Too bad, otherwise it's beautiful. As it stands now though, for me it's unusable.

The biggest problem with quality textures is their size.
As a desktop background, the application should NOT consume large mount of memory. Quality textures consumes a lot.

The same thing happens with asteroid belt. Too many objects loads CUP.

Though, the application definitely should be improved. We are working on it.

Thanks for feedback!

All comments/suggestions are very welcome!

A new version of the app had been released.

We've made some optimizations. Hope it will consume less CPU and look better. Especially asteroid belt.

My opinion:

The asteroid belt isn't too great looking. Looks more like grey blobs. Should be darker, more in shadow.

The planets still look a bit cartoonish because of a lack of cloud cover. They are just too bright.
