Are Haumea's rings in the game? Because I couldn't see them.

Aren't they fixed in the June 15 update? https://steamcommunity.com/games/SpaceEngine/announcements/detail/1597003933820199945

I don't see anything wrong in my script for that to happen. It being fixed in the patch shouldn't interfere since I added a custom script for these 3 objects. I've got no clue why you don't have rings. Maybe you're in equinox or something idk

EDIT: Do you happen to have the HameaSF.pak file I've shared in discord? because that is mixed into this one and it shouldn't be used

tRetro-Visor,Sorry to interupt you again but I found a littlte bug in your add-on. But it's not a big deal - I can live without Titan's solar system browser mini-texture :)

As sort of an announcement relating to this addon, I've decided to discontinue the "Titan's Clouds" part of this addon. If you want to use it, have at it. After a ton of trial and error attempting to make it look good and for it to work, I am unhappy with it

However, I worked on Titan again. This time, no new textures and not a radical new addition. Its more like "tweaks" to the current default Titan.
What it adds: 

-Color on the surface texture (through modulate color)
-Brightness and Color changes
-Cloud color and opacity changes

Download the .pak file here

End result is something like this:

A Weekend on Titan (0990 Addon)

For the past weeks of this month (Starting Saturday 3rd) I overworked my nights to bring back Titan to its former glory.
It all Started with changes to brightness, clouds and colors, like before. But previously, in 0980, Titan had a fake, but with more detail on its lakes, made by SpaceEngineer as seen here:

^ Titan HD 0980 addon

The Start of this Solar System upgrade was bringing this map back, and I did it. But as I said, I overworked, and I went beyond the "forbidden" fence
In the process of bringing that old map back, I came across higher resolution sections of Titan's Ligeia Mare and Ontario Lacus areas thanks to Space Engineer

As I could not work with the full image of those patches, I had to sacrifice Resolution and detail for the sake of my computer not dying every 1 second. However, the results speak for themselves.
The only downside I can think of is the "patchy" look of the surrounding area. It is not a smooth transition from the levels of details, specially on Ontario Lacus.


DEFAULT 0990:

A WEEKEND ON TITAN ADDON:

Some things I'll point out quickly: Ocean depth and Elevation are based on assumptions. Ligeia Mare is known to be 200+ meters deep, and Titan's average elevation is 1 or more kilometers. I took some liberties on the elevation data for it to work properly and fix some bright specular spots on the equatorial region, not doing it excessively to not break real world data from Cassini

And to finish it off, I tweaked for the last time the script changes from Titan. Using Gordan Ugarkovic's RGB Images from Cassini as reference, Titan has a more closer-to-real color and brightness.
Image
There's also an option for cloud layers in the Titan Script in the .pak file if you want them. I would not recommend it as it's prominent to crash the game

This has been a huge labor of love. I've learned a lot in the process, and I hope you people enjoy this as much as I enjoyed doing it for the past days. I'll call it finished, but there's obviously more coming in the future. This is the first release. With Klud back, I expect a proper 1:1 resolution port of Ligeia and Ontario from him, or from me, if I learn how to do what he has done.
