Hello all,
As I'm new at Space Engine, I'm trying to find Olympus Mons somewhere on Mars. I tried "Search" function and it didn't find. What is the best way for me to find Olympus Mons?

Many thanks, THartmann9374

Currently, there's no search function for locations on planetary surfaces. Olympus Mons covers a big area of the martian surface so it's not difficoult to search it "manually"

It's the volcano marked by the arrow in this image (this is not from space engine)


By the way, welcome to the forum. This question would have been more correctly placed in other existing threads that talk about similar problems (this forum has problems dealing with so many threads for little questions).

Rather than making a new thread for a simple question I'll post it here.

Can we put down markers on planets and have search capabilities of that? That would be useful for smaller locales.

Been suggested before, the answer is maybe someday in the future.

You can use such little scripts.

Code

// Olympus Mons
// omons.sc
// put in SpaceEngine\docs\scripts
// Open console, type:
// Run omons (without .sc)

//Time Current

GotoFast Mars
Wait 3.0
Track
LandTo 18.247 -133.173 4000
Wait 3.0
Untrack



Put it in 'Spacenegine\docs\scripts' and start it in the console with 'run omons'.

This and similar can be found in 'Example.sc', in the script directory.





Don't forget to look here.
