    Btw, Sol looks round on my computer.

    gotta be my settings then – ill have a look when i get a moment – it is round when i get closer 😉

    be nice to see some sun spots now and then – rotating ?? – do the stars rotate in Pioneer? – i’ve never considered that 😳 – but with a blank texture how would we know

    ill have to jet off to Sol again and have a look – should be able to tell now with textures

    some nice touches, the cities look amazing – some great work eveyone

    i did notice that the sun had a diamond shape rather than a sphere – whats that nursery rhyme about a diamond in the sky?? – oh yeah twinle twinkle little star – well i have added a pic so you can see what i mean – also the stars seem to ‘eat’ my ship – must be my settings – ill have a play with them later and see if i can get a more rounded sun and less greedy Epsillon Eradani

    there really needs to be a new employment type – astro photographer 😉

    i can spend ages just getting the right shot – so much for killing, mining, smuggling, trading, pirating …. this is the life for me

    the beauty of the Pioneer universe ……………. 😉

    now where did i put that wide angle lens …..

    happy landings

    that looks great and some auto generated terrain features would add to the immersion of the sim

    my only reservation is ensuring it doesnt add too much extra pressure on the abilities of the varoius range of PC specs people have

    this said my mouth is watering at the potential 😀

    great work 😉

    Thanks Philbywhizz,

    you are of course right – and hopefully myself and other non programmers can continue to feel part of the evolution of this project – i think everyone feeling valued within a community makes for a far better end result – i know from reading most of the post that this is a very friendly co-operative and one that i am sure will continue to grow from strength to strength

    cheers

    thanks Geraldine and s2odan,

    appreciate the reply….

    Pioneer is special, i never realised how much until this last week of playing – if this is Alpha i cant wait till beta and then full version

    just flying over the terrains, oribiting planets and stars is amazing and a real tonic to my day job. 😀 😀

    i cant imagine the work that has gone into this project and i just wish i could help with things in some way, but i know nowt about programming. i’m just a player, a consumer at best, but this is an amazing project for old 40something geeks like me 😳 😀

    many, many thanks to all

    you are keeping the dream alive

    Hey

    If it helps for future reference I am running Pioneer under Win XP pro 2002 edition with SP2.

    AMD Athlon, 64 x2 Dual Core 5000+ 2.61ghz with 2gig ram

    Nvidia GTS 450 Graphics card

    I have everything set on ‘high’ with planet detail ‘very high’

    Screen res of 1280×800 (although it will go higher without any major hit of FPS)

    Shaders, HDR and Planet textures on

    It runs smooooth!!! 😉

    No issues so far – although I haven’t got out of the Sol system since I downloaded on Saturday …. I’m enjoying the scenery of my local region of space at the moment and trying to capture some screenshots for posting at sometime……. 😀

    Happy trails

    Rob

    sounds like a good idea to me….. can be confusing remembering which add-on you just installed – and SSC seems to be THE place where everything comes to so… yeah great idea
