Can my PC run Space Engine?

That doesn't make sense though.  It was slower loading on the 1080 compared to the 980 which has 8Gb even though it was faster with response and frame rate and had at times spare VRAM which also showed the same slow loading. That was my question, why is would be slower on a much faster PC? Eg same s...

Can my PC run Space Engine?

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this but it does relate to PC hardware and running SE. I just had been doing some tests on my nephew's PC to get an idea on requirements over my own slower PC for my upgrade. I just want to know what actually limits the terrain and texture loading speeds if...

These spiky mountains look like they peak through green fog but rather are some acid looking ocean.

Work progress 0.9.9.0

I mean the current version knowing well 0.9.9.0 will be much better. Performance is subjective and relative really.  Technically 980 was a mid range GPU (GM204) when new, it's how nvidia market their SKUs now to get more profit. It's decent for SE at default to high settings, but on the highest poss...

Work progress 0.9.9.0

Will be so happy once I upgrade to something high end so I can enjoy SE in all it's glory. My dream too. Even more so for myself after I started playing around with LOD 2 setting. I can tell you now that on many mountainous terrain is it a substantial difference in visuals but it is very VRAM inten...

Work progress 0.9.9.0

Agreed.  Mine would fall into the med spec and somewhat higher on the GPU but my biggest limitation is VRAM at the moment for higher quality settings, it works but it's not very happy.  I have always built PCs on the higher end and push all software and game to max settings except resolution. My las...

I found this planet which seems to have some minerals in the exposed rock and there is many sites on it with the same fluoro coloured stuff.

Work progress 0.9.9.0

I think he is just asking for visual comparison from 0.9.9.0 to the current version. Desert planets don't have as much visual diversity from what I have seen compared to terra and alike so it's hard to tell what changes there are. The obvious one I notice is the close range textures and lighting loo...

Work progress 0.9.9.0

AMD has glitchy software. I am stick on 2017 driver, because new drivers causing stuttering of the whole system every few seconds. And this is very old problem, users reporting it during years, and it is still not solved by AMD. But yes, prices for AMD are much better. If you not going to buy a new...

Work progress 0.9.9.0

AMD CPU and GPU are normally the most compatible Same goes with nvidia and intel CPUs.  The biggest issue is nvidia with AMD ryzen, under certain games and apps the performance can drop a lot. It's an nvidia driver issue and generally known across the community. I don't know of AMD GPU and intel CPU...

Work progress 0.9.9.0

Could be a driver hardware issue. I know nvidia cards with AMD CPUs causes these sorts of issues for CPU performance. Or it can be AMD cards not liking the intel CPU, chipset drivers, OS scheduler etc.. I doubt it's win 7, there is far more issues reported with win 10 actually, especially with AMD h...

Work progress 0.9.9.0

Thanks for the reply Space Engineer.  I don't know what the new Quadros are like driver wise but the old ones can easily be soft modded to use the Geforce drivers. I have an Quadro FX 4000 in my old retro gaming PC which I run as a 6800 Ultra. It overclocks insanely high too, in fact I got speeds eq...

Work progress 0.9.9.0

Space Engineer I have a few questions regarding GPUs and future updates of SE, related to availability of model from AMD and nvidia. One of the main things I want to know as I plan to upgrade my PC to something high end later in the year or early next year is how will VRAM impact performance when ev...

Planets with potentially breathable atmospheres

Nice find.


I found this chart and going by that it looks breathable.
