unnecessary large textures
Why you sometimes (in last update) use so large (634x686) textures instead of use only needed red-square (210x200) image?
Many users haven't too much videoRAM, so would you please optimize such textures to minimum size needed. Best regards.

Sprites are cropped to remove transparent space like that automatically on startup, so you don't have to worry about VRAM. It does however still influence installation size, so in general it would be better to not have textures like that. Consider that fixed for the next release :)

Is there any way to automatically update the dedicated server?

I've probably downloaded it 20-30 times by now, just for 0.17.

Is there a way to fix the railway and make the game playable again in railworld with many cliffs ?

This renders M.I.R.V. and Orbital Ion Cannon incapable of targeting anything outside of radar range, which somewhat ruins the point.

I would've thought that those mods worked similarly enough to artillery.

Is the intro still being worked on?

A few observations - I know you were going to replace those gray boxes, when will that be done? Why not just place a box and arm outside the assembler in place of the gray box - and have the robot instruct the player to put his items in the box and watch them load.

I just passed a stage where I had to load 50 brass plates into an assember, that finished and now that assembler has a red flask - the flask takes brass plates and gears - however, the 50 brass plates were returned to my inventory. I think this would confuse a new player, (who might expect the items to still be in the assembler)

I'm holding out for 0.65535.65535 stable. Because I don't think they're any closer to 1.0 than they were with 0.12.35. If I'm wrong, sue me; it's just an opinion.

1.0 is not a condition, it's a decision.
Using it as a tool to generate sales seems to be perfectly OK for me.

For me as a player, I want a larger player base and a happy team of developpers. If it helps for these goals to call a version 1.0 -- go for it!

See it in the other way : in 1.0, the game will be "finished" and the game will not have to be so updated, so as long as we aren't in 1.0, the less time we will need to wait to see new content
