Yes, eventually, but I don't know when.

Try downloading the game from here: https://cosmoteer.net/

Are you using the itch app? If so, you might try downloading the standalone installer from this page.

The .NET Framework is required to play. What's the error you're getting?

What's the exact error?

This is planned. For now, you can use the "Load Shape from PNG" feature to make the basic shape of your ship in any image editor and then import it into the game.

Yeah, VirtualBox performance is really bad, I definitely don't recommend it. Boot Camp will be the best since it's not running on a VM, but even Parallels would probably be better than VirtualBox.

I use a 2015 Macbook Pro.

I've been working on it full-time for pretty close to 2 years now, and it existed as a side project for several years before that.

Cosmoteer can't run without a couple of other things that need to be installed alongside it by the setup program.

Best to ask on the forum.

Were you using Boot Camp or something else? I actually develop Cosmoteer on a Mac using Boot Camp, and it runs great.

This is a common problem when updating the game via the in-game updater. I'm not sure what causes it yet. Please try these steps:

1. Restart your computer.

2. Uninstall Cosmoteer. (It will *not* erase your save files.)

3. Re-install Cosmoteer.

My guess is between $10-$20, but not promises.


It will be on Steam, but it will *not* be free. :/

Is that using the itch app? You might try manually downloading and installing the game.

What would that do?

The installation program should automatically install .NET for you, but if you're having trouble with that, then you can install it manually with this: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=53344

What's the error?

This is a common problem with anti-virus programs that incorrectly block Cosmoteer. Try temporarily turning off your anti-virus.

I plan on making a Mac version eventually, but it's not a high priority right now.

Almost certainly a false-alarm.

I need to get some legal things taken care of and figure out a plan for getting people who pay a copy of the game once it launches. Thanks for being interested. :)

Thank you! :)

Well depending on how many zeroes are in that <incomprehensibly large number> I may turn on pay-what-you-want just for you. ;)

No worries, you're wise to be vigilant! :)

Thanks so much!

Thanks for the suggestion!

Thanks for your kind words! Both of those features are planned, but will take a while to implement.

Camera rotation actually already exists! Press the [ and ] keys.

Yes, more features, modules, and things to do are in the works. And matching speeds is a common request, it's definitely on my list to add that. Thanks!

It's been available for a while now, just not on itch.

Did you know you can increase the game speed?

If it helps, you can press alt-F and the view will lock on your ship and rotate to match the ship's rotation.

It's been a side project for years, but full-time for about 1.5 years.

How come?

This should be fixed 0.12.3.

Thanks for reporting this bug! I'm am looking into it and will hopefully have a fix soon.

It turns out there was a problem downloading Cosmoteer using the Itch app. I believe I have fixed the problem.
