What's new

  • A new coordinate system and camera
  • The Map of the Universe
  • The console, various console commands allow you to change settings, there are also commands that duplicate the functions of the autopilot
  • Console commands can be executed from the file - it is possible to create a scripts that controls the flight
  • Updated catalog of dwarf planets, exoplanets, nearest stars, etc.
  • Some new galaxies models, new textures for some Solar system bodies
  • A count on the number of planets with life has been added to the selected star's information table
  • Significantly improved performance in dense regions of galaxies (the nucleus and spiral arms)
  • In the Orbital review mode (Right-drag) rotation is always doing around the current object, but not around selected one
  • Showing vectors of a planet: its own X axis, the direction to the parent body, and the barycentric velocity
  • Collision detection of camera with all planets
  • Spacecrafts: motion control, gravity forces, collisions with planets
  • Procedural galaxies with large-scale structure of the universe and the redshift effect
  • Supporting of the indoor scenes in the *.map format ("Radiant" editor of games using the Quake engine) for buildings and ship interiors (maps are available as "scenes" from the console)
  • Anti-aliasing on the border of the cloud layer on the planets
  • New forms of landscape on planets
  • Smooth transition between textures of different materials on the surface of the planet
  • Changed the algorithm for calculating landscape level of detail - detail close to the camera is always high (as in LOD 0) for each LOD
  • Exporting of skybox (panoramic screenshot)
  • Exporting of procedural textures of planets
  • Editor of the procedural parameters of the planet with the script export function
  • Optimization of the interface, the active window is moved to the foreground
  • A new interface design
  • The "game" style of the Main Menu
  • Various control panels
  • Some settings for the Planetary System Browser
  • Binding keys and saving them to the config file
  • The "Copy" and "Paste" buttons in the Locations menu - for easier sharing of coordinates via the forum
  • Supporting for Windows clipboard in the text input fields (Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V), for example, in the Search By Name menu (F3)
  • Real brightness of the planets (lighting dependency on the distance to the sun)
  • White dwarfs, neutron stars, black holes - isolated and in multiple star systems
  • Binary gas giants
  • New model of the atmosphere with a green hue
  • New class of a planet - Titan (ice world with a hydracarbon ocean)
  • Fully cloudy planets - Venus-like warm deserts and Titans
  • Automatic procedural generation of atmosphere, clouds, water and rings for catalog planets, if these paremeters are missing in the catalog
  • Dynamic star coronas
  • Probabilities of double and multiple stars, stellar remnants, brown dwarfs, gas giants, etc. in the config

    Additional Comments

    All good, even with open source drivers. Except one thing - shaders. On an ATI card (R600 family) shaders often fails and this leads to corruptions in rendering of the objects. With Nvidia + proprietary drivers everything runs OK.
