Looks like your current system is working just fine. :)

Only just barely, I have to close all background tasks and non essential services down to avoid locking up the PC, which happens 100% of the time if I don't, even then the max I get is 30fps with stutter if the terrain does finish loading which is not often, else it loads forever and requires a restart of the program.  The whole experience with this PC running SE is *** the least to say.  Not even Vram, not enough Ram, not enough GPU power or CPU power. Basically the whole lot need to be replaced (except the sound card, I <3 my Xonar phoebus)

Well if you were actually there you'd be looking at the scene either through a window, a visor, or just with your eye (very briefly) and I'm pretty sure all of those would have some degree of light scattering - so lens flare is unavoidable really.

Nope. I do not see a lens flare in my daily life. If you do, you might want to see a doctor about that.
If you like lens flares, go ahead and use them. Makes no difference to me.

And you can do what you like in your SE too, of course - but you're wrong. If you don't see lens flare with your eyes then I'm afraid you're the one who needs to see a doctor - human eyes have lenses and it's always a side effect of that. 

Read this paper if you don't believe me: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/ ... lGlare.pdf

Did not read the whole paper yet, but seems to specify glare, and not lens flares. You will note in my settings posted above that "diffraction spikes" in on, which is the closest thing to glare in 980.

The actual lens flares in SE are a simulation of the diffraction and reflection of light in multi-element lenses. I'm rather primitive, and only have one lens in each of my eyes.

And like you said, you are free to use them or not, makes no difference to me.

Abner those images were amazing, which globular cluster/coordinate is that?

Well, thanks again. Currently flying around in the Omega Centauri cluster. NGC 5139, I do believe.

Wow can you give me the coordinates for that planet?  It has my favorite colors :-)  That's in 0.980 right?  Can you run both versions at the same time?

Also what are your settings in the Nvidia Control Panel?   My differences from default are 75% for digital vibrance for stills and video and a High DR setting for video.

Thanks again. I'll see if I saved/named that location. I may not have (and there's a lot of systems in the Omega Centauri cluster!) :o I'll come back and post if I can find it.

Also, take note that that particular pic was taken on the night side with the exposure cranked up.

Edit: Oh, and yes, that was in 980. I do occasionally run 990, but I don't think I could run them both together satisfactorily. Also, my second monitor is still being driven by the onboard Intel video chip (so that my main monitor gets all the Nvidia memory and processing), and that experience even in 980 is... shall we say, somewhat less than spectacular.

I've no idea what my Nvidia control panel settings are. No doubt all the default settings. :)  But what you do in the Nvidia CP should not affect any actual screenshot file, just the way it is shown to you on your monitor. So my posted pic above may look different on your monitor than on mine. Likewise, any pic you post here will look different to me simply because my monitor and driver settings are different than yours. It's a personal preference, one should make their system look the way they like it.

Edit 2: I think I may have found the right world, but not sure of the exact location nor time. And I think my exposure may have been a little higher in the previous pic above. But below we have:

Mirrobelle / RSC 8474-5122-3-263-1 4.2

Latitude and longitude of the first pic below: 42°14'55"62 / 160°11'48"67  at an altitude of 5.92 km above the surface.

RSC 8474-5122-3-263-1 4.2.jpg


Date and time plus exposure settings visible in the above pic.

scr02808.jpg


Close enough?

Edit 3: This world is a moon of a gas giant. I think it is possible that in the first pic (post #2644) I may have been in a location with said gas giant above the horizon providing some light.

Edit 4: You know, the more I look at this, the more I think it is not the same world as in post #2644. The Milky Way looks the same, but the other nearby stars in the cluster are not in the same places. There are a lot of stars in that cluster, I'm not sure I'll be able to find it again.

A-L-E-X, you may like this one, too.

In the pic below I've included information on where and when to find it. If you set the clock a few minutes before the time indicated, you can watch the shadow move overhead.

Hey I have a question. How do you post images in big size on the SE Forum?
