LHS 1140, TRAPPIST-1, colonization, Atlan (SR2), Gloria, etc.

20 Feb 2017 11:29

WARNING: it is strongly recommended that you first install my Atmospheres 2.0 mod, cause some planets use new atmospheres and this number will increase. So the page is here:
Atmospheres 2.0 + Solar System Improved

LHS 1140 system
Press the name for download
Unpack to SpaceEngine\addons
New system is discovered in spring 2017. Without this mod the star doesn't exist in SE. Other names of the star - NLTT 2465, GJ 3053 - it can also be found by them. For now only 1 planet is known - a large planet with more then 3g gravity. The planet is considered a good applicant for life (in spite of the fact that a human won't last long there).

TRAPPIST-1 system
(update 20.04.2017)
Planet file goes into addons/planets, star file - right into data\catalogs\Catalogs0980 archive
Created in 1 night, right away after NASA news about new data discovery.
A rather close and very small star was known to have 3 planets, now we know it has 7. They drew an illustration, it shows nothing but fantasy cause nobody saw an exoplanet into a telescope, but I wanted to recreate their vision in SE.
Radiuses, masses, periods and eccentricity of orbits correspond to wikipedia data. Also added year and method of discovery.
In April masses of the planets have been reconsidered towards reduction that testifies to ice nature of most of them. Nevertheless I decided to leave appearance of planets as is. Alteration of all planets into ice would deprive the sense of the mod.
(the star file doesn't work from addons folder, it needs to be replaced in the very source. This will remove 2 duplicate stars and update TRAPPIST-1 - luminosity will become what is needed to warm the planets up to NASA data, but the temperature will rise to a fake value so you can see the planets in neutral colors, not all red)

Colonized Venus, Mars and Moon
(update 17.04.2017)

Mars file conflicts the Mars-Snickers mod
All 3 planets are compatible to bump improve mods, for example the detailed Moon by Klud
There are some mods about Solar system colonization, but I decided to go without hitting in an excessive fiction like colonization of Titan, Ganymede or Triton because it is too much. I have made 3 main planets alive and beautiful without repeating results with similar mods. Their atmospheres are breathable, but not identical.
A well-known in community SolSys2kLights file (lights of night cities) is also included, the cut-down copy with lights only for Mars, Moon and Titan (the last one is used for Venus cause it didn't have it's own). I don't remember who is the author of lights, but respect to him anyway. If you already have a SolSys2kLights file, don't update it.
If your Moon doesn't become green go here:
SpaceEngine/data/catalogs, open file Catalogs0980, open SolarSys.sc, find Moon
and delete these strings:
// Surface map author: John van Vliet
DiffMap        "Moon/Surface-JVV"
DiffTileSize    258
DiffTileBorder  1

Atlan system (Space Rangers 2)
Extract to main SE folder
the pak itself will appear in addons folder and the russian localization file will replace the initial one (it doesn't take any effect if you don't use russian language in SE but, you know, Space Rangers is a russian game)
This is native system of fei race. Someone may ask "Why only one system created?" This is beacuse in "Rangers" every new game completely changes the arrangement of planets in systems, their quantity, names, appearance, orbits and satellites, thus there is nothing concrete to recreate. Nevertheless except Solar there are 4 more systems (native ones for each of races) in which planet names remain constants at least. Amazing authors' carelessness on their own mythology. But I have created Atlan system with the look it had in one concrete game party, but I won't do other systems.
So, 3 inhabited planets and 3 lifeless. The native fei planet - Eipentak has irregular orbit, atmosphere with much neon, and also an astroengineering construction.
Someone may also notice that in English version this system is called Atlas, not Atlan, but this is just a localization mistake. Atlas star truly exist but in Russian it is called "Atlant", so if a star is called "Atlan" and not "Atlant" in Russian, then it's another star and it can't be called Atlas in English. Hope you got my point.

Gloria
(update 17.04.2017)
Place into addons/catalogs/planets
The idea was very simple - create the most beautiful planet in all Space Engine. Actually I could place it anywhere, but such beauty asked the special place in the universe therefore I made it the mythical Gloria - anti-Earth which is always situated on the opposite side of the Sun. This antiscientific hogwash has been made up by Pythagoreans in 5 century BC, it appears on ancient frescos and crazy TV.

Snickers planet
Download and instal same way ofcourse
This mod conflicts other possible mods about Mars
This is a screen adaptation of an old and non-funny joke - "If there is planet Mars, then there must also be planet Snickers". It's not like there is a lot of sense, but I wanted to be the one who corrects this universal injustice. This mod makes Mars a double planet together with... well, you know. Disrespectable satellites Phobos and Deimos are removed.

That would be me, I spent around 3 days making these lightmaps. :)

I do have an additional map currently for Ceres and I may do a couple others

Then make real lights for Venus. Not like that lonely flying city but a full true version.

The problem is there is no full Venus surface map I can draw them out on.  When you add oceans to Venus in SE you get a few flat zones and jagged islands, doing lights for that is incredibly difficult.

The city lights on Venus are supposed to be cloud cities, but they don't display as intended.

But you somehow could make it for Mars. What is the difference?

Mars has a complete surface and elevation map.  I had trouble with that, just turn off oceans and you will see some lights underwater.  It is not an easy task and it becomes incredibly difficult to do it with a world like Venus where data is missing.

If you want a better map you can always try making one, its a fairly straight forward process but it is quite time consuming.

I will probably make a land/water map for you. Somehow...

That might be useful and could be helpful for my future SolarSys2500 addon if I ever finish updating it.

I did take a look at your addon, it looks pretty decent, especially Venus.  I don't see the elevation map error I had before, might be due to the high def and ultra high def textures but I can't be sure.  I will look into making a new lightmap for it when I get around to making a SolSys3k addon, which won't be much different to the 2500 besides some slight changes.

I wrote about the star in the description - it is fake so you could see the colors of the worlds.
Planet g is only 1.34 mass of Earth, it can't be a gas one.

Pluton, please learn how to make pak files. Why did you replaced the ExoPlanetsSuns.sc, the sc file with only one star in the addons folder works very well. Also, don't use spaces in the file names.

Please learn english if you want to speak it in front of western community when we are both russians. "Why did you replace" is the correct question. And I did it because there is not 1 star changed but also 2 excess stars removed. I corrected the catalog error and I already told you that right in VK.
