Beautiful picture. I have a preference for the first. Thank you for the astronomical information. I find the attention to the starry sky interesting.

Yeah you just need to uninstall it on the last machine (especially if you plan to sell/gift it away), and then just install it on the new system. I am pretty sure TG just needs a active internet connection when you add the key (? ? ?)

Thanks for the encouragement folks. This exciting new advice will have to keep for another day.
@Dune @WAS i will post next update with these tweaks. This roughness on models I wasn't aware of. Thanks. 

@DocCharly65 I'm indeed curious myself. I think trees might be the way to go. Enlarged low Polly shrubs didn't cut it at just over 12 miles away. 😐

Really cool! I really like the ground displacement distribution and colouring. The second looks pretty awesome too. Like some sort of red algae stuff.

It looks somehow similar to a distant galaxy. But if so distant, the redshift should cause more red colours instead of greens.
The dust bands and the spiral comes out pretty nice. Like to see more of your work and I'm very glad to help you to speed up things.

The picture format makes me also thinking... it looks more interesting if the object is not in the middle. I'll keep that in mind.

Hmm interesting thought. I was just going by NASA's interpretation of gasses. Nitrogen and Hydrogen will produce greens, Oxygen blues, and sulfurs reds.

I figured nitrogen and hydrogen gasses will be closer to star clusters or the source of all it's gasses, while the sulfurs emissions which are constant will have been settling around the stars, singularity center, etc, and then be pushed outwards by the event.

Coloring in Photoshop/Affinity is also proving difficult due to the intensity of masks I can create to do the colouring, so I am attempting coloured nebulas in TG like Denis did.

Image Sharing / Proxima Centauri b
Last post by raymoh - Today at 11:13:45 am
Again an astronomical topic:
Two snapshots of Proxima Centauri b, the nearest "Earth-like" exoplanet. Proxima Centauri together with the double star Alpha Centauri physically forms a triple system.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxima_Centauri
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxima_Centauri_b
However, Proxima b is probably not a "second Earth". Its parent star, a red dwarf, undergoes unpredictable, strong energetic bursts of radiation, called ,,flares" ( protuberances, coronal mass ejections). These flares can be stronger in the UV and X-ray range than corresponding outbursts on the surface of the Sun. Also the other brightness of the star can increase dramatically during such an outburst. All this can strongly affect the habitability of the nearby planet "Prox b".

The two renders show on one side a "quiet" Proxima, on the other side the same area at an "active" Proxima. An (assumed) life form there helps itself by emitting the excess energy in the form of visible light during active phases of the star, similar to the bioluminescence of terrestrial organisms.
Through the atmosphere, thinned out by many eruptions in the meantime, the brightest stars are visible, especially of course the two bright stars of Alpha Centauri.

So I found this earlier, and almost forgot about it. Glad I'm still up cause I probably would have forgotten by normal.

This may literally come in handy: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/create-a-personal-robot-that-alerts-you-when-a-product-is-back-in-stock/

You can create a free account with Uptime Robot, and then use the URL of a product you want, that's out of stock. Then use the phrase "Out of Stock" or whatever it is to search for. And when it doesn't exist set a notification. Better directions on the link.

Wow that hallway is very well lit. Lighting looks pretty darn realistic.
