Many ideas for improvements

Hey guys, here's some ideas I have for improvements.

  • Enable camera collision with geometry
  • Better features on planets, e.g. procedural alien trees/forests/waterfalls
  • Weather on planets, your ordinary earth weather/super tornados/gas giant storms/acid rain/etc
  • Low chance meteor hits
  • Better galaxies, they all look like the old renders from Carl Sagan's Cosmos
  • More varied galaxies, they all look very similiar
  • More galaxies, there's a lot but, see: http://www.lowbird.com/data/images/2011/01/z0m813-4.jpg
  • Stars don't move around the galaxy and galaxies don't move
  • Advanced civilizations/life on planets
  • Faster loading of stars in galaxies, I can fly through some galaxies and only seen a few hundred stars because of the loading time
  • Extrasolar planets
  • Stars which aren't orbiting the galaxy/have been thrown out/are moving in a random direction
  • Better clouds
  • Nicer looking nebula
  • Nicer water, possibly waves? Tsunamis? Massive waves on planets with very big and close moons
  • Auto speed, basically what this would do is as you got closer to a planet the game would adjust your speed accordingly
    to stop you flying through the surface.
  • Higher poly landscape, I know you're improving the texture detail but I still see a lot of jagged edges.

Thanks for reading it and of course most of these aren't exactly for the next version, but possibly sometime in the future?

I like your suggestions, though most of them are already stated here:


I would really like to see better performance before weather, etc.

SpaceEngineer has a load of Stuff to do but he slowly makes progress. It's just a matter of time till we see more awesome features. I hope our Suggestions and Comments motivate him. smile

This is obvious, and all in my TODO list.

By the way, most discovered exoplanets are already in SE. You can find them by name in search menu (the last database was updated 11 January 2011).

I am slowly making progress with engine, but currently I have much work in my daytime job too. Besides, Space-Engine doesn't make me any monetary profit, So I must earn money elsewhere.
