JackDole's Universe

Thank you very much for moving my last script into "Community ADDON: Exoplanets" this past weekend. I understood that all new exoplanets, exomoons and updated scripts on existing exoplanets may be posted there as long as they are real. I had worked on WASP-12 b's exomoon for some time and ...

COMMUNITY ADDON: Exoplanets

IONIZED PLASMA TORI AROUND WASP-12 B HINTS AT A POSSIBLE EXOMOON? In 2008 astronomers discovered a extrasolar planet WASP-12 b revolving around a solar-type star 800 light-years from our Solar System. They determined it was a Hot Jupiter with Mass 1.41 times and Radius 1.74 times that of Jupiter, wi...

I really like your recent work on Tabby's Star (or KIC 8462852) published here. Grey space aliens and Klingons will love you for it! Also, I found possible age error in the stellar system HD 164922 as compared in SE 0.980 with that of Wikipedia: Stellar parameters:                                Spa...

COMMUNITY ADDON: Exoplanets

This exoplanet has largest rings that extend to 0.5 A.U. and orbits around a star called J1407 400 light years from our Sun. For comparison, Saturn's rings extend to only 0.001 A.U. but there is a equatorial ridge on a distant moon Iapetus that once get dust and rock from much more massive ring syst...

POSSIBLE EXOMOONS AROUND 1SWASP J1407 B? [color=#ffffff]Recently astronomers suspected existence of the exomoons around 1SWASP J1407 b, WASP-12 b, Kepler-1625 b and especially MOA-2011-BLG-262L (on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/exomoon). They were able to confirm 1SWASP J1407 b as a Super Jupiter w...

General questions about SpaceEngine

How do I prevent duplicate copies of the same screenshot on SE's Full Editor? I see two copies of a screenshot each time I posted one on online editor here. And I found that Notepad++ does not permit making sc files, so I had to use standard Windows Notepad as usually before. Always a hard work but ...

Help with creating Mods and Addons

I got a zip file for Wolf 1061 from the archives of SE 0.973 and 0.974, which was wrote by someone else, and installed .sc files of Wolf 1061 and Wolf 1061 planets in the addons/catalogs/planets and addons/catalogs/stars for SE 0.980. I realized that Wolf_1061 baycenter file was creating a duplicate...

JackDole, your Tau Ceti system with four confirmed exoplanets (as reported in http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/08/170817095549.htm) look very interesting. I did notice one funny difference with Tau Ceti f's atmospheric pressure...in your posted photo the planet was "temperature terra&q...

10235 I have not observed that yet. Can you give an example of this? I had deleted the .sc file for HD 10180 j accidentally and had to remake a new .sc for that exoplanet in the HP 10180 (or HIP 7599). I was unable to repeat the problem about SE 0.980 moving the files back into its export folder wh...

JackDole, Thank you very much for your help on Epsilon Eridani and HD 10180 b mods. They work really great. I wonder which works best for making .sc and .pak files, like Microsoft Windows Wordpad or even Wordpad++ from Cnet.com? I can see that SE 0.980 sometimes automatically return .sc files contai...

I have noticed that a giant daytime cyclone for a new exoplanet HD 10180 b I had made for HIP 7599 (or HD 10180) was somewhat off the center of planet's dayside by more than 120 degrees into the nightside. How do I make the cyclone to center on the daytime, if anyone know of right method to do it? T...

UPDATE ON PROCESS: I have uninstalled old SE Installer version 0.980 off the hard drive and reinstalled new SE Installer version 0.980 from the website on it. This time it came with its own 'system' and 'cache' subfolders, and I followed the steps as oultined above. It worked great and can download ...
