See the discussion I had last year in the Science and Astronomy board.

That's just for radiation, not gas emission.

General 0.990 Discussion

In 0.990, is it possible for astrophysical jets to be non-perpendicular to the accretion disc because the magnetic axis isn't aligned to the rotation axis? Like this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GI-TfRqy8Ts These types of jets don't depend on the magnetic field. It's matter forced up or down fr...

Hi tRetro-Visor, is this spaceship mod available to download? This one is really beautiful like that in Avatar.

I ported the ship directly into 0.990, so it's not compatible with 0980. I'll release it when 0.990 is out, which supposedly it's going to be soon

Latest news says it will be

Why addons should become paid? This have no sense. Also, many addons uses models/design which a re copyrighted, so making them paid impossible anyway.

This brings to mind the debacle with skyrim paid mods.

Yeah, that was a dumpster fire.

28790 I remember a time when the planet Bloop orbited Rigil Kentaurus (Alpha Centauri) B, before being replaced with a planet candidate that, to my knowledge, was never confirmed. I miss Bloop. lol yes, I must restore it, maybe in the Avatar addon :) Please do, that'd be amazing! And quite nostalgi...

Qr Bbpost Actually, if you say so much, you might as well publish it in a steam store now.

We're going to as soon as we can. We have to wait for Valve to review and approve it for publication.

Does Valve give progress updates to you or do they stay quiet about it?

Rodrigos Terrain & Clouds Mod

8939 I have an idea, I think you should update this or make a mod to have volumetric/3d clouds! It is simply impossible. Could it be possible just by wrapping the code for nebula around a given planet, setting height perimeters and limits and letting the code do the rest, or am I talking rubbish?

28838 There's a candidate planet that may be close to confirmation. It's a 1.1±0.1 Earth-radius planet in a 365.4 day orbit around a 0.97 solar-radius sun. If it is confirmed, it would be the _first_ true Earth-analogue. Discovered by Kepler but no ID yet, maybe will be Kepler-16nn. Located at 2MAS...

Qr Bbpost I'm guessing that's a cloud bump map too?

Yes. But somehow the bumpmap in SE 0.980 does not work as it should.
In SE 0.990 it works better:

I guess that in 0.980 bumpmaps are rather... Dicey.

More random planets, I think it is very close to done as just about every planet has natural tones and there is a wide range of variation including variations within planets with life. Few weeks well spent, planets now look like planets and not cartoons Couple of imgur galleries https://imgur.com/a...
