A second “leak” released recently, reveals concept models of space legs Thargoids. This fresh image shows a different take on Thargoids, compared to the previous leak of a year years ago. Frontier also respond to cheat claims.
A new job placement at Frontier suggests that AI Ground Based Vehicles are coming to Elite Dangerous in the future. The development requirements are for navigation, combat and a number of other things. The link to the position can be found below.
New Exo-Planets found in Teegarden’s Star. A little over 12 light years away from Earth, a set of new exoplanets have been discovered by the Institute of Space Studies of Catalonia. The star around which they orbit is called Teegarden’s Star which itself was only discovered in 2003. With this new information to hand, I thought it would be fun to jump in to two of the most popular space simulators, namely Elite Dangerous and Space Engine and see how the Teegarden’s Star system is represented.
Teegarden’s Star then is interesting, because the two newly discovered worlds are very likely within the habitable zone of the star system. This means the location is conducive to both water *and* life. Of course, even though the planets *have* been detected, there’s no data to suggest their makeup, which means we don’t know if they have atmospheres etc.
Both Elite and Space Engine rely on real world star data for the stars closest to Earth…this means that in terms of what is actually currently known, they should be accurate. Where there are gaps in known data, the software of each game fills in the gaps with procedural generated worlds and stars. Both softwares have an accurate astrophysics model, so they can often be surprisingly accurate when filling in such gaps.
