fsgregs, hi, Frank.

I think that it can be implemented using a separate utility, which will replace the cfg file, or move / rename folders with add-ons. After a more detailed study of the problem, I could develop such a utility.

Even Lua Tools commands also need to be in writing.

We have improved the Lua Edu Tools (named Lua Universal Tools) by adding navigation tools, as well as reference materials and destination guides. We made it specially for the purpose of education, and that children were easier to use Celestia. Now we are preparing a detailed description with screenshots in English, is available here.

We also need to correct the star radii given within Celestia (for example, mu Cephei has a default of 3,870 solar radii as opposed to the widely accepted 1,420 solar radii)
