Intergalactic trip in preparation

37074 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? Oh! Another thing that bugs me with the ships — and it is also an issue in .9.8.0, but not fixed in .9.9.0 — when you ...

37167 Well I was trying to get the ship to go faster than the paltry 1.85 m/sec I was getting.  I tried using the mouse scroll wheel to increase the speed but it had no effect. Looks like you were on the ground. Use the hover jets first to get off the ground. Planet HUD? Hor (horizon) mode is what ...

Flying ships in atmosphere can be tricky. As I mentioned earlier, the flight model is very rudimentary at this time.  Flying in denser atmospheres causes more problems, and you are on a planet with over six times the Earth's atmospheric density. The faster you fly, the more lift you generate. You w...

37160 I see the grid lines for direction in Hor mode but not in Warp mode.  I'm using Warp mode because it seems to be faster, but I'm not sure what the exact speed is because there are various indicators for it. Why are you using Warp mode in the atmosphere? You should only use Warp mode for inter...

I like Hor mode better near the surface because it shows the grid lines.  Glad that levelling altitude isn't cutting off my main engines, but I'd like to figure out why that happens when it does and how to prevent that.  The speed in both modes is slowly increasing and I've been clicking on the plan...

Intergalactic trip in preparation

I'm just playing around with this no idea how but I got the speed to increase using the numpad.  But now the numpad also snaps to the middle whenever I try to change my direction.  But even so now both in Warp and Hor mode I just hold the numpad or cursor keys down until I'm going in the direction I...

versus here in Warp mode, is it -4.34 m/sec (and why is there a negative sign here, am I going in reverse lol?)  How do I increase the speed and make sure it's going forwards?  By the way I see both here and in Hor mode I need to use the numpad as the cursor keys snap me back to where I was. scr0218...

Intergalactic trip in preparation

Okay I think I've got it!  I switched to airplane mode on the lower left panel and that allowed me to land exactly where I want to, just like in Planetarium mode!  All cursor keys and numpad work just like in that mode with that setting.  I built the ship on the planet just like I wanted but now I'm...

Thanks, so I was in free flight mode then.  Here's the issue I was having.  I used Find Object from the left menu to find a star with a planetary system (Betelgeuse in the above example.)  I selected Go To from the Find Object menu to go there.  And then I used the Solar System Browser from the left...

Yes, free flight mode — the 1, 2, or 3 key on the upper row of keys (not the number pad), should work the same as Planetarium mode. Planetarium and Flight Sim mode are two completely separate modes as of 990. Where you go in one will have nothing to do with the other. They even have completely diff...

37148 Thanks, I have an Audigy RX 7.1 sound card (and matching 7.1 speaker set) from Creative, so I guess I have to go into their customized control panel. What?? I said SE's sound settings, I'm not sure what compelled you to check your system settings. 37148 Is there a way for me to center a plane...

I was also going to ask if we can fly ships upside down Top Gun style, but I think I accidentally discovered we can do it and very close to the surface!

37133 It obscures my customized sound track so I was hoping there was a way to toggle the sound of the engines to off. Check the sound settings, music and sfx should have separate volume sliders. Thanks, I have an Audigy RX 7.1 sound card (and matching 7.1 speaker set) from Creative, so I guess I h...

I hope this isn't a trivial question, but I haven't found an answer to it within the program so here goes.  Sometimes I like to use the "free movement" version of the program from within Flight Simulator.  But I've found going to a planet is more difficult.  So, here is an example, I went ...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.990

Given the file name and other info from that folder, there's a high chance that's 4 files because someone downloaded or copy-pasted the same file four times. I think you're right.  The weird thing is I remember hitting download only once I don't know how 3 duplicates ended up being downloaded along...
