steeljaw354,
Code

A flashlight option would be a button that you would press or check off on the side of the screen

Nice idea :)
and the light color customization would be cool too: Red, Blue, Purple, Green, Brown, Yellow and White colors

the Witch Head Nebula is a supernova remnant, not a diffuse nebula,

the witch head nebula is a reflection nebula, since reflection nebulae are not added in SE it's used as a diffuse nebula.
Quote SpaceHopper ()
The Veil Nebula (in SE) is part of the supernova remnant called the Cygnus Loop (not in SE)

the veil nebula does not exist in SpaceEngine.
Quote SpaceHopper ()
And I didn't find the Tarantula Nebula in SE 0.98

i think SpaceEngineer didnt add it because it's located in the LMC.
Quote SpaceHopper ()
I liked looking for terras with life in the planetary nebulae.

it was unrealistic to find planets with life in them, since the star inside a planetary nebula is dying.

Well, you can find planets with life orbiting white dwarves that are not in planetary nebulae. Those stars, by the way, take a few billion years to die, enough for life to form.

Oh, I thought you had added it once to your nebula mod during RC2 or RC3. Maybe I mixed up the Witch Head Nebula and the different Witch's Broom Nebula, which is part of the Veil Nebula. But the Cygnus Loop would be a good thing to add, don't you think?

And here's something else I found...R136a1 (which is supposed to be a single star) is bifurcated in 0.980. I hope this gets fixed in the next version. And I wonder if anyone else has seen bifurcated catalog single stars in 0.980.

I thought white dwarfs are relatively stable with lifespans longer than the age of the universe.

They exist as white dwarfs for at least a few billion years, that's what I meant.

nspired by my recent kayak hike, and looking on a work of Spock1108, I made my version of semi-realistic-semi-fake terrain model of Titan. It have 16k resolution near poles, where famous seas and lakes of liquid hydrocarbons can be found.

The original map where seas and lakes are visible have resolution of 12k x 6k, while there more hi-res images of some areas exist. Maybe in the future, when the new hi-res global map will be released by NASA, I will update this fake elevation map.

From the surface, resolution is very low (of course - the map is just 8-16k), and some artefacts are visible - not precise transition from land to water liquid methane. This will be solved when procedural terrain refinement will be implemented.


It's beautiful! Thank you so much to have continued my work and bringing him where I could not! happy happy





Sorry for my English! ;)

But planetary nebula exist just 10,000 years and then vanished. Not enough time to even coalesce debris into new generation of planets, not talking about life.

Catalog stars are not bifurcated since 0.972. If you find a binary catalog star, this mean what it is indeed binary. Cirax made huge work making the binary stars catalog for SE.

LOL it is not so fabulous right now, but sometimes it is. I'm trying to look more brutal than I am in reality smile

I wonder how many users here have a Vive or a Rift, if Vive support is added then Rift CV1 will also work as well thanks to OpenVR.

Version: 0.9.7.4 RC3

A couple of bugs found.

1. In some binary systems comet tails only show if you click on them?

2. The right panel in the Universe Map sometimes does not close and remains stuck on screen.

3. Planet Shine - Super mode: has a bug where a bright moon (Which is lighting up the dark side of a planet) then becomes eclipsed, this then often causes a 'Christmas tree' light affect to happen (Flickers green,red,blue) when there should be NO light at all. Setting the Planet shine to 'Simple' or 'Normal' OR sometimes turning of 'Dithering' also helps?

4. Also as reported in previous posts the docked ships not remaining docked when reloading still exists.

That's all for now.

p.s Apologies in advance if these bugs have already been repeatedly reported.

Well, here is what R136a1 looks like in 0.980:

It wasn't binary in 0.974 RC3. And according to Wikipedia it's supposed to be a single star.
