Gameplay concept

Of course nanotech could be used to grow cities, but... well... we have a real-life example on nanotech - it is the life. How fast tree or flash can grow? Even if we create artificial organisms specified on a very quick growth, it's doubtful that you can build entire city within few minutes. Months ...

HarbingerDawn's 0.9.8.1 Streams

There is a free JPL ephemerides: DExxx (I am using the latest one DE436, which covers 1000 years), as well as analytical solutions VSOP87, VSOP2013 and numerious solutions for major planetary satellites. Why we need anything else?

Translators

11210 Is there a schedule to change the encoding and make the Arabic/Chinese/Japanese/etc. translations possible? No schedule. Adding support of those languages require implementing Unicode and custom TTF fonts, and also alternate writing direction (for Arabic). Not in priority, sorry (90% of marke...

Just run SE and watch.

New planet classification

styrax, thanks for info!
So, in Chinese it is not possible to "invent" a word, like we do for "terra", "carbonia" etc? These words does not exist in some languages, but it's fairly easy to construct them and use as a class names.

Green also could be a chlorine :) Pink hue is made by methane absorption lines in spectra, it is a prediction of color of a T-dwarfs and warm gas giants. Yellow/red is h...

11057 Will the new raymarched nebulae still allow you to use cubemaps to define the shapes of catalog nebulae? No, they are completely procedural. 11057 I realized from looking at LifeLive42's "Stellar" video that dust clouds in galaxies are still using sprite rendering. Are they going to...
