Hm? Dismal? On my Intel HD I typically average 30-40FPS on SE which is very good for what I'm use to.

^ How? For me patch 5 just up and crashes right after the splash screen.
@Vladimir: I love your new features too, but I really really hope you can solve this issue. Please please please please please...!

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.

Well, with a new architecture for intel chips coming out now, performance will be a lot better with those chips, and even run SE pretty well. So, even though Intel HD may seem weak, the more recent chips are pretty powerful in regards to handling Space Engine.

Do you have to compromise visually?

That I was not aware of. Thanks! smile

I can second the objection to "dismal." Sure, it's a level behind most dedicated cards, but even on all default settings I can run 0.974 patch 4 with FPS values nearing 200 (and not just in empty space).

Also, just because one person is running on a big gaming rig and thinks the rest of us plebian losers should be left up the creek doesn't mean we agree. SpaceEngine ran fine on Intel cards right up until the very latest patch, proving it's not something like The Witcher 3 that has to require top-of-the line cards, so it's unfair to cut out a big chunk of the population that could be enjoying and promoting it.

Thirded. While I do suffer startup crashes on my own machine, they are completely random, but when it doesn't crash, the game is GLORIOUS. Patch 5 seems to be the best working edition of Space Engine so far. And since I've had to remind myself to keep graphics DRIVERS up to date, planets in the Sol system stopped showing up black and glitchy, and the Square Diffraction spikes seems to have gone away for the most part as well. smile

So I must say, SpaceEngineer has done a really good job for Intel chip rendering and I do believe I'm not the only one who appreciates this. biggrin

Huh. On my laptop (which has an NVIDIA 860 on it) it runs terribly on the Intel card. :\

While working on my system surrounding Kepler-16, I noticed that the game does not differentiate between Capital (upper case) letters or lower case letters. So when I tried to create a moon around the planet Kepler-16 b, the game put the object around the star Kepler-16 B instead.

My temporary work around was to create a copy of ExoPlanets.sc and rename "Kepler-16 b" to Kepler-16 ABb". So perhaps in a future version, known circumbinary exo-planets might be named as "<system> AB b" or "<system> (AB)b" instead? smile

Yes they must be named like "Kepler (AB) b" by convention, but sometimes this is ignored. There are too little circumbinary planets discovered to date.

Very understandable, thank you! smile

And semi-related, is KIC 9632895 b (Kepler-453 b) a retrograde orbiter? I sped up the time rate for viewing the system and I noticed b orbited in the opposite direction as its two suns.

Probably. I didn't made all systems manually, just processed the database.

Docking with mothership in progress. Few shuttles are already successfully docked.



Shuttle model must be updated to add a docking port in its tail. Or maybe editor module "shuttle deck" must be changed so shuttles could have docking ports on their top...

Some ships have design problems and must be updated (X-wing - engine exhaust intersects the habitat modules):

And already we see the fruits of the new reverse depth buffer...

Upon seeing this I leaned away from my screen and exclaimed "NO WAY!", despite it being the middle of lunchtime at school.

SpaceEngineer, this is amazing! I'm so pumped! biggrin





All you need in life are space games and typhlosions.
