Aye, that's quite nice, Luke. I had a look. It might not be 100% realistic in terms of how solar systems can appear, but what's important is that you used your imagination to build your own vision of a star system.

I do have a few tips to give you.

That star is Rigel, isn't it? I could tell immediately. It's nicer to modify some parameters of the star so it's unique. Maybe keep that in mind for next time.

For a comet to be a comet, it should hold an elliptical orbit that brings it close enough to the star that the water in it begins to melt and turn into gas. Otherwise, it is an asteroid. Therefore, adjusting Luka's Comet's eccentricity so that its closest approach to the star heats it to about -20°C to 20°C should be ok.

Bluestorm is very hot because it is Brown Dwarf. Objects above 13 masses of Jupiter are classified as "Brown Dwarfs"—failed stars that do not shine like the stars we know but still emit a lot of heat.

On the planet "Green," you set the atmospheric pressure to be very low. The lower the atmospheric pressure, the lower the temperature water boils. The game doesn't simulate this yet, but if the pressure on Green was so low, water would boil at room temperature, so you wouldn't see the oceans on it.

And yes, radiation is a big problem on these systems. One way you can protect a planet from the star's radiation is if you go to Materials > Magnetic Fields and add a magnetic field.

There are quite a number of little things regarding realism that doesn't quite work in this system, but I didn't dive too deeply into realism aspects because worldbuilding is about constructing your own representation of a system. I have to admit, I am hugely obsessed with the realism of a system, and maybe that's a bad thing because I constrain myself to model off other solar systems we have already discovered, limiting my creativity to a certain extent. Ensuring a system is realistic means I have to invest a tremendous amount of time testing it, especially orbital stability. The star systems I make take about a month to finalise, with a day or two of total playing time. ::)

Nevertheless, if you are interested in knowing more of how a solar system evolves in the real world and try to model that in the game, I'm open for discussion, but maybe not on this thread.

Medina System

The Medina system was named by Saudi Arabian scientists who discovered it in 2032 after the launch of NASA's DeepSpace Telescope which allowed never before seen star systems to be seen. The Saudi Team quickly discovered a system not too far away from Sol which was pretty basic and almost resembled earths in a way. It was named Medina after the Saudi city of Medina.

- PLANETS

Narkin - The first planet to be discovered and admittedly, the hottest and ugliest. It comprises of a scratched vomit-yellow surface with what appears to be an unknown blue element scattered around the planet.
So far, Narkin is the only planet that has this unknown blue element in this system. It reaches well above 1000c. Not a whole lot is known about it besides it was not that close to Medina until the original planets nearby crashed in to eachother which dragged Narkin closer from the habitable zone. It lost it's atmosphere and magnetic field quickly and became a hot-zone.

Mecca - Second planet to be discovered. Named after Saudi Arabia's holiest city. Admittedly, also the most beautiful. It has flowing oceans of H20 and what appears to be grass, some flat-lands and snow-capped mountains hinting that there's seasons and of course a diverse weather system on Mecca which by far makes it the most unique planet in the whole system. It is around 19c. The planet has always been in the habitable zone and is rumored to be as old as the sun itself. Despite changes around it, it has always remained in a consistent orbit. Whether it's by pure luck or alien technology. Who knows?

Alas - Third planet to be discovered, named Alas after.. you know, alas. Well. Basically, it's an desert planet that is around -150c and has an atmosphere. Technically, it used to be habitable until it was pulled from it's habitable zone orbit by a far larger gas-giant in Medina's system which vanished sometime later through luck for Mecca and Alas or by some sort of Alien technology?

ARIST SYSTEM



DOWNLOAD LOCATED AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS POST


SYSTEM SUMMARY
Arist is a fairly old single-star system, consisting of a K-type main-sequence star, 7 planets, and hundreds of moons and minor planets. The system shares a surprising amount of similarity to the solar system, though more compact owing to the star's lower gravitational attraction. Despite being double the age of the solar system, the longevity of K-type stars means that Arist will still shine and remain stable for billions of years more, its habitable zone a prime location for life to thrive and develop.

