Work progress - 0.9.8.1

14025 Very informative, but that not what I was saying. My point was that when SE creates a procedural star, it "invents" three "random" coordinates Ooh sorry, I didn't get you. 14033  have someone or maybe you tried it? is it working or maybe have an error message while open th...

Work progress - 0.9.8.1

13980 Any chance of having full USNOA2, TYC, or SDSS catalog in the future update? To include stars in Space Engine you would need to know distances (parallax measurements) to those stars not only positions in the sky. Space Engine currently has 110,000 stars from the Hipparcos catalogue (the rest ...

This is probably even imposible to do realistically. Even there's going to be dispute about space civilizations been a realistic idea in the first place.

13536 Not really happy about the plutonium contamination- plutonium is the longest lasting toxic substance we know of.  I guess that's better than bringing it back here though A-L-E-X , in order to assertain this you need to get in depth with the orders of magnitude involved. How much plutonium we ...

Recreation Image Dump

There was a thread in the old forum with a lot of recreational images. I'm going to post all the ones that where made there so it doesn't get lost, if all of you are ok with that. Also consider that in the old thread the restriction was not to edit in any way the shots. FastFourierTransform Voyager ...

Density of Planemos

Have a look at this thread from the old forum . Here we talked about rogue planets before those where included in Space Engine. I think there is a lot of usefull information there Making it short: Lower bound: 1,8 Jupiter-mass planemos per main sequence star of the galaxy (that means around 450 bill...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

13124 Oh and the reason I posted 4 x 10 (40) images was because I was trying to show stellar and galactic motion on different scales over long periods of time.  I made videos which would have shortened everything to one post (and are probably more elegant than posting single frames) but couldn't fi...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

I suggest adding the next: Retrograde circumbinary objects That's right, we know that in binary systems there is a very compact region around each star where there is stability to harbour planets for geological time-scales, you can't be further from the star or the gravitational pull of the other wo...
