Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

I think I remember this being mentioned on the old forum: is it currently not possible to add glow map textures to procedural planets? When I tried it, the only thing it did was make all lava flows glow green.

General suggestions for SpaceEngine

In this post  on the old forum in October, SpaceEngineer said he was focusing on volumetric nebulae right now, but he's been receiving assistance from Duke who has also experimented with volumetric clouds on his  Shadertoy page . Further information is being given on the  Work progress - 0.9.8.1  th...

List of Mods for Space Engine 0.980 and earlier

This is a repost of the addon for animated Jupiter clouds moving at 1000x speed, with textures I extracted from 0.9.7.1, that I originally posted on the old forum. Click the picture for a 210 KB mp4 preview (at 30x time acceleration): http://i944.photobucket.com/albums/ad286/jhfong/SpaceEngine/th_Ju...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Contextual music playing doesn't seem to work for galaxies, stars or nebulae. The music doesn't change for me when I approach any of these objects.

Space Engine - Solar/Lunar Eclipses

I meant that this is what Earth looks like from the Moon during a lunar eclipse in Space Engine. The atmosphere isn't red, and it doesn't illuminate the Moon.

Can anyone find a Habitable Rogue planet?

I'm not sure that tidal heating actually works the way it does in Space Engine. Io in real life has 1500° lava, but its surface temperature is still -170°.

Space Engine - Solar/Lunar Eclipses

I'm disappointed that lunar eclipses in Space Engine don't turn the Moon red, which is a feature Celestia has. For that matter, any time you look at the Earth with the Sun behind it in SE, the atmosphere looks like a white ring instead of a red one, which seems to be a limitation of the atmosphere m...

Can anyone find a Habitable Rogue planet?

With no sunlight, the entire atmosphere would be frozen, so any planemo that would have had an atmosphere would be an ice world.

HarbingerDawn's Modding Bazaar

Isn't that the Thunderfighter from Buck Rogers? I was fiddling with the Death Star model in your old Imperial ships pack, and when I spawn it in SE, the textures don't load and it's offset from where the crosshairs say it is, so the transformation matrix needs to be edited.

Planet bump maps

There's a Photoshop plugin called Flexify which, among its huge number of options, can convert from a cylindrical equirectangular projection to a horizontal cross. It has a 30 day free trial and costs US$54 afterward. I own the plugin and I can help convert your maps to cubemap format if the SE conv...

Planet bump maps

It's under Sci-Fi/Fantasy Ships, but it's going to take a good deal of work to make the ships compatible with 0.9.8. I haven't tried installing spacecraft addons before.

Planet bump maps

A full 3D model of the Death Star was one of the ship mods HarbingerDawn posted on the old forum:  http://en.spaceengine.org/forum/17-2613-1 However, for SE 0.9.8 it would probably be better to rename the .zip file to .pak, and I haven't checked to see if there's anything else about the installation...
