IWillhelm, hi.
While I personally find SpaceEngine very interesting for its goal of going to be as much as realistic as possible, and it's been used in some ESO videos, right now the universe depicted by the engine is static, galaxies don't move, and speaking of standard candles, variable stars are not implemented yet. I mean catalog stars are there, but there's no specific mechanics involving those objects yet. This page viewtopic.php?t=72 is not up-to-date but variable stars are in the list.

[size=100][font=Noto Sans, Arial, sans-serif][size=100][font=Noto Sans, Arial, sans-serif]I’ve noticed when I look at the physical properties of Venus, it states that one Venusian Solar Day is 8.161 years long!!! Given Venus’s 243.018 day retrograde rotation and 224.697 day orbital period, a Solar Day on Venus should be approximately 116.75 Earth days. Is this a bug, or a genuine mistake on behalf of the developers? Just thought I’d bring it up[/font][/size][/font][/size]

[size=100][font=Noto Sans, Arial, sans-serif][size=100][font=Noto Sans, Arial, sans-serif]I've been considering biting the bullet and getting 0.990, mostly for the updated catalogues but also because I've used 0.980 enough that I feel I should toss Romanyuk some cash.
But my graphics card is kinda ancient and seems to be barely better than the absolute minimum system requirements for 0.990 on steam.
I can run 0.980 just fine with decent graphics settings; does anyone know if 0.990 will look mostly the same?[/font][/size][/font][/size]

Hi. You can easily post a question in existing threads covering basically every topic about the program, astronomy and science and then some. Check the forum rules link on top of this page, there are suggested threads where you can start posting.
"Quick reply" below here is exactly what you need to post.
