Source of the post is it normal that every Wolf-Rayet star added in my scripts (for WIP star catalogs mods) always appears as close binary stars?

This is a bug in SE 0.980. I do not know if it will be fixed in the next version.
You can work around this error by making a 'StarBarycenter'.
For example:
StarBarycenter "Aleph barycenter"
{
     RA 9 43 57.3
     Dec -3 12 23.03
     Dist 117.563585
}

(This belongs in 'addons\catalogs\stars')

And for the actual star its own script:
Star "Aleph"
{
     ParentBody "Aleph barycenter"
     Class "WN5"

     MassSol 300
     RadSol 20

     Luminosity 200000

    ....
    ....
}

(This belongs in 'addons\catalogs\planets')

Oooh, I see! I think I might instead wait for the next version to come out though, really looking foward for it.
Thank you still!

Going back to the matter of the 300 solar mass limit, of which I was talking [url=http://forum.spaceengine.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=29&start=810#p17019]here[/url], I can confirm that stars this massive are common in version 0.98. Of course they're easy to find due to their luminosity, but the fact remains that very massive stars are always 300 solar masses, not 299 or 295 or whatever value close to the 300 limit.

Also there are some huge stars around. I just now found this 141.99 AU behemoth, which obviously is unrealistically big.

This is just a test and I'm hoping a moderator can DELETE this post. I don't understand why none of the bb-codes work for me. Quoting, image linking, everything is disabled although the coding is correct. Is it because of that anti-spambot policy?

Yes.
We've had a lot of spam recently. That's why it's a safety measure for new forum members. After a few posts they will work.
