i dont really think alot of big live would be able to live there due to its extreme gravity. How far away is it from its sun and what sun does it orbot i mean type of star.


The gravity isn't that extreme, only 1.6 g's. It orbits very close to its star though (.204 AU) which is an orange dwarf.

anonymousgamer, g. wow thats very big thats probably the biggest planet that a stone planet can become i dont really think alot of big live would be able to live there due to its extreme gravity. How far away is it from its sun and what sun does it orbot i mean type of star.


It's also an oceania, meaning that gravity wouldn't be much of an issue. For massive organisms, I'd imagine the biggest would be some kind of colonial organism or maybe something that makes floating constructs (like alien coral maybe?).

The biggest creature on Earth is the Blue Whale, but maybe, just maybe, multicellular organisms can grow much, MUCH bigger on such a planet, things that would make the Blue Whale a mere snack to them.

Actually its a fungus that has grown over several miles wide.

It's the biggest individual oceanic organism anyway since I was talking about aquatic organisms.

Well, in the case of fungi the concept of an individual is rather vague; it's one of their many weird quirks that set them apart from other organisms. You can consider one of those huge clusters as a single organism, or as millions of them. So you can call fungi the largest organisms on Earth, or whales; presumably it doesn't matter to the fungi.

Watsisname, nice!

I was wondering, how do I visit a place from those photos? Like in the picture above: RS 0-9-45537084-1642-5-4-1042-22 B6
Do I need to edit the "places.cfg" file? Or Am I wrong and there´s another way? (easy I hope)

Does anyone know?

Glorymajor, just copy-past the RS number (the one you wrote) in the F3 windows (find object)

For the places, you have to copy past this kind of code into your places.cfg and you will have the precise location/time :

While it may not literally be a contender for this challenge at a modest 69000 km diameter, I still want to post Proxima 5. Why? Well, its sun, Proxima Centauri, is only 57600 km in diameter! That's right, the planet is larger than its sun! And it's only an ice giant, not even a proper gas giant. XD

For rings, it's hard to judge the size of the rings sometimes, but this one is definetly one of the bigger ring systems that I've seen:

You can if you export the planet's code and look at the script. Or if you just fly to the edge of the rings and look at the distance to the planet.

I found a very strange solar system there are two planets that that comes really close to each other so close that you can clearly see there landscape. IT happens about every 4 or 3 or 5 orbit it probaly happen because when they get close the outer planet speeds up and get into such a close orbot. I dont remeber the distance and name cause my space engine crashed right when i started to wright this so i will never find it again sad. But im suprised one of them havent become a moon. Edit i managed to find it in my log. The planets name is RS 0-9-14013812-623-4-7-601875-1 A4
