A very PC discussion

Oh, I have to add, there are still some caveats to the whole process right now. SE internally will limit the maximum texture resolution, so at some point with absurd resolutions (>16k) you'll start seeing the texture itself becoming blurry rather than the image being pixelated. Essentially it looks ...

A very PC discussion

So let's say my window size is 1080P, can I get everything within that window to be blown up into a 4K or 8K screenshot?  (Sort of like digital zoom but with added detail from within the image that is too small to see in the 1080P window.) Correct. That's how it's meant to work. It's intended to al...

35698 does this selection automatically become available when a video card with enough VRAM is detected? No, but you can manually enter a resolution or use the oversize app to resize the window. Generally when I play SE I have well over 100fps in most cases, but for taking large high resolution ima...

Astrophotography

So, I figured since it would be a while since I post another image (winter = snow = sadness), I'm making the ngc 7000 mosaic data (stacked) public for anyone to try their hands on processing monochrome narrowband data. Unfortunately it's not the full SHO, but just HOO as I ran out of time this year ...

Some more progress on the mosaic. Still 20 or so frames missing on the right panels, but hydrogen is almost done!

GAIA to SpaceEngine catalogs

First post, scroll down to normal versions section and it's the last one in the list. Alternatively you can click the steam workshop link (also in the first post) and it'll link to a collection with a list of all of the options.

GAIA to SpaceEngine catalogs

I have managed to load 70M stars on a 960m 4GB VRAM 16GB RAM laptop before, so it's definitely doable... It only took like 8 tries and a few hours lol

GAIA to SpaceEngine catalogs

Updated to V3.
-Removed HIP duplicates
-Changed the available versions
-Increased range, now up to 30M stars
-Added new "future" versions where the position of stars are calculated with today's measured proper motion and radial velocity.

So yeah...
Here's a gif of 1 million years of stellar motion on a 700k stars pak. Each frame is a 100k years step.

Also, to add, I'm planning on adding a few versions of "simulated" futures and stellar motion using proper motion of stars. Basically, just catalogs of where stars would be x number of years into the future. Of course, the farther into the future it is, the less accurate it becomes, as cal...

So it's been a while since any work has been done on this, but I would like to announce that duplicate stars are no more! Before: The duped stars are clearly visible where it looks like there are rays of stars pointing at earth https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/148934978095415296/73483056579398...
