A very PC discussion

37287 Did you try undervolting your 3090? Yeah, but it tends to destabilize the overclock, I did have to underclock the VRAM due to overheating during summer, lots of stuttering in games, throttling. I also have issues with the VRAM temperature, have seen some people change the thermal pads which i...

Black hole slingshots using the current mechanics.

In order to prepare the trip what I do is find the two black holes I am going to use in the origin and target galaxy and add them to the location menu (F6 key). You have to be nearly landed on them for them to be added when you click the "add" button. I then use that menu with the targetin...

Black hole slingshots using the current mechanics.

Thanks this is a very helpful guide!  I'm going to try it next, you laid it out in a way that is very easy to understand.  I already did a trip from one end of M87 to the other, but it was done the usual way, not this, much more practical method.  One thing that should be pointed out- intermediate ...

Black hole slingshots using the current mechanics.

Hello! A few years ago, Vladimir proposed a way of traveling intergalactically quickly using the (then) new abilitiy spaceships had to travel: the warp drive (based on the Alcubierre warp drive). The way it works in SE is it boosts the "absolute speed" of a ship (galaxies/solar systems are...

And  Canleskis ,  sorry for hijacking your thread, perhaps a mod can break out the "flight school" posts into a different thread and keep this one on topic for intergalactic warp flights and black hole slingshots. -Alex (the other one) No problem, it's always good seeing people shed some ...

Hey, what kind of troubles have you gotten into with ships in 0.990? I haven't noticed any big change since 0.998 (although there are obvious issues), what did you see break? Well... let's see if I can remember everything... ⋅ When a ship camera view is a "cockpit" view, the rig...

If you want to add warp drive capability to a shuttle or the Skylone, you just need to make a couple of simple edits to the *.sss file of the particular ship. There will be two settings to change: "Warpdrive" from false to true; and "WarpBoostLog" from 0 to a suitable number, I ...

Just amazing! This is exactly why I wasn't trying to register before. Because toxicity. I often seen it here, but this time my curiosity became stronger than my fears and I did register here and this happened right away. I asked one simple fan question, what is the new big goal for SE, and I did no...

longname had a poll and zero users voted for fuel. That was my poll, mate. http://forum.spaceengine.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=641&p=34058&hilit=volumetric#p34058 I think that is pretty much enough for conclusions. Also I had numerous talks to players, none of them were using ships because...

Actually I don't get how a simple question of mine could start such a toxic thread. I asked the authors, not somebody talking for them. Question was simple as fork, what is the new big goal. Nothing toxic, nothing scary in it. The reaction in the comments is always amazing. By saying "Please d...

I also want ships to be  something more usable but at the moment they are so bad that some fuel feature can't bring them to playable level in any case. The entire piloting must be rewritten and only after that fuel can come (which is actually a restriction, not an improvement, and we don...

36874 Or you can use the "go to" with warp that boosts your ship to 10 km/s relative to your target and engages warp until you're there.  You can then increase your relative speed to make the trip shorter if you wish to. You don't need to wait until that's done to increase your relative s...

Thanks, that's very useful!  I haven't used the flight simulator before but will try to do so now.  What was holding me back was the narrow field of view. You can change the field of view the same way as in the planetarium in the bottom right menu. Thanks is there any way to do an "autopilot&q...

Well, basically I am asking how to do this.  I don't think it's possible in Planetarium mode?  Also, which ship did you use? No it's a maneuver that's meant for ships in the flight simulator. Ships don't have any limitations regarding fuel usage or time spent so this maneuver is just meant to simul...
