Help with creating Mods and Addons

Thats what I've already achieved. But what I need is only an EmisMap which, if it would have 'EmisBright' set to '0', would be dark, even in a reachable light source. I want to make an spaceship interior which isn't affected by any external light sources like stars. Would not a pure black diffusion...

General questions about SpaceEngine

10307 Here's a simple question: What is the difference between "CorrEngines" and "TurnEngines"? Is the first for lateral movement and the second for rotation? And if so, what units are used? From the Manual : MainEngines, RetroEngines, HoverEngines, CorrEngines – maximum acceler...

Here's a simple question: What is the difference between "CorrEngines" and "TurnEngines"? Is the first for lateral movement and the second for rotation? And if so, what units are used? Oh... one more, will ships and bases eventually be rendered in  the atmosphere? Currently, and ...

Qr Bbpost Sometimes the attachment number gets wonky. Since all images are already uploaded, just delete the text, and redo the inline one by one, see if that helps.

Thanks. I do believe that fixed it. :)

My first portrait-style screenshot. :) SpaceEngine 2017-07-18 23-11-38.jpg I like it. :)  I've worked in publishing for years, and was an early fan/user of portrait mode computer monitors. FIts a printed page better. :) And on that note... scr00635.png scr00630.png scr00133.png scr00156.png scr0055...

Very strange. Do you edit the file in the .pak file, or have the extracted .sss file?

HarbingerDawn , that trick with pressing the esc key right after pressing "4" to take control of a ship and keep the camera position works a treat. Thanks for that hint. (I do have to remember to right-click and follow the ship, or the camera will still rotate with the ship, but that's ok...

Oh an another question: when I edit the main thruster values, it seems to have no effect (?). Hover engines work, not sure about retrothrusters, corrective engines certainly work, but changes in thruster values seem to yield no results: the ships are almost always limited to 50m/s acceleration, whi...

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

8853  It would be nice to be able to take control of a ship without the camera moving Press 4 to take control of the ship, and instantly press Esc. Your camera's position should change very little or not at all. 8853  it would be nice to have some way of moving the menus, text panels, and other inf...

Default ships vs mods

Hard to choose just one item out of these three. I like doing them all.

But if I had to choose one, it would be the ship editor. That still leaves a lot of flexibility.

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

I can't tell you how many times I've set up the almost perfect screenshot, only to realize I need to rotate the ship or fire up the engines, which then moves the camera to one of the ship-defined cameras, and then I have to try and find that perfect camera spot again. It would be nice to be able to ...
