Hey guys, I really like this mod, but small critique: The orbits of the randomOortCloudObjects look really weird from inside the solar system. I think it would look cooler if a gray version of LukeCEL's Abell 39 nebula was placed around the sun to represent the oort cloud, so it looks less like a weird glitch and more like an oort cloud.

I don't know if Anthony will add these things, but I'll just note that Celestia Origin already has them. I know you've said on Discord that you can't get Celestia Origin to work, but the Oort Cloud model is available as a separate addon here, and I could put together a separate addon for the eTNOs.

I would also recommend using the Oort Cloud model posted above. The problem with sprite nebulae is that they don't look very good from the inside.

Hopefully Anthony is fine with it being posted here (just taken from Celestia Origin + Project TNO):

:think:
Granted I need to update this yet again, the Oort Cloud objects are meant to represent random objects in the Oort Cloud. The reason the look weird is that they are at the very edge of the Solar System render limit distance, no version of Celestia (except for maybe 1.7.0) can actually view the orbits in their entirety. Use the model posted above to get a better view of the cloud, those 20+ objects are just a sample. Once I get a chance, I will merge Seven's addon into the pack.

You know what would be cool? Moons for the Fifth Giant.

I do agree that it would be cool, and it is suspected that the fifth giant having an encounter with Saturn is the cause for the weird inclination of the Iapetan orbit. I even suggested that the fifth giant be named "Vortex" after a ghost from Danny Phantom.

But alas, my Nickelodeon-Urania dreams aside, Anthony will probably stick to the facts/science we have now, so probably no moons. Or suggested names either.

The major update has arrived, that was worked on late at night since that was when I had time. (fun)
Screen shot 2020-05-23 at 2.18.20 AM.png

Theia now has higher res texture thanks to Mimus Derp.

Screen shot 2020-05-23 at 2.38.12 AM.png

Planet 9 now has its influenced eTNO's thanks to SevenSpheres. Texture updated to be the Celestia Origin one and it also has some updated parameters thanks to Seven.

Screen shot 2020-05-23 at 4.34.05 AM.png

Phaeton and Planet V now have moons (hence asteroids due to where there orbits were theorized to be).

Screen shot 2020-05-23 at 4.33.23 AM.png

The Fifth Giant has a moon system as well, albeit a tiny one with the farthest moon having a sub moon.

Despite some of these objects being fictitious and some hypothetical the moons were made to be as real as I could make them. (And none of the names have anything to do with cartoons. :smile: .)
There may be a ".DS_STORE" file in there, so if there is delete it it has no purpose. It is just a side effect of compressing this under macOS.

I can't wait to try it! I'm on guest mode, so I can't right now.

MOAR SUGGESTIONS:

Neith, a moon of Venus thought to have been sighted by Cassini (I think)
Some captured rogue planets (they are rather likely)
And... Planet X (10, not the one that is supposedly hitting earth 8 years ago)

Small update to fix some spelling errors and the readme file.

Lost Probe, you can get those objects with this addon from the Motherlode: http://celestiamotherlode.net/catalog/show_addon_details.php?addon_id=854

Update: Planet 9's rings are moved out a bit and fixed some of the moons' rotational periods.