ARIST
Arist is the lone star of the Arist system. At 0.705 times the mass of the Sun and 0.679 times its radius, Arist is a K-type main-sequence star. It houses an extensive system comparable to the solar system, though more compact. Arist has shone for 9.44 billion years, slightly more than twice the age of the Sun. Its lower mass and hence slower rate of consuming its fuel are sufficient for about another 14.5 billion years of light and warmth until it fades away at 24 billion years of age.

Although the star is around 70% of the Sun's mass, its luminosity is only 17.6% of the solar system's star. Its surface temperature is also over 1000°C cooler than the Sun, at 4291°C.

ACISENRIND
Acisenrind is the innermost planet of the system. It can be considered quite a close parallel to Mercury, except for its size. Acisenrind is 0.83 times the mass of the Earth and 0.957 times Earth's radius (6094 km).

Due to the more compact nature of the Arist system, Acisenrind whips around its star in 10.2 days and has become tidally locked. As a result, the day side temperature is locked to 340°C, and the night side plunges to below zero and remains thus.

A thin band around the terminator of the planet—where day meets night—would maintain temperatures similar to Earth. However, the lack of an atmosphere and the constant bombardment of Arist's solar wind means that Acisenrind has long lost virtually all of its water, and is hence not at all habitable.

While Acisenrind is not as hot as Mercury or Venus, the closer proximity to its star means stronger solar winds, which strips away material from the planet's surface. The current rate of this mass loss is 2800 kg/s. Therefore, Acisenrind is shrinking, but at the current rate, Arist would long be a dead star before all of Acisenrind's mass is lost. Once Arist reaches the end of its life, Acisenrind will only have lost 0.03% of its mass to the solar wind. Really lets you appreciate just how big these planets are.

ACISENRIND
The second planet from Arist is slightly smaller than Acisenrind, at 0.76 times the mass of the Earth with a radius of 5945 km. However, the two planets share a similar composition and their surface features are very much alike.

With an orbit of 47.1 days, Acisenusuk is just far enough away not to be tidally locked but has developed a 2:3 resonance with the star. That is, for every 2 orbits around Arist, Acisenusuk rotates on its axis 3 times. The time required for one rotation is therefore 31.4 days.

Temperatures on the day side are about 91°C, with night also causing a plunge into sub-zero temperatures. Like Acisenrind, Acisenusuk has lost all of its water except for some ices hidden in the depths of craters.

JASUSBULA
Meet the 3rd planet from Arist, a desert world on the inner edge of the habitable zone—Jasusbula. Slightly more massive than Earth, the planet is covered in shifting sands, dunes, and arid plateaus.

These clouds are deceitful—for they contain very minimal water, but a number of other substances. They should not be blue, but Universe Sandbox ˛ does not yet support changing atmosphere colour and atmospheric composition, and so I've had to make do with what I had.

In the ancient past, liquid water did indeed exist on the surface of Jasusbula, the evidence being a number of dry riverbeds and valleys carved by water. However, at the inner edge of the habitable zone, water was not exactly plentiful in the first place. On top of this, Arist was also much cooler and less luminous in its first billion years or so of its life. Stars gradually increase their luminosity as they age. Therefore, as time passed, Arist gradually increased luminosity, meaning a greater amount of energy and solar wind hitting Jasusbula, causing increased water loss. Over the next few billion years, surface water gradually disappeared from the planet, rendering the surface quite inhospitable. Some water has been able to avoid the fate of being stripped from the planet. These reservoirs are now trapped underground in subterranean lakes and rivers.

It is to the credit of the planet's magnetic field that no more of the water has been lost to the solar wind. Jasusbula still retains a molten core and has a fairly fast rotation rate. One day here is 3.32 Earth days. As a result, a magnetic field was able to develop and divert a portion of the star's charged particles, which are capable of blasting water away from the planet. If not for the magnetic field, the water on Jasusbula would certainly have been lost much faster, not to mention that a greater portion would have been lost.

Would life be able to survive in Jasusbula's underground water reservoirs? Whether it may or not, an advanced civilisation is unlikely to evolve here.

