I managed to find a hot oceania that is 2.3 times bigger than the Earth(30172 kms!), and it is 11.8 times more massive
It is also orbiting an ice giant!

And it can produce a huge eclipse on the Ice giant.

It also has 1861 atmo pressure, and it has an axial tilt of 149 degrees.

Just found my own 'stellar collision'. A red bright giant with a blue main sequence that dives into the red bright giant in it's orbit and stays there for what has to be a incredibly long amount of time since even running the game at max time speed takes the blue star upwards of ten seconds to leave the red bright giant.

Well, contact binaries do happen in reality, and the diffuse outer layers of a red giant's atmosphere don't form much of an obstacle. I hope they get made more realistic in a future version, though. (the smaller star dragging material from the red giant and such)

Double gas giants are quite rare, Both of them having life makes it really rare, the moon is larger,the moon has rings, the planet is 12 jupiter masses and...
The 2 jupiter mass "moon" is on a quite eccentric orbit, which means it was captured.
Not sure how that could have happened.
That is such an odd binary planet system.

I found two spiral galaxies where one is within the distance of the other's spiral's diameter.
I don't know if this is rare, but it is the first that I've found:

Those appear to be two colliding galaxies. The thing I actually find surprising is that the two are procedural, since I thought only catalog galaxies can be colliding.

Wow, I just found an open cluster that is 11.677 billion years old. That is older than a large portion of globular clusters you can find.



Since the cluster is dominated by red, brown and white dwarfs, the cluster is completely invisible from a relatively large distance. It boggles my mind how an open cluster could stay intact for so long.

EDIT: Why didn't the forum just add my post to my previous one? It used to do that...

I found this moon that has life orbiting a gas giant in a binary star system. one sun is a white main sequence star, and the other is an orange dwarf star. the stars both shine on the moon. on one side, the orange dwarf shines an orange color on the moon. on the other, the white main sequence star shines a blue/white color on it. and there is a thin part where its night time. I cant belive I found this

This is actually quite common, I've found a few of these





I will be inactive on this forum for the time being. Might come back eventually

An odd question, if I may, as I've not seen anything like it in this thread so far. I know the program probably wouldn't generate anything like this, but I sort of figured that it was worth asking, for curiosity's sake.

Has there ever somehow been a star that orbited a planet? Or a planet orbiting a black hole?

I know how highly unlikely the former would be. Not entirely sure on the latter. Again, just curious. Apologies if it's a stupid question.

Obviously no, since this is physically impossible.

Sure, these exist in SE.

I don't think I've ever seen a planet orbiting a solitary black hole, though. Only when it was part of a binary system. Though often it's a T9 brown dwarf orbiting them, which isn't that far from a planet.

I have, though I don't think I've seen one in this version (yet).

EDIT: I just went hunting for some, and I did manage to find them, but they seem to be very rare, and exclusively lone ice worlds located in very distant orbits. In earlier versions there were some pretty well populated and diverse systems around black holes. Anyway, they do exist.

EDIT 2: I just found one with two planets, but again both are ice worlds in very distant orbits.

I think planets orbiting solitary black holes are an anomaly, I found 4 so far, all frozen ice giants over 400AU away from the black hole. (one had a moon with an atmosphere and purple rings! I guess the moon was orbiting on the far side of the giant when the sun went nova, allowing it to keep an atmo and rings. (yes I am making a bug is SE into a thing) wacko I would add photos if I knew how! lol Awesome that there is still light from the gas giants on the moons. they are very dark places tho. The night side is dark as HECK, great for astronomers. biggrin

EDIT: Found a brown dwarf orbiting a black hole at a distance of 700AU with a single moon with sub-glacial exotic life huh so yeah, planets around black holes? definitely a thing.

P.S. cannot find screenshots I took of it cry they were in the zone of deleted photos from last month. (I lost a lot of good screenshots from that bastard of a malfunctioning f11 key)





Along with fezes and bowties, brown dwarves are cool.
