Work progress - 0.9.8.1

Source of the post The easiest way to improve the shapes of Magellanic Clouds is to make their textures cubemapped instead of cylindrical mapped. We would need to generate some fake "side views", or borrow them from photos of other irregular galaxies. I've been considering making a mod like that.

I would really like a mod like that. Also, and given the fact that it's a mod, it would also be interesting to include the Mini Magellanic Cloud, suggested by astrophysicists D. S. Mathewson, V. L. Ford and N. Visvanathan.

Love coming back here every few days to see what new features to play with in SE. I am impressed with the new lens flare system. Looks amazing, especially lit objects. Something rarely seen in top price titles.

Continue developing post-effect shaders. First, simple color enhancement. Will be configurable.

Next, effect called pseudo lens flare.

Flares inherits the shape of the light source.

Any light source now can generate flares, even brightly illuminated object.

Effect is fully integrated into the engine: added preset config files similar to those for old lens flares, added drop-down box to the graphics settings menu, sliders to adjust effect brightness. It is not possible to assign a custom texture to the lens ghosts, because they are actually a blurred frame image, sampled several times. So modding ability of this effect is minimal. You can change the dirty lens texture, "star rays" texture, radial colouring texture, and number and intensity of ghosts.

I don't know why but those lens flares really bother me...
Probably has to do with the shape and that there's no diffraction spikes.

Maybe you can just close those lens flares effects.

And maybe these lens flares effects can be added in the future?  :D

And 0.9.8.1 is a "minor update", in that increases version number by 0.0.0.1. If this is a minor update, i can't wait to see a major update (I have only played 0.9.8.0).
Also, i know there isn't an release date, but when do you expect 0.9.8.1 to come out? Like, approximately in a month, or  approximately in a year? :)

It will be released when he feels like it. Because he's SpaceEngineer, and that's how he rolls! ;)

It is most likely to be a major update, but 0.9.9 sounds too close to 1.0 so I don't know what SpaceEngineer is planning to do.

I wonder if there would be a version number like "0.9.8.1.1"

Most likely in Idunnouary, but that's just my guess

Not necessarily, there can perfectly be a 0.9.10, 0.9.11, and so on.

Just like what you said, 0.9.9 is too close to the complete version, so the possibility of 0.9.9 being released in the near future is probably very small, about two years later, I guess.......

Of course but SpaceEngineer never did that so I doubt this will be the case... Anyway let's stop speculate and wait for a response from SpaceEngineer  ;)

Something looks like spiral galaxy (or protoplanetary disk?):

I just can't imagine the potential and wonder how the pillars of creation and horsehead nebula could look with this update.
