What should maps look like IF they get added?

IMO, they should appear in a small window (like the F2 menu) and show heights as well as real colours, along with a little blip showing where you are in relation to the surface.

If you have any ideas that aren't on this list, don't hesitate to put them below.





Along with fezes and bowties, brown dwarves are cool.

I completely agree that Space Engine should produce maps of the planets and moons you discover. Also, there undoubtedly should be a way to export them as images, preferably in layers, so the ground could be one layer and clouds another. But why just terrain? Why not have full-color maps, biome maps, height maps, AND average temperature maps, along with the ability to toggle between them? Variety is always welcome!




All you need in life are space games and typhlosions.

I like the idea of planetary maps, and I also like variety of display layers and user choice in selecting them. So I vote for all except 2. smile

I like the idea of map, but I think that it should be not just "click this button in planet properties to see map". We should initially see very low-rez version, which can be increased in details by either satellite probes flyover, or either by direct landing. Exploration!

Exploration!

But Space Engine is not a game, but rather a planetarium. So gameplay features like these have nothing to do here; unless a game is actually made out of it (donation targets).

Isn't there a map feature kind of already put into SE? I swear I downloaded the surface map of a planet before.

Those aren't the same thing. Space Engine allow you to put custom textures (that is, the color and elevation of a map) and have it displayed in Space Engine. But we are talking here about having other maps, such as average temperature maps.
