@Darvince, yes, you could, but what if it's bigger than 6.1 MB?

So I finally built myself a gaming PC and I'm absolutely loving this game. 

One question:

Would installing this game to an SSD improve load times for landscape textures?

No idea, i guess it might, but i suggest asking on the space engine forum for a better idea, (this is a forum about universe sandbox after all!)

Probably. I put an SSD (solid state drive) in my laptop and my start up time (power on to Windows login screen) went from 30 sec to 15 sec.

A SSD is going to improve anything that requires hard drive access. In Universe Sandbox 2 (almost) all the textures are loaded at the start of the program, so start up of Universe Sandbox would get faster, but would have little effect after the first 10 seconds or so.

Space Engine loads planet textures everytime you go to a planet, so it would probably be faster.  Though I suppose it could all have to do with the GPU.

Except aren't all the textures procedurally generated? In which case they're would not be loading off the hard drive.

0.96 is released

I declare this planet officially epic.

Edit: I exported the texture and cloudmaps from the planet and made this texture. Could be used in Universe Sandbox.


Here it is in Ubox... Don't ask what happened to the oceans. :I

0.96 is pretty cool, but I really hate that there's no longer a Magnitude menu.

It's still there, press F7. It just allows you to view more objects at larger distances
