Rodrigos Terrain & Clouds Mod

I have an idea, I think you should update this or make a mod to have volumetric/3d clouds! one if the most impressive scenes in alien covenant is the height on the the bump maps on the clouds maybe making the bump maps have more height could replicate this? I actually did that with my Belle Hades p...

Science and Astronomy News

As far as it is proven that it is only dead rocks, I do not mind. But as long as some moons have the possibility that they contain life, we should be careful. But of course this question will be clarified, long before we are able to build a Dyson swarm. I also imagine that I am on a slightly higher...

FastFourierTransform , great analysis!  The Plutonium indeed gets diluted to ridiculously small concentrations very quickly.  Even if much of it survives the atmospheric entry, it will sink into the lower layers and be vaporized and mixed into the core anyway. :) If aliens at our tech level happene...

Adding to the Jupiter thing, with Jupiter in Mars' orbit, why not make it one of its' moons? In Europa's orbit, for example? How different might Mars be then?

Total Solar Eclipse 2017

Is it just my memory playing tricks or was it possible to see the Moon's face during totality?   Possible; totality is about the same magnitude as a full moon, and afaik, it doesn't outshine the earthshine. Presumably, much like when the eclipse as seen from Earth doesn't seem to have much of an im...

11868 1. Knowing the Moon gradually recedes from Earth as the planet's rotation slows down thanks to the mutual tidal interactions; does the rate the moon recedes get slower as Earth's rotation get slower? You are totally right. 4.5 billion years ago the Moon was born at just 3.8 earth-radii of dis...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

In Patch 0.980e, there is a bug that causes the tropicsLatitude and axial tilt to reset when modifying the Earth. A second bug exists where manually setting tropicsLatitude in the .sc planet script does not affect it in-game. http://i.imgur.com/6AJOJm1.png Planet "Earth (2100)" { ParentBod...

I have a question, can it correctly model eclipses going back hundreds of years and hundreds of y...

Open the avatar.sc file, and change parent object from "polyphemus" to "coeus", the planet's other name. Thats what I did, and it worked. :)
