Stars in the Solar System

Post #1by Joey P. » 24.02.2019, 06:27

This addon (which requires this other addon for textures) adds some of the largest and most massive stars to the Solar System (VY CMa, VV Cep A, mu Cep, Antares, Deneb, Eta Carinae, LBV 1806-20, and the Pistol Star). I was heavily inspired by this video (in Japanese).

Code:

Code: Select all

"VY CMa (Solar System)"
{
   OrbitBarycenter "Solar System Barycenter"
   SpectralType "M2I-a"
        Radius 1467000000
   AbsMag -6.88

   Texture "mstar.jpg"

   EllipticalOrbit {               
      Period      9E12
      SemiMajorAxis   36
   }

   RotationOffset -90
}

"VV Cep A (Solar System)"
{
   OrbitBarycenter "Solar System Barycenter"
   SpectralType "M2"
        Radius 1322400000
   AbsMag 11.01

   Texture "mstar.jpg"

   EllipticalOrbit {               
      Period      9E12
      SemiMajorAxis   32      MeanAnomaly   180
   }

   RotationPeriod 0.17777777778  # 10 min
}

"Mu Cep (Solar System)"
{
   OrbitBarycenter "Solar System Barycenter"
   SpectralType "M2"
        Radius 989000000
   AbsMag 11.01

   Texture "mstar.jpg"

   EllipticalOrbit {               
      Period      9E12
      SemiMajorAxis   29      MeanAnomaly   235
   }

   RotationPeriod 0.17777777778  # 10 min
}


"Antares (Solar System)"
{
   OrbitBarycenter "Solar System Barycenter"
   SpectralType "M3"
        Radius 557000000
   AbsMag 11.01

   Texture "rstar.jpg"

   EllipticalOrbit {               
      Period      9E12
      SemiMajorAxis   15      MeanAnomaly   171
   }

   RotationPeriod 0.17777777778  # 10 min
}


"LBV 1806-20 (Solar System)"
{
   OrbitBarycenter "Solar System Barycenter"
   SpectralType "O"
        Radius 790404920
   AbsMag 11.01

   Texture "ostar.jpg"

   EllipticalOrbit {               
      Period      9E12
      SemiMajorAxis   25.777      MeanAnomaly   77
   }

   RotationPeriod 0.17777777778  # 10 min
}
"Pistol Star (Solar System)"
{
   OrbitBarycenter "Solar System Barycenter"
   SpectralType "B"
        Radius 236708000
   AbsMag 11.01

   Texture "ostar.jpg"

   EllipticalOrbit {               
      Period      9E12
      SemiMajorAxis   20.17727      MeanAnomaly   49
   }

   RotationPeriod 0.17777777778  # 10 min
}
"Deneb (Solar System)"
{
   OrbitBarycenter "Solar System Barycenter"
   SpectralType "A2I-a"
        Radius 141000000
        SemiMajorAxis 348.5
   AbsMag -8.73

   Texture "bstar.jpg"

   EllipticalOrbit {               
      Period      3E12
      SemiMajorAxis   15
   }
}

"Eta Carinae (Solar System)"
{
   OrbitBarycenter "Solar System Barycenter"
   SpectralType "O2I-a"
        Radius 557000000
   AbsMag -8.73

   Texture "ostar.jpg"

   EllipticalOrbit {               
      Period      3E12
                MeanAnomaly   25
      SemiMajorAxis   10.7
   }
}

That's going to be chaotic in a sense, but it's a good addon. However, it should not be placed in OUR solar system, perhaps it can be placed in a cloned solar system that is in another part of the Milky Way. This way, the data of the Solar System is not altered in any way, and rather, a new solar system with the stars you used exists in another place.

I know it would be very chaotic in a sense, but really it is only for the purpose of comparison.

You could try creating an STC code for a star that the other stars could go around.
