Intergalactic trip in preparation

36951 Hey longname, can you let me know if I'm doing this procedure correctly? Objective: to fly a cross section through the thickest section of M87 that takes just under 12 hours in Flight Simulation mode. Process:  Since the ships are all located in the solar system and I have to fly millions of ...

Work progress 0.991

I see it comes with last Beta update announced on Discord. Sharpening algorithm has been changed. On my side i was using the old one with an high value (1.7).  New sharpening decreased the quality of visuals when you look at nebulas or galaxies clouds, comparated to previous settings. I've been sho...

36937 Oh okay, I was trying to do that using the boost thrusters function.  I see the same control panel is available in Flight Simulator mode that's available in Planetarium mode but whenever I tried to do anything there my space ship control panel would disappear Might be because you're using fun...

36925 I saw the warp drive throttle below the others, I just have to make sure I'm oriented in the right direction with the ship because sometimes it moves me farther away from my target and sometimes selects a different target than what I had previously selected! Warp drive velocity is based on mo...

36919 I tried those lower speeds in planetarium mode, and it just makes me crash into the planet.  I guess that's why I got so used to using higher speeds and simply course correcting when I got too high up.  I've been trying to find a happy medium where it wont crash me and wont zoom me up into sp...

36915 Thanks, that explains why I was flying off so much.  Is 100 km/s more reasonable? Orbital velocity close to Earth is 8km/s, and Earth is the largest rocky body in the system. I'd suggest developing an intuition for spaceflight and physics before doing anything else because 100km/s is still a ...

Qr Bbpost Visually at least, it can be done, ringularity and all, but extremely heavy on performance.

Does this guy's simulation take into account the motion of the camera?

36907 Okay as far as horizontal speed and heading, let's say I set it to WNW (just picking a random compass heading) and say 1000 km/s for horizontal speed.....and leave it there for a few hours when I go to sleep and OBS is recording the video?  It will just stay on that heading and horizontal spe...

36902 Figured he was working on Kerr interiors too since he made the post on this page about Kerr black holes: I didn't see any correlations, it just seemed somewhat relevant. Either way, trajectories in SE are completely Euclidean and Kerr interiors would be extremely difficult to implement. I won...

36901 So "holding" doesn't mean I need to keep the button pressed, I can just set it to hold altitude and set the compass direction in flight simulation mode and it will keep that altitude and direction until I change the settings?  Both of these things only work with planetary ships righ...

Qr Bbpost But what about those images Vlad posted from the interior of Kerr black holes showing the grid lines and the two horizons- do you think that's a possibility within the following year at least?

When did Vlad show Kerr interiors?

36895 So I can set both constant altitude and constant speed? Hold altitude does what it says on the tin, it locks your altitude. Fly to the desired height then activate, or use it to prevent a crash landing, You are free to change your speed and rotational on the horizontal plane, but vertical mov...
