SE Object Extremes

and septenary meas 7 right? because if you use the search tool you can actually find a couple of them (and I mean procedural ones) yeah I haven't found any 7 star systems using the filter yet, and nothing with more stars in them either - which is what I was asking about in the first place. Has anyo...

SE Object Extremes

Just to be sure, what do you mean by hierarchical? "hierarchical" is just like any smaller multiple system, with everything orbiting a single barycentre and the 'sub-systems' orbiting their own barycentres etc. a hierarchical 6-star system is usually three binary systems which could be al...

SE Object Extremes

Has anyone found a hierarchical system with 7+ stars (that aren't the ones around supermassive black holes in the centre of galaxies)? They can be searched for using the filter but I've never seen one - or even one with just 7 stars. Are they even in the game?

Long Exposure shots in Space Engine!

I've been experimenting a bit with the scripts at  https://www.reddit.com/r/EliteDangerous/comments/6jz0pr/some_longexposure_pictures/ . To make them you need to install Python 3.6.4, then install the imageio library as described there, copy the scripts shown there into .py files, and then run the m...

This is a long exposure test shot, made using the python scripts from https://www.reddit.com/r/EliteDangerous/comments/6jz0pr/some_longexposure_pictures/ They were a bit of a pain to set up as I needed to install python 3.6.4 and then install the imageio library (as described in the reddit link) and...

But green stars are also possible.

In SE maybe they are, but not in reality!

Is there (or can we have) a "Hide all GUI" button?

Yes, I know that, but you have to pin/unpin them individually each time. What I'm asking for (since it apparently doesn't exist) is a single button that can be bound to make all of the GUI elements - text, crosshairs and toolbars - appear or disappear, which would make that a lot easier to do.

Is there (or can we have) a "Hide all GUI" button?

Thanks, that's useful to know but that doesn't quite go all the way - it hides the info text but the crosshairs are still visible and the sidebars are still there. I was after a way to quickly toggle getting rid of *everything* except the view (like what you get in an F11 screenshot).

Is there (or can we have) a "Hide all GUI" button?

Is there currently a "Hide all GUI" toggle button that hides (and brings back) all the buttons, toolbars, info text, etc from the screen? I know that F11 takes a screenshot without all that but that's not what I'm asking for - I think it would be nice to have a way to just instantly hide o...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

As far as I can see aurorae are all the same colour regardless of atmospheric composition - since the atmosphere is explicitly generated in SE would it be possible to have the colour of aurorae vary depending on the constituent gases?

largest procedural planet https://sta.sh/03xr0zk9djy Aside from the ridiculously enormous planet (which is clearly silly), how is that 9th planet at 1°C and the others around it are at hundreds of °C?!

Your SpaceEngine Videos

The shadow of the huge close companion to this unusual Scorched Titan rushes towards us as it eclipses the system's sun. The companion's surface temperature is over 1300°C and its red glow transforms the landscape in its shadow.  The animated gif version can be found at: https://gfycat.com/gifs/deta...

[0.9.8.0] Elliptical galaxy appearance

Look, this is what I mean (ignore the core, this is just a quick thing I made with the gradient fill in photoshop. I'm talking about the edge of the circle here).  I think the one on the left looks more realistic because the stars fade to black at the edge. The border of the one on the right is more...

[0.9.8.0] Elliptical galaxy appearance

18626 Al the pictures of Elliptical galaxies that i've seen fade out into the surrounding space and don't have that edge. In computer simulation, everything must have a border. Elliptical galaxy model is not an exception. I get that everything must have a border but my point is that in this case I ...

[0.9.8.0] Elliptical galaxy appearance

It's the sharp edge that bothers me, and the point-like central spot. Al the pictures of Elliptical galaxies that i've seen fade out into the surrounding space and don't have that edge. The bottom picture looks better than the top one in that regard at least. Some do go to a bright point in the cent...
