A Note About Eventual Mac Compatibility

also I dont believe you can custom build a Mac either.

I wouldn't mind doing a custom build of a system with Linux as the OS though.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.990

Ok, I just got it working.  I have a dual monitor setup with a 4k as my main monitor and a 1920x1200 as my secondary.  I guess the last time I used Space Engine, I had it on my secondary monitor as that's where it kept trying to open.  But, as I mentioned, it just remained blank and Not Responding ...

General questions about SpaceEngine

37889 No Mans Sky made the universe much smaller and proportions comical just to avoid boring their users with the mind-bending real scale of things in nature. Real scale or not, not a lot would change - the biggest difference between NMS planets is the skin and roughness of the terrain. Outer Wild...

General questions about SpaceEngine

37857 is this game going to be a full scale representation of the universe? (not like no mans sky) SpaceEngine reached that goal several years ago. It has a similar number of Galaxies of that of the real universe. Each with a realistic number of stars and planets. Everything scaled and located real...

37883 One thing I wanted to ask--  I was reading  about the far future "collision" between M31 and our galaxy resulting in a giant elliptical galaxy (like M87) in the far future- are the supermassive black holes of both galaxies going to collide or is one just expected to absorb the other...

Intergalactic trip in preparation

Right, I'm now wanting both an accelerator curve and a boost exponent curve function.  This is what I mean....first for accelerator curve..... a way to create a custom curve function for the accelerator to gradually increase speed while within the host galaxy to leisurely see all the sights and to r...

It's fascinating how the entire intuitive concept of time and contemporaneity falls apart.  Once crossing the horizon, we can still see the spaceship and the universe, but we've detached from that universe which in one sense is expired and gone. you might be even more right than you think if black ...

I never believed that space and time were fundamental in the first place mid, neither really exists at the fundamental quantum level and black holes are awesome as being macro representations of quantum particles, I think.  In reality black holes represent the unification of the macro with the micro...

Intergalactic trip in preparation

Warp 15.7 seems to be a nice balance between speed and duration.  Took me 20 minutes to go 6.7 million light years after which the autopilot brought me out of warp and I adjusted my boost exponent to 11.733 for a more leisurely tour through the galaxy. Question regarding main engines....is setting m...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

37861 I just found out today of a 20 something year old doctor who died from COVID even though she was fully vaccinated; she suffered a blood clot after getting COVID I thought that was a rare, ill effect of the AZ and J&J vaccines? So my 13 year old daughter just got out of isolation with covi...

GAIA to SpaceEngine catalogs

Actually I want to use the above trick (empty file with same name) for different purpose- to disable all galaxies other than local group. But it doesn't seem to work anymore (for both stars and galaxies). so basically trying to find a way to disable existing catalog without modifying /data/ folder....

Again, you are looking at the numbers and not the units.  Are you familiar with your ship thrusters? Autopilot has a number of functions. In your last screenshots, the only autopilot function I see active is "Kill rotation". Also, going back to a post I made awhile back, I think ship cont...

General 0.990 Discussion

37456 I noticed there is a direct correlation between this number and the ease with which I can keep the ship at a certain altitude and elevation.  Really impressed with the ship I'm using it doesn't crash or fly off into space too easily lol.  48 hours and I have no intention of trying to challeng...
