Fix for Wolf-Rayet Stars?

Post #1by Duglis » 14.10.2020, 14:31

Is there a fix for the Wolf-Rayet Stars? Only my WR 2 addon portrays such a star accurately as far as I know. All the other WR stars appear as M9 Stars.

What version of Celestia are you using? I've never seen or heard of this bug before.

It's not a bug I think. It's really that all the WR stars were intentionally made M9 Stars. I am using 1.6.2 All Just cold red giants.

Can you give an example of a star that should be a Wolf-Rayet star that's displayed as a red giant?

WR 1 = HD 4004 is not in the star database that currently comes with Celestia; in Andrew Tribick's updated star database it has spectral type WN4.

not "Steven"...


The conversation went to Discord, turns out the issue was caused by this addon.
