All done in-game without any post processing.
Such shots will look really great in 0.9.9.0 with PBR.
I almost thought this was a hyper enhanced shot from the film... well done!

What is the location? I must know!
How do you get your Terrain to generate these kind of bump-maps and High res textures? I have set most settings to max in Space Engine and it still looks crap :<
Thanks in advance.
Still waiting on this in VR.
Nah mate, it's a megastructure called a Dyson sphere. They don't occur 'naturally' in SE, so I'd be interested to know how OP achieved this shot, whether it's a mod or something he made himself.
A Dyson sphere is a hypothetical megastructure that completely encompasses a star and captures most or all of its power output. The concept is a thought experiment that attempts to explain how a spacefaring civilization would meet its energy requirements once those requirements exceed what can be generated from the home planet's resources alone. Only a fraction of a star's energy emissions reach the surface of any orbiting planet. Building structures encircling a star would enable a civilization to harvest far more energy.

It's a mod that I did myself.
The script for a slightly different Dyson sphere is here: http://forum.spaceengine.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=71&start=15#p742
But there may be problems with SE 0.980 / 0.980_e,
This is not a planet but a star surrounded by highly efficient solar panels to harness almost 100% of the stars energy.
Which is called a Dyson sphere.
If you wouldn't have posted "(0.990)' I would have thought it was a real picture. Damn.
That's a given. However since I haven't been following the news I was wondering if their was a date known yet. If there isn't you could have just said no.
I don't follow space engine news too closely. So we have any sort of rough ETA for 0.990?
Wow ! Can't wait to try it out ! Wondering if Jupiter would also get that displacement map for his gas surface ?! Awesome !

I'm guessing this will probably also help it get more attention. Let's get space engine closer to the next goal ^.^
Edit: Shit. I was expecting like 25 upvotes. Y'all fuckers gonna make me broke.

Does OP know votes go into the hundreds of thousands now...?
Also, he is clearly on a porn alt account, BRACE FOR BAMBOOZLE
Shit, with the new votingthingie I feel kinda bad for voting, if he's not bamboozling. Imagine it hits 10k.
Edit: I update every second and it's like 5 bucks/sec.
In that speed I'd be broke after the first five seconds...
