Did you try by deactivating comet trails or auroras from F4 show window? If you did, I'm afraid I'm out of ideas.

Well yeah, but I would really prefer to have comet tails... Auroras work fine for me, it's just comets.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

spaceguy , apparently latest Intel graphics drivers for your E5-571P-55TL are dated back in September 2015 (windows 8). If Windows 10 doesn't automatically update your drivers I'm afraid you could be stuck with that. Haswell GT2 was only an internal name for HD Graphics 4200/4400/4600 market name. ...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Images aren't working, here's a properly composed imgur gallery of them. http://imgur.com/a/ZiKe9 Ok, so final post about this issue. Here's the gist of it, turning on comets causes the screen to either flicker black (when moving) or stay permanently black (within a certain distance) when viewing th...

8609 How is the homunculus nebula so symmetric when eta carinae is a barycenter binary  (according to wikipedia's depiction) I had to do some research to figure out the answer to this question, so apologies for the wait.  It's very interesting though, so I hope it's worthwhile. :) The b...

Me too! , im also excited for cloud shadows and 3d clouds (volumetric clouds)

3D clouds are by far my most anticipated feature. Just imagining worlds with them is breathtaking.

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

Cesare , if you don't stop making demands and double-posting (or in this case quadruple posting...) you will have to take some time out from the forum. 8707 Space Engine must have the ultra texture pack included in the .exe download of the Engine. This would make the download almost 50 GB, that's a...

Science and Astronomy Questions

Heh. :p  Well, is  it that hot?  I think it depends how you look at it.   Consider that a 2 solar mass star isn't even twice as hot as the Sun.  A 16 solar mass star is ~5 times hotter than the Sun.  When described that way, maybe it doesn't seem so surprising. To really see why stars work the way ...

B's start at about 2 solar masses.  O's at 16.

How can a two solar mass star be so hot? :O

(God I hope that doesn't come off as stupid. Aren't B stars typically blue?)

Science and Astronomy Questions

How can stars with 4-7 solar masses have B-O spectra if they're not massive enough to achieve such?
I was under the impression that the more massive the star, the higher the rate of nuclear fusion and thus the hotter they are. I thought this was only possible in 15 and above solar masses?
