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...

29198 Hold up, the DLCs just popped up, are the HD textures supposed to be separate DLCs for each planet? Yes, this allows you to download only the ones you want, so you don't need to wait for 45 GB worth of files to download if you don't want them all. The DLCs are free, by the way, not paid, if t...

Work progress 0.990

29167 isn't this logical? I mean if an application supports a feature where the feature itself has a minimal requirement higher than that of the application, shouldn't the final requirements cover both? If it's a feature that only a very small percentage of the userbase will ever use, or could even...

29107 Any information regarding compatibility with Proton? Would like to hear more about this as a non-Windows user. As far as I know no one has tested it. But the few times in the past that I tried running SE using Wine, it always worked perfectly, so there's a good chance that it would. I'd have ...

Mostly like they did before. The textures for most worlds aren't much higher (or any higher) in resolution than in the past. If they were, they would require hundreds of gigabytes at least, which is just impractical.

29157 Also I'd like to see some more of the cosmic webb that's easier to see now in 0.990, the screenshots are nice but it's easier to discern three-dimensional depth in space engine when you're moving as opposed to being stationary ( at least when you're in space) I did that here , you can check i...

Light pollution

29090 Considering that we're able to create paint of any colour easily, it would be surprising if it isn't possible also to produce a finish for satellite that absorb visible light, but reflect infrared light.  That is, to "paint" satellites in pure infrared. The Sun radiates most strongl...
