Circumbinary Planet Issues

Post #1by Sirius_Alpha » 08.08.2019, 21:36

With the number of circumbinary planets that are becoming known getting into the dozens, there's a somewhat niche issue that I would like to bring to the attention of the developers, even if I'm sure they're already aware of it.

Planets orbiting barycenters are assigned temperatures of 0 K, and the barycenters do not show up in the Stars List when set to "planets with stars." The latter seems like it might be an easy fix but the former could be more challenging, I concede.

Despite being in the Kepler-47 system, Kepler-47 does not show up as the nearest planet-hosting system.

Could you provide test data?

Literally any circumbinary planet. You can download the data I used to create the above screenshot here.

Apparently it was the developers' choice not to show barycenters in the Star Browser (if you mark the option "nearest", they will not show up too). But their planetary companions are correctly registered as their children.

This is very frustrating, indeed.
