Well, after exploring many deserts and terras, I can safely say that, starting from v. 0.9.7.4 p3, mountains, in deserts, are more frequent and higher than those on terras. Terras, in other words, are flatter than the deserts.

In version 0.9.7.x up to version 0.9.7.4 p02 this was not the case. It's a deliberate feature or a mistake?


Some pictures to show what I mean

Tipical "Terra" in 0.9.7.1





Tipical "Terra" in 0.9.7.4 patch 7



This Terra is 90% flat. Just some little hills ...



Note: atmosphere and clouds are disabled in order to show in a better way the ground.

Again.

This "Terra" in 0.9.7.4 patch 7 is awesome. It's similar to our Earth, but it's almost flat :(



The entire continent above is FLAT, just some low hills ...



Note: atmosphere and clouds are disabled in order to show in a better way the ground.

IMHO, mountains of the old version 0.9.7.1 were the best ... wink

Have you changed anything in your installation? For me this is planet a Oceania.

Indeed o_O
I haven't really noticed any new differences between deserts and terras myself, but if terras are flatter now I'd say it's probably a feature - terras in general have thicker atmospheres and more severe weather, which contributes to faster erosion.

But also look at our Earth-- we have lots and lots of mountains!





Living among the stars, I find my way. I grow in strength through knowledge of the space I occupy, until I become the ruler of my own interstellar empire of sorts. Though The world was made for the day, I was made for the night, and thus, the universe itself is within my destiny.

Yes we do. But they've got nothing on Olympus Mons, now do they? ;P

Yes, in universe.cfg I've changed a parameter.

ProbOceania 0.50 // Oceania -> Terra probability (original is 1.0 - in 0.970 was 0.5)

In versions 0.9.6.2 and 0.9.7.0 "ProbOceania" was "0.50", so I kept the same value. wink

ProbOceania 0.50 //

So it looks to me similar, not the same, I have a few more lakes.
But this planet is nearly 2 billion years older than the earth, no wonder when the erosion has made him flat. biggrin

tongue biggrin

Jokes aside, it would be interesting to have some clarification from SpaceEngineer, if/when possible wink

I am worknig on new black holes. They now have accretion disks, and you can approach them up to the event horizon and see how Universe collapses into point above you.
Next step - add red/blue shift effects.

I don't understand what's happening on last 2 screenshots... Is it kind of singularity or what? Did You mean it is possiblle to cross the event horizon now? Anyway, amazing work as always(^^

Edit: After reading Your post few times... Its a view from black hole's "surface", isn't it?

OMG that's awesome! SpaceEngineer, will every black hole have the accretion disk or just some of them? Also are the accretion disks flat like planetary rings? :)

You're right! It's the same effect you can see on this video at 4:50.






The universe is not required to be in perfect harmony with human ambition.

WOW, looks really incredible SpaceEngineer!!
Isn't this a quasar? I always thought black holes with accretion disks are quasars but maybe I mix something up there.

A quasar is a supermassive black hole at the center of a galaxy with an extremely bright accretion disk. There are many black holes with accretion disks which are not quasars, including Cygnus X-1.
