[quote="Propulsion Disk"][quote="Circles [GD]"]I am new to SpaceEngine. It is just absolutely amazing, and I love every aspect of it. It's just that I am running through several problems.. when I look at several other videos made with this Engine, I see fantastic sightings, large canyons and mountains, rivers, craters, hurricanes, tremendous views as well as many other amazing textures. But unfortunately, my laptop doesn't display such. Is there anything that I can do to apply these materials into the Engine without having to edit planets? I was trying to play around with the graphics and test certain things out, including opening the console itself and typing "set landlod 2". It worked a bit, but barely anything has happened, just some small mountain bumps. Of course I am already happy with what I have, but if supposedly "better" textures exist, I am just curious how come its just myself who doesn't have those advantages. I have been spending days and hours trying to figure this out, and I have even been cutting through my school time and wasn't studying for my finals just so I could hopefully figure this out, but I guess it didn't happen. I have spoken about this with some other developers, and they have mentioned that my case in particular is strange. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Okay I've got a few questions for you.
What videos were you watching?
What planet(s) are you on?
And if you answer what I think you'll answer, then.
You're watching a video of 0.9.9.0.
And you're on one of the solar system planets.
And if you want better textures for said planets then go here.
well, several. Here are some of the many:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ve0Bpmx8Fk0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uRJgYOgf8xc
I also saw some videos that involved animations, such as exploding nebulae, or a magnificent view of a planet with a massive hurricane. I'm not quite sure which update those are from anyways. I understand that there aren't that much textures in our Solar System, maybe Vladimir is trying to get a more realistic view of certain parts of the planets to have the textures exact, who knows? It is alright either way. I even end up going into random Galaxies and random Solar Systems, but still, I just get plain terrain (including the titans that I visit, the desert-like planets, and more)

and then my graphicshttps://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ ... apture.PNG
afterwards I changed my loading speed to 25
it loaded a bit better, but I know this wasn't the best that it could gethttps://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ ... _15_PM.png
when I arrived at a desert-like planet, there were barely any features involvedhttps://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ ... _36_PM.png
I have explored several other planets randomly, and it was nothing like what showed up in those videos.
I did see some 0.9.9.0 trailers, and I know that those updates haven't came yet. I was trying to refer to the present update.
and besides, thank you for that link
