Mods and Addons - Requests, suggestions and ideas

One would be incredible enough.  It can't be very big either, because otherwise we should have found it already.  A larger version of Pluto (maybe Earth-sized?) is more likely, a frozen lifeless world.

DoctorOfSpace's Mod Emporium v0.9.8.0

14750 as long as AI doesn't get in the way AI might be needed for such a society to come into existence.  The whole system would need to be automated and to automate such a complex system would require some hefty AI. AI+quantum computing?  Do you think we could establish some safeguards with AI to ...

SpaceEngine F.A.Q.

Typbürste , your patience will be rewarded soon . The problem with releasing random patches are bugs, and it may not be a big deal to you but given the early state and the likelihood of really bad bugs its best to iron them out before a major public release.  I have seen some really bad bugs in my ...

Wait, there could be a planet 9 and a planet 10?  I did not know there might be two!

This was an interesting read on Einstein, John Nash and his last days, but in Norwegian.  Google translated , sort of conveying the original story. EDIT: the paper mentioned . Einstein was trying to come up with a theory of everything from what I recall, but in his time only gravity and EM were kno...

SpaceEngine F.A.Q.

Wow there is some impatience going on :P  did you guys know that we had to wait from 2006 to 2014 to get the next iteration of Starry Night? (We had free updates in between, but still, the last one was in 2009 before the major release of version 7 in 2014.)  Meanwhile you should just have fun explor...

If the numbers loop back to negative, then you haven't gone high enough. :)  To illustrate with y=tan(x), that means you stepped too far in x, and thus missed a bunch of y.  In fact you did not just miss a bunch, but an infinite amount of it. :P  Get closer and closer to that singularity, and you m...

No but dividing by zero (except in the special case of 0/0) tends to infinity. The 'singularity' of our number system- haha.  On some level maybe numbers loop too and if you go high enough, you reach the lowest possible number (tangential curves with asymptote 'singularities' come to mind- perhaps t...

Thanks, i find nothing and infinity to be intrinsically linked.  After all, one is the inverse of the other ;-)

Intergalactic stars!

14699 I assume we can't move time forward and see the hypervelocity stars zooming away can we? A-L-E-X , as always, no. We have discussed about this in the work in progress thread and in the Gaia mission thread several times (we = you and me). There is no stellar motion implemented in the code of S...

Intergalactic stars!

yay an exciting add on!  Maybe in the future you can add the 3C Cambridge Catalog and I can finally get to see my favorite quasar- 3C 273!  I assume we can't move time forward and see the hypervelocity stars zooming away can we?  Do we have any rogue planets too?

Wow, I take it this isn't in SE yet? I expect Jack to remedy that situation rather quickly!

Also might want to make some room for this
