General questions about SpaceEngine

14069 is there a way to center on the Zenith? You can look up with Ctrl-Numpad 8 . But as soon as you release the keys, you return to the original view. Maybe it's just my keyboard, but I have found if you release the number key before the ctrl key, the view will lock to that orientation. Press ano...

Lighting mechanism.

How does one do that? A-L-E-X, and others, I see you did not look into the readme text file (of the language of your choice) in the SpaceEngine\docs\ folder. It lists all the key bindings for various features and functions. There you will also find how to move the camera in all three axes, and roll...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

How about making the "horizon" autopilot function for ships a toggle. Meaning that when on, you will fly "belly-down", but can can still use the prograde, retrograde, etc., orientations.

Help with creating Mods and Addons

I am going to go out on a limb and say this is not possible but thought I might ask anyways, but can you create mods (3D models more preciously for ships) in something like Blender and import that into SE? Or will it only work as a pak file where everything is still based on pics? Start here: http:...

Patch 0.9.8.0e

Hey A-L-E-X, I'm not sure any of these issues are 0.9.8.0e patch related, so we should probably take this to a "Troubleshooting and Solutions" thread.

Do you want to start a thread or should I? ("A-L-E-X & Alex's I'll-get-the-hang-of-this-thing-yet-and-everthing thread") ;)

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. fnVxAIid73s 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? I'm no rocket sci...

Good to see you're getting the hang of it. :) 13462 how do you do 5 minute videos on here without using a ton of drive space and getting compression artifacts?
