Don't really know where else to put this, so its going here. Sorry if there's already a thread for it, I did search but couldn't find anything.

I've been using SpaceEngine for a while now, first on version 0.9.8 since 2017 and upgrading to 0.9.9 in December last year. I found a tonne of interesting stuff in 0.9.8, but obviously all the procedural objects are completely different in the new version, so I've just been using both. But as I experimented with what I could do on 0.9.9 I realised there were a load of features I'd love to have on 0.9.8, primarily the ability to export topographic maps of planets.

Is it possible to export topographic maps of procedural planets generated in 0.9.8 like you can do in 0.9.9? If not, is there a patch to allow me to do this? At the very least is there a tool that allows me to import system saves from 0.9.8, even if they do lose the topography, so I can export the data for a version of these planets?

As I say I have a load of stuff that I found ages ago on 0.9.8 that I would love to have maps of. If anyone could help me out or point me in the right direction then that'd be a huge help.

Greetings all, 

I'm a new user of SpaceEngine, and want to explore our local universe, as 
well as create SciFi scenes. 

Since the '80s I've enjoyed using Bryce, Hexagon, Carrara, VUE, C4D, Blender, ZBrush
to create SciFi scenes & animations, and want to integrate them with SpaceEngine.

A few sample scenes

Live long & prosper.  ;)

Hello everyone,

I have recently downloaded Space Engine and to explore all reaches of our known universe within game. I really enjoy Space games such as Elite Dangerous even though i am taking a break from it currently. I am glad to be part of this community and sharing my screenshots and ideas with you all.
Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.

Sam D. Jones here,

Been using Space Engine for a few months now.  Exploring in it is fun, but I got it mainly to serve as a replacement for Celestia in bringing fictional star systems to life.  The program is gorgeous.

Hi! I've had Space Engine on another computer a few years ago, and now I have it on this one. I just wish they had wormholes. I also wish I could find some current downloads of Star Trek ships for the latest free version of SE.

Hello! My name is Alex. I am interested in astronomy and science fiction (in particular, space travel). There is a lot of interesting information on this forum which, I hope, will help in the development of my hobby. I want to find guys on the forum with whom I can communicate according to my interests.

Hey I'm Mark! Digital artist from Slovenia.
Been using Space Engine for 5-6 years now. I absolutely adore flying around the universe looking for planets.
Recently I used SE in a music video for my music project The Markness. Trying to make space metal a thing, hehe.

I'm also an aspiring musician for cinematic music and joined this forum because a sort of dream of mine is to get a song into Space Engine one day maybe, I'd consider it a real honor :) 

Hail Sagan :)

That's some very nice work. Do you mind me asking what programs were used?

Thank you! The music software is listed in the description. As for the footage itself, I wouldn't know - this was part of a contest by 8dio where one had to score a pre-made video. My guess is it's stock, since the shots are all over the place, for example the one at 1:24 has a different aspect ration even.

Hi I joined this forum to ask a question.

I noticed the current time of the program is set at the year 2518. Its running off Steam Gaming network. Any idea how to adjust it to present day?

You are using the program in flight simulator mode, wich is supposed to be in that year. Either use Planetarium mode from the main menu, or open the console (tilde key) and use the command TARDIS
