Planet goes BOOM!
« on: March 27, 2014, 01:53:33 PM »
It would be nice to see the death cry of a planet. For e.g.

1.

2.

And finally, 3.

There's no sound in space, I'm afraid. Could be interesting if the devs add them in, though, even though it's unrealistic, for the most part.

They can add music like in space engine

it'd be nice to just have some explosion sounds and whatever if you wanted to activate them. like Music (On/Off) but a note saying no music in space, but just for entertainment purposes

There should be explosion sounds if you are inside the explosion because sound propagates through matter

Yes, but it would be a very faint noise. To sound like an explosion, you would need to be very close while the matter is still dense enough for sound to move in it. But I like the idea anyway. I was thinking, why not have an on/off button? I mean, this is a space sim, so the default should be off

I'm not if this is true but I've read that sound wavelengths are emitted in radio waves, not in the wavelengths that travel through air...  :P

I definately think that US should have some sort of sound. Right now it is totally mute. However, I don't think that sounds on collisions are a good idea. I messaged Dan Dixon suggesting him to add a short tune in the intro and to add pop up sounds when you open a window. US REALLY needs sound

What? That's crazy! They are caused by vibrations that cause molecules or atoms to bump each other until they bump ur eardrum.

No, I ment the sound in space, there is rarely any air molecules to hit your eardrum so I was thinking that in space, sound travells in radio waves(that I forgot to mention -_-).

No, radio waves r actually low energy light.  :)

well I'm totally confused because sound does travel in a vacuum:

Oh, great! Now I'm confused! We'll, there will always be mysteries.
But anyway, I still think that the default for sound and music should be off. And sound and music should be seperate settings.

Here's another one, with awesome effects

(This is actually made by WNxBaal, not a TV presentation)

Nice. Perhaps the devs should add antimatter and replace "Explode" with "Inject Antimatter Core" or for Antimatter planets/stars "Inject Matter Core"
Just an idea.

 Here's another video, quite off-topic but this simulates a 500 km asteroid colliding with Earth:

There could be another option to Explode: e.t.c

It looks more like a 5,000 kilometer asteroid, not 500 kilometer.

No, it says 500 Kilometer asteroid in the video.

That video was poorly mistaken for planet x (or Nibru)  :(

"It's as large as the one that impacted 4 billion years ago"
And that was Mars-sized

No, I think you're confusing the Giant Impact Hypothesis to the video(but it was likely that the event happened 1000's of years after Theia Impacted Earth).

Besides, there were lots of giant rocks hitting the Earth 4 billion years ago(but please pay attention to what the asteroid looks like(because Theia once had an atmosphere)).

How can you possibly tell what had an atmosphere 4 billion years ago? Was it even possible for planets to have atmospheres back then?

Seems like there is a misunderstanding here. Commonly "sound wave" is referring to compression waves travelling in some material. Radio waves are electromagnetic waves which do not need a material to travel through. Radio signals can however be generated somewhere, travel as electromagnetic waves, be detected elsewhere and used to create sound waves. This is essentially what AM radio is.

The case of Jupiter, and various other far away objects, generating sound is a case of radio waves being emitted and transformed into sound waves in the normal hearing range of the human ear.

Another example of radio waves being transformed into something we can hear.

It says that the young EARTH had an atmosphere of CO2, Nitrogen and vapour, not Thea.

Theia probably had a similar atmosphere though.
