SpaceEngine 0.990 Release

Is there any reason why we should be able to select background stars in System Chart mode? Should that ability be disabled? Dark planets orbiting the inactive black hole at the center of a globular cluster present the best use case for not allowing us to select background stars in System Chart mode...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.990

I mentioned this before with 0.980, but the contextual music player still doesn't change tracks when arriving at a galaxy or a nebula.

Localizations

Comments on a couple of text strings in the English version: first, the 0.990 changelog says " The system architecture mode: 2D map of a system hierarchy," but "system hierarchy" or "system structure" would be a better name for this mode in the chart view than "sys...

Help with creating Mods and Addons

Is it possible to make a nebula addon compatible with both version 0.980 and 0.990? That is, it should use a raymarched model for 0.990, but fall back to a sprite model for 0.980.

Science and Astronomy Questions

Is there a list of pulsars with known values of α and ζ? The ramifications for Space Engine would require neutron stars to have values of NorthLat, NorthLon, SouthLat and SouthLon like auroras on planets do, and to generate those values randomly if they're not known. Given the RA and Dec of a pulsar...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.990

0.980 used to have custom textures for the Mice Galaxies (NGC 4676). Why aren't they in 0.990? https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/nt62wXasTwdoYDcGVZkD2sE4jzJfgMQCilXQ_aun9gJow7110l-JVmOOz90QNp1HuLv5hSpBusMN78GMW4gN4Jp08BD00GF_6h02qhm7jmPqBQWYweYbNVXebjVthLjtRgGK55KfgDoK__lmQOjcxiJWEKC2mXLyHqkS28UOMPJ...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.990

That is completely normal. SpaceEngine can only detect on the date which version of two scripts of the same name should be used. Yes, but it'll become inconvenient for distributing .paks that include locale\eng-db.cfg. Either SE needs to make an exception for handling the modification date of eng-d...

If an addon .pak contains a locale\eng-db.cfg file to store "Franchise" attributes, after Steam updates Space Engine the addon's eng-db.cfg is no longer loaded, unless it's edited so that the file modification date becomes newer than that of the Space Engine app.

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

A-L-E-X , why don't you just look for La Serena on a map, then compare it to SE's Earth? The area of Chile where the eclipse shadow passed over isn't very big. La Serena is the city whose lights appear at the southern edge of the eclipse shadow mask: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/2f0UDvP4A7_JBS...

SpaceEngineer, please add the information in your blog posts about creating static objects and defining triaxial ellipsoids to the "Making Addons" section of the manual.

Level of anisotropic filtering on textures, I think. Less may be faster.

But even when I'm on very flat land with textures stretching off to the horizon, I don't see any difference in the graphic quality from lowering anisotropy levels.

Strange sightings

I've seen a couple of these planets now. What is that jagged edge supposed to be? It's not the day/night terminator; that's on the other side in a straight line. The soil itself appears to be jet black. yin yang world.jpg In 0.990, the black area on planets like this looks like vegetation up close:...
