The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

I mean, pollution is directly linked to population and both must be controlled at all costs.  Sometimes the people who have been around for too long lose sight of what's really needed.  Pollution in big cities is directly linked to birth defects, autism, asthma, ADHD, rising rates of cancer, anxiet...

Work progress - 0.9.8.1

Another problem is a noticeable tiling, but there are many methods to fight against it. I know a technique called "Macro Texture Variation", but I never found any raw implementation of it, just on terrain generators of game engines. I think it consists in randomly rotating and maybe also ...

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

when we colonize space hopefully we will evolve beyond the need of pollution-causing and stress-inducing cities. Yeah, I think cities are stressful and dangerous mostly because of cars. I know I'm presenting this idea like a stupid teenager that wants to change the world, but I guess it's more appl...

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

I think you forgot that the terrain is not always flat and featureless.  The layout of cities are restricted by hills, rivers, lakes, and so on. Of course I considered it.  The cities doesn't need to be perfectly straight, they can follow those features when it's possible. When it's not possible th...

Talk to me about SE as a community

You are a very kind person! How do you think I could best engage with people about the ways that they use SE *as something social spread across so many different contexts and kinds of applications and platforms*? What role do each of these different platforms and contexts play in the bigger picture ...

The Future of Humanity & Intelligent life in the universe

Do you think our conception of "cities" needs to be renewed? Imagine having to colonize another planet, a terraformed Mars for example, is it convenient to build cities like we did on Earth? Cars can't be powered exclusively by electricity s o combustion-based means of transport are necess...

Talk to me about SE as a community

How would you describe the SE community? Do you think that there is one? I think there is a small community. Why so? Because there are people that remained on the forum for a lot, they moved from the old one to the new one. It is a very weird community because it is made of people of very various a...

Planets in the next version will have so many details on them you could easily just take a planetary system and write a book out of it.

He didn't create the orbital 3D path, but synchronized photos with time and emotional music makes it an awesome video. I almost had tears.


Do you think we'll have some data from the interior of the atmosphere, or the probe wouldn't have enough time to send it to earth?

Help with creating Mods and Addons

Has any one made city night light textures, or is it possible? I saw this picture and thought it would be cool to do some thing similar. Of course it is possible, but you need to have some basic skills at Photoshop/Gimp and you need a lot of patience to place the lights exactly where you want them ...

Do you learn with SE & its community?

I don't personally like Anton Petrov videos, his videos are too dispersive. It's like "let's make a video about x topic", and he randomly record some footage from SpaceEngine/UniverseSandbox without having a clear idea of what he's going to do. He has margins of improvement though, but rig...

Dreams (lucid dreaming, precognitive, etc.)

DoctorOfSpace , that never happened to me (ignoring the fact I'm 20 years old so I can't remember dreams of when I was a newborn), and I also get very few Deja Vu.  Maybe the two things are really correlated. However, something similar happens to me: Occasionally I suddenly remember a dream I had (...

I'm pretty sure it will be even more interesting with the new update, when you will be able to change saturation/contrast/etc. might become hard to say which one is real and which one is SE  8-)

12712 Wat are you also seeing issues with the "e" patch with regards to textures? I miss my clouds and I miss my rippling waves Sorry  A-L-E-X , I actually haven't updated in a while so I don't have an answer to that.  Surely someone else will though. 12713 Wat when do you think we'll be ...
