update it
Have you got anything that's actually helpful to say? Or are you asking for bigger version numbers for the sake of bigger version numbers?

The error here has to do with the classification of the white dwarf. The converter is not picking up the star's type, which is causing the rest of the program to fail. There is nothing I can do to fix this with this version of the converter because the code is bad, but in the next version of the converter which I plan on releasing very soon, this will not be a problem. 

Sorry for the inconvenience, but you will have to wait until I can get the code updated for this to work. 
it looks like it is never gonna get release i have the same bug

9/30/20 - The current version of the converter is not totally accurate, but me and another great developer are working on updating it now. The updated version will be posted here when it is complete. It will be completed soon, so stay posted if you are interested. For now, use the converter linked above as a good starting point for file conversion. 
Oh great! How are things going?

So I kind of forgot about this old project for a while and realized I never did post that update. That's my bad, lol. Life got busy, what can I say. But after a comment on my YouTube video reminded me people might still find this useful, I decided better late than never. The 1.2 version of the converter is leaps and bounds better than the last public version. It turns out that my first attempt at the equations got some things embarrassingly wrong. I'll credit that to my inexperience. Whoops.

That being said, the perfectionist in me is still left wishing the final product was better. There just isn't a 1-1 translation from US to SE. And I haven't tested it a whole lot recently. I just wanted to get this posted. Also, I didn't work on this alone. The very helpful Roshex wrote basically all of the code that "classifies" planets and stars (and then some). It works much better than mine did, and it looks like magic to my eyes, so I left it the way it was. And I'm very grateful for the work he volunteered to put in.

Anyways, this is probably the last time I'll update this. It isn't getting much better than it is (unless someone fixes obliquity, then hit me up). I wanted to add some QoL things, like planet colors, but SE doesn't play nice with colors anymore. Feel free to take a look at the GitHub page (https://github.com/SethFusion/US2-to-SE-Converter), and if you see something you think could be better, you have my full permission to fork and post your changes. Universe Sandbox's file structure changes almost every time they update, so it will likely be necessary for someone in the community to update for compatibility. The groundwork is laid though. 

Glad I could contribute to the community, and I hope a few people find this useful.
