Re: A hypothetical improvement survey.

In dealing with the Solar Systems planets especially, I was wandering how many of you with older systems would have sacrificed in various areas in life if it meant higher detail terrain. Image tiles and bump maps alike..... So please share this if you would for numbers sake. How many would wish to ...

Re: General questions about SpaceEngine

I'd be interested in seeing a comparison between your photography and your SpaceEngine replicas. Here is one picture, centered on 2023.10.23 19:18 UTC: https://gubi.icss.hu/astro/20231023/Jupiter_2023-10-23-1918_4_P10.jpg The little bright spot left to the Great Red Spot is Io, the dark spot right ...

Re: General questions about SpaceEngine

Hello, I tried to recreate some of my astro photos with SpaseEngine, and I've found that the rotational phase of Jupiter is just not right. It shows the Great Red Spot facing us when it is not, and not facing us when it is.  I just landed on earth at the correct location, and centered Jupiter, and ...

Re: Science and Astronomy Questions

I always wondered... can astronauts "swim" in air while on microgravity? Rooms are always quite tiny so you can always grab something to move without any problems, but if you were in a bigger module and you had nothing at your reach to grab, could you push air as you push water when swimm...

Re: Work progress 0.991

Good afternoon. I only have one question, but it's a big one. I read another blog post (about temperatures) and I want to ask, as they once asked Blizzard: “Is this a out of date April Fool’s joke?” Months, if not years, have passed since the last visible changes. And so I read a post that seemed i...

Re: General suggestions for SpaceEngine

Better generated galaxy distribution, if you look at the real galaxy clusters compared to the generated ones there are much more densely populated areas in that cluster. Also a great addition to galaxy generation is that the filaments between clusters resemble more of line shapes you see near the m...

Re: General questions about SpaceEngine

so ik that most of the game is generated but when i go to real planets they arent always what they are in real life even though showing its not procedurally generated, e.g attached kepler-62e irl vs ingame SpaceEngine is wrong for showing it as a gas giant, but you should not assume that an artist'...

I've watched the movie "65" and it was pretty cringe. [complains about creative liberties]

Re: Help with creating Mods and Addons

But it only explains how to import textures from existing galaxies with images, I’m trying to make my own textures (for example which program should I use etc) There isn't much difference from taking an image of an existing galaxy from one of the many places you can find by using a search engine, a...

Re: General questions about SpaceEngine

what happened to the black holes in SE? like I left the simulator for a few months, and the black holes turned from clear objects into some kind of mess with a bunch of dithering and other noises (unchecking the dithering does not help) the only thing that helps a little is raising the settings to ...

Re: Online spacecraft editor

also space is cold. but have you herd Andromeda is crashing the milkyway  Space isn't cold; space is nothing. The medium that permeates it is usually cold but is sometimes extremely hot. Andromeda is only going to crash into the Milky Way only in the same sense two clouds can "crash" into...

Re: Physical simulation of the space engine

I'm interested in the new gravitational lensing model used in Space Engine.  I know it's based on the Kerr metric and the fact that it can be solved in real time still amazes to me.  However, I have noticed some slight differences with the lensing effect produced by rapidly spinning black holes in ...

Re: Science and Astronomy Questions

The forums are so silent these days, so here's a challenge question, something I certainly struggle to wrap my head around.  For a distant observer it will take an infinite time to see an astronaut fall into a black hole.  But it will take a finite time for the same observer to see the black hole e...