TROSUSLIA
Situated in the middle of Arist's habitable zone lies Trosuslia, a relatively small Super-Earth weighing in at 2.23 Earth masses and a radius of 8089km. In contrast to Jasusbula, Trosuslia is the only planet with liquid water oceans, as well as life evidently on its surface.

Though it is also a blue planet, it does not share a lot of similarities compared to Earth. A day on Trosuslia is about 2.5 Earth days. Seasons are a little more than half as long as our home planet. New human arrivals would have to take some time to adjust to the higher gravity. With an atmosphere that is 143% as heavy as Earth, living in a world with higher atmospheric pressures would also take some getting used to. Only the average temperature is relatively unchanged compared to the Earth. Trosuslia's average surface temperature is 16–17°C, compared to Earth's 15°C. While this may not seem like a lot, if Earth's average temperature is 1°C warmer than it is now, sea levels would rise by 6 metres, swamping many low-lying areas. Taking this into account, Trosuslia, therefore, does not have extensive ice caps.

The large mass of Trosuslia allowed itself to sweep up most of the water present in the habitable zone during its formation. Its gravity well also attracted many small bodies containing water that was sent towards the inner Arist system by the gas and ice giants in its early days. A greater amount of its surface is covered by water compared to Earth, and it is not far from being an ocean planet with no landmasses. The high gravity of Trosuslia means that mountains cannot grow very tall before collapsing on themselves, and therefore much of the surface is covered by low-lying archipelagos.

Although there are no signs of advanced civilisations on Trosuslia, life has most definitely taken a foothold. The low-lying archipelagos are dominated by lush forests and plains, providing support to a complex and diverse biosphere. Even though Trosuslia is over twice as old as the Earth, life has had a difficult time emerging due to a multitude of severe extinction events in much of its history. It's large gravity well attracts more potentially hazardous asteroids capable of inducing such extinctions. The high mass and size of Trosuslia also mean that there is much more remnant heat in its interior than Earth, leading to periodic planet-wide eruption events, throwing up dust and blocking the star's light. It was only after about 6 billion years after its formation that impact events were not so frequent and eruptions were not so widespread.

After this time, unicellular organisms were finally able to flourish for extended periods. They did exist before this time but kept experiencing extinction events that prevented them from developing further. At around 8.5 billion years of age, the first multicellular organisms appeared in the oceans. At 8.9 billion years old, life finally made the move onto land. Now, at 9.44 billion years, both land and sea house an extensive array of biota, with their complexity and evolution showing no sign of slowing down lest another major extinction event should occur.

Like the Earth-Moon system, a relatively large moon also orbits Trosuslia. However, whereas Earth is 81 times more massive than the Moon, Trosuslia is 206 times as massive as its companion—Trosuslia I. It is believed this moon also formed via a gigantic collision early in Trosuslia's history.

On Earth, the Moon has a stabilising effect on its axial tilt, stopping the Earth from tilting erratically and keeping the climate relatively level. Although Trosuslia I is much less massive compared to its orbital parent, it also achieves the same effect, but to a lesser extent.

Compared to the monthly orbit of our Moon, Trosuslia I orbital period is only about 11 days. As a result, it appears larger in Trosuslia's sky than the Moon appears in Earth's sky, and is responsible for somewhat more prominent tides on the ocean planet.

DINURU
Behold the first gas giant of the Arist system—Dinuru. Though it is certainly more massive than any terrestrial planet in the system and 12 times as massive as Trosuslia, at 27.3 Earth masses, it really isn't very impressive in the grand scale of things. By comparison, Saturn has 95.2 Earth masses. Nevertheless, it is the most massive planet in the system.

Dinuru is largely composed of hydrogen, with the gas accounting for 74% of its total mass. Water is more abundant beyond the habitable zone, and so 19% of its composition is composed of water.

All three gas giants of the Arist system have developed ring systems. The rings of Dinuru are almost entirely made of silicates.

