 I guess it's only floating around 1 meter below surface. ...Hey it's David! Hi Dave!

Anyway it's impressive.

Fine, but I asked for the ships since those are stock items in the engine. Even tho, the astronaut does give some perspective.

Wonderful. Now we need some procedural rocks for more realism and better visual.
If we long to believe that the stars rise and set for us, that we are the reason there is a Universe, does science do us a disservice in deflating our conceits?

Not before shadows, I hope. Procedural rocks and stuff without casting shadows would look worse than these ground textures do, I think.

Agreed. In terms of detail level, the next step after detail textures should be shadows cast by objects including terrain (hopefully with a unified system that does both terrain self-shadowing and everything else), which would make the views from SE even more spectacular. That said, the detail level with these new textures is already very very impressive.
Also, I'm curious to know if it is possible to use modded textures that are higher-res than the stock ones, like those Skyrim "ultra HD 4k" texture packs which replace lower-res textures.
Born too early to explore space... but just in time for Space Engine!

Generation of procedural star/cluster/nebula/galaxy locations and the generation of planetary systems are multi-threaded, and will use as many threads as you have (I have 16 threads and SE uses all of them). Most other things are single-threaded. So to get the most out of SE you need a CPU that has both good single-thread performance and many threads. Intel Core i7 and AMD Ryzen 5 and 7 would perform very well with SE, though I never noticed any slowdowns when using my old Phenom II X6 1090T.

Let nobody forget that to this day I am playing SE on an Intel Core i7-3520m laptop cpu with HD 4000 integrated graphics from 2013 with no serious performance issues whatsoever.
So trust me: whatever computer you have, unless it's truly ancient, will run SE just fine!

(And mad props to SpaceEngineer for making it that way)

This is looking incredible, can't wait. Is this for reference or will we actually be able to walk around planets?

The astronaut picture is just for reference.

This is truly looking amazing! The game is getting so detailed, and almost any computer can run this! Thanks! Will 3D accretion disks be added in the future?

Yes. When the volumetric nebulas be added, the proplanetary disk and black hole accretion disk will be added.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
