Yes we do. But they've got nothing on Olympus Mons, now do they? ;P

Have you changed anything in your installation? For me this is planet a Oceania.


Yes, in universe.cfg I've changed a parameter.

ProbOceania 0.50 // Oceania -> Terra probability (original is 1.0 - in 0.970 was 0.5)

In versions 0.9.6.2 and 0.9.7.0 "ProbOceania" was "0.50", so I kept the same value. wink

So it looks to me similar, not the same, I have a few more lakes.
But this planet is nearly 2 billion years older than the earth, no wonder when the erosion has made him flat. biggrin





Don't forget to look here.

tongue biggrin

Jokes aside, it would be interesting to have some clarification from SpaceEngineer, if/when possible wink

I am worknig on new black holes. They now have accretion disks, and you can approach them up to the event horizon and see how Universe collapses into point above you.
Next step - add red/blue shift effects.

I don't understand what's happening on last 2 screenshots... Is it kind of singularity or what? Did You mean it is possiblle to cross the event horizon now? Anyway, amazing work as always(^^

Edit: After reading Your post few times... Its a view from black hole's "surface", isn't it?

OMG that's awesome! SpaceEngineer, will every black hole have the accretion disk or just some of them? Also are the accretion disks flat like planetary rings? :)

You're right! It's the same effect you can see on this video at 4:50.






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

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

WOW, looks really incredible SpaceEngineer!!
Isn't this a quasar? I always thought black holes with accretion disks are quasars but maybe I mix something up there.

A quasar is a supermassive black hole at the center of a galaxy with an extremely bright accretion disk. There are many black holes with accretion disks which are not quasars, including Cygnus X-1.

Thanks for the explanation. So are there black holes without accretion disks?

OMG cry surprised . And I thought Doctor of Space and JackDole's work on black holes and accretion disk was really good. Not implying that it is not wink . But this.. this is beyond our wildest dreams.

That's something I've been missing. Now only remains the question, when I get down to the black hole, I will then also pulled in the length? biggrin

Yes, but if this happen, SE will crash together with Windows, and all data on hard drive will be destroyed. So don't try to cross the event horizon :)

Only some black holes will have accretion disks.

Quote Salvo ()

Yes they are flat right now, but maybe I will improve the code to support volumetric disks.

Quote JackDole ()

In future updates, ships will have a lot of possibilities to be destroyed: ripped apart by tidal forces, evaporated by strong acretion disk emission, or by 1 million degrees plasma, crushed into debris moving at near-c velocity, etc. There will be almost to chance to cross the event horizon.
