Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Sometimes I get a crash that occurs, there are symptoms that I've learned to cope with it. first the planetary System thumbnails start to flicker.. rather they blink in and out. then before I know it the game crashes.

I found this neat thing, wonder if it's implementable

Variability of stars is not implementable now, but it's planned according the TODO list . Cool, looking forward to it, what about the accretion disks from binary stars that get too close, is that already a thing? I also had quasars on my mind.  A lot of Neutron stars and other similar bodies have j...

CDLOD, maybe get your low poly LOD's to gradually transform into the High Poly ones

I found this guy on Youtube, and I wondered if it's too much work to implement something like this.

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

I'd actually love to read about them, I've found out that a lot of erosion filters simulate water or liquid erosion, by using physics to carry sediment down slopes, it's not done at run time of course, it's thousands of iterations at code time though.

Intergalactic stars!

I should probably preface this with, an IMO..  sorry, I just tend to blurt things out without being polite.  I'm kinda weird that way.

I really doubt that they can see or detect something that's the size of a basket ball a lightyear away, let alone 300k lightyears.

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

I found this paper on how to generate hydrolic channels of erosion using node trees.
http://arches.liris.cnrs.fr/publications/SIG2013.html  perhaps this is faster than simulating water physics on billions of displacement maps.

Plate Tectonics as Gifs

Actually now that I think about it, plates take a really long time to move so, maybe you only need to pregenerate up to 3 frames at a time.  could be millions of years to see the changes, so as long as there is a cap on how fast you can set the timescale then you should be able to increment the seed...

[quote="Gnargenox"]Might as well add Dark Matter then too :) We have recently seen Rouge Black Holes as well. They would need to have a velocity added to them, since that is a requirement to actually leave the Galaxy.[/quote] dark matter is just stuff that astronomers haven't accounted for...
