You could make it so that if you fly for 7 years through space (no stargates), you'll eventually come to another star system. Making it realistic and long gameplay. Might be a little boring though

unlike a couple days ago, today I spent much of the day changing something that will be very visible, but doesn't change gameplay at all

The strange thing about that is that it would actually be hard to do something like that because of the inaccuracy of computer floating point values.

I wasn't thinking of literal ages, just several minutes at most. But you're right, it'd be really boring and completely pointless.
It's great one can fly out into open space, though; even if there's nothing to see or get to...

You can fly into open space basically forever. There's nothing out there and you won't actually get anywhere though.

If it's what I think it is (was), it should look very cool! And, if it is what I think it was, it sure kept me busy implementing it this weekend!

Have you had any major hitches with the alpha? In other words, have you had to change any core game play mechanics or is the process mostly about polish?

Also, you probably saw that GOG is now acting as an indie distributor and they have a new 14.99 price point (at least for Legends of Grimrock). Just wanted to update you on that since there had been some discussion of it at one point.
