Help! Cannot get Space Engine running on my new computer....

Thank You. The software worked, now SE runs like velvet on the new machine. It also inadvertently solved another pesky problem I was having on the old machine....that I couldn't get materials to light evenly regardless of sun angle. Now, without making any other changes besides running the  NVIDIA p...

Help! Cannot get Space Engine running on my new computer....

Hello; I cannot get Space Engine to run on my new gaming computer. Used the installer and all the default settings that the installer recommended. When I click on it to start, it shows the starting screen oh so briefly and then just dissappears. I bought this machine mostly to run SE and Blender 3D ...

A question about comet tails

I recently opened Space Engine, and everything was working fine. I opened the search box, found something called Rocinante, got curious & opened the info [I] box. Saw it's star Cervantes, & searched for it & hit the "Go There"  button. Once there, opened the solar system planet...

Space engine will not display past loading screens

Thank You.
Deleting the config file did the trick.
I couldn't find the right keyword search to land on that bug thread.

Space engine will not display past loading screens

Two days ago I temporarily tried hooking another monitor onto my computer. It didn't work out so I went back to my origional with, as far as I can tell, my original settings. Then after that, I found that Space Engine will stop displaying anything after it goes through the screen where it shows it l...

Is there a way to light a ship from all sides uniformly?

Hi; I am creating cockpit cabins for cockpit views for imported ships. Whenever they are faced away from the sun, however, they go dark. Is there a way in Space Engine to keep them illuminated when this happens, or make the material/texture used on them insensitive to light for this purpose? In Blen...

My ships render funny....

I've finally got some of my ships onboard Space Engine, but they pop in and out of being shown sometimes, or get part of them cut off depending on the angle viewed from. The viewing distance away doesn't seem to matter.... notice part of the tail and much of the nose is clipped off; https://live.sta...

Help, what does this mean?

Hello; I've been trying to import a custom ship into SE from Blender .obj and .mtl files.  I can't get it to work. I started with version 2.49, then tried again importing from my  latest Blender version 2.72 with the same results. I made the ship the simplest thing I  could, literally a cube with a ...

Can't import my own spacecraft....

Hello; Running SE 9880, been trying to import my own ships from Blender 249. Watched a bunch of Youtube tutorials and read the webpage manual. Followed the instructions from this site, using the .obj and .mtl files from the Blender. Literally copied and pasted the .sss file example from the website,...

Big temp spike

OK, so I took an earth like planet orbiting a Jupiter like primary at quite a distance out, and copied it into a closer orbit so it would have a 24 hour day while tidally locked. I got the 24 hour day, but also a 1000 degree temperature spike. No other things were changed but the orbital distance an...

Atmosphere Scripting

Water vapour stays the same, as I said, all other levels stay the same. I withdrew percentage from N2 only to raise the CO2 level.
Couldn't really see any visible difference.

Atmosphere Scripting

So how exactly does atmosphere work in SE? I wanted to see what effect CO2 levels in atmosphere would have, to I tried an experiment. I made 2 copies of Earth and placed them out at the orbit of Mars. I then fiddled with the atm of one of them, boosting up the CO2 content at the expense of the N2 le...

Mods and Addons - Requests, suggestions and ideas

How about a way to add Blender 3D objects into Space Engine? Useful for creating things like cities, ships, structures, etc, on planet surfaces....
Maybe even some small patches of custom landscaping. Thx.
