        Hey bench, just wanted to say Im loving some of the new features but please dont let the development team take their attention away from the existing bugs, low performance and server issues :)
        1. Bench

          The feature team is separate to the bug team so both are being worked on at the same time :)

        keep up the good work and dont let any of the others discourage brave choices for the game, transporters for starters :P (one of the best ideas i've heard in awhile)

        You, my friend, do your job really well. I was looking over your postings and it seems that you really are passionate about interacting with the community and that's really honorable. Even though a lot of people here are quite hard to talk to, you do it anyways. Thanks for that. I really appreciate it, and I'm sure there are many others also do.

          Thanks Employee763 it's good to be appreciated when you put in so much time and energy so that our players can not only enjoy the game but also feel connected to those of us who get the privilege to develop it.

        hi Bench. I REALLY want to work for schine and develop starmade, and learn to program in general. i am 15, and is there any place i can learn to program on the language starmade is written on? (i am pretty sure its java).

          I haven't looked but there's probably some tutorials online for java, that would e a good place to start. You're at that age that you can probably pick it up quite quick

        say bench I realize you have been busy and all with the new updates, but since the new stuff is taking a long time to get started, I think its a good time to do some catching up. So how about some new videos on master class you know that logic tutorials you started way back.
        1. Bench
          Bench
          I'll be restarting the Masterclass now that the new logic came out. I paused on doing the memory circuits because i knew we'd be releasing the flip-flop block which would go into that episode. but yeah we'll pick it up soon.
