That's a very dark station, amigo - what display/gamma settings are you using? Or have you turned the ambient lighting right down?

Ambient level = 0.05 as set by ZygoUgo for his excellent Cinematic Skies and Nebulae OXP. I like it.

I removed that OXP as its nebulae are too much for me - I did tinker with it once, but couldn't get it right.
I have ambient_level = 0.2; set in my game - dark, but not too dark. Ain't choice a wonderful thing!

Indeed! For me, there is something atmospheric seeing the passing silhouette of a ship against a nebular cloud.

For a courier, jumping straight into a bandit/Viper firefight is usually a bonus - one can slip quietly by...

... but in that lot at least three assassins were lurking, and just when I thought I'd slipped past, they latched onto my six.

Explosions! I love big explosions!

The second screenshot made me almost loose my breath, thinking you're using a sort of shady planets branch. Took me a while to figure out it's not a planet but the outer part of the big explosion shaded (almost) like an atmosphere.
BTW, congrats for your 6 year anniversary post! :D

Shady planets branch, eh? Here are a few teaser shots from that branch (note: the branch is very old, there seemed to be cases where atmosphere rendering had issues on certain cards and plenty of the rendering code has been changed since it was created. It may need a bit of work to make it compatible with the latest versions).

That would be a shame...

I am enjoying the default planets in 1.82 however.

Previously, some planets would just look bad to my eyes and spoil the others.
Now the 'bad' ones look ok and the 'ok' ones are looking pretty good :)

(I must have made these images too low-res as they looked better as raw screenshots :? )

Damn, that is a FINE screenshot. Do you have a high res version of that by any chance?

Oolite = Elite Dangerous in terms of graphic loveliness these days...

Not sure which one you are referring to, although I imagine it would be the reddish one in the asteroid field. If my guess is correct, then here you go: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwG6R5 ... sp=sharing

The original was taken in a 1080x600 window, so it's not terribly high res, but at least it's in png format.
