When will you open pre-orders for the expansion? You're essentially the only studio right now I'd trust with something like that.

Crazy to think it's been over 10 years and the factory still grows.

Appreciate the expansion tease, but I can make out just about nothing except angel's-style casting?

Anyways, happy new year!

The other thing looks a bit like an underwater capsule or submarine

Or something contained, like fusion? Although with the teased aliens, I would agree that it is something underwatery.
I am happy that we got a recap, and sad that there are still no news.

Happy New Year everybody! Glad the journey still continues.

What is your opinion of these people who put together personal/useless mod packs on the portal? Do you think they pollute the mod portal?

I don't recall any cleanup/removal of mods except they are against the TOS.

I was hoping to find out some news or even a release of the expansion this year, especially this last Friday of 2022. I'm checking everyday since Feb when expansion was mentioned. Every Friday is a chance of some news... Well it seems that I need to wait a bit more.

1TB per day? That's incredible on its own. I wonder what the recurring cost for all of that traffic is.

One icon looks like a melting plant, so I think we could expect alloys and new minerals. That's not very surprising, I think.
The other I don't know... some electro-thing to modify items?

I do not post often on this forum. I remember one i made about the DLC and i suggested that nauvis is well explore except for ocean. The only picture post by the dev about the unknow DLC, was a sort of aquatic lifeform.

Happy new year !

I think the blue building on the picture is a power switch because it has the red and green wires, and that means circuit network connexion. Plus it clearly looks full of electricity, and ready to connect. i'm intringued !

It's good to hear you guys are doing well on the sales, so that you can steadily work on the expansion :)

I like the sneak peak. I wonder if the green structure has anything to do with electrolysis for hydrogen/oxygen production. The red one looks like a beefed up smelter, looking forward to using that. The blue electric one looks like something to do with power, maybe an addon to allow long distance power transfer? Completely guessing here.
