I request shadows

I requested ice halos, I don't know - almost 10 years ago?  Halos could be added as a 2d png texture with small shining effect which is auto-enabled if the camera is 1. In atmosphere and 2. In a low temperature zone. That's all it takes. It's one day of work. And that right there is the difference ...

35868 Doc are there any long term risks with the gpu running over 80C? Shorter lifespan, but this applies to any piece of hardware. whats the threshold for lifespan?  lifespan doesn't shorten if the temps remain below 80 or does it have to be under 70 or something else, Doc? I think for cpu it's un...

Technically that doesn't meet the minimum requirements of any version of SE ever released, even ones from 10 years ago.

Fantastic works! Congrats! :)  
Can this programming technique be used to procedurally generate rocks and stones of different sizes on the surface of planets?

There are much better ways to do that.

I don't believe it looks like this irl. All the stones are size comparable to Enterprise, which makes them dozens of feet diameter. In real space the particles are 1-3 inch size mostly. This must look like a fog of dust. And this huge rocks field is 80s sci-fi. The size of the particles and thickne...

34291 I've already lost most of my interest in this update. Surely there are other things in your life you can be focusing on besides the next SpaceEngine update? Just go live your life, do what you want to do, and forget about it. Then one day, it will be done and you can see it for yourself. For ...

A very PC discussion

31372 I tried the SOTI from Doctors discord pak, which uses PBR (if I understand correctly), and got very low fps (~10-12fps) on my setup at 5760x1080p (tripple 1920x1080) on ultra settings. On High settings I got something around ~ 25-30fps when orbiting in low altitude around planets and maybe 35...

A very PC discussion

Yeah, ray tracing is indeed an awesome way to do things, but the hardware to allow it to be widely implemented in high-resolution real-time graphics just didn't exist until the advent of Nvidia's RTX cards, which are still not that great at it and which are used by only a small fraction of the popul...
