I was thinking and someone else liked the idea and thought that it would be appropriate to post in suggestions. I was trying to figure out if there was a way to assign different sprites to different star classes.. for example, large bright starts using various astroniki sprites and, maybe some other classes the eve,,ect. and some of the smaller dwarfs and and what not add the nostalgia sprites too. It would give each system a different feel and variety..... for future it could be added that this feature could be turned on and off and still be able to select your own for all as now. and in game play maybe certain ships based on supposed glass and class could have it assigned to them.. In depth the sprites could vary depending on class, composition, temp, ect. just an idea.

The different feel you are searching for comes with an issue, though. I think you are referring to effects such as diffraction spikes and lens flares. In reality those are optical effects originating from the camera system and optics, not depending at all from the color, temperature or class of the objects you're pointing at.
Let's suppose your camera is pointing at a couple of stars, a white dwarf and a blue giant. If those classes have different diffraction spikes, then the scene becomes unrealistic.

Planet 10 is here.

Thaks Jack, do you have the add-ons for the 8 planet star system recently discovered as well as Kepler 90 which might be the nearest star with an earthlike planet?  I need to get those and put them into my add-on folder.

OOps I think I got one confused with another- Jack, wasn't there an earthlike planet discovered recently around a red dwarf that's only 11 LY away?

Thanks, I guess those are the two add ons I am waiting on :) I also wanted to see one for that cigar shaped object that was journeying through our solar system but I think you were waiting to get more specifics on that object.

The second version may not work properly.
In the next version of SpaceEngine there will be 3D models for asteroids. Like this: http://spaceengine.org/news/blog180104/

I, for one, would very much enjoy to operate ships from Stargate, Battlestar Galactica, Halo, EVE Online and Warhammer 40k. 

There is also this web fictional universe project known as Orion's Arm. It's a vast and fascinating world that, quite frankly, never ceases to amaze me. I read entries from the Encyclopedia Galactica on the regular and I'm nowhere even near close from having been through all of them. It can be an awesome source of ideas for addons, be it ships or planetary systems.

Would like to see the Tesla Roadster, maybe as an Easter egg, following in its most current trajectory.

If nobody else does this then I will seriously consider making it myself, but ships and stations from the game Elite: Dangerous would be pretty awesome in Space Engine.
