I'm just curious for what impact this is going to have on finding earth-like planets, as that's what I do myself on space engine

Great job!!

so am I.
Spaceengineer have you investigated and can you give us an approximation of how rare are planets with breathable atmosphere?

Haven't been this excited since pre-No Man's Sky, though in this case I can be sure it will actually live up to personal hype. I can't wait to find some of these exotic terras with life and strange non-water oceans and pretend what that life may be like on one of its counterparts in the real universe. I can't wait to get lost in this.

When I was a child I would, in my dejection, not dare dream of ever seeing the stars up close, now thanks to you Romanyuk, I can without even having to leave my room. I can never thank you enough for Space Engine.

Maybe in some future edition we can see tweaking the Drake equation added to the program so each user can tweak the SE universe on their own to have as many "habitable" worlds as they think is likely or possible.

Earth-like planets will be exceedingly rare due to this new algorithm.

Vladimir, any idea how much this will be when its released to steam?

But is this how it really is?  From what we read in science news stories earth-like planets are being found right and left! (and multiple ones in the same solar system!)

Physically Earth-like ≠ habitable

Is the ESI index for habitability or for being earth-like?

ESI = Earth Similarity Index. It has nothing to do with habitability, actually.

Cosmic dreams, sounds like we think a lot alike. I am indeed grateful to the creator of this wonder, this marvel of unbound exploration, which I had long dreaded of as a child.   Before my eyes would widen to see the few pieces of art concerning extraterrestrial worlds. Now those planets surfaces match those depictions in in the complexity of detail variations, and the and the quality of the procedural formulas themselves is as if a painter had created them .

*It is supposed to say "long dreamed of", it must have auto "corrected" and made my post sound contradicting.

But habitability is only based on our experiences correct?  Exotic organisms might not be like anything like we are aware of, so I don't believe habitability can be judged with a sample size of 1.

"Earth-like" in news stories on exoplanets only means that the planets have near-earth diameters (usually, since the most prolific method of detection is transits and those detect diameters; much more rarely, masses are also known) and theoretical temperatures. Nothing else. The vast majority of those planets should be nothing like the Earth. To illustrate it, an ET watching our Solar System from afar would deem not only the Earth but also Venus and Mars Earth-like (Mars only marginally so). Yet, Mars is a cold lifeless desert and Venus is a superhot lifeless greenhouse of a desert.
