Someone should make one of those videos where you zoom out from the surface, and in the end the user realises how small the planet he were on actually was.
so how does this compare with opensource Space simulator Celestia ? [URL]http://www.shatters.net/celestia/[/URL] note: latest builds are from dev forum only [URL]http://www.shatters.net/forum/viewforum.php?f=4[/URL] which has many high quality addons for visuals SE-PUS - looks quite nice ... but i assume it's not opensource ;(
It's a lot like Celestia, but with randomly generated planets and stars (and more buggy-ness) Menkent 40, A life supporting moon of a gas giant.

[img]http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/5053/spaceengine201104061305.png[/img] God this thing is bloody awesome, I also found a planet that took 29 thousand earth years to orbit it's sun.
it seems like every life bearing planet I've found is a moon that orbits a gas giant
Somebody needs to make a game out of this. Would be fucking incredible colonizing all these worlds.
It's awesome but i can't to the surface on Saturn or Mars? I press CTRL + G but he just goes into the planet.
This is a fucking amazing simulator [editline]6th April 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=snijboer;29020236]It's awesome but i can't to the surface on Saturn or Mars? I press CTRL + G but he just goes into the planet.[/QUOTE]Press Shift+G

Nothing but icecaps and a few islands on this planet. [img]http://img17.imageshack.us/img17/7148/spaceengine201104061329.png[/img] I shall name this one goat world. [img]http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/6928/spaceengine201104061333.png[/img] Just look at all those mountains. [img]http://img16.imageshack.us/img16/3884/spaceengine201104061337.png[/img] Too bad you can't see this view on that planet, what with all those clouds.

oh yeah forgot the patch
[QUOTE=God of Ashes;29019862]it seems like every life bearing planet I've found is a moon that orbits a gas giant[/QUOTE] I think it's kinda realistic that way. Look at Europa, if the gas giant was closer to the sun it would be a waterworld instead of the icy moon with a huge ocean beneath the crust that it is today. We've already discovered a fuckton of gas giants orbiting other stars, and I bet most of them have moons.

It's really interesting. because I really haven't found a life bearing planet similar to earth. It's exciting
Was searching jazz on spotify, and chose a random song (it isn't actually jazz mind you). It was awesome cruising around the universe listening to it :buddy: Made a video with it. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_LZN4-dpto[/media] Song is called Birth Of A Star, made by Goddamn Electrical Bill. Thought it fit very well. :v:
Imagine if you could press Shift+G and it would descend you and switch to Outerra engine. :allears:

For so far i found nothing but stars that are suns. :frown:
[QUOTE=snijboer;29021779]For so far i found nothing but stars that are suns. :frown:[/QUOTE] It's called a solar system. Planets surround them. :v:
I was thinking of going around and taking some pictures. But unfortunately my graphics card does not want to draw atmospheres properly. :mad: [img]http://i.imgur.com/mB5mO.png[/img]
[QUOTE=snijboer;29021779]For so far i found nothing but stars that are suns. :frown:[/QUOTE] I think if you press ' it brings up icons so it's easier to find planets orbiting the stars.
Moon on top of the galaxy. [media]http://horobox.co.uk/u/Orkel_1302198792.png[/media] I wish there was more info on the worlds. Atmospheres etc.
A lot of these planets look like they have thick atmosphere
[QUOTE=Orkel;29021998]Moon on top of the galaxy. I wish there was more info on the worlds. Atmospheres etc.[/QUOTE] Like Mass Effect 2 style info. Also this game makes me wish our solar system was more interesting. It would be sick for earth to be orbiting a Gas giant in a binary star system. Then every few years we would pass through the rings of the gas giant, and the sky would light up from the crystals burning in the atmosphere. Is not the case though. Also anyone have good space exploration music?
Anyone found the forest moon of Endor yet? :v: No luck on my end.
