DoctorOfSpace's Mod Emporium v0.9.8.0

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. :)

Clouds the whole time for me. Weather forecasting sucks. :cry:

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

I followed the directions, installed a new clean copy of SE 0.98, installed the patch, and got all my stuff and preferences set up. Upon seeing the eclipse from the ground where I live, to my utter shock and complete apocalyptic horror-movie horror, there is a depth-sorting issue. The moon wouldn't ...

Work progress - 0.9.8.1

The IAU rotation models, do they include the gradual slowdown of Earth's rotation? Meaning, if I set the date to 1 Million AD, would the Rotation Period and Solar Day stats show a slightly longer day than today?

Science and Astronomy Questions

2 questions from me: 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? 2. Knowing that here on Earth, plants contribute big time to moisture and water...

I saw this blog post in my FB feed, and it uses a screenie from Space Engine, but apparntly only credits the screenshot taker, not the game.

Total Solar Eclipse 2017

11746 I try to be a glass half full kind of guy, so maybe it's a non-event, but for me, its better than nothing. It is definitely better than nothing.  With eclipse glasses or a pin-hole projection you'll see a crescent Sun, and shadows might seem a bit strange -- sharper in one direction than anot...

Total Solar Eclipse 2017

11711 Granted my area will get 82% Totality, but since I don't have the means to get to the Path of Totality, this will do. That's awful.  An 82% eclipse is pretty much a non-event.  If you start walking today, you might get into the totality zone in time. ;) I try to be a glass half full kind of g...

FWIW, I myself am on Intel HD 4400, with the latest Drivers. JackDole , I'm not entirely sure what graphics card I have. but I don't think its my graphics card is the problem because all other add-ons I have work fine without TPE add-on, but once I install TPE, not just TPE planets are ghosting but ...

Help with creating Mods and Addons

Okay, I'm stumped. JediTrekkie first brought this up in my thread, but while I initially thought it was an issue on his PC, now I'm not so sure after double checking on a clean SE 0.98. On JediTrekkie's computer, planets appear to "ghost" after installing my TPE mod. When double checking P...

Total Solar Eclipse 2017

According to Weather.gov, for my town in MN: Monday A 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. Partly sunny, with a high near 80. South southwest wind 5 to 10 mph. "Partly Sunny." So far not good for here. We'll see by Friday. Granted my area will get 82% Totality, but since I don't...

EDIT: I double checked on a clean version on SE, and indeed there's an issue with my mod, which I can't figure out. I posted about it here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=116&p=11715#p11715

Thank you for bringing this up! :)
