Is it possible to add prodecural comets to a system?

So a while ago i found my favorite system, with its main star being a hot white dwarf and has a binary couple consisting of a tellow dwarf and a white dwarf, as they eclipse each other, the yellow dwarf turns from yellow to whiteish blue.
And the planets, i really liked them.
But then i found that something was missing, the comets.
So is there a way i can add procedural comets to that system?
I hope that i posted this on the right section.





Intel® Core™ i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz 2.50 GHz 750 GB hard drive 4 GB RAM intel ®HD Graphics 4000 1GB video; oh and i use a lot of commas

No, this is impossible.

Actually, there's one way you can sorta do it. First, export your solar system. Then go find another solar system that has a comet cloud about the right distance out from its sun, and export that solar system too. Then edit the two exported .sc files to copy-and-paste the comets from the second system into your favorite system (they'll all be defined in a contiguous block), using search-and-replace to ensure that they're orbiting the same primary as all the other bodies in that solar system.

Now take your hybrid solar system .sc file and add it to the Milky Way somewhere. There's guides in the modding forum for how to add a hand-crafted solar system to the game.

I think that'll work. I've transplanted asteroid belts and comet clouds from procedurally-generated solar systems into my hand-crafted solar systems before, since manually making hundreds of little asteroids would have been super tedious, and I didn't run into any gotchas.
