Possible bug: Incorrect calculation of radii/luminosities of procedural B-type stars

Not sure if Red Giants follow that the Mass-Luminosity relationship, I think it only applies to Main Sequence stars?

Possible bug: Incorrect calculation of radii/luminosities of procedural B-type stars

If you knew anything about astronomy (obviously the larger luminosity value was the more correct one, plus the Mass-Luminosity relationship used in the calculation is even actually explained right there on the website and is quite well established) and could have been bothered to do a simple search ...

And what data supports which calculation?

Actual science and reality?
e.g. B0 V star - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tau_Scorpii
either way, their Luminosity should be in the tens of thousands of sols, not hundreds.

SE 0.990 and OBS

how much memory is SE using? OBS also uses a lot of memory too IIRC so if you're running out of RAM then you're going to get lots of lag. I found that my frame rate plummeted on stream when I was on the ground loading up terrain, but it was fine in space.

NST Cluster - 245,000 stars and 640,000 planets!

I've made a much smaller Cluster (called the NSBCluster) for people who don't have a ton of RAM in their machines - this is a 100ly x 100ly x 100ly cube of 1959 systems, and it only uses about 1GB RAM when running. (if you have both inistalled then the systems in each have different names - this one...

NST Cluster - 245,000 stars and 640,000 planets!

Here's the VOD of my Space Engine stream where I explored the NST Cluster!  Found some pretty interesting stuff, including a system with three life-bearing planets and a binary supergiant system!  https://www.twitch.tv/videos/553857118 SpaceEngine4_title.png I significantly updated the pak file...

NST Cluster - 245,000 stars and 640,000 planets!

Stream is starting now at https://twitch.tv/evildrganymede ! I'm showing off my cluster of realistic 240,000 planetary systems that I made with my very own worldbuilding code - come and join me on the stream as I explore the cluster and feel free to AMA about it and  how it was made!

maybe they're either on the SE discord or on the steam forums?

Help with creating Mods and Addons

So the answer is it that can generate planets but you have to at least place them manually first? Hm, that could be doable.  What's the point of the "NoPlanets false" lines though? Those don't seem to do anything if you're bringing in the planets manually anyway (having the lines there doe...

Help with creating Mods and Addons

Next question - can I get the Star Solver (built-in to SE) to generate planets for a binary system I'm importing in a script? It doesn't seem to want to do that by default (the stars come in fine but no planets are procedurally generated for them). Am I doing something wrong...

NST Cluster - 245,000 stars and 640,000 planets!

Here's a cold world with a thin, breathable atmosphere generated by my system - that's ice all over it, but there are a few warm patches with liquid water! In the Traveller RPG this would be a type 4/5 atm.  20200215174209_1.jpg This is what's referred to as a "Thin/Low" atmosphere in the ...

I think I did it... close enough anyway.  - you need a large Surface BumpHeight (about 40-50) and a small BumpOffset (0-10). - then set the Rifts setting to:  riftsMagn 100 riftsFreq 5 riftsSin 10 (incidentally the rifts variables aren't listed in the manual! I only found them by tinkering with the ...

Help with creating Mods and Addons

I'm trying to customise a planet in a script so that it has a few large, deep (about 10 km?), steep-sided canyons running across the surface - what's the best way to do that? Should I be adjusting the BumpHeight/Offset? Or the CanyonsMagn/Freq/Fraction parameters (not really sure what any of those m...
