I know it's still hard to customize and make your own systems.
This is a difficult problem to solve, but something that I am working toward in the long term.
Ideally you would be able to create planets and systems without having to edit any code at all.

In the meantime please continue to ask questions. I'm happy to help you solve these problems.

Did you resolve the issue that you were having?

I would suggest incorporating a GUI for changing the colors of bodies in the next version. Maybe, with sliders to change the color, transparency, ect and a dropdown menu for selecting textures. I hope this suggestion helps :D!

I'm extremely confused by all this.  :-[

I have the NVidia plugin, and can open the XML files in notepad, but really don't know what to do to make new body presets.

Some extremely detailed step-by-step instructions would epically help.

but really don't know what to do to make new body presets.

The items in the new body preset list is hard coded. It's not currently setup to allow the user to make additions or modifications.

The actual data values come from the Appearance.xml, LocalObject.xml, Stars.xml, and Galaxies.xml files in the 'Data' folder where the program is installed.

Note that while you're free to edit these files, any changes will be overwritten (without warning) when a new update is installed.

Ummm... You have to put ALL of the images in the folder into a movie maker, and then upload it. You may have to put it on YouTube, then post a link. Btw, it isn't a movie.
