Hello everyone. Wumbowolf here. Some of you might already know me from the Discord, but for those who don't, it's nice to finally join the forums. Been lurking for far too long. I hope to see this community grow as the program evolves over time. My goal here is to add something of value to the program someday.

Hello everyone,

I'm playing around with space engine since many years and must have spent an equal amount of time crawling through the mods and discussion topics.
Now I will become a little more active in the forum (also to share addons I am working on).
Profound bow to SpaceEngineer, for this incredible and awesome simulation and the beautiful evolution of it over time. And of course to all the active community, all the amazing addons and the threads about astronomy and the space journeys and beautiful SE cinematics on YT.

Curious, where this will be going in the future. I hope it never ends

Hi All, I am a newbie with SE. Today I installed it and it looks like a fantastic program. I have a question. When I search for any planet (like earth) and press [G], it shows the movement through space and "finds" the earth BUT earth is not rendered. I cannot see it or any other planet or asteroid. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks!

You probably have a non-SpaceEngine compatible graphics card. Probably an Intel HD 2000 or Intel HD 3000. 
Some computers have a second graphics card. If this is the case with you, use this graphics card for SpaceEngine.

Hi All,

Although I'm new here, I use SE since years, what shows that I am quite fond of it and is my favorite astronomy software to date (though I used Celestia and Stellarium since their early days for quite some time).

As for my knowledge, I barely qualify as an amateur astronomer (though I do own an entry-level Celestron 70AZ telescope and go for Moon, planet and brighter Messier object hunting from time to time).

I am also a metalhead - my forum name is a reference to the song "The Observer" (i.e. Galileo Galilei), made by the German symphonic death metal band Haggard -, but I appreciate any "good" music in general.

It is nice to be part of the community!

Hello there!

Welcome to the SE forum. You sound very much like me when I first joined - having previously used SE and other astronomy programs for years while headbanging to some good metal strings  8-).
