Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

POST UPDATE ON ORBIT/DISTANCE BUG TO THE MOON.....SOLVED.....       I tired a number of different scenarios and methods to roughly recreate the Apollo missions and times. I kept coming up with very unreasonable results that did not make sense considering other tests I did as well when I thought ther...

Yes it does begin to slow down immediately after shut down.. With that said, slower speeds should not result in a far faster arrival time.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Although I have tried that as well, with sim results,, when i abandoned keplerian principles simply to exhaust all trial and error. I started using the complex math, and worked my way down to simple experiments.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

I attempted the scenario backward last night from the moon to the earth. This time I used an object without thrusters or engine, to set my orbital trajectory as close as possible. I slowed to about 4.5 miles a second and still am making the trip in under a day.  Let's see a screen shot with the num...

I can't make sense of it because like my sun simulation the time was accurate at the speed of light.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

tornadotodd , I might be mistaken, but I think this is related to something that's been noticed before where your ship velocity depends on your framerate.   It's definitely weird and needs to be looked into. Something like that would make sense. I left the sun on another experiment at the speed of ...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

I haven't done the math or even researched the Apollo mission speeds, but isn't the Moon in Earth's gravity well? Meaning you do not need to achieve Earth escape velocity to reach the Moon? Without doing so would result in a perpetual orbit of the Earth, and the speeds and burns whether accurate or...

Work progress 0.9.8.1 = 0.9.9.0

Are ALL nebulae planned on being changed to volumetric models, or are there just going to be a bunch of new models for procedural space? As far as I could tell from the test videos, none of the nebulae being shown were real ones, but I could be wrong. So are nebulae such as Orion, Barnard's Loop, E...

Close to 10 years steady, on and off until I finally made the career jump, sold everything and moved to the Alley.

This is what I do! tryq.jpg I've never seen a single tornado in my whole life. I think I would have needed to change my panties if I ever saw anything like that. I live for it. I am a professional photographer and storm chaser. This year I will be deploying probes in the path of tornadoes in hopes ...

General 0.9.9.0 Discussion

My wife and I once done figuring out my storm chasing budget, for this year, as well as overhead for a research project, (deploying probes in front of tornadeos) hope to donate near 10k the cause give or take a little.. I am trying to come up with some additional holes to aid in some nice models for...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

POSSIBLY BIG BUG CONCERNING SPEED AND DISTANCE, PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AND PLEASE MORE THAN ONE PERSON CHECK MY OBSERVATIONS TO SEE IF I AM CORRECT, OR IF SOMEHOW IT'S A MISCALCULATION ON MY SIDE. EASY TO HELP AND CHECK MY OBSERVATION.!!!!!! I hope a number of people will test this. Thanks. I Often l...

Atlantis Launch with boosters mod

Screenshot (10).png tornadotodd:Work Progress, on launch pad.. Somethings have been a little slow. Big thanks to David Hutchison and Orbiter for use of the model. The surrounding lidar tiles for KSC will be the biggest challenge I think. Screenshot (31).png Sorry I meant to put this up as compariso...
