Re: Trying to customize Sol

It's less that I think it's requried for fun, more that it's very incongruous there are so few. There's several things that I think should be there, and this applies to other star systems, like cities with no spaceport. So that cities != spaceport. But also from a believability point of view some of...

Re: Trying to customize Sol

I disagree with that, I think everywhere is under populated with stations :)

I liked the "hometowns" mod which adds loads of them to Earth alone and think we'd definitely have lots of bases throughout the solar system and on asteroids, Moons, floating in atmospheres etc.

Re: Trying to customize Sol

It's a crazy system and I can't find if anyones written down the maths so here goes: Earth radius in km = 6371 Mars radius in km = 3396.2 3396.2 / 6371 = 0.5330717313 However our system uses a fixed-point number system to avoid differences in represenation on various platforms... basically PC/Mac/Li...

I'm happy to have more detail going into Sol, it can set a good example for us to raise everything too.

TinkerPilot

At the moment I know nothing about this beyond that it's in VR and integrates with real world items https://www.tinkerpilot.com/ The teaser trailer looks fascinating, also there's currently someone stood in the middle of our offices with an Occulus Quest on playing the star wars Vader Immortal game :D

Re: Solar Power Facility

Oh and as for the polygon count, honestly these days I have no idea. You're only going to see one of these at a time and it'll be a few draw calls at most. I did a test using a star destroyer about... 8 or 9 years ago. That thing had over 5 million triangles and still ran at over 60 fps up close. Th...

Re: Solar Power Facility

Variety of sizes is good, I like the larger one too.

To avoid the polygon count explosion try using tubes instead of trusses. If you want more detail, that looks like complex trusses that are too tight to fit a ship into, then you can texture them.
