I would love to see waves, eventually


It was suggested just a few pages ago. SpaceEngineer said that will be implemented, of course. He also said that he could even implement them right now, but that it would move back 0.97.1 release date back by as much as 2 months.

I'm actually anxious to play with the HUD that was featured in the earlier screenshots.


I, on the other hand, am most anticipating the new moon generation, and the changes to water and additional types of planets with life are a close second.

Ok, since we're posting what we're jazzed about:

- Increased variety of Life planets
- Animated water/subsurface fog
- Spacecraft with lightmaps

Guys, this is a development thread, not a request thread.

I was wondering about the new water with noise, I guess all the planets with oceans have now this new effect?
Is there a possibility that some worlds with strong gravity, heavy fluids and weak winds can't have such small waves effects on their ocean's surfaces?
Even on Titan, the gravity is low, the wind blows, but they have not find any waves yet :
Quote
Here on Earth, bodies of water are rarely still. Breezes blowing across the surface cause waves to ripple and break; raindrops striking sea surfaces also provide some roughness. Yet on Titan, the lakes are eerily smooth, with no discernable wave action down to the millimeter scale, according to radar data from Cassini.

However, there seem to be signs of wave action on the shorelines of 'Ontario Lacus':

As reported in the article quoted by Solaris, maybe we have just to wait for the right season to see waves on Titan. wink

Agreed! The universe and its properties are the true draw for me, and everything that can be generated. For me, the water is the most fascinating to me, so far. That, and the changes to the textures! I just tend to get excited and "OMG SHIPZ!" over spacecraft. happy I need to read back several pages. I've obviously missed some things. wink

A number is just a number. They mean very little, at least at this point. All that matters is that it's a bigger number than the old one smile

And there are very few second-decimal-place digits left before it hits 1.0 - which usually indicates a feature-complete computer program.

Space Engine is astounding and mind blowing as it is, but it is not feature complete. I'd say it's still in alpha, maybe on the cusp of beta.

The 0.9.7 series may come to represent the close of the Alpha phase, and the 0.9.8 series will lay the groundwork for beta. Then maybe 0.9.9 will be revisions that come out of the beta testing process, leading to a 1.0 release, which Space Engineer seems to intend to be some kind of hyper-real scientific space exploration game.

That's at least a few years off. This is all supposition, of course. I know nothing.

I agree, but maybe SpaceEngineer was too hasty on changing numbers wink

What about the diffraction spikes for planets?

They've always seemed really, really out of place to me.
