Can my PC run Space Engine?

lol I must've mistyped, I meant 2 TB HD.  The only issue with that is, the new drive is SATA 3 and my motherboard is SATA 2.  So a bit of a bottleneck. So going from 2 GB RAM to 3.3 GB RAM isn't worth it? I found widely varying prices on the RAM.  I want to only buy Crucial RAM because of the lifeti...

Can my PC run Space Engine?

Speaking of old computers, I have one and I was looking to upgrade what I have but I saw my motherboard does not work with any video card above PCI-e 2.0 Right now I have a Core 2 Quad Q6600, 2 GB DDR2-667 memory, 640 MB Geforce 8800 GTS 112 SP graphics card.  I set my computer to allocate 2 GB for ...

4812 Any idea of whether the next version of SE will incorporate the proper motion of stars as well as the orbital motion and periods for multiple stars and exoplanets?  So we can model the past and future of the universe as well as see how the ancients saw the stars and how our descendants will se...

Thanks for the graph, I take it we'll be playing catch up for many years to come.  This reminds me of when new particles started to be discovered and there was a huge rush to begin classifying them.  Would a script file enable me to make textures for them much more easily as well as 3D modeling of t...

I agree- to avoid confusion.  I like having things in chronological order.  Back to a question I asked earlier is there any way for me to convert the starry night exoplanet.txt update file to a usable format for SE so the program can be regularly updated?

Yes sorry about that.  I'll give an example.  Using the suggestions thread as an example, let's say (like earlier) I was wondering about a saturation slider but also wanting to ask if it's possible for exoplanets to be automatically updated.  Should I put them in the same post or different posts sin...

Thank you!  But what if I want to talk about different subjects (like different kinds of add ons.)  I've been using the edit button if I think of something that belongs in a post I've already made but what if I'm responding to multiple people or wanting to talk about a different thing in the same th...

Wow, that's a lot.  Starry Night Pro Plus shipped with 1,800 and I guess it's more with the updates but probably nowhere near 3,590.  Still, as I'm looking at the SNPP program folder, it updates exoplanets, comets, asteroids and satellites in .txt file format.  Is there any way for me to use these ....

What would you say the total number of "real" exoplanets in SE is?  More or less than 2,000?

Coldest Brown Dwarf (as cold as the north pole) is this in the program? http://www.space.com/25659-coldest-brown-dwarf-near-sun-discovery.html I think it is but the name is a bit different WISE 08551-07144 instead of WISE 0855-0714 There are some others- including these room temperature ones which I...

Thanks Jack!  I am looking at Proxima Centauri right now and I remember an exoplanet was discovered orbiting it last year that made some news, is there any way to add it to the program? The 8 they have listed are of the procedural type it seems.

Hey I wonder if anyone has an add on for Tabby's Star (or if someone will add it in the future into the program itself.)  I downloaded the add on for Boom Star, because I thought it was Tabby's Star but I see they are two different stars.
