Weird graphical glitch with two Earth's eclipsing close up.

What is so glitchy about it?

there are spots and lines and model glitches going on, click on the image to get a better look.

Yes actually, the most prominent r near the North Pole, but those rings could be orbit lines. As for the dots,they r not very visible and so only a minor issue. This will inevitably be worked on in the next alpha.

this looks epic
also, i like the collision fragments
i really hope you guys make a mars crashing into earth to make moon simulation. i tried but the pieces just flew away and never formed anythin
more!

Pretty... Maybe we could have some images of a custom solar system?

We're actually in the middle of our third collision overhaul, rebuilding the foundation of the collisions system to be more robust, faster, and more accurate (and more directly linking the n-body physics with collisions). Nod to Thomas.

Once that's done, Georg is excited to begin an overhaul of the collision visual effects (glows, sparks, flashes), of which progress was frozen after we realized there would be a third overhaul of the core system.

And the past few weeks Georg has been working on crater impacts... throwing out the current system that just adds a glowing decal for a system that creates an actual 3D crater on the surface.

And we're working to make the comets and volatile trails more robust and interactive...

In short... lots of new stuff is in the works.

Great! It's really exciting to know that we will have something even better than we do now! Also a suggestion for the collision system: disable clouds for a certain amount of time, depending on the impact. Also an impact should lower sea level and add to the atmosphere

I'm thinking this is going to look a lot like SPORE... Hopefully not as cartoony!

on the first picture you can see all the edges on the model, which is kind of ugly. But, what would you expect? This is an Alpha, not to mention just a simulator. But it's too awesome to realize, keep up the great work, Dan and Co.!

Xriqxa, there are some videos on YouTube of Ubox 3. You should check them out.
This is one of my videos:


I am very well aware of your presence on YouTube. Your videos are great but we need MOAR! Why only two? You have promised us a third almost three months ago.
I apologize. I have been too lazy to make videos ever since I uploaded my last video.

*groan* this entire TOPIC is dying... is the US sequel going to become a forlorn forgotten idea in the realm of forlorn, forgotten ideas?

Grr... US2 is officially extremely dormant. What happened? Before I joined the forum posts were appearing like fireworks. Now, only a few posts pop up. Did I cause this? I feel like I did.

US2 is far, far from dormant. People do have lives you know, not everybody can spend all day everyday doing what they want and playing US2. But heres 2 little screenshots just for you.

Very nice. Not sure what the second one is, though.

I believe it is a solar flare. 8)

Stevoodran, no need to be rude to Xriqxa.  Some people missed getting on the beta and are excited about the version and this is one way for them to be a part of it until who knows when, the open beta or it's available for sale.
Thaaank yooou... Finally, someone who understands.

This is a perfect planet to represent Alkye. Except it needs more water.
