    Hey guys, as you may already have seen we have decided to open source Seed of Andromeda and all related assets under the MIT license. We hope this helps you guys in any projects you undertake, as well as providing some hope of continued progress on the SoA project itself! We discuss our reasoning in more detail in the above-linked blog post.

    Ben has put up a video (below) discussing the code at a high level, which should make things a bit easier in digging through what we have put up.

    There is also a post on the /r/Gamedev subreddit announcing the decision and has some discussion in the comments.

    It's been a long time since I checked here but was reminded of SoA during a discussion about the merits of Star Citizen, No Man's Sky and Elite: Dangerous.

    I'd like to say thanks for your decision to open source the game, from the moment I learned of it I was very impressed with your idea of merging a blocky, fully editable surface world like Minecraft's with a solar system containing round planets and accurate orbits, even though doing so created geometric problems. Despite that you managed to implement it in your latest version of SoA, even though it is unfinished. A feature like this would allow a voxel survival/sandbox game to incorporate elements from a true exploration space sim and I'm glad that this and your other creations are now available for others to learn from or build on. :)

    So thank you to all the devs involved in creating SoA, I wish you the best in your current and future endeavours and of course hope for a renewed life for SoA as a project on its own or as a foundation or learning resource for future projects!
