It's based on the number of comments and views, and since this thread has been around awhile that's why pretty much.

Thanks Ezio, already started working on the next update, but might take a while... since I'm gonna concentrate on the graphics for this one... want to spruce it up a bit more.

Let me explain somersetting to some people, Solar is not pre-rendered videos... It's REAL TIME RENDERED 3D GRAPHICS.
