Source of the post Thuban B should be an A2 class star with a luminosity of around 40

The Wikipedia article only says that it is 'possibly' an A2 star.
But if you just want to change the class and luminosity, this script is enough:

// Filename: AlfDraB.sc

// https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thuban

Star "ALF Dra B"
{
    ParentBody "Thuban"
    Class      "A2"
    
    Luminosity  40
}

//------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Put it in 'addons\catalogs\planets'.

It is very nice. The system "Nu Scorpi" seems incomplete. It should have 7 stars. I am interested in the concept of a star system with 8 or 9 stars. One of them being a B type (Subgiant), 3 being A type (1 A class star being subgiant), 2 G type (1 subgiant), 1 a white dwarf, 1 M type, and 1 K. With the G type being in a close binary (orbiting in 24 hours or less with the other G type being something like a G8V star). Though you can spin your own flair on this. Star systems like this are really interesting to me and would make a great solar system, but I'm unsure how to do barycenters and orbits involving binary objects. The goal of this system is that it is habitable. Would it even be possible with those types of stars? Feel free to make it habitable by having different stars.

Nu Scorpii has seven stars in SpaceEngine!
You just have to get pretty close to the stars to see it.

B and A stars are generally not suitable for life-bearing star systems. These stars don't live long enough.
Giant stars, including sub-giants, are also unsuitable.
A G9 sub-giant might develop life, but it wouldn't get very old, so to speak.

did you make a planetary system for Nu Scorpii JD?

I want to make a mod with mirror appearance and I have finished the modelling so what should I do next to make it looks reflective?

In 0.980 it doesn't. I don't use 0.990 because I am unable to pay for it currently.

For my hypothetical 8-9 star system I am thinking that the universe is vast and possibilities are nearly infinite so, human life existing on a system with a B or A star might be possible. An F star in the system might be doable. Hmm, could you create such a system? Maybe this system has a G9 subgiant, but that'd mean the F star would basically be a white Giant or also a subgiant at that point. Maybe there were A or B stars in the system but they have turned into White dwarfes, or by some fluke of the universe one of them is possibly still around or something.

Now I have succeeded. Probably something about the preview image was not going well. The format was correct, but it only worked when I changed it...

Hello Guys im having trouble using cube map with 16-bit heightmaps.I have been following the instructions but my 16 bit maps created with world machine (and all others) seems to fail to read. as cube map reads it says that it has failed to read the file at like half way through. any ideas?

thank you.

Post a screenshot with the CubeMap results window.
Check the path to the source file in the .ccf file.

The guide on the page is confusing, does anyone have a video they know of that explains how to delete a star in a binary system?
