Thanks for the great update, it is very exciting to hear how things are progressing. I'm glad to hear how much of the Core is being updated... it just ain't LT without planets
VIVE owner here as well. I'm very happy for you being able to play in VR, let alone experience LT in VR... can't wait to do so myself someday.
If you ever get to the point of coding a lightweight seed/system browser where LT just generates stars, planet, asteroids, nebula and can perhaps reload seeds with the press of a button -- such an app would be a great candidate for a free LTVieweR.exe that would generate ton's of attention for LT and make many VR owners happy... and it wouldn't need any of the juice that is "LT the Game"
