Sternenwart System: Custom Catalog

11 Jan 2018 20:34

This Mod is called Sternenwart, which is the first ever Mod I have created on Space Engine. It is quadruple Star System near Earth, only a few light years away. It is based on a fictional star probe called Fermi, which was send out to explore this potential life harboring star system. The system is a K+M and K+K system. With Sternenwart being the largest star in the system and being in the K+M system. 

The system first started out as my first attempt to create a Star system in Space Engine, after doing crash reading on how to do it. At first it was a basic system with a "K" star and a Desert world called Katar. Then I had the idea to expand the system into something much grander, and this is how it came to be. Now as I am sure that some might not read this and want to see the content side of things, below is a list of what this system has to offer. I.e The final system is the binary K+K system, which took longer to make as the binary orbit calculation of Space Engine isn't the best. Which required to make a custom star with both K+K masses combined. Then placing the planets around said star and then putting them where I want them. As this allows Space Engine to calculate the orbital periods properly.

The System has:
  1. 29 Planets
  2. Custom Names for all
  3. Custom Info´s for all (Most Spelling errors, hopefully, corrected. The final system has right now for all info's but all moons are not yet included)
  4. No Comets (For Final System)
  5. No Asteroids (For Final System)
Planned:
  • Comets
  • Asteroids
  • Moons for last systems
    I.e The final system is the binary K+K system, which took longer to make as the binary orbit calculation of Space Engine is the best. Which required to make a custom star with both K+K masses combined. Then placing the planets around said star and then putting them where I want them. As this allows Space Engine to calculate the orbital periods properly. Furthermore, Sternewart and Tate system have info's referring to the Fermi probe, as it visited only these systems. The video in this one is still in the making, which will be released at some point. So don't be confused why the final system doesn't talk about the probe.
This Mod was created by using,
[u][color=#0066cc][color=#0066cc]Rodrigos Terrain & Clouds Mod[/color][/u][/color]by Rodrigo, 
Special thanks to him

Although at first I used this mod to created the planets, make them look better. I dropped the mod after some time after I figured out how to make the planets I want without it. So while some planets might still look better with the mod, I run it without it and all the new planets are created without it.

This is the current addon video, there will be one showing more and all of the systems at some point:

Sternenwart System: Custom Catalog

An "Sternenwart" is the head of an observatory (Sternenwarte)
"Star's way" would translate into German with "Sternenweg".

I do not know the expression "Sternenwart" as a translation of "Star's way". But of course I do not know every German word. Maybe you could point out where you found it. (I'm German)

But you could translate "Sternenwart" also with "Star's warden" or "Star's guard".

While yes the name Sternenwart does translate to the other names too, I have heard that it does also translate (roughly=really stretching what its possibe) to "Stars-way"(Called my friend in Germany+ My Dad). The name is Sternenweg is more fitting to the translation I admit, but I found the name Sternenwart better. But thank you for pointing it out, I hope you can enjoy the mod anyway! :D 
If you find anymore "weird things", please point them out! The system is not 100% realistic of course.
