Largest change is a better star chooser, it understands greek shorthand much better now.
They made a large improvement in it.
As usual for me, VS2015, static linked, x86 & x64 exes only.
Albedo deprecation warning in log files, deprecated, old style albedo silently defaults to geomalbedo properly.
For amusement value, I set octree to 100GLy, which is larger than the observed universe.
If anyone wants any of my other recent tweaks added in, PM me, no need to pollute this thread with side noise.
I can make my own thread in parallel with this one if enough people want them.
Woah! Earlier yesterday, a member of the forum claimed he was able to allow stars at 45 GLY. And today, now we have a 100 GLY limit? Nice! And just to make sure constellation lines work in this commit, I'll go for a test runAdded after 9 minutes 16 seconds:
Well, I did a test run and you really did it! Thanks to the Star chooser changes, it now allows Constellation Diagrams to be shown once again. For comparision, I will show these images:
And with all those other features you included from other previous forks, especially the increasing of the allowable star distance to 100 GLY I gotta say, you're getting better and better my friend!
Keep up the good work!Added after 4 minutes 39 seconds:
And I agree with you. 100 GLY is equivalent to around 30 Billion Parsecs. Truly greater than the whole Observable Universe indeed.
