Intergalactic trip in preparation

I can see why boost 12 is so popular.....1 trillion is a nice round figure for the typical warp engine lol

Intergalactic trip in preparation

37738 This is mind blowing....I wonder which of these warp scales SE uses?  Does it use the cubic scale?  Obviously not the asymptotic scale since starships in SE regularly reach and exceed warp 10. SE has it's own scale that has nothing to do with Star Trek.  In Trek the warp drive is it's own pro...

37742 No not that of course.  In the response before that one I said it probably wouldn't be possible, because you'd actually need a space ship to use an alcubierre drive to carry the information. That's not to say that other dimensions or other universes don't exist of course (they are necessary i...

AFAIK I'm not sure the SE model of warp throttling would work either.  It seems like it would be more of an in/out thing.  On the issue of hyperspace, if other dimensions were traversable, since they wouldn't follow our concept of length, width, depth, etc., there would be no way for us to journey t...

No, what does " would we be able to use hyperspace for communication" mean??? AFAIK you're just making up word salad now. Nope, you're completely wrong......the concept is presented here.....I've been familiar with this since I was in middle school. and dude I don't know why it's so diffi...

Intergalactic trip in preparation

Simple, complex — it's been a while, I thought those were the two choices.  Exotic is for places like Titan worlds. I go here, I go there... Hey I see that the ship automatically takes me out of warp before I get to the target, so I don't have to slow the engines down until after it comes out of wa...

Wow beautiful!  I wonder how dim the dimmest stars you've captured are!  Orion season has begun!  My favorite time of the year!

Image Dump

Hey I asked this earlier......when in orbit around a ringed planet is it possible to keep one camera focused on the rings and the other one in waterskiing mode, observing the surface of the planet from up close? You can add up to eight cameras per ship. Oh okay and switch between the different ones...

37716 By the way, speaking of that, how many grassy planets have you found?  I'd found only one in 0.980 and one so far in 0.990.  They're very rare.  I try to keep lists of planets where I've found very obvious signs of life (like a grass covered world.) Grass? I've come across plenty of planets w...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.990

Glad I am not the only one who does these long intergalactic trips!  You went from Earth to the Andromeda Galaxy or did you build the ship there? I created both ships in a low orbit around the Moon this time and docked my Skylone on the big ship there (just for fun). A warp drive makes extreme dist...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

37719 Looks like everyone is moving onto Booster shots now Alternatively, everyone could face the fact that the vaccines aren't as efficient against the pandemic as advertised and rather focus on why it is so. Everyone is frustrated here because they are forced to go back to mask wearing.  Particul...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

Still no sign that the vaccines are as efficient as initially advertised.  Since the recent variants are regarded more contagious, does it mean that the vaccines basically makes these variants more or less like the original virus, and with social restrictions now being lifted, the world is in reali...
