What UI skin do you use?

Minimalistic red. Gives me that '1980s computer' vibe without being illegible.

I think 47 people (as of this posting) is entirely too small of a sample size to make decisions based on.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

There are *four* pulsars in PSR J0737-3039, plus I'm seeing some really weird graphic artifacts: http://imgur.com/a/pIgI9 I see 2 pulsars. You do have some weird issues, could you please share your se.log file which is located in your SpaceEngine/system/ folder, as requested in the topmost message ...

The only way to fix this to be more realistic is to change way disks are rendered in such a way that allows them to be sheared.

I'm okay with that, since the current disks look like they're taken out of a 2006 video game.

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

I've looked at a few and it doesn't appear that way to me.  Can you post an example? Looked at both Sagittarius and the central black hole of IC 1101, which I think is the largest one in SE (and whose disk is around a light-year across). i think the speed of the latter is over 20 times c, just by e...

7964 It appears that the accretion disks around supermassive black holes rotate much faster than the speed of light.  I've looked at a few and it doesn't appear that way to me.  Can you post an example?

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

I saved a location on a planet near IC 1101's central black hole, but that planet (and star system) no longer seem to exist when I go to that location, even though I tested it earlier and it worked fine. I just materialize into empty space Going to the current time makes the system appear. Anyone kn...

I just realized that supermassive black hole size in SE is tied to how large their galaxy is, not their real-life estimated size. This has kind of soured my black hole-gazing experience.

I mean, it obviously needs to be fixed - I'm just not sure why they would be this way.

It appears that the accretion disks around supermassive black holes rotate much faster than the speed of light. Maybe this is just the result of scaling up from normal sized black holes?

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

1. I'm having difficulty locating galaxy M60-UCD1 - nothing comes up when I search for it. Wikipedia claims that it is a satellite of NGC 4649, but that galaxy is 72 million light-years away from us in SE, instead of the claimed 55 million (although NGC 4647 appears to be in the correct position in ...
