Composition of atmospheres

I don't know if this has already been said but....I'll give it a try as a suggestion....

so I've been seeing something missing from space engine...and that is the composition of atmospheres. atmospheres may contain different kinds of gasses and mixtures...and I think it would be cool if something like this was added.

examples would be:

Ammonia Gases
Carbon Dioxide
Mercuric Iodide
mercuric chloride

now not every atmosphere would be composed of just one thing but sometimes maybe a mixture, like Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide mixed with Ammonia Gases with a little bit of hydrogen....I know some of these might be hard to find possible in an atmosphere but you never know the universe is full of possibilities. heck they found a planet made of diamonds and graphite for crying out loud...its called 55 Cancri E its pretty cool...

I understand if something like this cant be added or isn't really needed or interesting, but its an idea.

if anything is scientifically incorrect my bad...correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, SE is still using a fairly early treatment of planetary atmospheres. It considers pressure and temperature based on the planet's properties, but doesn't state or compute the composition yet.

Although not explicitly listed in the Todo list, it is pretty well implied that this is in the works. So you can expect to see some of these cool atmospheric data in the future. smile

Fear the storms of melted iron. They can ruin your day (and the paint work in your ship)! biggrin

Wether it be in SE or in general space videos / websites, I would like to see more content regarding atmospheres. About 2 years ago I did not even know that Titan had ~3x atmospheric pressure at surface level! What a surprise.
