The planet is called 'The Disc', with a 'c' at the end. Not 'The Disk', with a 'k' in the end.

I meant Disc. On my modded version, I clicked it on the catalogue list, not manually. FYI, I discovered that the mod does not work on 0.9.8.0e.

Since I currently have only one computer with an Intel 3000 graphics card, which does not work properly with SE 0.980 / SE 0.980_e, textures are not displayed with me.

But the system is available and can also be clicked in the selection list.

Can you post your se.log here? It is located in the system directory of the SpaceEngine installation.

An attempt to give the asteroid the shape and color (reddish) it possibly has.
I can not guarantee that it works with SE 0.980 / SE 0.980_e.

The pictures are from SE 0.971.

You have the file 'Discworld 4.0.pak' in the wrong folder. You have it in 'addons\catalogs'. But it belongs in the folder 'addons'. (Which by the way is the case with many addons.)

I do not quite understand what you mean, but I have an addon for the Ringworld in the old forum: An'dohan Trufainne - Ringworld III
It did not work very well. And it was for SE 0.974 RC3, and I have no current version.

Like a fully fledged out Ringworld with an atmosphere and its own life like in the video game series, "Halo". But I understand the difficulty in coding something like that.

The Ringworld that JackDole originally posted to the old forum is a sphere with most of it given a transparent texture so that it looks like a ring. Ideally, a ringworld should be a 3D model, but Space Engine currently doesn't have any way to add procedural terrain to 3D models. Celestia has a fairly elaborate Ringworld addon which may be possible to port to Space Engine in the next version when we can make non-pilotable ships, but it still won't have procedural terrain.
