If you visit a different star every sec of your life, you still wont be able to see all of them. Exploring all of it is impossible ;)

It sounds really cool, but it also sounds like something that'd get cut before release, like the Z axis and most of the simulation aspects in Sins of a Solar Empire.

What I mean is, won't something like this hurt the game's mass appeal? I mean I'd still love it. It'd be awesome to be able to find some distant planet and become a hermit, and then build a little outpost on it or something... come to think of it, I don't know what we can do on planets in this game other than enter their atmospheres...

It won't be cut, it's the main feature/idea of the game.

Does the info "Selected:" say how many stars are in this 100 LY region?

If yes then... BLOODY HELL that's ridiculous!!! Will people be able to destroy planets and starts to lower that count? :D

The "selected" label refers to the unique ID number of the currently selected star.

In theory though, if you fly far enough, you should be able to reach the outer stretches of the universe, where it is expanding. Would be interesting to fly on and see what's behind. Would be funny if in real life they do that someday and get a "program error".

What does the "Jump 24%" mean?

and the "class K"?

How much stars are in this sphere?

Probably the probability of successfully jumping to the selected star.

K is the spectral class of the star, how hot it is, how bright it is, how big it is, and what color it is. A K class star is orangish, and slightly smaller and cooler than our Sun.

If the area of space depicted in the image has a similar density of stars to the Sun's neighborhood, there are probably somewhere around 14,000 stars within the sphere.

The current estimates place a beta at around mid to late 2013 to early to mid 2014. The developer has put Infinity on the back burner so he can finish the engine to license it for funding. The engine is nearly complete and is due to be released sometime between this month and and probably the middle of the year.
