Universe Sandbox 2 to SE File Converter NEW

Tried running it and it's missing vcruntime140d.dll, msvcp140d.dll, vcruntime140_1d.dll and ucrtbased.dll. Why am I getting these problems? An update from Visual Studio must have changed some settings and the .exe wasn't compiled with the proper .dll files included. I recompiled and hopefully have ...

Universe Sandbox 2 to SE File Converter NEW

I like how you actually put the file you want converting into a folder and press a button and it comes out of the other end. Very skeuomorphic, lol. A bit of advice, binary orbits break because the orbit is calculated relative to the star and not the barycenter. The orbits wobble to make the planets...

Space Engine - Archive Project

I see there's still a bit of a pointless intro and that navigating help still gets you confused if you're not fixating on the top panel.

1. Please look at a game's description before hitting the purchase button
2. Please stay on-topic.

Universe Sandbox 2 to Space Engine File Conversion (Suggestion)

32789 it was very off-putting for you to join a discussion about file conversion with your opinions about how fun the game is compared to SE. That wasn't the purpose of this thread, so perhaps we can continue this conversation in an off-topic forum, if you want. I agree wholeheartedly. Let's make s...

Universe Sandbox 2 to Space Engine File Conversion (Suggestion)

32785 Well, to be more specific how complete is it in terms of simulating the entire known universe and being up to date with exoplanetary data?  I haven't tried it in a pretty long while. You've completely missed the point of US2. It's not a planetarium, it's a sandbox. Is Kerbal Space Program not...

Universe Sandbox 2 to Space Engine File Conversion (Suggestion)

Boring isn't a factor when it comes to how complete a game is. Agreed. What one considers boring another may not and so really can't be considered for that. I have over 2,000 hours in US2, so obviously I don't think it's boring. In what ways do you find it to be better than SE?  I might get it sinc...

Lighting mechanism.

How many times do we have to repeat "raise the ambient lighting setting"?

Ambient lighting makes things too flat as it kinda overrides shading. We just want a key that lights up a planet with the same amount of light 1au from the sun.

Universe Sandbox 2 to Space Engine File Conversion (Suggestion)

Between yesterday and today, I laid the groundwork for code that will be useful when/if that update is ever released. If you're interested, you can check it out here:  https://github.com/SethFusion/US2-to-SE-Converter/releases The output it creates isn't actually useful to Space Engine yet, because...

Universe Sandbox 2 to Space Engine File Conversion (Suggestion)

A problem: binary planets work in US2 because the planets pull on each other instead of orbiting a barycenter. SE does the latter because it doesn't simulate gravity between planets. Planets would fly apart unless you could find a way to get the planets to orbit a manually inserted barycenter (selec...

32619 If I could see a US2 simulation file and study it I could tell if it's possible or not  32622 Edit: You've inspired me to buy US2. For some reason unknown to me, I just never thought about getting it. The last time I looked at development must have been years ago, but it looks incredible now....
