There is a object that i did not spawn

I was planning to go to the stars that you see when you leave earth but When i got That thing in my screen it was probably a part of my ship because i was out of the bounds in the solar system, Though it might be a glitch or a bug.

The title is also my reaction when leaving the theater after watching "The Last Jedi".

Orbiter does not support interstellar flight, because it gets into numerical problems once you get to a substantial distance from the sun. Graphical glitches like that are then possible.

It looks like it was one of the cargo pods that the Shuttle-A can carry.

This is very interesting. I can only imagine how complicated the new physics engine will have to be to support interstellar travel but I would be delighted to see a later Orbiter that can support it.

Divide the Universe into sectors, à la Star Trek, and then the math only has to work inside each sector? :shrug:
We would have the Solar System, with some empty space around, in Sector 001, and then X empty sectors in one direction until we come up to the sector which has the Vulcan system. :p

Yes.Or switch to fixed point math for the coordinates, while still using floating point velocity and acceleration. A 128 bit integer representing 1 mm accuracy would result in a 3.40E34 m universe... Or:

11,018,639,233 GPc

That's a lot bigger than the visible universe.

Eh, been there done that. It's rather easy to do if you are planning for that from the start, the difficulties only arise if you have to retrofit an existing ecosystem for it.
