Location: Asteroid going through asteroid - The "fake" rings asteroids move faster than a "regular" asteroid object. I suspect it's because of the "sub-rings" and the regular asteroid not being centered in the ring. - A consequence of the difference of speed is that the...

Black hole destroying star (APOD)

Oh this means it can't do Great Comets either, can it? You mean hyperbolic comets (Halley's comet is a great comet and has a period)? If so, OK, I don't actually know what type of motion SE handles, but my understanding is that SE can't handle anything as complex what the video shows. I'll gladly b...

Black hole destroying star (APOD)



(via https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap210427.html)

SE cannot handle non-periodic events, so we probably won't see this kind of things any time soon, but it sure would be nice :)

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

I think one thing that would help with understanding scale is having more "human sized objects" on the planets surface like rocks and cliffsides even trees on planets that support life A lot of people (myself including) come to Space Engine hoping for a more realistic version of No Man's ...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

Zebra, we don't know if the multiverse exist, much less how it looks like. So the best that could be done is something that look the same as our own universe. And so there wouldn't be anything to gain from having it.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.990

I think I've seen the bug mentioned before, but I can't find the post. Either way it's either a new report or a "#metoo" :). Bug:   The diffraction spikes from the sun are visible through the moon during an eclipse. Version:   SpaceEngine version 0.990.40.1813 beta | x64 | Steam edition Sp...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.990

31394 Is there a way to know the current altitude? The ' Surf/sea altitude ' display does not work with stars (and not with gas or ice giants). Maybe because no land and sea height is defined for such objects. (These objects do not actually have a solid surface.) Ok, thx. But that said, in SpaceEng...

Supergiants look like minecraft (Star M9.6 Ia):

Is there a way to know the current altitude? I'm pretty sure I could see it before with the other info on the top-left. I'm curious about the height of those stairs (probably 1-2k km)

I don't know if it's a bug or me just expecting things to be more like Earth but this looks wrong: scr00000.jpg se://v=990&n=Moon%20Cold%20arid%20aquaria&b=RS%201237%2D6%2D7%2D37520%2D19%207%2E3&p=RS%201237%2D6%2D7%2D37520%2D19%207&t=+309557205E6FAA5B51153F844C&x=+1CF030453974897...

Steam is one of the most popular game launching platforms there is. [...] After seeing videos and screenshots from inside the engine itself, new and old users will know that it is worth the money.  Some people have complained about the use of Steam and even more have complained about the new price....

Also, support for 32-bit Windows may not be needed now. According to the Steam hardware survey, 98.5% of the Windows machines are 64-bits. And my guess is that most of those remaining 1.5% are people who have Steam running on an old machine but don't really use it, or use it to play the same old ga...

That was the subject of the analogy. I was speaking from a developer's viewpoint :).

Well then, you're installing a lock in someone else's home. Still a bad thing in my opinion, but now you're the perpetrator instead of the victim ;).

25671 Aaaand there's the fact that no DRM is uncrackable. Houses get broken into all the time and stuff gets stolen. Does that mean we shouldn't take precautions and lock our doors at night, or set alarms? That's a really bad analogy. DRM is not protecting you and your things. DRM is protecting the...
