I’ve been playing with Space Engine for several months now and have gone through a couple versions of the software in that time, so I figured a video was past due.
This is just what it says… an engine to simulate space through procedural generation. It is spectacular. And FREE.
It is currently in beta form and you can tell, since there are some pretty serious stability problems on all sorts of systems. But when you get it working on a machine that can handle the millions and billions of objects this generates, it is truly a sight to behold. A good sight, that is. I’ve always hated that expression. Like, it could be an awful sight. But this is not. It’s friggin’ awesome.