It should be noted that Dinuru's size—or rather lack of size—is partly responsible for life having a rough start on Trosuslia. In our solar system, Jupiter acts like a cosmic vacuum, diverting potentially hazardous asteroids away from Earth. Dinuru does not have sufficient mass to act as a very effective shielder to Trosuslia.

Dinuru boasts 47 moons, the greatest number of moons of any planet in the Arist system. However, only the innermost moons and moons of radius 100 km or greater have been displayed in the simulation. This is to avoid cluttering up the system and slowing down the simulation.

At about 1 million kilometres from Diniru orbits Dinuru VII, a moon 2.52 times more massive than our Moon. The tidal forces between it and the gas giant create internal heating and a weak magnetic field to develop, shielding the moon from solar winds. Dinuru VII also lies within Dinuru's magnetic field for a portion of its orbit. Solar wind strips away atmospheric particles, but these shielding factors allow it to retain a relatively thick atmosphere compared to other moons and even some ice on its surface.

However, with a temperature of -140°C, it is unlikely for life to develop here. Whereas moons like Europa in the solar system could have an ocean under the ice, the ice for Dinuru VII is thin compared to moons like Europa, meaning there is no ocean for organisms to seek refuge in.

ROTULIS
The second gaseous planet from Arist is more closely related to Uranus and Neptune than Saturn or Jupiter. At 16.2 Earth masses, it is slightly more massive than Uranus but slightly less massive than Neptune. However, where both Uranus and Neptune are made of more than 80% water, Rotulis has hydrogen and water in more or less equal proportions, allocating it the title of being a hybrid of gas and ice giant.

Aside from these characteristics, there's nothing too different here than to Dinuru. Granted, it is certainly colder, with the temperature at Rotulis being -180°C, but the sights and experiences one would expect to see here are quite similar.

The Rotulis system contains 39 moons. Only the innermost moons and moons of radius 100 km or greater are simulated.

CHARILIA
The outermost planet of Arist and also the last of the giant planets is Charilia, and the only true ice giant of the system, with its composition made of 66% water. With a mass of 13.3 Earths, it is less massive than either Uranus or Neptune. However, its high axial tilt gives its system a somewhat analogous appearance to Uranus.

Due to the compact nature of the Arist system, Charilia would occupy about the same orbit of Jupiter should it be relocated to our solar system.

The Charilia system is heavily shrouded by icy materials. The temperatures of -200°C here allow massive amounts of ice to exist, both in the planet and within its moon systems. Some moons contain an icy crust up to hundreds of kilometres thick, most notably on Charilia VII, VIII and IX. Despite this, it is believed that Charilia offers too little tidal heating to produce liquid water oceans under the crust of ice like on Europa. The ice is likely frozen almost entirely the way through to the mantle of the moons, reducing the chance of marine organisms surviving under the ice.

The Charilia system contains 36 moons. Only the innermost moons and moons of radius 100 km or greater are simulated.

DWARF PLANETS
A number of dwarf planets and minor planets orbit Arist. Of these, there are two notable members in the inner asteroid belt between Trosuslia and Dinuru. Both have a radius of about 500 km.

It is believed that the asteroid belt was unable to form an entirely new planet because of gravitational perturbations from Dinuru. This is similar to the case of Jupiter in our solar system. Although Dinuru is less massive than Jupiter, the compact orbits of Arist ensure its gravity still has a role in preventing planet formation around the outer edge of the habitable zone.

More dwarf planets exist beyond the orbit of Charilia than in the inner Arist system. This region contains another asteroid belt, analogous to the Kuiper Belt in our solar system. Due to its distance from Arist, objects here are mostly made from icy materials.

Only dwarf planets with a radius of 450 km or more are displayed in the simulation. There are hundreds more with radius 100–400km, but adding so many would be a heavy burden on the simulation.

COMETS
Most comets in the Arist system originate from the asteroid belt beyond Charilia. Notable members include Comets Adtel, Eaphus, Uephus and Esmilles. All four are known to produce impressive tails on their close approaches to the star, and all four are periodic comets, capable of being seen more than three times in a human's lifetime.

