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 ImprovedLHS 1140 systemPress the name for downloadUnpack 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).Screenshots:TRAPPIST-1 system(update 20.04.2017)Planet file goes into addons/planets, star file - right into data\catalogs\Catalogs0980 archiveCreated 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)

(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:

Screenshots:Gloria(update 17.04.2017)Place into addons/catalogs/planetsThe 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. Screenshots:Snickers planetDownload and instal same way ofcourseThis mod conflicts other possible mods about MarsThis 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.Screenshots:
