General suggestions for SpaceEngine

Make stuff move more. There are lots of stuff that don't move but should, like clouds (i guess), continents on planets, stars in galaxies, galaxies in groups, groups in super groups and supergroups in universe. Oh, and add ability to see stuff in other wavelenghts . Also, add some easter eggs. Like...

Work progress - 0.9.8.1

I am still working on HDR, also added some post-processing filters, like sharpness, saturation, color vibrance. And I remade the settings menu, combining them into a single huge menu with tabs (excluding keys/mouse). Not sure if I should merge keys/mouse settings there as well. Here are some screen...

5710 Aren't there numerous photos of AGN with a tori structure? I think there may be one or two, don't know though.  In the future of SE 3D disks like that will be implemented but that is a bit further down the pipe. Do torus accretion disks flatten out after the compact object is done feeding or d...

5697 By the bulge I meant the strange torus shape of matter around the accretion disk or inside it near the black hole. I'm not sure what you mean.  Can you show a picture?  The accretion disk itself is just a thin flat disk.  Any apparent distortions to that shape are caused by gravitational lensi...

5673 Why do quite a bit of accretion disks have giant bulges, often near the outside or inside? I think you're referring to the gravitational lensing effect, which brings the far side of the accretion disk into view.  Let me annotate a screenshot of one with a few explanations and see if that answe...

Not necessarily.  It depends a lot on the magnetic fields in the disk, and the accretion rate.  GRMHD simulations suggest that there can be quite a lot of structure very close to the event horizon: dlAEbvAUXYg Ultimately we'll need to wait for the results from EHT to know what's really going on, bu...

tbh, wouldn't a black hole's accretion disk appear to be gaseous with little to no streaks because plasma is the dominant form of matter in the universe? Like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Oqop50ltrM

Hey SpaceEngineer you got any more pics of the new, gorgeous nebulae?  :D Stop pestering the man. In fact I think its against the rules to ask for release dates. I asked if he had any more screenshots of new nebulae, once. I did not demand nor repeatedly request, although he is probably bombarded w...

so Im not saying i want creatures on a planet but what about creatures in the Info panel or will that be too much Definitely would be way too hard since this simulator is based on realism. You'd need to understand the complex processes of evolution and create an algorithm for it, which I doubt is p...

Similar to what spaceguy is saying, could canyons/rivers look like this anytime soon?

would also fix deltas and make rivers not look like this

Found a cool volumetric rendering thing

Btw is elements/materials effecting the appearance of planets planned?
