My biggest request would be to add more of a sense of scale. All the planets look the same size when your right in front of them. I wish that when you went to the sun, it was absolutely massive, to were it takes up your whole field of view. Give the option to use something as scale, for example, place the earth next to it, so you get an idea of how big/small something is. Otherwise, I really enjoyed it.
I really love a planetarium in VR but the sky isn't accurate for my location. Can you fix that?
Worked great yesterday. Can get it to run today. Crashes every time on start up.
Well done app - the exploration feature provides interesting information about many celestial bodies. Being able to revolve around the celestial bodies is nice, but would like to be able to revolve on more than one axis for viewing the poles. The historical feature provides neat details about a couple missions so far (I would love to see more, similar things, even if only photographs to highlight other landers/ongoing missions). The sky map was the feature I wanted to try out, but feel somewhat mediocre about: 1) the location settings did not work properly (outside, the moon is above the horizon, in-app, it's below - I am in Reykjavik, Iceland - maybe some settings that would show the detected time/location for confirmation, and the ability to recalibrate); 2) I would prefer to be able to turn off the graphics behind the constellations as they can be a bit distracting; 3) it would be nice to be able to filter out sky objects by magnitude, to adjust the viewing experience to what one might actually see given their current conditions; and 4) add in some satellite tracks. I have enjoyed it so far, but would find it to be a more useful educational tool with these other features.
I think the moon's bright side is the other side. I cannot see the Tycho crater which is wired.
I'm using Google Daydream on my oneplus 3T (rooted) and the app doesn't open in VR mode. Instead, it opems in flat screen mode and doesn't recognise my controller.
