I know where you're coming from with that, but I would say it's certainly not like that and not meant to be like that.  I forget exactly which indie game it was that made it kind of sound a bit iffy at least with their advertisment about it.  Was it Blacklight Retribution or something like that?  I can't remember right now. 

What this is is more like Minecraft's alpha/beta development, but with more user/fan input including just suggestions.  These 2 guys can't do something of this scale completely on their own.  Also, there are many many people out there who love doing stuff like this - sims, 3D modeling, vehicle physics, etc - for a hobby.  Hell that's how Outerra started out isn't it?  You know people actually find game development fun?  Games wouldn't exist if nobody did.
Yeah, thats right!
And nobody it's forcet to pay that 15 bucks!  ::)

However, some people they want all that stuff, but pay? No thanks!
Those who feel just like a beta tester, so this must be their problem. Myself, i feel like a explorer!  8)

I should probably remove that statement about beta testers that sounds like a feature. It comes from times of closed beta when everyone asked to become beta testers, so we said that soon everyone can become a beta tester. But for newcomers who don't know this, it may sound strange indeed :)

The statement is correct, cameni. We are preordering an unfinished game, and so we become testers, don't we ? We find bugs and glitches and help the developing.

Yes, but for some it apparently sounds like an obligation :)

Not sure who to try and reach or how to do it.
I did the initial download and started it up. I got a screen asking me to buy the Beta program. I paid my $15.00 but have nothing to show for it. When I click on the exe to start the game, all I get is a full screen shot of an airport in the Alps. My mouse turns into a controller and the only thing it will do is pan around to look at the scenery. I have no cursor or any spots on the screen to do anything with. There is no way to even shut it down. I have to go to Task Mgr to shut it down. Also there does not seem to be a place anywhere on the Forum pages for me to post a new string. All I can do is reply. I must be missing something, but can't find a place to download anything more. Can someone help?
Thanks.

The support forum where you can post topics is here, this here is a news forum where normal members don't have the privileges to post.

You didn't have to pay to try the demo, there's a big DEMO MODE button in the lower right corner when you start the program.
Once you get in the game, you are in UFO mode where you can move with WASD keys. When you press ESC, a sandbox mode opens and mouse appears. You can quit from there easily, but you can also do many other things. Please read the help that is available via the sandbox menu or directly on F1.

I beg apologies if this was already posted, but is there any advantage running Outerra on Windows 7 64 bits instead of Windows XP 32 bits?

Not much yet, but it's expected Outerra will become 64-bit program in the future, to fully utilize available memory and speedup the 64bit architecture provides.

Hi everybody,
I'm a new happy supporter of this impressive project. I'm sure public success will follow soon.

As far as the content:
- looks are gorgeous, I'm surprised how well it runs on my average system;
- flight and car physics are nice at start but i believe they're only the beginning;

My questions would be:
- can the game host higher sofistication physics models and exponentially more objects, meaning are there more resources left for a pc to handle?
- what is the development plan for the planet? you will provide regular extra content or it will be left exclusively for modders?

Thanhs and good luck.
