I am a total newbie in Space Engine world. I downloaded it one weeks ago, and have played it since at least 3 hours a day. I just LOVE this game. It's like my dream coming true tongue . So far, I played it on my lousy backup computer and it already looks stunning. I shall get my main laptop back very soon from a friend. I really want to squeeze all the power from my little monster to see what Space Engine is really capable of.

My laptop:
Intel Core i7-4810MQ
16GB, PC3-12800/1600Mhz DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M w/8GB GDDR5
BTW, it is connected to a 1080p projector.

I have read the official manual thoroughly. Given my configuration, I shall be able to play it on LOD 2, please correct me if I am wrong. Also, what I am really confused now is about the main.cfg settings. Can someone please give me some advice on that part. wink

Thanks for your time!

you can use maximum. But read in forum how to set it the best way. There some additional mods that can make graphics better.

// OpenGL settings
VSync 1 // vertical synchronization (0 - disabled, 1 - enabled, 2 - auto)
AnisotropyLevel 16 // anisotropy filtering level (0 - disable anisotropy)
LineWidth 2.0 // lines width
DepthBufferMode 0 // Z-buffer mode (0 - standard, 1 - log in vertex shader, 2 - log in pixel shader) (remove cache to apply changes)
ShipDrawMode 1 // use 1 for DepthBufferMode = 0, and 2 or 3 otherwise

// memory settings
VideoMemoryDynamicDetect false // use auto detection of available amount of video memory (VRAM) in runtime
VideoMemorySize 8000 // video memory size to use if VideoMemoryDynamicDetect = false 1536
VideoMemoryMaxPercent 90 // max video memory consumption (percents)
GalaxySysModelCacheSize 20 // do not change this!
ClusterStarModelCacheSize 200 // do not change this!

// interface settings
GUIMode 2 // text info mode
GUIMessageTime 2000 // splash message duration (milliseconds)
GUIPlanThumbSize 120 // size of solar system browser thumbnails
GUICursor "cursor.*" // cursor texture
GUIGraphCursor false // use textured cursor instead of system cursor
GUICursorSize 16 // textures cursor size
GUIJournalSize 100 // maximum size of autopilot journal

// texture rendering settings
TRMaxImpostors 8 // max number of impostors
TRMaxSkyBoxes 1 // max number of skyboxes
TRFloat true // use floating-point impostors (for HDR)
TRImpResolution 0.500 // impostor resolution (fraction of window width)
TRSkyResolution 0.750 // skybox resolution (fraction of window width)
TRImpUpdateThreshold 0.005 // impostor update threshold
TRSkyUpdateThreshold 1e38 // 0.0006 // skybox update threshold
TRSkyMinFOV 20.0 // skybox min FOV
TRSkyMaxStep 1e-7 // skybox max velocity (normalized on object's radius)
TRBlackHoleResolution 1024 // resolution of black hole billboard
TRLensFlareConvRadius 3 // "super" lens flare convolution radius
AND
LoaderMode 2 // loader mode: 0 - immediate, 1 - interleaved, 2 - asynchronous
