I have a challenge for all of you people playing Space Engine. Now, I know there have been threads with the same topic before, but I decided to start my own one. So, the challenge is to find a planet like earth.
Rules:
1. It MUST have a atmosphere
2. It must have a temprature under 100 C, and higher than -50 C.
3. It must NOT be a moon.
4. It should be orbiting either a single star OR binary stars.
5. Post screenshots, and if you want, the planet's id so the others can visit it!
The planet can be from ANYWHERE. Not only from Milky Way, but also from other galaxies!

I'll start off with a quite-nice looking terra. It has both terrestial and marine life:

13 Celsius sounds quite cold, but it's not TOO cold. So it wouldn't probably be much of a problem to live on it.

Earth's mean temperature is 15 degrees Celsius so 13 is very similiar to our climate smile





Love SpaceEngine!

Lucky for you my friend I got you a private planet.

The atmosphere is way to low for human colony without gas mask/spacesuit

Actually, that's 12 degrees

Ostarisk, he means the air pressure is too low for humans and only way to survive is pressure suit
the air pressure on this planet is like to be at altitude of 17000 meters on earth.
almost 2 times everest height

I regularly challenge myself with finding some decently convenient Earth twin, sometimes it is good, most of the times not.
Star browser with filters helps this a great deal, since there are thousands of stars around, so maybe it is a bit of cheating. And of course, the closer planet to earth, the better.

I am now using the Steam released version and testing some stuff I usually do.
I don't really know if this one is compatible with latest public patch on the site, but there's a chance it is not.



So far this one is pretty close approximation to the Earth-like planet, with not-so-thin atmosphere, ideal gravity and temperature. Distance is just under 30 light years, and overall ESI is very high for planets in SE. The only problem I find there, is a new feature of simulator - atmosphere composition. It seems to be almost impossible to find worlds which can support people without "gas masks" (general name for rebreather devices). Most of the earth-like planets are 90-100% CO2, but there are also exceptions with mostly O2 or CH4 atmospheres, or more strange ones. Some of them are outright corrosive. Even CO2 is poisonous in any significant concentration, and N2 atmospheres are really rare too.

I am pretty sure there is a possibility to find something to Earth N2 + O2 mix, even with current (early) system of atmospheric calculation - after all, there's billions worlds out there to search - but nobody will ever find them. I have not asked Engineer about this model, but I'm sure there will be a lot of improvement in it over time.

I found a terra in the Wamilly galaxy for the custom universe.

How about this terra? Little bit on the cold side due to eccentricity but it will do.
