A very PC discussion

Anyone tested vega vs something like a 1080 or Ti on SE?

Just curious if the performance is compatible to get an idea of options on the current and near future releases of cards.

Solar System dynamics discussion thread

I have just been lurking and reading here. Pretty much the same on the contribution. Although I understand and know a lot about the physics I am not good at applying the maths related to it. Good to see the PBS spacetime video linked here.  I have watched all of their videos to date, they go very de...

I do as well as my 4GB 980 seems to run out in many applications including SE.

SE Object Extremes

Very odd system. At first I thought I was seeing a completely flat star but saw it was just a mega bright accretion disk. So the system is a triple system of a white dwarf with disk and 2 brown dwarfs that also have auroras, one brown dwarf has one side tidally locked and roasted by the white dwarf....

system or Vram?

That seemed to do the trick but reducing the brightness.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Version 0.9.8.0e plain version with no mods. I seem to have a consistent crash only when exploring the center of the galaxy NGC 4889 for large black holes, have had no issues at all exploring any other galaxies since I have had SE for the last month or so. First I noticed the star search appears to ...

Work progress 0.9.8.1 = 0.9.9.0

Perhaps the vendors could provide sdk for their upcoming products?  AMD are supposedly bringing about some new consumer cards later in the year based on 7nm process, possibly early next year if it gets delayed. They have already been sampling for a while.  nvidia, as always, no news. But it would be...

General 0.9.9.0 Discussion

I 100% agree on that. The way SE is now it why I love it so much, its purely discovery and simulating and not clouded by other stuff. Only thing I hope that becomes of it is more detail and more ways to extract and present data/facts from the objects in SE. Kind of like reading a junior encyclopedia...

Scanning every star/planet in the SE universe?

I would imagine the search always starts in the outer layers, otherwise if you've reached the 10K limit, it won't matter whether you select a radius of 20ly or 2000ly it would always find the same results closest to the viewer. But I hear you on the other parameters not being exact, I think I've se...

Scanning every star/planet in the SE universe?

That's what I thought at first, but I see this behavior from single Lys up to about 75Ly on average where the 10k is typically reached. Get this a lot when I am physically near a planet previous found but not coming up within the 10k limit, sometime it does though. eg, total stars to scan might be 2...

Scanning every star/planet in the SE universe?

No, I have tested this like 100 times over. What I mean is a larger radius search from the same point always fails to find previous results from a smaller radius in the previous otherwise exact same search. So If I just search a larger radius hoping to find all results I actually miss out on just ab...

Why is Nvidia recommeded over AMD GPU's?

Well it depends on your application. For GPGPU computing its almost impossible to recommend anything but the AMD cards, hence why they are top choice for mining. For best of best top of the line graphics for gaming then the nvidia 1080 and 1080 Ti. I run an AMD FX with a GTX 980, both which are wate...
