How accurate and realistic is SpaceEngine?

I would really like to know to what extent the Space Engine compares to the real world.

Procedural generation;
On what criteria is a planet generated, and for that matter - a sun?
What determines what kind of planets will likely exist in a system?
What determines the planetary details (ie gravity, atmospheric density, proximity from the sun, mass, diameter, moons etc)?

Or is it just all completely random biggrin ?

Btw this must be the best computer program I have ever come across, thank you so much for creating it!

To all others on the forum, Hi smile

Planetary systems are generated using many physical dependences, but not accurate as I want it to be. The future development is to introduce analytical or even numerical simulation of planet formations and further evolution.

Ah, I see.
May I ask what overall physical dependencies?

Mass-radius relations for planetary bodies, luminosity-radius-temperature-mass relations for stars, orbit stability testing, Roche limit testing, rotation rate - mass relations, rotation deceleration due to tidal forces, atmosphere pressure - density -temperature relations, atmosphere dissipation with time, and much more smile
