Celestia (vanilla) vs. Space Engine vs. Celestia Origin

I agree with Canleskis here. You seem to not realise that filling the forum with comparisons of what SpaceEngine is and what it should be, and comparisons with Celestia is just starting to become boring. It almost seems like you are spaming now. Maybe you should understand first what aim does each p...

Work progress 0.991

36812 I still think Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune's ring textures need to be updated so that they look more elaborate and slightly more visible. SpaceEngine is all about realism not about preferences. The real rings actually look like that. Is not the most photogenic image we have in mind but it is ...

36652 http://spaceengine.org/news/blog210611/ Outstanding news, Vladimir. And very interesting read, with lots of details about the implementation. Trully awesome. We totally get why half a year has gone on this specific feature, there is no other way something so complicated like planetary rings c...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

Don't worry. They will be in an upcoming addon. I've been compiling all known massive stars in the Milky Way for the past 2 years. They are around 20.000

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

Recently in another thread I posted about a video of Sebastian Lague, where a generative algorithm allows for the creation of animated stellar granulation (see 15:46 in the video). Later, midtskogen answered saying that this was probably too computationally expensive for the cadence of SpaceEngine ...

Photoshoped Image Dump

I spent my week off working on this Star Trek fanart project. Every image is either a modified space engine screenshot or uses Space Engine elements (even the first one - the craters are copied from a shot of Mars I made, but the desert itself is a shot of the Tadrart Rouge) Here's the full set :) ...

Science and Astronomy Questions

36247 Could the universe then conceivably be a brain for some much higher being? That's a cool idea, but the speed of light limit would make any transmission between the computational elements of this brain so slow that not even a single though could be made. Brains need to be compact, that's almos...

36204 Wow, nice work, and congratulations with a new discovery! Thank you Vlad :D 36204 I am still far from implementing of a whole GAIA catalog support. Athough I think that SE will not use all 2 billion stars, because it can render only stars with a good parallax, luminocity and color data. Yes, ...

36201 wow the first video was made in space engine?  how? I loaded our entire dataset as an addon in SpaceEngine, making sure that all stars had unrealistically low magnitudes (so they could be seen from intergalactic distances in the animation). I turned of procedural generation of stars and erase...

Publications about SE

So, a few weeks ago we published a research paper about a new map of the Solar Neighbourhood using OB stars (which is the most precise to date as it seems) using data from the Gaia mission (don't worry I will make an addon for our cataog in summer when we release the second iteration of this researc...

Science and Astronomy Videos

Recently a few YouTube science videos have been released that have some outstanding visual and conceptual beauty. Some of the best ones I've ever seen in my life. The first one is about slime mold simulation. Is from a programmed I follow but there's no need to understand the code here, just the bas...

The Crab Nebula has now been mapped in 3D. It would make for a nice addition to SE.

35987 I thought I would just ignore this recent discussion but I can't resist anymore: If it's so hard to normalise a scale to whatever personal preference, the poll must be lacking a question about terrestial intelligent life. :lol: :lol: :lol: 35982 You do not get to raise a fuss about things you...

35974 This will be a picture of how pop-culture taught people to think and they have no knowledge, they have Star Wars and reptilian conspiracy stuff instead. This is exactly what I'm trying to learn here. What people (with their socio-cultural context) expect. You don't need to express yourself in...

Astrobiology Poll

35972 The wording of the survey with all this indistinct testing is seen to me as overloaded, meaningless and collapsing under its own weight. Roy, the idea here is not to have an accurate representation of what each one of us thinks really but to have a Jelly Beans in a Jar kind of poll, a crowd w...
