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....

Intergalactic trip in preparation

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...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

A more optimistic outlook would involve a mutation which is highly transmissible but only giving mild or no symptoms whilst also giving immunity against other variants, in which case the population would self-vaccinate.  The problem with that, however, is that after several billion infections, the ...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

37845 Is either getting the virus or getting vaccination what will eventually slow the rate of mutation of the virus, Wat? It's a little complicated. The probability of a mutation per-transmission is roughly constant, and the  rate at which new variants (of any kind) appear is roughly proportional ...

37849 and now it's  -0.20 m/sec You are travelling at an effective speed of 152 light-years per second, and you're worried about a small 0.2 m/sec offset? You could correct that with just the thrusters, without even leaving warp or changing heading. If the autopilot is not active, then you will fly...

Intergalactic trip in preparation

37821  I tried to use it today, it's unworkable, turns out the program won't let you change the boost exponent until AFTER hyperjump is finished and by then it's too late and I'm already at the target. Yeah, thought you could do that in .9.8.0, but just as easy to turn off the hyperjump autopilot a...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

Airborne viruses spread very easily through hand contact, since the virus is in the respiratory droplets and nasal discharge, and many people unconsciously touch their noses very often or cover their sneezes/coughs with them. It's also a very good way to transmit the common cold. Basically, these v...

37836 I highly recommend rewatching that interview He recommends the elbow bump.  Soon two years into this and the bump doesn't seem to have been questioned.  The virus is airborne, so why recommend a greeting which brings people at half an arm's length rather than a full arm's length as with a han...

In the  opening post of this thread I said, with emphasis and a link to an expert, " our response must be viewed as a long war. " I highly recommend rewatching that interview now with the benefit of hindsight and see how accurate he was: dcJDpV-igjs Long, because it is necessary to slow t...

GAIA to SpaceEngine catalogs

Does this trick still work in latest update? I tried this but those stars are still appearing. Why do you want to not make the stars appear?  I keep all catalogs on as well as all procedural bodies and everything works fine together. Actually I want to use the above trick (empty file with same name...

Intergalactic trip in preparation

Okay so I did the Hyperjump to do an automated sync velocity and rotate to target and then I turned Hyperjump off and that worked.  And then I set Boost exponent to where I want and all of that works fine.  But here's the issue- every once in awhile I get a -0.10 m/sec purple warp bug which only dis...
