Even the game thinks im on its surface..

No, the program says you are almost 1000 km away from its surface.

Hello! I'm kind of new here, but I recently discovered a quite strange system on .97, and registered just to speak about it. biggrin
So I was casually browsing throughout the milky way, when I saw "Yellow giant (quintuple)". FIVE stars? I need to see this!

After getting lost within the mess of barycenters, I sorted out the structure of the thing.


On the left, with the "UKE Ithilien" tag, a yellow giant and six mostly unremarkable planets. On the right, two brown dwarves orbiting each other and in turn orbiting another two stellar objects, a second yellow giant...


And a black hole...

And that's why there's a planet called "Ithilien" back there, because that kind of look like a flaming eye.

I choose this planet because while uninhabited, it is kind of tolerable if you ignore the thin atmosphere and a chilling 150 Kelvins. 1.0057g, no axial tilt, a beautiful and quite large moon, and a stunning view on a black hole that's a mere 685 AU away. And that's not the closest the orbits go (They intersect to be honest. Yikes.). Not the best place for a colony, but for a scientific outpost that's quite good. Because if the universe rates it five stars, you can't ignore it :P


On this picture you can make out the cluster of three stars and a black hole in the distance.

I've found a planet around a T9 V "star", that was orbiting a larger red dwarf itself, that put out more energy to the planet, than the brown dwarf did:

I don´t get how this is possible, but apparently this planet apparently has ice when its surface temperature exceeds 2000 Kelvin degrees



Even if its because of atmospheric pressure stuff.. it has 0.1 times the atmospheric pressure that of Earth´s, so i dont think that it is because of that

There obviously would not be ice there with 2000K surface temperature and a sun that fills the sky. The effect you see there is the result of how terrain rendering/palette works, giving light color to high altitude to make it look like snow-capped mountains. The palette (to my knowledge) goes by planet class, so it does not directly consider planet temperature.

Interestingly, if this were a real planet there actually could be snow, but instead of water ice it would be particles of rock. So if you think weather on Earth can be crazy... biggrin

Would this be considered a space anomaly?

It's the most extreme example of the terrain seams bug I've ever come across in SE. I first spotted it in one of my planets, from pretty far away (from "orbit", so to speak), as a wavy line across the surface. If you have good enough eyes and/or screen definition, you can spot it here, going from lower left to upper right:



I thought to myself: "the hell is that?". So I decided to take a closer look.

Here I was thinking: "Hm... some duality in tonality here. Maybe there's some height difference involved?"



As I got even closer, it became wiggly, and I was like "what the hell?!"



And then I got to the surface, and went "Wow! This thing is massive!"



It's as if some huge flaw split the surface, lifting one "plate" and thus creating a huge cliff. So I decided to follow it for a while.



Sometimes I got further away, sometimes I got closer, but it seemed to be getting smaller very, very slowly.



And then I got to a relatively flat area and saw this crater, cut in half by it.



"This is actually cool", I though then. "It could be used to good effect as a feature, if it wasn't so regular." And then, shortly after, it began shrinking faster, and becoming less defined. Here it's reduced to just a fuzzy line.



And not far from this spot, it simply vanished.

Quite a ride, eh?

I have to go there. That hole was made for me! cry





Careful. The PLATT Collective has spurs.

Maybe this bug is related to the cut storm bugs ?

I actually went back there to see exactly how high it really is.

Not very impressing, in fact. It's about 1 km high in its highest points. We have larger precipices right here on Earth. Still, had it been more irregular (both horizontally and vertically), it'd be very, very cool and quite credible as a geological feature.

I took two more pictures, both almost from the surface.

At the top:



(very weird zigzagy edge)

And at the bottom:

I don't have one. This is one of my own planets, not one of the procedurally generated ones.

Best thing I can do is to provide part of the system catalogue:



The inner part of the system is attached. This is in Saibaicom.

Oh, and I had meant to answer to this, but forgot:

I don't really know, but I find it unlikely. This feature is sinuous, wereas I've never seen a storm cut in any way but a straight line.

Then again, I've seen many times, mostly in small asteroids, this kind of discontinuity being also straight, so it may be.

No, I have seen the cut storms from near, and it was the same thing : a "cloud cliff", with a sinuous "pixelated" shape, like in your screenshots.

About asteroits, I think it is just very big craters. There's also a bug with the terrain atlas junctures.