The display of the comets is expected to continue as long as they contain icy volatiles on their surface. Esmilles has the closest orbit to Arist and is expected to exhaust its volatiles first, but not before it completes another few thousand orbits around the star.

The Arist system does contain more than these four comets, and even an Oort Cloud far beyond the orbits of the planets. Long period comets from there could take thousands to hundreds of thousands of years to orbit. However, these are not simulated to avoid cluttering.

TIPS
  • If your device is slow, download the version of the system with no particles.
  • Recommend maximum timewarp rate: 2 hours/sec

CREATOR'S NOTES
My worldbuilding project after the previous Sorr system is now complete. ;D This system took about a day's worth of total playing time to create, split over the course of a month. While the previous binary system—Sorr—was not a bad creation, I had begun to notice some very unrealistic portions of the creation seeping through. Arist may not be as spectacular in that it does not have two stars, but my ultimate aim in worldbuilding is to build star systems so realistic, you begin to wonder if I replicated an exoplanet system we've already discovered in real life.

These systems are certainly fictional and based off of my imagination, but my methodology is to tinker with the system for the longest while, fixing little things until I am satisfied with its realism. Some of these little things you may not even notice. Orbital resonance is included in Arist. Albedo has been taken into consideration. The orbits of planets all have a certain degree of eccentricity and inclination to model the real world. Even the magnetic pole angle has been altered on objects with a magnetic field, despite it not having any effect yet in the game.

I'd appreciate any suggestions as to how I may be able to improve future systems beyond this.

Medina System

The Medina system was named by Saudi Arabian scientists who discovered it in 2032 after the launch of NASA's DeepSpace Telescope which allowed never before seen star systems to be seen. The Saudi Team quickly discovered a system not too far away from Sol which was pretty basic and almost resembled earths in a way. It was named Medina after the Saudi city of Medina.

- PLANETS

Narkin - The first planet to be discovered and admittedly, the hottest and ugliest. It comprises of a scratched vomit-yellow surface with what appears to be an unknown blue element scattered around the planet.
So far, Narkin is the only planet that has this unknown blue element in this system. It reaches well above 1000c. Not a whole lot is known about it besides it was not that close to Medina until the original planets nearby crashed in to eachother which dragged Narkin closer from the habitable zone. It lost it's atmosphere and magnetic field quickly and became a hot-zone.

Mecca - Second planet to be discovered. Named after Saudi Arabia's holiest city. Admittedly, also the most beautiful. It has flowing oceans of H20 and what appears to be grass, some flat-lands and snow-capped mountains hinting that there's seasons and of course a diverse weather system on Mecca which by far makes it the most unique planet in the whole system. It is around 19c. The planet has always been in the habitable zone and is rumored to be as old as the sun itself. Despite changes around it, it has always remained in a consistent orbit. Whether it's by pure luck or alien technology. Who knows?

Alas - Third planet to be discovered, named Alas after.. you know, alas. Well. Basically, it's an desert planet that is around -150c and has an atmosphere. Technically, it used to be habitable until it was pulled from it's habitable zone orbit by a far larger gas-giant in Medina's system which vanished sometime later through luck for Mecca and Alas or by some sort of Alien technology?

Darkin System

The Darkin system was formed around 4 billion years ago. It has two habitable bodies in it's system and a multidue of other rare planets that have never been discovered before. It proves to be a promising system that has potential for a lot of research and possibly future colonization.

- PLANETS -

Tuneme - A planet that is rocky. It has a gray surface that is beautiful due to the molten lava seas on the planet that are all over the planet. It's around 2.66 earth-sized and as well as 943c. Making it the hottest planet in the system. It is also the first planet.

Flupi - Rocky planet that has beautiful blues mixed in to grays. It is 20.5 moon sized, making it the smallest in the system. It's temp is 273c.

