MY ASTRONOMICAL CATALOGS [OUTDATED] AND FICTIONAL BINARY EXOPLANETS

This thread is now only useful if you are interested to see some planets orbiting the binary-multiple stars in the catalogs.

Beyond 0.974 RC2 version of Space Engine all this catalogs are directly included in SE, and their updates can be found in this thread:

Official Catalog Updates

FICTIONAL BINARY EXOPLANETS

I made this fake catalog to add some planets to binary-multiple star systems for fun. It doesn't include planets in binary browns systems, neutron stars or black holes, but you can find some of them in binary white dwarfs.

Don't expect realism, for example OB stars can't form any planets due the photoevaporation effect in the protoplanetary disk and some circumbinary planets most probably are unstable. Anyway I didn't add planets to stars already with real exoplanets or with high eccentric orbits. The systems are made for a maximum of 14 planets with also a maximum of 4 big moons (there is no dwarf moons or asteroids). The systems are made with an excel sheet you can find in the download links in the BINARY-MULTIPLE old catalog.

To install it download first the last Official Catalog Update and then download the Fictional binary planets and copy ExoplanetsFictional-bin.pak DIRECTLY in the addons folder.

Fictional Binary Exoplanets for SE 0.974 RC2 Update1

-OUTDATED CATALOGS-


BINARY-MULTIPLE STAR SYSTEMS



First of all, this catalog it's currently incomplete due the hard work to compile it. In this part I covered 45 constellations and more that 500 binary-multiple star systems, mainly in the northern hemisphere. I will keep adding constellations to the catalog but without an estimated time ending.

I added planets to the most of the stars. You can also enable or disable the Fictional Planets file in universe.cfg (read the instructions).

To add the planets I designed an Excel sheet finally becaming some kind of Excel toy. In the last page of the Excel sheet I made a Howto use guide . Compatible with single stars.

For more details of the catalog read the Installation instructions text file. The More Binaries Summary text file gives you a list of all stars and the quality of their orbits.

Finally the catalog was done for the 0.973 version of SE and not for 0.974 until is officially release. Anyway you can install over it with no problem, but most probably you will find some doubled binary-multiple stars in 0.974.

NEUTRON STARS



I made this addon lot of time ago, before the 0.972 version, I never released it due the extreamly long loading times for this catalog in 0.971. Fortunately SE team did a really great job with loading times so I'm posting this now.

The catalog is mainly catalog of pulsars from the ATNF (Australia Telescope National Facility) you can check that table here. I added some other known neutron stars not appering there and proper names for famous pulsars.

Notice that pulsars with a period below 0.01 seconds (milisecond pulsars) would appear in the rotation period data window full of zeros, that it's due the lack of precision of SE representing such low number, but don't worry, they are rotating.

I also added a couple of lists with isolated pulsars and pulsars with companions where you can check not only its name, also they location or what kind of companion the pulsar had. A lot of pulsars are located for example in Globular Clusters, others inside nebulas or even other galaxies.

Old Updates:

2 more new neutron stars in the neutron stars catalog that I found in wiki.

----------------------------------

The addon adds:

2022 Isolated Pulsars
213 Pulsar with companions.
6 more neutron stars not appering in the ATNF catalog.

----------------------------------

Download link:

Neutron Stars Catalog v0.1

Don't forget to read the instalation instructions text file.

History Version

--------------------
Old Updates:

-Added 2 more neutron stars. Updated for SE 0.973




BLACK HOLES



After doing the brown dwarfs catalog, I found a table in the same website with black holes, you can visit that table here. The author of this table is profesor Wm. Robert Johnston.

I coded this black holes to SE but I did some changes, you can read the details in the instalation instructions text file. Also I added a list with all BH present in this catalog. Notice that I didn`t include those with unknown distance unless I found that data in other sources.

Old Updates

I added the real observed orbits of the stars orbiting our galactic central black hole, you can read the article here, if you want the full article download the pdf. Please read the Installation instructions that detail how to add it.

Inside the catalog there are:

34 Black Holes with stellar mass with an stellar companion.
4 Isolated Black Holes.
8 Medium Black Holes.
50 Massive-supermassive galactic Black Holes.

----------------------------------------------------

You can download the catalog from here:

Black Holes Catalog v0.2

History Version

--------------------

Old Updates:

-Updated for SE 0.973.
-Add real orbits for the stars around the Milky Way central black hole.
Article from: http://arxiv.org/abs/0810.4674

v0.1 :

-Fixes some errors in the installation instructions text file.

----------------------------------------------------

Remember to read the Installation Instructions BH.txt file to install it.




BROWN DWARFS



This catalog adds more than 2000 substellar objects called brown dwarfs, that are bigger that a planet (more than 13 jupiter masses) but they are unable to start the protium-protium nuclear chain reaction of a typical star (less than 0.08 solar masses).

