have had SPG2 since the early days of release on Steam and totally enjoying the game. I am amazed at the amount of polish that SPG2 has and the dedicated work of the Dev Team is second to none. Anyone wanting a Space Sim/RPG grab this game now.

Wow. I love space sims and this is the first I've heard of this game? I've seen it up on steam and I just got it. I'll post my thoughts after I get a solid 1-hour play. Def looks promising.

I got involved after tracking modding activity. Developers are determined to support modding and looks to be cooperating greatly with community. That plus great looking directX 11 engine... I think this one will have a long history :)

I got the alpha on Steam early on. I've been returning to the almost game every day and got around 60 hours in it. Great stuff even for an alpha. Or especially for an alpha. Played some games that were officially finished that were far worse than this. Sure it's got a lot of the features missing, but so far it's looking great! :)

Well, you made me go and take a look at the SPG2 on Steam, overall player's reviews are like 50 good and awesome, 4 bad due to alpha issues, so I bought it :D So far have 5 hours of play, and am loving it, the basis of the game are big capital ships, your crew, officers, customizing your vessel, kinda reminds me of Sea dogs, or Pirates of the Carribean in space. Engine's streaming, so theres one huge continuous map, game's overall atmosphere is pretty good. Thumbs up for an indie! :)

Now, hope for Startrek mod as well ;)

Yep Wild, been tracking the progress of both the game and the mod, and have to say, that guy is making the mod fast as lightning, dunno how many guys are workin' on it so far, but the game's mod- fiendly as hell.

I'm not good with scripting, but modeling is sth I'm rather ok with, so I fiddled a bit with the editor that comes with the game, and gotta say, from exporting your model to importing it in-game and making it fly-ready - it took me about 5 minutes, which in my book is really neat.
