Proxima Centauri System

08 May 2017 23:05

In Space Engine the Proxima Centauri system is randomly generated. It has an accurate star but the planets are all random. This addon removes the randomly generated planets and replaces them with the one planet that we know of in the system to date: Proxima b. At the moment it is just a simple sc file with only one planet, and it might stay that way unless we get more information about the system in the future!

Addon features:
1. Automatically Removes all Randomly Generated Planets.
2. Adds the one planet we know of to date: Proxima b.
 
In the future I might add Proxima c, which we might have discovered recently (Gas Giant).

The planet looks like Earth with a virus.

Is the plant not tidaly locked because it's not confirmed yet?

It probably is.

Just saw this addon and its very very out of touch with the real Proxima Centauri b. First of all, its a temperate titan and its not tidally locked. The orbit parameters are fairly correct, but the type of world and rotation period are incorrect.

If anything, Proxima B is a mars-like desert or a dry terra, with vast green colored auroras because of Proxima's solar activity.

I think you used the default Titan with life proxima had and changed its orbit

Yep I can agree on that. I have a better file that I am working on.

Actually Proxima b could not be tidally-licked, because of high eccentricity of its orbit. It is likely captured in a 3:2 or 5:3 resonance, as Mercury does (Mercury would be tidally locked it it were have circular orbit). Next version of SE considers eccentricity while generating rotational parameters for procedural planets (and for catalog planets which hasn't them in script).

I'm surprised to hear that Proxima b may not be tidally locked after all. That must increase its habitability somewhat.

Let me know where I can get it from, as I have the old Prox Cen B
