Also got a question about making videos while flying over planets.  Is there any way to do it in "autopilot"?  So say I leave the computer running for 12 hours while making a planetary flyover video, do I need to stay at the computer or can I leave it without crashing into the surface or flying off into space?  Basically I want to be able to maintain a fixed distance over a planet's surface while making a video, is this possible for up to 12 hours?

Two new videos, made with 0.980, involving my favorite custom planet in orbit around Delta Trianguli :)

I love the colors on the planet!  Is that planet in 0980 by default?  Also, have you found a way to do a fly over of a planet without constantly having to man the controls?  If I'm not constantly adjusting altitude and direction I find that I'm either crashing somewhere or flying off into space?  I want to make a long 12 hr planet fly over video like I do with space videos, but with space videos I can set a course and direction and speed and not crash into anything....not so much with planet videos.  In other words, is there some sort of autopilot setting for planetary fly overs where I dont have to adjust the direction and altitude and can be away from my computer for hours and just let the thing fly itself like I can with interstellar and intergalactic voyage videos?

It is a custom planet from my TPE Universe mod, Belle Hades.

There is no autopilot for aviation mode, unfortunately :(

Thanks, I just submitted that as a feature request.  One would think it would be fairly easy to accomplish (along with a directional compass for when flying over planet and moon surfaces.)

Just wanted to update this and thank the developers at Space Engine who have now made the flight simulator so stable and easy to use.  I just did a 9 day flight over the planet Pandora (and back in 2021 I was trying to get to 12 hours haha) and I'm now on my second flight, and this one is already at 7 days!  The new autopilot is amazing and automatically goes into hover mode (while still flying forwards) to keep the ship from crashing into the ground and when it is high enough the hover engines automatically turn off, so there is no crashing or flying off into space (unless one wants to!)  Great work guys, this new version is amazing for making videos and I don't have to be at my computer to constantly keep adjusting the engines anymore!

New Video Premiering in around 45 minutes!

From the surface of the sun to Pluto, this is a journey where the only sounds you'll hear are the Celestial Body's Magnetosphere sounds.
Each planet have its own voice, and they will probably speak to you.
This can give off a sensation of Cosmic Horror, but to some others, it may be a sensation of awe.

It's pretty personal: Universe can be Terrifying and Beautiful at the same time!
Enjoy!
