SC Alpha v3.7
I do like the cave mining aspect, I haven't played this much at all over all this time maybe 1hr over the last 7yrs. You would think you could possibly mine in peace with the size of these planets....? Or will ship scanners pickup people on the surface/under the surface on planets or asteroids? But this is definitely a nice addition, I like it over that ship mining mechanic... I hold it changed, but I hated the fact that you had to buy a mining ship to mine anything in your ship.
3.7 is an improvement. It's far from perfect tho and bugs still can plague a gaming session. Biggest annoyance for now is the interdictions. There is far too many of them. But apart from that, it's getting there, slowly. Is it worth an install? I'd say yes, if only to check how it's progressed since the last time you tried it. Just remember to zero your throttle before engaging Quantum travel otherwise you will burn up hydrogen fuel needlessly. This also helps when you run into a group of asteroids as you can drop out very close to them. So close in fact that if your thrusters are running you will hit the damn things!
