Default ships vs mods

In light of Proteus's points: I like the default ships, but in a vast universe liable to contain many spacefaring factions (even among humanity alone), the single design scheme available at present seems a bit insufficient; thus I'd appreciate having more "styles" available in the editor i...

Work progress - 0.9.8.1

That's already possible, unless the spacecraft is specifically set to not be pilotable in the script.

Sonic The Hedgehog World (Mobius) (SE 0.9.8.0)

It'd be really nice if you could add some pictures so we can preview how everything looks.

Do you play ships?

No worries on whether I can do it manually - as i mentioned I already do that a lot. I still think in the interest of user-friendliness that the sandbox mode could use a handy button to save us all that work.

Do you play ships?

^ Sometimes that works. Sometimes you find you're not in the Hill sphere of the target body. Sometimes you arrive moving at 23948273459249825034958290 km/s and are smacking into the surface before you have time to achieve orbit. Sometimes it works, except your orbit is retrograde or at 90° inclinati...

How would plate tectonics work on these planets?

Interesting indeed o_O I never would have expected that a thin crust could have significant effects on what the mantle is doing, given the square-cube law and the sizes involved.

P.S. WTF Forum, you log me out in the middle of typing a post?

SpaceEngine TODO

It's a bit half-baked, and you may have thought of it already, but have you considered the idea of implementing terrain holes by way of prefab meshes? Something like this: - Mark a spot on the surface as "non-solid" so that it doesn't cause collisions or render terrain - Spawn a pre-modele...

Default ships vs mods

I have an idea for a torch ship that can turn into a rotating station when orbits a planet, and I'd love to see her in game :-D Me too! o_o Those are quite impressive. I do think that if "the official SE game" doesn't allow mods on "the official server" then it will need an expa...

Do you play ships?

Meh, I can kind of see their point about the ships being hard to drive. It's been getting easier in recent patches, and the tutorial would probably have helped me a ton if I hadn't figured it out already, but to this day most of my "play" with the ships consists of spending two hours getti...

In theory, except said arse-talkers tend to delete the comments too.

Be prepared for a reply along the lines of "your a dumb who is brainwashed by NASA and I'm blocking you" because that's the sort of thing I usually get.

What UI skin do you use?

I use Minimalistic Black! I like space-efficient and simple styles like that of EVE Online.

Gameplay concept

I think DarkMultiplayer is still a thing. There's still threads popping up about DMP servers now and then at least.
