Qr Bbpost Moon has almost 0 Axial tilt. You would just see a thin line across the sky and never see much of the disk. 

But what if you add some really big rings. Like you did to Mercury adding Saturn rings. Or even some larger rings that could be more visible in the sky. :)

If it had the same size rings it would look like this. Nowhere near realistic.  https://i.imgur.com/2nbQfjM.jpg Thanks for the images! :) I don't have some requests right now. Maybe I will find some later. But, as I am writing this, I will use this chance for one more. What would it look like on ou...

If Mercury had rings. We might have something like this here. In some parts of the orbit the rings would probably cast shadows over the planet, and in those shadows it would be extremely cold since there pretty much no atmosphere. https://i.imgur.com/iZu77Y4.jpg Wow, good demonstation! :D But, if y...

If mercury had saturn sized rings they would just not exist after a week or 2. Icey rings like Saturn around mercury would not work. Rocky rings could work but would last longer and still be unstable I'd imagine. You imagine well. Water and ice rings would just melt for a week probably. Maybe for e...

How hot can rings of planets withstand? If Mercury had rings how long would they last?  Looks like nobody answered your question, so I am going for a rescue! As you know, Mercury doesn't have have moons or at least some object orbiting that is big enough to be spotted here. That's because it is jus...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

10888 Blender, I used it long time ago for animations and similar things. But I forgot a lot of things. Unfortunately, I need to learn that. I can only do the easy textures for 2D objects don't worry, I like model objects but I'm not good with the texturing part, so I'm trying to find someone for h...

10873 But it depends on what kind of texture and program I am working on. For modelling I use Blender, I can send you original blend files or obj files. Do you know how to unwrap texture from models? Blender, I used it long time ago for animations and similar things. But I forgot a lot of things. U...

10871 Marko, what about drawing textures? I made many models for modular ship or stations and ground structure in my mods, but I'm not good with texture, so it would be interesting if we can work together... Well, I can try to create some since I am good at it. But it depends on what kind of textur...

Advertising SE?

I have one idea... What if Space Engine becomes sponsor to certain youtubers and other famous people? We have very limited amount of youtubers that would be interested in that since most of the famous channels aren't science and space related. What about Veritasium or some smaller youtubers? I don't...

10605 Re-seat the RAM (remove it and put it back in). If that doesn't work, it's possible that some of your RAM is bad. That didn't work... I removed it and put it back on. Maybe I should do it again since I there is still dust on slots. I have 2x4 DDR3 GB of ram. Should I just remove one ram stick...

Marko S. , you have many months before 0.981 release. Okay, now I feel more comfortable. I will do the best translation I can. Don't know if it would take twice as much time for Cyrillic and Latin translations, but that's okay with me. :) I didn't want to be in a translation group until I finish at...

10619 It is saying in resource monitor 4gb hardware reserved. Usually it means that Windows is reserving memory for the integrated video card, even if it's not in use. Your Gigabyte motherboard does have an Intel HD Graphics card onboard, but with a maximum shared memory of 512MB, which is strange,...

I tried to fix this problem by going in msconfig then in boot, advanced settings and unchecking the maximum memory. I can't enter now the properties and s...
