IT WORKS!

Here's the fix for anyone with 64 bit win7 and probably vista, since this isn't documented anywhere specifically on their forums I'm going to post it here :P

If you're getting the MSSTDFMT.dll file is missing when you press F9 for necessary star system information:
1. Download the dll here http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?msstdfmt
2. Drop the .dll in C:/windows/syswow64
3. Open up the command line as administrator and type the second to last line outlined in red

It will now work upon restarting the game.

I think it means five game years.
with 5 sec increments the difference might be less than you think...

5 seconds or 30 days; I've already gone over 7 years in a few days.

Contrary to what the amount of detail might suggest Steve(the maker of this game) actually notes that the primary goal is fun with detail and complexity as the second objective. Whether it actually is fun is for you to decide.

Does the shipyard support enough tonnage for the design? Also, commercial shipyards can only build commercial ships so if your design is military you won't be able to build one there.

Check whether you are trying the right type of yard commercial or naval.
check whether it has sufficient capacity slipways for your design.

I'm having trouble getting cargo loaded, but my first freelance freighter is supplying infrastructure to mars.
Building ordnance also is difficult. :p

Crashed when  advancing time several days in research window. :(

Seems like it could be a fun game, but it is way too glitchy-crashes every few minutes. I might be able to live with that, but the lack of scrolling thing is extremely annoying. Really. Annoying. Also, I have no idea how to design new ships.

Its not that difficult, aside from not knowing what are good values to strive for.
just create a new class (or copy one), then slap on components untill it looks as if iy will work. lower right corner has a design assiustance window, that vmentions lack of lifesupport etc.
There is a dedicated tutorial on the forum/wiki.

I love how the tutorial tells you to cheat to get a buildable engine right away  ;D

I have a few survey ships now, nothing with weapons yet.

I'm surprised to hear about all these stability problems as I have yet to run into anything, and I can't find much mention of stability problems on the forums. Are you sure its installed correctly?