Obius - A desert planet that is 97c. It has an atmosphere and an magnetic sphere. The planet once resided in the habitable zone of the Darkin system but was dragged further out of it in to the red-zone. But as a result. It has not lost it's magnetic sphere or atmosphere. It appears to have an cratered and scratched surface, indicating that the planet had went through a bombardment of meteors or some sort of objects. It once harbored desert life very similar to our own, but different in it's own form. It still does harbor life but most of it has moved deep underground. Invertebrate insect-like creatures reside deep down beneath the surface in the cool underground tunnels of Obius. It's around 55 moon size.

Lucifer - A fiery red planet that has an atmosphere and magnetosphere and of course, a fiery-blue ring to go with it. The planet's ground is red, no matter what elevation of the planet and the temp of the planet is no joke either. 118c is the Surface temp. Making it the last hottest planet in the Darkin system, but also the creepiest. Life has not existed on the planet.

Deep - A water world that has a surface temp of 19c. A beautiful blue planet when observed and also has a beautiful sunset and sunrise thanks to the blue sun. The planet has an atmosphere and magnetosphere that protects it well from any harm. Life exists on the planet of Deep. With various underwater features such as caves, abysses, coral, etc. It has various life on the planet but the definition of life on the planet Deep is.. horrifying to what we would call "sea-monsters". There are three big predators bigger than the blue whales on Earth and numerous subpredators and the alike on the planet. It is the biggest planet in the system.
Dune - A desert moon to Deep. It also has an atmosphere, magnetosphere. It has some oceans flowing around the planet. Alien life exists on the moon in the form of the same giant insects that inhabit Obius and giant worms that hide underground and monkey-like creatures that are possibly in the stages of evolution to become a more sentient species.

Retan - A planet that has only one season. Winter. It constantly snows and maintains a temp of 152c. It is the coldest in the system and of course, it has an atmosphere and magnetosphere. It has no life but it's snow is just like Earths. envision a snow-covered earth where it constantly snows. Up to 7 feet of snow lands upon Retan everyday.

- OTHER -

Jumbo's comet. A comet that comes close to Darkin a lot. It has no other notable features.

The planet once resided in the habitable zone of the Darkin system but was dragged further out of it in to the red-zone. But as a result. It has not lost it's magnetic sphere or atmosphere. It appears to have an cratered and scratched surface, indicating that the planet had went through a bombardment of meteors or some sort of objects. It once harbored desert life very similar to our own, but different in it's own form. It still does harbor life but most of it has moved deep underground. Invertebrate insect-like creatures reside deep down beneath the surface in the cool underground tunnels of Obius. It's around 55 moon size.

Lucifer - A fiery red planet that has an atmosphere and magnetosphere and of course, a fiery-blue ring to go with it. The planet's ground is red, no matter what elevation of the planet and the temp of the planet is no joke either. 118c is the Surface temp. Making it the last hottest planet in the Darkin system, but also the creepiest. Life has not existed on the planet.

Deep - A water world that has a surface temp of 19c. A beautiful blue planet when observed and also has a beautiful sunset and sunrise thanks to the blue sun. The planet has an atmosphere and magnetosphere that protects it well from any harm. Life exists on the planet of Deep. With various underwater features such as caves, abysses, coral, etc. It has various life on the planet but the definition of life on the planet Deep is.. horrifying to what we would call "sea-monsters". There are three big predators bigger than the blue whales on Earth and numerous subpredators and the alike on the planet. It is the biggest planet in the system.
Dune - A desert moon to Deep. It also has an atmosphere, magnetosphere. It has some oceans flowing around the planet. Alien life exists on the moon in the form of the same giant insects that inhabit Obius and giant worms that hide underground and monkey-like creatures that are possibly in the stages of evolution to become a more sentient species.

Retan - A planet that has only one season. Winter. It constantly snows and maintains a temp of 152c. It is the coldest in the system and of course, it has an atmosphere and magnetosphere. It has no life but it's snow is just like Earths. envision a snow-covered earth where it constantly snows. Up to 7 feet of snow lands upon Retan everyday.

- OTHER -

Jumbo's comet. A comet that comes close to Darkin a lot. It has no other notable features.

Darkin System

The Darkin system was formed around 4 billion years ago. It has two habitable bodies in it's system and a multidue of other rare planets that have never been discovered before. It proves to be a promising system that has potential for a lot of research and possibly future colonization.

