Non visible spectrum

I think that's something that can be accomplished by modding

I don't think so, if it's hard to implement for the developer, it is a thousand times harder for a modder.
Also, even if someone tried, it would be such a fake effect it would be very un-appealing for most of users :)

Chat Room Scheduling Thread

Actually I didn't even noticed there was a chat until now. So yeah, it kind of explains why there is no-one replying messages. :)

Totally off-topic thread

I like the dialogue and stuff, but what I'm concerned about is only the appearance of those "dinosaurs", I mean... they're are a little creepy, aren't they?  :? Anyway, if we think about the number of species that disappeared (and will disappear) since we started to climb the food chain, ...

I just love optical illusions.

This one above is probably my favourite, you won't believe it's a jpg and not a gif!

Planets with potentially breathable atmospheres

So theoretically there is life on Mars, just not biological one. And also it is the only actually known planet to be only populated by... robots.

Science and Astronomy Questions

Of course, I can not prove this, I am not a physicist. I suspect, however, that the air pressure would drop somewhat, and thereby also the greenhouse effect would be reduced somewhat. It depends on what you mean with "switching orbit", if it means "slowly changing orbit to reach the ...

Quotes about Universe for loading window

This is how it looks now.

Is it "one sentence per time"? Because it would be nice if it showed it for n seconds then faded away and another sentence appeared, so if loading time takes a lot you have something that catches your brain. (of course only if it's easy to implement)

Planets with potentially breathable atmospheres

Aw man.  Yeah, that is very close all across the board.  The oxygen level is like being a few kilometers above Everest.  If you were already fully acclimated to low oxygen then maybe you could survive for a few minutes to hours -- hard to say exactly.  Without acclimatization you would pass out in ...

Skip to around 12:30 It is creepy indeed. I'm actually very interested in paranormal in general, even if I'm quite skeptic. I guess it's very funny to think about "what could it be if it wasn't a paranormal thing", and in 80% of situations every paranormal thing is pretty much explainable...

Maybe Tabby's Star doesn't contain alien mega-structures, but it's just the effect of a planet that have been ate by its parent star . It makes sense, since that kind of collision would create an high blast of energy with a slow decade (what we're seeing on the luminosity of the star, on an high sca...

Problem with textures and planet terrains

Changing parameters in config file and tweaking options in graphics menu can give even better results, but the performance drops dramatically, that's why the quality is quite low as default. However, since videos can be recorded at fixed frame-rate (not depending by game frame-rate), who makes them ...

Do you miss a reputation-awards system?  :)
Sometimes I feel like I want to increase the "reputation" of someone but I just can't.
