately, as a Premium Beta buyer, I can’t actually play it. Thanks to Scott Manley for this peek!
There’s some amazing new features here! You’ll also notice some new options on the right UI menu, like ‘display brightness’ and ‘sensor scale type’. I’m sure there are more changes and additions, but at the moment I am just drooling over the hyper-drive and frame-shift features, and the potential glimpsed in the galaxy map. You lucky, lucky Alpha backers! 😉
STOP PRESS: Here’s a video of the lovely hyper-space jump graphic in 1080p, courtesy of Robin Barnard. If you want to see some Newtonian flight physics, watch this cool Isonina video of supercruise with flight-assist off.