- PLANETS -

Tuneme - A planet that is rocky. It has a gray surface that is beautiful due to the molten lava seas on the planet that are all over the planet. It's around 2.66 earth-sized and as well as 943c. Making it the hottest planet in the system. It is also the first planet.

Flupi - Rocky planet that has beautiful blues mixed in to grays. It is 20.5 moon sized, making it the smallest in the system. It's temp is 273c.

Vernusta System
Consisted of 3 planets with 5 moons total

Intro
Vernusta system is similar to Sol System, having 1 Earth-like planet with intelligent life. The system is located 553.2 light years away from Sol.

Vernusta



A star just like the sun, but it's 140% heavier and 4 times brighter. Temp is 6812K (6538.85°C).

Efithra



Efithra is the first planet in Vernusta system. It's located 138,671,520km(0.93 AU) from Vernusta.

It's 2.13 heavier than Earth, radius being 8,133 km. Rotation period is 1.28 years, longer than orbital period (275 days).

Due to its close range, Efithra has became hottest planet on the system. Its atmosphere is consisted mostly of carbon dioxide, with few amounts of hydrogen sulfide, methane, and water vapour.

As it has the high atmospheric pressure (33.3 atm) surface temp rises up to 430°C. Surface cannot be seen from naked eyes because of thick clouds.

The planet was once habitable, but became deadly as Vernusta got hotter over time.

Discita



Discita is an asteroid that was originally in asteroid belt, but somehow got captured by Efithra.

Mass is 9.83E+17kg, radius 39.2 km, rotational period 342 days, orbital period 1.42 days (located 62,723 km away).

Since it's very small Discita is hard to see in Efithra even with a telescope. Some evidence suggests it will merge with Efithra millions of years later.

Tonitu


Tonitu in daytime.


Night, notice the little lights coming out from alien city.


Night sky of Tonitu.

Tonitu is the second planet in Vernusta system. Its appearance is very similar to Earth, which comes from the fact that Tonitu IS the second Earth. ESI is 0.912.

Tonitu is 1.04 times heavier than Earth, radius 6,490 km, atmospheric pressure 1.02 atm, rotational period 1.10 days, orbital period 3.74 years (located 2.69 AU away).

Surface temp is estimated to be about from 23.2°C to 31.2 °C.

Its atmosphere is very similar to those on Earth, only exception being Tonitu has more carbon dioxide which can be lethal to lives on Earth.

The planet is mostly consisted of rainforests, with extremely large vegetation thanks to high percentage of carbon dioxide. Occasional storms can be seen during summer.

Not only it has wild animals and its own ecosystem, this planet also has intelligent aliens similar to mankind. Their heights are slightly small compared to humans since Tonitu's gravity is more stronger. Technology are far more advanced than humans; They're able to travel faster than light with warp drives. They've already colonized some planets beyond Vernusta system. 

Their cultures are quite similar to humans; each individual has its own free will and able to act themselves. To prohibit themselves from attacking other alien lives, it has strict law to forbid meeting or communicating with any aliens.

Tonitu has two moons. Both are heavier and larger than our Luna.

Lunev



Lunev is the first moon of Tonitu.

It's 2.36 times heavier than Luna, radius 1,926km, rotational period 189 days, oribtial period 2.96 days, located 91,215km away.

Notice the surface being very similar to Lunar. This is because it had a great impact billions of years ago.

Because it's relatively large and close to Tonitu, it creates massive tidal waves compared to Earth. This also creates magnetic field of Tonitu as it heats up the planet.

Icitianae



Icitianae is the second moon of Tonitu. Not much is known about this moon as it's far away and has no special features.

Mass is 1.11 times the Lunar, radius 1617 km, rotational period 215 days, orbital period 7.27 days, located 165,263 km away.

Albedo is quite low. Surface is mostly made up with iron oxide, making the moon look reddish.

Tascianus




Tascianus seen from Climanqu

Tascianus is the third and largest planet in the system. This planet's surface is filled 100% with water, aka. the ocean planet.

