What is procedural generation ?

Core to Stellar Horizon is that its virtual galaxy, including the stars and planets, are all created through random procedural generation
using deterministic algorithms. A single seed number is used to create these features via mathematical computation thus eliminating
the need to create each of these features by hand.
This enables the game to have a massively open nature: it is estimated that with the 32-bit seed number, Stellar Horizon virtual
galaxy will include over 4 billion planets. Any player will be able to visit a specific planet once they know its galactic
coordinates, given their spacecraft has the capability to do so, and find the same features as any other player,
as these coordinates serve as the seed for the planet's topography and environment.

Why does this look like a scam?

Damn that compression! 26 MB for infinite freedom sounds nice I suppose

The dev has certainly had a decent history on the app store. Radzone was pretty well liked here. Some of his games date back to 2010, and many have received multiple updates since their release.

This looks like cheap no mans sky. Even the hud is similar.

that would be neat if we have something like No Mans Sky on iOS.

Hud reminds me of elite, and game seems like elite frontier where can go down to planets surfaces.
We must remember that elite frontier, came on 1 (or was it 2?) 1.4mb floppy discs.... And yet contained thousands of planets that you could go down to and explore and dock at.
So 26mb for this game is possible

It's really hard to use. I bought it but I'm having trouble figuring it out. You can descend to planets but it's just a static screen and you can basically scan the 3D image for resources. You can also land on stations where you can theoretically recover your fuel, and buy and sell goods from station to station. I haven't yet figured out how to access the plot yet though.

The tiger ship in the screenshot looks like a viper from elite
Looks like ship designs use basic graphics, so maybe it is genuine and is actually 26mb.

Must use a online database if discovered planets, can be visited by other players.
Wonder if this is also multiplayer?
