Hello,

orbits of selected objects usually appear highlighted red. I was in the Rigel system and remarked, that some selected planetary orbits remain green.

Moved posts from the 0.9.7.3 thread

Another strange incident occured. I was orbiting in a stable orbit around Rigel 3 in an altitude of about 450 km above the surface enroute to the apoapsis, when all of a sudden I found myself under the planet surface, still "orbiting" inside the planet with a speed of ~29 m/s.
I first thought the planet would've disappeared.
Using 0.9.7.4 beta BTW.

I got something similar to BetaRay. Big squares in the planet surface are missing when I'm approaching:

I hope your vacation was enjoyable, Space Engineer!

The new depth buffer is fantastic work!

This opens up the possibility of interior views on ships (cockpits, rooms, and so on) - but that will highlight the need for alpha blending texture maps for windows and HUDs and such.

Do you intend to tackle that soon?

Wait, how are you people getting all of these updates?

We're not getting them, just reading about them.

The last patch was 05, if I'm not mistaken.

SpaceEngineer, after you're done implementing plants and rocks on planets, can we please have caves?

Oatmeal_Spigeon, why do you want caves? So this can be a space-themed suped-up version of minecraft? XD just kidding...

I would have liked to see the total lunar eclipse of 28 september 2015 in the Space Engine. However, the Earth's shadow is not was cast the Moon. I looked at from every angle, but the Earth's orbit passes somewhat over the Sun, the point should be that passes in front of him. Therefore, there is no shade, so the eclipse is not visible.
Bug? or I did something wrong?

Oatmeal_Spigeon, unfortunately with the current rendering method is impossible. Planets has an heightmap that represents the height of the land in a particular point, this method can't be used to make caves, unless if you use holes and other gpu-expansive methods...

If SE was voxel-based (more or less like Minecraft) it would be possible smile

Brett001, if I'm not wrong SE can't calculate so accurately orbits, it would require a new algorithm, so there is nothing wrong with you actually.





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

(still don't know why everyone is doing this...)

I wonder how, I wonder why...
planets suddenly turn black, as you can see in the top of the attached image.

The missing terrain rectangles seem to appear, when I overburdened the computer by moving around too fast for example. So do the black planets.

If caves can't be added, what about having erosion/land formations affected by gravity? As in, an Earth-like planet with 1.5g-4g would have shorter mountains, smoother surfaces, and more fractionate continents; this would allow for some archipelagos/island planets. Though how extreme this is, again, depends on the amount of gravity: take Olympus Mons on Mars as an example.

Thanks! smile

I know that the SE rather space simulation program, not in the strictest sense planetarium program (such as Celestia or Starry Night), but it's a little disappointing that it has not been this  problem fixed since of 2011. I wanted to demonstrate scenarios in local amateur astronomers club about the lunar eclipse the with SE . sad
"This is a known problem. SpaceEngine handles orbits as Kepler ellipces, but the Moon requires a more accurate analytic trajectory representation. In some of the future versions I'll implement vsop87 numerical model of our Solar system, so the eclipses will be right. " wrote Space Engineer 10.12.2011.