Despite being far away from habitable zone, water can still exist as liquid because of its thick atmosphere. Atmospheric pressure is estimated to be 29.5 atm, surface temperature being about 66.5°C.

Mass is 15.5 times Earth, radius 17735 km, rotational period 11.5 hours, orbital period 16.4 years, located 7.21 AU away.

It looks peaceful from outside, but you'll change your mind when you actually land on this planet. Because of its super fast rotational speed, a huge storm is frequently happening inside. This storm's wind might tear you apart and even if you survive this the pressure would crush you anyway.

This planet has no life at all because of hot temperature and stormy weather.

Tascianus originally had 5 moons, but only 2 survived as all other moons came too close to Tascianus and were ripped into pieces. A gigantic ring was formed during this event.

Climanqu



Climanqu is the first moon of Tascianus. It's appearance is very similar to Jupiter's Europa and Neptune's Triton.

Mass is 2.72 times Lunar, radius 1,866 km, rotational period 344 days, orbital period 2.12 days, located 173,844 km away.

Tascianus has massive gravity and heats up this moon. Water might exist under the icy surface because of this.

Fitiapi



Fitiapi is the second moon of Tascianus. It's very large compared to other moons on the system.

Mass is 67.9 times moon, radius 5,353 km, rotational period 228 days, orbital period 10.4 days, located 511,097 km away.

Also notice the red atmosphere that makes up the moon. Atmospheric pressure is estimated to be about 1.02 atm, even stronger than Earth's. This is possible since its surface temp is very low (-106 °C).

Atmosphere is mostly consisted of nitrogen, carbon dioxide and very few amounts of helium.

Fitiapi has its own magnetic field.

I've attached the simulation below.

Note: there is also asteroid belt and comet cloud, but got rid of it since it makes the system to look ugly + I'm too lazy to explain all of it.

Keep in mind that all planets' data are modified and it's not possible to have thick atmosphere or night side lights when created randomly. Also night side lights are somewhat missing in actual simulation, idk why this happens but will try to fix it. Orbits are quite unstable so be careful when you accelerate time. Some planets and moons can be different from this post, maybe I'll fix it.

Very nice build Vapor. Would you be able to inform me how you've modified those objects? I've tried opening the planet files but it comes up as a jumble of text. This is something I've always wanted to do to improve my systems' realism but didn't know how.

Well I am actually planning to create a new topic about editing objects.

It's not that hard. All you need to do is to save object and tweak body.json with notepad! Simple huh?

Anyway I'm still not sure about some functions and have to investigate on it. I'll talk about this soon.

Here is the Bonfnus system

(note: some of the bosied i will not say because i put they just to make what a star system NEED to look like or is decoration)

Picto and Irimampo these 2 planet are the hottest ones there is no atmosphere but some how Irimapo has an magnectic field Atitian scientists think that is by the RICH iron core

Cust a ocean plant that does not have life because of it weak magnectic field the radiation is punishing the planet so Cust is a diyng planet

Atitas the homeworld of Atitians a rece that can get 0.87 meters tall and the incredible thing is that this planet has a moon that has a moon nobody know how but is intresting

Laequir and Anax these 2 buddies are a binary dwarf planets like charon and pluto

Juop and it moons system this big gas giant has 6 moons and one of them has liquid water and if you ask yourself why is because wen this moon was formed it passed near Juop and colected it carbon rich exosphere (not the entire)

Xego-I and Xego-II these binary ice giants encountered each other in the past so this how they are binary and is a UNSTABLE orbit so there can be a collision the atitians scientists though that in the next millions year the possibilite could get of 80%

Virinis a hidden planet in one of the most outer area in the system it has 3 moons and atitian think there could hav liquid methane but is quite hard because of it Uranian inclination

CKO-20ORF a dwarf planet with a high ecentric orbit atitians belive that this dwarf planet get an ecounter with Virinis


and an atitian think that might be an 10th body on the system that is an bronw dwarf with a planet but he dint get and name for the 2 bodies
