This is a work in progress alpha build of Pioneer. Explore the galaxy, trade, fight or murder.

Alpha 7 is out.

*Planets now have Axial tilt.
*Planetary descriptions now show the axial tilt.
*Many planets, even habitable ones, now have some volcanoes.
*Some planets will contain a super-volcano or two, like Mars.
*Standard rock worlds have been reworked somewhat, terrain was modified as well as many new colours added.
*Asteroid terrain and colour has been tinkered with slightly, there is more height variation but less jagged areas too and the colours should consist mainly of grey and brown with some variation occasionally.
*Some atmospheres are much thicker, you will have to think twice about going to places like this in slow ships. Venus and Titan are examples of worlds with much thicker atmospheres, its more realistic this way although harder to see where you are going on those worlds.
*Some planets have a new graphic in the system view for easier recognition.
*Added adverts by Potsmoke66 and station retexture by Marcel.
*Fix planet atmosphere alpha bug with shaders disabled.
*Many other terrains have been tweaked to stop weird things from happening and some have a few added features.

Thanks go to Tom for creating a wonderful game and for letting all of us fans help out :)

Trade, fight or murder?
So it's Being Moral, Debatable or Immoral? :P
Still, looks interesting in a retro way =)

Those are the options currently in the game as well as exploration, there will be many more but this is only an alpha version.
An in-depth mining system is on the cards, but theres still a lot of time until that will be here.
And your correct it is a retro game, its a modern remake of Frontier Elite 2. All built from scratch.

You know what this game needs? a Mini-game where you go in orbit scan for resources and send probes to the surface to extract them.. /jk
Looks good for now i believe it needs a minor ui fix & a mini tutorial on what all that stuff do on the panel. :)
