Protostar's surroundings won't show when it's in the Solar System

Post #1by Joey P. » 27.11.2019, 20:33

This (incomplete) addon adds a protostar to the Solar System, just 50 astronomical units away from the Sun. This addon is reminiscent of Michael Mark Woolfson's Capture Theory. For some reason, the jets and nebulae surrounding the star won't show up. Could someone please fix this? Thanks.

I would also like to add a gaseous filament stretching from the protostar to the Sun, symbolizing the Capture theory and Encounter Hypothesis. How can that be done?

You have the parent body defined as "Timmy Turner". It should be "Sol/Timmy Turner".

Here is an updated version of the protostar addon, where the protostar is changed so that it is not gravitationally bound to the Sun. The planets are also renamed to show that they are accreting:
