Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

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...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

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...

GAIA to SpaceEngine catalogs

To disable default star catalog, you may try to make an empty file on the same virtual path as the HIPPARCOS.csv, for example: addons/catalogs/stars/HIPPARCOS.csv 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 app...

37820 Do you have optimism that say within the next few hundred years or so (especially once we have a working theory of quantum gravity) we'll be able to make this workable? I think STL warp may be possible but the FTL aspect not so much. 37822 In the abstract they mention conventional EM sources,...

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...

Intergalactic trip in preparation

I think I figured it out.  Using 30 billion LY as the approximate maximum distance of any object in SE from Earth.  Using Warp 15.4 I should get there in about 11.6 hours- are my calculations correct?  To do a full diameter trip of the SE universe it would be 60 billion LY so I would need to use war...

I guess to answer my question of what my warp limit should be, I need to mention that I want to get to the furthest object in the SE universe in 12 hours.  What warp setting would do this and what is the furthest object in the SE universe and how far away is it? Is it this? https://www.reddit.com/r/...

Apparently GAIA has 1.8 billion stars now wow https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-55178257 How much RAM would I need to import all 1.8 billion stars? I have a related question.  I went into my config file and it says that SE is limited to using 3 GB of VRAM and 8 GB of RAM?  Should I chang...

37814 he found that a warp drive wouldn’t need to use negative energy. Lentz’s solution would allow the bubble to travel faster than the speed of light. He still has the issue with horizons and just because he built a geometry which has balanced forces, he still has solutions within requiring these...

37808 Thanks, Fellow Alex!  Do you think doing everything manually in the way described (1- sync velocity, 2- rotate to target, 3- set boost exponent) is the best way to go or is it better to use the Hyperjump button and try to stop the boost exponent from getting too high by clicking on a lower nu...
