Nice work -- and damn that was fast. :)
Do you need help? What have you tried?

The first screen shot reminds me a lot of my current project. I, however, do not have such pretty graphics :(. Your gameplay differs from mine though, from what I can see.

Looks very nice.

The first and last shots are my favorite. I love the majesty of a good spacescape.

What tools did you use for level editing, mesh modeling, what scene manager ?

Do you load your scene from a file, what format did you use?

Thanks

I am currently working on a large scale space game am interested if you do any sort of paging, also how you render far away planets without them getting culled (do you use billboard?)

I export MAX files as osm and use a custom loader. This is a weak point of my system as I really need a true editor. Right now I have to interpret what my artists setup and do the materials by hand.

The render distance is infinite. Since I'm doing things by hand I do a lot of tricks for good FPS. The planet in the last screenshot is unlit, for example, using an emissive map and dual channel uv scrolling for rotation. There are also a lot of billboards.

Wow... very nice.
Would be very very interested in seeing how it all fits together as i'm trying to create something similar... i'll be uber-happy if i can get it to look nearly as cool as yours.
