Too bad, I could watch live at 15:30 UTC (that's 17:30 for me), so I will watch the replay :(.

Yeah, that's why I wanted to stream early, so people in Europe and western Asia could enjoy the stream, but circumstances forced a delay.

SpaceEngine F.A.Q.

8391 And is it possible to implement this increased size, i mean does the engine have a limit to the size of the hypersphere? There may be a limit, but I'm sure it's MUCH larger than the current implemented size. I'm not a programmer and I didn't write the engine, so I don't know the details of how...

SpaceEngine F.A.Q.

8365 So...given enough time, we should be able to see ourselves in every direction we look, almost like an eerie backdrop because in every direction we look, light has traveled around the hypersphere from ourselves back to ourselves. (Emphasis on given enough time) This is impossible, due to the ex...

SpaceEngine F.A.Q.

8359 still can he increase the actual size of the hypersphere to be similar to the actual observable universe? I don't see why not. 8360 Unless...light curves with it Of course it does, just as roads and cloud formations curve along the surface of the Earth. The curvature is caused by the mass of t...

SpaceEngine F.A.Q.

The shape of the universe might not be a cube anymore, he has previously talked about a 4D shape, like a hypersphere or hypertorus. This would result in the user being able to fly in one direction and eventually return to their starting point without ever reaching an edge.

I wonder if in the final version of SE the size of the physical universe will be larger than 10x10x10 gigaparsecs.

The plan is for it to be unlimited. Not necessarily infinite, but definitely unbounded.

HarbingerDawn's 0.990 Streams

Hi everyone! As some of you already know, I've been doing weekly streams of the latest beta version of SE on my Youtube channel . I decided to make a thread about them so that 1) people can better give feedback about them and make suggestions for what they'd like to see, and 2) to make it easier to ...

When spacecraft are placed into an orbit by a script, will it be possible to pilot the spacecraft out of orbit?

No, spacecraft placed in catalog scripts are like planets, they are static objects that cannot be controlled.

SpaceEngine F.A.Q.

8285 i am thinking it may be until like October or something because of the obstacles.... It will take MUCH longer than that. As for how long exactly, this is impossible to guess. But it will almost certainly be in the range of 1 to 3 years. It depends on how soon additional programmers can be brou...

A Note About Eventual Mac Compatibility

8283 My Mac is able to run Minecraft (on a typical day) at ~245 FPS (though on good days it's closer to 300) That's not very useful information without knowing what settings are used, and at what resolution... at (approximately) default settings, I run vanilla Minecraft at 450 fps (when at the surf...
