I only want to see our local group. How to do this?
(Why? inspired by this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uzkD5SeuwzM
This is the view our far future ancestors will see as everything other than local group will expand away from us).
in /data/catalogs/galaxies, the files available are -
I deleted all files except Local Group, and I got what I want!
However, I now want to package it as an addon (if you download this addon everything except local group will vanish haha).
So I first made /data/ folder to how it was before. Then in /addons/catalogs/galaxies, I copy pasted the above four files.
Then I opened the files other than local group, and made them empty.
My thinking - since both /data/ and /addons/ have NGC-IC.csv file, SpaceEngine will give preference to the file in /addons/ and load that one (which is actually empty).
But SpaceEngine is still loading everything in /data/ even though I overwrote it? How to fix this?
As HarbingerDawn mentioned in the comments, looks like what I'm asking for isn't possible. I think in a previous version it could've been possible, as SpaceEngineer mentioned in the GAIA catalog thread,
To disable default star catalog, you may try to make an empty file on the same virtual path as the HIPPARCOS.csv, for example:
Does anyone know of any other workaround for this? Thanks!
