Scientifically impossible, but hey, to each their own. :smile:

The point was not to be scientifically real, this just a result of my playing with Celestia.

Part of the reason I made this was just to have all of the exoplanet textures in one confined spot.

Cool, sounds like an interesting way to test textures in Celestia.

In my version, I modified the barycenter to be in orbit around Alpha Centauri A, so as not to interfere with the regular solar system.

Update for the addon: I removed Titan, Earth I, Ganymede, and Exo Habital because I felt they were really unnecessary.

Ganymede and Titan were in that system for the purpose of testing if they would produce eclipses on the planets. It didn't work.

To be habitable moons, I just never set their definitions to be “Sol/Barycenter”. And to make some good screen savers for my laptop.

I also have repurposed Titan and Ganymede to be better representations of moons orbiting the man barycenter.

Also, what kind of object would you like to see in system?

Oh. Also, I would like to see some asteroids around the barycenter. I also added a ring around the brown dwarf (which doesn't make sense, I know) because if all the others had rings, then maybe it should have rings too.

I was a little reluctant at first to put the ring around the brown dwarf because I thought it wouldn't make sense.
