You can create scripts with any text editor. For example with Microsoft Notepad. It must be an editor that creates pure text files. Programs like Word or WordPad are not suitable for creating scripts. Scripts for SpaceEngine must have the suffix .sc. So for example ' MyFirstSystem.sc ' and ' MyFirst...

Can my PC run Space Engine?

5304 so that will reset the entire program to "factory default" settings? Yes. If you delete 'main-user.cfg' and 'save-user.cfg', then SpaceEngine will be reset to the factory settings. Of course, your last discoveries are preserved, which are stored in the file 'journal.cfg'. If you have...

Can my PC run Space Engine?

5297 is there any way to return to default settings after experimenting with these (and other settings)? Delete the file ' main-user.cfg ' from the ' config ' directory. You may also want to delete the file ' save-user.cfg '. SpaceEngine will then re-create these files from ' main-def.cfg ' and ' u...

Xoran,
actually, also a star like our sun should have a gravitational lens effect.
Through this effect the theory of relativity has been proved, on 29 May 1919.
The effect is definitely visible. 8-)

Xoran , this only means that the gravitational lens effect is very small. As in the picture. You have to go very close to the star to see it. This does not mean that the effect is not there at all. That the gravitational lensing is not present at all, I think is a bug in SE 0.980. Possibly, of cour...

Xoran,
as you can see in the picture I posted, SE has gravitational lensing for white dwarfs. At least in version 0.973.
If it has no gravitational lensing in SE 0.980, then this may be a bug.

TheRedstoneHive,
this may be a bug. I can not test it, SE 0.980 does not work for me at the moment.

By the way, 17 solar masses are too much for a neutron star. Neutron stars have only a maximum mass about 2 - 3 solar masses. At a higher mass, the star becomes a black hole.

Can you post a picture?

Perhaps that is the gravitational lens effect. Exactly the same as with black holes or white dwarfs.

Help with creating Mods and Addons

TheRedstoneHive , if you make a star script and place it in ' addons\catalogs\stars ', you have only limited parameters available. ' AccretionDisk ' is not one of them. In addition, you need position information for your star. ' RA ', ' Dec ' and ' Dist '. If they are missing, SpaceEngine creates t...

SE 0.980 has the setting option 'low', 'medium', 'high' for 'Ship warp quality'.
Since I can not test this at the moment, I do not know what the effect is.

SE 0.981 (Steam version) has the settings 'off', 'low', 'medium' and 'high'.
