Patch 1
Hopefully this will solve the planet rendering problems. Also some sneak peeks for a big update.

Most of the textures work, but for me my PC just melts when I go to one of the exoplanets. Though that is just because I have a bad PC.

Wait, hang on, are the planets of Gliese 581 not supposed to be in order?

You put it in the addons/catalogs folder right?

That's weird, why can't i change the age of the star systems? The age of Kepler-442 is 11.326 Billion Years in SE, in reality it's 2.9 Billion Years, but i can't set that parameter... The author set the Age for LHS 1140 to 5 Billion Years, as a test i wanted to change that number but it's impossible either, it's still displayed as 5 Billion Years in SE?
And yes, i renewed the file in the .rar archive.

The 'Age' parameter does not work for scripts in the 'catalogs\stars' folder.

For it to work, you need to make a 'StarBarycenter' script in the 'catalogs\stars' folder, and have the actual 'Star' in a script in the 'catalogs\planets' folder.

Per forum rules, registered users need to reach a specific number of posts in order to make new threads. Unfortunately this limitation affects also message editing. Moreover, due to massive spambot attacks some filters have been placed as well for new users. Don't worry, just few days and you'll have more control on your posts.

Hm okay, though this is the first time in a forum that i need a certain amount of posts to edit mine.^^
Anyway, thank you for the explanation! :)

By the way, do you know how great the distance is between Earth and Kepler-452? In SE it was something around 2800 Ly or so but that contradicts with an AppMag of 13.7 and an luminosity of 1.2, so i changed it to 2150 Ly to make it right. Wikipedia says 1400 Ly but that can't be true either and i didn't found anything about the distance in official sources like NASA or ESA...

I've used Wikipedia for most of the data in this addon, so I'll keep K-452 at 1400 ly. 
By the way, GIGANTIC update coming, soon.

Whatmough's 2018 Update
Sorry I've been away for quite some time. I've been busy with school, playing with my new pet, and other side projects. Probably another addon?
These are the first of the "few" user requests I've gotten, so lets just get straight into them.
Betelgeuse's 51 Eridani b

Spinecone's Exoplanets
TrEs-2 b

Isis/HD 189733 b

...the rest. To answer Spinecone's question, I've not heard of Whatmough's work, but i know I've seen them somewhere, especially Gliese 876 d. I wasn't sure if his artist renditions were meant to be made and all this was a massive misunderstanding, but hey, it's here in SE! The images are in order from the images sent.
Whatmough Impressions
Any more requests? I already got Kepler-90 up my sleeve.
Replace my old Exoplanets download with the one attached.
