Qr Bbpost Glad to see IC 1101's black hole getting some love.

Unfortunately IC 1101's lack of star density makes a lot of people not go to it. But that black hole is amazing :)

I'd noticed how few stars there were in the rest of IC 1101, but I assumed that was just my copy being a little buggy.

Good stuff  Viktor , not sure why you would necessary need to sling shot around a black hole to increase your velocity if you are already using a warp drive but I haven't played with space craft yet so I am completely ignorant. Nice video! Thanks. Yea, i know it's not needed. I simply did it, becau...

This twisted image of Barnard's Loop looks VERY similar to Giygas from Earthbound. I also added a picture of Giygas over the twisted Barnard's Loop to compare and contrast.


That's slightly horrifying. XD

Random Planet Finder?

Actually there is no way to do so, even with scenario scripts that will be present in the next version :)

Anyway, it is a very requested feature.

Oh well. Doesn't hurt to ask, right? :)

This is RS 8474-1353-7-1479916-257 B3, a scorched oceania with a supercritical ocean. The surface pressure is over 1,000 atmospheres, and the surface temperature is high enough that the low-level clouds are incandescent. That's not a sea of liquid water down there. It's a sea of supercritical water,...

Random Planet Finder?

I know very little about the code used in SpaceEngine scripts, but I was wondering if there's a straightforward way to either select a random star (for example, by picking a random right ascension and declination, traveling a random distance, and picking the nearest star), or generate a random RS/RS...

Strange sightings

I guess life on all the other planets is not intelligent enough to have fire or electricity, yet. Perhaps in a future version of SE they will have evolved enough to create their own night-side lights. lol I'm hoping at least for, perhaps, procedurally-generated cities or settlements, or at the very...

I think IC 1101 is my favorite galaxy in Space Engine (even though I usually prefer cool procedurally-generated stuff). It's got such an enormous central black hole that you can find things like RSC 10389-10378-4-2706-294 6, a very hot (>200 C) terra with a thick (> 1000 atm) atmosphere, and multice...

Strange sightings

Found an object with strange, terraced, grid-like tesserae, like on Venus. Except, the "terrain" is the plasma of the photosphere of a red hypergiant.

Science and Astronomy Questions

I wonder how people would react to a black hole suddenly appearing and beginning to slowly devour Earth. Hopefully nobody would try to jump into it. I can quite easily imagine small fanatical black-hole-worshipping suicide cults. Heck, I still remember hearing about that cult suicide when Hale-Bopp...

Lakagigar , yeah actually, I think it's either 5 or 10 posts. If you have any more questions, post them in the appropriate thread  :D I was wondering about that. I couldn't figure out how to edit a post or create a thread. For a while, I thought I was going crazy. Then I realized it was some sort o...

SE Object Extremes

On and off, for the last year or two, I've been searching for the hottest procedural planet in SpaceEngine. This is RS 0-7-936228-949-7-0-0-15 B2. It's a scorched desert at 1,440 C and a somewhat Venus-like atmosphere of water vapor and carbon dioxide. It orbits fairly close to a 10-solar-mass blue ...

Hello everybody! Hobo Sullivan here. Not much to say. Slightly obsessed with astronomy, and SpaceEngine feeds my obsession nicely.

That's a nice volcano. Mine are always so bland and uniform. Yours has snow! Here's a planet I found. I call it the Poison Sea: it's a temperate oceania. Its atmospheric pressure is 0.12 atmospheres. Its atmosphere is composed of (in order of percentage): hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide, carbon dio...

A super-luminous main-sequence star (300 solar masses, 95,000 solar luminosities) with a yellow-giant companion, as viewed from the moon of one of its planets.
