Advertising SE?

11126 People love nothing more than eye-candy, ESPECIALLY space eye-candy. But SE right now looks too computer-generated so how to improve upon that is up to the dev.  Even tho 0981 is going to have a lot of new features, planet surfaces need to be more realistic, looking at nebulas, gas giant and ...

Honestly, SE's selling point is the graphics. If the graphical quality increases then it would surely get more people's attention.

Science and Astronomy Questions

What are those whitish 'cracks' you see around the surface of the sun, notably around sunspots? They're visible optically but only near the solar limb. Spicules perhaps?

Sharing space engine's content and stuff through Reddit, other social media, recommendations, et. al bring in a lot of traffic, and any community members can help with the effort. A Patreon for Space Engine would be cool, at least -- not so much a kickstarter as "you can get development builds...

General questions about SpaceEngine

10944 Isn't that highly tedious though Unfortunately yes. But otherwise it is not possible. And it should actually be used only to create screenshots in higher resolution. Extremely unfortunate for a game like SE not supporting higher resolution in Windows mode without having to gigantisize it. :(

General questions about SpaceEngine

10941 How do you increase the Screen resolution for Windows mode? I can only change Window's size and I can't even change the Fullscreen resolution even while in Fullscreen mode... In window mode, you can make the window bigger than the desktop. With the Alt key and the left mouse button you can mo...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

10908 Perhaps some new technique of rendering atmospheres. The only things shown there that SE currently lacks are 3D clouds and volumetric shadows. The atmospheric scattering is pretty much identical. Well from what I see, the atmosphere is crispier and you can see ''layers'' if that makes sense. ...

10893 Well my stuff is related to planets in general, no? Are you just working on modelling the internal structure of planets and their classification in this update only? Of course. I am writing about everything I am working on. Oh. So is that a yes that my stuff is relevant to planets, or is that...

10875 Hopefully with this update we get physically accurate geology, such as Ionian-like mountains on airless planets and new, procedurally generated volcanoes of various types, stages and morphology. Maybe fluvial geomorphology and other types of geological erosion processes. Modelling of a planet...

Gameplay concept

I think a human player in 3rd person would be nice as others have said. Just to walk around, gauge size, etc.

10825 I apologize in advance if this is off-topic or has been answered previously: Regarding to the golden/orang-ish "strains" on selenas, I was told they were probably a graphical glitch. Do you know whether it will be fixed in the upcomimg version? What do you mean? Orange palette is a ...
