Maybe letting each user select their own color and font for markings and labels is the best option?
would definitely be the best route to take. that way, people with vision impairments or disorders can set their constellations to be the best that suits them

Hi, space travelers :) I wonder if anyone have noticed that the Solar system is not very well located into the Milky Way : SE placed it to close to the border, actually our Solar system is at 25 000 ly from the bulge and 25 000 ly from the border in the little arm called Orion. Is it possible with a script to move it to the good the place ? I want to use SE with students and I have to avoid inaccuracies...

Hi,
if you don't have much info then how can you teach your students about solar system :D

I also believe that, but it's not a matter of position of the Solar system within the galaxy, it's rather the model of the Milky Way which looks slightly smaller than what it actually is. It's not a big issue, but maybe it can be slightly adjusted  :smile:

I might be wrong though, I'm not a cosmologist! Also no one ever saw the Orion arm from outside (?) so we're don't really know what the Milky Way looks at all.

Hi,
You're right, no one and no spaceship ever took an image of outside the orion arm, by far !! But, thanks to the radioastronomy, we know rather well the environment of our galactic arm. By the way, what bothers me the most is that Space Engine places us too close to an edge...
