Wouldn't ships in interstellar space be pitch black


To give a number, intensity of starlight is about 0.0002 lux, at least in our stellar neighborhood. About 10x fainter than airglow, and 1000x fainter than moonlight.

Looking through SolarSys.sc, I've noticed that Pluto has two Greenhouse entries in the Atmosphere tag. Is this intentional?

So... with universal coordinates for ships, can we travel trough multiple stellar systems now?

You can do that even in 0.971

Quote Vilfate ()
And how about catalog comets with parabola orbits... Are they rendered now as well?

No. Comet are completely different thing. You forgot that comets, unlike ships, are procedurlaly generated, so there may be trillions of them in a single galaxy. How to compute motion of all these comets? Obviously, you can't decite if comet is visible or not to render it, until you compute it's coordinates.

I've found another there bugs:



First,if we edit the radius of red gaints, they would looked very strange......Well I don't it looks bad because it's details make it look more blazing and realistic. smile sad
Then,

Can you see that strange line? If you can't see it clearly, you can see this image that I have marked with the red line and compare with the previous one:

now you see, the bug on displaying the sky area caused a "Sky line".......... cry

I think there have been more things to be improved for the stars at present ( simply with current SE shaders), while some of which are actually new issues since 972.
//Because it's all about catalog stuff, some might be so minor that no one has ever reported.

More images are to be updated later [right here] cry
(my poor home laptop supports only until 0.972 due to its ATi 3400 Mobility with 255Mb VRAM,// I still run a dual monitor with it for school work wacko )

`"Zirconium stars, carbon stars, etc. (Catalog "R_","S_","C_","N_" spectral types) are actually variations of Red Giants, while they are rendered as spherical as a "huge red dwarf star", especailly on Mira A, where this... plus gravity darkening, makes a hamburger like this...


editi found a past post about such stars in the image dump thread

What the heck are zirconium stars?



`Wolf-Rayet stars, e.g., r136a1, is presented rather ...strange and is like a giant egg due to the surrealistic big sunspots under low exposure levels.

this is image from 972 while i've confirmed that it still looks like that in 974 so far

Sounds like it really lacks the gradient effect..... wacko

I left landed on a planet and i minimized the program.
When I returned some time later the planet was so :v







*Space Engine 0.9.7.4 BETA
*All Video Drivers updated.

Patch 03
Download (5 Mb)

Changes:
- Better function to determine stellar class if it is invalid or missing in the catalog
- Added satellite of Quaoar
- Button "Start" on Video capture dialog changes to "Stop" when video capture is in process
- Ship engines jet rendering
- Smooth behind camera for ships
- Space ships are now rendered in the interstellar space
- Space ships are now showed in the Wiki
- Simple ship editor
- Updated default ships
- Button "Teleport here" in the Ships manager is replaced with the "Hyperjump here"
- Button "Teleport here" in the Ships manager is available in the UFO cheat mode
- Blinking cursor in the text edit boxes
- Finished Wiki description editor, supported standard shortcuts like Ctrl-Left, Ctrl-Shift-PgDn etc, text selection and copy/paste
- Increased length of the first column in the Wiki data tables
- User and default Wiki descriptions are saved in separate files
- Implemented custom defines for glsl shaders
- Some similar shaders are merged into a single file (custom defines are used at compilation time to produce different shaders)
- New binary star systems added

Bugfixes:
- Fixed change of the display mode and refresh rate at SE startup
- Fixed climate smoothing on a planets with a thick atmosphere
- Fixed a lot of stars with wrong/error stellar class in the catalog
- Fixed camera velocity indicator
- Fixed star motion blur when changing distance with left + right mouse drag
- Fixed star motion blur for ships in hyperspace
- Fixed some bugs with automatic ships hyperjump
- Wiki descriptions displays tabulations
- Fixed specular spot on ships
- Fixed atmosphere height on a tidally heated worlds
- Fixed sudden stopping of ship rotation when changing orbital orientation mode
- Fixed visual artefacts with atmosphere and water on oceanias
- Fixed blinking LOD of a planet when Wiki for it is opened
- Fixed Overbright slider initialization in the Magnitude/brightness settings menu

PLEASE READ THIS AND DON'T REPORT AS A NEW BUGS!

Known issues and limitations
- Long engine jets are cut sometimes, especially on long ships
- Engine jets are disappeared when camera is inside them
- If switch to or build a new ship, its engine thrust is set up to the last ship's value
- Wiki text editor have strange behaviour with the newlines (think of them as "invisible characters" in the end of line smile )
- Wiki text editor have problems with text selection (one extra or missing character)
- Wiki text editor don't support double click and mouse drag of the selected text

Fantastic patch, seems like the performance has improved quite a bit with this one and those ship updates are even better.

Would it be possible, maybe even as an optional cvar, to enable the ship engines effect instead of thrusters while using UFO mode?

HIP 45296 6.1 seems to be doing something weird. smile

I am getting some strange atmospheric artifacts in this version now. I am on an integrated graphics card by the way.

Wow! So much more than was expected! Absolutely amazing work, Vladimir.

I've found one issue so far - the galaxy sprites for NGC 494 (and probably other galaxies) go crazy occasionally.


More images here.

Not sure if this is my card or what. The ship's textures loaded properly once I flew it out of that galaxy. Next time it happens, I'll grab the log file, I got excited by all the new features and forgot to this time.

Though it's strange but why my Oceanias still have bugs? wacko

Yaaay, interstellar ships~!
Next it'd be nice if when one builds a new ship, the new ship spawns with the same world-space velocity as the camera, so that when I "launch a shuttle" by building one next to my mothership, it doesn't immediately whoosh away at 12 km/s xD

That looks like the new hyperjump animation! biggrin

Jokes aside, this patch looks very nice!