The source for this catalog is this web site Jhonston Archive Browns and the date January 2013 (sadly they updated it this last march)notice there is lot of brown dwarfs there surprised . Most of them are isolated and some easy to write in SE code with the help of excel, but the multiple brown or brown as orbiting planets were a lot of more difficult because I had to use SIMBAD database and in a few cases the wikipedia. Also I didnt include browns that appear as planets in SE because its a lot of difficult to change that. For more details about my criteria writing the catalog check the folder called documents and the text file called criteria.txt.

You wont see only browns, I also detailed a lot of binaries or multiple star systems, including some real neutron stars and white dwarfs, which around them orbits the brown. And of course binary, triple and even quadruple systems with only browns. In SE press F3 and type WD to see a list of white dwarfs or PSR for neutron stars.

You can download the catalog down here, dont forget to read the Readme Before Installing.txt to install:

Brown dwarfs v0.18

History Version

--------------------

v0.18 [UPDATE!]:

-Updated for SE 0.973

Changes from v0.17:

-Alula Australis system moved to More Binaries Catalog.

50 Massive-supermassive galatic BH.

This would probably cause problems since all galaxies in SE have a supermassive black hole at the center already.

Well I checked all black holes including the massive galactic, and I didn`t find any problem (no crashes and things like that). The only strange thing I found is that when you fix the radius in the catalog, SE seems to choose another value randomly or its just ignoring the radius value in the catalog in the planets folder.

The only problem with this addOn is that there are now two supermassive black holes in each important galaxy. What I like about it is that Saggitarious A* (and the others SM BH) can be found. However, if there is any way to merge the existing black holes and those created by you (or just make the SM BH that SE already have avariable for searching), it would be a lot better!

Given the fact this thread was created back in May this year i hope im not infringing any forums rules by posting this, i don't know what are the forum rules regarding necro threads.

Anyhow, downloaded your catalog and instaled it following your instructions, no issues whatsoever but i cant see any black holes... i.e. i do shit+h to locate and go to the milky way, once there i center it and proceed to its core but there's nothing there...

Any suggestions?, what im doing wrong?

Thanks for the catalog and thanks in advance for taking the time to read this.

As long as your response is on topic there aren't any issues to necro bumps.

Could be a driver issue or hardware issue. Post your specs and driver version, your SE log file might help too.

You could always read them, which I highly recommend you do since you have to follow them whether you know what they are or not.

In the addon there is a list with the names of all BH in the catalog (Black Holes list.txt), press F3, add one of those names and press the G key (or G+left mouse button). If it doesn't appear the BH name in the list that opens when you add the name with F3, you didn't installed well the addon.

Try for example with the names Nova Vela 1993, Nova Vul 1988, Cygnus X-1 (these have a star companion). Also you can enable orbit trajectories and see better where the BH is located, pressing the O key (not zero).

Hi.

I noticed there are possibly errors in the installation readme:

Point 3: ..."catalogs/stars/BlackHolesbars.sc.sc" <- double sc ?
Point 4: ..."catalogs/planets/BrownsMain.sc" <- there is no such file in the Black Holes Catalog.zip. Its from the Brown Dwarfs Catalog, isn't it ? Correct text should be "catalogs/planets/BlackHolesMain.sc" ?

Or am i mistaken ?

Additional, a solution for some users: SE crashed every time i fly to a black hole. Driver: newest. Universe.cfg: entrys installed. Files: copied to catalogs as described. EnableMipmapsWarp has to be false in user.cfg on amd systems.

Yes, you are right. I will correct and upload the file next week. Thank you.

Also the problem of the crashing black holes solves as you said, setting in user.cfg:

EnableMipmapsWarp false

Added (03.03.2015, 13:25)
---------------------------------------------
Corrected black holes installation instructions text file. Added new neutron stars catalog.

cirax, nice addOn (as usual). Were the SM-BH removed from the center of the galaxies so it won't cause problems with the ones already in the center of each galaxy?

Thanks pzampella, about the black holes:

First, SE generates proceduraly a black hole in every galaxy, as long as I know right now, there is no way to remove them with any command (RemoveStar doesn't work)

Second I not going to remove them from the catalog them because I tested all without any crashing problem besides the annoying fact of finding two nearby black holes sometimes. The other reason to don't remove them it is they are based in scientifical studies and observation so the data I provided for them is more realistic than the procedural ones (reason I'm uploading this catalogs).

Anyway if you or any other person want to remove the galatic blackholes just look up in the stars and planets folder archives for the tag //SUPERMASSIVE GALACTIC BLACK HOLES// and comment from the begining with /* and at the end with */ to disable them. You must do this in BlackHolesBars.sc and BlackholesMain.sc

Which addons you installed? Give some some clues. It could be that you just deleted or renamed solarsys.sc or disabled the solarsys.sc inside the universe.cfg file. Also notice that my addons dont touch any files related with our solar system.

Every addon, not just this addon, makes my solar system gone, i'm even not editing solarsys.sc. How do i fix this??
