comment How should chat be transmitted and stored in an MMO?
Would using HTTPS work? Presumably chat messages are not as latency critical as the rest of the game and so could be sent and recieved via HTTPS (e.g. using WebSockets) using a separate mechanism from other game related packets.

comment Is using Box2D for simulating gravity “in space” a good idea?
The goal is for enough accuracy and performance to build a game on top of the simulation - ultimately I would sacrifice accuracy to ensure that the simulation runs in real-time, however not to the point where it seems "unrealistic" or "buggy" (although I realise that in reality what is "unrealistic" in a game is very subjective)

@fableal I'm not 100% sure at this stage whether or not I will include collisions, however it seems fairly likely
