I suggest somebody make an addon for COCONUTS-2b and its parent star. COCONUTS-2b technically exists already as WISEPA J075108.79-763449.6 but its catalogued as an individual object and as a Y-type brown dwarf instead of a planet. The parent star, COCONUTS-2A, does not seem to exist in-game. If somebody could make an addon to fix this I would be grateful.

And for those who are uninformed, I am not joking about the name. It is really called COCONUTS-2b. Look it up.

Hello fellow explorers,

I don't have any experience with coding, video game production, or with modding games. So unfortunately I dont't think I can provide much value to the discussion regarding this specific request. Regardless, when playing Space Engine lately I've been very impressed with the volumetric rings added in the most recent update. I've been wondering if it would be possible to add other volumetric objects such as circumstellar discs and debris rings such as protoplanetary discs around young stars with no planetary bodies in their orbit. Or perhaps large collections of gas and debris to form protostars. I suspect this would be rather easy to implement considering how volumetric dust lanes were implemented in on galaxies within Space Engine (see also, the Volumetric Orion Nebula mod by user DaniilMaks in the Steam Workshop). Do you think this is feasible?

That "can" be "done" making a custom nebulae but to really add a real volumetric object like that it's up to the developers, so in short answers, you can add a nebula with a protoplanetary disc form, but is still a nebula.

Also I'm trying to add objects to Tau Ceti, but when I do it increases the mass of the four exoplanets there. If I create new addons to replace the exoplanets, it just creates copies of them instead of replacing them.

Can I see the script you use to remove it?

Remove “Barnard's Star b / Gliese 669 b / HIP 87937 b”

{ ParentBody “Barnard's Star” }

I've tried different variations of this script but I haven't been able to figure it out.

SpaceEngine wants straight quotes for its code, unfortunately the manual on the website contains curly quotes because of some CSS "beautification" module

It didn't seem to work.

Actually nevermind, I got it to work right after I posted this.

Thanks for your help Mosfet but can anyone help me with this? I think I'm using the wrong names for Tau Ceti's planets or something
