State of The Impending v0.1 Sim

Dear Fans,

At this point, I am apprehensive about giving you another date for the release as my never-ending optimism is at odds with estimating how fast work can be done.

That said, the light at the end of the tunnel is visible! So we are looking at days or weeks instead of months. I am pleased to say that Meco’s UI is coming along well. For some reason, I made it a responsive UI, meaning the UI should work fine on a 4k Monitor down to an iPad and even on a 5-inch Android phone! But hold your horses; unless there is enough demand, we’ll stick to PCs for now. 

For today’s update, I have used ChatGPT to summarize my code commits to Meco’s git repository. I understand it’s still quite verbose. However, I have a hunch that you can appreciate the work going on with all the details.

Once again, thank you for believing in this project, and stay cyro-cool.
