General 0.990 Discussion

29379 After purchase the 0.990,could you run it via clicking the exe files directly, without the lengthy login process to Steam. D:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\SpaceEngine\system\SpaceEngine.exe Incorrect, it will not run that way. It must be launched through the Steam client. And Steam doe...

Qr Bbpost is the steam version of SpaceEngine going to have "steam achievements"?

Not at launch, but probably at some point.

Qr Bbpost Saturn has an obliquity of less than 3º so the worst case scenario means that the moon is 6º inclined with respect to Saturn's equator

That's Jupiter you're thinking of, Saturn's axial tilt is much greater.

Work progress 0.990

29281 Thanks, so we should just save the link you posted earlier and keep refreshing it to see when SE can be bought?  Or will a new store link be published from where SE can be bought directly on or after June 10th? The link we shared will always be the link you use, otherwise there would have bee...

General questions about SpaceEngine

29276 Is every moon in Space Engine in a synchronous orbit with it's planet, like the Earth's moon? Shouldn't some moons have a rotation that is a different speed than their orbit around their planet which makes the planet rise and set? Almost all moons in reality will be tidally locked to their pa...

Yes. This, the slope of the terrain, and the planet's classification.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Specular information is stored in the alpha channel. The correct information should still be there in RGB. If you only want that and want to remove the alpha channel information, then you need to edit the image to get rid of the alpha channel without affecting the RGB channels (I could tell you how ...

Qr Bbpost So we know Steam's policy. In this way, SE will be available on Steam on June 10, 2019 (UTC).

No, that does not determine the release date, it only determines the earliest possible release date, as mentioned in the blog post. It could be released later than June 10, but not sooner.

tidal question and orbital proximity

If your moon is as close to your planet as you initially indicated, its orbital period wouldn't be anywhere near 30 days. More like 20-30 hours.

General questions about SpaceEngine

29060 Keatah, SpaceEngineer said no, the game will no longer be available without Steam. That's not entirely true. 0.990 will initially be released on Steam, but it's entirely possible, even likely, that it will be released on other platforms in the future. And of course, the old versions will alwa...

tidal question and orbital proximity

If the orbit has 0 eccentricity and the moon is tidally locked to the planet (which it would definitely be), then there will be no tidal stress and no ocean tides (there will be a tidal bulge, but it will not move over time). There are only stresses if the orbit has any eccentricity (which all orbit...
