Pretty bad - no procedural terrain, just a really low-res .jpeg used for the whole planet

So I decided to check out the first public release of SpaceEngine (0.74) and found this neat little planet

Was experimenting in Photoshop with a potential new profile picture, what do y'all think?

The first version of SpaceEngine I ever played was 0.972 and it had a lot of interesting little oddities
scr00000.jpg
Pluto and Charon didn't have full maps so they were procedurally generated

scr00002.jpg
Titan had blue oceans on its equator, not its poles

scr00001.jpg
Same thing for Ceres

scr00003.jpg
Haumea was just an oblate spheroid (no red spot either)

scr00004.jpg
The Sun is larger than the Sun, and hotter too (5860 K vs 5778 K)

scr00005.jpg
Ida's moon Dactyl is ridiculously hot and bright!

And as a side note, when making a planetary system, you can use the System Chart to see if everything has accurate properties, such as temperature, density, and system architecture.

Took this picture a few minutes before I found out that Deimos' density was broken

Currently in SpaceEngine, Mars' moon Deimos has a density of 16.386 g/cm3. On closer inspection, this appears to be an error with the asteroid's mass.

I have created a small fix to decrease its mass and bring its density closer to it's real value.

Yes, but if you look at the height data in the US2 image, the colour of the Great Lakes in the height data on the top-right is roughly the same colour as the ocean.

scr00077.jpg For the new upcoming Earth map, I would like to point out that the current Earth map still has the Great Lakes drained. I have a suggestion to fix this issue, simply adjust the height map until the shore matches the sea level 20210326115222_1.jpg Other games like Universe Sandbox have ...

Strange sightings

So I was exploring a supermassive black hole system at the centre of a galaxy and found this. scr00074.jpg It's an Orange Dwarf star that orbits a black hole that is nearly 300 AU in diameter. scr00075.jpg As you can see the black hole outshines the small star massively, and turning down the exposur...
