The first version of SpaceEngine I ever played was 0.972 and it had a lot of interesting little oddities

Pluto and Charon didn't have full maps so they were procedurally generated

scr00001.jpg
Same thing for Ceres

scr00002.jpg
Titan had blue oceans on its equator, not its poles

scr00003.jpg
Haumea was just an oblate spheroid (no red spot either)

scr00004.jpg
The Sun is larger than the Sun, and hotter too (5860 K vs 5778 K)

Ida's moon Dactyl is ridiculously hot and bright!

That's pretty interesting.
With the amount of bizarre creatures on Earth, I doubt aliens would look like humans with skull deformations or skin conditions.

Hey some questions, I'm making super long videos for Youtube of voyages to different galaxies and to the center of our own galaxy.  Using OBS.  My screen resolution is 1280x1024.  I have the option to use that resolution or to do a lossless crop at 1280x720 (keeps the same horizontal resolution and just lops off the bottom 304 pixels so the per pixel detail level is the same it's just the bottom part of the image gets lopped off)....for youtube should I choose this or use the original 1280x1024 resolution?  I was told that non 16:9 videos dont look so good on youtube and it wont show at my original 1280x1024 resolution, so should I choose the lossless crop at 1280x720 for the videos?

Awesome imagery as always!

It was supposed to be a Hypernova done in 0.9.9.0

Oh nice, you made that?  Is there any way to see an animated version of the explosion, say using the time slider?

There is no animation, its just an edited nebula, not an actual explosion of any kind.
Real supernovae probably will be added in later versions of SE, maybe 0.9.9.3 - 0.9.9.4 or something but I can be wrong

Source of the post Is this a private discord, because I am very interested in joining in


Official SE Discord

discord.gg/spaceengine

There is a thread on this forum about it and the Discord is also linked on the main website page at the bottom.

Hey Doc, I just tried to sign up for Discord and I found that someone else was already using my email address on it and they signed up recently?!  I got a verify email from Discord on June 4th about this.  Should I do anything about this?  Discord told me that the account that person made has been suspended (maybe because they weren't able to verify it since they dont have my password and the email was unread until I read it?)  I signed up on a different email and used the same handle as I use on here.  Should I do anything about this impostor account someone made using my email address?  Just giving everyone a heads up, that KowaiTurtleMars person isn't me!  I just signed up using the same handle I use on here.
Here is the email I got from Discord:
Hey KowaiTurtleMars,

Well, I take it everything is alright since they suspended that account anyway and I have signed up with one of my other emails.
