JackDole, your Del Tri system is very beautiful (I don't see the anime).

skywalker66,
this is not a mistake, but that is the way SE 0.980 represents it.
The script is very rudimentary, it contains only the known data and is not adapted.
Planet "Tau Ceti f/HD 10700 f"
{
    ParentBody  "Tau Cet"
    
    Mass        3.94
    Msini       3.94
 
    DiscMethod  "RadVel"
    DiscDate    "2012"
    Updated     "2017.08.15"
    
    Orbit
    {
        SemiMajorAxis   1.334
        Period          1.741666
        Eccentricity    0.16
        ArgOfPericen    119.7482
        MeanAnomaly     -38.9611
    }
}

So SE 0.980 does something else from it as SE 0.971, where the pictures are from. In each version of SE, these simple planets are presented somewhat differently.

If you want 'terraformed' planets, you need to use the script that I posted here.

Quarior,
thank you.

JackDole, i tried modifying your earth-thiea mod so earth has the normal texture by simply copying texture from the earth and adding it to your script.
up close, it looks fine, a little farther back it glitches out. am I doing something wrong? (yes I have "NoLava true")

I cannot say that without knowing what you've changed.
It is best to post your script.

I do not know what the problem is, but try this script.

Tabby's Star - KIC 8462852

This is my version of Tabby's Star. I made it a double star. Nearby is a red dwarf who perhaps belongs to the system.
I have also added a planet. Where the people live who build the megastructure.

The Megastructure, which I published in the old forum, is missing. I will probably build it complete new when I have a new computer

I really like your recent work on Tabby's Star (or KIC 8462852) published here. Grey space aliens and Klingons will love you for it! Also, I found possible age error in the stellar system HD 164922 as compared in SE 0.980 with that of Wikipedia:
Stellar parameters:                                Space Engine 0.980                                Wikipedia

"This star is metal-rich, with a metallicity of 0.16, or 144% the solar amount. This is particularly odd for a star as old as HD 164922."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HD_164922      This stellar system has two gaseous giant Jupiters much older by several billion years than the other systems such as Kapteyn's Star 11.31 GA, Kepler-444 12.22 GA, and PSR B1620-26 12.62 GA, all of which are true ages in SE. The age of our Universe is close to 13.82 GA. There is contested claim for the oldest star BD +17 3248 as 13.8 GA and with extreme poor metallicity. I thought everyone in the SE forum is welcome to report any possible errors in the star system data or even exoplanet data. Thank you again.

Thank you very much for moving my last script into "Community ADDON: Exoplanets" this past weekend. I understood that all new exoplanets, exomoons and updated scripts on existing exoplanets may be posted there as long as they are real. I had worked on WASP-12 b's exomoon for some time and found new information which I included in my latest script- posted there. Beautiful dance of WASP-12 b and satellite around the star at close range, with all cometary tails pointing away from the star.

Is it possible that I can have asteroid belts made for three exosolar systems such as the following: 1.) Beta Pictoris, with four belts at 6.4 AU, 16 AU, 30 AU and 52 AU; 2.) Formalhaut, with two belts at 8-12 AU and 133-158 AU; and 3.) Tau Ceti, with only one single belt at 30-50 AU. I still don't know how to use your asteroid maker yet. They are very useful study for how planets form.

Oh, a new planet to discover. But where do you got orbital information ? Is your hypothetic orbit or do you find it ?
How our solar system (and the universe) keeps surprising us :).

One of my sources:
Mars-to-Earth-Mass Planet May Lurk in Outer Solar System: Planet 10

According to the calculations, an object with the mass of Mars orbiting roughly 60 AU from the Sun on an orbit tilted by about 8 degrees (to the average plane of the known planets) has sufficient gravitational influence to warp the orbital plane of the distant KBOs within about 10 AU to either side.
