This is the best thing ever. I want to say 'I love you', SpaceEngineer, but that would be inappropriate so I won't.

I feel like this is the beginning of a new Space Engine era...

Living among the stars, I find my way. I grow in strength through knowledge of the space I occupy, until I become the ruler of my own interstellar empire of sorts. Though The world was made for the day, I was made for the night, and thus, the universe itself is within my destiny.

You are not the only one who feels this way smile

Can't wait for this feature to be implemented !

Every new patch is a giant leap forward!
I think 0.9.7.4 will be the best SE version ever (until 0.9.7.5 arrives of course smile )

OMG Vladimir, you're the best.

It allows to remove z-fighting artefacts on water shores, remove near plane clipping (so allows to approach to a space ship or planet surface to a distance of a few millimetres), allows to finally implementing particles correctly intersecting with planet surface (3d clouds, volcano eruptions, ship engines smoke etc). It allows to have a single z-buffer for the whole scene, which enabling possibility to implement shadows and deferred shading with all effects which it can introduce (hundreds of local light sources, 3d water with refractions, huge increase in atmospheric scattering performance, etc). Also, correct blending of large planet-scale particles with planets (comets tiles, and future accretion disks and jets). Did you think why I still don't implement all these effects? Because SE have too large scene scale to work with standard z-buffer.


This is amazing! SE became way more flexible! cry

Question: Do there are some disadvantages? Because... I don't know, Unity still uses normal z-buffer, and a lot of other engines too, why they don't use this one instead? wacko





The universe is not required to be in perfect harmony with human ambition.

Does it have a large moon? If so it's tidal heating that is warming the planet and not a bug. wink

Yay I can't wait to see what comes new with this!

This has been available on ATI relatively recently, and still (probably) don't work on Intel. For Intel, SpaceEngine will use normal z-buffer, or maybe logarithmic z-buffer (I working on it also). Probably this is why Unity don't use this feature (to save Intel compatibility); also usual game scenes don't need such huge accuracy of the z-buffer.

like orbital paths, or small moons inside rings. Fixing all issues with render order, like rings or aurora being rendered in front of space ship. Particle effects on planets and ships (smoke, clouds, rain etc). All modern algorithms which required access to the depth buffer (deferred shading, 3D water with distortion, SSAO, shadow maps(!), etc).

You have come far, SpaceEngine.





Careful. The PLATT Collective has spurs.

Seriously, one day people will mention the greats of Russia (Tolstoy, Tchaikovsky, SpaceEngineer) in the same breath.

Is there a compelling reason to continue to support Intel onboard graphics cards? The performance is dismal (at least for me) & I can't imagine the planned improvements to SpaceEngine treating Intel cards very well.
