I just got the game, and everything is going fine except that I can't actually see planets, only their atmospheres. This applies to planets, stars, and asteroids. Does anyone have any ideas?

SYSTEM SPECS:
OS: Linux Mint, running SE through Wine
Computer: 21.5" late 2010 iMac
Graphics: ATI Radeon 4670 256MB

I realize that it's a miracle that I could get as far as I did, but the game isn't really playable without this one key feature.

I think it's because you have only a very little amount of video memory on your graphics card. It's recommended to have at least 512.

Upgrading to a faster GPU with more memory.

You can't expect anything worthwhile off of a $35 GPU.

After a bit of research you may be able to upgrade iMacs but the GPU you have on a Windows PC is $35, on a Mac it goes for $130. Best recommendation is to stop using overpriced Apple products if you want to do high performance games, unless you like Macs and have thousands of dollars laying around.

I've had this mac for 5 years, as soon as I have money and/or a valid reason to get a new computer then I'm switching to a PC.
