      Space Haven vs Spacebase DF-9 opinions
      Almost everyone thinks Space Haven is a great alternative to Spacebase DF-9.
      Space Haven is the colony sim that DF-9 was supposed to be. Given the failures of DF-9, I think Space Haven will check the boxes people are looking for.

      Spacebase DF-9 has its strengths but the age shows. Bugs were never fixed and there is no development after it was abandoned by the developers. Space Haven is better because it is currently in development (you can give feedback) and the developers repeatedly showed that their customers are important to them.
