Have seen a Nookrium video on this.

Seems like a decent attempt to recreate and elaborate a bit on X series, and I personally like the political stuff that wasn't in the original.

Claiming sectors is sth that Egosoft always considered but never actually did.

Would play/help a little if it was a FOSS game but paid-for and closed - no. 

Esp. when FOSS stuff like Endless Sky is around which has a similar or higher level in a sense and in which you actually can participate/modify and whatnot.

Thanks, 

but due to the language / libraries and IDE used, there's no point in opening the source source. You'd need at the very least $2-3k worth of licenses to even be able to participate in such a project. It's also a multi-threaded 120kloc beast, further limiting the number of people who'd be able to participate. More to the point, we're not seeking help from third parties so late in the development cycle.

Our current projects are built with a more sane/free language, so opening their source code (at some point) is an option we're considering. 

However, we have no plan to make our games free,  as it's our livelihood and UG took years to develop.

Cheers.

Uh! Sounds like really bad design choices were made with this one.

Good luck then. Will watch your progress. :-)

Maybe if you manage to produce sth extraordinary I'll buy it to support you. (Prefer donations though. More fair.)

I know that video was recent, but UG is a 3 year old game sold in multiple stores (as such we cannot sustain a donation model) with 5 major content updates under its belt. While we're still publishing small updates, don't expect anything major for UG. Especially as we're working full time on another title at the moment (after that we'll likely make a sequel to UG).
