My hammer maps won't have shitty default sky boxes anymore.
That height maps thing also sounds awesome for use in games that accept them.
Infinity team aims on first finishing engine (i heard they found some investor or companies interested in licenses) ...
then the game (Quest for Earth) ... originally was the game priority
while Space Engine is primary focusing on the engine itself ... and maybe later game(s)
We're not supposed to go into the middle of the galaxy, right?
you can if you want. It doesn't crash as often as it did in older versions. I visit there regularly.
I hope this turns into a little game much like Noctis IV
I haven't read this in a while, good to see it's still going!
Redownloading the game now.
This runs perfectly on my laptop with an i5 2410 and a GT 525.
So, my conclusion is that this game just sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. A result of it being in a stage of heavy development.
Hey is anyone else having trouble trying to access the site? I'm desperately trying to download 0.95.
Is a higher or a lower LOD better?
I flew into a globular cluster.
I was looking around the Large Magellanic Cloud, about on the edges, and I found this beauty.

This desert shouldn't be so bad to walk in.
This desert's pretty hot, actually
I can't get good planet surfaces but still really pretty, even with the fires to my graphics card
Both Temperate Life in nearby systems
Also, I haven't seen it posted here but there's some screenshots from the test version the dev's currently working on.
So this is the new infinity now it seems
also just got it recently, hot damn I am amazed by the places where I can go to
I just love listening to this while my planets generate themselves
correct me if i'm wrong, but aren't black holes supposed to be small compared to stars?
because i just found one with a diameter of roughly 19AU.
Just dropping by to say that the developer has begun even more work on 0.96.
In addition to procedural galaxies, redshift, spaceship support, some other small additions and bug fixes, terrain is also being improved.
Also, to the person above, that shadow bug happens when the engine deals with shadows from really far distances (ie a planet casting a shadow on another planet, or a binary star being hid by its companion star)
What settings have you got yours on to look so good?
What are your specs?
I've got a HD 7850 OC'ed 1200/1475 and a 3570k, on LOD 0 it does load pretty quickly but when I try it at LOD 2 it still takes a good 20 - 30 seconds to load.
I love Space Engine, can't wait for spaceships
Yeah, I saw the changelist but I have not seen those pictures yet.
He doesn't have a release date yet, but I'm guessing before the end of august to early September.
How do I go about acquiring this? Every time I go to their website it becomes blocked due to malicious items on the site or I just can't connect..
Terrain is looking as good as the Terragen program now, and that program used to take upwards of 45 seconds to render a single image, given the quality settings
This is starting to turn into a really badass version of Noctis, hooray
This as well. These were way back though, a few versions
Edit: Speaking of videos, I've made two slow and shitty ones myself.
