Intergalactic trip in preparation

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 ...

The atmospheric flight model is very rudimentary at best so far. But you can develop oscillations. Too much speed and you generate more lift, your nose goes up. When your nose goes up, you start losing speed, so your nose drops. As your nose drops, you start picking up speed again. Rinse and repeat...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.990

I have this add-on but I have no idea where to put it or what it does.  Downloaded it a long time ago but never used it, what does it do and where should I put it? clouds.jpg You literally just move your addon into the addons folder... Oh I was wondering if I have to make a new folder inside Addons...

Did you make these ships yourself?  I can't find them in either version!  I usually prefer cockpits but I like yours too.  Can you make them rotate?

This is from the only cockpit view of a starship I've found:

Intergalactic trip in preparation

It's weird that setting it to warp lets me attain faster speeds at the surface, faster than I thought would be possible without friction causing me to burn up lol. Any ideas why I was stuck in a loop and kept splashing into an ocean?  I had just turned on hover and my nice level flight turned into a...

No idea what's going on here but I just changed direction and this is what I see.  It wont let me select those two objects in the sky (wonder why?) to find out what they are.

37107 What does Distance 8433.24 km refer to?  Not distance from the planet, surely? Distance from the center of the planet. Thanks.  I did something I shouldn't have but I was experimenting because I couldn't get the speed to increase so I set Hover to 100 and it zoomed me off the planet and when ...

37098 I did try to find the bright side but for some reason it wont let me even have the planet in view (it won't let me move the view using the cursor keys or the keypad or change the target to a different part of the planet, I must have some setting wrong, because all of that works fine when I'm ...

37097 Got it to work!  Thanks for all your help (and for the help the other Alex provided of course.)  I don't know what that other guy was complaining about, I love these ships and especially the cockpit views.  Everything seems very logical once you get the hang of it (I'll still be asking for ad...

Sci-Fi System Generator V1.2 SE 0.99

37090 Hi How would one go about using this to create all the worlds of the Asimovian universe?  There are lots of worlds and I wonder if this can be used to create them in bulk? It's a random generator so you can't exactly control it. Thanks so that wouldn't work for what I have in mind.  If no one...

37086 Thanks this might explain why SE 0990 was ignoring the modified Skylone file I installed.  It was extracted into a "default" folder like you mentioned, that sits alongside the ships pak file.  The problem is the date on the .sss file is from 2016.  Do you suggest I re-save it so tha...
