A dreamable space simulation. Noctis: the latin word for "night", and the title of this simulator. Night, after all, is just the word we use to describe the absence of light while the Earth is turned away from the sun, and in space, there is no light but the distant pinpricks of ancient stars. Space is a lonely place, but it harbours some truly spectacular secrets; eerily glowing pulsars, enormous red giants, glittering, beautiful nebulae, and deadly, all-consuming singularities to...

Starways approximates the attracting mass of a whole galaxy's core with a single central attractor, presumably a black hole plus the stars forming the core, then applies gravity from that point to all surrounding stars. Star masses are ignored, allowing for very fast REAL-TIME, interactive simulations. Also, star masses have proven almost uninfluent for the final result of such a simulation: normally, adding effective masses to the single stars only determines the formation of clusters. Such...

_______________ What's Crystal Pixels? Crystal Pixels is a strange piece of software, that's probably the most fitting definition, although it may be classified as a "simulator". But it doesn't simulate anything real, nor anything similar to whatever may be real. Crystal Pixels is an old program, the coding of which started in 1994. Precisely, on September 12th, 1994. It is very old, therefore don't expect special graphics quality: it renders in a strange kind of "fluorescent...
