It would be an excellent idea, yet worth the development.

Even the star doesn't exist yet in US2 alone, so I made it from a random main sequence star and gave it the mass and radius of Teegarden's Star.
It goes in the "bodies" folder.

New planets discovered orbiting Teegarden's Star, both having similar mass to Earth.
The radii and composition of planets are unknown, but here are just guesses.

Yet the 1st planet has been analysed to have a mass only 5% greater than Earth's, giving it the highest ESI (Earth Similarity Index) rating of any exoplanet discovered so far, at 0.94 (94% similar to Earth).

Teegarden's Star: Mass = 0.08 Suns - Radius = 0.127 Suns

Teegarden b: Mass = 1.05 Earths - Radius = 1.03172 Earths

Teegarden b: Mass = 1.11 Earths - Radius = 1.154 Earths

The items "Teegarden b" and "Teegarden c" go to the "bodies" folder and the simulation goes to the "simulations" folder.

One thing to note is that tidally locked planets with water or other liquid on its surface and weather would have a giant vortex facing the star due to the star's heat and wind effects from it, so that needs to be implemented in a future update.

Universe Sandbox | Discussion / Most Earth-like Exoplanets Ever Discovered
« Last post by Gregory on June 21, 2019, 05:38:05 AM »
On June 20th, scientists using the CARMENES data detected 2 exoplanets orbiting Teegarden's Star (12 light years from our Sun), which were analysed to have similar masses to Earth.
And the 1st planet has the highest ESI (Earth Similarity Index) of all discovered exoplanets, at 0.94, meaning 94% similar in composition to Earth, dethroning TRAPPIST-1e though again ESI doesn't account for habitability.
https://futurism.com/the-byte/most-earth-like-exoplanet

Planet b has 1.05 x Earth's mass and c has 1.11 x Earth's mass.

So far we currently don't know their diameter or composition, but we do know they orbit in the star's habitable zone, which is much smaller than ours, as the star's only 8% the mass of our Sun and 12.7% its radius.

The simulation shows the planets radii and composition as plausible guesses considering their mass and distance.

The bodies "teegarden b" and "teegarden c" don't exist in US2 yet, so I made them from scratch and they go in the bodies folder.

I don't have time to count zones, but from quick estimations I'm not convinced me and Tuto don't have a chance if he returns

[01:52]   Kalassak   poasts
[01:53]   dar could blatuto win europium map game if they worked together
[01:54]   Darvince   tuto isn't going to come back
   Kalassak   they could take 92 zones
   i had 209 zones so now ihave like 250 or sth
   they couldn't

congrats kalassak i guess

feel free to argue the other way @Bla because i'm not sure of this myself

Kalassak's victory is inevitable unless Tuto returns. Therefore I won't take more turns before Tuto takes a turn
