Add TG387 (The Goblin) to Universe Sandbox 2

Please add the newly discovered planet called TG387 (The Goblin) to the list of objects in Universe Sandbox 2. Also add TG387 to the simulation of our Solar System. Please make sure that the surface texture is exactly the same as in the image below.

Its probably about to be in the game, but I wouldn't expect it to have that texture, as it is an artist's impression.

I like that texture, so I hope they add this planet with this texture and true radius and mass. This planet TG387 must be available in the list of planets section so that users can add it to new simulations.

I dont expect the developers to add an artists impression for a texture to a object predicted to be only about 300 km in diameter, which is small enough that it's given the asteroid texture. Plus, that texture is not a full surface texture, so they wouldn't be able to implement it that way unless they had artists completely make the other side of the object based off that. It'll most likely have a random texture and composition until we actually know what those are.

Well, developers can add a texture to TG387 when they finally come up with a full surface texture. A true texture must be added because its better to have a real texture rather than a random texture.

I prefer this object to have a more suitable name such as "TG387", instead of this horrific name so called "The Goblin", which makes me think of a horrific hideous creature that you see in fairy tales.

Please add TG387 to Universe Sandbox 2 when the next update is released.

Thank you.

It'll probably be under the full name of 2015 TG387

Yes, that's what I want. I want this dwarf planet to be named TG387. I hope that developers will also add a nice surface texture.

Its predicted to be small enough that it'll get the basic asteroid texture.
