Guys, as is posted in the FAQ, and as has been said about five-thousand times, there is no release date, and there never will be, at least not for this version. The first anyone will know of a release date will be coming to the site and finding out that it's been released. So anyone who says "0.9.9.0 is coming out in ____" is making it up.

Do Carbonia, Ferria and Aquaria planets look any different from Terra planets?

I think those can be a sub-class of Terra or Super Terra etc. Terra is basically just a rocky planet like Venus Earth and Mars.

I'll have to wait and see.

The appearance of different planets has not been finalized yet, but carbonias, ferrias, and terras should all look pretty much the same.

Well that's kinda disappointing. Oh well.

The objective of SE is realism. Objects like that wouldn't look significantly different from each other except in extreme cases.

Yet we haven't even seen if carbon planets even exist.

Carbonias are just planets with a relatively high ratio of carbon to oxygen in their chemical composition. This means that their rocks will contain more carbonates and carbides than on a planet like Earth, and will also likely have higher concentrations of carbon-based volatiles than Earth.

There might be subtle differences in planets with varying chemical compositions but the biggest factor in the appearance of a planet, more specifically its coloration, is the type of light its host star is emitting. This will most likely be especially true with planets covered with life as vegetation will evolve to absorb as much sunlight as possible and the typical color most vegetation takes on will vary depending on star type. I know that most vegetation on Earth being green is a response to the color of light from our sun, although I forget the exact mechanisms why. I think theorists have an idea for what a living world might look like from space for every known star type.

Is "Telluric" a consideration to describe Terra like planets and the various rocky subtypes (Terra, Carbonia, Ferria, Oceania)

Not necessarily true, otherwise we wouldn't have green plants on Earth. The Sun radiates most strongly in the green part of the spectrum, so reflecting more green light than anything else wouldn't make any sense, yet that's what happens. If it was just about absorbing as much light as possible, and if that was an evolutionary inevitability, then all plants would be black. The reality is far more complex.

Are there any planned streams to show off the current progress of SE? Also, I'm sure it's been asked before but I can't find it anywhere, but will 0.9.9 have a steam release?
