35910 These look like extremely thick rings - aren't they supposed to be more like 10m in vertical height? (if that's a typical Federation ship then the rings should be more like the thickness of the edge of the saucer section?) Maybe that's why it's over-taxing your system Read Vladimir's response...

You get used to it, he has every right to think and feel the way he does really. I don't agree that SE is doomed, but I do agree the team and development process can do better.

Shorter lifespan, but this applies to any piece of hardware.

Qr Bbpost Doc it might be time to get a second 3090 and run them together in SLI ;)


Would need a new PSU for that, plus SE doesn't really support SLI, nor does my wallet support another 3090.

35841 Performance is quite bad, we we were forced to reduce render resolution. Just to point out how hard this is on performance, I have a RTX 3090 running at almost 2200Mhz, it never gets over 75C in anything, I pushed 85C today just on these rings My LEDs are temperature based, red is above 80, I...

35837 Then enlarge it. So many people write on the forum they are ready to work even for free I have been working on getting more people, with little luck for the skills required.  Many who have offered to work for free lack the required experience to do what needs to be done.  Programmers are alwa...

Short answer:  Lots of work Long answer:  SE's current lighting system is a fairly simplistic analytic system, overhauling such a system to support shadow maps and advanced self shadowing would be an extensive overhaul to the engine. Such an update is of course planned, but right now there are a lot...

Image Dump

Played SE for a while in 8k this morning, runs pretty decently with everything on highest settings, and MSAA at 4x.  I could do 16k, but most browsers and Discord tend to have issues with that high of a resolution.

35698 does this selection automatically become available when a video card with enough VRAM is detected? No, but you can manually enter a resolution or use the oversize app to resize the window. Generally when I play SE I have well over 100fps in most cases, but for taking large high resolution ima...

35693 Wow, how do you get the game to play at 8K and 16K, Doc? Oversize app, cant quite play it in such res as it takes up both my monitors, but the framerate, even in motion, is above 10 to 15 depending on AA settings. 35693 Sounds like it has a ton of VRAM 24GBs, 16K resolution takes up over 23GB...

35677 The 3090 is the only card somewhat available here in Aus, but at an absurd price of $3500, considering the 1080Ti was only about $1100 when they first came out here. The pricing is quite absurd, I only went for it because of the rising prices on tariffs and because I had the money to do it. I...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

34919 I wonder if this is still going on? Nope, its the government.  They have sidelined all producers to supply to hospitals due to high demand, the production act gives access of goods/services to those who need them most.  Stores can't even buy the stuff, and if you think the Amazon supplies are...
