This may be answered somewhere I overlooked, but are there any plans for online multiplayer?  It's great that local multiplayer is in, but I don't often get to take advantage of that feature.

My understanding is that no, SH will not have network multiplayer (since it wasn't designed for it, "adding" it would possibly be as much work as the original implementation itself).

Yep, exactly. This game is designed around large numbers of entities moving extremely precisely, and trying to translate that to online multiplayer just wouldn't be feasible. Maybe if the game gets roaring popular or something, but I think it would be a situation that would still have to be approached really carefully because the likelihood of bugs is so incredibly high with something like that.

Thanks for answering my question.  Here's hoping for the success required to think about maybe adding it. :D

Indeed.  :)
