Wow, those are some great black holes. Mine just look like blobs. I really ought to update my graphics card.
Bananas are eggcellent.

That is the accretion disk of a black hole peaking through the clouds of a Titan planet. :)

If I had to guess it would be another accretion disk, this time seen through the clouds of a planet.

EDIT: Whoops, didn't seen it was already answered lol

Very cool.  And nice landscapes, PlutonianEmpire.  The magenta colors are stunning. :)

I adjust everything.  I change stars, thermals, exposure, LOD, though in the case of the pictures of Mars or other planets I just do LOD 2 and use auto exposure.

There is an auto exposure, but it rarely gives the best image quality.

Doc is there anyway you could just attach your config files and I could replace mine with them? I have the new graphics card now with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory.

Source of the post what kind of graphics memory usage are you seeing with your card (I assume you use a program like EVGA Precision, which is what I have, as well as MSI Afterburner.)  How often do you get over 2 GB VRAM usage at 1080 P resolution or over 95% graphics card usage?

I play in a 1500x850 windows so I can do other things while running SE, so I don't really use my card much.  When I take screens in 1080 I get around 90% use with my graphical settings and around 3GBs in VRAM use, SE seems to offload to system RAM no matter what.
In 4k resolution I can push 100% utilization and around 4 to 5GBs of VRAM use, though with a ton of ships spawned I have pushed 9GBs and crashed shortly after.

You have a multimon set up too, Doc? Your card doesn't heat up past the 80-85C range does it?  As long as it doesn't do that, the 90% or higher gpu usage rate isn't harmful to the longterm health of the card?  I use SE in a 1024x768 window and get around 98% usage and temps between 80-85C.  What kind of usage, gpu temp and gpu memory usage do you get in window mode?

A combination of ReShade and custom planets. :)
