BambusDude's Nebulae 4.5!

Um BambusDude, do I get rid of the entire cache folder or just the nebulae folder? does this keep nebulae that weren't edited?

20959 How do you add that docking ports? I want too In the ship editor (Shift F2) you can add a docking port by clicking on the "edit docking port" button and then choose where you want it to be (I'm pretty sure it has to be a single module though.) But if the spacecraft has been compress...

General questions about SpaceEngine

Whilst controlling a spacecraft and after selecting a target, is it possible to reset target to none somehow? Thanks in advance for any suggestion.

No but if you build your spacecraft far away from an object then there will be no target, and no reference.

Propulsion Disk, wouldn't have an effect at all really.  We're talking 1 atom per cubic centimeter, some cases less, some cases more but there isn't enough for it to be a concern unless you are moving at relativistic velocities.

Thanks Doc!

New Members Introduction Thread

If I select a random star from the screen, I can find information about it (by pressing "I" key), but that information does not include what galaxy the star is in.  How can I find that? What? Do you mean the star browser? Because if you do, then the star you selected will be in the radius...

Would a spacecraft that is aerodynamic move faster? Because if my studies are correct, space mainly has hydrogen gas in it, which means that if a spacecraft was aerodynamic it would move faster sense the hydrogen gas would flow over it, and under it, would it not?

Qr Bbpost I hope that others will also contribute!  This thread should not be just me and FFT.

I would like to talk about a bunch of things about our solar system but it seems I always get things wrong and I don't want to do that here. :(

How do you think we can get to Proxima b?

Does anyone know what the starshot looks like?

20904 It says right here, "atomic particle erosion" in the "protective coating" Wikipedia is not wrong. Maybe it's easy to misinterpret that. When they say atomic particle erosion they are not talking about atoms or subatomic particles been eroded, they are refering to the erosi...

20896 which means electrons get eroded by the things in space I know we said this several times now but I want to emphasize this. If atomic erosion is a strange use of the term "erosion" then electron erosion is just totally wrong. Electrons are elementary particles, they do not erode. If...

How do you think we can get to Proxima b?

20893 I think I would recommend avoiding using the word "erosion" to anything involving atoms, like FFT said.  To apply it to atoms doesn't make much sense and I've never seen it used in the scientific jargon.  Hence my earlier question about what Propulsion Disk was imagining.  All proce...

I just double checked and it's atomic PARTICLE erosion so that means that the electrons are what get eroded.

20871 You're talking about bonds breaking, not atoms being destroyed.  If a photon breaks atomic bonds it is called photodissociation.  It requires photons of sufficient energy.  For example, ultraviolet photons can dissociate ozone (O3) molecules in the atmosphere.Sufficiently energetic photons ca...
