General 0.9.9.0 Discussion

I do have one wish for the final release: make the game constructive instead of destructive. Make it a game of colonization, not one of destruction. Have planets become developed, not destroyed. I love the planetarium and exploration aspect of space engine. My personal biggest fear is if space engin...

Work progress 0.9.9.0

Wow. It seems like developement for this version is wrapping up! I love how everything in the starting menu will be animated. It's much nicer to look at than a random image of your previous travels., Which could be an unappealing image of tangled orbits.

General 0.9.9.0 Discussion

I have a question! 

Will we see some more procedural galaxy groups and clusters so the procedural universe will look more similar to the cataloged universe?

Work progress 0.9.9.0

My 17 R4 has a 1060. Does that mean my game will just be nominally slower? 

I don't think it would be that big of a deal if it were. the graphics still look utterly insane.

General 0.9.9.0 Discussion

Since so much is going to happen in 9.9.0, I'm wondering what we will see in 9.9.1, possibly 9.10.0?

Work progress 0.9.9.0

Maybe it can be released a little earlier. I mean, while I do appreciate almost two years of development, maybe it would me smarter to do a quiet release of this version then make a patch finishing everything up with all the other touches.

General 0.9.9.0 Discussion

I know this may be an unpopular opinion, but I feel space engine should remain a simulator. The grand scale of this game is so large, I think actually adding game elements would take away from ten plus years of development. People would care more about "objectives" than actual exploration ...

Work progress 0.9.8.1 = 0.9.9.0

Would we be able to draw our own constellation maps from other stars?

General 0.9.9.0 Discussion

I don't mean to sound pessimistic, and I'm not asking when it will be released. Rather, I'm now more concerned if it *will* be released at all. There hasn't been any updates in a while. and this chat seems to have gone down in activity, which brings me some worry. I love space engine so much, and I ...

I dont know if a premature release will be good. all this waiting actually is producing something that is worth it.

Work progress 0.9.8.1 = 0.9.9.0

Wow.... Sorry for the redundant post, but I just watched the video. I can't stress enough that I'm out of words. This game is truly beautiful. I honestly thought that graphics like these could only be accomplished in very short Clips, like the ones in space documentaries. This not only meets that, b...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

I was always thinking of this: what if you could compare two different planets from two different systems?

Work progress 0.9.8.1 = 0.9.9.0

Will the textures be dependent on the stats of the planets, as in atmospheric temperature and pressure determining if a certain texture appears? Will impossible Regional cases be prevented, aka water ice next to magma without any thermocline or medium in between?
