Re: Need help with star system for new conworld

First, Space Engine, while awesome, is not authoritative; It has several bugs (I believe the bug that calculates energy received by a planet orbiting a binary system still hasn't been fixed) and has many missing features and oversimplifications of physics. I wouldn't take "I haven't found any in Sp...

Re: Random Conworld idea thread

Cheers to user gestaltist , whose thread reminded me to mention my search for the most fascinating, remote worlds, which are located in exotic positions in relation to their galaxy. A planet thrown out of its stellar system will no longer be habitable, it will be a dark, frozen chunk of whatever it ...

Re: Need help with star system for new conworld

Quoting also your other thread: Hi guys. A new and interesting conworld is shaping up in my head. I need a specific cosmological situation for it, though, and I need some help with making the vision coherent and astronomically plausible. So here it goes. The star system is that of a binary star: two...

Re: Random Conworld idea thread

Very nice. Lovin' it. I had an idea about nanobots, something like they become the new "single-celled organism" - each nanobot a "cell". From there they evolve into a new "multi-celled" organisms, and a new form of life (probably been done, I suspect). Perhaps by the time they reach billion-celled ...

Re: Random Conworld idea thread

May I elaborate on my thoughts about the conworld? It will be a lengthy post, I am sorry for that. I like that... Very much so. It's an interesting idea to contemplate, sort of like Lem's the Invicible a rebours. I'd be hard pressed to come up with something that could wipe out all the nanobots wit...

Re: Random Conworld idea thread

Come closer, lads. I've been thinking about the following... In the far future, several million cultures were developing, they were living or going extinct, they exchanged information between four neighbouring, isolated galaxies in a cosmic void they were inhabiting. One of the cultures - or a few ...

Re: Map Making Program for My Conworld

I usually am playing with Space Engine to make maps for my world. It's a good tool for generating landscape, solar system, to describe seasons, characteristics of the orbit, moons and stellar neighbourhood. Though it's far from perfection. I especially like to place my world above the galactic plane...

Re: The random Wikipedia article challenge

Did I just see a click written in Cyrillic? Normally I use my own writing system ( example ), but on computers that is impossible, so I use Cyrillic, because Cyrillic allows me to use transliteration (1 original glyph - 1 Cyrillic glyph). Moreover, this language written in Latin looks even worse th...
