Intergalactic trip in preparation

Can't help you there, I don't obsess over numbers like FPS, and I never monitor them. I have no idea what mine runs at. As for the flickering, that might be the auto-exposure system. Still has some bugs, I think. Could be, but the flickering actually involves the entire SE window disappearing for a...

Is window flickering normal?  I increased my resolution and when I take screenshots now I notice the SE window flickers when I do that.  It also sometimes happens when I first load the program or if I'm switching between the SE window on one monitor and my browser or OBS, which are on the other moni...

Baby steps. It might be easier to learn about flying in atmosphere and orbital manœuvers separately, one at a time. Again, that flight school link explains all the tools, buttons, and terminology you might see and need in S.E. Thanks, the funny thing is I already completed the intragalactic voyage ...

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 ...

37237 Burn horizontal? I don't even know what that is lol. Do what every elementary school teaches you and deconstruct the sentence. Burn = fire rockets and horizontal = sideways. The only problem I'm having is that you need other people to do this for you; half your sentences can be culled by thin...

This question is pointless; this varies planet to planet and depends if they have an atmosphere or not. I'm just going to tell you now that most of these questions would best be answered by Google Because you're becoming overdependent on your questions being answered here, and most of them are basi...

Hey other Alex, what is this thing I've found on Alexworld?  It looks ominous and it's right next to Alexworld's moon! scr02422.jpg Clouds. Normals for 2D clouds get a bit funky when going vertical and viewed from below (cloud funnel appears to be lit from the wrong side). Home key is the camera zo...

37221 What is the closest to the surface of a planet one can achieve a circular orbit?  And what would be the velocity and other settings required to do so? This question is pointless; this varies planet to planet and depends if they have an atmosphere or not. I'm just going to tell you now that mo...

Science and Astronomy Questions

Got into a bit of an argument with a TV personality on Twitter who kept repeating "energy cannot be created or destroyed" repeatedly.  I know there are special cases where this law is violated and I really hate it when TV personalities simplify science to make it (according to them) more u...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

37218 Wat, what's your opinion on what Dr Fauci said yesterday?  It's very concerning.  He said people who are fully vaccinated and get infected with Delta are carrying six times the viral load of Alpha and basically the same viral load as people who never got vaccinated!  So basically everyone is ...
