New planet classification

10592 I personally prefer shorter categorizations, but that's kinda besides the point. I do have issues of a more technical nature, though. We are decided to limit the classification to a 3 words: [temperature] [surface] [size-][class]. Sometimes it could be appended with additional info: volcanic,...

Work progress - 0.9.8.1

10570 I have question addon with new solar system browser binary. what about 2 moons with barycenter around parent barycenter binary planets will show 2 moons in the same cell? No, "binary" is a pair, by definition. Barycenter is generated for that pair only, possible outer moons revolved...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

10532 Hi everyone. I'm returning to Space Engine and the forum after a long time away. Have to say that I'm excited about where things are going. Not sure if this is the right thread, but I had a random thought... Would it be possible to adapt whatever method is used for comet tails or evaporating ...

And also dew to phase state of a salt water/ice and very high pressure.

New planet classification

10556 Well yeah, I know that, but I wasn't considering ices as minerals there. Then in oxygen-dominated star systems the most abundant minerals are olivine Mg 2 SiO 4  and pyroxene MgSiO 3 , and in the carbon-dominated systems they are olivine, pyroxene, silicon and titanium carbids SiC and TiC, an...

All ice worlds (except very tiny ones) have subglacial seas, even Pluto. It could be considered as a molten mantle - H2O is the most abundant substance in these worlds.

10538 Earth: T1sm Mars: T0s Jupiter: G3h This is interesting idea. But users must be familiar with this system somehow, they will go to Wikipedia and be surprised by not finding anything. About separating to rocky and carbon planets: recent studies says that if a parent star have C to O ratio large...

Old classes could be useful in scripts, for a backward compatibility. Engine can easily automatically translate old classes to the new ones, for example desert -> desertic rocky terra.

Qr Bbpost Whaat? This are huge news! Did you already start working on it or it is such an easy implementation that it can be ready in just a month? 

It could take less than a week, there are plenty of free astronomical code libraries exist for this.

New planet classification

10469 And there's the fact that Italian adjectives tend to be in reverse order compared to English! 10471 For me anyway, just flipping "marine rocky" to "rocky marine" seems to make it roll off my tongue easier. 10478 The main issue is, as mentioned by XBrain130, that in italian...

No, I can't, sadly. Donation rate is just $600-800 per month. This is enough only for food and living.
