Source of the post how can we place the map of the Arctic jet horizontally after reversing it, so that the position of the jet gas is horizontally to the right?

Try these parameters for the planet.
    // Important !
    RotationPeriod  24
    Obliquity       90
    EqAscendNode    45
    Precession      -11.8622

Of course, this only works in an orbit around Jupiter.

When I click the "go to" or "take control" buttons when my spacecraft's only 1 meter in length, it zooms into the INSIDE of the spacecraft! And when I make it bigger, it gets better as it gains that volume, and eventually starts to stay on the outside of the craft. Is there any way to fix this? please let me know, and once again, thank you in advance. :)

My ship was made in the spacecraft editor, it isn't a custom model. Also, you might have selected the wrong video, because this says nothing about how to solve my problem.

I would remove the "Auto" camera, and add your own, at the location of your choice. Camera data is to be found in the .sss file of each ship.

And, of course, you can edit the cameras with the shift-F2 editor.

Yeah, I figured, but it's okay, didn't really do anything too major.

How to change the color of the planet ring generated by the program?

General questions about SpaceEngine

I had a question about creating a new star system, but i can't even create a new topic on "troubleshooting and solutions" forum, so I'll ask here : I'm trying to create a star system with a very precise location, at the opposite of the earth into the milky way. But I just don't understand the coordinates system in this program. Do we have to calculate de Righ Ascension and Declination from earth or an other point in the universe ? For my star has always the same location, no matter wich coordinates I give. 

Can someone help me ?
(and tell me where I had to post ?  :mrgreen: )

Jean203, I think this is a suitable thread for your request so I moved it here.
You'll need few more posts in order to create a thread on your own, so look around for existing threads in the meantime.

Right Ascension and Declination are celestial coordinates for a sphere with Earth as center.
In order to achieve that I think you should:
  • place your camera near the Earth.
  • search for Sgr A* with the search tool (Milky Way central black hole).
  • Annotate from the Wiki tool ("i" key) AR and Dec of the black hole. That is the direction where you will place your system.
  • Annotate also the distance of the black hole from Earth, in parsecs, then multiply that value by 2. That is the distance you need to use for your system.
If you did all this already, maybe there's something else wrong in the code, you could use https://pastebin.com/ to post it for us to check.

The coordinates (RA, Dec and Dist) belong in a script in the folder 'addons\catalogs\stars'.
The script may look something like this:
 
// Tos system
// (the other side)
// Tos.sc
// JackDole
// 2016.08.10 11:47:14

StarBarycenter "Tos System/JDV 00050"
{
     RA 17 45 37
     Dec -28 56 09.99
    
     Dist 17369.48
    
     Class "G2 V"
}

Everything else (The description of the sun and the planets and so on, belong in the folder 'addons\catalogs\planets'.)

(By the way, you can find an addon for such a system here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=71&p=530&sid=74d659132f82bc06c23faccb87de513e#p530)

For some reason, I couldn't login (error 403) so I created a new account. Thanks Mosfet and JackDole for your help, I finally succeeded.

@Mosfet : Yeah, that's exactly what I was doing, and it didn't work, that's why I didn't understand. It works now, but I tried so many things that I finally don't even know if I was doing something wrong (in typography for example) or if it was my computer and/or the program that had some bug... Well, it's fixed now, so thanks for your help. ^^

@JackDole : Thanks for the example, that's exactly what my script looks like now ! I even made precise adjustments. Don't worry, I carefully read the "create a star/planet" manual section before I post here, many times too, but the coordinates system isn't explained anywhere. Maybe too obvious ?  :mrgreen:

As far as I know, it is not possible to change the ring colors. I think they are generated more or less randomly. (Maybe depending on the colors of the planet, maybe not. I do not know.)

Hi guys,
do you have suggestions to create a custom cockpit? I'm able to set camera but i didn't understand how to create the model.
