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


How do you export textures??

There's an option for it in the start menu I think.
Anyway I don't really understand the feature, at least when I export them they don't seem like the ones in the game, and some of the file types are scary. You probably have to put them on top of each other with layers and blend them in some special way and color magic.

I was reading about that and SpaceEngineer said that as of now it does not export water :|

If the one with the enlongated orbit is a gas giant (which I think is highlighted anyway? not sure), it looks like it should have thrown the inner planets out of the system.

ikr



I'd like to live here even if the gravity is 0.15 earths and atmosphere, is 0.93 earths and has oxygen.

Is that a desert planet?

SE is still downloading for me, about an hour until it finishes.

Nope it's a terra, mostly water. The second pic, the clouds obscure everything

The texture is probably from Space Engine.

It looks repetitive.

Classics are always awesome, right? Cresent Earth btw.

Anyways, was playing something else for a while and right now I'm figuring out the controls, etc. Yes I'm reading the manual, but a tutorial would still be nice.

Anybody know how to name an object? Other than saving the location that is.

Some screenshots.

1. Binary planets within a binary star system, both of which have life I believe.

2. A hot jupiter. It grabbed my attention because it was paradoxially called a hot ice giant.

3. A nice looking terran world with life on it, two of its moons are asteroidal moons.

1. Terran moon of a gas giant, with life on it.

2. Same system as the first picture, take a look at the atmospheric pressure and consider that Venus's atmospheric pressure is 92 atmospheres. One could literally swim in that thick of an atmosphere, provided that it doesn't crush you first of course.

3. Classic tidally locked planet.

4. Morning on a living terran planet around an A5 V white main sequence star. Honestly though, arent A spectra stars too short lived for life to really evolve? Anyways, this star happened to be called UMa, so its in the Ursa Majoris constellation, but which one, I have no clue.

Check this one out. All of the ones with life that I've seen so far have been within the range friendly to carbon based life, or Terran-type life forms if you will. So, this was a surprise to me that this was so far out there.

Theres a more normal warm oceanic world in the same system with life on it.

life could have come from another planet/object (abiogenesis)

using the mass-lum relationship, the lifespan of an a5v star with mass of 1.8 solar masses can be calculated to be about 2.3 billion years (plus or minus several hundred million years).

it's uncertain how long it takes life to evolve because we only have one example, and there could be great variations depending on the environment. i would guess 2.3 billion years may not be enough for intelligent (sentient) life to evolve on it's own.

For abiogenesis (or maybe you're mixing it with panspermia?), if you're talking about the cold (more like frozen, unless the liquid is something other than water) terran planet, theres the problem of what form or how life would evolve on such a cold world. Alternatively, it could be an Europa analog.

For the planet with an A5 V spectral type sun, it seemed to have even less water than Mars since the water present were in various big lakes. I figured that life on it would still be microorganisms.

Also, there are hints that life actually started very early, within several hundred million years after the Earth formed (or at least after the late heavy bombardment anyway). It's just the long lead time between life getting started and multicellular organisms evolving that makes it seem like A spectra stars wouldn't allow higher life forms a chance to evolve.

Oh yeah, for the tidally locked world, that one has two selene size moons (649km and 789km diameter), and I'm not sure if those would be enough to subtly keep a rotation going for the planet.
