I was looking for planetarium software. At first I tried Celestia, and a bunch of other software...but I wasn't impressed. Then I discovered Space Engine! That was years ago. I remember there wasn't any music in the first version I got..and my laptop back then could barely handle anything in 3D so I couldn't fully appreciate the capabilities of Space Engine at all. So I became sad...I couldn't even use the program I got because of my low-end laptop! sad But now, my laptop is pretty okay. It's not a strong, bulky gaming laptop, but it can still handle a lot! I was able to use SpaceEngine a lot now, it's just so beautiful!

I don't remember my very first session, but on the first session on my new laptop (using 0.9.7.3), SE placed me in front of a very green planet! I miss it a lot, actually..I forgot to mark the location. cry

Scott Manley did a video on Space Engine a while ago, that's where I heard about it.

I cant remember how i discovered it but it was when it was in its infancy. I introduced space engine to some people online and i guess they loved it and it spread to more people form there.

I found this program from a note in the celestia addon file. It said; "Space Engine is the best 3D space simulation program in the world!!!"

Came across Space Engine the day I went to see The Martian. Prior, I've been watching loads of space related documentaries on YouTube. Decided to run a search on simulators and stumbled across this video: https://youtu.be/UxEnZ1qVjPc
Needn't say, felt like a child on Christmas morning biggrin Beautiful piece of software. One of the coolest moments for me was visiting Gliese 581. One thing to read about a particular system. But having the ability to fly to it, interact, and land on planets. Very different perspective.

I'm not really sure when i discovered Space Engine. I remember it was something about it when my friends watched Scott Manley once but i thought you needed to pay for it or something because it looked so awesome and i like forgot about it when i came home. Later someone started mentioning it in the Steam forums of Space Engineers (another game i play) and they talked about it and linked me to this site where i found out it was free! Downloaded it at once and i have been toying around in it when I'm bored or feel for space exploration since then. And now it is even more awesome.

I was and am currently addicted to No Man's Sky. Soon after it was announced, I was anxious to get my hands on anything even remotely like it, which led me to this game. I can definitely say that it has scratched that itch, and I hope to see it even further improved as time goes on.

So was I to an extent. Much easier than space engine to install mods, honestly XD





Living among the stars, I find my way. I grow in strength through knowledge of the space I occupy, until I become the ruler of my own interstellar empire of sorts. Though The world was made for the day, I was made for the night, and thus, the universe itself is within my destiny.

One night I was thinking of how awesome it would be to explore the universe and be able to explore the planets and such and if there was a program out there to do that. Started searching, can't quite remember but I think I came here directly from google or maybe a video on Space Engine. I tried using celestia but it wasn't what I was looking for, a little while later I found space engine.

My first session after going from the milky way galaxy to another galaxy, I was like, "Um woah, holy crap". I couldn't stop using it and played for hours with endless exploration.

I stumbled over it in a post on Quora, where someone asked if an image was a real photograph of a black hole, and someone replied that he thought it looked like it might be out of Space Engine. That brought me to this site, and I'm glad it did.
