How do you generate stars.dat? More precisely, how do you generate main Celestia index numbers? Do you get them from some kind of existing catalogues or generate them from automat? If second case, could you make them packed one-by-one rather than scattered over vast range? I think would be much more friendly for fast indexing code.
Still formally developer, but too tired to develop. I feel sad, but Celestia is going forward despite it.
Btw, the universe is ruled by electricity.

Texture resolution for objects with models increased to 8K. To avoid problems, a separate subfolder has been created.

A little tip: You guys could use the TailColor parameter to accurately color the tails of comets.

Joey P., Celestia Origin includes a file with the 10 largest stars as of December 2018. The radii you list are older than that; if anything the file should be updated, not replaced with older data.

I've made a list of Largest Stars values with sources; the values in green and blue are the most accurate, the non-highlighted ones I would not suggest changing. Just posting this for resourcefulness and a possible radius edit.

Oh, sorry about that; I wasn't keeping up with this project and lost interest in downloading it. Thanks for informing.

I made a video explanation here on why I don't believe UY Scuti isn't the largest star: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtEKBwJ0oXM
Edit: This was only publicly released after I made the video explanation; the Gaia DR2 catalog gives a radius of 755 solar radii for UY Scuti.
