Strange sightings

The ecology of a planemo would be based on chemosynthesis, not photosynthesis. It should be possible for organisms to evolve infrared-sensing vision even if there isn't any sunlight.

Text misalignment is still present in spanish, even after changes Would it be acceptable in Spanish to use "Compos. marina" instead of "Compos. de los mares"? Thinking about this made me notice another potential problem with the way SE handles localizations: should "life&qu...

COMMUNITY ADDON - Catalog Fixes for SE

HIP 66892/HD 119445, a star with a known brown dwarf companion, has an apparent magnitude of 2 when seen from Earth in SE 0.990. This makes it as bright as the stars in the Big Dipper, and it looks like an extension of the "handle". https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/PJEmQvYHfKo5fUFxyQgijXE...

The subscripted Jupiter symbol ("1M ♃ ") is too small and hard to read. Should bold fonts also be included for the main menu and locations menu? https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/a2NVmnUkm4qgRrCh5THBqvii7sVvnrUWpvHm-rPgyGl348VyJDgEFRr68LQIyGfrSsZ_FlubgiY1tDs4XR-a2uAAjB1Iv3kStUymbfvVwoLKntF...

Because the question of to what extent Taiwan should be treated as a separate country has been in the news recently. Maybe SpaceEngineer should just give up on displaying flags in the language menu altogether?

Another justification is that the USA and Mexico are the most populous countries that speak English and Spanish. But the more controversial question is, should the flag for Traditional Chinese be the Taiwanese flag instead of the PRC's?

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.990

Has anyone else found that they can no longer select clusters in build 1690? When I click on a cluster, I can only select individual stars within the cluster, or if they're in a dense starfield inside a galaxy, I end up selecting stars behind the cluster. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/i8ULzta7k-...

This is a problem, though: if you click on any of the input fields in the camera control menu, and without entering any text click on one of the other input fields, the previous input field disappears. If click on all of the fields, all of them will disappear except for the last one you clicked. All...

Of course it would be good if there was something like ephemeris data for the Voyager probes. But if there is a corresponding space probe ephemeris file, I would not know where to find it.

SpaceEngine would need to be able to parse SPICE kernels like Celestia can.

Could you see the picture in the previous post I made about polar ice caps? I edited my post to use a different Google URL; can you see it now?

Nothing is more active than thought, for it flies over the whole universe. Thales What is there in places empty of matter? and Whence is it that the sun and planets gravitate toward one another without dense matter between them?

A couple of observations about build 1690: (1) This is a bug -- the angular value for field of view doesn't change when you zoom the camera in or out. (2) Superscripted characters are OK, but subscripted characters look a little too low. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/VEQnxqahlFCzyZsuADMFfzemaPnm...

There's an error in pol-gui.cfg. It should say
InternationalName    "Polish"
LocalName            "Polski"

instead of the other way around.

How often have you seen polar ice caps in 0.990? Does it seem like SE doesn't generate ice caps on worlds that should have them? https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/iShwrN2ayo8SMXUyR7npCLAbLYFt7Bgtoy4D5-UZRXaeC7Lkd69rygJaYy1UidTs9-6gpHpKwNtPlu-ilRE91dYt6jCrkqq51l5JQJkb-JUveTc4rLVt3DeU1mAn_EqDn78-Lfj6I...

When you click on Continue in the main menu and it switches to the loading screen, if you have contextual music playing turned on, SE will start playing a song and after a few seconds switch to a different song matching the context of the scene. Why can't the menu music just continue into the loadin...
