The dust rings of Saturn frequently surprise me, even though I know they're there! So I'm really glad we'll be seeing them on procedural planets too. It adds a certain thrill to exploration when you find something where you previously thought there was nothing. Great job, Space Engineer!

Doesn't look so natural, make the ring less saturated and with more of "out-in" gradient and more a lil' bit bigger.

Doesn't Enceladus cause Saturn's E ring?

The only reference we have of these types of rings is Saturn, but it shouldn't be the standard "ghost" ring

I am talking about a less strong ring, a more gentle type of gradient out-in.

Every screenshot I see makes me more and more hyped for this release. Incredible work!

Agreed, however the latest UI skin by SpaceEngineer for 0.981 is certainly a huge step in the right direction.

Question: SpaceEngineer, are you planning on having the volumetric system and objects (nebulae, etc) in a finished order (of some functioning degree) before releasing this update?

Yes, we with Duke are working on procedural raymarched nebulae. Galaxies, clouds etc probably will be delayed to 0.982.

Does this mean that nebula models will be procedural, so that all nebulae are unique?

When spacecraft are placed into an orbit by a script, will it be possible to pilot the spacecraft out of orbit?

That's already possible, unless the spacecraft is specifically set to not be pilotable in the script.
