Solar system HD
30.07.2016, 10:52

This Solar System HD addon contains hi-resolution maps of some planets, moons and asteroids of the Solar System. It increases level of detail of some Solar System's worlds many times compared to default SpaceEngine installation (see comparison gif below), or replaces default low-quality jpeg textures with the hi-quality png ones.

For terrestrial worlds (Mercury, Venus, Earth, Moon and Mars), there is even more improved textures available - the Solar System Ultra addon. Note what it requires this Solar System HD addon to work properly.

To get information about resolution, sources and credits please read this pdf document.



These textures will not make the level of surface details on Earth or other worlds similar to a procedural planet. They have a limited resolution (up to 200 meters per pixel), and this will be the maximum level of detail for their worlds.

HD material installation path



i am having trouble downloading the torrent file. i get a 'timeout' error when i click on the torrent link and save-as.
is there a way around this other than downloading the texture packs individually for the different objects?
thanks for any help on this. love space engine so far, cant wait to get all the addons installed.




I have downloaded both solar HD and solar ULTRA as apk files in ADDONS directory, and it doesn't work.
none of the planets got improved graphics. is there a way to install those apk files or what?

how would i install the HD package ....? i mean where should i put them ? please help

Hi, are torrents still working (Solar system HD et Ultra) ? 2 days and still "pairs connecting" the others site torrents work fine. TY for the job done !

how do I install it? I put the files inside the folder in addons, or just the "solar system hd" folder?

How much does this and the "Solar System Ultra" addon affect the performance?
