Stars orbiting barycenter are not visible

Post #1by Daly » 28.03.2020, 22:15

Well I wanted to say that I wanted to make some stars orbit around the galaxy and I was able to do it but when I add the barycenter command they disappear I wanted to know if anyone can help me.

Stars can only orbit a barycenter out to a certain distance (~168 light-years according to Sirius_Alpha), beyond that they won't be visible. It's a limitation of Celestia. Also next time please use a title for your thread that describes its content, rather than just your username.
