General suggestions for SpaceEngine

Could we have a RotationOffset for Clouds tags because if we edit the RotationOffset of the planet, clouds layers don't follow the surface layer and for my mods is problematic because I create the texture of the clouds with paint.NET for that the cloud is precisely at this point and in Space Engine, it is unpacked. The only way for now would be that I change the RotationOffset of the planet but it would be more "synchronized" with the UTC time of the Earth (because in my case, the UTC time of the planet follows Earth's also has a 24-hour sidereal day).

PS : I don't know if it is a bug or is normal so I post this suggestion.

I would like to see more diversity in irregular galactic models as seen in Krexitt's galaxy mod. (Would be using it but it causes crashes for me) But I am also aware that this probably wont happen until galaxies are procedurally generated.

I noticed a dull reflection of the sun on ice moons like Miranda. These moons have so much terrain... how would you get a reflection like that? The light should be scattered.

Beautiful sim though

Because they're made of ice, one of the most reflective materials in nature.

Sure... if the surface is smooth. I'm talking about moons with rough terrain though.

How about a planet generator? You specify the parameters and create the world you want. Would be fantastic for a future game similar to Spore's Galactic Adventures.

How is that any different from the current way to mod planets?

Because you could generate as many as you wanted and select the one you like best, it would be easier to avoid unrealistic designs and the terrain/continents would be generated according to your wishes.

Doesn't the music just need to be in .ogg format and added in the context file?

yes, but it is necessary to convert the file to .ogg, and this is complicated

it depends on the tools you have, just downloaded this and for a batch conversion it took me literally four mouse clicks.

Ogg Vorbis is better than MP3 and license-free. Recently there was a change in licensing conditions for MP3, but I guess a fee is probably due anyway for using it in a game.

Dawn and dusk colors ought to have much larger areas! I can see blue skies on Mars, but only when the Sun is juuust peeking over the horizon (which according to pictures, isn't accurate). Earth is much better though.

Could we ever see Centaurs in SpaceEngine? I want to turn Nessus into the jungle it is in Destiny 2.

I have no idea if this was already suggested or even possible but wouldn't it be cool to have cave systems throughout some planets? Gives that extra variety.

Welcome to the forum.
Your suggestion is in the TODO list of the developer as "Holes in the surface (caves, mines)". This means is in the plans for a future SpaceEngien release.
You can read the whole list here.

Please, when asking for a new feature first take a moment to read the TODO list and second do a search. It is important to keep the forum clean and not full of similar suggestions. On the other side if you think this feature is important for a more in depth discussion consider making a new thread.

Oh sorry! I never knew that here was a TODO list.
