So I was playing around on SpaceEngine on my very mediocre PC and came across this view which I thought looked pretty cool so I screenshotted it (the image on the left). A day or so later I was watching SpaceEngine videos on YouTube and came across a video with the image on the right on it. I looked for the coordinates on the video but there was nothing there.

What are the chances of this? I couldn't believe it when I saw it, it's undeniably the same view, the chances of this are miniscule right? Am I the only one absolutely amazed by this?

Not sure what's so amazing about this. SpaceEngine is a simulator that many people play and the first thing many obviously will explore is the nearby planets and the rest of the solar system. Jupiter probably being one of the more interesting places. Ending up with a vista like this isn't difficult.

the thing is, that isn't jupiter, it's a random planet I found, it's light years away from our solar system

What if the game is programmed to give you one really good view on your first play? Or something like that.

It's almost like.....like.....there is a limited number of planetary bitmaps within the software. And....and....the algorithms used to generate new planetary systems aren't.....perfect?

>Am I the only one absolutely amazed by this?

Seems as if it isn't hard to amaze you, huh?

OP, go ask /vg/. Its a game, coded by a human, with errors. hell, the project is freeware written by a handful of people. make a donation at the website and maybe you will get more of the awesome quality this software brings.
