These are creative ideas! I'd like to create a system with life on every object. just need to figure out how :/

I have added a small update to my Firefly system.

The Firefly system is quite good and has some great lighting with all those suns.

Then it looks really good.
I can not test that myself at the moment. Only in an old SpaceEngine version. And there it does not look so good.

Hey, JackDole, about your Firefly system...
I had to download the v2 version, because I could not expand the Bai Hu system in the browser. But when I installed it, if I tried to go to any planets or stars other than those in the Bai Hu system, they would be invisible if I got closer than ~190 AU to them. So I had to do this:
/* //Add this!
Barycenter "34 Tauri(2020)"
{
    ParentBody  "34 Tauri(2020) System"
    
    MassSol     5.05     // estimated
    
    Orbit
    {
        SemiMajorAxis   1e-6
        //Period          560.74
        Eccentricity    0.0
        Inclination     0.0
        AscendingNode   0.0
        ArgOfPericen    180.0
        MeanAnomaly     0.0
        RefPlane        "Ecliptic"
        Epoch           2640740.5
    } 
}
*/ //Add this!
Barycenter "34 Tauri(2020) BC"
{
    ParentBody  "34 Tauri(2020) System" //Change to this!
    
    MassSol     2.05     // estimated
    
    StaticPosPolar  (0.0 0.0 0.0)
}

Barycenter "34 Tauri(2020) DE"
{
    ParentBody  "34 Tauri(2020) System" //Change to this!
    
    MassSol     3.0     // estimated
    
    StaticPosPolar  (0.0 0.0 0.0)
}

Hope this clears up any confusion others have with your Firefly mod.

I can not test this right now, but here is a patch.

Put it in 'addons\catalogs\planets'.
Then nothing needs to be changed at the .pak archive.

It seems to me that this is a problem in SpaceEngine, with the nesting of Barycenters.

Discworld 3.1

Here is my current version of the Discworld.
The disc is procetural generated and there is no turtle and no elephants.

The image is from version 0.971.

Since my computer is broken, I currently can not make any new and better version.

Wikipedia tells me that Venus did get hit 2 times and the first gave it a moon like Theia gave Earth, the second object just hit at the wrong place, slowing the rotation to 243 Earth days and making the rotation retrograde, making the moon spiral inward until either it reached the Roche limit or crashed into Venus.

Eh, this is a speculative hypothesis, not a known fact.

I said that Wikipedia says it, not that it is true.

All planet types apart from selenas and asteroids can have life.
Terra - Marine, Terrestrial
Oceania - Marine
Desert - Terrestrial
Titan - Marine, Terrestrial, Subglacial (I don't think Subglacial is compatible with the other two, never seen all three ever, even with 50 ly search radius in star browser)
Ice Giant - Aerial
Gas Giant - Aerial
Ice World - Subglacial
So, if yow wanna create a system with life on every non-star object, NO selenas or asteroids.

Do you planned to add the turtle and maybe elephants ?

Quarior,
I would love to, but I do not know how to do it with my modding methods.
