'Ello all - Specialist290 - 09-29-2015

A few of you may know me already as a moderator over on the Kerbal Space Program forums. I happened to see the thread the developer posted over on our forums by happenstance, and the concept so intrigued me that I bought the game rather quickly after playing around with the demo for a bit. (In fact, I'm still waiting for the transaction to process as we speak Tongue )

Anyway, I'm hoping that I'll have as many memorable hours designing and managing my own space station in High Frontier as I do designing and flying rockets in KSP. I've been rather fond of both space simulators and city management games in the past, and seeing something like this that combines the two (and, furthermore, that's based on real scientific principles that we could in theory apply starting tomorrow) naturally presses all the right buttons for me.

Great! I really look forward to your feedback.

I should warn you that High Frontier is a much better simulator than it is a game at this point. You can certainly play it, but it's all sandbox mode; apart from some achievements, you'll have to pick your own goals to work towards.

That said, I hope you have lots of fun with it, and stick around as we add more and more real gaming to it in the months to come!

That doesn't bother me all that much.  I'm in it for the experience of running my own space station; anything else is just an added bonus.

And I'll certainly try to stick around and keep tabs on things as much as I'm able.  Thanks for the warm welcome!
