    @pedro16797 I really like that alpha value idea. I made a suggestion similar to that, but I think your idea makes more sense. Certainly worthy of being a standalone suggestion.

    @AndrewGarrison could you add a color editor (RGB, HSL), without the need of a visual interface, just the numbers. This could make tweaking colors much easier. Also alfa value (with a limit in 10 or so to prevent invisible parts) would be amazing. I don't know if I should be posting this in suggestions since this update is in beta.

    We just released a new update, version 0.6.8.1. I tweaked the Flight Tutorial a bit. So, if anyone wants to give that a shot, that would be great!

    @WNP78 lol, of course we believe you! Your cognition is often intimidating, so it's nice to see that you can have a brain fart on occasion! :D

    @mjdfx150529 @AndrewGarrison I genuinely have no idea what I was thinking there... This is why you don't try to use your brain when you have a cold and are about to sleep! The double letters must have thrown me off. I'm sane, believe me.

    @MrMiner101 We are releasing on mobile next year. Sadly, I can't be more specific than that. The last time I tried to make guesses about our schedule, I ended up on camera eating black licorice! Never again!

    @WNP78 Nope, it's RRGGBB.

    @AstronautPlanes to be fair (I don't like what squad is doing too) SR2 is in beta and ksp reached final release long time ago, it's to be expected that a early access game has more updates
