SpaceEngine F.A.Q.

32868 is it possible to turn on the orbit of one specific object (i.e. only earth´s orbit)? 33215 If you click the cog button on the panel where orbits are located, you can tick which type of bodies show their orbits. You can't specifically pick a body out, but this should work at making your scree...

33180 For example this planet here has an unrealistic orbital period. All of the others do aswell. You're right. I had forgotten that, but due to a bug in SE 0.980, SpaceEngine calculated the orbital period incorrectly when the objects orbit around a barycenter. I have made a script for SE 0.980, a...

It should also work in SE 0.980.
However, the planets of course look different.
For example, Castor C IV has a ring in SE 0.980 that he does not have in SE 0.990.

Help with creating Mods and Addons

33164 I am having trouble with creating planets in the castor system. I can't make planets orbit around the barycenter. Could someone please make an example solar system around the 3 pairs of stars in the system for me so I could make planets around it using that as a base line? Which barycenter? I...

33122 Is it possible to add custom soundtracks to SE? You can create a folder called ' music ' in the ' addons ' directory and put your own music there. The music must be in ' .ogg ' format. (If you want it to be played in context, you have to change the ' context.cfg ' in the ' data\music ' direct...

General questions about SpaceEngine

You can also adjust the size as desired in window mode. (Or at least as large as your available VRAM allows.) 33117 2) Make sc...

If octopuses had a longer life span and a social structure, they would probably be the dominant intelligence on earth.
But octopuses are loners, every octopus has to learn everything on its own. And he doesn't have much time to do it.

I really think that life is so unlikely that it actually only happened once in the universe. (Unless a hitherto unknown mechanism is discovered that makes life creation much easier than expected.) So it's really a question of whether life originated on earth or came to earth through panspermy. The q...

It all depends on how likely life is to emerge. According to my information, the actual origin of life is an absolutely unique, absolutely improbable process that cannot possibly happen a second time in the universe. But we know that there is life. So the question is, did life originate on earth? If...

But unfortunately I made a mistake. I took the average diameter as the radius. In reality, the object is only half as big as in my script!
(But somehow I think this doesn't really matter.)
