Note that the colour of an ocean made of translucent liquid is not necessarily blue : it just reflects the colour of the atmosphere

Not necessarily true. Water does preferentially scatter blue light more than red, just like our atmosphere does, so even if it were reflecting a neutral color it would still have a blue color, it would just be less noticeable.

every planet with life is represented by a Terra with green forests

Actually, SpaceEngine does render life with different colors besides green, including red, depending on the conditions of the planet.

With the new update (0.96) I noticed a planet in a binary system (White main sequence and yellow dwarf) and its class is "Scorched selena" with a whopping tempature of 1311.2K. I have never seen the "Scorched" before and I was wondering if it was new.

yes it is. this "Scorched" might not stay like that in the next patch.

What do you mean by this? "Scorched" is the new term for the hottest temperature class. There is no reason that I'm aware of to believe that it might be changed any time soon.

'Scorched' is the new word for the temperature class that was named 'hot' in 0.95. The new hot is the old warm, and the new warm is the old calid. Since this system makes warm placed in a lot more intuitive temperature range than it used to be, I don;'t see reason why it should change in the next patch either.

Scorched is one of those words where when you say it enough it starts to sound really weird. Still its more fitting than just "hot".

I love the new scorched planets, but scorched is just a weird word to see. It's a shame that there are almost no other good words to adequately describe such scorching planets. cool

I really like the new term ''scorched''! However another term could be ''deep fried'' or ''well cooked'' cool biggrin
Seriously now, what about ''burned'' ?

Okay everyone! I know you all have opinions about the temperature class systems, and you are not the first. The reason it is a bit awkward is because English really only has two words for describing temperature gradations in each direction (cool/cold, warm/hot). SpaceEngineer wanted a scale with three temperature classes on each side of temperate - a good idea. This was initially easy to implement for him because Russian has three words for describing temperature gradations each way. But translating them into English proved challenging. So he initially chose the word "Calid" to be the first point in the higher end of the scale. The problem with that is that calid is a word that is practically non-existent in English, no one knows or uses it, and it just made things confusing. So we set about trying to come up with a new system. It took time, effort, and a lot of discussion. Ultimately, the current one seemed to work best.

As always, input on this subject is most welcome. But I would ask you to please read the discussions that led up to this system before continuing, so you will have the necessary background (starting here): http://en.spaceengine.org/forum/21-33-4555-16-1334782276

Hellooow fellooow space junkies happy

I love the different types of planets and I'm veeery satisfied with the current ones. However suggestions are always welcome biggrin

Let me start a bit with the current ones and my suggestions for more:

Current:

Terra
Desert
Oceania
Gas giant
Ice giant
Ice world
Titan
Selena

My suggestions:

Vulcan (it might sound Star Trekkish, however these would be a type of hot global lava-flowing planets with very thin atmospheres and etc...)
Gas dwarf (pretty much the same as gas giants but less massive and smaller obviously)
Ice dwarf (would be the counterpart of ice giants)
''Snow world'' (most likely according to their climates as Temperate, Cool and Cold snow worlds)
Carbon planet (very interesting one wich seems to be lying closer to the galactic center and are rich in well... alooot of stuff, more or less like fuels and diamonds and others I don't fully know however but they are proposed, and typically would have thick hazy multi-colorful atmospheres in yellowish greenish brownish)
That was it for the moment, I'll try to gather more information about these awesome types of planets.
Wish I was a very skilled programmer lol.

[Moderator Notice] n3xt, a thread for this topic already existed here. Creating a new thread to discuss planet classes is unnecessary. Suggestions for changes and additions to planet classifications can be posted here.
Please try to refrain from creating a new thread for a topic that already has one. This is one of the guidelines laid out in the forum rules, which you may review here.

will there be lava worlds or volcanic worlds?

how would we rename "very warm"

Quote (HarbingerDawn)
Irradiated/Molten/Igneous would not work because they imply properties of the physical environment aside from temperature

Also, calid looks like a strange mispelling of cold, just saying, even if it is a real word.

I know you will eventually be improving the procedural generation for more variety, but the moons could definetly use more variation in the appearance.

Research suggest that plants on exoplanets would colored by the amount of light (energy) and the wavelengths wich are most abundant. Here on earth most plants use the blue and red wavelenght photons and reflect the green ones wich makes plants look green to us. The blue ones have the most energy and the red ones not so much but there are lots of those photons.

But plants could also be blue, brown and red or even black when light conditions are poor with most of it in the red and infrared range. The research also suggests that plants could even be like a mirror reflecting most of the light on planets orbiting brighter stars.
