You need to find a galaxy with a lot of stars

I don't think this is possible, since there are way too many stars to count in any galaxy.

Easy, look for the biggest galaxy out there, most likely an elliptical.

Version 0.97 allows you to know how many stars there are in a galaxy...
Just right click on the galaxy then click info.

RG 0-2-14-921

13.682 trillion stars

The Tadpole Galaxies is a probable winner at 256.799 trillion. Then again, it's a special case because it's actually the combined numbers from two colliding galaxies spread out over a huge area, so, should we include colliding galaxies in this?

What about IC 1101 with 578.964 trillion?

He should really state in the rules if it needs to be procedural or not.

And whether to include colliding galaxies (either as a whole if it's one object like the tadpole, or the combined number if they are generated as separate objects).

Tadpole galaxy is made of only one model (on the other hand, I made Antennae galaxy with two separate models). I don't think we could consider this galaxy as the winner of this challenge because generation of stars in model of collided galaxies is not accurate yet in SE.

That's a good rule. But even procedural galaxies are made with non-procedural models. Only their size is procedural. Just wait for procedural models of galaxies.
