For the future, any discussion of my planned space game can be here, instead of my old mod thread, until I have enough progress to make getting my own site worth the time.
Currently the plan is - wait and see if the guys at Unity Technologies are going to integrate PhysX Flex. As I'm going to have the thrusters completely fluid based, for perfect realism should part of one be damaged and leak, I do need a good, fast fluid system.
Meanwhile... plan plan plan, design design design. So much to do!

P.S. UT may not have to integrate Flex specifically; I saw something somewhere about it being integrated by Nvidia into the Physx SDK 3.4 when it's done. As Unity 5 has 3.3, that means only a little push required.

Very little about the game is not known to me. Any questions you got, throw them at me. :)

Post some screenshots! I'd like to know what you've made so far!

Argh, I was hoping no one would ask that! I'm working on very preliminary thruster stuff right now, and that can't be shown with screenshots. I'd take video, but the PC I'm using keeps dropping way too many frames for the video to be coherent.
I am also working on the encyclopedia, because I want all the scientific stuff down before I start building ships on it. I get the funny feeling Particle Systems may have done the same thing. All I know is that their encyclopedia really helps with the immersion, knowing what all the stuff in your ship does.
(Copy paste good idea)
As soon as I have anything that might qualify for a screenshot, BANG - it's here!

Ok! I have a question, though. What do you use (or what else is there) to take video? As far as I know, my computer did not come with a program to record videos.

I used MSI Afterburner. It's technically a free GPU overclocking program I use to boost GPU speeds as much as thirty percent, but to my surprise, I found it could do screen capture videos. Not well though, they drop lotsa frames, but I blame the computer. It's south bridge is dead, and the hard drive is flaky, and some of the data on it is corrupted because of that. :(
I've been searching for an alternative, but there aren't many good free ones.

Thanks! Perhaps Afterburner will help with my Perlin noise problems...
Also, your computers seem to have a thing for bad hard drives. :lol:
